"Biocultural Diversity"

"Areas of high biodiversity (diversity of plant and animal species and their habitats) tend to coincide with a high number of distinct ethnic groups speaking different languages."

The Center for Biological Diversity, a Tucson-based group, has recently acknowledged that there needs to be an Endangered Species Act for languages and cultures. For thought-provoking shock value I've included some of my favorite drawings of ice age and post-ice age Europe.
