Reversing nature loss

Pioneering new modelling shows that without further efforts to counteract habitat loss and degradation, global biodiversity will continue to decline.

Building alternate versions of our living planet allows us to plan for a better future for life on Earth.

Can biodiversity loss be reversed?

Cutting-edge modelling shows that the world could start to stabilize and reverse the loss of nature.

This Bending the Curve initiative shows how this could be achieved by embracing bolder, more ambitious conservation efforts as well as making transformational changes in the way we produce and consume food, such as making food production and trade more efficient, reducing waste, and favouring healthier and more sustainable diets.

But, none of these actions, alone, will be enough.

Using the tool below can you find the combination of actions that together will bend the curve of nature loss?

That's doing something... but it's not going to be enough on it's own!

What can you do?

If we continue to destroy the natural world, we will see more outbreaks like COVID-19, and the next pandemic could be even more deadly and costly.
