Tourists in Denali Park in Alaska are obliged to carry feces with them. The melting of the glacier has already exposed 66 tons of excrement of previous visitors.

The Denali National Park contains the Kahiltna Glacier, which, due to rising global temperatures

gradually melting. As a result of this process, about 66 metric tons of waste have already seemed on the surface of the glacier, most of which is waste of visitors to the park.

Thawing of waste leads to the appearance of bacteria and microorganisms that gradually enter the Bering Sea off the coast of Alaska.

Since the beginning of 2019, six out of nine companieswho organize recreation in the national park, give tourists reusable toilets for five to seven uses. The filled container weighs about 7 kg - all visitors of the park and even climbers who climb Denali mountain have to carry it with them.

Previously, scientists from the Federal Institute of Forest, Snow and Landscape (WSL) of Switzerland recorded that the Alps began to thaw the permafrost. The thawed permafrost layer reached 4.8 m deep.
