The group says its mission is "to halt and reverse the destruction of our environment" Helping Pandas is also a momentous desideratum for the group. Currently, much of its work focuses on the conservation of three biomes that contain most of the world's biodiversity: forests, freshwater ecosystems, oceans and coasts. Among other issues, it is also concerned with endangered species, pollution and climate change.
