Losing Our Grizzly Bears: the fall of the wild

Losing Our Grizzly Bears: the fall of the wild

Posted Thu, 14 Nov 2013 08:55:00 GMT by Chris Nunnally

The grizzly bear, Ursus arctos, with 3 American subspecies, is one of the last symbols of wilderness remaining in North America. Already in danger from a failing habitat, the grizzly now faces its potential demise at the hands of political ladder-climbing. Will we act in time to preserve the species or allow this majestic and misunderstood creature to fade into the annals of history?

Do we help the gorillas and the great fauna of Africa as profit and greed take them all from us? This is an appeal from the very top to help the famed mountain gorilla, one of the 2 eastern sub-species and the best known.

The Aquila genus is normally successful wherever it roams, but there is some doubt about fitness in a quite recent colonisation of Tasmania by a sub-species. Learning more about such gene flow is critical to all conservation.

New methods of promoting conservation are very much needed, as turtles approach extinction for some species. The golfers are among those who could easily give a lead in helping out endangered animals, or even those plants on the links!

Summer holiday for whales - in the North Sea!

Summer holiday for whales - in the North Sea!

When good figures appear in reports, we tend to forget about needless slaughter of whales in places such as Iceland and Japan. However, we can never forget the inability to change and the refusal to accept other people’s opinions.

When oil money contaminates Africa, it has produced no improvement in the lot of local people. In perhaps the most spectacular of wildlife 'locations' on earth, it is time to draw the line and pull out all the stops that conservation has.

Romania isn’t the first country in the EU to come to mind for conservation, but they are extremely rich in species, habitats and environment. Ask the reptiles!

With pseudonyms because the state is still controlling them, conservation activists in “Persia” protect their bears and leopard. Much more work will keep them busy with anti-pollution measures and protecting the tiny creatures and plants that give Iran such beautiful biodiversity.

Worldwide, even the obvious and large animals are in danger, never mind the tiny and inconspicuous species, such as the tapir. How on earth can we manage to restrain our own species from the careless and useless destruction of habitat that is the basis of almost every extinction?

There is a need to celebrate some of our successes in conservation, and perhaps our most needy continent in terms of loss of historic niches, is Europe. This document, prepared for an October conference is a great achievement in itself, as well as that of all of those past and present conservationists who had enough foresight to get out and do this!

When people get involved with such an emotional issue as our environment, it is perhaps permissible to become heated, but you have to be deeply involved to make judgements on people sitting next to you.

When we assess the ways in which bluefin tuna have been treated over the past two decades, there will be a need to apply the hard lessons of failure and irresponsible fishing.
