“We have the knowledge necessary to stop species from going extinct,” says Taralynn Reynolds of the Center for Biological Diversity, a conservation group that created the pictured Endangered Species Condoms. “Universal access to family planning, reproductive healthcare, and women and girl’s education saves human lives and wildlife. Talking about population can feel awkward, but it’s a critically important conversation."

The Tat Kuang Si Waterfall, near Luang Prabang, Laos. The country of Laos has a population of around 7 million, projected to grow to 11 million by 2060. Fortunately, the use of modern contraception by married women is increasing towards 50%, which should help stop population growth at 11 million and hopefully avoid further human pressure on majestic natural wonders such as these falls.

Helping young people, both boys and girls, understand their maturing bodies and how to protect their own reproductive health empowers them to make appropriate decisions about sexual behavior. Helping young people understand their fertility dispels myths and misconceptions about reproductive health. The resulting knowledge, social awareness and skills facilitate the passage through puberty and prepare youth to care for their health.

When we start by exploring people’s strengths, we value people as human beings.

"I used to think that top environmental problems were biodiversity loss, ecosystem collapse and climate change. I thought that thirty years of good science could address these problems. I was wrong. The top environmental problems are selfishness, greed and apathy, and to deal with these we need a cultural and spiritual transformation." —Gus Speth, US Advisor on climate change Africa Travel, Amazing Nature, Outdoor, River, Scenic, Places To See, Turismo, Places To Go, Paisajes
