The key issues with protecting the health of the environment and biodiversity is habitat destruction  (the solution is setting aside habitat as preserves) and environmental degradation (pollution).  The solution is reducing the impact of human activity on the natural environment.  Avoiding replacement of high biodiversiity environments such as rain forests with low biodiversity environments like pastureland such as in the Amazon, or reducing the spread of  the desert into the Sahil in Africa will help with maintaining biodiversity, as will the protection of coral reefs and rich coastal areas of the oceans which are under serious threat from polution.
