Coral Reefs: good for marine life, good for us



Coral reefs are home to a quarter of the world's marine life. But reefs aren't just good for fish. 450 million people need them for food, jobs and protection of the sea. But climate change, pollution and over-fishing are trashing reefs everywhere. A quarter of the world's coral reefs are damaged beyond repair. WWF is working to save these extraordinary underwater worlds.

Healthy diet for a healthy planet



What we eat has a huge impact on the world around us. For instance nearly one fifth of all greenhouse gas emissions come from agriculture. As the world becomes richer we consume more calories and protein and this means more land required to raise livestock and more seafood that is being pulled from the oceans. The food we eat is part of a complex web of life to which we all belong.

Palm oil: how our consumer choices affect wildlife



Your shampoo, your ice cream, your margarine, your lipstick - all contain palm oil. Demand is still growing, as are oil palm plantations... but at what price to tropical forests and the biodiversity found there?

Living in harmony with nature



Human well-being is directly connected to the way we treat our planet's natural resources. Deforestation, pollution, extinction, loss of biodiversity directly impact quality of living. Destroying nature makes life harder for all of us and even more for those who are already vulnerable.

The importance of Mangroves - and our impacts upon them



Mangroves are one of nature's most amazing factories. Providing food, shelter, jobs and protection. Yet we are replacing them with fish farms, reclaimed land or killing them with pollutants. We have lost more than half of them already. But they can bounce back. And we can help them. If we all understand the limits of living on a single, finite planet.
