This iconic photograph marks the end of the career of *Matador Álvaro Munero.* In the midst of the battle, he suddenly repented and sat down at the edge of the field. Subsequently, in an interview, Alvaro said: “Suddenly I saw not horns, but the eyes of a bull. He stood in front of me and started looking at me. Just stood and watched, making no attempt to attack. The innocence that is in the eyes of all animals looks towards me with a plea for help. It was like a cry for justice and somewhere deep inside me, I suddenly realized that he was addressing me in the same way we address God in prayer: “I don't want to fight you, please leave me, Because I have done nothing wrong to you. You can kill me if you want, kill me if you want, but I do not want to fight with you." And I, reading it in his eyes, felt like the worst creature on earth and hindered the war. After that I became a vegetarian and stopped fighting bullfights. " This story was published in 2012.

In the context of life on land, there are several important statistics to consider:

  • Currently, over 30% of the Earth's land surface is covered by forests.
  • Forests are home to more than 80% of the terrestrial species, making them crucial for biodiversity.
  • Deforestation remains a significant issue, with an estimated 18.7 million acres of forest lost each year.
  • Around 1.6 billion people depend on forests for their livelihoods, including indigenous communities.
  • Land degradation affects approximately 24% of the planet's land area, leading to reduced productivity and biodiversity loss.
  • Conservation efforts have resulted in the protection of around 15% of the Earth's land area as national parks or other protected areas.

These statistics highlight the importance of preserving and restoring land ecosystems to ensure the sustainability of life on land.
