The koala population of New South Wales dropped below 20,000 because of excessive tree-clearing, the World Wildlife Fund said in March. Koalas in the area are on track to be extinct as soon as early 2050, it said.

Tropical forests are incredibly effective at storing carbon β€” providing at least 30% of action needed to prevent the worst climate change scenarios. Yet nature-based solutions only receive only 2% of all climate funding.

All the smoke from the wildfires happening around the world are compounding the problem. When will we ever learn?

Conserving ecosystems is ​often more cost-effective than human-made interventions. In the Maldives, building a sea wall for coastal protection cost about US$ 2.2 billion. Even after 10 years of maintenance costs, it is still four times cheaper to preserve the natural reef.

According to satellite data, tropical forests are being destroyed at a rate of about 8 million hectares (31,000 square miles) a year β€” an area equivalent in size to the state of South Carolina or the Czech Republic.

I was aware of the seriousness but I actually didn't FEEL much before the Amazon fires. Nothing reported about the fires in Southern Africa, though visible on the satellite photos. I start to ask myself- for how much longer now? Before failing harvests will truly affect us??

Natural climate solutions like ending deforestation and restoring degraded forests could, at the global level, create 80 million jobs, bring 1 billion people out of poverty and add US$ 2.3 trillion in productive growth.
