Today is #StopFoodWasteDay! Let’s face it: Food waste is no good for the planet. Why? Because when we waste food, we also waste all the land, energy and water it takes to grow, harvest, package, and transport it. It also creates greenhouse gas emissions. By cutting food waste, we can help protect wildlife and wild places. Click the link in our bio to learn how you could help reduce the environmental impacts of wasted food with a few simple steps.

The proposed creation of Pebble Mine will put the only freshwater lake-dwelling seals in the United States at risk. “The icebreaker that is proposed would be used throughout the year to shuttle concentrate back and forth. A spill has the potential to be a catastrophic situation for the seals because it would negatively impact the lake ecosystem, especially its fish communities, which are the principal prey source of seals.” – Sean Brennon, a postdoctoral research associate of the University of Washington. WWF has played a key role in educating the US government about how important Bristol Bay is to Alaska and the rest of the US, and you can help, too. Follow the link in our bio to learn more.

The leading cause of coral bleaching is climate change. A warming planet means a warming ocean, and even small changes to water temperature can cause coral to stress and drive out their symbiotic algae. Coral reefs support some of the most biodiverse ecosystems on the planet. They provide shelter, spawning grounds, and protection from predators, and they also feed organisms that form the base of food chains. As reef ecosystems collapse, already at-risk species face extinction. Follow the link in our bio to learn everything you need to know about coral bleaching and how we can stop it.

Snow leopards have a white-gray coat spotted with large black rosettes that helps them blend in perfectly with steep and often snow-covered rocky mountains. They play a key role in their ecosystem, as both a top predator and as an indicator species in their high-altitude habitat. If snow leopards thrive, so will countless other species. These images were captured during WWF-Russia’s snow leopard population assessment in 2017.

Over the past 30 years, the oldest and thickest ice in the Arctic has declined by 95%. And if emissions continue to rise unchecked, the Arctic could be ice-free in the summer by 2040. But what happens in the Arctic does not stay in the Arctic. From rising sea levels to unpredictable weather, we are already seeing the impacts of melting polar ice caps. Follow the link in our bio to learn how melting sea ice is already impacting you.
