@unclimatechange: “The failure to consider the growing impacts of climate change will undermine our efforts at conflict prevention, peacemaking and sustaining peace, and risks trapping vulnerable countries in a vicious cycle of climate disaster and conflict”, Jenča said at a briefing to the security council. “It is no coincidence that seven of the 10 countries most vulnerable and least prepared to deal with climate change, host a peacekeeping operation or special political mission”, the Assistant Secretary-General for Europe, Central Asia and the Americas added. #ClimateEmergency #ClimateCrisis #ClimateChange

Since the beginning of the COVID-19 crisis, Indigenous peoples have called for an immediate suspension of resource extraction in the Amazon. In Ecuador, two major oil pipelines are on the brink of rupturing for the second time this year, poisoning rivers and Indigenous communities in one of the most biodiverse places on Earth. We can’t let this happen. Indigenous communities want an immediate shutdown of the pipeline and an end to oil company impunity. Let’s stand with them. As the pandemic and arson fires sweep across our planet’s greatest tropical forest, we, as a global movement, must stand with Indigenous communities on the frontlines, who are risking everything to save the Amazon and our climate. #StopAmazonExtraction #KeepItInTheGround @coica_amazonia_oficial @Conaie @Confeniae @Amazonfrontlines

Nearly 2 million Californians live in areas heavily affected by environmental pollution. 92% of Californians in these sacrifice zones are people of color. Neighborhood drilling is not only dangerous - it’s a form of environmental racism. Join me in standing with @VoicesCA & the @NRDC_org to #SupportAB345 and keep homes, schools, and hospitals 2,500 feet away from toxic oil and gas wells.

Today is International Golden Lion Tamarin Day. The recovery of these small Brazilian monkeys - from 200 individuals in the wild in the 1960s to 3,700 in recent years - is one of the world’s most celebrated wildlife comeback stories thanks to the international efforts of a large team of committed partners. In 2018, the population dropped for the first time since the ‘60s as a wave of yellow fever that began in humans in 2016 unexpectedly started to kill the endangered tamarins, reducing the population by 32%. Now conservationists from Save the Golden Lion Tamarin, @associacaomicoleaodourado, and partners like @global_wildlife_conservation are hoping to vaccinate the monkeys, using their knowledge and experience from the past few decades to increase the population yet again and to continue to conserve and restore their iconic home in Brazil’s Atlantic Forest.

Today is #WorldRangerDay. Wildlife rangers will be responsible for protecting 30% of the planet by 2030. That’s a big job, so it’s not surprising that rangers do a lot more than prevent poaching. They guide visitors. They fight fires. They are often the first to identify environmental problems. Most importantly, they help make conservation happen. With so many responsibilities, it’s also not surprising that there is no one type of ranger. Rangers are men, women, Indigenous People, volunteers, NGO workers, government staff and landowners. Let’s honor rangers today and beyond with the International Ranger Federation, and help to make sure they have the resources they need for every aspect of their jobs - because they protect us all: humans, animals and wild places.

From The @Guardian: Alarm over the discovery of hundreds of Chinese fishing vessels near the Galápagos Islands. The fleet was found just outside a protected zone, raising the prospect of damage to the marine ecosystem. About 260 ships are currently in international waters just outside a 188-mile wide exclusive economic zone around the island, but their presence has already raised the prospect of serious damage to the delicate marine ecosystem, said a former environment minister, Yolanda Kakabadse. “This fleet’s size and aggressiveness against marine species is a big threat to the balance of species in the Galápagos,” she told the Guardian. Kakabadse and an ex-mayor of Quito, Roque Sevilla, were on Monday put in charge of designing a “protection strategy” for the islands, which lie 563 miles west of the South American mainland. Chinese fishing vessels come every year to the seas around the Galápagos, which were declared a Unesco world heritage site in 1978, but this year’s fleet is one of the largest seen in recent years.

From the @NRDC_org: “As we move into a deeper public health crisis, we must remember: COVID-19, the climate crisis, and systemic racism intersect and disproportionately impact BIPOC communities. These overlapping social and environmental injustices were here before—and are exacerbated by COVID-19. They must be addressed within the response to this pandemic and thereafter. There is no climate justice without racial justice without economic justice.” ✊ You can learn more through the link in the NRDC's bio. 🌍

From The @Guardian: The first active leak of methane from the sea floor in Antarctica has been revealed by scientists. They also found that microbes that normally consume the gas before it reaches the atmosphere had only arrived in small numbers after five years, allowing the gas to escape. The release of methane from frozen underwater stores is one of the key tipping points that scientists are concerned about, which occur when a particular impact of global heating becomes unstoppable. Follow the link in their bio to read more about why the methane cycle is such a cause for concern.

From @wildaid: Breaking News! Vietnam’s Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc today issued a new directive with urgent and powerful measures to restrict #wildlifetrade and consumption, and reduce further pandemic risk. With immediate effect, the directive (29/CT-TTg) bans imports of live wild #animals and wildlife products, strictly eliminates any wildlife markets, and prohibits any hunting, transporting, slaughtering, selling, buying, storing, consuming, or advertising of wildlife, including online sales. “Vietnam’s government shows strong leadership with this comprehensive action and focus on stopping imports, closing all wildlife markets and prohibiting any consumption, buying, and advertising. These actions will help save many species while also protecting global health. We will work with our partners to help make this a success,” said John Baker, Chief Program Officer at WildAid. “This provides a great example to other members of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) on how to address the threat of the wildlife trade to economic security and public health.” In the next few weeks, CHANGE, WildAid, the Pangolin Crisis Fund, and other partner organizations will continue to carry out a series of activities that will promote the Prime Minister’s instructions, raise awareness, and ultimately change wildlife consumption behavior, especially around wildlife sold in markets and restaurants. Activities will include: producing videos and media messages, mobilizing business leaders, organizing wildlife journalism awards, training journalists in wildlife trade and consumption hot spots, and campaigning to remove wild meat from restaurant menus. At the same time, these conservation organizations will work with relevant authorities and assist with activities designed to strengthen law enforcement, helping to strictly enforce violations on wildlife trade and strengthen monitoring of wildlife farming activities, in an effort to ensure products are not laundered into trade. This is huge for both the protection of wildlife and ourselves. We must end the trade. #EndTheTrade#WhenTheBuyingStopsTheKillingCanToo#WorthMoreAlive Photo Credit: @paulhiltonphoto

Please help #SaveEboForest. #Repost @global_wildlife_conservation: President Paul Biya @PresidentPaulBiya of Cameroon: Please help #SaveEboForest by reconsidering your Government’s decree to move forward with plans to log the magnificent Ebo Forest. This would destroy the home of the world's only Chimpanzees that both forage for termites using stick tools and crack nuts using stone and wood tools, along with a small population of gorillas that may be a new subspecies, and one of only two remaining populations of Preuss's Red Colobus, a Critically Endangered monkey. Ebo Forest also makes up one half of a Key Biodiversity Area, making it a site of global importance to the planet's overall health and the persistence of biodiversity. Protecting Ebo Forest, on the other hand, would not only protect these species and improve the health of our planet as a whole, but could help generate significant revenue for the country from sustainable land use like marketing carbon stocks or conservation concessions.
