Our ecosystems sustain every living thing on the planet. And today, they’re collapsing. If we don’t act, right now, every single person on Earth will be threatened by extinction.
Already we’ve lost 70% of animal populations since 1970. Our planet will become a wasteland, devoid of life and unable to feed, nurture, and shelter us.
Animals are critical to our ecosystems: our forests, our seas, our rivers all depend on them. With fewer animals, the climate will become more extreme, and our environment more vulnerable. As animals vanish, our chances of survival grow smaller.
Together we have the power to reverse this crisis.
But the clock is ticking — fast.
We’re living in the midst of the sixth mass extinction event. And the scale of the problem is not being fully represented or communicated.
Biodiversity and climate change aren’t two separate problems. They’re different faces of the same threat. And when one worsens, so does the other. Species are disappearing one hundred times faster than the natural rate – which means that in a single year, we’re losing as many species as we would normally lose in a century.
By 2030, our chance to save the world – and ourselves – will be very slim.
WHAT WE DO DURING THE NEXT 15 YEARS WILL DEFINE THE FUTURE OF EVERY LIVING THING – INCLUDING US.
