By mid-century, there will be an estimated addition of 25 million kilometers of paved roads globally – enough to encircle the Earth more than 600 times. Ninety percent of these new roads will be in places that sustain the planet's most biologically rich and environmentally important ecosystems.

Population Media Center (PMC) works around the world to improve the health and well-being of both people and planet. Our approach – mission-driven, highly-engaging entertainment programming — is exciting, unique, and highly effective. Your help in increasing PMC’s international impact, with a donation to our #GETREEL annual campaign, will be leveraged all around the world and to its fullest extent.
