Rare crocodile increasing with grassroots conservation

Rare crocodile increasing with grassroots conservation

Posted Tue, 13 May 2014 14:18:00 GMT by Dave Armstrong

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!

The only way to fight the greed and the land-grabbing of large corporations and governments is to enlist local people to educate, to work and to succeed in encouraging others to conserve and use natural resources is sustainable ways. One ray of light is the annual awards of the Whitley Awards

In the summer to come, the Hebrides are host to their 9 newly-discovered killer whales. Accompanying them is the Silurian, a magnificent research vessel equipped with specialist equipment to follow the 24 species of whales found off the west coast of Scotland.

At last, the Pacific is being reconverted from a plastic waste dump into the original coral island ecosystem we all know it deserves to be. Wake up, the rest of Oceania, and take part in the big oceanscape they are planning in the western ocean.

What would you do with Indonesia? All the forest is threatened and multi-nationals insist on logging on. Except for one, that is, and now will they all perform an about-turn and conserve our rainforest species, habitats and futures?

Want to protect rhino and elephant? Put your money into drone surveillance and we'll see how many poachers we can catch in Kenya. Trouble is, the Far East may get their supplies elsewhere.

Sustainability of land use, or lack of it

Sustainability of land use, or lack of it

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.

Anti-poaching drones: the answer!

How will we prevent the Chinese and other poaching gangs from continuing their greedy and bloodthirsty crimes? The use of military units has already proved useful and suitably adverse conditions for the cowardly crime. Now a semi-permanent eye in the sky will obviously enable more efficient use of rangers and prevent their deaths!

How to provide for indigenous and other peoples with a rare animal as a food source and sustain their diet? (As well as make sure we don’t have another extinction on our hands). A scientific approach is required in the Caribbean, where little seems to be going well in some countries, while others conserve their fauna and flora to make large profits from tourism.

Stork Renaissance

Stork Renaissance

Posted Fri, 04 Apr 2014 06:35:00 GMT by JW Dowey

Stalking the fabulous stork in Britain has been a forlorn experience for a long time. Vagrants and margarine have been the only possibilities, but with a little help from their friends, 2 individuals have literally set up home on a Norfolk chimney and seem primed to produce more 2-meter wing-spanned aliens. These effects of global warming are welcome, perhaps they will recognise the current Sahara sand covering the east of England.

Even the tiniest larva of the threatened Triturus cristatus, (great crested newt) can be detected with eDNA techniques. With this eye-opening research, the smallest invertebrates can be quickly assessed too, giving us great insight into current situations of species.

When is an alien species really alien? Maybe only when it is a critical danger to another species. A new book from a popular author puts forward persuasive and alarming arguments. Camels, eagles, snakes, spiders and influenza virus, wrapped up in invasive packaging.

Greening our oceans?

After the World Ocean Summit, the long term future is not assured. We can hope that the more positive nations move on aggressively, to combat those people and industries who would violently continue their unthinking habits. Some fishing and eating habits became obsolete when so many species, great and small, started to disappear

We struggle against invasive species, but sometimes research helps to finally understand what can be done to preserve the status quo. The red squirrel is healthy in Europe and in Scotland, but where pine forests are less common and the grey’s virus can strike, none remain.

They used to rule the roost and the skies in North America, with even bigger species of Gymnogyps flying until recently. Now the Californian condors are finding it difficult to eke an existence while they are being poisoned by lead from bullets fired by ranchers, poachers and hunters.

With discovery comes responsibility. At least we don’t face extinction yet for the chimpanzee. These last great discoveries of the “polluting era” are important in that we can still recover the situation for many species, some of them on their last legs. In the case of our closest relative, we need to motivate, to work hard and even fight to the death for the result that is imperative.
