Stop Coal from Harming Our Wildlife
Stop coal mining from harming our wildlife and public lands at https://www.nwf.org/coal Your voice for vulnerable wildlife makes a difference! Coal mining involves huge risks and harm to wildlife—nearly 90% of the public lands mined for coal in Wyoming, Montana and North Dakota has been left with permanent habitat devastation. The federal Bureau of Land Management is finally reviewing its coal leasing program. Our government needs to protect wildlife and make meaningful investments in a clean energy future—not make things worse by continuing destructive coal mining on public lands.

Places That Will DISAPPEAR In Your Lifetime
Ever since the invention of the airplane, people have been traveling the world to experience historic landmarks for themselves. While tourism can help increase the economy of any country, it can also have serious impacts to the landmarks people are visting. If left unchecked, these landmarks will fade away into history, preventing any future generations from enjoying their beauty. These are 10 Places That Could Disappear in Your Lifetime Subscribe to Talltanic http://goo.gl/wgfvrr 3. Galapagos Islands These islands are incredibly popular due to their historical significance. Today, they are a popular destination spot for anyone wanting to relive a part of history for themselves. While these tourists help bring in money to the country of Ecuador, they are also having a negative impact on the island. The two significant threats facing the island are increasing tourists and a rise in invasive species. The massive amount of tourism to the island has increased the amount of fossil fuels and waste in the region. Since this waste is not being properly handled, it is beginning to impact the wildlife in the region resulting in a high rate of animal deaths. Another side effect of the tourism is the sudden increase of invasive species present in the island. Usually brought to the island on boats, some new rats and plants are starting to take over the islands and kill off existing wildlife. Private organizations are working to develop new “ecotourism” activities to help reduce the impact the massive amount of tourists have on the island. There is also work being done by the local government to help reduce the amount of illegal fishing taking place in the island. Even though a lot of work is being done to preserve the Galapagos Islands, there is still a ton of work left to make sure they do not disappear. 2. Great Wall of China Voted as one of the New Seven Wonders of the World, the Great Wall has always been an essential landmark to society. More than 10 million people visit the Great Wall every year to experience its enormous size and beauty. And while the wall has survived numerous wars, it is still under threat of disappearing today. The most substantial threat to the Great Wall comes from the massive amount of tourists that visit the landmark. Most tourists come to take photos on the wall and enjoy the scenery, while others are vandalizing the area. There are numerous examples of people carving their names into the stones that make up the wall, leaving a damaging mark on the historic wall. If vandalism wasn’t enough, recent illegal mining has caused a large section of the wall to collapse. Local preservation organizations in China have been working hard to protect this national landmark. They are trying to convince the government group that gives the mining licenses to companies, to simply restrict any mining near the wall to help protect its integrity. While this is slowly working, the preservationists are fighting against the ever-increasing economy that China is trying to grow any way it can. And while the preservationists are working to curb the vandalism by tourists with increased security and signs warning of the damage, the mining operations around the wall will be its real downfall. 1. Great Barrier Reef As one of the world’s seven natural wonders, the Great Barrier Reef is a fantastic piece of the world not seen anywhere else. Covering a massive 344,400 square kilometers the barrier reef is home to thousands of reefs and wildlife that thrive in its unique environment. For decades people have been working to protect the Great Barrier Reefs from disappearing, with various degrees of success. Since the corals that create the Great Barrier Reef are incredibly sensitive, they are disappearing at alarming rates. There are numerous factors to their disappearance, but two of the most significant ones are coral bleaching and the massive spike in industrialization of the region. Coral bleaching comes as an effect of global warming, where the oceans become too hot for the corals to survive resulting in a massive decline of living corals. Coupled with global warming the region is going through enormous growth. The increase of shipping traffic and dredging of the seafloor results in massive impacts to the wildlife living in the area. Since the Great Barrier Reef has been under threat for many years, there are numerous organizations working hard to preserve the delicate ecosystem of the region. Many of these organizations are working with the local government to introduce new rules about fishing and shipping traffic. With the combined effort of the world working to save this amazing landscape, there is a strong hope that the Great Barrier Reef won’t disappear for many generations.

Take a look at the impact of a sand mining operation on the environment and traffic. The sand plant projected for the El Monte Valley covers approximately 500 acres. Multiply what you see in this video by 50 and you may have the right image of what that would look like, sound like, feel like for our valley. We counted three to five trucks per minute entering and exiting the sand and gravel operation. The sand plant in Lakeside would use around 400 trucks per day which would greatly impact the traffic on Willow Rd., El Monte Rd., Mapleview Street, Highway 67, Lake Jennings Rd. and Highway I-8. Imagine the noise, the pollution and the high risk for accidents, especially around El Capitan high school area during drop off and pick up time. Hundreds of heavy trucks like the ones you'll see in this video will certainly damage the roads and will significantly raise the pollution level in our town. Moreover, it will greatly affect the local businesses, the quality of our lives and the public health. Please join our fight to stop the sand mining project in the El Monte Valley.

Conservation drones - Research Impact
Discover how drone technology is making a positive impact in wildlife and environmental conservation. Wildlife and environmental conservation is a challenge wherever it occurs, but particularly so in tropical developing countries. With rapid deforestation, poaching and the distribution of agriculture and industry, the need is high. Yet funds are scarce, distances vast and terrain often difficult, if not impossible to negotiate by foot or car. Research by University of Adelaide Associate Professor Lian Pin Koh, however, is providing a solution. For the past few years, Dr Koh, from the University’s Environment Institute, has been investigating the development and use of low-cost unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), or “drones”, for conservation-related applications. His work has not only proven the idea viable but, through his not-for-profit organisation ConservationDrones.org, is already making a significant difference to the effectiveness of conservation efforts worldwide.

Profit Over Grizzlies: Trump Admin Tries to Gut Endangered Species Act for Oil & Mining Interests
https://democracynow.org - The Trump administration has announced plans to gut the Endangered Species Act, ordering federal agencies to consider economic impacts before listing animals to be protected under the law. The newly proposed guidelines by the Interior Department would allow corporations involved in mining, drilling or other forms of extraction to proceed with projects that would otherwise be prohibited. The Trump administration’s proposed rules are among several recent attacks endangering the Endangered Species Act. Earlier this month, the Congressional Western Caucus introduced a package of nine bills to “modernize” the ESA. In introducing the legislation, Republican Congressmember Don Young of Alaska said, “The Endangered Species Act has been weaponized and misused by environmental groups for too long.” We speak to Kierán Suckling, executive director and a founder of the Center for Biological Diversity.

The damage of gravel mining in Missouri Creeks
Douglas County Missouri What was once a beautiful creek bed is now but a fading memory. This is photos of what it looked like then, what I came home to and the results of the damage two years later. This damage is on record with Missouri Army Corp. of Engineers and Missouri DNR. County Commissioners were confronted and I even had to file a report against a neighbor. The neighbors relative was bringing down a front loader. Then my neighbor came onto my property, had his vehicle in the creek bed, made lewd sexual comments toward me and stated that I was not being neighborly. Mr. H you can go to hell. A report against my neighbor was filed with the local sheriff's dept. which interestingly enough was not on file when I checked a month later. The county has the right to remove gravel from our creeks however in this case they do not have the right to come on private property to access it. It is up to land owners and the community to keep this from happening. The county thought by pushing gravel up against the high bank would solve the problem. It only makes things worse. It is unstable and when the new flood waters come the rock comes down with it along with more of the bank. This practice disrupts the natural water flow. Causes property damage and loss and kills off vegetation and wildlife in the waterways. NO MORE

Sustainable Coal Mining, Forests and Structural Reforms
BHOPAL, May 5: Managing Director MP State Forest Development Corporation Ravindra Nath Saxena has stressed the need for structural reforms and pitched for an extraordinary and radical approach to solve energy crisis and address issues relating to forest, environment, Wildlife Protection Act, Forest Rights Act and financial closure at pre-operational planning stage. Speaking exclusively to Lalit Shastri for Newsroom24x7, Mr.Saxena drew attention to the fact that there are 584 coal blocks in the country--almost all of them situated in forest areas. About 30-40 small coal blocks are located in Teak forests, rest--approximately 524 coal blocks--are situated in Sal forests, he pointed out. Forest (Conservation) Act, 1980 & Environment (Protection) Act, 1986 (EIA Notification, 2006) provides for assessment of the cases but parameters for assessment are not defined, he said adding artificial and complicated parameters have been adopted by Forest Appraisal Committee (FAC), Environment Appraisal Committee (EAC), Standing Committee of National Wildlife Board (NWB). Parameters change with the modification in composition of these committees and this constitutes the root cause of delay in according clearances. The target production (Integrated Energy Policy) of 2600 mt of coal by 2032 is not possible without development of indigenous coal resources. Mr. Saxena said and went on to explain that diversion with effective mitigation planning is possible (11.3% of opencast production cost). Alternate wildlife corridors [Section-38O(g) of Wildlife Protection Act] can be developed, fragmentation & porosity can be taken care-off. Indigenous coal is still much cheaper than imported coal. All these are factors under control of Government of India.

Habitat Connectivity: Wildlife safely navigating roads in Washington State using highway structures
This series of short clips shows wild animals utilizing highway structures to cross Washington State highways safely. Bridges and culverts provide a safe crossing opportunity beneath the highway, and structures such as “jumpouts” act as escape ramps that give animals trapped inside fenced sections of road a place to exit. Look for the family of four cougars around the 0:44-second mark demonstrating how to use a jumpout. Together, these features reduce wildlife-vehicle collisions and increase habitat connectivity. Using remote cameras, we learn about wildlife behavior and how readily wild animals will choose to go safely under a road rather than crossing lanes that carry oncoming traffic. We also learn what type and size of structures that individual species are willing to use—information that is crucial if effective wildlife crossing structures are to be built in the future. Including crossing opportunities in priority locations of the highway system can make our roads safer for both wildlife and humans.

Illegal Mining In Peru Destroying Amazon Rainforest Part II
Illegal gold miners in Peru are destroying thousands of hectares of the Amazon forest, home to some of the world's most important biodiversity. Biologists are working to save wildlife in the area, as their habitats are destroyed or endangered by the gold diggers. At the same time, stopping the mining is presenting a tough challenge for the government. In the final instalment of a three-part series, Al Jazeera's Mariana Sanchez reports from Madre de Dios in Peru.
