Climate Emergency Campaign

10 years and counting. That’s how long we have left: to potentially prevent corals from being completely eradicated and to ease the mounting destruction of the Arctic.

In 2018 the the world's scientific community reported that urgent and unprecedented changes are needed to prevent increased global warming.

10 years remain to prevent 1.5 degrees warming, anything beyond a 1.5 degree increase could result in ecological collapse.

Vet Sustain recognises that the world is experiencing a climate crisis that requires an urgent and rapid global response, together with a fundamental and sustained shift in our behaviours at a personal and societal level.

We need systemic, concerted action to save ourselves, our animals and the diverse wild plant and animal species that are in decline as a result of human activity. Veterinary professionals are uniquely placed, with our multidisciplinary skill sets, to contribute to the solutions that are required to tackle the climate crisis.

"We can do more. Veterinary professionals occupy an extraordinary niche at the human-animal-environment interface that we can leverage to drive progress."
Laura Higham, Vet Sustain Founder

We believe that the global veterinary professions should declare a climate emergency.
