How to say goodbye to a glacier
In the last 50 years, the Andes have lost half of their glaciers. Venezuela could become the first country to be left without any at all.
Climate change is causing glaciers to melt rapidly, and this is especially serious in the Andes region, which has lost half of its glaciers in the last 50 years.

Then, scientists Luis Daniel Llambí and Alejandra Melfo explain how the Humboldt is a mirror where the other Andean countries should view themselves.
