The Save the Planet collection was created as a form of awareness to reflect on the conditions in which our planet and the animal species, most at risk, that inhabit it live.
We should all be more aware of it and prove more sensitive in every little gesture of ours.
For now, it is composed of 6 endangered animals: Panda, Koala, Sloth, Toucan, Chameleon and Monkey. Pendants can be worn both as pendants for earrings and for necklace, using the special carabiner.
The toucan is the best known tropical bird. With its large colored beak and its elegant plumage, this bird is the symbol of Amazionia.
The toucan is able to adapt to the changes that occur in its habitat but the deforestation of Amazionia threatens its existence.
If we protect the toucan, symbol of this beautiful forest, we show that there is still hope for him and for the many other species that inhabit the Amazon.
The first major threat to the toucan’s survival is the deforestation of the Amazon.
During the past 50 years the forest has lost 17% of its surface. Every year there are 1 million and 600 thousand hectares of forest destroyed. The destruction of the habitat is seriously affecting the toucan’s survival.

They have not disappeared, not yet. But according to the Australian Koala Foundation (Akf) the fate of the lazy Australian marsupials is now sealed: the koalas are functionally extinct.
In fact, according to the organization’s estimates, only 80,000 would have remained on the continent – an insufficient number for them to play a significant role in the environment and to guarantee the survival of new generations.
In any case, the koalas had been declared vulnerable as early as 2012 and their situation has not improved since then, quite the contrary. The main cause is the rapid and continuous disappearance of their habitat (eucalyptus forests), reported in 2018 by a report by the WWF and the Nature Conservation Council.
On the side, extreme climatic events such as drought and heat waves.

The panda has been known to the Chinese tradition since the most remote ages and thanks to its innate charisma it has always been at the center of particular attention by the Chinese people.
The discovery of this animal by the western world dates back to 1869, when the French Jesuit naturalist, Father Armando David, described it for the first time.
At one time the panda lived throughout southern and eastern China, as well as in neighboring Myanmar and northern Vietnam, but the expansion and development of the human population have confined it in the dense bamboo and coniferous forests of the mountain ranges of the Southwest China, Sichuan Province, Shan-si Gansu.

There are 25 primate species on the verge of extinction according to the latest report published by IUCN, the United Nations Convention on Biological Diversity.
The study, which is attended by the world’s greatest monkey experiments, is presented every two years and is an important tool to request urgent conservation measures for those endangered species mainly due to the destruction of tropical forests, illegal trade wildlife and poaching to get meat to eat.
In the dismal ranking of individual countries, Madagascar ranks high on the list with six of the 25 most threatened species.
Following are five species in Vietnam, three in Indonesia, two in Brazil, and one in China, Colombia, Ivory Coast, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Ecuador, Equatorial Guinea, Ghana, Kenya, Peru, Sri Lanka, Tanzania and Venezuela .

According to the update of the Iucn Red List, which examines a new study, over a third of the chameleon species are at risk of extinction.
They are endowed with a very long and lightning tongue, with a prehensile tail like that of monkeys, with large protruding eyes, able to rotate in any direction and, more miraculous feature, they are able to change color. Among the most bizarre creatures that evolution has forged are chameleons.
According to a recent update of the Red List of the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN), the situation is worrying for these colorful descendants of dinosaurs. In fact, a study conducted by the Chameleon Specialist Group claims that over a third of chameleon species are endangered. During the study, the researchers examined the health status of populations of almost all existing species in the world, 184 of the 200 known.

It is difficult to think of a more defenseless creature than the pygmy pradipo. Smaller than a cat and completely unable to escape human predators, it is one of the most endangered mammals. Write to the government of Panama to guarantee its protection.
Isla Escudo de Veraguas, an island far from the Panamanian Caribbean coast, is the home of the pygmy pradipo, in serious danger of extinction. This precious species is at risk, not only for the degradation of the habitat, but also for the incursions of the local fishermen: the animal is their favorite dish, when stationed on the island. For this reason: from 500 specimens in 2001, there were only 70 in 2012. Soon it will reach total extinction.
