We are facing the worst mass extinction event in over 65 million years. Dozens of species go extinct every single day, roughly 1,000-10,000 times the background extinction rate of just 1-5 species per year. 1-2 acres of Amazon rainforest are destroyed every second, and 30-50% of all species on Earth could face extinction by 2050.
Yet one industry, and one industry alone, emerges as a key culprit behind the sixth mass extinction of all life on Earth: animal agriculture. Animal agriculture is responsible for 71-91% of Amazon rainforest destruction, occupies 45% of Earth’s ice-free land, and accounts for more greenhouse gas pollution than every car, truck, plane, train, and every other mode of transportation on Earth combined.
The cumulative impact of animal agriculture on land degradation, greenhouse gas pollution, and species extinction can hardly be overstated, and the potential contribution of a just, plant-based food system in mitigating the worst impacts of the rapidly worsening climate and ecological emergency swiftly encroaching all life on Earth is equally profound.
Join us for our first annual Species Extinction Summit as we not only appraise the stark reality before us, but also discuss our most effective means for preventing runaway species extinction — before catastrophic climate change, complete ecosystem collapse, and profound social disruption become inevitable.
