Barbary macaques – threatened and unique. 5.12.2018 The Earth Times Online Newspaper - Environment News
How can you describe the threats existing to species, both large and small? Using the highly-threatened primates, we can perhaps see how they have contrived to exist until the current time. Then we can better understand just how we can prevent factors simply wiping them from the face of the earth, often through ignorance, lack of care, prejudice and of course the universal profit motive. Conservation begins in our minds, but demands much more than that.

Lawmakers Want the EPA to Ignore Impacts of Pesticides on Endangered Species 19.4.2018 Truthout.com
According to the latest push by House Republicans, pesticides -- all of them -- are so safe there's no longer any need to bother asking experts to determine their harm to our most endangered species before approving them. It's not true, of course -- not even vaguely. It's such an outrageously anti-science statement it's laughable. But not surprisingly, that's what pesticide makers like Dow Chemical would have us believe. And now that's what Republicans in Congress would have us believe. This week some of the biggest agriculture and pesticide players in Washington, D.C. -- including Croplife and Dow Chemical -- succeeded in getting Republicans to  include a rider in the 2018 Farm Bill  that would exempt the Environmental Protection Agency's pesticide-registration program from the most important parts of the Endangered Species Act: The provisions requiring that a pesticide's harm to endangered species be assessed and addressed before it can be approved, and the provisions that prohibit a pesticide's ...

Facebook Is Profiting From Illegal Wildlife Traffickers 16.4.2018 Truthout.com
Help preserve a news source with integrity at its core: Donate to the independent media at Truthout. While Mark Zuckerberg was testifying before Congress about Facebook providing user information to  Cambridge Analytica , additional disturbing news about his company was making headlines. Facebook has been making a profit by selling ads on pages that are operated by illegal wildlife traffickers. The pages sell the body parts of endangered animals, according to a complaint filed with the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). That's right, Facebook has allegedly been making money off of the sellers of items like elephant ivory, rhino horns and tiger teeth -- in fact, an  Associated Press  article included a screen grab of a Facebook group page displaying buckets full of the teeth. According to the complaint, Facebook is violating its responsibilities as a publicly-traded company by knowingly profiting from the criminal trafficking of endangered species. The anonymous whistleblower complaint was filed ...

Woman Who Hates Endangered Species Act Will Be in Charge of Wildlife Policy 11.4.2018 Truthout - All Articles
If you're a fan of real journalism, now's the time to strengthen Truthout's mission. Help us keep publishing stories that expose government and corporate wrongdoing: Make a donation right now! As if endangered species didn't have enough to worry about, they're about to have a vocal opponent of animals and conservation overseeing their protection in the White House. Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke has  named Susan Combs  to serve as the acting assistant secretary of fish, wildlife and parks. To fully understand why Combs is such a terrible pick, take a look at her  history as a comptroller in Texas . In that role, she routinely went up against the US Fish and Wildlife Service when they tried to enforce portions of the Endangered Species Act in her state. She also successfully fought to keep the golden-cheeked warbler and the dune sagebrush lizard from being included on the endangered list. Combs made it her business to protect the oil industry and other corporations from the supposed drag of having to make ...

Indigenous and Rural Women Conserve Mother Earth and Empower Their Communities 7.3.2018 Truthout.com
Women's rights and gender equality are crucial for not just women, but also for their communities and the environment. Increasing women's leadership in natural resource management, for example, is not only beneficial for biodiversity but also increases livelihood opportunities for women, thus improving their ability to plan for their families and resulting in positive outcomes for their communities. On this International Women's Day, we bring you a photo essay about Indigenous and rural women and their innate connection to nature. Women's rights and gender equality are crucial for not just women, but also for their communities and the environment. Women play a key role in the conservation of biodiversity and forests.

Trump Budget Would Undo Gains From Conservation Programs on Farms and Ranches 19.2.2018 Truthout.com
Help preserve a news source with integrity at its core: Donate to the independent media at Truthout. Members of the House and Senate Agriculture Committees are starting to shape the  2018 farm bill  -- a comprehensive food and agriculture bill passed about every five years. Most observers associate the farm bill with food policy, but its conservation section is the single largest source of funding for soil, water and wildlife conservation on private land in the United States.  Farm bill conservation programs provide about  US$5.8 billion  yearly for activities such as restoring wildlife habitat and using sustainable farming practices. These programs affect about  50 million acres of land nationwide . They conserve  millions of acres of wildlife habitat  and  provide ecological services  such as improved water quality, erosion control and enhanced soil health that are worth billions of dollars.  Sixty percent of US land is privately owned, and it contains a  disproportionately high share  of habitat for ...
