The Living Planet Report 2014 shows Ecological Footprint – a measure of humanity's demands on nature – continuing its upward climb. Taken together, biodiversity loss and unsustainable footprint threaten natural systems and human well-being, but can also point us toward actions to reverse current trends.

The reports show globally populations of fish, birds, mammals, amphibians and reptiles have declined 52 per cent in the 40-year period measured by the report. The decline of biodiversity in the wider Asia-Pacific region ranks only behind Latin America in the same period.
