About the Campaign

About the Campaign

Take Extinction Off Your Plate is a project of the Center for Biological Diversity’s Population and Sustainability program, launched in 2014. To save wildlife and wild places, the Population and Sustainability program uses creative media and public outreach to raise awareness about runaway human population growth and unsustainable consumption in the United States — and the close links to the endangerment of other species. Meat production is responsible for more environmental degradation than any other single industry… and it will only get worse as the human population grows, unless we take drastic steps to change our unsustainable eating habits and adopt an Earth-friendly diet.



The Center for Biological Diversity Menu Policy


The Center for Biological Diversity recognizes livestock production as one of the greatest threats to wildlife and the planet. Consistent with our Earth-friendly Diet campaign, which urges people to reduce meat consumption as a critical means of reducing their environmental footprint, it’s the Center’s policy to serve vegetarian-only menus at events where food is provided by the organization.
