Carbon credits, afforestation and wildlife diversity, at last

Carbon credits, afforestation and wildlife diversity, at last

Posted Mon, 11 Aug 2014 06:30:00 GMT by JW Dowey

While politics plays a part, people’s hearts and minds are a much more important local cog in the process of building conservation, industrial, afforestation, eco-tourism and educational change into the environmental perspective.

Another extinct cetacean?

Another extinct cetacean?

Posted Thu, 07 Aug 2014 07:44:00 GMT by Dave Armstrong

The old story is about to repeat itself again. Small species with a limited niche, Chinese medicine again an ugly influence. The Mexican government and all available help will be needed to beat this extinction, visibly obvious as a fishing season approaches.A Conservation Challenge indeed!

Why must we hunt and make extinct those animals we know need conservation and, better than that, protection of all kinds? Bolivia hunts the giant ant eater and they’re extinct in Costa Rica and Uruguay. These habits of old have to die, or there will be nothing left in places where there should be a highly saleable diversity.

We need help to preserve the fantastic variation found in some areas of the world, alongside a full-blooded conservation effort for all plants and animals such as the widespread but unique Echidna here!

We need to help critically endangered species urgently.One of the most deserving and endearing is the mountain gorilla, although a real choice would be near-impossible. In Bwindi, the organisation-level is ensuring a growing population, so investment as a tourist seems one of the better prospects, given the difficulties many other species face. In some cases, your visit could conceivably cause their extinction!

We suffer from poisoning of our marine life with substances such as mercury, but there is also the problem that there are few left. Conservation of the little we have left in populated coastal areas is now essential, but governments still drag their feet.

Why should we mourn an African elephant? Maybe because they mourn their own dead. Or better, because the environments of Africa today contains a mere 10,000, reducing annually by a massive number. The Chinese have to stop their trade in many countries and we have to fight for our elephants very hard. Otherwise, all 3 species will be extinct, like the mammoths.

We have problems with rare mammals everywhere, but to lose more of the precious faunal elements of the Australian bush amounts to an almost criminal lack of worldwide responsibility. The marsupials and monotremes do live in the Americas and New Guinea east of the Wallace Line, so their fascinating evolution and divergences can be discovered too.

The rare animals of this word need government legal protection and local people involved in their conservation and that of their habitats. Tourism is only one of the benefits that comes from successful work, there’s also the huge pride in being the only people to have such a beast!

Luc Gnacadja has presented us with a striking and memorable picture of land as we know it, have known and will know it. Agencies and government can argue, but the future is more important than they are. Heeding good advice is the key to slowing this precipitous collapse of our forest areas, soils and agriculture.
