What Does This Mean?

Habitat loss is one of the main drivers of species extinction globally, and nearly 50% of the land on earth has been converted from natural ecosystems to human environments. Now, animals and plants find themselves with fewer and fewer places to live, thrive and raise their young.

In cities and suburbs, the last refuges for wildlife are often urban green spaces, which provide water, food, and places to safely raise young in a sea of concrete, strip malls, and manicured lawns. The core tenets of Leave No Trace empower everyone to take care of our environment.
