Today one million plant and animal species face extinction and to date the planet has lost 60% of terrestrial wildlife and 90% of big ocean fish. This year, delegates from more than 190 countries will gather in Kunming, China to negotiate and agree on an action plan for ending this biodiversity crisis at the Fifteenth meeting of the Conference of the Parties to the Convention on Biological Diversity (COP15).
Ahead of COP15 please join the Campaign for Nature on Wednesday 2 February 2022 at 3 – 4:00 PM CAT for a webinar on the science-based global 30×30 proposal to conserve at least 30% of the planet’s land and oceans by 2030.
Speakers will share their insights and expertise on the significant benefits that biodiversity conservation offers South Africa’s people, economy and environment. The event will be moderated by Ms. Tembisa Jordaan from Ezemvelo KZN Wildlife and followed by an audience Q&A.
