Humpbacks Come Back

Humpbacks Come Back

Posted Wed, 10 Dec 2014 11:55:54 GMT by JW Dowey

The large whales are now almost considered as close relatives. We all regard them as conserved by our actions, apart from one or two nations. Now the need is to look at the smaller mammals, the almost-extinct, and those creatures who never get a look-in when the IUCN declare others as critically-endangered. Some species such as the whale can now function even as samplers of the species beneath them in the food webs. We can get some idea of other populations’ progress if we study the diet of certain critical animals. The plant kingdom have already given us information about dim and distant climates and still more will appear as technologies allow us access to information we urgently need about how the Earth works.

Sentinels for our distant past in Andamans?

Sentinels for our distant past in Andamans?

We need to protect many animals and plants throughout our domain, but the domain of other humans needs protection too, as we well know. Here is possibly the last totally isolated culture on earth, just about to be destroyed by poachers, unless we act to defend them from the disease and the desolation that our civilisation brings them

Conservation and Reintroductions

With the elephant and rhino populations deeply depressed (as we are), reintroduction must be the real aim of conservation of the endangered. Once we have disposed of the poachers and pet traders, a real habitat with a real life must exist in some special somewhere for every species. The science of how to do it is still in its infancy, but here is a strong beginning.

We are told we need fish, but for most now, there simply won’t be any. Nutrition and sustainability hit yet another block, while not even the very rich will dine on sushi.

International cooperation can create recovery from the Aral Sea disaster

Posted Thu, 30 Oct 2014 11:41:00 GMT by Dave Armstrong

The conference we mentioned last week has produced very hopeful 'green shoots' of hope for financial, agricultural and hydrological solutions to the problems facing the peoples around the Aral Sea. The environmental catastrophe of toxic dust, total loss of species and livelihoods and currently high levels of cancers and TB have finally stirred up increased international cooperation from a multitude of partners and donors such as Asian and Islamic banks. First, we have some heartening eco-news..
