You’re part of nature, too.


Everything we depend on to survive comes from nature.

Our food, oxygen, materials for shelter and clothing, ingredients for life-saving medicines—it’s all from nature, and all dependent on biodiversity. (That’s the term for the variety of life on Earth, from bees to berries to bacteria.) Protecting nature today and working to preserve it for tomorrow just isn’t optional.


There are 1.5 million different kinds of living things on Earth that we know of. When most of them are thriving, the planet hums along—and we thrive too. But right now, that’s not the case.

We’re losing whole populations of mammals, birds, fish, reptiles, amphibians and insects at 1000 times the historical rate. It’s the beginning of what could amount to an unprecedented butterfly effect: when the food chain breaks down, human life is in serious peril.

We take from nature, so we must respect and preserve it.
