There are currently 22,784 threatened species on the IUCN Red List, ranging from the endangered Tuxtla quail-dove to the critically endangered fringe-fingered lizard — and beyond. How to save these species? Conservationists work on this daily, using drones, DNA and more. Below, three talks from conservationists on how to save wildlife now:

Using drones to conserve natural habitats | Professor Serge Wich | TEDxLiverpool
Ecologist Serge Wich uses drones to search out elusive orangutans and threats to their well-being. Learn how in this talk from TEDxLiverpool.

Wildlife conservation through innovative technology | Priya Joshi | TEDxKathmandu
Conservationist Priya Joshi keeps track of Nepalese wildlife using DNA. In a talk at TEDxKathmandu, she discusses how the DNA endangered animals naturally shed throughout their life — skin, teeth, saliva, hair, fecal matter, etc. — reveals important information about their identity and heritage through genetic analysis.

Species conservation starts at home | Carlos Drews | TEDxEcoleHôtelièreLausanne
At TEDxEcoleHôtelièreLausanne, zoologist Carlos Drews explains the role of animals in our world, how our choices as everyday consumers affect wildlife conservation and shares stories from a life investigating the natural world.
