GREENPEACE

That environment of the unknown — and protecting it — was the inspiration behind the band Animal Collective’s latest album and video, Tangerine Reef. Created to coincide with the International Year of the Reef, the musicians tell how art can help inspire us to reckon with climate change before its too late.

A must see video, ck. it out.

The video for Tangerine Reef shows corals moving 10 times their natural speed, making them seem otherworldly but humanlike. Slimy appendages wriggle and feed neon, tessellating mouths. At times, they seem to smile. At other times, the images drift into patterns and abstraction.

There is still a lot we don’t know about corals: Scientists weren’t sure how they reproduced until 1981 and researchers are still learning the details about how they live, grow and respond to environmental stresses.

BIRD OF THE WEEK — ANDEAN COCK-OF-THE-ROCK — PLANET EARTH BIRD WORLD group

PLANET EARTH BIRD WORLD has over 1,500 members and over 101,000 photos and videos.

BIRD OF THE WEEK

ANDEAN COCK-OF-THE-ROCK

SCIENTIFIC NAME: Rupicola peruvianus 
POPULATION: Unknown 
TREND: Decreasing 
HABITAT: Subtropical and cloud forests of the Andes Mountains from Venezuela to Bolivia

The male Andean Cock-of-the-rock is an unmistakable sight, with brilliant red-orange plumage, black-and-white wings, and a large fan-like crest that almost completely obscures its bill. Known as tunki in Quechua, this cotinga is the national bird of Peru and is related to other distinctive tropical fruit-eaters such as the Banded Cotinga, Long-wattled Umbrellabird, and Bearded Bellbird.

Why is this bird called a”cock”? We can only guess that the male bird reminded early observers of a rooster. It’s also hard to imagine a bird much cockier than this one!

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.
