It's estimated that about 30 percent of the Earth's surface is covered in forests, which provide numerous natural resources like food, fuel, and medicine. The Earth's ocean covers 70 percent of the planet, and provides resources like seafood, minerals, and oil. Humans have depleted or destroyed more than half of the Earth's wetlands, which are important for biodiversity, water filtration, and flood control.
