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..

Have you started planning your holiday travel? Help protect the planet by reducing your carbon footprint while on the move. Here are a couple tips you can take on: 
1. Increase your fuel economy by putting air in your tires, changing your air filter and spark plugs;
2. Whenever possible, book direct flights (as much as 1/2 of carbon emissions come from the plane’s takeoff and landing);
3. Instead of buying brand new clothes for your vacation adventures, buy consignment clothes.
4. One last easy step: offset the footprint of your trip using our Carbon Calculator tool..

#TreeTuesday: #DYK elephants plant trees and fight climate change. Studies have shown that elephants help protect forest health in central Africa by distributing the seeds of trees. Because they roam over such great distances, elephants play a key role in spreading tree seedlings far and wide. Scientists have documented lower tree diversity in forests that have lost #elephants, meaning a less healthy and resilience forest. Keeping forests healthy ensures they will continue to store carbon in their trunks, roots and soils, which in turn helps reduce the effects of #ClimateChange..

#MondayMotivation: 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..

Concerns escalated over the weekend as the wave of oil patches began to encroach on Brazil's Abrolhos region. The first small blobs of petroleum landed on the rocky shores of the national park which is home to some of Brazil’s most iconic marine species and vital nature. But as @CI_Brasil works to protect the waters, coastlines and marine life, YOU CAN HELP MAKE A DIFFERENCE. Join our effort to help local communities buy equipment they need to effectively protect their critical biodiversity. LINK IN BIO..
