We are in the midst of a biodiversity crisis – discover how you can help.

What are biodiversity projects?

Biodiversity means the variety of plant and animal life in the world. Many biodiversity statistics paint a startling picture of decline. Fortunately, there a range of charities and companies trying to reverse this trend and their biodiversity projects need support. These projects include the creation of new habitat, protection of existing habitats, pollution reduction and support for targeted species. Zellar brings together projects from across the UK and abroad so that you can find the project best suited to you.

The global Living Planet Index shows an average 68% decrease in population sizes of mammals, birds, amphibians, reptiles and fish between 1970 and 2016.

Why does this matter? It matters because biodiversity is fundamental to human life on Earth, and the evidence is unequivocal – it is being destroyed by us at a rate unprecedented in history.(1)

75% of the Earth’s ice free land surface has been significantly altered (2)
80% of the original forest that covered the Earth 8,000 years ago have been cleared, damaged or fragmented (3)
1 in 4 remaining European mammals face a high risk of extinction (4)

biodiversity projects

All businesses have some impact on the world’s land use and biodiversity loss. This impact is not easy to measure but it does not remove our collective responsibility to act. You can make a difference by changing your internal operations and by supporting external projects. Supporting biodiversity projects improves your brand image, allows you to connect with local sustainable projects and attracts customers, employees and investors. It’s also the right thing to do.
