Fauna & Flora International (FFI) is asking for your support to call on global governments to commit an initial $500 billion to protect nature, with that amount increasing every year. Sign the petition now and protect Our One Home.
“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
Putting funding in the right place
It is estimated that the world spends less than $90 billion a year on conservation and nature protection. In comparison, governments spend more than $5 trillion every year on subsidies for fossil fuels.
We need to act now
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.
