The Amazon, central Africa, the Mekong. These are home to some of the world’s most species-rich, culturally significant and stunningly beautiful forests. But large swaths of these forests, and many others around the world, may not be there in 15 years if we don’t do more to save them.
Food waste is thoughtless. Most of us aren’t even aware of it. When we don’t use what we have, we not only waste food, but we negatively impact precious resources including biodiversity and animal habitats.
Our need to eat is not going to change—in fact, it is just going to get larger as our population grows. But what can change is the way we produce and distribute food. WWF works to improve the efficiency and productivity of producing food while reducing waste and shifting consumer patterns.
