Records of recent conservation in America

Records of recent conservation in America

Posted Mon, 09 Dec 2013 13:49:00 GMT by Paul Robinson

The empty wildernesses are filling up with corn monoculture once again. The US record for conservation has been good recently, with iconic species saved, but with low human populations, the wolf, the bear and the tiny members of food webs should be able to rest easy in large stretches of their habitat with great National Parks set aside exclusively for them.

Tuna need conservation-what do Fisheries Commissions do?

Tuna need conservation-what do Fisheries Commissions do?

With populations in the Atlantic very low, the bulk of the Japanese expensive taste for tuna is catered for in the distant Pacific islands. The need is to regulate these small ports and stop the rot before 2 more species become simply another gap in the ecosystem.

The wonder of a beautiful sea “monster” is never lost, but while some species like the great leatherback turtle have varying fortunes, many birds and others are in the process of disappearing for ever.

Yet again, the Hainan group of seaturtles911 get a recovered turtle into the sea, after she was found emaciated and hungry in the Pacific. Finally we get up-to-date with these busy conservationists.

The golfing fraternity and sorority have joined forces with Seaturtles911 to put back a little of that we have taken, in the case of hawksbills and green turtles. It’s about time that sport generally associated itself with clean water and pristine environment, without destroying any useful habitats for rare species.

The conservation - or extinction, of little-known Asian mammals

The conservation - or extinction, of little-known Asian mammals

Posted Fri, 22 Nov 2013 10:07:51 GMT by Dave Armstrong

Mammals survive only in habitats that we keep safe. In Asia, Africa and South America, the final discoveries are being made of almost extinct species, but they won't last long! We have reached the end of jungle, the loss of true discovery, but there is a possibility we can maintain our wonder at these individuals with adaptations to the forest that belong in our ancestors’ dreams.

What can we do, miles away from the beautiful forests that are being torn down, as we watch on satellite. The argument that some countries gambled with their own forests centuries ago is irrelevant, as wooden ships are no longer tools of warfare and sheer greed drives these loggers on to final destruction of whole systems.

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!

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.

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.
