State of the World's Birds Report indicates a planet in peril

State of the World's Birds Report indicates a planet in peril | NIALA TUANER "Hobbyist Wildlife Photographer" | Scoop.it

June 20, 2013 BirdLife International

Declines in birds across the globe are providing evidence of a rapid deterioration in the global environment that is affecting all life on earth – including people. However, birds also tell us that saving the planet comes at a relatively small price – an investment that’s vital to secure our own future.

These are some of the messages in a new report State of the world’s birds: indicators for our changing world by the world’s largest Partnership of conservation organisations...

“Birds provide an accurate and easy to read environmental barometer that allows us to see clearly the pressures our current way of life are putting on the world’s biodiversity”, said Dr Leon Bennun, BirdLife’s Director of Science, Information and Policy.... http://www.birdlife.org/community/2013/06/birds-indicate-a-planet-in-peril-but-investing-in-conservation-makes-economic-sense/

BIOLOGICAL DESERTS: THE ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACTS OF THE GMO MONOCULTURE BIOFUEL AND PALM OIL INDUSTRY

The mass clearing of trees for farmland disturbs the ecosystem of the rainforest by decimating rare and exotic flora and fauna. With the planting of a single crop plantation, the natural biodiversity of the rainforest is lost. The mono-crop culture that has long-plagued environmentalists in the west displaces or destroys most of the species in a single sitting, as they are unable to adapt to living within vast acres of a single crop. The environment, habitats and species that are destroyed have lived together since the dawn of the rainforest, and the damage caused by palm oil farming is irreversible http://sco.lt/9AeHbN

Monica S Mcfeeters's curator insight, July 19, 2013 2:49 AM

Here are many links all in one place so you can start looking over the bird situation from one site. I think we all love birds when they don't leave us too many "presents" in the wrong places or wake us up too early. I certainly will lovingly accept unwanted presents if the price is to loose my feathered friends.

 

I personally share my yard and often my porch or deck with a peacock that decided to live at my house.  I clean-up a bit after him and he loudy lets me know when someone strange is in the yard.....And then we just walk, fly, sit and stand around watching each other do things.

Birds can tell even in the Bible days  check Noah he sent out a bird to check for dry land after the flood and when the bird did not return it meant the land was safe for Noah and his family to come out of the Ark onto dry land !
