MICROBIOLOGY — BIRD HABITAT LOSS — More than 250 bird species will benefit from a recent expansion of the Tanagers Reserve in Colombia, a country with more avian species than any other country in the world — PLANET EARTH MACRO WORLD group

PLANET EARTH MACRO WORLD has over 1,500 members and

over 84,000 photos and videos. 

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.

GREENPEACE — OUR MISSION — PLANET EARTH MACRO WORLD group

 

PLANET EARTH MACRO WORLD has over 1,500 members and over 85,000 photos and videos. 

GREENPEACE

Our mission: Greenpeace is the leading independent campaigning organization that uses peaceful protest and creative communication to expose global environmental problems and promote solutions that are essential to a green and peaceful future.

“We ‘bear witness’ to environmental destruction in a peaceful, non-violent manner. We use non-violent confrontation to raise the level and quality of public debate. In exposing threats to the environment and finding solutions we have no permanent allies or adversaries. We ensure our financial independence from political or commercial interests.”
Annie Leonard, Greenpeace USA Executive Director

Our vision

Fossil fuel companies will fight tooth and nail to keep us locked to the path that gives them a few more years of profit – the path that sends us careening off a cliff. We must fight equally hard – harder – to grab the opportunity to take control of our own destiny. It may be our last chance.

We are the ones we have been waiting for. We are the generation that goes beyond coal and oil.
