Where we are right on the coast, so we’ve got the marshland out here in the wash [ Applause ]. You can even hear you can hear all the darks of geese or birds all along on a coastline here. This was actually the new sea wall, because all the farmland on the left here was all reclaimed off the marsh many years ago, and i’ve, seen the water level on this bank up here within you know a millimeter or two of coming over The top of the bank – and you suddenly realize you know those extreme events – are going to happen more and more in the future, and also how low-lying particularly this part of your sound your wall is, it could really very drastically change.
We & # 39, ll, lose the whole lot and it will sweep in and stay. You know when sea levels rise, it will stay, it will not go back out again, like everyone thinks it would be a flood and you & # 39. Ll lose the wildlife habitats.
Here, you’d, lose the farming. You’d, lose the communities it’s in everyone’s; interests that we protect these sorts of areas. We have to get on top of the climate change issue. If the planet’s. Glaciers continue to melt a quarter of the world’s.
Population would lose access to fresh water. A lot of people in cities around the world are used to just turning the tap on and having instant water. Forgetting you know. This is where it comes from, and this is how we have to manage it.
This is where you know if this goes wrong up here. There is a lot of water very right because our cities are expanding and the natural availability of water is not good enough to sustain that big population.
It takes the story: doesn’t it away from just being about the environment and climate change, but it takes it into people’s homes. Actually, this is about water. This is something yeah. There is water and yeah it’s about survival survival exactly because that is their lifeline, because these glaciers provide water in spring and summer period, where we have no rainfall.
I heard that you are a geographer by training yeah. You thought to warren. My geography teacher would be well impressed on the back of the glacier off all these years. We’d love to come and show our children environments like this.
You can impress george geography. Finally, my geography chat about terminal marines is useful. I’ve, been given ridicule about it for years, and now i can actually talk to professor about it. He’s like oh.
You know what a marine is, that’s, good news, [, Music ]. What is going on here is climate change, and 1.6 billion people depend on this fresh water. That is a huge amount of the world’s population now.
Imagine if this goes. It’s, it’s, a huge environmental and humanitarian disaster, and yet we still don’t seem to be picking up the pace and understanding it quick enough, and i think the young are really getting it, and the young Generation are really wanting more people to do stuff and want more action, and we’ve got to speed the pace up, we & # 39, ve got to get on top of it and we need to be more more vocal and more educational about What’s, going on very good? We made all different sections where the animals go.
So this is where we put like the slugs. It’s like at the top. We & # 39. Ve got grass that’s where the worms live. Oh, look at that worm. You know they don’t like being in your hand because the heat – why are bees so important? They bring life to our earth and they help other animals.
Like caterpillars, if there was no nature, no bees, no food. No us! I & # 39. Ve got a few questions for you. Have you okay, ask me questions it’s, princess charlotte cheeky, then prince george? No, they’re about as cheeky as each other.
They’re very cheeky. This is a lovely lady, this one. This is deborah light’s up for a lot. I’ve, never known a rhino, be called debra. Before now i’ve got george charlotte and now louis your outlook does change and that’s.
Why i had to do something, because i really felt that by the time my children were 20 at the rate the poaching was at. They may not be another rhino in the wild. They are a prehistoric, odd, looking creature, but when you get to see their characters and you get to see the family bond, they have with their mum, it does make you feel, like you’re, watching a really close family unit and the fact that They’re under so much threat is really quite sad.
People might think that’s, a big tank, big hulk of an animal with a big horn, but they are incredibly vulnerable. They don’t have brilliant eyesight, and people will take advantage of that and they want this horn, which is effectively nail.
You know, and that is all it is it’s. It’s fingernail. This is where the hall belongs on on a live rhino, that’s, where it should stay. Welcome to our liver, [, Music, ], it’s, just a mind-blowing number of tusks.
It really is it’s like a headliner in this. In this warehouse alone, we have around 43 000 pieces. It’s, a really weird feeling it’s kind of um. When you try and visualize how many elephants were attached to these tusks that’s when it gets really quite scary, i’ve, never seen anything quite like it.
