During the melt, various activities to educate the public about simple ways to combat the danger of global warming were organized.
“A glacier can melt without us caring, since it is so far away from us. But when one cubic meter of ice disappears in just several days before our eyes in February, this should set us thinking,” says Cristian Lascu, editor-in-chief of the local National Geographic.
Due to global warming, sea levels are constantly rising. In combination with deforestation, this leads to increasing difficulty for wild species to survive in what once was their habitat. National Geographic Society is making great efforts internationally to protect biological, cultural and historic resources via a series of conservation programs.
The National Geographic magazine is the official magazine of National Geographic Society with 31 local editions and a readership of over 40 million. National Geographic is produced in Romania by Sanoma Hearst.
