Approximately one million plant and animal species are currently facing extinction.
That is why it’s so important for COP15 - the UN Biodiversity Conference - happening in Montreal this month. It’s crucial that our world leaders are made aware of the biodiversity crisis so that they can put measures in place to protect and support the ecosystems humanity relies on for survival.
As biodiversity decreases, climate change increases, as does the risk of novel zoonotic diseases, such as COVID-19. All of this has been driven by human activity, so it’s imperative that humans are the ones to fix this.
What is adopted in Montreal will essentially be a global blueprint to save the planet’s dwindling biodiversity.
That’s why the COP15 UN Biodiversity Conference is so important!
Acting to address biodiversity loss has never been more urgent!!
