Karma means action
The KARMA Mission

The word karma is derived from the sanskrit karman, which means action. So the concept of karma is about cause and effect.

1 Million animal and plant species are threatened with extinction within decades
Loss of biodiversity is accelerating and reaching unprecedented rates: 100 to 1000 times faster than normal! This is not just about pandas, polar bears or other emblematic species. All kinds of living beings are threatened: insects, birds, plants, coral reefs... As many as 30 to 50% of all species could become extinct by 2050.

Animal suffering is at
an all time high

Billions of animals are treated like commodities and endure horrific living conditions on factory farms – 70% of meat comes from industrial farming, up to 99% in the US!

And yet, scientists have demonstrated that animals can experience pain, anxiety and suffering the same way humans do. Beyond cruelty, treating animals as resources has disastrous consequences for the environment.

Livestock factory farming alone contributes to almost 15% of global greenhouse gas emissions. It causes all kinds of degradation, such as deforestation and pollution of water and soil, destroying the natural habitat of millions of animals. It also threatens our health by increasing the likeliness of new zoonotic diseases like Covid-19, SARS, Ebola and avian influenza.

Biodiversity is the living fabric of the world

Biodiversity loss is not just an ethical problem: our wellness and our wealth rely on healthy ecosystems. Natural resources can only remain resources if they are preserved and replenished. Biodiversity also provides countless benefits for humans:

Pigs
They are our pantry
More than 75% of crops partly depend on animal pollination
Pigs
They are a key source of medicine
Significant medical and pharmacological discoveries are made through greater understanding of the earth's biodiversity
Pigs
Micro-organisms are essential to all life
The 100,000 billion bacteria in our gut (10 times more than human cells!) are key to the functioning of our body
Pigs
They are our best ally against climate change
Oceans and plankton purify one third of our CO2 emissions
We share
the same planet
Livestock

Of all the mammals on Earth, the biomass of the human population has grown to
represent 36% while livestock bred for consumption has risen to 60%. Wild animals
now only account for 4%.

Major threats to biodiversity are all driven by human activities :

Pigs
Natural habitat destruction
Pigs
Overexploitation of nature
Pigs
Climate change
Pigs
Pollution
Pigs
Invasive species
Unlike the dinosaurs, we
can still turn things around!
Nature is very resilient: conservation experiments have shown that, as long as a species is not extinct, it can usually recover if we stop harming its ecosystem. By transforming our farming practices and protecting the environment, it’s not too late to change course.
