The latest from @virunganationalpark: 🇨🇩🦍🎉New year, new baby! 🦍🎉🇨🇩 We’re so excited to announce Virunga’s first mountain gorilla birth of 2020. Sub-adult female Seminane gave birth to her very first offspring, a baby girl, earlier this week. 8 year old Seminane is part of the Munyanga group and this new birth marks her passage from sub-adult female to adult female. The new addition makes 10 individuals for the Munyanga family. #virunga #virunganationalpark #mountaingorilla #babygorilla #conservation #congo #drcongo #visitvirunga

🐢 News via The @WashingtonPost: The Española giant tortoise was once considered beyond saving. After decades in decline, just over a dozen were left on the Galapagos island by the 1970s, most of them female. Their numbers were so sparse that some probably had gone decades without encountering another tortoise. Extinction seemed inevitable. Then Diego came along. Flown in from the San Diego Zoo in 1976, the extremely sexually active tortoise went on to father upward of 800 offspring. His considerable effort helped his species, known scientifically as Chelonoidis hoodensis, rebound to a population of 2,000. It also turned him into a star, his sexual prowess the subject of articles in newspapers across the globe. Now, the ancient tortoise is headed for retirement. Officials with the Galapagos National Park announced Friday that the breeding program has been so successful that it is being terminated. Diego, believed to be more than 100 years old, will be released from captivity and returned to the wild. Go to the link in the @washingtonpost bio to read more.

Shrubs and grasses are springing up around Mount Everest and across the Himalayas, one of the most rapidly heating regions of the planet. The impact on water supplies of the small but significant increase in vegetation is unknown but could increase flooding in the Hindu Kush Himalayan region, which supplies 1.4 billion people with water. The melting of Himalayan glaciers has doubled since the turn of the century and research has suggested that its ecosystems are highly vulnerable to climate-induced shifts in vegetation. Studies of increased vegetation in the Arctic found that they delivered a warming effect in the surrounding landscape, with the plants absorbing more light and warming the soil. But Dr Karen Anderson from the Environment and Sustainability Institute says more vegetation might not increase warming and flooding. A previous study in the Tibet region found that the water in the plants, that is evaporated through their leaf surface, became a cooling influence. (Via The @Guardian)

The catastrophic bushfire season we are currently experiencing in Australia is a clear example of the impacts of climate change playing out before our eyes. Climate change means hotter temperatures, changing rainfall patterns and periods of low rainfall that can dry out vegetation, and an increased chance of lightning strikes. These all combine to create more dangerous and longer-lasting fire seasons - and this is what we are seeing now. The 2019-20 fires are not normal. This is climate change writ large.

@action4ifaw’s koala detection dog Bear is trained to detect live koalas through the scent of their fur, which makes him an important asset in the response to #AustraliaBushfires.⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ @TysonTravel met Bear and his handler Rianna from @usc_detection_dogs to take a look inside @action4ifaw’s work in Australia.
