The Center for Biological Diversity is asking, “What does a #CrowdedPlanet look like to you?”
More than 7.2 billion people live on the planet today. As that number grows, at a rate of 227,000 people every day, animals from bees to black bears are feeling the crunch. Everywhere we live – from megacities to sprawling suburbs to rural communities – wildlife struggles to survive amidst our ever-expanding demands for space, food and resources. We want to see what sharing a crowded planet with wildlife looks like in your neighborhood.
Join the #CrowdedPlanet campaign to help us show why it’s critical to address population growth for the planet and the wildlife we share it with. Here’s how:
1) Snap a photo.
2) Use the #CrowdedPlanet hashtag.
3) Post and share on your favorite social media site.
Don’t use social media? No worries. You can email your best shots to firstname.lastname@example.org.
