Voices For Our Planet is all about giving a greater voice to the people who are working to find or implement solutions to our planet’s problems.
The IUCN Red List states that over 23,250 species are threatened with extinction, including 25% of mammals and 13% of birds. Meanwhile, around 795 million people do not have enough food to lead a healthy active life, and the World Food Programme calculates that’s about one in nine humans.
But there’s also great hope, and heroes are working to solve these challenges. Dedicated teams and individuals are creating innovative solutions and managing charitable and organized efforts to help make a positive difference for our planet.
We are honored to join those people who are trying to stop animal extinctions, support people in developing countries (and closer to home), and help our planet in so many ways. And You are needed. We can solve these challenges if everyone works together, if everyone does something.
At age three, I stood in awe, transfixed in front of the tigers’ enclosure at the Toronto Zoo. Since then, my love of wildlife has helped to support numerous conservation organizations. As I learned more, I realized that the world’s people also need to be helped. Those who are involved in Africa’s bush meat and similar operations need alternatives that respect both people and wildlife, before they empty the forests. And research shows that helping women and educating girls leads to real change.
I also enjoy helping business owners achieve success. MBA educated and with experience in over 145 different industries, I manage my own business. I help other business owners by developing business and marketing plans, raising their online presence, and conducting research projects through Route One Research & Marketing Services.
