When it comes to conserving the world’s oceans, we have work to do, a new study co-authored by @TheWCS in the journal One Earth says. 🌊🐢 According to the study, a full one-third of all marine species have less than 10% of their range protected. In addition, conserving a portion of habitat for all marine species would require an additional 3.2 million sq. miles of new conservation areas or an area about the size of Brazil. “The international community needs to rapidly increase the scale of marine conservation efforts if we are to maintain the health of our oceans,” said lead author Dr. Kendall Jones of WCS’s Conservation Solutions Program.

@presidenciaperu @martinvizcarraperu, creating the Nazca Ridge Marine Protected Area will be your powerful legacy and secure the future of the Peru’s ocean abundance for generations to come. Right now, less than 0.5% of Peru’s maritime territory is under legal protection, far from the 10% goal to which the government committed to achieve by this year. More than 1,000 species can be found in the Nazca Ridge, including blue whales, humpback whales, orcas, marine turtles, sharks and tuna. It is also home to deep-sea species such as cold-water corals and cod. By protecting this area, we can help maintain its abundance for generations to come and in turn, ensure neighboring fisheries thrive. Join @Oceana @oceana_peru in urging Peru’s President Vizcarra to create the Nazca Ridge Marine Protected Area and have his action celebrated at the UN Ocean Conference in June.

There are less than 500 Hirola in the world and those that are left are understandably skittish. Hirola are among the most elusive and least known antelopes in the world, which makes this photo by @global_wildlife_conservation’s @robindmoore especially rare. Their loss would represent the first extinction of a mammalian genus on mainland Africa in modern human history. @tsavotrust is among those groups making sure that this doesn’t happen on our watch by protecting and restoring the Hirola throughout its range in Kenya, including Tsavo East National Park, where this image was recently taken. #ExtinctionEndsHere #WildlifePhotography #ConservationOptimism #WildlifeConservation #EndExtinction #stopextinction

From the @guardian: Did you take part in Friday’s #FridaysForFuture strike? @gretathunberg made an appearance at the march in Bristol, UK. She addressed a crowd of about 25,000 people and praised the way climate activists in the city had managed to delay plans for a new airport. Protests were staged in other parts of the world, from Australia to Nigeria. Swipe right for highlights.

From @cnnclimate: Twice as much food as previously estimated is wasted, with people in wealthier countries wasting more, according to a recent study published in the journal PLOS One. Climate experts have identified food waste as one of the top sustainability problems worldwide. "Globally, if food waste could be represented as its own country, it would be the third largest greenhouse gas emitter, behind China and the US," according to the United Nations environment program. The UN estimates annual global food waste at 1.3 billion tons. (📸: Don Emmert/AFP/Getty Images)

Scientists are warning that the Great Barrier Reef could be heading for major coral bleaching. From The @Guardian: If high ocean temperatures in the region do not drop in the next two weeks, the reef is set for a third major coral bleaching outbreak in the space of five years. “We are down to the wire,” said Prof Terry Hughes, director of the ARC Centre of Excellence for Coral Reef Studies at James Cook University. Coral bleaching is a stress reaction caused when corals spend long periods in warmer than average water. Rising ocean temperatures are caused by increasing levels of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. In August 2019, the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority downgraded the reef’s longterm outlook from “poor” to “very poor” for the first time.

From the @UNEP: An invasive species of seaweed blighting tourist beaches in Mexico 🇲🇽 has become more aggressive due to #climatechange. The Sargassum weed is spreading, filling coastal waters and blocking sunlight essential to the growth of indigenous sea grasses and other plants. There is some good news though. Efforts are underway to hold back its advance and protect local ecosystems. #biodiversity2020 📷: @UNDP Mexico

From @cnnclimate: The Colorado River — which provides water to more than 40 million people from Denver to Los Angeles — has seen its flow dwindle by 20% compared with the last century, and scientists found that the climate crisis is mainly to blame. Without any cuts to emissions, the report says the river's discharge could shrink by between 19% and 31% by the middle of this century. "Without this river, American cities in the Southwest would dry up and blow away," said Brad Udall, a senior climate scientist at Colorado State University. "The science is crystal clear — we must reduce greenhouse gas emissions immediately." (📸: Rhona Wise/AFP/Getty Images)

From @yaleenvironment360: The economic and health costs of air pollution from burning fossil fuels totaled $2.9 trillion in 2018, calculated in the form of work absences, years of life lost, and premature deaths, according to a new report. The cost represents 3.3 percent of global GDP, or about $8 billion per day. The study, the first of its kind to quantify the global impacts of air pollution caused by burning fossil fuels, focused on the health impacts of three specific types of pollutants: Nitrogen dioxide, ozone, and fine particulate matter. It also included a regional breakdown of air pollution impacts. The researchers found that the most premature deaths from fossil fuel-related air pollution in 2018 were in mainland China (1.8 million), India (1 million), and the United States (230,000). As a result, those three countries also faced the highest annual costs: $900 billion in China, $600 billion in the U.S., and $150 billion in India.

From @cnnclimate: Polar bears rely on sea ice for nearly every aspect of their survival, and with ice beginning to melt earlier in the season, these animals are becoming thinner and having fewer cubs, according to a new study. Polar bears “are an icon of climate change, but they're also an early indicator of climate change because they are so dependent on sea ice,” writes Kristin Laidre, the study’s author and a professor at the University of Washington. Polar bears are considered a vulnerable species, one level below "endangered." Their future, the researchers write in their findings, depends on scientists' ability to predict how climate change will continue to impact the bears. (📸:Paul Souders/Getty Images)
