Southern elephant seals (Mirounga leonina) on King George Island, Antarctica. In an article in this issue, William Arlidge and his colleagues describe the potential value of applying a mitigation hierarchy to human activities that negatively affect biodiversity and species such as this one. According to the authors, evaluating all anthropogenic biodiversity effects through such a mitigation hierarchy could help in the prioritization of conservation goals and conservation investments.
