Our wildlife is facing a ‘double-edged sword’ of climate change and habitat loss.

Habitat loss is inextricably linked to climate change. This is why climate change is one of the most important issues we’re working on to help conserve the amazing animals which share our world.

But remember – we can all do our part to reduce our environmental footprint!
