Did you know that if you weighed all the land mammals in the world, only 4% are wildlife?!
That’s right. Humans make up 36% of land mammals, and livestock make up a whopping 60%. We’re facing a biodiversity crisis, and our diets and farming practices are major factors in driving wildlife to the brink. Making the switch to plant-based agriculture can help alleviate pressure on wildlife by using less land and resources, and providing more on-farm habitat.
