Human population growth and overconsumption are at the root of our most pressing environmental problems, including the wildlife extinction crisis, habitat loss and climate change. To save wildlife and wild places, we use creative media, advocacy and public outreach to raise awareness about runaway human population growth and unsustainable consumption — and their close link to the endangerment of other species.
Our innovative campaigns — like our award-winning Endangered Species Condoms project — focus on common-sense solutions for a just and sustainable future, including the empowerment of women and girls, universal access to reproductive healthcare and education, a healthy and secure food system, clean energy and a societal commitment to giving all species a chance to live and thrive.
