83% of Madagascar’s palms near extinction - and 20,219 other species

83% of Madagascar’s palms near extinction - and 20,219 other species | The Wild Planet | Scoop.it
Hyderabad, India – Eighty three percent of Madagascar’s palms are threatened with extinction, putting the livelihoods of local people at risk – according to the latest update of The IUCN Red List of Threatened Species™ released today by the...

October 17, 2012 Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN)

“The high extinction risk faced by Madagascar’s palms reflects the decline in these forests, which threatens all of the remarkable wildlife that occurs there.”

Forests have been rapidly shrinking as land is being cleared for agriculture and logging.

“The figures on Madagascar’s palms are truly terrifying, especially as the loss of palms impacts both the unique biodiversity of the island and its people,” says Dr Jane Smart, Global Director, IUCN Biodiversity Conservation Group. “This situation cannot be ignored.”

Between 1990 and 2010, 90% of oil palm plantations in Kalimantan were established on forested land (47% intact, 22% logged, 21% agroforests).... http://www.redd-monitor.org/2012/10/10/oil-palm-plantations-replacing-forests-in-kalimantan/

Myths, More than Traditional Medicine, Driving Rhino Slaughter

Myths, More than Traditional Medicine, Driving Rhino Slaughter | The Wild Planet | Scoop.it
A conservationist seeks new approaches to exposing myths driving a wave of rhino poaching.

 

Rhinoceros populations from Asia through Africa are plummeting in the face of burgeoning illicit trade in their horns, much of it driven by myths promoted by criminal smuggling syndicates and targeting the new wealthy in China and Vietnam...

 

Matt Wilkinson: As someone who devotes his days to highlighting wildlife conservation in Africa, when I’m asked to name my greatest concern, without hesitation I say the poaching onslaught devastating rhinoceros populations....

 

...instead of demonizing traditional Asian medical practices solely based on the use of rhino horn, it’s time greater emphasis is placed upon promoting these herbal alternatives. With perfectly valid and cost effective herbal remedies, who exactly is benefiting from the trade in the prohibitively expensive rhino horn? Surely not the end user....

Swimming in water filled with their own waste, the turtles fight for food, bite each other and even resort to cannibalism. Many suffer from disease and birth defects, such as injured fins or missing eyes.... http://www.stopseaturtlefarm.org/
