HAWAII IS THE BIRD EXTINCTION CAPITAL OF THE WORLD — PLANET EARTH LANDSCAPES group

All PLANET EARTH groups supports:

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

PLANET EARTH LANDSCAPES has over 7,000 members and over 287,000 photos and videos. 

Contest — Farmland

Since humans arrived, 95 of 142 bird species found nowhere else have become extinct on Hawaii. Thirty-three of Hawaii’s remaining 44 endemic birds are listed under the Endangered Species Act; ten of those have not been seen for decades and are likely extinct.

AKIKIKI A BIRD IN NEED

 ABC’s Hawaii Program has made the conservation of the ‘Akikiki and other forest birds one of its top priorities.

Troubled Times on the Hawaiian Islands:

Mosquito-borne diseases such as avian malaria and avian pox have decimated ‘Akikiki populations. The problem may worsen, as climate change could continue to raise the elevation where mosquitoes can live, further shrinking this bird’s habitat.

RISE OF THE INTERIOR LEAST TERN — PLANET EARTH LANDSCAPES group

PLANET EARTH LANDSCAPES has over 7,000 members and over 292,000 photos and videos.

Contest — Mountains

The Interior Least Tern, once considered rare, may soon be taken off the Endangered Species list, thanks to a partnership of ABC, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS).

The success is in part due to management techniques that keep predators off nesting sandbars on the Lower Mississippi River.

It’s one thing to talk about the plastics pollution crisis, but witnessing it first-hand, standing on it, smelling it, and talking to the communities that have to live next to it, is indescribable.

While corporations talk, heroes like Froilan Grate and Merci Ferrer are working every day to tackle the plastic pollution crisis with real solutions in the Philippines. I am grateful to have the opportunity to work alongside them as partners in the #BreakFreeFromPlastic movement.
