Remembrance Day for Lost Species (or Lost Species Day, or RDLS), 30 November, established in 2011, is a chance each year to explore the stories of extinct and critically endangered species, cultures, ways of life and ecological communities. ONCA has been one of the lead organisations supporting RDLS from the outset. However, the ways in which biodiversity loss is presented in mainstream discussions are often dominated by white-western narratives and exclusionary of people of colour. This project is part of an effort to improve ONCA’s articulation of the links between biodiversity loss, environmental injustice and racism.
