India cricketer Rohit Sharma has highlighted the importance of climate conservation through the highly popular 10 Year Challenge that has taken the social media by storm.

For the uninitiated, the social media users are posting their images which are a decade part to show their personal transformation alongside the hashtag #10YearChallenge.

Instead of his own picture, Rohit posted a split-image of a coral reef with one-half representing it in all its glory, bustling with life while the other half depicts it desolate and lifeless.

This is not the first time that Rohit has promoted the cause of climate change. In December 2015, he launched a fictional environment superhero team called ‘Hyper Tyger’, a cricket-based digital comic with a twist.

Hyper Tygers is an action-packed adventure around a futuristic game of cricket unlike anything we have today. The story also serves as a larger allegory to protect our planet and its endangered wildlife, which is one of the great global challenges of our time, Rohit had said.
