GREENPEACE

Together we protect the Earth’s ability to sustain life. We challenge the power of big polluters and corporate influence over governments. 

We resist those who seek to trap us in old destructive patterns. And we work together to transform the ways we feed and fuel our world to ones that work with nature, and not against it.

Tanagers and Pygmy-Owls

This area contains one of the highest concentrations of range-restricted species in the world. No fewer than 60 endemic species depend on the region’s wet forests. Among the birds recorded at the Tanagers Reserve are globally threatened species such as the Choco Vireo and Gold-ringed Tanager, both Endangered;  and the Cloud-forest Pygmy-owl, Black-and-gold Tanager, and Giant Antpitta, all of which are Vulnerable.

Golden-winged Warblers are specialists, requiring “young,” or early-successional, forests for breeding. Once their young leave the nest, the birds need mature forests for foraging nearby.

Golden-winged Warblers also suffer from competition and hybridization with Blue-winged Warblers; parasitism by cowbirds, which lay their eggs in the warbler’s nests; and loss of wintering habitat in Latin America.

How Fracking Has Changed One Woman’s Life:

Tachia Sandoval moved to Las Animas County, Colorado to find peace and beauty for her and her many animals. Then the fracking started.

A Must See Video.

 She came from Albuquerque to Las Animas County, Colorado in the 1990s, getting away from decades in the city to live on the land and get back to her country roots. She found a beautiful piece of land with a modest house that she made into the home of her dreams, a place for her and her many animals to roam, and some space to spend more time making the art and jewelry that give her life balance.

BIRD OF THE WEEK — ARARIPE MANAKIN — Araripe Manakin Conservation Project is about biodiversity, natural resources conservation, and the importance of environmental sustainability — PLANET EARTH BIRD WORLD group

PLANET EARTH BIRD WORLD has over 1,500 members and over 99,000 photos and videos. 

ABC

SCIENTIFIC NAME: Antilophia bokermanni
POPULATION: About 800 adults
IUCN STATUS: Critically Endangered
TREND: Decreasing
HABITAT: Lower and middle levels of tall, humid forest, with an abundance of vines.

The Araripe Manakin’s Critically Endangered status, which has led to its listing as an Alliance for Zero Extinction (AZE) species, has also focused attention on the importance of conserving its unique habitat. This habitat determines not only this bird’s continued survival but also the quality of life for thousands of people living in this largely impoverished region of northeastern Brazil.

Araripe Manakin, Ciro Albano

Both bird and habitat are threatened by the clearing of forests for farming, cattle, and home-building.
