Save The Arctic by Randall

The Arctic has, sadly, been the recent target for oil companies to drill, industrial fish and destroy its natural habitat. The Arctic's ice is important for this planet as it serves as a cooling system--bouncing the sun's heat; and cooling the rest of Earth.

Inside Wildlife Crime by James Morgan for WWF

On the trail of wildlife crime from Gabon to Thailand, following the burning of ivory in Gabon to the seizure of ivory and smuggled tiger kittens in Thailand.

Wildlife crime not only threatens nature's most iconic species, but exacerbates poverty and corruption, funding an entire spectrum of related international crime. These images trace the story from beginning to end, across continents, offering a sense of the fragility of the human lives that lie in its wake. Photo and video by James Morgan

TRASHED Trailer: Environmental documentary with Jeremy Irons

No Place For Waste with the participation of Jeremy Irons, looks at the risks to the food chain and the environment through pollution of our air, land and sea by waste. The film reveals surprising truths about very immediate and potent dangers to our health. It is a global conversation from Iceland to Indonesia between the film star Jeremy Irons and scientists, politicians and ordinary individuals whose health and livelihoods have been fundamentally affected by waste pollution. Visually and emotionally the film is both horrific and beautiful: an interplay of human interest and political wake-up call. But it ends on a message of hope: showing how the risks to our survival can easily be averted through sustainable approaches that provide far more employment than the current 'waste industry'.

Acroporid Demographics: Threatened Coral Conservation

Once the dominant shallow water coral in the Caribbean, Acroporid corals (genus /Acropora/) have seen a dramatic decline in the past 30 years. Using cutting edge technology like DNA genotyping, GIS spatial analysis and underwater surveys, the Smithsonian's Caribbean Coral Reef Ecosystems Program (www.ccre.si.edu) is looking at the underlying drivers of mortality and regeneration in these threatened corals in Belize.

Toxic Is So Last Season: Detox Your Fashion Now

They say you can tell next season's hottest trend by looking at the colour of the rivers in Mexico and China. That's because global fashion brands like Calvin Klein, GAP and Victoria's Secret are using hazardous chemicals and dyes to make our clothes. These chemicals poison our rivers, and traces of these hazardous chemicals also end up remaining in many of the garments people buy.

But it doesn't have to be this way. Around the world, hundreds of thousands of people are calling on brands to make fashion that doesn't cost the Earth. Just this week, the world's largest retailer ZARA committed to clean-up their supply chain after over 320,000 people joined the campaign calling on the brand to Detox. True People Power in action.
