Forests are home to 80 percent of the world’s terrestrial biodiversity. We’re losing thousands upon thousands of species every year, with up to 50 percent of all species at risk of disappearing completely by 2050.
Our world is facing the greatest extinction crisis since the fall of the dinosaurs some 65 million years ago. The future of many of Earth’s plants and animals will be determined within the next few decades.
Because our lives are so intertwined with the forest’s great bounty, our fate—as well as the fate of millions of plants and wildlife species—is at stake. It is up to all of us to act responsibly and to be good stewards of the Earth’s forests.
