WWF will be at La Marina Shopping Centre from 25 to 30 July to disseminate its current actions related to forest fires and the state of the Mediterranean Sea.

WWF has returned to La Marina Shopping Centre from 25 to 30 July, this time to raise awareness of its actions related to forest fires and the conservation of the Mediterranean Sea and to attract new members to contribute to the welfare of the environment.

Forest fires in our forests are a global problem and are no longer limited to the summer. Decades of analysis and reports make it clear: there are fewer fires, but they are more destructive, almost impossible to extinguish.  Devastating fires that occur around the world, in unthinkable places, destroying unique ecosystems of incalculable ecological value for the health of the entire planet, such as the Amazon, the lungs of the Earth or the environmental disaster that shook Australia at the end of 2019.

We should remember that Spain is experiencing a wave of fires throughout its territory, such as Zamora, Galicia, Tenerife, Andalusia and Guadalajara.

WWF explains that there is a direct relationship between fires, deforestation and pandemics: The destruction of forests allows humans to come into contact with wildlife populations carrying pathogens. In this sense, the United Nations and WWF agree on the One Health concept because well-preserved forests are the best vaccine against zoonoses such as the coronavirus.

On the other hand, the Mediterranean is one of the most important areas for marine biodiversity on our planet. It is home to 1 in 10 marine species, 28% of which are unique. Unfortunately, the Mediterranean is the most polluted sea in the world and is considered the sixth most polluted area for marine litter, concentrating 7% of the planet's microplastics. This is a severe problem for the entire ecosystem and for emblematic species such as turtles and cetaceans that can ingest large pieces of plastic. The Mediterranean is calling out to us and asking for urgent help.

In addition, they will also focus on actions such as protecting the wolf and informing about plastic seas and ghost nets.

Do you want to do your bit? This week (25/07 to 30/07), visitors to La Marina Shopping Centre will have the opportunity to visit the WWF (World Wide Fund For Nature) stand on the first floor. They will be happy to inform you so that you can find out more about the projects and activities carried out by this excellent world organisation.

We are Nature; protect it to protect yourself and your loved ones.
