Jane Goodall

"This organisation, Population Matters, is so very important because this is one of the most important issues that we face today."

- Dame Jane Goodall, Population Matters Patron

Sir David Attenborough

"I support Population Matters because I think if we keep on growing, we’re not only going to damage nature, but we’re likely to see more and more inequality and human suffering."

Radhika & Ajeesh, London, UK

"Many people think the human population is a 'red herring' when it comes to climate change, but it's not, and scientific studies have proven it. Knowing the environmental impact, my husband and I solidified our decision to be childfree. We joined Population Matters because it is one of the organisations who directly address the issue and promote sustainable solutions for the future such as women's empowerment, global contraceptive access and poverty elimination."

Miranda, Argentina

 "I am a wildlife conservationist and have been concerned about world overpopulation for many decades. I am dismayed that governments are not taking action. My main concerns are that we are killing our wildlife by taking over their habitats and causing mass extinctions as well as making life even harder for those that remain. An example of this is the eroding of our forests in South America by cattle ranchers, amongst others. This is a direct result of our overpopulation. I wish for a world in which all women have access to contraception and education."
