🐬🐝🦊About our wildlife 🦊🐝🐬
Did you know that humans represent just 0.01% of all living things by weight? And of all the mammals on Earth, only 4% are wild animals? Since the rise of human civilisation, 83% of wild mammals have been lost… this is the 6th mass extinction, and if we don’t act now, soon our species and thousands of others won’t be able to survive on Earth. Our survival depends on the balance of the natural world.
Take action today:
• allow your garden to grow wild to attract insects
• create a hedgehog highway by cutting a small hole in your fence so they can roam from one garden to another
• eat less meat, fish and dairy products
• support your wildlife protection groups
• join the Rebellion to make some noise about it!
