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.

Greenpeace is calling on the Government to follow the lead of the UK and declare a climate and environment emergency, after history making scenes in UK Parliament this morning saw MPs pass a motion to make the country the first in the world to do so.

It comes on the back of waves of climate protests that have hit the UK, which include hundreds of thousands of students going on strike from school, and thousands of people being arrested due to mass occupations as part of the Extinction Rebellion movement.

Scotland and Wales have also declared a climate emergency following protests there.

GREENPEACE — SUCCESS! TRADER JOE’S WILL CUT 1 MILLION POUNDS OF PLASTIC FROM ITS STORES — PLANET EARTH IN BLACK AND WHITE group

Contest — Reflections on Water

Good news! People power is making a difference on plastic pollution! Trader Joe’s is listening to YOUR concerns and announced a plan to eliminate 1 million pounds of single-use plastic from its stores in 2019!

Plastic pollution is destroying our oceans. It’s harming turtles, whales, fish, and every part of the ocean food chain. There are already over 5 trillion pieces of plastic in our oceans — and the equivalent of one garbage truck worth of plastic enters the oceans every minute.

In light of UNHCR’s Global Compact for Refugees many international communities are already taking long-term measures to improve livelihoods and infrastructures, giving new momentum to the international cooperation in refugee and migration policy.

UNHCR is distributing 200,000 clean-burning cookstoves in Bangladesh, as a cleaner, greener and safer option for refugees. 

A move from firewood to liquefied petroleum gas for cooking benefits health, eases pressure on the environment and avoids hazardous trips into the forest.

Cities like Jakarta are playing a growing role in refugee inclusion. Of the world’s 25.4 million refugees, around 60 per cent live out of camps and in cities and urban areas across Asia, the Americas, Europe, the Middle East and Africa.

Mayors, local authorities, social enterprises and citizen groups in these Cities of Light – from Sao Paulo to Vienna, Erbil and Kigali – are on the frontlines of the global refugee response, fostering social cohesion, and protecting and assisting the forcibly displaced in their midst.

The training opportunities on offer are a lifeline for refugees. Less than 14,000 refugees, about half of them from Afghanistan, are living in Indonesia – one of the world’s most populous countries. While the country is generously hosting these refugees until longer-term solutions can be identified, they do not have the legal right to work, and it is difficult for them to attend university.

With resettlement opportunities dwindling and overall funding becoming increasingly unpredictable, UNHCR is looking at new ways to support refugees in Indonesia be more self-sufficient and ready to seize the moment.
