                                           A LOVELY WATCH

                        "THE LAST ORANGUTAN EDEN" (53:10)

                                                 PBSNature

Ecologist Chris Morgan travels to the jungles of Northern Sumatra to document the work being done to save its population of wild orangutans. Asia’s most intelligent ape once roamed across the Indonesian islands of Sumatra and Java, but today, fewer than 7,000 Sumatran orangutans remain in the wild. The film cites rapid deforestation — clearing the land for vast palm oil plantations — as the chief reason for the species’ declining population. But as Morgan shows, conservationists are trying to reverse that trend by teaching orphaned orangutans the survival skills they’ll need for release back into the jungle. He also accompanies researchers deep into a remote and protected peat swamp forest to study wild orangutans up close to learn about their culture and behavior.

▶  BIOLOGICAL DESERTS: THE ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACTS OF THE GMO MONOCULTURE BIOFUEL AND PALM OIL INDUSTRY The mass clearing of trees for farmland disturbs the ecosystem of the rainforest by decimating rare and exotic flora and fauna. With the planting of a single crop plantation, the natural biodiversity of the rainforest is lost. The mono-crop culture that has long-plagued environmentalists in the west displaces or destroys most of the species in a single sitting, as they are unable to adapt to living within vast acres of a single crop. The environment, habitats and species that are destroyed have lived together since the dawn of the rainforest, and the damage caused by palm oil farming is irreversible http://sco.lt/9AeHbN

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.

A VERY IMPORTANT VIDEO - Who Gave Us the Right?  "Green - Death of the Forests" (:45min) | Biodiversity IS Life  – #Conservation #Ecosystems #Wildlife #Rivers #Forests #Environment | Scoop.it

“If we never look at the consequences of our behavior, we can always maintain the illusion of our competence. ." Dietrich Dörner

 

Via: AL JAZEERA "WITNESS" Expose

Green is an unusual film. It contains no narrative or dialogue and yet helps us understand complex commodity chains. It is both a hard hitting portrayal of the causes and consequences of deforestation in Indonesia, and a film which captures the tranquillity and calm of wild nature.  The film takes viewers on an emotional journey, following Green's final days and revealing the devastating impact of fulfilling unbridled consumerism thru logging, land-clearing and palm oil plantations.

Stunning images of the natural world and its biodiversity are counter-pointed with scenes of their destruction and the resulting loss of all life in the forest. NOTE: This film contains upsetting scenes including cruelty to animals.

HUNTING SEED DISPERSING ANIMALS PUSHING CENTRAL AFRICAN FORESTS TOWARD ECOLOGICAL COLLAPSE

 Scientists have warned that current hunting trends in Central African forests could result in complete ecological collapse.

The authors maintain that the current rate of unsustainable hunting of forest elephants, gorillas and other seed-dispersing species threatens the ability of forest ecosystems to regenerate, and that landscape-wide hunting management plans are needed to avoid an environmental catastrophe..... http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2013/07/130723103451.htm

New Scientist, September 08, 2014
▶  EBOLA'S SILVER LINING:  WE CAN CLAMP DOWN ON BUSHMEAT. According to the World Health Organization, the Ebola virus enters human populations when people handle or eat infected wildlife, especially fruit bats, chimpanzees, monkeys, forest antelopes and porcupines. Eating bushmeat remains common throughout Africa, either for subsistence or as a luxury.

The Ebola outbreak is an opportunity to clamp down on a practice which both causes disease outbreaks and empties forests of wildlife. At a minimum, governments should zealously enforce bans on the hunting and consumption of bats and apes, two groups most commonly associated with Ebola. http://www.newscientist.com/article/mg22329850.300-ebolas-silver-lining-we-can-clamp-down-on-bushmeat.html

A Global Urgency: Tackling the illegal trade in wild animals | Biodiversity IS Life  – #Conservation #Ecosystems #Wildlife #Rivers #Forests #Environment | Scoop.it

March 1, 2013 - The Guardian Environment

The grisly trade in wild animals is underpinned by slaughter, smuggling and money-laundering. It's time to get serious

Elephant poaching in the African continent is now at its highest for 20 years, with an estimated 25,000 elephants killed in 2011.

Illegal trade in wildlife has now reached a scale that poses an immediate risk to wildlife and to people. Over the past five years, we have seen a dramatic spike in the poaching and illegal trade in elephants and rhinos. In 2011 an estimated 25,000 elephants were poached across Africa and in South Africa alone 668 rhinos were lost to poachers in 2012.... http://www.guardian.co.uk/environment/blog/2013/mar/01/cites-animals-illegal-trade

14 Pygmy Elephants Die Mysteriously in Borneo - Clearing Forests - Elephants become "Pests"

14 Pygmy Elephants Die Mysteriously in Borneo - Clearing Forests - Elephants become "Pests" | Biodiversity IS Life  – #Conservation #Ecosystems #Wildlife #Rivers #Forests #Environment | Scoop.it

Jan 31, 2013 NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC Fourteen endangered Borneo pygmy elephants died of mysterious causes, conservationists.

Malaysian authorities discovered a group of elephant carcasses close together in the Gunung Rara Forest Reserve, located in the northeastern corner of Borneo (map), a Southeast Asian island shared by Indonesia, Malaysia, and Brunei.

"We don't know officially yet how they died, but what we do know is this is an area of forest that is being cleared for plantations, and it's very common that when the forest is cleared, conflict between humans and elephants spikes," said Long.

For instance, in agricultural areas in neighboring Sumatra, people have put out poisoned fruit for elephants to eat, causing a whole herd to drop dead in one area. The poison is usually whatever is locally available, such as rodenticide, he said.

YOUR SOAP BAR IS KILLING ENDANGERED ORANGUTANS.

In a tragic scene, a dying orangutan was found lying in Borneo with 40 air rifle pellets in her body, 10 of them in her head. Her arms and legs were broken and, despite the best efforts of medics, she died on Thursday.

The orangutan had been living on the fringes of a palm oil plantation, a farm that produces oil used in many packaged foods. It’s also in lipsticks, soaps, biodiesel and countless other products. The plantations are notorious for conflict with orangutans, because they usually set up shop in the heart of orangutan habitat. And, according to the Borneo Orangutan Survival Foundation, the group that tried to rescue the female orangutan, palm oil plantations have been known to provoke similar incidents all over Indonesia. https://www.thedodo.com/orangutan-killed-borneo-palm-860568193.html

TIMEWorld, October 31, 2013

HOW PALM OIL IS DRIVING THE SUMATRAN TIGER TO BRINK OF EXTINCTION It’s in your mascara, your laundry detergent and even your Oreo cookies — the world is addicted to palm oil. Indonesia is the largest exporter, but production there comes at a huge cost. Oil-palm plantations have savagely encroached on the nation’s diverse rainforests, and slash-and-burn clearance for new plantations recently engulfed much of Southeast Asia in acrid smog... http://world.time.com/2013/10/31/palm-oil-is-killing-the-sumatran-tiger/

The Connection Between Species Extinction, Organized Crime, and the Spread of Disease - Poaching

The Connection Between Species Extinction, Organized Crime, and the Spread of Disease - Poaching | Biodiversity IS Life  – #Conservation #Ecosystems #Wildlife #Rivers #Forests #Environment | Scoop.it

Dec. 8, 2012 - Huffington Post Green

THE CONNECTION BETWEEN SPECIES EXTINCTION, ORGANIZED CRIME, AND THE SPREAD OF DISEASE: POACHING

There is no lack of reasons to join efforts to stop wildlife trafficking. Together, we need to protect the source, break the chain and stop demand.

This year alone (2012), we anticipate that 30,000 African elephants will be killed for their ivory. It is estimated that 448 black rhinos were poached in 2012 in South Africa to meet the demand for their horns in Southeast Asia and China. Today, only 3,200 tigers remain in the wild because so many have been killed for their parts. More than 25 million individual sharks will be killed this year for their fins, including many from endangered species.,,
