Today vs tomorrow
Approximately 10 million tons of plastic waste flood the world's oceans every year. If this situation continues, in 2050 there will be more waste in the water than fish. Trees disappear due to forest fires or deforestation. The forest soil needs 30 years to completely regenerate after clearing; after a fire, it can take up to 80 years. Many animal species are brought to the brink of extinction by poaching because tusks, horns, skins, bones, meat and other body parts are sought after on the black market. Nearly 25,000 animal and plant species are considered threatened worldwide.
