European governments and the European Union must take a lead in halting global ecological collapse, warned Friends of the Earth Europe, in reaction to a major global assessment published today.

In the wake of shocking reports of insect and wildlife decline, attention is turning on intensive farming in Europe.

One in four mammals and one in eight birds are now threatened with extinction, as forests and other irreplaceable habitats are degraded and destroyed. Three species become extinct every hour.

 

Friends of the Earth Europe campaigns to end this alarming decline in species worldwide. Biodiversity forms the basis of existence for future generations. We aim to put this message at the heart of ongoing European debates, and support our national and local groups to preserve biodiversity on the ground.
