Nowhere is far enough to escape climate change. Every corner of the Earth will be affected. - @elliegoulding  #ForNature  #WorldEnvironmentDay 

Climate change is pushing the snow leopard – known as the ‘ghost of the mountains’ – towards increased conflict with local communities & their livestock. The #VanishingTreasures  project is working to make a difference ⤵️ #WorldEnvironmentDay  #ForNature

? We're on perilous ground ? We are on track for a temperature rise of over 3°C. This would bring mass extinctions & large parts of the planet would be uninhabitable. We need to supercharge our #ClimateAction  ambition NOW to close the #EmissionsGap :

India’s bold move against disposable plastic will drastically stem the flow of plastics from 1.3 billion people & business in the fastest growing economy in the world. #BeatPlasticPollution  #WorldEnvironmentDay 

Even if the world were to cut emissions in line with the Paris Agreement, winter temperatures in the Arctic would rise 3-5°C by 2050 & 5-9°C by 2080 devastating the region & unleashing sea level rises worldwide. #UNEA4  #ClimateAction 

The #COVID19  pandemic is a wake-up call. On average, 1 new infectious disease emerges in humans every 4 months. 75% of these emerging infectious diseases come from animals. To prevent further outbreaks, the illegal wildlife trade & destruction of habitats must stop. #ForNature 

For our planet ? and for our health ? we need to #BeatPlasticPollution . Get involved for #WorldEnvironmentDay  ?
