It's the International day of Forests today
and a quote by Mahatma Gandhi springs to mind: “What we are doing to the forests of the world is but a mirror reflection of what we are doing to ourselves and to one another.”

It’s March and it's Dolphin
Awareness Month! Dolphins are extremely intelligent and social animals that live in pods, can swim at a speed of up to 25 miles per hour and maybe able to dive up to
1,000 feet - as well as jump as high as 20 feet out of the water. These images document why we need to protect these magnificent creatures!
Today we launch our
campaign to protect the fragile ocean on top of the world. These images illustrate the rich biodiversity of the region and give
you an idea of what is at stake if industrial fishing fleets move even further North
to exploit these waters, where ethereal, otherworldly, translucent sea angels hover and the unicorns of the sea, narwahls live.
Today NGOs and
community groups around the world raise awareness and promote the conservation
of wetlands and celebrate World Wetlands Day. This year’s theme is “Wetlands
for our future; sustainable livelihoods”.
The importance of wetlands
in providing a habitat, hosting a vast variety of life, as well the threat they can be under is illustrated in our
archive pictures below.

2015 has been an eventful year as ever and these
pictures can only attempt to illustrate a fraction of our campaign highlights. It's been a year of people power, whether we were campaigning outside Shell or taking to the streets during the climate
conference in Paris.

As world leaders meet at the COP21 climate talks in Paris, World Soil Day is celebrated around the world on 4th December. World Soil Day aims to connect people with soils and raise awareness on their critical importance in our lives.
Soil is essential for life. It’s the basis for food, fuel and fibre production, as well as providing services vital for human well-being, like helping to remove pollutants from water. We should be protecting soils, instead the world’s soil is being degraded by the impacts of climate change and polluted by dirty fuels like coal.

Every year on the 21 November fishing
communities around the world celebrate World Fisheries Day and remind us that
we need to ensure a healthy oceans ecosystem with plenty more fish swimming in the sea. More than
two-thirds of the world’s fisheries have been overfished and unsustainable fishing methods like bottom trawling or the use of FAD's (Fish Aggregation Devices) threaten to deplete fish stocks.
