BIRD CONSERVATION — Will Federal Policies Doom the Sage-Grouse to Extinction? — PLANET EARTH URBAN LANDSCAPES group

All PLANET EARTH groups supports:

PLANET EARTH URBAN LANDSCAPES has 1,000 members and over 41,000 photos and videos.

Wildlife experts concluded in 2015 that the Greater Sage-Grouse, an iconic bird of the West, did not require listing under the Endangered Species Act (ESA), thanks to then-new federal management plans with added conservation requirements. Many conservation groups, including American Bird Conservancy, supported the monumental process leading up to these plansand the decision not to list this species under these circumstances.

As it turned out, had the beleaguered bird been listed in 2015, we wouldn’t now be watching years of effort to save the Greater Sage-Grouse be washed away almost overnight. The many promises to conserve the grouse and its habitat are now purposefully being abandoned as the federal agencies are on the verge of finalizing new plans that remove essential safeguards.

PLANET EARTH URBAN LANDSCAPES has over 1,000 members and over 41,000 photos and videos. 

PLASTIC FREE NEW ZEALAND

Let’s end plastic pollution in Aotearoa

Be part of the movement to end the plastic crisis in New Zealand. From banning our plastic waste being exported out of sight, to pushing the Government to come up with a real plan for this problem – there are heaps of things you can do to get involved in the campaign.

A MUST SEE VIDEO PLEASE CK. IT OUT

Sign on now to get the Government to adopt a national strategy to eliminate plastic pollution in Aotearoa New Zealand.

The world is in a plastic pollution crisis. In New Zealand and globally, our oceans have become choked with single use plastics such as bags, bottles, straws and other packaging. These items – used for just a tiny window of time on land – go on to wreak havoc in the marine environment, putting our precious ocean life at risk.

JOIN THE MOVEMENT

NIGHT PHOTOGRAPHY — Hundreds of bird species are on a track toward extinction. If these species blink out, we’ll have just one species to blame: ours. — PLANET EARTH OUR HOME group

No Bird Extinctions Allowed

The situation of the Wood Thrush is dire, but 91 other bird species are much worse off. These are the Alliance for Zero Extinction bird species of the Americas —those found only in a single site and surviving on the edge.

Take Stresemann’s Bristlefront of Brazil: This unique, burrow-nesting species numbers fewer than 15 individuals. Hawai’i’s Maui Parrotbill has as few as 500 surviving members.
