MANGROVE HUMMINGBIRD

The species’ limited range and declining numbers have led the International Union for Conservation of Nature to classify the Mangrove Hummingbird as Endangered.

Birders and ecotourists can visit the Osa to see the Mangrove Hummingbird and other birds found nowhere else. Visit Conservation Birding to learn more.

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 — What Could Possibly Go Wrong with a Floating Nuclear Power Plant? — PLANET EARTH IN BLACK AND WHITE group

What could possibly go wrong?

There was a plaintive whine from the Russian nuclear regulator Rostechnadzor, but because of a hole in Russian nuclear law, inspectors still don’t have full access or a mandate to criticize the Lomonosov. Only a petition of twelve-thousand St.Petersburg citizens, questions in the city’s legislative assembly and major concerns from Baltic Sea countries about transporting two reactors filled with irradiated fuel, without its own propulsion, along their rocky coasts, caused Rosatom to use some common sense.

The ‘Akademik Lomonosov’ is to be the first of a fleet of floating nuclear power stations to be stationed in the Russian Arctic. Rosatom recently received the mandate to manage all shipping and development along the Northern Sea Route. These floating nuclear plants need to deliver the energy to dig for more climate-destroying fossil fuels.

If this development is not halted, the next nuclear catastrophe could well be a Chernobyl-on-ice or a Chernobyl-on-the-rocks.
