The Endangered Wildlife Trust breaks the population taboo

Every conservationist I’ve met, during two years’ research on human population impacts, has agreed population growth to be one of the most significant threats to biodiversity. Finding a major regional or international conservation NGO which was prepared to say this was, until now, somewhat harder.

This week the Endangered Wildlife Trust (EWT) became the newest member of the Population and Sustainability Network (PSN). Based in London, PSN is an independent body which also coordinates an international network of organisations recognising the importance of population and consumption impacts as significant factors in sustainable development. PSN raises support for, and investment in, sexual and reproductive health services which respect and protect rights. In becoming a member of PSN the EWT joins founder members including the United Nations Population Fund, the UK government’s Department for International Development, the International Planned Parenthood Federation and several smaller conservation organisations promoting the integrated approach to development known as “Population, Health and Environment”.
