Help Protect Habitat for Endangered Species!
The number one cause of the extinction of species (plants and animals) happening right now is habitat loss. Land is being converted at a vast rate to account for humanity’s intense growth and expansion. Agriculture, cattle ranching, palm oil plantations, and the mining industries are causing the deforestation of our rainforests, while our desert waters are being diverted and ultimately evaporating.
In a report released in April 2019, Intergovernmental Science Policy Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (IPBES) reported that “Human actions—notably agriculture and urban expansion—have ‘severely altered’ 75% of terrestrial habitats and 66% of marine environments. The rate at which species are facing extinction is 10 to hundreds of times higher than the average over the last 10 million years—and this rate is accelerating”.
GreaterGood.org is committed to the long-term protection and preservation of land all around the world, with special concentration in the areas where its species are most threatened. GreaterGood.org is committed to providing a balance between humanity and the planet so that both can cohabit naturally and harmoniously.
You can help! Just $20 protects one acre of land. You can help protect the land and the species inhabiting it. Protecting the land not only shields the natural flora and fauna of the region but it also prevents the land from being altered in significant and detrimental ways.
“Protecting nature and saving species is all about securing the land and water plants and animals need to survive”. - Jonathan Baillie, Executive Vice President and Chief Scientist of the National Geographic Society stated
