The Planetrise Association for Culture and Environmental Protection was founded in 2003 by some enthusiastic young people in Kisvárda (Hungary).
"Promotion of sustainable development, protection of diverse cultures, promotion of healthy lifestyle for every social class in order to create a liveable and more unified world." (extract from the articles of incorporation)
We aim to promote the conservation of values, of our natural and built environment and to form our society in a sustainable way via our concrete projects, programs, awareness raising and education. To achieve our goals we work together with national and international local governments, civil organizations, educational, health and social institutions, national parks, authorities for the protection of the natural and built environment, business companies, churches and the media.
At the turn of the 19th century, about 1,000,000 rhinos lived on the planet. By 1970, there were only 70,000 of these magnificent creatures left. Currently, only 28,000 rhinos live in the wild, while three of the five rhino species are critically endangered. The southern white rhinoceros is classified by the World Conservation Union as a “nearly threatened” category, and the larger unicorn rhinoceros is considered “vulnerable." Both should be considered at risk of extinction.

Since 1974, World Environment Day has been celebrated every year on 5 June. This year, the theme is biodiversity – a concern that is both urgent and existential. Recent events, from bushfires in Brazil, the United States, and Australia to locust infestations across East Africa – and now, a global disease pandemic – demonstrate the interdependence of humans and the webs of life, in which they exist. / www.un.org/en/observances/environment-day/

The Endangered Species Day is held in every year on the third Friday of May. In this year it was on the 15th of May. Established in 1964, the International Union for Conservation of Nature’s Red List of Threatened Species has evolved to become the world’s most comprehensive information source on the global extinction risk status of animal, fungus and plant species. This List shows that today more than 31,000 species are threatened with extinction.
