It's time to stop blaming overpopulation for our environmental woes and start looking at the factors that really matter—resource consumption and toxic exposure as population growth and fertility rates show downward trends. U.S. and global populations are both growing at slower rates.
Human health risks, stronger cyclones, coral reef death, and coastal flooding are among the major challenges detailed in a new report on climate change in American Sāmoa.
The brief identifies success stories in reducing coral reefs' vulnerability to local stressors and climate change, with examples from Belize, Bali, American Samoa, and Hawai’i, US. A new fund was launched in September 2020 to invest USD 500 million over ten years to conserve coral reefs.
Icebergs crumbling into the sea may be what first come to mind when imagining the most dramatic effects of global warming.
The dire state of the marine environment off Coromandel Peninsula will be the focus of a hui in Whitianga this afternoon. Conservationists, iwi leaders and fishers are meeting to discuss issues such as fishing, pollution and climate change, which are putting heavy pressure on marine ecosystems o
Local management of coral reefs to ease environmental stressors, such as overfishing or pollution, could increase reefs' chances of recovery after devastating coral bleaching events caused by climate change, a new study finds.
Global warming is not just increasing average temperatures on land, it’s heating up the oceans as well. As marine heat waves become more common, they are disrupting longstanding relationships between species that have come to depend on each other.
A total investment in nature of $8.1 trillion is required between now and 2050—while annual investment should reach $536 billion annually by 2050—in order to successfully tackle the interlinked climate, biodiversity, and land degradation crises, according to the State of Finance for Nature report
