Polar bears are disappearing as glaciers melt. The polar bear has become an endangered species, so I want to protect these lovely little guys. I will try my best to protect them. I like small animals. This volunteer activity is very meaningful. I can have my own polar bear, which makes me very happy.
New pictures show that polar bears are beginning to cannibalism each other as global warming destroys it hunting grounds. Without the sea ice habitat, the polar bear will not survive in the long term.
As the weather continues to deteriorate, the polar bears' living environment is gradually deteriorating. If they are not protected, I believe their numbers will become smaller and smaller in the near future, which is precisely why we need to pay attention to them. I hope my little effort can help them.
Perhaps one of the most dangerous phenomena gripping the nation today is the pollution problem, which is pervasive in all the fields of the whole nation. There proves a growing worldwide awareness of the necessity for strengthening environmental protection.
I think it's such a valuable experience that I can learn the country's culture and the palces of interest which I traveled.So I love travel. And I wanna to know more country and pay more attention to international issues
The novel coronavirus bursting with happiness, but it can not stop the solar term, can not stop the blossom of Wuhan cherry blossoms, and can not stop the volunteers' selfless dedication. A red hat, a red riding jacket, countless volunteers, they are the volunteers of love, they are the dedication of love. Let's pass on our love and let it float in the sky of the world with the cherry blossom rain in Wuhan. Fight the epidemic together, love the world!
