                                           A LOVELY WATCH

                        "THE LAST ORANGUTAN EDEN" (53:10)

                                                 PBSNature

Ecologist Chris Morgan travels to the jungles of Northern Sumatra to document the work being done to save its population of wild orangutans. Asia’s most intelligent ape once roamed across the Indonesian islands of Sumatra and Java, but today, fewer than 7,000 Sumatran orangutans remain in the wild. The film cites rapid deforestation — clearing the land for vast palm oil plantations — as the chief reason for the species’ declining population. But as Morgan shows, conservationists are trying to reverse that trend by teaching orphaned orangutans the survival skills they’ll need for release back into the jungle. He also accompanies researchers deep into a remote and protected peat swamp forest to study wild orangutans up close to learn about their culture and behavior.

An Award Winning Documentary by Patrick Rouxel on the Indonesian rainforest, deforestation and orangutan extinction. 

 

Her name is GREEN, she is alone in a world that doesn’t belong to her. She is a female orangutan, victim of deforestation and resource exploitation. This film is an emotional journey with GREEN’s final days. With no narration, it is a visual ride presenting the devastating impacts of logging and land clearing for palm oil plantations, the choking haze created by rainforest fires and the tragic end of rainforest biodiversity. We watch the effects of consumerism and are faced with our personal accountability in the loss of the world’s rainforest treasures.                                                http://sco.lt/6IIb0T

GUNNING DOWN WOLVES : German farmers demand the right to hunt wolves

GUNNING DOWN  WOLVES : German farmers demand the right to hunt wolves | Biodiversity IS Life  – #Conservation #Ecosystems #Wildlife #Rivers #Forests #Environment | Scoop.it

Jan 13, 2012 Deutsche Welle

Wolves were hunted nearly to extinction in Germany in the 20th century. But over the past decade, they have been making a slow return. Farmers say the wolves are pests and should be hunted down.... http://www.dw.de/german-farmers-demand-the-right-to-hunt-wolves/a-16568810?maca=en-rss-en-environment-4553-rdf

 

Lobos of the SouthWest, December 23, 2013
WOLF POPULATIONS SHOULD BE ASSESSED BY PACKS, NOT INDIVIDUALS  “Wolves are perhaps the most social of all nonhuman vertebrates. A ‘pack’ of wolves is not a snarling aggregation of fighting beasts, each bent on fending only for itself, but a highly organized, well-disciplined group of related individuals or family units, all working together in a remarkably amiable, efficient manner.” http://www.mexicanwolves.org/index.php/news/1174/51/Op-Ed-Wolf-Populations-Should-Be-Assessed-by-Packs-Not-Individuals
