Haenyeo, also known as "sea women", Jin So-hee, 28, and Kim Myung-soon, float in the water as they work in the sea off Geoje, South Korea, March 31, 2021. The disappearance of the seaweed, which the haenyeo harvest as food and which also provides habitat for other creatures they hunt, has forced the women to routinely dive to increasing depths, at least 12 metres, Jin said. "There is less for us to collect and we have to dive deeper, which is physically challenging," Jin said. Besides climate change, the women say they also have to deal with more pollution in the seas, complicating their already dangerous jobs. "I'm finding more golf balls than sea cucumbers now," Jin said. REUTERS/Kim Hong-Ji SEARCH "HAENYEO HONG-JI" FOR THIS STORY. SEARCH "WIDER IMAGE" FOR ALL STORIES

Kirk Taray, a bat ecologist, holds a cloth bag containing captured bats as he walks with a team of scientists back to the foot of Mount Makiling in Los Banos, Laguna province, Philippines, March 5, 2021. "As we continue to gain close contact with wildlife, we are deliberately exposing ourselves to diseases and danger. If we cannot stop this, we might as well develop measures of control to reduce the impacts of possible future outbreaks, at the very least. That is why this research is important. By having the baseline data on the nature and occurrence of the potentially zoonotic virus in bats, we can somehow predict possible outbreaks and establish suitable, sound, and science-based health protocols," said Taray.
