To mark the UN's International Day for Biological Diversity we visit a sloth sanctuary in Costa Rica, talk about the new status awarded to dolphins in India, hear about new efforts to reforest Spain and learn about Stork ringing on the Rhine River in Germany.
As humans' impact on the planet becomes more evident, there is a need for independent reporting. Living Planet looks at new technologies, visits innovative projects and keeps you up-to-date on the state of the earth.
Listen to Living Planet every Thursday as audio-on-demand or subscribe to the podcast.
