GREENPEACE — MEET THE GREAT NORTHERN FOREST — PLANET EARTH LANDSCAPES groups

PLANET EARTH LANDSCAPES has over 5,700 members and over 184,000 photos and videos. 

This enormous green belt keeps the earth breathing. But only 3% is protected.

Scientists see The Great Northern Forest as the boreal forest ecosystem – the global coniferous forest blanketing the northern hemisphere. The Russians traditionally call it “Taiga”. If you could look at the planet from above, it is the green crown circling the Arctic, the enormous green belt that keeps the earth breathing.

Animals have tricks for surviving the dramatic temperature changes. Many animals in the Great Northern Forest change color based on the seasons: the Snowshoe Hare and Mountain Hare for instance are white during winter months and brown in the summer. Also the Least Weasel and even the Peary Caribou turn white in winter. The Siberian Salamander can survive temperatures of -35 degrees. It does this by replacing its water with natural ‘antifreeze’ chemicals. Not recommended for humans though, and alcohol won’t help.

BIRD OF THE WEEK — SEVEN-COLORED TANAGER — PLANET EARTH BIRD WORLD group

Please stop by and subscribe to PLANET EARTH NEWSLETTER blog. Same great blog with a different viewing experience. 

PLANET EARTH BIRD WORLD has over 1,100 members and over 56,000 photos and videos. 

Contest #2 — Baby Birds

SCIENTIFIC NAME: Tangara fastuosa
POPULATION: 2,500-9,999
TREND: Decreasing
HABITAT: Humid forests and second-growth areas of northeast Brazil

The Seven-colored Tanager is decked out in eye-catching shades of turquoise, green, blue, yellow, and orange. It resembles the Green-headed Tanager, a species confusingly known as the Seven-colored Tanager (saíra-sete-cores) in Portuguese.

The Seven-colored Tanager’s favored habitat is humid Atlantic coastal forests in northeastern Brazil, but this habitat has become quite rare. Eighty-five percent of the original Atlantic Forest has been cleared, and what remains exists only in small fragments.
