Sir David Attenborough — renowned wildlife presenter, sustainability advocate, and conservationist — has joined other distinguished patrons of Population Institute Canada in a bid to highlight the dangers of relentless global population growth to humanity and the planet. Read more on Sir David’s life, career, and conservation efforts on PIC’s Patron page.
PIC is the voice of Canadians concerned with overpopulation and its negative human and environmental impact. Founded in 1992, it campaigns to increase support for reproductive health and education and for universal, voluntary access to family planning, which the UN notes “…could bring more benefits to more people at less cost than any other single technology available to the human race.”
Fact: Continued global population growth, together with overconsumption, is incompatible with a healthy, sustainable future for humanity and our planet. Patrons: Sir David Attenborough; Robert Bateman; Margaret Catley-Carlson; Drs. Paul & Anne Ehrlich; Robert Fowler; Dr. William Rees; Dr. David Schindler; Ronald Wright. See patron bios.
