Bees and other wild pollinators are rapidly declining. And wow, we also know that more than 1 million species are at risk of extinction – and the problem is only getting worse. In fact, we’re doing so much damage to the natural environment that we’re putting our own survival at real risk.
That’s the conclusion of the largest study ever conducted on biodiversity and life on our planet Earth, just released by the United Nations. With the natural environment being destroyed at a record rate, wild animals, marine life – including bees and other insect life – are all disappearing at alarming speeds.
The authors of the report describe the picture as deeply “ominous”, and warn that we’re putting the wellbeing of all life – including our own – at profound risk if we don't take immediate and fundamental action to change course.
But it’s not too late to turn the situation around. The report is clear that with urgent action at all levels, life on Earth can still thrive.
That’s why we need Europe to take a clear stand to protect our biodiversity – by immediately stopping the flow of public money used to fund intensive farming and harmful pesticides. Let’s save the bees, and all life on Earth!
