The United Nations released a new report with sobering news: At least 1 million species are at risk of extinction due to human-related causes. This loss of biodiversity is not only devastating in terms of the incredible species that will disappear in the coming decades, but also, as the report warns, for how it will affect human survival. After all, our well-being is inextricably tied to the well-being of nature, and wildlife extinctions can threaten food security, clean water and the climate.
Whether you're concerned about the future of other species or your own, this report isn't an excuse for despair — it's a call to action.
The Center is continuing to fight the extinction crisis in many ways. Not only are we working to protect endangered species and wild spaces, but we're also fighting for the transformation of our food system, a transition to clean and renewable energy, and solutions to unsustainable population growth. We need you to stay in this fight with us.
There's still hope — and thousands of species are counting on us.
