The #ClimateCrisis is particularly challenging for people who live by the ocean and whose livelihoods rely on the resources it provides. Rising sea levels, temperatures, and extreme weather conditions are destroying their way of life. Just some of the consequences include: * Broken houses and damaged boats * Changes in local marine species, less fish * Less income and food Check out the results of the new WWF climate study and what needs to be done now for small-scale fishermen in developing countries ➡️ bit.ly/fishforwardcc #FishForwardEU #ClimateEmergency

The food we eat has huge impacts on our planet, from deforestation for farming to water pollution and soil degradation from overuse of chemicals, and overfishing of our oceans. But there is a solution. ✔️ Transitioning to Planet-Based Diets that are high in human health benefits and low in environmental impacts can: 🐘 Reverse nature loss 🌳Halt deforestation 🏭Reduce emissions 🌎Capture carbon 💧Reduce water use and pollution 🍲And provide everyone with healthy and nutritious food. Adopting a Planet-Based Diet is one of the easiest ways people can help reverse nature loss and fight climate change 🌏 Find out how your current diet is impacting the planet now, and how you can adopt a Planet-Based Diet: planetbaseddiets.panda.org/impacts-action-calculator

WWF Continues to Fight Against Plastic Pollution, Advocates for an Extended Producer Responsibility Scheme in the Philippines
The amount of #PlasticPollution may seem overwhelming, but there's still time to #ChangeTheEnding for the planet. With the recently released Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) scheme assessment report under our #NoPlasticsInNature initiative, we advocate to stop the flow of plastics into nature—starting from the upstream (production/pre-consumption), all the way to the downstream (post-consumption). The EPR scheme obliges companies to reduce unnecessary plastics through eco-design and adoption of reduction projects (like refilling), while calling for an improvement to our country’s waste reduction and management system. Read on to learn more about the plastic situation of the country, and how we can still work our way towards a future with no plastics in nature. http://bit.ly/eprlaunch
