This infographic outlines areas of wildlife preservation where we have been successful, battles we are losing, and battles we have already lost. For example the American Bison was hunted down to 750 in 1890, but thanks to preservation efforts this has increased to 350,000.
Unfortunately there are other battles we are losing, such as with the beautiful Amur Leopard. There are now only 30 left, and we face a difficult fight to save them. The important thing is that there is still time to make a difference and it’s not too late.
Animals such as Tasmanian Tiger have been extinct since 1936 and there is nothing we can do about it, so let’s hope the same doesn’t happen to the Amur Leopard.
Hi! How is your day going? Did you already take a walk? Did you take the time to go out and contemplate nature? I personally am kind of a morning person for the technical stuff, but my creativity turns on by the evening, but what has helped me a lot is taking walks or going swimming very early in the morning, that’s my way to get up on the right foot and start the day in a good mood. By just taking a 30 mins walk I can admire nature (the river, the trees, the hills around us plus how slowly the day gets brighter) and can also watch people walking their dogs or jogging, is kind a being part of the same world, as silly as it may sound. Hope you find the time to go outside and just observe what is beyond the window of the office or home.
A series of live music events—including tours by Dave Matthews Band, Phish and Barenaked Ladies—will pair Earth-conscious concertgoers with the premier reusable water bottle to encourage fans to take positive action for the planet.
To address the huge amount of disposable water bottle waste created at concerts, Nalgene Outdoor Products, maker of reusable water bottles and food storage containers, and REVERB, a non-profit organization that creates and executes ‘green’ programs at rock concerts to reduce environmental waste, have teamed up to provide reusable water bottles to music fans during the 2015 summer and fall live music season.
“Nalgene reusable bottles are a natural fit for a tour greening partner,” explains Adam Gardner, guitarist for Guster and co-director of REVERB. “They directly help us reduce the environmental footprint of concerts in a way that fans appreciate.”
Celebrate the biggest day for positive environmental action!
World Environment Day (WED) is the United Nations’ principal vehicle for encouraging worldwide awareness and action for the environment. Over the years it has grown to be a broad, global platform for public outreach that is widely celebrated by stakeholders in over 100 countries. It also serves as the ‘people’s day’ for doing something positive for the environment, galvanizing individual actions into a collective power that generates an exponential positive impact on the planet.
