World Wildlife Fund Living Plant Report

Since 1998, WWF’s Living Planet Report has been tracking the state of global biodiversity.

The Living Planet Report documents the state of the planet—including biodiversity, ecosystems, and demand on natural resources—and what this means for humans and wildlife. Published by WWF every two years, the report brings together a variety of research to provide a comprehensive view of the health of the earth.
