The francophone island of Martinique which looms over the village of St. Pierre (referred to by tourists as the “Paris of the West Indies”), experienced the worst volcanic disaster in the Americas. Mount Peele erupted in the spring of 1902, claiming the lives of more than 28,000 people. (Photo credit: Selden Vestrit/flickr). #volcanoeruption#volcanoes#naturaldisaster#climatechange#saveourplanet

Today, on World Water Day - millions of people around the globe still lack acces
Today, on World Water Day - millions of people around the globe still lack access to clean water and at least two billion use a contaminated source of drinking water. The struggle to access quality water remains, leaving marginalized communities locked in poverty and vulnerable to disease. Water scarcity by 2030 will render 700 million people worldwide displaced. Curb your water footprint, inspire action and keep in mind that water has the power to change and save lives.

During February, millions of monarch butterflies migrate into Southern Californi
During February, millions of monarch butterflies migrate into Southern California after passing winter in the Transvolcanic Mountains of Mexico. It has been stated that future generations of these butterflies will not be able to navigate back home due to changing climate. Monarch butterflies navigate through the use of a sun compass embedded in their mid-brains, however the mechanics of their use are still a mystery. Reverse migration has been documented, but monarchs do prefer to spend winters in microclimates that allow their metabolism to decrease, in order to avoid freezing. Temperate is the driving force of migration for monarchs and climate change will cause a disruption.

Wild Edens: South Asia, a documentary series just released and tackles the issue
Wild Edens: South Asia, a documentary series just released and tackles the issues of climate change, as it points to the vulnerable habitats of India and Bangladesh. It highlights awe-inspiring landscapes that hold endangered wildlife and also focuses on dense forests and remote deserts, including a backdrop of mountain ranges. Actress/activist Freida Pinto lends her voice to the film and has endorsed several sustainable development causes, including the UN Global Goals campaign. The film’s aim is to spotlight issues of global climate change and the importance of moving towards low-carbon energy.

Between 1990 and 2000, Americans wasted a total of 7.1 million tons of cans, enough to manufacture 316,000 Boeing 737 airplanes or enough to reproduce the world’s entire commercial air fleet 25 times.

Malawai is prone to droughts, flooding and severe thunderstorms due to its proximity to the East African Rift Valley. The country also experiences earthquakes, along with the other natural disasters and it has been noted that climate change intensifies the frequencies of these events.

In Vancouver, British Columbia, a wildlife sculpture standing in a high traffic
In Vancouver, British Columbia, a wildlife sculpture standing in a high traffic downtown area was donned with a huge plastic six pack cover with a tag crediting the environmental group Plastic Pollution Coalition, proving that the animal community suffers from plastic pollution caused by humans. There is no doubt that our oceans are littered with plastic from basic items such as beauty products, bags and bottles. This plastic pollution results in marine animals digesting plastic waste, which leads to dire health outcomes and in some cases death.

Versova Beach in Mumbai was littered with plastic and trash that measured 5.5 fe
Versova Beach in Mumbai was littered with plastic and trash that measured 5.5 feet high a few years ago. In what is known as “the world’s largest beach cleanup”, over 5.3 million kilograms (nearly 12M lbs.) of trash were removed over a course of 85 weeks and with the help of 1,000 volunteers. The initiative was started by one man - Afroz Shah, on a mission to transform what was once referred to as a dump, into a pristine coastline. This cleanup allowed the Olive Ridley turtles to make a comeback and start nesting on the beach once again. In just one week, at least 80 turtles made their way into the Arabian Sea after hatching from their nests. Shah continues to educate villagers and people living in slums along the coastline about sustainable waste practices, so that they understand the value of not littering.

French sculptor Paulo Grangeon spotlights the reality of animal endangerment acr
French sculptor Paulo Grangeon spotlights the reality of animal endangerment across the world through his “Pandas on Tour” exhibit. Creating 1,600 paper-mache bears that depict the number left on the planet, he has brought attention to the issue in more than 20 countries, including visibility at the Eiffel Tower. Due to logging, agriculture and infrastructure expansion in China, giant pandas are suffering the consequences of environmental deforestation as they need to digest 20 to 40 pounds of bamboo per day, which can take up to 16 hours of foraging. Climate change has also slowed down bamboo production which makes up 90% of the panda’s diet.

Millions of people are affected by the various natural disasters that China faces throughout the years. It’s vast landscape invites disasters such as typhoons, flooding, earthquakes and droughts. The world’s worst disasters have hit China such as the 1998 Yangtze River floods which left 15 million people homeless and resulted in thousands losing their lives.
