Ever heard the term "ecosystem services"?🤔 These are the benefits people derive from natural ecosystems, and which we often take for granted. Marine ecosystems provide us with harvestable fish 🐟 and other seafood, the ocean stores carbon and helps regulate the climate while coral reefs provide coastal protection🌊 and tourism benefits🏖, just to name a few examples. If we add up all the ecosystem goods services provided by the ocean, it adds up to $2.5 trillion per year💰! But if we degrade and destroy marine ecosystems, we will lose out on these abundant and valuable services, and this is already happening all over the planet🌎😲😓. So it's not just about being nice, it's also about the numbers and the $$$ (in case you needed another reason to care😛) Infographic from @world_wildlife

YES. The workshop was for high school students but these are notes from a 7th grader who was sitting in. I get so frustrated when Educators underestimate the capacity of young minds. #designthinking#diversity#peopleprofitplanet

💡💡💡💡💡 With the markets closed during the weekend I tend to relax and read a lot. Anything from online articles to 500+ page books, as long as it will teach me something that will help me become a better leader and trader.
When I was younger I'd regularly spend 5 straight hours reading long fiction books, so it looks like the good habits carried over😊
Post your favorite book in the comments!!!
