Veterinarian William Guerra Neto (R) and an assistant take measurements of two Amazonian manatees who are being rehabilitated after sustaining injuries from hunting and fishing nets at the Center of Amazonian Manatees at Amana Lake in Maraa, Amazonas state, Brazil, September 21, 2015. The Amazonian manatee is relatively easy to hunt, and is threatened as a result. It is also at risk from pollution, accidental drowning in commercial fishing nets, and the degradation of vegetation by soil erosion resulting from deforestation, according to the Center of Amazonian Manatees.

A man from the local authorities takes pictures with his cellphone of a landslide resulting from soil erosion, after heavy rain due to Tropical Storm Bertha, in Aceituna town August 2, 2014. The storm, which passed through southern Puerto Rico, caused a landslide, soil erosion, seven inches (18 cm) of precipitation and could cause the collapse of a water reserve in the south-central region of Villalba, according to local authorities.

A crater is seen in Sanica, near Sanski Most 
A crater is seen in Sanica, near Sanski Most January 17, 2014. The area was once a cottage with a small lake, a fish pond and some trees. In recent months, however, it has become a crater wider than 50 meters and deeper than 30 meters. The crater is growing and is threatening more households, with some residents saying they have been forced to leave their homes because walls have began to crack. This the second of such a phenomenon in the area and experts say the craters could be caused from a sudden sinking of soil due to the existence of air pockets in the soil. Local media said authorities will carry out an extensive research on the area next month. REUTERS/Dado Ruvic (BOSNIA AND HERZEGOVINA - Tags: ENVIRONMENT SOCIETY TPX IMAGES OF THE DAY)

A wildcat gold miner (R) is approached by agents of Brazil's environmental police IBAMA, as he works near the city of Morais Almeida, Para state, June 25, 2013. The Amazon rainforest is being eaten away at by deforestation, much of which takes place as areas are burnt by large fires to clear land for agriculture. Initial data from Brazil's space agency suggests that destruction of the vast rainforest - the largest in the world - spiked by more than a third over the past year, wiping out an area more than twice the size of the city of Los Angeles. If the figures are borne out by follow-up data, they would confirm fears of scientists and environmental activists who warn that farming, mining and Amazon infrastructure projects, coupled with changes to Brazil's long-standing environmental policies, are reversing progress made against deforestation. Environmental issues will be under the spotlight as a United Nations Climate Change Conference opens in Warsaw, Poland on November 11. Picture taken on June 25, 2013.

Sand blocked a street near Atafona beach in Atafona 
A boat is seen near Atafona beach in Atafona, about 225 miles (360 kilometers) north of Rio de Janeiro, November 11, 2010. Local fishermen bet on divine fury, scientists raise theories, but the fact is that the town of Atafona is disappearing. Located in a delta in the state of Rio de Janeiro, in Brazil, this small town of sand is being swallowed by the ocean as rising temperatures speed up the process of erosion. According to researchers, a total of 183 buildings have been destroyed and the Marine lighthouse moved twice in the past 30 years. Researchers from the Federal Fluminense University (UFF) created the Atafona Project in 2003 to study the causes of accelerated coastal erosion in the region.
