Cancun mangroves under threat

Venue for UN climate talks is itself evidence of the threats that climate change pose.


    Climate talks in the Mexican city of Cancun are in their second week, but nations are yet to agree on a new deal on emission cuts.

    Cancun itself is evidence of the threats facing our planet.

    A growing tourism industry in the city is killing off mangroves, natural fighters of climate change.
