Is whaling the biggest threat to whales? 16.9.2014 The Guardian -- Front Page
As countries meet in Slovenia to discuss proposals for whale conservation the headlines are dominated by the activities of whaling nations. Karl Mathiesen, with your help, investigates whether were right to focus so much on whaling compared to other threats, from shipping to climate change. Post your thoughts in the comments below, email karl.mathiesen.freelance@theguardian.com or tweet @karlmathiesen 12.31pm BST The Icelandic minister of fisheries, Sigurður Ingi Jóhannsson, has responded to an international initiative calling upon it to cease its whaling practices, saying that its cull is sustainable. I think that in the past few years we have been too shy about [our sustainable whaling practices] and I think its really burned us, Jóhannsson told Icelands RUV news . People and companies have maintained for a long time [that whaling has damaged the reputation of Icelanders] and pitted tourism and whale watching against whaling. But if we look at this rationally, and analyse the numbers, these two ...

Invest in monitoring and tagging sharks to prevent attacks 15.9.2014 The Guardian -- Front Page
Use satellite technology as an early warning system when sharks swim close to populated beaches, rather than killing them The halting of shark cull in Western Australia suggests commonsense may have finally prevailed when it comes to shark conservation. It might not yet be a foregone conclusion, however, with the Environmental Protection Authority (EPA) stating in their latest report that there was a high degree of scientific uncertainty about its impact upon the great white shark population. But the state premier Colin Barnett has suggested it will not be possible to place baited drumlines across the WA coast this summer. It appears, under the pressure of opposition, that the way forward may be a more targeted approach and non-lethal ...

Community Agriculture Alliance: Fall is the best time to order seedling trees 12.9.2014 Steamboat Pilot
The first hints of color are starting to show in the forests around Steamboat, and summer is coming to a close. But for private landowners, fall is a good time to think about the trees they may want to plant on their properties next spring. The Colorado State Forest Service Nursery has been growing trees for conservation for decades, making low-cost seedlings available to any Coloradans interested in conservation goals such as creating natural windbreaks, improving wildlife habitat or reforesting properties impacted by wildfire or floods. “The nursery prides itself on growing a variety of species suitable for Colorado’s diverse landscapes,” CSFS Nursery Manager Josh Stolz said. “Colorado-grown species are adaptable, hardy and ideal for wildfire recovery, riparian restoration and a variety of other conservation uses.” Seedling tree order forms for 2015 will be coming out soon. Those who have ordered trees from the CSFS Nursery before may notice a few small changes this year in how the program is run ...
