In May 2019, the United Nations released a report warning that biodiversity on the planet was in a dangerously fast global decline. The report claimed around a million animal and plant species were under threat of extinction, the highest number in human history.

Animals can’t speak for themselves about threats to their survival, but some people have made it their life’s mission to protect Earth’s biodiversity. These researchers, activists and artists are leaders in the animal rights revolution and provide a voice for the planet’s beautiful endangered creatures.
