#ThursdayThoughts: “Water is the driving force of all nature.” - Leonardo da Vinci _ Fresh water is vital to supporting the diversity of life on earth, a source of food, health and energy. Without it, civilization would not be possible. But if we don’t take steps to keep our planet healthy, we risk the complete depletion of these freshwater resources. By focusing on the locations around the world that people rely on most for their fresh drinking water, agriculture and other uses, our projects use sound science to provide innovative solutions that serve as models for conservation worldwide.
Oceans cover up to 70% of the Earth’s surface and include 97% of the world’s water. But beset by habitat destruction, overfishing and #pollution, the ocean is losing the ability to provide the benefits that humans have come to rely on: food, livelihoods, #climate regulation. At @ConservationOrg our long-term goal is to safeguard the world’s essential #ocean and coastal biodiversity in order to maximize the long-term benefits for people and #nature.
What on earth is #reforestation and how can it help combat #ClimateChange? That’s easy: It’s helping to bring forest back to an area where it was destroyed. Reforestation involves wildlife, breathable air — even the cocoa powder in your favorite breakfast spread. Fundamentally, though, it’s a matter of creating the conditions for Earth to continue supporting human life.

The recent @IPCC climate report called out reducing food waste as one way YOU can help protect the planet. Roughly one-third of the food produced in the world for human consumption every year gets lost or wasted, contributing billions of tons of greenhouse gases. The good news is that reducing food waste is easy — it just takes a little extra planning. Try to plan your meals before you go shopping; inventory your fridge and pantry; and make (and stick to) a list. You can also freeze or repurpose leftovers and preserve extra produce through canning, freezing, pickling or drying.
