UN Development Goal:

Life On Land

Of the 8,300 animal breeds known today, 8% are extinct and 22% are greatly endangered

It’s no surprise that human life depends on the earth as much as it does the ocean. Plant life provides 80% of our human diets and we rely on agriculture as an important source of economic resources and means of development. Our global forest provides habitat for keystone species and act as giant filtration systems for clean air and water. In more recent times, the sheer amount of land degradation and deforestation has led to drought and the greatest loss of arable land in history.
