#Regram #RG @amazonfrontlines : Ensuring clean water for future generations of the Amazon is an ongoing dream we share with our indigenous partner Alianza Ceibo. . Working towards this dream, we've already installed 1164 rainwater harvesting systems in over 80 communities - achieving to provide a reliable and safe water supply for families affected by the impacts of nearly half a century of oil exploitation on their ancestral territories. This year, our efforts will be focused on providing maintenance workshops in the communities to ensure the sustainability of this solution and families' autonomy in caring for and repairing their systems over time.

#Regram #RG @cnnbusiness : Morocco is home to the world's largest concentrated solar farm. Built on an area the size of more than 3,500 soccer fields, the Noor-Ouarzazate complex produces enough electricity to power a city the size of Prague, or twice the size of Marrakesh, and saves the planet from more than 760,000 tonnes of carbon emissions. Morocco aims to have 42% of its power come from renewable sources by 2020.
#Regram #RG @oceana : Every year, fins from as many as 73 million sharks end up in the shark fin trade. Shark finning is a gruesome practice that involves chopping off a shark’s fins and dumping the body back into the ocean to slowly drown or bleed to death. Many are plucked from the ocean, maimed for their fins and tossed back to sea to die. While shark finning is illegal in the U.S., the demand for fins drives this horrible practice, and the U.S. participates in this demand by allowing the buying and selling of shark fins. DO YOUR PART! Tell your representative in Congress to ban the sale of shark fin products in the U.S. to help protect sharks by following the link in our bio. #FinBanNow 📸: OCEANA / LX
#Regram #RG @unenvironment : When we learn from nature 🐝 we can make a difference for the planet! @studio ant in India🇮🇳 has created a biomimicry cooling system inspired by the structure of a beehive. The innovation saves energy⚡️& helps protect the ozone layer. Together, we can #SolveDifferent Copy https://www.unenvironment.org/ into your browser to learn more. 📷 Monish Siripurapu/Ant Studio #ClimateAction #MondayMotivation #climatechange #innovation
#Regram #RG @cnn : A massive hole two-thirds the size of Manhattan has been discovered growing in an Antarctic glacier, signaling rapid ice decay that has shocked scientists. The cavity — measuring almost 1,000 feet tall — is big enough to have contained 14 billion tons of ice, and “most of that ice melted over the last three years,” NASA said.

The vessels working to protect the last remaining vaquitas are under constant threat of attack by poachers. We must continue to support organizations like @seashepherdsscs that are fighting to keep this incredible species alive. Click the link in bio to learn how you can support their conservation efforts.
#Regram #RG @unenvironment : Mountains 🗻 are spectacular landscapes which are often called nature's water towers. They cover 24% of the Earth’s landmass and support a wide variety of ecosystems. Human activities can tip the delicate balance of mountain ecosystems, so the challenge is to sustainably manage them. #mountains #ecosystems
