#Regram RG @natgeo: Photo by Ami Vitale @amivitale | On Monday, @UnitedNations released the Global Assessment Report on Biodiversity and Ecosystems. It states clearly that our human activity is taking down one million plants and animals, causing the sixth extinction event on this planet. It’s happening at an incredibly fast and accelerating rate. A million beautiful, ancient creatures like Sudan might breathe their last breath in our lifetime (here, in his final moments, Sudan was comforted by dedicated @olpejeta keeper Zacharia Mutai). Witnessing the last of anything die is something I never want to do again. Witnessing it a million times over may be more than my heart can stand and may be more than our fragile ecosystem can bear. Nature needs us now. Support and engage @conservationorg @nature_org @nature_africa and other orgs working to build a future in which we can live in harmony with nature. In order to protect prevent more heartbreaking deaths like this, we need to conserve 30% of the planet by 2030. @safariparkdvurkralove #rhinos #DontLetThemDisappear #stoppoaching #kenya
#Regram RG @theeconomist: Bleaching is bad for coral. It happens when heat-stressed polyps, the sessile animals that construct coral reefs, eject the photosynthetic algae which usually reside within them. These algae are symbionts, providing nutrients to their hosts in return for shelter, so losing them is harmful to polyps and often results in their death. The higher temperatures brought about by global warming have therefore led to worries that more frequent episodes of bleaching might result in the loss of entire reefs.

#Regram RG @extinctionrebellion:🐝 On Sunday, @xr_families_london and friends marched from Trafalgar Square to Buckingham Palace to hand in letters to the Queen asking her to declare a Bee Rehabilitation Programme on all her land across the UK. Without bees we would be very hungry - they pollinate much of the crops and plants that produce our food. Thirty-five species of bees in the UK are facing extinction because of habitat-loss and pesticides. 🐝 #savethebees #extinctionrebellion xrfamilies Photo by @jeremyhutchison
For more than a decade, the threat of North America’s largest copper and gold mine has loomed over the headwaters of Bristol Bay, Alaska. This project would directly impact the world’s largest and greatest sockeye salmon run, putting in jeopardy thousands of American jobs, a 10,000 year cultural tradition of subsistence, and a huge sport fishing and tourism economy. Today we have another chance to ensure the Pebble Mine doesn't put this all at risk.

#Regram RG @cnn: For the first time since 1882, when the first coal-fired power plant started running in the UK, the country has gone coal-free for a full week, according to the National Grid Electricity System Operator. "While this is the first time this has happened, I predict it will become the new normal," said Fintan Slye, director of the ESO. "We believe that by 2025 we will be able to fully operate Great Britain's electricity system with zero carbon."

#Regram RG @greenmatters: Officials at the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service announced last week that they are considering adding giraffes to the endangered species list. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service announced that it was officially launching a detailed investigation to determine if giraffes should be named an endangered species. The International Union for Conservation of Nature labeled giraffes as "vulnerable" in 2016, and noted that giraffe populations had decreased by up to 40 percent over the past three decades.

#Regram RG @antonioguterres: Whenever I can, I stop for a moment to take in the view from my offices at @UnitedNations Headquarters in New York. Looking out at this vibrant and diverse city, I remember all the villages and towns the world over, where I've heard people express the same, simple hope -- for a life of dignity and security on a planet that is thriving. The UN belongs to those people -- to all of you. That's why I'm happy to be here on @Instagram to give you a first-hand look at my job as Secretary-General and share what motivates me to strive for a better, more peaceful world for us all. 📷: UN Photo / Mark Garten #FirstPost #UnitedNations

#Regram RG @unenvironment: 🚨 A new report from @ipbes_ warns: Nature is declining globally at rates unprecedented in human history — and the rate of species extinctions is accelerating, with grave impacts on people around the world now likely. ⚠ 1,000,000 species are threatened with extinction, many within decades.🔺Transformative changes are needed to restore and protect nature. #ipbes7
#Regram RG @greenpeace: This week, thousands of Indigenous People gathered in Brasília, the capital of Brazil to to share experiences, traditional knowledge, support each other and, most importantly, demand the government protect their rights. Indigenous Peoples are the guardians of the forest, fighting to protect it from a greedy industry. We can’t afford more deforestation.

#Regram RG @guardian: Thousands of people around the world have been taking part in @ExtinctionRebellion's international "climate rebellion" week. Organisers say demonstrations were planned in 33 countries. In the UK, the movement has been criticised for being too white and privileged, but it has also drawn support in huge numbers, with 30,000 new backers or volunteers having offered their support to the environmental activist group since the week of action began. Here, activists from around the world tell us why they have taken part. Story: @jessie__mac
#Regram RG @pacificstand: Historically, the shoreline of Saint Lawrence Island is sheathed in sea ice that forms throughout the winter and melts in the summer, but the sea ice never formed completely in the winter and spring of 2018-2019, due to the warming climate. ▫️ This has created new challenges for the Yup’ik people, for whom subsistence hunting is a primary source of food and identity. The Yup'ik have been hunting and fishing the Bering Sea for thousands of years, with walrus being a staple of their diet. The walrus herds were decimated by whalers in the 1800s, but have since rebounded, only now they are newly threatened by the retreating sea ice, and the hunting season for walrus has grown shorter as well. ▫️ Photographer @kiliiiyuyan traveled to Saint Lawrence Island last spring to work with indigenous youth on an art therapy project to address suicide in their community.

#Regram RG @brutamerica: London's Natural History Museum was the site of a "die-in" protest by climate change activists, following the arrest of more than 1,000 activists in the week since protests first began in the city. The activists, from the group @extinctionrebellion, have staged protests at various sites around London with the goal of stopping what they call a "global climate crisis." #uk #London #protest #climate #climatechange #nature #environment #earthday #Brut #BrutAmerica #brutmoments

#Regram RG @sealegacy: Photo by @daisygilardini //The harp seal fur industry has declined drastically in the last 15 years, thanks to conservation campaigns around the world and income from sealing generated in Canada is at its lowest level since records have been kept. Thirty-five countries, including Russia, have enacted a ban on imported seal products. However, the Canadian government still supports the hunt for cultural and economic reasons in coastal communities.
#Regram RG @aljazeeraenglish: Fisherman Samwu Ndaye is a volunteer who every morning combs the beach of Ngor, a 400-year-old village on Africa's western most tip in the Senegalese capital Dakar, to clean up the plastic waste that builds up there. Single-use plastic products of every kind litter the villages along Senegal's coastline along with other waste that gets washed up on the beach. ‘If we don't clean it, no one will,’ said Ndaye, who is one of a growing number of volunteers who dedicate their time to cleaning up what has rapidly become a modern scourge. The waters around Dakar are heavily polluted with plastic and ‘more arrives each day,’ according to the fisherman. The rapid growth of the West African country's population, especially in larger cities like Dakar, has led to a hike in the production of household waste.

#Regram RG @nytimes: It’s “break-up” season in Alaska — the end of safe travel on ice. This year, break-up has come too soon, creating new, sometimes deadly hazards and a host of practical problems. Alaskans depend on hard-frozen winters for transportation, and people traveling on frozen rivers by ATV or snowmobile are falling through; some have died. “The river is our highway,” said Mark Leary, who’s part of a team that builds an ice road each winter. “It’s everything to us.” But climate change is warming Alaska faster than any other state.

#Regram RG @iantmcallister: Highly intelligent, social and critical to maintaining ecosystem function for both flora and fauna, wolves continue to be managed as vermin by the BC government. Wolves like this coastal one have been found to be genetically distinct partly because they have evolved in an ocean influenced environment but also because they have not been persecuted to the extent that wolves across the rest of North America have. Imagine if every year someone came to planet earth and removed 30-50% of the human population - conservative estimates for wolf mortality where there are active cull and extermination programs occurring. It would not be long before we saw the loss of language groups, races, skin colour - we would become a homogeneous species lacking cultural and genetic diversity. Unfortunately, government wildlife managers do not recognize the importance of genetic diversity with wolves and as each evolutionary significant population is killed through hunting, trapping and other cull programs an irreplaceable living part of this planet is lost forever.

#Regram RG @unenvironment: 🚨Populations of Asian pangolins are estimated to have declined by up to 80% in the last 10 years. As they become harder to find, traders are increasingly moving to Africa to meet the growing demand. More than 50,000 killed pangolins have been discovered in 2 seizures one week apart🚨. Pangolins, the world’s only scaly mammal, are solitary and nocturnal. They roll up into a ball when threatened - making them very easy for poachers to catch. In 10 years, over 1 million pangolins have been illegally taken from the wild due to demand in China 🇨🇳 and Viet Nam 🇻🇳. It is the most illegally trafficked mammal on the planet. Their meat is considered a delicacy, while their scales are used in traditional Chinese medicine as they are believed to treat a range of ailments from asthma to arthritis and difficulty with lactation. Double tap and share this with a friend 👥 to raise awareness and stop the demand for pangolin parts! 📷© Lisa Hywood #wildforlife
