UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency, has sent extra teams to the border between Peru and Ecuador to support the authorities to deal with an unprecedented number of Venezuelan refugees and migrants entering Peru. 

Peruvian authorities announced new visa requirements for Venezuelans starting on Saturday 15 June. On Friday, over 8,000 Venezuelans crossed the border at Tumbes, the largest number ever recorded on a single day. Of them, 4,700 lodged asylum claims in Peru, also an unprecedented number. 

UNHCR calls on the international community to step up its support to countries like Colombia, Ecuador and Peru, that have been receiving the vast majority of the 4 million refugees and migrants from Venezuela, most of whom are in need of humanitarian assistance.

GREENPEACE — NEW ZEALAND — TASMAN SEA –ANDREAS KAY PHOTOGRAPHY — PLANET EARTH MACRO WORLD group

PLANET EARTH MACRO WORLD has over 1,500 members and over 88,000 photos and videos.

Right now, the New Zealand bottom trawling fleet is setting out for yet another season of destruction. Each year, out of sight, the NZ fishing fleet go on the hunt for orange roughy using one of the most destructive forms of fishing ever devised. They have to be stopped, and one of the first things we need to do is make people aware of what’s really going on out there.

New Zealand trawl fleet to continue destruction of deep-sea ecosystems 
in South Pacific on the high seas.

New Zealand and Australia to adopt a deeply flawed regulation that will allow continued degradation and destruction of biologically rich and diverse ecosystems in the deep-sea from the Louisville Ridge in the western central South Pacific all the way across to the Tasman Sea.

We’ve stopped environmental crimes in the past and held companies to account. Together in our thousands, we’re forcing change and seeing results.

More and more people are saying ‘no’ to trashing the oceans, forests and climate – and standing up to protect our air, land and water from pollution.

Following a four-day  Powershift: Young and Rising convergence, volunteers from PowerShift  an intersectionnal growing movement that gathered youth from all backgrounds across Canada – are marching today in a rally organized for climate justice.

Starting at Parliament Hill, the rally will benefit from the presence of  frontline land and water defenders, black and communities of colour as well as various social and environmental grassroots groups leaders who will make the opening speeches before setting out for the hour long march. This march yet another pressing expression of a growing young mobilization movement spreading wide across Canada to highlight the urgency of climate change, and how climate justice intersects with social and environmental justice.

Biodiversity loss: urgent need for forest, ocean protection and dietary change:

Paris, France – The UN’s biodiversity report warning of mass species loss due to human impacts must spark urgent action to protect the world’s forests and oceans and lead to sweeping change in agriculture and food production and consumption.

The global assessment report on biodiversity and ecosystem services from the Intergovernmental Panel on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (IPBES) warned that 1 million species are at risk of extinction, more than at any time in human history.
