Here is the only #10YearsChallenge we really should be interested in: the saddest pictures you’ve ever seen!
We all remember the recent # 10YearsChallenge: we’ve already managed to compare ourselves and our friends with what we were 10 years ago and see those drastic changes that occurred during this period. Some of us pleased them, some did not, but anyway, the changes had happened.
However, not only we alter in process of time, but also the environment does. And some of the changes that have occurred around us can be much more shocking than our own look on old photos…
Deforestation: from 2009 to 2019, the Amazon forest lost about 60,000 square kilometers
What happened to the plastic bottle submerged into the sea for 10 years? Nothing, because it takes hundreds of years to decompose
According to NASA, the polar ice sheet is disappearing at a rate of 12.8% every 10 years, which is equivalent to thousands of square kilometers!
It looks like the changes on this terrible photographic comparison proposed by Greenpeace took not a decade, but a whole century
An effect of illegal gold mining in Ghana, which is estimated to have polluted 75% of the country’s water basins
Our continual survival and that of our kids lies on us to do more in keeping our environment biodiversity wildlife and water bodies safe and secured.#10YearChallenge #SayNoToGalamsey #OurFutureMatters #ProtectNature #SavePlanetEarth pic.twitter.com/ONXiSQLhim

The disappearance of ice sheets has a devastating impact on polar bears, who have to learn how to hunt on land
There are several species to which we said goodbye in the last decade. Spix Macaw is one of them
The Spix Macaw (Blue Macaw) officially went extinct in the wild in 2018 mostly due to mass deforestation. When will we stop? #10YearChallenge #WakeUp #ClimateChange #EnoughIsEnough pic.twitter.com/K4cU8I3EEv

If we keep this rate of ecosystem disruption, many other species will disappear within the next decade, like this white rhino

Ocean warming has a devastating effect on marine life, particularly on the delicate ecosystem of coral reefs
Many pristine beaches have been turned into landfills due to the marine currents that carry our waste…
But let’s end up on a positive note: within 10 years many virtuous projects took place, in which volunteers and institutions have collaborated. This amazing forest was restore on the island of Sumatra
#10yearchallenge featuring the Halaban restoration site. As you can see, this site has changed dramatically in a decade, thanks to the dedication of the @orangutancentre #forest restoration team. #Orangutans and other wildlife now live in this forest again 💚 pic.twitter.com/zmzBcqGT4L
