Diverse worlds of animals and plants disappearing

Diverse worlds of animals and plants disappearing

Posted Fri, 18 Jul 2014 10:45:00 GMT by Dave Armstrong

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!

Gorillas see tourists by appointment

Gorillas see tourists by appointment

Posted Sun, 29 Jun 2014 08:39:00 GMT by JW Dowey

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!

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

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?

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.

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.
