The Coral Reef Crisis Threatens Nature’s Ability To Help Us Deal With Climate Change

The Coral Reef Crisis Threatens Nature’s Ability To Help Us Deal With Climate Change | Conservation & Environment | Scoop.it
Not all storms and other natural hazards need to turn in to disasters. That is a core message of the just released 2012 World Risk Report, led by the Alliance for Development Works, United Nations University, and The Nature Conservancy.

October 14, 2012 - Planet Change

Many decisions and investments for coastal protection are being made today. The concern is that most money will go to gray infrastructure (artificial breakwaters and seawalls) – with further detrimental effects on coasts and habitats, expensive maintenance costs and no other benefits beyond their protective service.

Green infrastructure solutions, like reef and mangrove conservation and restoration, are viable and cost effective alternatives.... http://change.nature.org/2012/10/11/people-at-risk-to-natural-disasters-and-how-nature-can-help/

Welcome to Stop Sea Turtle Farming | Stop Sea Turtle Farming

Welcome to Stop Sea Turtle Farming | Stop Sea Turtle Farming | Conservation & Environment | Scoop.it

Sea turtles are amazing. These solitary swimmers cover thousands of miles. So just imagine the cruelty of trapping one in a small filthy tank. Now imagine hundreds, thousands. Packed together, sea turtles get sick and stressed. They turn on each other. Tourists that pay to ‘meet’ these sensitive animals might not recognise the bite wounds, or know that handling them is mental torment.

The farm targets these same tourists again when it ends the turtles’ miserable lives, slaughtering them for sale as steaks and burgers. We think sea turtles deserve better. Let’s stop sea turtle farming today.
