A diverse world under threat

We live in an extraordinary world, where a diverse array of weird and wonderful species come together to create complex ecosystems that make life on Earth both possible and enjoyable.

Yet this is also a planet in peril. Our natural world is under great pressure from human activities that threaten to destroy the very ecosystems we depend on.

But it is not too late – if we act now, there is still time to turn the situation around and save our natural world. Read on to discover more about our amazing planet and the threats it faces, and find out how we can work together to make a real difference.

From pole to pole and from deepest sea to highest mountain, mankind is making its mark. The case for saving biodiversity has never been stronger, clearer, or more pressing. If you believe this too, I urge you to join me in supporting the work of Fauna & Flora International today.
