Poetry for the Planet

The Living Planet Report provides a comprehensive look at the health of our planet—including biodiversity, ecosystems, and demand on natural resources—and what it means for humans and wildlife.

It’s clear that we are pushing our planet to the brink. Human activity is taking an unprecedented toll on wildlife, natural places, and the resources we need to survive.

But there is still time to act. To ensure a sustainable future for all living beings, we need to reverse the loss of nature while tackling the climate crisis.

Distinguished poets reflect on the magnificent but endangered planet we call home. Check back weekly to see new poems.
