Sign EAZA's 2 Degree Limit Petition!

As part of EAZA's Pole to Pole campaign, we have an opportunity to make our voices heard amongst world leaders! 

Scientists are clear about the devastating effects on human well-being, the natural world and its biodiversity that man made global warming above 2⁰C will have.  

In December 2015, the European Association of Zoos and Aquariums aim to present a petition to world leaders who will be meeting in Paris for the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change.  

This petition, which can be signed here, aims to add pressure to politicians to sign a legally binding commitment to limit global warming to a maximum of two degrees.

Please sign the petition and ask your friends to do the same!
