We are experiencing the greatest loss of species since the extinction of dinosaurs. Humans have caused it and only humans can stop it.

The BIODIVERSITY FOUNDATION has taken on the task of raising awareness about the causes and dangers of extinction. At the same time we want to highlight possible countermeasures. The heart of our work is presenting scientific findings about the development of biodiversity, in an understandable form, to as many people as possible.
