LOSS OF BIODIVERSITY
Biodiversity is being destroyed in front of our very eyes. The level of loss has forced us into the sixth mass extinction. 1 million species already face extinction and many are disappearing 1,000 to 10,000 times their natural extinction rate. Biodiversity can’t keep up with our demands and is fading away.
EXTINCTION IS FOREVER
Since 1970, we have lost 60% of our mammals, birds, fish and reptiles, and two-thirds of our invertebrate friends like bugs and bees. When compared to the human population, that’s the equivalent of emptying North America, South America, Africa, Europe, China and Oceania.
WE MUST ACT NOW
There’s no second chance with extinction. We need to act now. From planting bee-friendly gardens and curbing your plastic use to organizing community conservation activities and voting in local, municipal and federal elections, we can all make a difference. Even small acts can have a ripple effect.
