Children

Tough on parents

Diminish marital satisfaction

Kids grow up

Require less care

Make parents proud

Unhappiness melts away.

Children=Long-term investment in happiness

Shark At Risk For Extinction

Fewer than expected.

Smaller population

Than killer whales, polar bears.

Out in Pacific Ocean,

White sharks congregate.

219 in region.

Sharks suffering deep declines.

Sharks threatened,

Plummeted by 90%.

Great white sharks

Classified vulnerable

Elusive.

Critically in danger of collapse.

Crucial For Survival

Central Peruvian rainforest,

Rich in biodiversity,

Conservation, sustainable development, environmental groups,

Are crucial for survival.

Oil and mining projects,

Impacts of climate change,

Changes in the climate,

Increasingly extreme.
