Endangered Planet Portfolio

The natural world faces many threats, many of them man-made - such as the global pollution of the planet with plastics - or caused by conflicts between expanding human settlements and the natural habit and environments for non-human life. This category is about the endangered world we inhabit, the threats it faces and its non-human inhabitants, the measures being taken to conserve, restore or protect, whether it’s environment, migration routes, wildlife, sea life, plant life, trees, insects, mammals, birds, fish, or any other living organism.
