What Will Our Conservation Story Be?

#ConservationStory

The story of our wildlife today seems bleak. Earth is on the brink of a sixth mass extinction; we are losing species at a rate as much as 100 times faster than normal.

Over 23,000 species of plants and animals are threatened with extinction.

The black rhino population is down 97.6% since 1960.

Fewer than 900 mountain gorillas remain on Earth.

Africa's elephants could be gone forever within our lifetime.

But today we can take action. Today we can create change.

Today we can add our voice to the #ConservationStory around the world.

Let's make 2016 the year we change history. Let's write a new #ConservationStory.
