The Plate-Planet Connection

How the food we eat impacts the wildlife we care about


Everything we eat has some impact on planet Earth and the animals we share it with. WWF is working to build a more sustainable food system to ensure that our diets complement nature and protect wildlife.

Between 1970 and 2010, the populations of mammals, birds, amphibians, reptiles, and fish declined by 52%. Producing food contributed significantly to this loss of biodiversity.

Consumers and food producers share a responsibility to ensure that we can feed ourselves while preserving the habitats and natural resources that wildlife need to survive.

This journey starts with understanding how our diets affect the animals we care about. Click on the images below to see the connections between different foods and species.
