Click this link (>), take the quiz and find out: Which Endangered Animal Are You? 

 

It can be difficult to know where to start with conservation. The worldwide problem of climate change just seems so insurmountable. However, unlike a Hollywood movie, this catastrophe isn't going to be averted by leaping out of helicopters, spraying bad guys with miniguns or releasing two-hours worth of controlled explosions. Unfortunately, there is no single eye-patched villain behind climate change.

Instead, every single one of us, complicit in the rapid expansion and excessive consumption of our species, is responsible. Any of us who've been using modern transport have been burning fossil fuels, heating the atmosphere, whilst also causing the gradual acidification of the ocean, killing coral reefs. And those of us who've been eating meat are encouraging expansive agriculture that leads to natural habitat destruction, methane emissions and overgrazing.

Painful as it might be to admit it, these are all consequences of the way in which we live, day-by-day. Indeed, habit destruction and climate change are the two chief concerns threatening the survival of all our fellow animals.

So, what can we do to push back?

Well, we thought we'd start with this simple game in which we'll introduce you to your endangered spirit animal. As a result, we hope you'll be able to learn a little more about some of the beautiful species currently teetering on the verge of extinction. At the end you'll find information describing exactly how you can help each animal...
