Global Footprint Network
Humanity is now consuming the world’s natural resources at a rate that is 50 percent faster than the Earth can renew them.
The Global Footprint Network’s mission is to end ecological overshoot by making ecological limits central to decision-making. By institutionalising resource accounting in national governments, Global Footprint Network influences major investments and policy shifts so that they support global sustainability.
Increasing economic globalisation and a world population of 7 billion are pushing resource consumption and fossil fuel emissions to unprecedented levels.

Keepers of the Wild Appeal
The World Land Trust (WLT) is an international conservation organisation that takes direct action to save rainforest and other wildlife habitats.
The Atlantic Rainforest is one of the most important eco-regions in the world and a biodiversity hotspot, but sadly it is considered the second most threatened biome on the planet.
Only 7% of the original forest remains, and what is left is becoming increasingly fragmented.
We want to help the World Land Trust to preserve this area.

Shark species are threatened with extinction due to poaching, and a cruel industry thrives on the “pleasure” of eating shark fin soup.
Shark finning refers to the removal and retention of shark fins and then the discard at sea of the carcass. The shark is still alive when it is tossed back into the water, unable to swim, the shark slowly sinks towards the bottom where it drowns or is eaten alive by other fish.
Shark finning has increased over the last years. The biggest market is China. We want to help Sharkwater to spread their film in China, and you can help us do this. Save the sharks, save the world.
