Around 1 MILLION wild animal and plant species now face extinction, many within decades.
That’s why we urgently sent a letter with 73 civil society orgs calling on Signatory Parties to the Convention on Biological Diversity to take action to stop biodiversity loss!
We have a message for the state parties at Biodiversity COP15:
You CANNOT protect biodiversity without protecting the rights of Indigenous Peoples! 📣

Biodiversity loss and species extinction is IRREVERSIBLE!
That’s why it’s so important for governments to stop enabling and legitimizing industries that are contributing most to biodiversity loss!
Did you know that biodiversity decreases at a slower rate on Indigenous lands?
That’s why it’s so important to defend Indigenous rights in our fight to protect biodiversity! ✊
80% of global #biodiversity lies in the hands of Indigenous Peoples!
That’s why we cannot protect biodiversity without protecting the rights of Indigenous communities! 📣
