Nature emergency! WWF’s Living Planet Report 2022 reveals a devastating 69% drop in wildlife populations 🐨🦧🐬🐘🐸 on average in less than a lifetime • Tropical regions face wildlife populations plummeting at a staggering rate • Freshwater species populations have suffered an 83% fall • The report’s Living Planet Index shows that there is no time to lose in securing a nature-positive society Monitored wildlife populations* - mammals, birds, amphibians, reptiles and fish - have seen a devastating 69% drop on average since 1970, according to WWF’s Living Planet Report (LPR) 2022. The report highlights the stark outlook of the state of nature and urgently warns governments, businesses and the public to take transformative action to reverse the destruction of biodiversity. Commenting on the findings, Marco Lambertini, Director General of WWF International, said: “We face the double emergencies of human-induced #climate change and #biodiversity loss, threatening the well-being of current and future generations. WWF is extremely worried by this new data showing a devastating fall in wildlife populations, in particular in tropical regions that are home to some of the most biodiverse landscapes in the world.” “At the #COP15 biodiversity conference this December, leaders have an opportunity to reset our broken relationship with the natural world and deliver a healthier, more sustainable future for all with an ambitious nature-positive global biodiversity agreement,” said Dr Lambertini. “In the face of our escalating nature crisis, it’s essential this agreement delivers immediate action on the ground, including through a transformation of the sectors driving nature loss, and financial support to developing countries.” Read the full report: http://wwf.se/lpr #LivingPlanet #LPR2022 #WWF

      Alarming numbers. Immediate action is necessary to stop these numbers from growing. They are living beings just like us!!!

        If we don’t act we will bring down entire ecosystems. This is horrific for wildlife, but if we humans can’t see beyond ourselves, we should note that stopping mass extinction is in our own self interest - perhaps survival

          These numbers are mind-boggling: according to the report, it is akin to the human population of Europe, the Americas, Africa, Oceania and China disappearing.

            I ask you to read it and to act. Remember that "acting" does not always equate to you, but can just as well mean a contact with a politician or a company. Don't forget that you reach millions through the We Don't Have Time platform.

              Really sad. All efforts towards climate restoration required to revert this effects.

                Extremely sad. The data shows a devastating fall in wildlife populations, especially in tropical regions that are home to the most biodiverse landscapes in the world.

                    These are very alarming numbers, I hope COP15 will take proper action
