SOS - Save Our Species is an answer to the global species extinction crisis, supporting on-the-ground actions all over the world where and when it can most effectively save threatened wildlife and plants, while also promoting sustainable livelihoods for local communities.
The diversity of life on our planet is breathtaking, offering a huge variety of animals and plants. We sometimes forget that we, as individuals, customers and businesses, depend on this diversity of life to provide us with the food, fuel, medicine and other essentials. Yet this rich diversity is disappearing at rates up to 1,000 times their natural level. Without immediate action, not only could many species disappear forever, but the very fabric of our society and livelihoods would be at risk.
SOS - Save Our Species brings together the expertise of the IUCN, the Global Environment Facility and the World Bank to select the best-in-class, most urgent and impactful conservation projects. SOS is already helping save over 150 species from extinction, such as Tigers, Elephants, Penguins or Snow Leopards.
The project teams collaborate closely with local communities, supporting them in taking ownership for the conservation of their environment and promoting sustainable income opportunities
SOS - Save Our Species aims to save threatened species from extinction and help them thrive again in a healthy natural habitat, while building a better, sustainable relationship between man and nature.
