Organisations

The world over, lots of organisations are established to help protect nature and animals. We have listed information and weblinks to the main environmental protection organisations. We've divided these by geographic area. So you'll find the World Wildlife Fund under international, etc.

See more Earth related websites on our Resources page. 

Nature

In the category Nature you'll find information about natural landscapes, the seas, oceans and atmosphere. It shows today's  threats to our natural habitat, and the importance to deal with those threats and protect our environment now.

Animals

The Animals category is divided into three subcategories. There are pages about Land Animals, Marine Life and Birds. Within these subcategories you'll find information about individual species, such as the panda, tiger or turtle.

Energy

Renewable and Non-renewable energy are the subcategories of Energy. Here you'll find definitions and examples of the world's different sources of energy.

Pollution

Pollution is a threat to man, nature and animals alike. There are many sources of pollution, and most of these endanger lifeforms by bringing hazardous chemical substances in direct contact with nature.

Newest 'green' burial method? Turn your loved ones into trees - Have you ever considered what might be a more eco-friendly alternative to coffins? How about organic burial pods where, instead of headstones, trees are planted on top. Two Italian designers–Anna Citelli and Raoul Bretzel– came up with up a project called Capsula Mundi, an innovative design concept with an environmental twist that addresses the exorbitant use of natural resources associated with traditional burials. Described as “the first Italian project created to promote the realization of green cemeteries in our country,” Capsula Mundi is an egg-shaped pod created to house a deceased human body in the fetal position, which eventually becomes nutrients that nourish the tree above.
Air pollution linked to slower cognitive development in children - Attendance at schools exposed to high levels of traffic-related air pollution is linked to slower cognitive development among 7-10-year-old children in Barcelona, according to a study published by Jordi Sunyer and colleagues from the Centre for Research in Environmental Epidemiology (CREAL), Spain, published in this week's PLOS Medicine.
