Drastic measures are required to save the beleaguered animal from extinction, say scientists... http://www.guardian.co.uk/environment/2013/feb/07/polar-bears-fed-by-humans-survive

 

Feb 15, 2013 Living on Earth: STARVING POLAR BEARS
Polar Bears have long been the poster species for the problem of climate change. But a new paper in Conservation Letters argues that supplemental feeding may be necessary to prevent polar bear populations from going extinct. Polar bear expert Andrew Derocher from the University of Alberta joins Host Steve Curwood to discuss how we can save the largest bear on the planet.http://www.loe.org/shows/segments.html?programID=13-P13-00007&segmentID=2

Why Biodiversity Loss Deserves as Much Attention as Climate Change

Why Biodiversity Loss Deserves as Much Attention as Climate Change | Biodiversity IS Life  – #Conservation #Ecosystems #Wildlife #Rivers #Forests #Environment | Scoop.it

Biodiversity loss is probably a challenge that is often ignored as climate change looms. Currently the world is losing species at a rate that is 100 to 1000 times faster than the natural extinction rate, further, it is currently seeing the sixth mass extinction.

Biodiversity crisis: Habitat loss and climate change causing 6th mass extinction : scientists

Scientists meeting at the University of Copenhagen have warned that biodiversity is declining rapidly throughout the world, describing the loss of species as the 6th mass extinction event on the earth. The world is losing species at a rate that is 100 to 1000 times faster than the natural extinction rate, with the challenges of conserving the world's species larger than mitigating the negative effects of global climate change.

Without Nature We Do Not Exist - The Value of Biodiversity

Without Nature We Do Not Exist - The Value of Biodiversity | Biodiversity IS Life  – #Conservation #Ecosystems #Wildlife #Rivers #Forests #Environment | Scoop.it
Biodiversity preservation can provide critical services to the poor.

The sixth great mass extinction is underway, and because of the threat it poses to global biodiversity, it is as great a threat to human well-being as climate change. The causes of this extinction event are quite clear: humans are out-competing all other species for scarce resources on a finite planet.

Report: Climate Change Has Already Brought Catastrophe to US Wildlife

Report: Climate Change Has Already Brought Catastrophe to US Wildlife | Biodiversity IS Life  – #Conservation #Ecosystems #Wildlife #Rivers #Forests #Environment | Scoop.it

Jan 30, 2013

Climate change has already pushed the nation's wildlife into crisis, according to a report released Wednesday from the National Wildlife Federation (NWF), and further catastrophe, including widespread extinction, can only be curbed with swift action to curb the carbon pollution that has the planet sweltering.

Entitled Wildlife in a Warming World: Confronting the Climate Crisis, the report looks at 8 regions across the U.S. where "the underlying climatic conditions to which species have been accustomed for thousands of years," the report explains, have been upturned by human-caused climate change.

“Some of America’s most iconic species—from moose to sandhill cranes to sea turtles – are seeing their homes transformed by rapid climate change,” stated Dr. Amanda Staudt, climate scientist at the National Wildlife Federation.

AFRICA: The Constant Gardeners - Sowing Seeds right where they are

AFRICA: The Constant Gardeners - Sowing Seeds right where they are | Biodiversity IS Life  – #Conservation #Ecosystems #Wildlife #Rivers #Forests #Environment | Scoop.it

Confronting climate change and poverty, a new crop of city farmers comes of age in Africa

Some 15 million Africans abandon the countryside every year in pursuit of better lives in the city. Climate change and further desertification will only exacerbate that trend. How will these ballooning urban populations survive? The best strategy, they're finding, is to begin sowing seeds right where they are.
