A carbon footprint is the total amount of greenhouse gases you generate in your daily actions. The Nature Conservancy state that “to have the best chance of avoiding a 2℃ rise in global temperatures, the average global carbon footprint per year needs to drop to under 2 tons by 2050”. Simple daily actions increase your carbon footprint, such as, using cars, cooling systems, consumption of meat, etc. Changing your habits will help save our glaciers.

EcoMarine Malta warns of high extinction risks for dolphins due to human impact. Dolphins’ diet includes fish, squid, and shrimp; they hunt in pods. Social similarities with humans include enjoyment of companionship but face shared challenges like boat evasions. A code of conduct advises safe dolphin interactions, emphasizing respectful distance and noise reduction. Plastic pollution poses a severe threat, with many dolphins ingesting or being ensnared by plastic debris. Advocating for maritime regulation and reducing noise pollution are proposed solutions. By minimizing disruptions to their habitat and reducing plastic pollution, humans can preserve dolphins’ well-being. Maintaining a respectful distance during interactions and advocating for habitat protection are crucial steps in safeguarding these marine mammals.

Bees, essential for pollinating three-quarters of crucial crops, face alarming threats. Declining nectar levels, as highlighted by the UN, signify a concerning trend. Their role extends beyond honey production; they’re pivotal for pollinating human-consumed crops, with 84% relying on bees and insects. Yet, over the past decade, bee populations have plummeted due to various challenges like diseases, pests, and environmental factors such as air pollution and electromagnetic fields. To safeguard bees, promoting bee-friendly practices is imperative. This entails cultivating bee-friendly farms, planting bee-attracting flora like citrus, lavender, and rosemary, and transitioning away from synthetic pesticides. Community efforts, like the Ħaż-Żebbug local council’s initiative to preserve wildflowers for bees, are crucial. Government support, particularly through EU funds for organic farming, can accelerate this transition. Together, we must prioritize the preservation of bees, ensuring a flourishing future for both them and humanity.
