The ecosystems of our planet are currently under dire threat due to global warming and the advent of climate change. Every day, an average of 150 species become extinct due to human influences, a pattern which at the current state of things is set to accelerate in the future. As a result, conservation has become more important than ever, as failing to take action now will result in a cataclysmic global mass extinction that may ultimately come to threaten the survival of human kind.
To do our part in saving the ecosystems, The British School in Tokyo (BST) is planning a trip to Fiji in order to contribute and help to research alongside a conservation group called Operation Wallacea (Opwall). Since 1995, Opwall has conducted research that has directly led to the discovery of 31 new species, along with finding evidence to publish 270 scientific papers. The research being done there is a critical part of preventing the collapse of ecosystems, as scientific papers are vital in instigating the necessary law changes needed to halt climate change. Furthermore, the research prevents misinformation about climate change, which helps spread awareness of the situation and ultimately increases our chances of defeating climate change. The goal of the expedition is to spend two weeks in Fiji alongside the Opwall team, in order to help them gather evidence to support their research.
The BST team needs your help in order to fund the trip. By funding the expedition, you bring us one step closer to ensuring a prosperous future on Earth for us all, one which is not threatened by the destruction of our ecosystems.
