The Living Planet Report, published every two years, is the world's leading science-based analysis on the health of our only planet and the impact of human activity.
Its key finding? Humanity's demands exceed our planet's capacity to sustain us. That is, we ask for more than what we have.

In a world first, LPR 2012 was launched from space by astronaut André Kuipers in the International Space Station, in collaboration with the European Space Agency. See André's message to the planet below.

The 2012 edition of the LPR highlights the tremendous pressure that humanity is putting on our planet. We are using 50 per cent more resources than the Earth can provide. By 2030, even two planets will not be enough.

Our natural capital is declining and our Ecological Footprint is increasing. Urgent action is needed to ensure that we can live in harmony with nature.

European Space Agency
The European Space Agency (ESA) is Europe’s gateway to space. Its mission is to shape the development of Europe’s space capability and ensure that investment in space continues to deliver benefits to the citizens of Europe and the world. The Agency’s various programmes are designed to find out more about Earth, its immediate space environment, our solar system and the universe. ESA is a new partner for the Living Planet Report 2012, with ESA astronaut André Kuipers writing the foreword for the LPR, and launching the ground-breaking report during his PromISSe mission in the International Space Station in May 2012.

Conservation from space

In addition to the Living Planet Report, WWF is collaborating with ESA on a number of fronts, including mapping for a Heart of Borneo “Green Economy” project and a planned project supporting FSC management in Peru. WWF utilizes remote sensing using satellite technology for a wide range of applications in its work, especially in the field around the world. The range of activities and applications being undertaken include mapping and monitoring forests, fire monitoring, using satellites for monitoring of illegal activities, and support for sustainable forest management.
