"the extinction waiting room"

I feel compelled to share this article about the timeframe for species extinction events:
And/or if you prefer, the full report by Kew Garden:
This figure shocked me: 50,000 vascular plant species, of 390,000, at risk of extinction. MORE THAN ONE IN EIGHT.
Time to consider:
Should i work on my lists and try to log one of each kind, like Noah?
Should i consider changing my habits to make my work more applicable? Should i add relevant information to my observations such as habitat descriptors, counts of individuals, pressure by predation, invasives, or human activities?
Should I venture further to observe the under-observed, or in different seasons?
Should i work on mapping populations over time? Ranges?

Am i doing all i can do?
