#Regram #RG @yaleenvironment360: Scientists are reporting that more than 2.3 million animals have been killed by wildfires in Bolivia in recent months, including jaguars, pumas, and ocelots. The fires have burned more than 10 million acres of forest and grassland since August, devastating ecosystems including the Chiquitania tropical savanna and an old-growth forest reserve in the state of Santa Cruz. More than 36,000 fires have burned in Bolivia so far this year, driven largely by farmers clearing land for agricultural purposes. To learn more, visit their website.

In 2017, this beautiful animal—the Tapanuli Orangutan—became the first great ape species identified since the Bonobo in 1929. Now, a mere two years later, the orangutan has joined a list of the world’s most imperiled primates, just published in a report, “Primates in Peril: The World’s 25 Most Endangered Primates: 2018-2020.” With 43 percent of the world’s primates classified as Critically Endangered or Endangered by the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species, the report is not just a warning, but a clear call for action, meant to spur conservation action and unlock support for the orangutan and 24 other species that made the list. @global_wildlife_conservation @bristolzoo

Over the last month, more than 5.3 million hectares of Bolivian lands have gone up in flames, including some of the country’s most important places for biodiversity. These fires directly threaten the ability of Bolivia’s protected areas and other wild lands to provide clean drinking water, store carbon, harbor wildlife and preserve the culture and livelihoods of indigenous people. Around the world we need to implement economic policies that recognize and safeguard the value of biodiversity and that do not incentivize destructive agricultural practices, the driving force behind the fires across South America this year.

#Regram #RG @greenmatters: Norway has taken a big step to help Gabon, a small nation in Central Africa, fight back against deforestation: Over the next 10 years, the country will spend $150 million to make sure the rainforest — which makes up much of Gabon — doesn’t need to succumb to economical pressures to either sell timber or clear the forest for development. Instead, Norway will spend $10 for every ton of carbon captured by the rainforest; though it’s likely less profitable than deforestation would be for the country, it helps protect the land that Gabon values. Norway has introduced similar programs of “performance-based forest payments” in countries like Indonesia and Brazil, but Gabon is unique in that the program can help save forests that are still standing — rather than just slowing down the process of deforestation. #livegreen #learngreen #norway #gabon #protecttherainforests #greenmatters

It has been a banner year for the Mountain Gorilla, and the latest birth at @virunganationalpark in the eastern Congo is just one of the victories we’re celebrating on #WorldGorillaDay! Virunga National Park is home to one-third of the world’s Mountain Gorillas. The Virunga population grew by an impressive 44% between 2010 and 2016 and now stands at nearly 300 individuals. Ten babies have been born in 2019 alone. In November of 2018, the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species reclassified the species for the first time in nearly 25 years—this time from Critically Endangered to Endangered. This is a testament to the colossal efforts of those dedicated to protecting the species, particularly those of Virunga’s rangers and an intensive monitoring campaign to protect these magnificent animals at all costs: Virunga rangers carried out 31,000 patrols over 5.5 years. They covered on foot the equivalent of walking the circumference of the Earth every year, or more than half the distance between the Earth and the moon. Rangers in gorilla monitoring patrols climbed 2,387 kilometers vertically over 5.5 years. This is the equivalent of climbing Mt. Everest 270 times.

Thanks to timely action, Instituto Araguaia has successfully contained fires that threatened Cantão State Park and an adjacent reserve created to protect the home of myriad species including the endangered Kaempfer's Woodpecker in central Brazil. It took a team of 29 people six days to extinguish the fires, with support from the Amazon Forest Fund and the @AmericanBirdConservancy. Instituto Araguaia work to protect a critical and unique ecotone where the Amazon, the Pantanal and the Cerrado ecosystems come together. The area is an important refuge for iconic species such as the Pink River Dolphin and Giant Otter. As elsewhere in the region, large portions of the forest have been cleared for cattle pasture and and cattle feed crops, increasing the risk of wildfires. With the fires in this vital area contained, we are committed to supporting our partners to protect and restore the ecosystems that sustain such a flourishing diversity of life. @EarthAlliance @Global_Wildlife_Conservation #InstitutoAraguaia #SaveTheAmazon #Amazonfire

#Regram #RG @nytimes Komodo dragons resemble dinosaurs that missed their cue for extinction, but environmentalists worry an invasion of tourists to their island lair could bring them to a similar fate. The 10-foot lizards are native only to a scattering of islands in Indonesia, and while Komodo tourism generates significant cash for one of the country’s poorest regions, it has also brought piles of trash, human encroachment and occasional lizard smuggling. Like other tourist destinations around the world, from Venice to the Galápagos, Komodo National Park is at risk of being wrecked by its own popularity. Some environmentalists worry that the stampede of visitors has set the ecosystem off kilter, and local leaders aim to close the island of Komodo, where the largest population of dragons lives, for at least a year. Even residents would have to leave. “If we don’t give the dragons their habitat, they will be extinct within the next 50 to 100 years,” the island’s deputy governor said. @adamjdean took these photos.

#Regram #RG @chamiltonjames The real heroes of fires are of course the firefighters. In the Amazon they often work with nothing but machetes and leaf blowers and small tanks of fire suppressant. I worked with a troop of them in eastern Brazil back in 2017. It was tough hot and at times hopeless work. Some of them were Guajajara tribesmen who had dedicated their lives to protecting what was left of their ancestral forests - most had already been logged and burned. Some of them had been murdered for trying. It was brutal and tragic and we should all bow down to them for what they do - for so little money that they have to roll cigarettes with writing paper.

#Regram #RG @washingtonpost A beloved baby marine mammal in Thailand has died after consuming plastic and experiencing shock, Thai officials said Saturday. The young dugong, a relative of the manatee, was named Marium after marine biologists discovered her orphaned and lost in April in southern Thailand, the Associated Press reported. Soon, she captured hearts around the world as videos of her nuzzling up against caretakers circulated the Internet. Veterinarians found pieces of plastic blocking the young mammal’s intestines and said that Marium died of shock. Her intestines became inflamed, which caused gas in her digestive tract, an infection in her blood and pus in her lungs. The infection spread, causing shock, officials said in the announcement.

#Regram #RG @rainforesttrust Fires are a major issue for our rainforests and our planet. These fires are intensified by many factors, including the climate crisis and deforestation. Loss of habitat through illegal logging and development exacerbates the intensity and duration of these fires, helping to create situations like the one in the Brazilian Amazon today. . Wondering what you can do to help? . 1. Keep informed about the situation. Sites like Global Forest Watch Fires (http://fires.globalforestwatch.org/home/) provide valuable information about the fires going on right now. . 2. Share your passion for the rainforest with your friends. Educate others about this issue and why it is so important. . 3. Try changing your daily habits to be more environmentally friendly. Purchasing environmentally-friendly products and reducing or reusing paper is a great way to start!. . 4. If you can, make your voice for the environment heard in your local and national elections. . 5. Support organizations like Rainforest Trust. While we can't help stop these particular fires, our work to prevent deforestation helps stop fires like this from happening again. . . . . #amazonfires #amazon #rainforest #wildlife #nature #deforestation #saveacres

#Regram #RG @rainforestalliance: The lungs of the Earth are in flames. 🔥 The Brazilian Amazon—home to 1 million Indigenous people and 3 million species—has been burning for more than two weeks straight. There have been 74,000 fires in the Brazilian Amazon since the beginning of this year—a staggering 84% increase over the same period last year (National Institute for Space Research, Brazil). Scientists and conservationists attribute the accelerating deforestation to President Jair Bolsonaro, who issued an open invitation to loggers and farmers to clear the land after taking office in January. The largest rainforest in the world is a critical piece of the global climate solution. Without the Amazon, we cannot keep the Earth’s warming in check. The Amazon needs more than our prayers. So what can YOU do? ✔ As an emergency response, donate to frontline Amazon groups working to defend the forest. ✔ Consider becoming a regular supporter of the Rainforest Alliance’s community forestry initiatives across the world’s most vulnerable tropical forests, including the Amazon; this approach is by far the most effective defense against deforestation and natural forest fires, but it requires deep, long-term collaboration between the communities and the public and private sectors. ✔ Stay on top of this story and keep sharing posts, tagging news agencies and influencers. ✔ Be a conscious consumer, taking care to support companies committed to responsible supply chains. Eliminate or reduce consumption of beef; cattle ranching is one of the primary drivers of Amazon deforestation. ✔ When election time comes, VOTE for leaders who understand the urgency of our climate crisis and are willing to take bold action—including strong governance and forward-thinking policy. #RainforestAlliance #SaveTheAmazon #PrayForAmazonia #AmazonRainforest #ActOnClimate #ForestsResist #ClimateCrisis 📸: @mohsinkazmitakespictures / Windy.com

#Regram #RG @cnnclimate: By 2050, London will feel more like Barcelona, Seattle will feel like San Francisco, and New York will feel like Virginia Beach, according to a new climate change study conducted by the Crowther Lab at ETH Zurich university. Drawing these city-to-city comparisons can "help people visualize the impact of climate change in their own city, within their lifetime," said Jean-Francois Bastin, lead author of the study. Most European cities are expected to become 3.5 degrees Celsius (6.3 Fahrenheit) warmer in the summer and 4.7 degrees Celsius (8.5 Fahrenheit) warmer in the winter. These might not sound like significant shifts, but warming temperatures could encourage the spread of infectious disease, endanger food security, and lead to water shortages, said Alex Lo, a senior lecturer in climate change at the Victoria University of Wellington in New Zealand.

Several factors contribute to melting in the Himalayas, including settled soot and changing precipitation factors. However, the new study suggests that temperature is the single biggest factor that drives the rate of melting, underscoring the impact of climate change on an area that is a critical source of water supply for India and China. 🔸 The research comes as global carbon dioxide emissions hit a record high last year, and as the earth’s average temperature has warmed about 1C compared with pre-industrial times. 🔸 Read more at the link in our bio. 📸: PRAKASH MATHEMA/AFP/Getty Images

#Regram #RG @time: The long journey to the Fijian village of Vunidogoloa leads to a #ghosttown forced into retreat by #climatechange and the rising seas that come with it. Once home to more than 100 people, Vunidogoloa has been overrun by the tropical forest. Plants cover the town square. The stench of rotting rodents wafts from abandoned homes, and salt water seeps up through the soil as far as 300 ft. from Natewa Bay. A few times a year, king tides inundate the village with knee-high waters; locals were forced to place precious possessions on tall surfaces and run for the hills. And so, five years ago, Vunidogoloa was abandoned. The Fijian government built a new town about a mile up the hill at a cost of half a million dollars. Prime Minister Frank Bainimarama tells TIME he plans to move 40 Fijian villages in the coming years to cope with rising sea levels. “Every day," he says, "I think about climate change."

#Regram #RG @natgeo: Photo by Paul Nicklen @PaulNicklen | An Antarctic fur seal relaxes atop a cliff overlooking the Subantarctic landscape of South Georgia. Having reached shore after a winter spent at sea, this seal arrived with the intention to breed among the thousands of seals that inhabit the island’s beaches. Although the species was once in severe danger from overhunting, their population has rebounded significantly in recent years, with their numbers now likely in the millions. #FollowMe at @PaulNicklen for more photos of wildlife from around the world. #furseal #SouthGeorgia #conservation #ocean

#Regram #RG @everydayclimatechange: Monarch butterflies migrate annually from Mexico and California to the northern US and Canada. Multiple facets of climate change are contributing to the variation in migratory patterns and population size. Global warming adversely affects monarchs’ reproductive cycles and development at all stages of life, and delays the butterflies’ natural instincts to make moves. Coupled with increased storms, rain, and high winds, the migration is greatly disrupted. This great journey is further impeded by the declining availability of the monarch’s main food source and breeding place: milkweed. Increasing temperatures and periods of drought are making it harder for this plant to grow. Illegal logging and land-use changes are limiting the space where it can flourish. Farmers' use of herbicide-resistant varieties of crops allows for more liberal spraying of herbicides and pesticides. This helps control weeds in their fields but also depletes the natural habitat for butterflies. Monarchs pollinate plants, like milkweed, and allow them to flourish. Without these pollinators the natural food web and human food systems are damaged. This unique migratory process is not only a spectacular sight, but has far-reaching effects on larger ecosystems. #everydayclimatechange #monarchbutterfly #mexico #biosphere #Michoacan #mariposa #ReservadelaBiosferadelaMariposaMonarca #SantuarioElRosario

#Regram #RG @natgeo: Photo by Ami Vitale @amivitale | On Monday, @UnitedNations released the Global Assessment Report on Biodiversity and Ecosystems. It states clearly that our human activity is taking down one million plants and animals, causing the sixth extinction event on this planet. It’s happening at an incredibly fast and accelerating rate. A million beautiful, ancient creatures like Sudan might breathe their last breath in our lifetime (here, in his final moments, Sudan was comforted by dedicated @olpejeta keeper Zacharia Mutai). Witnessing the last of anything die is something I never want to do again. Witnessing it a million times over may be more than my heart can stand and may be more than our fragile ecosystem can bear. Nature needs us now. Support and engage @conservationorg @nature_org @nature_africa and other orgs working to build a future in which we can live in harmony with nature. In order to protect prevent more heartbreaking deaths like this, we need to conserve 30% of the planet by 2030. @safariparkdvurkralove #rhinos #DontLetThemDisappear #stoppoaching #kenya

#Regram #RG @theeconomist: Bleaching is bad for coral. It happens when heat-stressed polyps, the sessile animals that construct coral reefs, eject the photosynthetic algae which usually reside within them. These algae are symbionts, providing nutrients to their hosts in return for shelter, so losing them is harmful to polyps and often results in their death. The higher temperatures brought about by global warming have therefore led to worries that more frequent episodes of bleaching might result in the loss of entire reefs.

#Regram #RG @aljazeeraenglish: Fisherman Samwu Ndaye is a volunteer who every morning combs the beach of Ngor, a 400-year-old village on Africa's western most tip in the Senegalese capital #Dakar, to clean up the plastic waste that builds up there. Single-use plastic products of every kind litter the villages along Senegal's coastline along with other waste that gets washed up on the beach. ‘If we don't clean it, no one will,’ said Ndaye, who is one of a growing number of volunteers who dedicate their time to cleaning up what has rapidly become a modern scourge. The waters around Dakar are heavily polluted with plastic and ‘more arrives each day,’ according to the fisherman. The rapid growth of the West African country's population, especially in larger cities like Dakar, has led to a hike in the production of household waste.

#Regram #RG @unenvironment: 🚨Populations of Asian pangolins are estimated to have declined by up to 80% in the last 10 years. As they become harder to find, traders are increasingly moving to Africa to meet the growing demand. More than 50,000 killed pangolins have been discovered in 2 seizures one week apart🚨. Pangolins, the world’s only scaly mammal, are solitary and nocturnal. They roll up into a ball when threatened - making them very easy for poachers to catch. In 10 years, over 1 million pangolins have been illegally taken from the wild due to demand in China 🇨🇳 and Viet Nam 🇻🇳. It is the most illegally trafficked mammal on the planet. Their meat is considered a delicacy, while their scales are used in traditional Chinese medicine as they are believed to treat a range of ailments from asthma to arthritis and difficulty with lactation. Double tap and share this with a friend 👥 to raise awareness and stop the demand for pangolin parts! 📷© Lisa Hywood #wildforlife

#Regram #RG @franslanting: Photos by @FransLanting The best way to document endangered animals like the Asiatic cheetah, which occurs only in Iran, is to use camera traps. It took the combined expertise of Iranian scientists and local wildlife rangers along with the permission of Iran’s Department of Environment and the support of an @NatGeo assignment to enable me to make this rare image of a male cheetah crossing a mountain pass. The second photo shows the teamwork that is required in the field. I am thankful to my friends in Iran for their help and devastated that two of the people shown in this photo have been in jail for more than a year now, accused of using camera traps for espionage: One of them may face the death penalty. But camera traps are not spy tools. Houman Jowkar and Amirhossein Khaleghi Hamidi worked with the government, not against it, and local rangers worked with them in the field. They were not operating on their own. They are patriots dedicated to saving one of Iran’s most powerful natural symbols from extinction. Yet they are on trial now along with six of their colleagues shown together in the third photo.

#Regram #RG @everydayclimatechange: Photo by Marcio Pimenta @marpimenta for @everydayclimatechange Misol Morales (7 years old) plays the guitar while waiting for his father to water the wild donkeys. With climate change, a region known as "Norte Chico" of Chile (about 400 km north of the capital, Santiago), has been becoming deserts for more than a decade. And he is advancing towards Santiago. These areas were once rich in olive farming, but water was diverted to mining and large agricultural enterprises. Chile is a unique case in the world. The water distribution system is privatized and the state has no regulatory agency. This model created during the dictatorship of General Pinochet prioritized water for large companies. In 2010, the UN recognized access to safe drinking water and sanitation as a human right. In Chile it is still totally privatized. There is yet another great dilemma for communities. The government wants to do away with the wild donkeys so common in the region. They feed on the vegetation that still grows in the desert and thus do not allow the biome to recover. But they are also one of the few sources of income for local society. Los Choros, Comquimbo, Chile. The photo was taken in January 2018. This photograph is part of my long-term project, "Stress Nexus - Chapter Americas," - in progress. Stress Nexus is an artistic exploration. An ongoing long-term project that aims to research, testify to and document an important issue in climate change: the relationship between society and its geography, ie, climate, natural resources, borders, energy sources, food, cultural identities, economy and space. Societies in the world that will suffer from climate change before they can adapt. #climatechange #globalwarming #southamerica #latinamerica #chile #coquimbo #water #socialissues #leica #leicaq
