the

challenge

If you agree that conserving Biodiversity is important, then consider the things that you could do to make a difference in conserving the natural world. Changing human behaviors is one of the biggest challenges in conserving biodiversity, what can you do to make a difference?

 

Here are our top 2 suggestions for things you can do that will make the biggest difference to the 2 species that we are working to protect.

  • Encourage your family and extended family to take an active interest in anything that helps protect wildlife.

  • Actively follow and support initiatives to protect the South Eastern Atlantic Forest.

And here are our top 3 suggestions on behaviors that protect the environment and biodiversity from further harm: 

  • Eat less meat; Brazilian beef production for worldwide consumption is a major contributor to deforestation and landscape fragmentation.

  • Reduce your carbon footprint, promote sustainable living methods, avoid buying disposable plastic!

  • Find some time to plant back some trees, you will enjoy it more than you think!
