Magsaysay town fights for sea turtles' survival
MetadataShow full item record
A study by the Australian Academy of Science indicates the world is heating up, and the increasing concentrations of greenhouse gases, such as CO2, in the Earth’s atmosphere are causing the planet’s climate system to retain more energy, affecting plants and species. “The average temperature of the Earth’s surface increased by an estimated 0.7°C since the beginning of the 20th century and, according to the most recent projections of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, could rise by 1.6–4.3°C compared to an 1850–1900 baseline by 2100,” it said. This condition is taking a toll on Magsaysay town’s precious but endangered species – the hawksbill turtles.
