Say NO to Risky Arctic Drilling - Ocean Conservancy

Say NO to Risky Arctic Drilling - Ocean Conservancy | conservation & antipoaching | Scoop.it

The U.S. government is starting to prepare a five-year program—spanning the years 2017 to 2022—that could open the Arctic Ocean to oil and gas drilling. Stand with us against new oil and gas leasing and protect the animals and people who depend on a clean, healthy Arctic Ocean.

Tell the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) to say no to risky Arctic drilling.

Fossil fuels pollute our air and water.  Overfishing, ocean acidification, and other human activities are already harming marine life.  Let's stop looking for oil and clean up the mess we've already made.  Please sign the petition.

The same thing goes on here in the U. S.  This year the Arizona Game and Fish Department had to advertize to sell all the hunting permits it needed to sell.  Some of those permits are for animals that are doomed by approaching development.  They are going to become extinct anyway, so why not let hunters pay to kill a few.  The Department needs the money.

Global Protection Proposed for Sharks, Rays, Sawfish, Polar Bears and Lions - UNEP

Global Protection Proposed for Sharks, Rays, Sawfish, Polar Bears and Lions - UNEP | conservation & antipoaching | Scoop.it

Bonn, Germany, 13 June 2014 - "Some of the world's most endangered species, many of them migratory, are facing unprecedented threats from climate change and habitat destruction to overexploitation and pollution. This has led to a number of new listing proposals for consideration at the Convention on Migratory Species Convention of the Parties, a key international wildlife conference scheduled to take place 4-9 November 2014 in Quito, Ecuador.

"The deadline for listing proposals for CMS COP11 was 6 June and a total of 32 species have been proposed for listing into Appendix I, which requires strict protection, and Appendix II, which requires coordinated management by the countries in which the species migrate."

Take Action to Protect Wildlife

Take Action to Protect Wildlife | conservation & antipoaching | Scoop.it

"The "Bipartisan Sportsmen's Act of 2014" is harmful to wildlife and natural areas in many ways, and would force local land managers to give priority to trapping, hunting, fishing and shooting over all the other ways that Americans and their families enjoy Federal lands, such as hiking, biking, bird watching and kayaking. We all should be able to experience our public lands free from the dangers posed by the tiny minority of those who hunt animals. We also should be free to have those lands and wildlife protected from the dangers of lead poisoning (from lead bullets) -- an issue this bill expressly forbids scientists from even considering.

"Take action to protect wildlife habitat by calling your U.S. Senator today. It only takes a couple minutes, but your calls and phone messages have a powerful impact with legislators. You can simply say....

For more than three decades, the Animal Legal Defense Fund has been fighting to protect the lives and advance the interests of animals through the legal system.

Garry Rogers's curator insight, July 3, 8:43 AM

Our leaders should not risk harming Earth ecosystems. Without formal courses in ecology, they are susceptible to false arguments.  When we allow special interests to supply experts and offer campaign support, nonsense receives equal time. Errors are inevitable.  We have to take the action called for in this article, but we must recognize we are treating symptoms.  Let's also look for ways to call for better nature education.

Save the Endangered Species Act From Corporate Polluters!

Save the Endangered Species Act From Corporate Polluters! | conservation & antipoaching | Scoop.it

About the Petition

Right now the Endangered Species Act is under attack—and ferrets, gray wolves, and the more than 1,500 other plants and animals it safeguards are in jeopardy.

A band of pro-polluter members of Congress, led by Rep. Doc Hastings, is ramming through a series of misleading and devastating bills that would gut the ESA. They say their only goal is to "reform" the act, but we know what they really want: to let corporate polluters profit from logging, mining, and drilling our most vulnerable wildlife into oblivion.

Protecting natural habitat bolsters our economy to the tune of $1.6 trillion a year, and 99 percent of all animals ever protected under the act have been saved from extinction.

More than 40 years ago, Americans stood as one to create the ESA. It's time to come together again to save it. Take action right now, and tell Congress: Protect our wildlife, and save the Endangered Species Act!

Double trouble for the Mediterranean Sea: Acidification and warming threaten iconic species

Double trouble for the Mediterranean Sea: Acidification and warming threaten iconic species | conservation & antipoaching | Scoop.it
Scientist have finalized their findings about the threat of Mediterranean Sea warming and acidification on key species and ecosystems after a 3.5 year study. They have found that this sea is warming and acidifying at unprecedented rates – the main reason is emissions of carbon dioxide to the atmosphere from burning fossil fuels. This increases the CO2 in the atmosphere causing warming of the atmosphere and the ocean as well as acidification of its waters due to uptake of CO2 by surface waters.
