The latest (2018) Living Planet Report tells us that wildlife populations globally have declined by 60% in less than 50 years. A shocking fact, but there is hope. We can reverse the damage and protect our planet for future generations – but only if we act now.
The “Living Planet” report is published every two years by WWF with the contribution of leading experts. It is a comprehensive description of the “health” of the planet, showing us the state of the natural world, the threats it receives and what it means for humanity.
This year WWF has created report version especially for young people with fresh language and infographics to help pupils learn more about the threats, the causes, and what we can all do to help protect our natural world. The Living Planet Report for young people is FREE to download and teachers can also access their supporting classroom resources and activities.
