Nature underpins our society & economies yet we're destroying it faster than it can replenish itself. This year, we have the chance to secure an ambitious global agreement which addresses the drivers of nature loss & sets nature on the path to recovery by 2030 #Biodiversity2020

We could be eating up to 5 grams of plastic every week, which enters the food chain when marine life eats microplastics. Has your country joined the movement to #StopPlasticPollution yet? bit.ly/38Dn4g7
Governments are listening! India just joined African, Caribbean, EU, Nordic and Pacific countries calling to explore a new global treaty to #StopPlasticPollution. Urge other governments to join this movement at go.panda.org/plastics
Last year, in just one case scales from around 50,000 pangolins were seized by Chinese customs following a year-long investigation. We need a #NewDealForNature to #ProtectPangolins and other species from poaching and habitat loss.
#Pangolins are threatened by #poaching and trade for their scales, which are perceived by some to have medicinal properties in China and Vietnam, as well as for their meat. Habitat loss in Africa and Asia is another reason for the drastic decline in pangolin numbers.
Saturday was #WorldPangolinDay. In the past year, the plight of the relatively unknown #pangolin has reached the media. These scaly anteaters are the most heavily trafficked wild mammals in the world. All 8 species of pangolin are on the @IUCNRedList of Threatened Species
Loss of nature could wipe USD $9.87tn off global economies by 2050 if business as usual continues. The Global Futures Report is a stark warning: without urgent action to protect nature, economic prosperity will be affected on a global scale. panda.org/globalfutures

Our home is on fire. Since September, Australian bushfires have caused the deaths of at least 30 people, destroyed over 2,774 homes, burnt through 10.7 million hectares of land, and killed an estimated 1.25 billion animals. #ausfires

"We are losing nature too fast. We need a global compass for nature to be agreed in 2020 by governments and business, as we did for climate in Paris."

#WEF20#NewDealForNature & People
At the #Davos Nature Dinner, @jrockstrom & @WWF_DG outline the emerging consensus around what a #NewDealForNature & People must achieve to secure a sustainable future for people & planet: zero net loss of nature from 2020, net positive by 2030, and full recovery by 2050 #WEF20
Koala Detection Dogs located seven surviving koalas in the burnt-out forest at Maryvale on Queensland’s Southern Downs.
This wouldn’t have been possible without the support from our global WWF community, @WWF_Australia and online furniture retailer @KoalaMattress🐨💚
Devastating forest fires across the world in the past year show that we are edging towards dangerous tipping points that our planet can’t recover from. 2020 is the time for urgent action.
As heads of state and business leaders meet @wef 2020 in #Davos, we need to make our voices heard.
Together we can effect change if we make enough noise. Join us in calling for a #NewDealForNature & People! panda.org/voice
Without nature, humanity cannot thrive, highlighting the urgent need to put nature on a path to recovery✊🌏

❗ Germany has announced it will phase out #coal power plants... in 18 years.
❗❗ Science says we need to halve global emissions in just 10 years.
❗❓ This doesn't add up! We need more ambitious action on the #ClimateCrisis now says @WWF_Deutschland: ow.ly/2sVK50xX7JA
Countries must update their national climate plans before @ukcop26, especially those with high emissions, and submit ambitious national climate pledges aligned with science if we are to have any hope of limiting #GlobalWarming to 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels #COP26
