Reserves and parks not enough to protect nature – David Attenborough

Reserves and parks not enough to protect nature – David Attenborough | GarryRogers Biosphere News | Scoop.it

Urgent:  "Broadcaster calls for radical new approach to conservation, urging people to use all spaces from gardens to roadside verges to help wildlife.

"Speaking at the RSPB’s Conference for Nature in London, Attenborough said it was now understood that British wildlife was in grave peril of disappearing. “50% of the hedgehog population has gone in 25 years, 90% of the wildlife meadows have disappeared in 100 years; 60% of all wildlife is diminishing and in danger, with 10% doomed to disappear in the next decades. Nowhere in Britain is unsullied, is unaffected by human action. We now have a huge population living cheek by jowl with nature”.

Garry Rogers's insight:

GR:  As the human population and impact grows, wildlife is declining worldwide just as in the U.K. The National Wildlife Federation Backyard Wildlife Habitat program covers basic ideas.  Start there.  Then, look for opportunities to recommend other sites.  As Attenborough says, many other places that we modify and use can be habitat.

English ivy: berry good for birds

English ivy: berry good for birds | GarryRogers Biosphere News | Scoop.it
Shelter, foodstuff, pollen source ... ivy is so valuable to wildlife, even though it is maligned by many a gardener
On Sunday I watched a blackbird almost strip an ivy of its berries, gobbling each one whole in a few, satisfying gulps.
Garry Rogers's insight:

GR:  Of Eurasian origin, English Ivy grows well in the arid climate in central Arizona where I live.  It requires supplemental water, and does not replace native plants.  Several sparrows roost beneath the leaves and try a berry now and then.  Northern Flickers eat the berries when it's too cold for ants to be out.
