Demand for New Zealand logs has been strong over recent years as local sawmills compete with the export market to source logs for local construction, at a time when demand in China has stepped up after Asia’s largest economy clamped down on the harvesting of its own forests and reduced tariffs on imported logs to meet demand...

2018-08-02 19:30 | The costs of ecological “overspending” include deforestation, collapsing fisheries, water scarcity, soil erosion, biodiversity loss and CO2 buildup in the atmosphere. The carbon footprint is the most rapidly growing component of the global ecological footprint, of which it comprises approximately 60%. The Global Footprint Network has identified four areas with the most potential to address ecological overshoot and move back Earth Overshoot Day, namely cities, energy, food and population.

2018-08-02 17:56 | Mangroves are tropical forests that thrive in salt water and found in a variety of coastal settings worldwide. Mangroves store greater amounts of carbon than any other terrestrial ecosystem, which helps reduce carbon dioxide and greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. When carbon is stored in the ocean or coastal ecosystems, it is called blue carbon. However, a more precise estimate of how much blue carbon is stored by mangroves has not been available until recently.
