The planet's biodiversity needs your help!
The planet's biodiversity (the type and number of species of plants, animals, other life forms, and habitats) is declining, both locally and globally and not only that, but the decline is accelerating. Many species are dying out; it is estimated 50-150 per day. E.g. species of apes, birds, butterflies, plants and entire ecosystems are being lost forever. The sheer magnitude of the loss and threatened loss is staggering.
Biodiversity loss is a result of man's actions and inaction. We can not let it be our generation's legacy that we just let this happen.
Together we can stop the inaction!
We have a plan (see below) to get governments to really tackle the mass extinction topic. However for this to work the nature desperately needs your help!
It only takes you a couple of minutes to do the minimum and it does not cost you anything or require any further effort on your behalf! (donations and volunteering are optional)
The Biodiversity vision campaign calls for politicians to do what scientists agree needs to be done for Biodiversity

Our biodiversity vision plan is clear:
⚫ ensure biodiversity
through a global campaign for the enhancement of biodiversity... (Read more)
We demand a massive effort for biodiversity protection by governments. Land to be assigned or bought to form green corridors to facilitate the migration of species from low to high altitude and from south to north across continents; to ensure the survival of various organisms. Many different large and small projects should be initiated that will lead to the enhancement and protection of biodiversity, targeting both habitats and species.
⚫ spreading and promoting the scientific consensus
to the general public and with their support engage governments to act... (Read more)
We have not met any scientist in any discipline that believes that we are doing enough to protect biodiversity. Even though there are many good projects, scientists are of the opinion that we are doing way too little. However the general public does not seem to be fully aware what a clear and present danger this is to our planet and therefore there is very little public pressure on politicians to massively step up biodiversity conservation.
We see our task as being three pronged:
To give the scientists a common voice for even though they believe strongly that not enough is being done about biodiversity, they are not exactly shouting their heads off about it.
To encourage politicians to make biodiversity a campaign issue.
To get the general public to appreciate this issue and demand action by the politicians. A grass root approach.
Politicians need to see biodiversity as a critical topic no matter where they stand on the political spectrum, reinforced by calls from the general public and scientists. This is a necessary precursor to taking the extensive measures that saving the planet’s ecosystems entails.
⚫ building up to extensive measures
without which the mass loss of species would continue... (Read more)
Biodiversity Vision will motivate governments to set aside substantial funds to enhance and protect biodiversity. What has been done so far is too little: the dramatic mass extinction of species is even accelerating, same as the loss of threatened habitats. Over a third of all amphibian species world wide are threatened by extinction. Insect populations are dwindling worldwide at an unprecedented speed, leaving many other species higher in the food chain in grave danger of extinction. These are just two indicators of an ongoing worldwide massive loss of species. This decline has to be stopped! Our grand goal is that governments worldwide assign 2% of the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) for biodiversity protection and enhancement measures*. We owe it to our future generations to preserve the Earth’s biodiversity. This is of utmost importance because nature and biodiversity form the very basis of our own existence. And what is more, a world without all those species and interesting habitats is unimaginably sad and boring.
*By comparison, many nations use 2% on defense. Defending biodiversity is at least as important!
We need your and other people's support:
To build a global campaign that will get politicians to take measures to protect biodiversity beyond the current superficial level.
