Since summer 2022, other media have at last thankfully also discovered the major issue of biodiversity and the imminent UN Conference COP15. In part, this can be directly attributed to the influence of Countdown Natur – as mentioned in an editorial comment in the reputable German newspaper “Süddeutsche Zeitung” on 30.09.2022. We also know that other media are now using “Countdown Natur” as a source for their own reporting. Since its inception, Countdown Natur’s has developed a clear profile as the biodiversity project in the field of German-language journalism. Its output rivals that of the only other comparable project worldwide – the Guardian’s “Age of extinction” – whose resources are many times larger.
