There are only an estimated 180 Florida panthers left on Earth, pushed to slivers of land that total just 5 percent of their historic range. It doesn’t have to be this way.
The solution is simple:
But year after year, vital habitat is lost to development or permanently altered, pushing species like the Florida panther even closer to extinction.
That’s why we need a new deal for nature—one that calls for 30 percent of the world’s lands and waters to be fully protected by 2030. We cannot wait to find the solutions our planet needs. And we cannot be silent.
Pledge to stand with The Nature Conservancy as we call on world leaders to make this ambitious goal a top priority. Time is running out to protect the lands and waters that we all need to survive.
I agree that immediate action to save our planet’s threatened lands and waters is critical. Now is the time to dedicate ourselves to fully protecting 30% of our lands and waters by 2030. Science shows us we cannot afford to wait while more than 1 million species are at risk of extinction and climate change effects are intensifying across the globe. I’m adding my voice to The Nature Conservancy’s call to world leaders in the U.S. and beyond—to act now to save nature before it’s too late.
