United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) — Venezuelan refugees and migrants entering Peru — PLANET EARTH MACRO WORLD group

PLANET EARTH MACRO WORLD has over 1,500 members and over 86,000 photos and videos.

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 — Māui and Hector’s dolphin proposals not fit for extinction crisis world’s rarest dolphin species — BIRD OF THE WEEK –CANYON WREN — PLANET EARTH BIRD WORLD group

GREENPEACE NEW ZEALAND

Māui and Hector’s dolphin proposals not fit for extinction crisis.

Greenpeace

We must ban all gill netting and trawling from Māui habitat out to 100 metres immediately, but why aren’t the same protections being offered for Hector’s dolphins?  We know they are dying by the dozen in fishing nets but there is no equivalent proposal to stop those methods in Hector’s habitat.

BIRD OF THE WEEK

CANYON WREN

SCIENTIFIC NAME: Catherpes mexicanus 
POPULATION: 310,000
TREND: Stable 
HABITAT: Rocky outcrops, cliffs, and canyons.

Male Canyon Wrens songs are composed of clear, descending notes – almost sounding as if the bird is tumbling headfirst into a chasm. Chances are good that a Canyon Wren that’s singing persistently and acting territorial is a male. The female sings much less frequently, usually in response to a male’s song; her song is buzzy and ascending.

Many think this species’ tumbling, echoing notes form one of the West’s most beautiful bird songs. Both males and females sing, although their tunes sound a bit different.

CACTUS WREN

SCIENTIFIC NAME: Campylorhynchus brunneicapillus
POPULATION: 3.1 million in United States; Mexican population likely as large.
TREND: Decreasing
HABITAT: Resident in desert and arid scrublands from the southwestern United States to central Mexico.

The Cactus Wren is the largest wren found in the United States — about the size of a Spotted Towhee. Its curious nature and loud, chattering calls make this bird one of the most well-known species of the southwestern desert.

The Cactus Wren’s genus name Campylorhynchus derives from the Greek words for “curved beak.” Its species name brunneicapillus is formed from the Latin words for “brown” and “hair,” referring to this bird’s brown cap and back.
