“Our well-being, our economies, everything depends on a healthy planet, and yet we continue to neglect it. Back FFI's Our One Home campaign to put power back into the hands of the people who most need it.”
Sir David Attenborough
The natural world is in crisis.
Scientists have warned that up to a million species could be driven to extinction this century. In the last 50 years, the world’s wildlife populations have fallen by 70%, with nature being pushed to the brink by deforestation, land conversion and poaching.
This destruction of nature is also harming the ability of ecosystems to absorb and store carbon emissions, exacerbating the climate crisis.
Covid-19 is a warning – when nature is misused and abused, there will be consequences, and human well-being will suffer.
We must urgently turn the tide, for the sake of our irreplaceable wildlife, for our incredible planet, and for humanity itself.
Despite the critical importance of intact ecosystems, it is estimated the world spends less than $90 billion a year on conservation and nature protection. In comparison, more than $5 trillion is spent every year by governments on subsidies for fossil fuels.
It is time to put nature first.
That’s why we’re calling on global governments to commit an initial $500 billion to protect nature, with that amount increasing every year.
But we cannot try to solve a crisis while simultaneously fuelling a crisis. Governments must stop funding activities and industries – such as the fossil fuel industry – that are harmful to nature.
We have a responsibility to future generations. Join us in calling on the governments of the world to step up and take this responsibility seriously - before it’s too late.
