Biodiversity loss can be just as detrimental to humans and the environment as climate change, but this topic appears to attract less media attention. Research has shown that humans benefit greatly from biodiversity in the form of ecosystem services, which can include pollination from bees and other insects and forests preventing erosion. This study examines media coverage of biodiversity loss among two U.S. newspapers with the largest circulation, the New York Times and the Wall Street Journal. Through contrast and comparison of newspaper coverage from the past 5 years, this study seeks to better understand how biodiversity loss is framed in the media.
