You've probably heard it all before that Habitat destruction, exploitation and climate change are driving the loss of the world's biodiversity.
Well, its true, its sad and yes... its still a major problem for us unless of course we try and do things a little differently.
Biodiversity is essential to ecosystem function and any threat on our ecosystems is a threat to our way of life. Our lives as we know will change, hell they're already changing, and our well-being and food security are all at risk.
Conserving biodiversity will ensure our ecosystems can deliver its services which our lives depend so heavily on.
What ecosystems do for us
the situation is desperate
Humanity has wiped out 60% of mammals, birds, fish and reptiles since 1970.
world wide fund for nature (WWF)
between 1970 and 2010, the planet has lost 52 percent of its biodiversity
IUCN RED LIST of Threatened Species
More than 31,000 species are threatened with extinction
That is 27% of all assessed species.
Flora and Fauna International
Almost 8,000 species of fish, amphibian, reptile, mammal and bird are officially categorised as globally threatened, and over 9,600 tree species are in danger of extinction.
IT STARTS WITH US
TAKING A STAND
We are determined to grow awareness of the vulnerable wildlife in Singapore, and the surrounding region, and contribute to effective change.
Wild Brew has partnered up with Nature Society, Singapore to advocate for the conservation of threatened and endangered species. Together we will use our resources to communicate important issues and contribute to the physical protection of vital habitats.
Conservation with Wild Brew starts with our beer. We want to bring people together setting up a dialogue about what we can do to protect wildlife.
Want to make a difference too? Subscribe to our news at the bottom of the page to join our #wildones community. You'll receive notifications of any clean ups, citizen science projects and other conservation actions Wild Brew gets involved with. Or, just support the cause by drinking a few wild brews in the comfort of your own home.

Identifying the conservation status
the IUCN Red List categories
Heres where Wild Brew turns to to identify a species conservation Status. The IUCN Red List is the international standard of classification and a critical indicator of the health of the world’s biodiversity.
