We are continually disrupting the flow of fresh water. It no longer reaches the places that it used to and to the people and wildlife that need it. Many rivers no longer reach the sea. Mega dams block entire rivers and by taking too much water upstream we don't leave enough for those downstream. Being smart about how we farm and rethinking how we dam rivers will allow the flow to return.
Dependable fresh water is the most precious resource on our planet. Without it, nothing can survive. Yet only 2% of the water on our planet is fresh water.

The habitats that make up our planet are connected and reliant upon each other. The astonishing diversity of life on earth depends on these global connections.
Our poles are some of the earth's last remaining wildernesses. And yet just as we are beginning to understand these extraordinary places, they are changing fast.
In jungles, everywhere is special. Host to a staggering array of species, they are the oldest and most diverse ecosystems on our planet.
We are uniquely reliant on trees – without them, life as we know it would not exist. We’ve exploited our forests through the ages, but if we give them the chance, they will bounce back.
Our planet’s grasslands are the rich home to our big land animals, but they’re also shrinking. Life in our grasslands depends on space.
Without fresh water, life on land wouldn't exist. It is the most precious resource on our planet, but it's finite. Every drop is vital for all species and us humans that rely upon it.
Our coastal seas are a rich community of plants and animals working together, all of which are vital to the health of our planet and humanity.
