Main content

Natural ecosystems are under tremendous pressure in Europe and worldwide. There is an urgent need to protect natural landscapes and their precious wildlife as well as vital ecosystem services such as pollination, water purification, carbon sequestration, and mitigation of floods and droughts.

This is why the European Union has adopted the 2030 Biodiversity Strategy as a key part of the EU Green Deal. To help nature to thrive, we support actions that protect ecosystems and their natural dynamics.
