Amazing news from @WWFColombia! 🎉 The Heritage Colombia programme will provide protection to Colombia’s ecosystems, inc. 12% of the Amazon rainforest. Projects like this are vital to support#Biodiversityy & nature-based solutions to the#ClimateCrisiss. fal.cn/3pItIY
A recent report by @wwfBrazil has shown that deforestation in the Cerrado and Amazon has reduced the habitat of many species, such as the endangered maned wolf pictured below. 📸 Find out how SMART (spatial monitoring and report tool) training is helping tackle this issue �1h
Rainforests are vital for the survival of life on Earth, yet the food we eat is fueling the destruction of the Amazon and others like it. We all have a responsibility to protect the Amazon. Find out what you can do #ForYourWorldfal.cn/3pEF5R #WorldRainforestDayy
We wish we had better news on #WorldRainforestDay, but the latest figures from the Amazon only confirm it's been a devastating year for the world's biggest rainforest. This is part of a terrifying trend, where destruction only increases year-on-year. fal.cn/3pEEN
#DidYouKnow rainforests cover only 6% of the Earth’s land surface, yet are home to over half of all the world’s documented species? It’s likely that there are still many more plant & animal species in the world’s rainforests which have yet to be discovered! #WorldRainforestDay
With the date for #COP15 set, governments have a once-in-a-decade opportunity to deliver a Paris-style agreement for nature. They must not waste a moment between now and December, and work toward deal that halts and reverses the loss of nature by 2030. fal.cn/3pD15

WWF signed this letter in @thetimes alongside @UKSustain, @NFFNUK, @Food_Foundation, experts & charities across the food sector. A broken food system needs a comprehensive, cross-government plan led from the top, not a watered down package that ducks the most difficult questions.
