Climate Change Up Close – Franz Josef & Fox Glaciers
We visited the world famous Franz-Josef and Fox Glaciers on the west coast of New Zealand’s South Island and while still beautiful, they’re just a shell of what they used to be thanks to rising global temperatures.
Check out the sign in the 4th photo for evidence of how far they’ve receded in just a few years.
