Let's create the biggest sanctuary on Earth

More and more people within and outside of the tuna industry are finally realizing that their business depends on sustaining fish populations. To truly transform an industry riddled with ocean destruction and labor abuse, Thai Union and its global brands like Chicken of the Sea must stand up and fight for real reform in the industry.

They must stop using poorly regulated and destructive fishing methods that needlessly kill vulnerable marine wildlife. No one wants to buy tuna with a side of sea turtle or shark.

BIRD OF THE WEEK — ROYAL SUNANGEL — PLANET EARTH BIRD WORLD group

PLANET EARTH BIRD WORLD has over 1,400 members and over 82,000 photos and videos.

BIRD OF THE WEEK

ROYAL SUNANGEL

SCIENTIFIC NAME: Heliangelus regalis 
POPULATION: 3,500-15,000 individuals 
IUCN STATUS: Endangered
TREND: Decreasing
HABITAT: Ridgetops adjacent to stunted forests on poor, sandy soils.

In the right lighting, a male Royal Sunangel is a striking sight, with plumage of deep, shimmering violet-blue and a long, forked tail. Like the Rainbow-bearded Thornbill and Glittering Starfrontlet, it needs direct light to really shine; low light makes these avian gems seem dark and dull-colored.

This regal species is known only from a handful of sites in northern Peru and southern Ecuador. Habitat loss from agriculture, mining operations, and road building are the biggest threats within its small, already-fragmented range.

BIRD OF THE WEEK — HAIRY WOODPECKER — PLANET EARTH BIRD WORLD group

PLANET EARTH BIRD WORLD group has over 1,400 members and over 82,000 photos and videos.

BIRD OF THE WEEK

HAIRY WOODPECKER

SCIENTIFIC NAME: Picoides villosus 
POPULATION: 8.5 million
TREND: Decreasing
HABITAT: Mature deciduous and coniferous forests.

The Hairy Woodpecker gets its name from the long, thread-like white feathers that run down the middle of its black back. This species looks very much like its closely related cousin, the Downy Woodpecker, but has a heftier bill. It’s also larger, measuring 9 to 10 inches in length — about the same size as Brazil’s rare Kaempfer’s Woodpecker.

Hairy Woodpecker populations are declining as a result of habitat loss, particularly of older forests. Like Eastern Bluebird, it competes with introduced species such as European Starling for nest holes.
