The Pyramid of Life
The Biodiversity is Us project wants to make as much noise as possible this year to raise awareness on biodiversity loss. What makes this year so special? WAZA prepared animated short just over 1 minute long titled "The Pyramid of Life". The animated short will premiere on 22 May 2016.

The message? The Pyramid of Life illustrates the importance of all life on our planet. Whether we look at it from the top, or from the bottom of the food chain, our lives depend on the diversity of life on earth!

We Need Your Help!

What is a 'thunderclap'? Thunderclap is a "crowd-speaking" platform that lets individuals and organizations rally people together to spread a message. On Thunderclap, backers donate tweets and social media posts rather than money. Think of it as an "online flash mob." Join our Thunderclap this year and you and others will share the message to speak up on behalf of Biodiversity, on 22 May (International Day for Biological Diversity) via Facebook and Twitter.

Please sign up today (and better yet, share this message with your friends and colleagues) to help us reach our goal of at least 100 individual signatures. It will only take a minute of your time.

The Thunderclap will be sent out on 22 May 2016. CLICK HERE TO SIGN UP NOW

We thank you sincerely in advance.
