Everything you need to know about ivory poaching | South China Morning Post | GarryRogers Biosphere News | Scoop.it
A ban was imposed in 1989 banning the international trade in ivory to reverse a rapid decline in the population of African elephants. But to no avail. Illegal hunting and killing of elephants remains a sad reality in Africa despite the ban. Here we examine how the beasts continue to be slaughtered to satisfy global demand for ivory.

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.
