The United Nations’ new report on the state of our environment shows that as many as 1 million species could be extinct within decades. Our planet’s diversity of species has plummeted at an alarming rate.
Why? Our natural world is being altered at an alarming rate, and species are paying the price. Forests are being slashed, development is forcing wildlife from its home, and illegal trafficking is taking a grave toll. Many species are dangerously close to extinction fighting against the odds.
We cannot let this vicious cycle continue—as we degrade nature, climate change becomes more severe. And as climate change worsens, it accelerates the loss of precious lands, waters and wildlife.
Leaders around the world are preparing to gather at the U.N. to make new commitments to policies that protect nature and species. Pledge to stand with The Nature Conservancy as we call on global leaders to back strong international action to stop biodiversity loss.
Together, we can protect nature and ensure that our planet thrives. But only if all nations and businesses step up to the challenge.
