Keepers of the planet's "Red List" of endangered species will meet in the southern French city of Marseille next year, where they will try to rally support for efforts to stem climate change and biodiversity loss.Some say the planet is already undergoing a "mass extinction event", the first since the dinosaurs disappeared about 65 million years ago, and only the sixth in the last half-billion years.Next year's IUCN congress coincides with the formal implementation of the landmark 2015 Paris climate accord, which aims to cap global warming at "well under" 2 Celsius (3.6 degrees Fahrenheit) and 1.5 C if possible.
