NTCA opposes plan to subsume under bigger wildlife body 11.9.2017 DNA: Wide Angle
The National Tiger Conservation Authority (NTCA) has strongly opposed a proposal to subsume itself and its flagship Project Tiger scheme under the ambit of an overarching National Wildlife Conservation Authority (NWCA) aimed at conservation of the habitats of all animals. An evaluation committee of the Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change (MoEF&CC) had recommended the idea of NWCA last year in a report on the performance of 12 Plan schemes. Following NTCA's opposition to the proposal, the ministry has currently shelved the plan, top officials said. Following a review of NTCA's fund allocation, habitat and conservation issues, the ministry's evaluation committee, headed by senior economic adviser Anandi Subramanian, had recommended that NTCA should be renamed NWCA to widen its scope and include all wildlife and habitat conservation schemes under it. "Such convergence will avoid pitfalls associated with the current delineation of activities under each scheme," the evaluation committee had ...

Elephant population study: 27,312 elephants across 23 states 13.8.2017 DNA: Urban Tales
There are 27,312 elephants across 23 states in the country, a preliminary assessment of the first-ever All India Synchronised Asian Elephant Population Estimation revealed. The elephant population is concentrated largely in the Southern region and Northeast region, making up for over 22,000 elephants. Karnataka alone is home to 6,049 pachyderms, the highest in any state. Minister for Environment, Forest and Climate Change Dr Harsh Vardhan released the preliminary results on Saturday, World Elephant Day. The first cut estimate of elephant population is based only on direct count method, which involves direct sighting and counting of elephants in sample grid blocks, officials associated with the exercise said. Finer details on densities in specific habitats and regions are awaited in the final report. Though the estimation exercise is to undergo complete analysis of statistics, the preliminary numbers are lesser by 3,000 compared to the 2012 estimation. The 2012 estimation had found out that there were a ...

Fossil site shows impact of early Jurassic's low oxygen oceans 16.7.2017 DNA: Money
Scientists, using a combination of fossils and chemical markers, have found that a period of low ocean-oxygen globally caused the Early Jurassic marine ecosystem to collapse, shrinking diversity to just a few species. The study, led by Rowan Martindale from the University of Texas at Austin in the US, zeroes in on a recently discovered fossil site in Canada located at Ya Ha Tinda Ranch near Banff National Park in southwest Alberta. The site records fossils of organisms that lived about 183 million years ago during the Early Jurassic in a shallow sea that once covered the region. The fossil site broadens the scientific record of the Toarcian Oceanic Anoxic Event, a period of low oxygen in shallow ocean waters which is hypothesised to be triggered by massive volcanic eruptions. The Oceanic Anoxic Event was identified at this site by the geochemical record preserved in the rocks. The oxygen level of the surrounding environment during the Early Jurassic influences the type and amount of carbon preserved in ...
