By now you probably know why 350 is the most important number on the planet, but just in case, the Center for Biological Diversity has 350 reasons why you need to find out.

And you’re one of them.

The Center for Biological Diversity just launched “350 Reasons We Need to Get to 350,” a Web-based photo installation profiling 350 species threatened by global warming.

The project features some familiar faces, including the iconic polar bear and our own species, Homo sapiens. It’s also a broad introduction to scores of lesser-known creatures affected by the climate crisis. If you don’t know what a pteropod is, much less why global warming threatens its survival, you can remedy that with 350 Reasons, and also search for plants and animals in your region.

35 percent of species could be committed to extinction by 2050 if current emissions trajectories continue.

But, extinctions could be significantly reduced if emissions fall. You can get involved by taking your photo with one of our 350 species, and the 350 message which will travel to Copenhagen with the Center and Check out the photos that have already come in!
