Bee the change

Earth Day 2019

The world is seeing unprecedented destruction of natural resources and the rapid reduction of plant and wildlife populations as a result of human activity. The world recognizes we need to protect mother earth and its colonies of species living here – our only hope is collective action – a movement that must be informed by trusted research. 

Springer Nature joins the Earth Day Network’s 2019 Earth Day, Protect our Species, campaign offering libraries, researchers, students, and professionals insights to some of the top research across species, conservation, sustainability and more. We share this in efforts to help researchers find solutions to help slow the destruction of planet earth.  For more information about adding these research resources to your library, contact us

Bees

New Content Item​​​​​​​

Bees are extraordinary creatures living all over the world, yet bee populations are in massive decline. Bees hold the incredible importance of pollinating plants in most ecosystems in the world. Without bees, plants would not be pollinated, fruits and plants would not be produced, flora would decline, world economies will be impacted, and other species would suffer. The biggest threat to bees is wide use of pesticides in farming worldwide, climate change, habitat destruction/loss, diseases and more.

Coral Reefs

​​​​​​New Content Item

Coral reefs cover nearly 110, 000 square miles of the earth’s surface (284,300 square kilometers). Reefs house more than 25% of the marine life on earth and thousands of species including sting rays, sharks, fish and other plant species make reefs their home. Yet, warming ocean temperatures, chemical and pesticide residue, unsustainable tourism and uncontrolled fishing, are some of the biggest contributors to the destruction of nearly 25% of the earth’s coral reefs and we need to protect our reefs.

Elephants

​​​​​​New Content Item

Elephants are the largest land mammals on earth. They play an integral part of maintaining the biodiversity of the ecosystems they where they live by flattening foliage to create habitats for smaller animals, they dig holes for other animals to use and they spreading seeds across the lands they roam. Elephants are iconic through history, culture and their impact on the societies and cultures in which they co-habitat with humans. Poaching, habitat loss and climate change are the biggest threats to elephants.
