11 People With Extraordinary Power Over the Future of One Threatened Species

Why are Woodland Caribou so special?

Woodland Caribou are an iconic species that hold national significance for many Canadians, even being shown on the 25-cent coin.  They have adapted to harsh winter weather, have large hooves that act like snowshoes, and are able to survive largely on lichen – a ground organism made up of fungus and algae. They require large tracts of undisturbed natural forest to survive; and because of this, they are often seen as an indicator species for the health of the entire boreal forest. As logging and other industrial activities have further and further disturbed the forest, Woodland Caribou have been suffering.

Many will not know much about the Woodland Caribou, and only a very few will have seen this animal in person. But this unique member of the deer family, found in Canada’s boreal forest, is a remarkable animal and it is threatened with extinction, while a small group of powerful people have enormous influence over its fate.

AMERICAN BIRD CONSERVANCY — STEEPEST POPULATION DEClINES OF ANY SONG BIRD — GOLDEN-WINGED WARBLER — PLANET EARTH BUTTERFLIES, BEES, BUGS, AND INSECTS group

PLANET EARTH BUTTERFLIES, BEES, BUGS, AND INSECTS has over 3,900 members and over 111,000 photos and videos.

The Golden-winged Warbler is a dynamo, practically buzzing with activity as it moves through the trees. It also undertakes an amazing migration, traveling from its breeding grounds in the northeastern United States to wintering areas in Central and South America.

The species is notable for another reason: It has suffered one of the steepest population declines of any songbird. Since 1966, the species has been reduced by 66 percent, mostly because of habitat loss on its breeding grounds.

GREENPEACE — Greenpeace USA report shows pipeline company behind new anti-protest legislation in the US — MACRO WORLD — PLANET EARTH FLOWERS groups

PLANET EARTH FLOWERS group has over 2,000 members and over 80,000 photos.

Contest — Field of Flowers

Greenpeace USA report shows pipeline company behind new anti-protest legislation in the US.

Examples of ETP’s harmful corporate behavior include:

  • Damaging at least 380 sacred and cultural sites along the DAPL route, as reported by the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe

  • Working with private security firms like TigerSwan that deployed excessive force and military style counterterrorism tactics against Water Protectors while operating without a license in North Dakota

    Hiring TigerSwan again to suppress opposition to the Mariner East 2 Pipeline in Pennsylvania.

  • Aggressive use of eminent domain proceedings to seize private property

  • An egregious spill record that includes 527 incidents from 2002-2017 across ETP, Sunoco, and their subsidiaries’ pipelines, 67 of which contaminated water resources, hundreds of enforcement actions and fines of more than US $355 million since 2000.

  • Greenpeace USA’s report, “Too Far, Too Often: Energy Transfer Partners’ Corporate Behavior On Human Rights, Free Speech, and the Environment”, can be found on the Greenpeace USA website here.

BIRD OF THE WEEK — BENDIRE’S THRASHER — PLANET EARTH BIRD WORLD group

PLANET EARTH BIRD WORLD has over 1,400 members and over 90,000 photos and videos.

BIRD OF THE WEEK

SCIENTIFIC NAME: Toxostoma bendirei 
POPULATION: 90,000
TREND: Decreasing
HABITAT: Semi-open desert, dry grasslands and shrub; open woodland with scattered shrubs and trees.

The subtly colored Bendire’s Thrasher was not recognized as a species until 1872, when U.S. Army Lieutenant Charles Bendire collected a bird he didn’t recognize during a desert hike.

The arid Sonoran Desert region is home to most Bendire’s Thrashers. The species occupies year-round habitat in the extreme southwestern U.S. and Mexico, although some of the birds fly a short distance north to breed.
