On World Wildlife Day, Brentford Football Club is proud to join WWF in showing our support for the #WorldWithoutNature campaign.
To highlight the catastrophic decline of nature, WWF has removed the panda from its logo for the first time in its 60-year history.
Our world, just like our crest, is nothing without nature, and we’ve underlined that today by removing the bee from our badge across our social media channels.
Global populations of mammals, birds, amphibians, reptiles and fish have suffered an average two-thirds decline in less than half a century, according to WWF’s Living Planet Report 2020. The report also shows that if the world carries on with ‘business as usual’, rates of biodiversity loss seen since 1970 will continue between now and 2050. These losses would at best take decades to reverse, and further irreversible biodiversity losses are likely, resulting in a planet that cannot support current and future generations of people.
Later this year, governments from around the world will meet to agree a new global agreement for nature, like the one we have for climate. WWF is calling on global leaders to step up to the challenge of delivering an ambitious global plan to tackle biodiversity loss and set nature on the path to recovery this decade. Members of the public can show world leaders they care about a more sustainable future for all by adding their voice for the planet.
