In my opinion there are three things one can do to save the natural diversity
in the world.

The most important is to work to limit the growth of the human population to
zero and actually to decrease (in the long run) the total number of human
inhabitants of the earth.

The second is to ensure that the number of unwanted children that are born is
minimized, so that those children that are brought into the world know what it
is like to be well-cared for, and in turn, can care for someone and something
else, e.g., the natural world.

The third is to become active in organizations such as the Nature Conservancy,
Sierra Club, local plant and animal groups, etc.

Of course, unless human population growth is brought to zero, prospects for
ultimately saving natural diversity are nil.
