GREENPEACE — Amazon Reef and the Great Southern Reef — PLANET EARTH IN BLACK AND WHITE group

PLANET EARTH IN BLACK AND WHITE group has over 3,700 members and over 159,000 photos. 

Contest — Urban Landscapes

GREENPEACE

Two incredible, little-known reefs:

What do pink dolphins and leafy sea dragons have in common? They both benefit from two amazingly unique and little-known reefs on opposite sides of the world. Despite their geographic differences, the Amazon Reef and the Great Southern Reef have some striking similarities.

Scientists estimate the Amazon Reef’s size could span 56,000 km2 near the mouth of the Amazon River. Not bad for a reef system that nobody expected to be there! Because of its unique nature, the critters that live amongst the Amazon Reef are very precious. Between 2010 and 2014, scientists undertook three surveys of the area, and they believe they have found new species of fish and sponges.

BIRD OF THE WEEK — AMERICAN KESTREL — PLANET EARTH BIRD WORLD group

All PLANET EARTH groups supports:

Greenpeace * United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) * American Bird Conservancy

PLANET EARTH BIRD WORLD has over 1,500 members and over 107,000 photos and videos. 

BIRD OF THE WEEK

AMERICAN KESTREL

SCIENTIFIC NAME: Falco sparverius 
POPULATION: 4 million; 2.5 million in the United States and Canada 
TREND: Declining throughout North America.
HABITAT: Open habitats such as grasslands, meadows, and deserts, close to suitable trees for nesting and perching.

About the size of a Blue Jay, the American Kestrel is the smallest falcon in North America. Common nicknames for this scrappy little raptor include “sparrow hawk” (after the distantly related Eurasian Sparrowhawk), “grasshopper hawk,” for one of its favorite prey items, and “killy hawk,” due to its shrill call.

American Kestrels have two black spots, known as ocelli(“little eyes” in Latin), at the back of their heads. These false “eyes” help protect this little falcon from potential attackers sneaking up from the rear, whether they are predators or mobbing songbirds. American Kestrels also have two vertical black facial markings on each side of the head, in contrast to most other falcon species, which only have one.

GREENPEACE — NEW ZEALAND — TASMAN SEA –ANDREAS KAY PHOTOGRAPHY — PLANET EARTH MACRO WORLD group

PLANET EARTH MACRO WORLD has over 1,500 members and over 87,000 photos and videos.

Right now, the New Zealand bottom trawling fleet is setting out for yet another season of destruction. Each year, out of sight, the NZ fishing fleet go on the hunt for orange roughy using one of the most destructive forms of fishing ever devised. They have to be stopped, and one of the first things we need to do is make people aware of what’s really going on out there.

New Zealand trawl fleet to continue destruction of deep-sea ecosystems 
in South Pacific on the high seas.

New Zealand and Australia to adopt a deeply flawed regulation that will allow continued degradation and destruction of biologically rich and diverse ecosystems in the deep-sea from the Louisville Ridge in the western central South Pacific all the way across to the Tasman Sea.

We’ve stopped environmental crimes in the past and held companies to account. Together in our thousands, we’re forcing change and seeing results.

More and more people are saying ‘no’ to trashing the oceans, forests and climate – and standing up to protect our air, land and water from pollution.
