German petition against clearing of tropical forest in #Cameroun.

Company Comvert Sarl wants a licence for 60'000 ha to plant oil palms, but the company has only 7'600 EURO capital and the project costs will estimated be 228'000'000 EURO. They don't have experience with palm oil and the owner is unknown. So they are suspect for just planning to cut tropical trees down for export. Lots of #biodiversity are at risk, mammals like #gorillas, #chimpansees, #elephants, #buffalos, #panthers and #pangolines.
 
 
Fascinating. Some fish eggs can survive going through a bird's digestive system.
Killifish manage to endure a variety of environments. The wee freshwater fish survive in isolated desert pools, lakes made by flood water, even seasonal ponds that are little more than puddles.

One place scientists didn’t expect to find them was in swan poop. But an international team of researchers reported last week in the journal Ecology that whole killifish eggs make it through the digestive tract of water birds intact, with one egg in the study even hatching more than a month after its transit through a swan. The findings suggest that bird feces may be capable of carrying fish eggs far from their original locations.
[...]
The researchers are planning a similar experiment now that uses eggs from carp, which hatch much faster than killifish. As killifish and carp can be invasive species outside of their normal range, understanding how they spread can help in containment.

#insects #biodiversity #counting

"One hundred camera traps, developed specifically for the automatic counting and recognition of insects, will be placed throughout the Netherlands this summer. This is a first, as this system has never before been used. Counting insects is very important and the system, announced last year, is popular. The builders have already received more requests than they can honor this year. The official launch of the project was in Engewormer on May 15".

"A growing number of farmers are rejecting modern agricultural practices, instead relying on more natural methods to improve their land and increase biodiversity.

Queensland banana growers Frank and Dianne Sciacca say they have quit their chemical "addiction" to grow bananas the way they were grown 60 years ago.

"We were putting chemicals in the soil and on the plants but it had a severe impact on the environment," Ms Sciacca said".

Let’s make sure Swedish politicians and all governments hear the call to declare a state of #ClimateEmergency, and act like it!

Proportions! Bigness! Cycling through La Guajira in the North of Colombia, we get close to Cerrejón, the biggest open-pit coal mine of South America. Beside the high technics and siccurity inside the mine, the exploitation, environmental and social impact is really impressive. We all need an urgent change, time is tight, each one of us can make a positive difference for a better future, if we only want to. Don't wait for others to make the first step, we must move all together, now! Simple daily actions: travel by 🚲, buy local, support organic, don't waste, reduce, reuse, recycle, plant a tree... Yes we can!

Your forests are your second largest storehouses of carbon after oceans. You take them for granted, you cut their trees, you take away it's biodiversity, with your agriculture, your unsustainability manners, your mining and from fires. 80% of the world's terrestrial biodiversity is found in forests, yet, they are disappearing in silent. Because of human activity. Because your confort is way too good to be changed for more ethic and sustainable ways. At least, forests and everything they contain will still be on pictures, on videos and on books, even when there will be none of it left. Yes, one day, if you don't protect them, forests will be gone. It's 2019, and 40% of the world's forests has already been lost. Maybe you can protect the 60% left. Maybe you can restore the 40%. You can, all it requires is to trade your confort for action and change, and NOW is a good time to do it.
Avoid palm oil, reduce your footprint, buy responsibly, recycle, reduce your paper use, trade books. Make a change. Change the future.
"When we take away the forest, it is not just the trees that go. The entire ecosystem begins to fall apart, with dire consequences for all of us." 🌎💚

The Rapid Decline Of The Natural World Is A Crisis Even Bigger Than Climate Change

A three-year UN-backed study from the Intergovernmental Science-Policy Platform On Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services has grim implications for the future of humanity.
