Many of us love nature for its own sake, but there are practical reasons for protecting nature, too. Nature feeds us, quenches our thirst, supports our health, creates clean air and provides the energy that powers our economy and the inspiration that feeds our souls. It’s not selfish to conserve nature for people; it’s simply a recognition that nature is part of us and we are part of it.

The videos above explore the many ways that nature matters to people across the globe. From a Georgia farmer who relies on a local water source to irrigate his crops to a teacher who watched mangroves protect her small schoolhouse in the Caribbean, each story is a powerful reminder of the importance of nature to people.
