In 2007, world leaders setup the TEEB Study to find out the economic impact of biodiversity loss. Led by Pavan Sukhdev, 500+ scientists, business leaders, policy makers and citizens the conclusions were astounding: do nothing, and we lose trillions.

Nature should be valued for its intrinsic worth, over and above any economic factors. However, right now, we’re losing nature because we don’t reflect its value in decision-making. We need to factor the value of nature into buying decisions and add a line for Natural Capital into annual reports and GDP.

TEEB Visualisation Challenge


In the last 50 years, 60% of ecosystem services have been degraded due to human impact.

We asked you to help visualise the results of our scientific study into the need to value nature.

The renowned astrophysicist Stephen Hawking is known to have said that “The greatest enemy of knowledge is not ignorance, it is the illusion of knowledge.” There is no place for illusions as far as wetland valuation is concerned. A lot more work remains to been done to support evidence-based decision-making.
