Did you know that rivers provide 97% of all the water supply in Malaysia?

As rivers become more and more polluted, water that is safe for us to drink and use becomes scarce. It is sad to say that most of the sources of pollution have been caused by human activity such as illegal dumping, unsustainable agriculture and the list goes on

In conjunction with #WorldRiverDay this 27th September 2015, share with us what you do to play your part in saving our rivers.

Did you know that toilets flushing accounts to 26% of our household water usage?

Here’s a tip on how to cut down on water wastage from the toilet flushing.
1) Prepare 2 unused plastic bottles
2) Put an inch of sand or pebbles inside each of the two plastic bottles to weigh them down
3) Fill the bottles with water, screw the lids on and put them in your toilet tank
4) Make sure that it is safely placed away from the operating mechanisms

This can help you save ten or more litres of water per day!
See the big picture – saving water helps conserve our nation’s water resources and the environment!

This ‪#‎WorldRhinoDay‬ we'd like to introduce Malaysia's last Sumatran rhinoceroses. Smallest of the rhinoceros species, the Sumatran rhinoceros has two horns like its African counterpart. They are the last surviving species in the same group as the extinct woolly rhinoceros. They are also one of the world's rarest mammals and are critically endangered.

Over the last 30 years, 50% of the world's corals have disappeared and fish species that depend on them have declined by 34%. The chain of events doesn’t end there - we’re all connected to the ocean - habitats, species, livelihoods and economies are at risk.

There are solutions and together we can turn the tide and restore the health of the ocean. Learn more and help us raise awareness: http://ocean.panda.org/#report

The ocean is fundamental to life on Earth.

It regulates our global climate and weather, produces half the oxygen we breathe and has absorbed almost a third of the CO2 we’ve produced in the last 200 years. Only 3.4% of the ocean is in marine protected areas, and only part of that is effectively managed.

Well managed marine protected areas can protect critical habitats, fish and other marine life… they can also help reduce poverty, increase food security, create jobs and protect coastal communities.

There is an ocean of opportunities to sustain our seas: http://ocean.panda.org/#report

Around one in four species of sharks, rays and skates is now threatened with extinction mainly because of overfishing.

The time for governments, businesses and individuals to take action and reverse the decline in marine ecosystems is now. #BluePanda: http://ocean.panda.org/#report

Our ocean is under pressure → http://ocean.panda.org/#report

From fishing to oil and gas, shipping, coastal development, pollution and climate change, human activities are having a huge impact on the marine environment. The cumulative effect of these pressures is seriously diminishing nature’s ability to cope and bounce back. But there are solutions, if we act now.

Imagine a forest the size of Germany, France, Spain and Portugal – wiped out in just 20 years…

It is possible to meet human demands for food, energy and raw materials in the coming decades without sacrificing precious forests. Urgent action is needed to halt deforestation and forest degradation → http://panda.org/wfc2015

How can local communities help protect forests?

In the Ebyeng village in Gabon, locals are repopulating their ancestral forest with species such as the Moabi, which has become almost extinct due to haphazard harvesting. Ebyeng was the first village in Gabon to start “community forestry,” where locals manage their own forest. Today, it is one of only three permanent community forests in Gabon. Nearby, another group in Nze Vatican is sustainably harvesting their forest and running an artisanal logging project. Both these efforts have been made possible by a joint Nature Plus-WWF project.

From the air we breathe to the desk we use, we all depend on forests.

An estimated 130 million hectares of forest were lost between 2000 and 2010 due to deforestation. This week, world forestry leaders are meeting in South Africa to discuss key issues and find solutions → (http://panda.org/wfc2015).

Deforestation is not just an environmental issue. It’s a social and economic issue and we can all do our part to stop it. Think about your daily routine and tell us: What are you doing for forests?
