Our planet’s grasslands are the rich home to our big land animals, but they’re also shrinking. Life in our grasslands depends on space.What can you do?
Our grasslands are shrinking. They once covered a quarter of our planet, but as the human population exploded, we've turned our grasslands into farmland and replaced wild herds with domestic ones. A revolution in diets and farming will make the best use of the land we've already claimed and allow space for our wild grasslands and the life that depends upon them.
96% of the mass of all mammals on Earth is now us humans and our livestock. All the wild mammals together - deer, elephants, mice, etc - add up to only 4%.

The habitats that make up our planet are connected and reliant upon each other. The astonishing diversity of life on earth depends on these global connections.
Our poles are some of the earth's last remaining wildernesses. And yet just as we are beginning to understand these extraordinary places, they are changing fast.
In jungles, everywhere is special. Host to a staggering array of species, they are the oldest and most diverse ecosystems on our planet.
We are uniquely reliant on trees – without them, life as we know it would not exist. We’ve exploited our forests through the ages, but if we give them the chance, they will bounce back.
Our planet’s grasslands are the rich home to our big land animals, but they’re also shrinking. Life in our grasslands depends on space.
Without fresh water, life on land wouldn't exist. It is the most precious resource on our planet, but it's finite. Every drop is vital for all species and us humans that rely upon it.
Our coastal seas are a rich community of plants and animals working together, all of which are vital to the health of our planet and humanity.
