Monospecific landscapes are boring.  Wouldn't we all prefer to have a few more cheetahs and a few less humans?

Elephant conservation: The need for political will

Elephant conservation: The need for political will | conservation & antipoaching | Scoop.it

The greatest threat to the safety of Africa’s elephants is not the poachers who prey on them for their tusks; rather it’s the governments of many of their homelands who lack the political will to ensure their safety. Indeed these very governments are in many cases complicit in the demise of these great animals.

Francesco Nardelli's curator insight, October 1, 3:27 PM

It is wrong, not feasible, dangerous, etc.  The arguments of contra against pro trade are clearly overwhelming but, those animals faith is depending on the absurd 2/3 majority rule from votes of  bureaucrats at next CITES meeting. That nonsense has to change before 2016.

"Hey! Ho! Fossil Fuels Have Got to Go!" -- World Sees Largest Climate March in History Amidst Mounting Dangers

"Hey! Ho! Fossil Fuels Have Got to Go!" -- World Sees Largest Climate March in History Amidst Mounting Dangers | conservation & antipoaching | Scoop.it
According to the National Climate Data Center, the summer of 2014 was the hottest in the global record. It was a season of record wildfires, sea surface temperatures far above the 20th Century average, and of record droughts and rainfall events around the globe. And it was a year in which the ability of nations to provide food for the world’s seven billion and growing population amidst a mounting tally of extreme droughts and floods was called increasingly into question.

On Sunday September 24, 2014, the ever-more alarmed people of the world responded.

Garry Rogers's curator insight, September 22, 1:23 PM

GR:  Human impacts are so massive that "reasonable" compromises have no effect.  This post is about greenhouse gasses and global warming.  Other stories about plastic in the oceans, pesticides on the land, and our bulging population’s growing need for building, burning, cutting, fishing, grazing, hunting, and plowing are also untouched by "reasonable" compromises.  We need to redefine our compromises as effective immediately (say 2 years) vs. long-term (10 years).  It is nonsense to let special interests such as the oil/coal industry have their congressmen suggest reasonable solutions.

Alcohol consumption isn't the only thing a breath analysis can reveal. Scientists have been studying its possible use for diagnosing a wide range of conditions in humans -- and now in the beloved bottlenose dolphin. One team describes a new instrument that can analyze the metabolites in breath from dolphins, which have been dying in alarming numbers along the Atlantic coast this year.
