Team Earth


Conservation International has released their new Team Earth Digital Magazine. This digital magazine offers an interactive way to see what projects Conservation International have been working on.

This issue highlights:

Bird’s Head Seascape in Papua New Guinea — a teeming coral reef where they found 50 new species of fish, coral and crustaceans, including two new species of “walking” sharks and where they are training a new cadre of conservation leaders.
Guyana’s forests — the source of 20 percent of the world’s fresh water, where they have leased 200,000 acres from the government for conservation, both addressing climate change and providing living resources to the people who live there.
A Climate for Life — an evocative photo essay that celebrates the wildlife, places and people that are affected by climate change.
An on-the-ground update from post-disaster China — where CI and numerous partners are working to protect both the people and the pandas who have been affected by last summer’s earthquake.

It is a pretty interesting way to explore conservation efforts around the world.
