#Regram #RG @greenmatters: Renewable energy played a key role in this achievement, since the biggest emissions reductions were in the electricity sector. Solar power alone grew 33%, while natural gas, an energy source derived from fossil fuels, dropped by over 15%.⠀ ⠀ The California Air Resources Board reported a 13% reduction in carbon pollution since the state’s 2004 peak, even as the economy grew by 26%. The state currently boasts a “carbon intensity” — meaning the amount of carbon pollution emitted per $1 million of gross state product — that’s half the national average!⠀ ⠀ The 2030 target will require California to cut its emissions an additional 40 percent below 1990 levels, a goal that the state is calling “the most ambitious carbon goal in North America.”⠀ ⠀ #learngreen #livegreen #california #climateaction #cleanenergy #solarpower #solar #renewable #actonclimate #greenmatters

#Regram #RG @unfoundation: “Villagers of East End in the Pig Keys plant hundreds of mangrove seedlings in the wake of hurricane Mitch. The mangroves will eventually grow tall and help anchor the shoreline, offering a natural barrier to storm surges. The Caribbean islands off the coast of Honduras and their inhabitants are particularly vulnerable to the effects of #climatechange. As the waters warm, the reefs that have sustained the Garifuna people’s way of life are vanishing from bleaching. As sea levels rise, their humble homes are flooded. And as storms grow fiercer in the late summer, they live with imminent fear. Perhaps more than just a first line of defense, these seedlings symbolize hope and resiliency for a people who face the looming threats of climate change every day.” Mangroves offer a two-for-one solution to climate change by protecting coastlines and absorbing carbon dioxide. Many countries are exploring ways to conserve and restore mangroves to help meet the goals of the Paris Agreement.

#Regram #RG @paulnicklen: Alaska's Katmai National Park and Preserve is home to the largest concentration of brown bears in the world. As many bear populations around the world decline, Katmai provides some of the few remaining unaltered habitats on Earth with bountiful and sustainable populations of wild salmon – a key food source for for these powerful and awe-inspiring creatures. Wild salmon are also the foundation of a nutrient cycle that sustains this entire ecosystem and a tourism industry built on fishing and bear watching. This all could change if the proposed Pebble Mine begins construction nearby. The millions upon millions of fish that come to the region every year to spawn, the largest sockeye salmon run in the world, will be put at risk in the pursuit of gold and copper when an entire infrastructure network of pipelines, roads, and shipping lanes take over the land. #Follow @Sea_Legacy as we take an in-depth look into this region in the upcoming months.
#Regram #RG @sea_legacy: Photo by @SimonAgerPhotography // Open net Atlantic salmon farms are currently in operation throughout some of the most essential and sensitive marine habitats in British Columbia. These fish farms are full of disease and pollution and have been contributing to a decline in the health of wild salmon. Wild salmon is a foundational species to the health of surrounding ecosystems and a decline in their populations affects all other species which rely on them for survival, including humans. Indigenous people have been fighting, and putting everything on the line to protect this sacred resource for decades. Starting in 2022, fish farm tenures will need to be approved by First Nation communities before they are renewed, initiating the first step in both reconciliation with these communities and protection for wild salmon. In the meantime, by sharing your voice as well as being a conscious consumer, you can help to #GetFishFarmsOut. When purchasing fish, check if it is wild salmon and talk to your vendor about where it came from. In honour of International Day of the World's Indigenous Peoples, let’s show support to ensure that wild salmon stocks are plentiful both now and for future generations.
#Regram #RG @rainforestalliance: The best way to protect the world’s forests? Keep people in them. In countries around the world, forests have remained intact precisely because local communities had long managed them effectively. These communities often farm and harvest timber on a very small scale, but keep commercial enterprises and illegal actors out. As we’ve seen in our work in Guatemala’s Maya Biosphere Reserve, if you hand forests to communities that have an incentive to keep the forest standing, and have a culture of forest-based livelihoods, it has proven to be a more effective approach to keeping the forest standing than traditional, strict protection. #rainforestalliance #followthefrog #guatemala #mayabiospherereserve #deforestation #communityforestry 📸: @sergioizquierdophoto

#Regram #RG @nytimes: From @nytmag | In March, Geophysical Research Letters reported that the western part of #Greenland’s ice sheet is melting at its fastest rate in at least 450 years. Some scientists believe that the Arctic hasn’t seen ice melt similar to this in 5,000 years. If the ice sheet melts entirely, sea levels would rise 20 feet, leaving Lower Manhattan underwater. Jason Gulley, a geologist, and Celia Trunz, a PhD student in geology, have been conducting meltwater research by releasing a fluorescent red dye to determine how and why more rivers form on the surface of the ice sheet and what will happen as a result of these new rivers. So far, they’ve found that the rivers lubricate the ice slab, making the sheets move faster toward the coasts — which could cause even more icebergs to calve into the ocean. @geosteinmetz took this #aerialphoto in Greenland while on assignment for @nytmag.

#Regram #RG @natgeo: Photograph by @cristinamittermeier // The government of the Democratic Republic of Congo remains steadfast in opening up parts of Virunga and Salonga National Parks, two UNESCO World Heritage Sites, for oil exploration and drilling. Virunga, Africa’s oldest national park, is one of the world’s most biologically diverse areas and is home to over half of the global population of critically endangered mountain gorillas. Similar in merit, Salonga protects several endemic endangered species and covers a significant part of the Congo Basin, the world’s second-largest rainforest after the Amazon. Allowing drilling in these parks produces nothing positive; large amounts of carbon dioxide will be released into the atmosphere; biodiversity in the area will be lost; endangered species will be put at significant risk; the livelihoods of thousands of traditional farmers and fishermen who rely on unpolluted lands and water will be in peril. #FollowMe at @CristinaMittermier for more photography that helps mend the plight of our planet by sparking dialogues on conservation. #Wildlife #Endangered #Conservation #Gorilla #Oil #Nature

#Regram #RG @africanparksnetwork: Nkhotakota Wildlife Reserve has had a difficult past. Decades of poaching and lawlessness saw a previously productive 1,800 km2 reserve with 1,500 elephants in the 1990’s reduced to fewer than 100 individuals. Game animals were hunted out. Nkhotakota had become an empty Reserve. With wildlife practically gone, there was no reason to visit Nkhotakota, no revenue, no productivity, and little to no value for the surrounding communities. But African Parks had a different vision for the most extensive remaining wild landscape in Malawi, one that included bringing it back to life. Upon assuming management in 2015, we immediately began preparing Nkhotakota for one of the world’s largest wildlife translocations. By August 2017, over a two-year period, the park received almost 500 elephants and 2,000 other animals. Poaching has been dramatically reduced through the presence of a well-trained and equipped ranger team, tourism has begun to increase, and the birth of new calves born in the park from the 2016 translocated elephants has already been documented. Extreme measures were taken to restore this landscape, and it was an extraordinary collaboration between the Government of Malawi, our donors and the team in Nkhotakota. It is early days, but in only two short years, already this park symbolises possibility and what nature can do with our help if only given the chance.

#Regram #RG @rainforestalliance: Bees are nature's unsung heroes. 🐝 Not only is their honey delicious and medicinal, but their pollinating prowess makes them essential to the circle of life. In fact, about 75% of the world's food crops depend on bees and other pollinators. Conventional agriculture practices—including the overuse of agrochemicals and habitat destruction—are killing off bee populations around the world, bringing us closer to the brink of a pollination crisis. Yet there is reason for hope; sustainable farming methods used on Rainforest Alliance Certified farms support the biodiversity that is essential to bees, and to humans too. For communities we work with in Guatemala's Petén region, honey production provides an economic alternative, beyond sustainable timber harvesting, that allows them to earn money and conserve their forests at the same time.

#Regram #RG @africanparksnetwork: Nature is being restored across the 15 parks we currently manage across Africa. Our 2017 Annual Report features the range of interventions currently underway, from extreme species translocations and reintroductions to providing security to create safer spaces for both humans and wildlife. Over the next few weeks, we will be sharing the stories of these remarkable parks, starting with the first park we assumed management of in 2003, and one of our greatest conservation successes. Over just 14 years, Majete has transformed from a once-empty forest with no employment or tourism and only a few remaining antelope within its perimeter, to a productive and flourishing haven for Africa's most iconic wildlife, generating revenue and benefits for local communities. Decades of lawlessness and poaching had seen the reserve’s wildlife completely eradicated by the 1990s. This all changed in 2003, when African Parks assumed management of Majete, the first park to enter our portfolio. We immediately began to revive the park through a series of species reintroductions. Today, Majete is flourishing, so much so that wildlife is being moved to populate other parks and private reserves within the country. We've maintained a 14-year track record of zero poaching of rhinos and elephants since their introduction; and tourism has increased 14 percent from last year, with over 9,000 visitors, half of whom were Malawian nationals bringing in over US$550,000 to the reserve and communities. Majete is a tale of a park rising from the ashes – living proof of how a park deemed to be a wasteland can be revived and restored and serve as a life-source for wildlife and humans alike.

#Regram #RG @amazonfrontlines: For Waorani women living along the Via Maxus oil road in Yasuni National Park, the day begins at the crack of dawn, young children in tow and empty buckets in hand, as they wait in the morning mist for the oil company bus that will take them 1 hour up the road to the oil station. There, the company fills their buckets with potable water and the women haul the heavy buckets home. This sequence is repeated again in the afternoon. Every day. These women can no longer collect drinking water from nearby streams, as oil companies polluted the streams over the last three decades. ⠀ ⠀ Now, we are working alongside Waorani technicians to install rainwater catchment systems that will provide these families with filtered drinking water right next to their homes, improving families' health and reducing their dependency on the oil company. ⠀ ⠀ Interested in supporting this vital work? Follow the link in our bio today to help build solutions to oil pollution in the Amazon. ⠀ ⠀ #LessOilMoreWater #waoraniresistance

#Regram #RG @algore: It makes me happy when I see evidence that @ClimateReality trainings may be helping to empower inspiring young leaders to make positive change. At only 16 years of age, Climate Reality Leader @Jamie_s_Margolin is leading #ThisIsZeroHour, a youth climate movement helping activists and organizers to take concrete action to address the climate crisis. On July 21, the group will march in Washington, DC to push our leaders to act on climate. http://bit.ly/Zero-Hour

#Regram #RG @lionrecovery: The Niokolo-Kobo National Park holds the last remaining population of lions in Senegal with less than 100 lions. Although the species is at dire risk of going extinct in the country, there is hope. With elevated management and law enforcement presence in Niokolo-Koba, the park has the potential of maintaining a population of hundreds of lions. @pantheracats, a grantee of LRF, is working to establish a 656 square mile secure zone—slightly larger than the size of Hong Kong—in the park with plans to gradually expand this zone. #lions #big cats #lionrecovery #wildlifeconservation Photo Credit: Susan McConnell
