The Living Planet Report is produced every two years by WWF and is a health-check for the planet, showing how the natural world is doing, what threats it faces and what this means for us humans. Our latest Living Planet Report tells us that wildlife populations globally have declined by 68% since 1970. We’ve created a special version of the report especially for young people that will help students learn more about the threats facing our planet and what we can all do to help protect our natural world.
