Hatching Giants on Galapagos!

Hatching Giants on Galapagos!

Posted Tue, 27 Jan 2015 17:45:00 GMT by JW Dowey

The Galapagos tortoise is, along with one or two other island species, precious and almost mythical in its great size and long life. Now, we at last, we are conserving these interesting creatures properly, instead of letting them slowly die out, like Lonely George!

Wolfing it in Oregon

Wolfing it in Oregon

What to do with wolves? Are they any use and how dangerous are they? How can they be managed or do they manage wildlife themselves? Questions to be answered carefully and very fully.

Can we afford extinction, or conservation?

Can we afford extinction, or conservation?

In all the world, who will decide when to pull the plug on a species, when it is possible to save it from extinction. The answer is a computer, but then follows the question, who will control the use of the computer and have a veto on its advice? I think we know the answer to that.

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

Conservation and Reintroductions

Posted Tue, 18 Nov 2014 23:00:00 GMT by Paul Robinson

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.
