¿Y qué podemos hacer? Cuando decimos que el verdadero desafío es restaurar el Amazonas estamos diciendo que no podemos permitir que ni una sola hectárea afectada por estos incendios cambie su uso hacia ninguna otra cosa que no sea la provisión de servicios ambientales clave para la vida en todo el planeta. No podemos permitir que lo quemado se transforme en áreas agrícolas o de ganadería intensiva.. , esto generaría un incentivo perverso para la continuidad de las quemas. Para ello necesitamos el compromiso de todos: Consumidores, retailers, empresas, gobiernos etc debemos comprometernos a no comprar nada derivado de la zonas quemadas y a exigir su restauración y a colaborar con el proceso. Pero si pensamos que estos procesos se dan sólo en el Amazonas estaríamos cayendo en un error. #prayforamazonas #incendio #planeta #venezuela #brasil #contaminacionambiental #contaminación #ambiente #arboles #amazonaarde #amazonia #amazonianforest #amazonica #biodiversity #biodiversidad

This piece by @samfalc perfectly articulates one truth at the heart of Jane Goodall’s mission: we are all inexorably linked to the natural world. We depend on this planet and are a part of it, along with all of the other species who call it home. It’s up to us to live harmoniously with the other beings with whom we share this world .

The best bartenders are connectors of people. Tim makes a mean cocktail at Sunset Grille but more important than that, he is a bridge - born to be a uniter of different worlds. Tim’s mother is white and grew up well-to-do in Connecticut while his bronze skinned father’s first language was Tiwa as a member of the Taos Pueblo tribe of New Mexico. Tim and I have been housemates for years (he spends half the year in Connecticut and the other half in New Mexico) and we often find ourselves talking about the importance of bringing different people together in this world so often divided by what seems like irreconcilable differences. Just as a healthy ecosystem depends on biodiversity, human progress depends upon cultural and genetic diversity for wisdom gained from a different perspectives and better health that is the result of diverse parental genes. #peace #peaceonearth #diversity #biodiversity #taospueblo #nativeamerican

**SOUND ON***PLEASE SHARE** Actual footage from Amazonia. . . This we saw while filming with @sensu_film on assignment for @junglekeepers . There’s a lot of misinformation going around the Internet. Conspiracy theories etc. Everyone is asking: Isn't there any way to put out the fire? SO LET ME BE VERY CLEAR. Even if we could put out the fire, which we can't, it wouldn't solve the problem. It would douse the symptoms without treating the disease. This is a long term problem that is the result of decades of apathy towards the deforestation we knew was taking place. The Amazon produces the rains that water it. It's a system. And when we cut too much of that system, we damage that self-sustaining loop. We are approaching the Event Horizon of the Amazon tipping point. The only way to stop these fires is constant and sustained respect and protection for these forests - and the refusal to let a globally significant life-giving system damaged by anything. .

It’s taken me a while to do a post about the Amazon fires 🔥 but I wanted to get my facts straight as there’s so much information on social media some of which is incorrect (e.g. photos that aren’t from this year), so here is my interpretation of what I’ve read: -⁣ ⁣ (pic from @owlandbearstudio 💚)⁣ ⁣ * There are thousands of fires burning across Brazil. Burning forests is one of the quickest ways of releasing disastrous amounts of CO2 into the atmosphere, an example of one of those nasty climate feedback loops, with warming leading to drier forests increasing the risk of more fires 🌳⁣ * This does happen yearly in the dry season, but this year there has been a steep increase with levels in July 278% higher than last year 👎⁣ * Many of the fires are thought to have been started deliberately, mostly to clear land for agriculture (or mining and logging) 🐂⁣ * The situation is likely precipitated by right-wing president Bolsonaro who does not condemn deforestation 🇧🇷 ⁣ * It is incredibly worrying because one of the biggest carbon sinks could be lost. If deforestation continues there is risk of the amazon reaching a ‘tipping point’ in which it could degrade to desert like conditions. Not forgetting losing the amazing biodiversity of the rainforest. (However we are NOT going to run out of O2!) ☀️⁣ ⁣ What can individuals do? ⁣ * Support political parties that want to protect the Amazon 🙏⁣ * Donate to and support organisations that support rainforests such as @wwf, @amazonwatch, @rainforestactionnetwork, @rainforestalliance, @friends_earth 🐼⁣ * Sign lots of petitions! Theres a UK specific one in my bio and check out @wwf_uk ’s stories and @zerowastedoc ’s story highlights for more. 💌⁣ * Consider reducing beef consumption 🍔⁣ * If you do eat beef avoid Brazilian beef but also be aware soy is often imported to feed our beef, so go for grass fed British beef 🌱⁣ * No it’s not tofu’s fault, 70% of the soy grown in Brazil is to feed cattle, 6% is for human consumption. But avoid brands that grow soy in Brazil 🍲 (I’ll cover this more another time) * Support sustainable palm oil or avoid palm oil 🐵 * Share on social media but try to make sure it’s accurate 🤗

The planet's lungs are burning and nobody seems to care! Show the world that you do by making this photo your display picture! Together our voice will definitely be heard.

I can't understand how insensitive can this corporate and political greed make you that you are ready to burn 25% of the lungs of 7 billion people, billions of animals, fishes, birds, insects, and other creatures. I wish someone could slap some sense in this Brazil's president Bolsonaro's brains. And this scumbag has the audacity to accuse forest tribes and farmers of these fires. These tribes were relentlessly trying to win cases against mining and oil companies to protect their forests, and right after they won the case, we hear these saddening incidents. From the moment this South American Trump took charge of the President's office, 40,000 forest fires (not trees, forest fire incidents) were detected only in 2018. These incidents have exceeded more than 72,000 in January - August 2019. Out of which, 9500 fires were from August 15 to Yesterday. 2300 sq km of the forest has been cleared in July 2019 alone. Can we have the sensitivity and sympathy to imagine how many lives are lost in these last two years? (yes, trees are living beings like us, far better living beings than us and millions of other creatures also exist on this planet inside these forests if some of us have forgotten). I don't understand we are living in 2019, FFS stop talking about human equality. We should be talking about ecological equality where every creature needs to be treated equally. Whether, its a human, an animal, a bird, a fish, or a tree, if it is killed, it is a murder. And these certain groups which are instigating these forest fire incidents need to be charged for Genocide. - Vikrant Mansera @i_in_intelligence . . #prayforamazonia #amazonrainforest #forestfire #forestfires #amazonfire #forest #planetearth #rainforest #amazonia #prayfortheamazon #actforamazonia #earth #biodiversity #ecosystem #ecologicalequality

#repost @paulrosolie ・・・ Millennium trees lay dying in the dirty sunlight. After the apocalypse of the blaze, I stand in the swirling snow of ashes. Bamboo explosions fire off like canon blasts. The air smells like singed fur and agony. Many animals flee—so many more burn. Sloths and snakes, jaguars and monkeys, baby birds in their nests. And let us not forget the billions of ants and other insects—the list of creatures in a single acre would fill pages and include things we've never heard of. Things Science has never described. The loud warm, dark green beauty that was here just hours ago is gone. Now it is all light and silence. The greatest display of life in the known universe. Gone. . . . . If you are reading this, you probably feel like I do. You are shocked and horrified. But please do not be tortured by despair. It is not productive, and it won’t help the jungle. This is a turning point in the history of the world. For the first time, everyone is watching. Let this be the end of despair and the start of action. There will only be hope if we make it. . . . In the next three days I'm going to be sharing what I have learned are the best ways to TRULY help. To make a real difference. I hope you'll join me in changing the world. (Today I am running around like a madman to every interview that will have me so I can advocate for these forests and animals while the chance is there).

Personal favourite #italiangardens #4 Villa Taranto Terraced #botanicalgarden with a hundred thousand #plant species. Considered one of the most beautiful in the world (fourth here because I'm picky...). Not sure how big it is but I remember I didn't see it all after walking around there four hours. Surrounded by the #alps and by incredible #woodlands ... If you think you know #plants come here and challenge yourself. After being defeated by the power of #biodiversity buy a glass of #nebbiolo

J'ai trouvé cet insecte ce matin dans la maison ; il chantait. Il y a toutes sortes de sauterelles, criquets et grillons dans le jardin mais en dix ans, je n'en avais jamais vu un comme celui-ci. Ses ailes doivent être minuscules ou repliées sous un bouclier comme chez certains scarabées.

32 marques de mode viennent de s’allier pour l’environnement sous le patronnage de François-Henri Pinault, CEO de @kering_official.

Yet another rudimentary, moronic interview on our public broadcaster yesterday. This one, like most, saying we will save XYZ by being “plant based” or eating less beef. We all know the cows are fucking up everything. Dastardly beasts. This time it was some “nutritionist” from Toronto telling people they’ll help the Amazon by eating less beef. I tagged her in @joostbakker latest post to suggest maybe there’s more to the story. She said something back, but I don’t know what because she then blocked me. Never been blocked before. Oh wait, yeah I was once. It was a vegan that came on my site and literally must have spent her evening going through each picture and putting up fun little quips like “too bad you’re going to eat him” and “filthy assassin”. I liked the assassin one so much, I did a post on it. She spread her hate and then blocked me. Seems to work like that. But back to the radio show. When the steam from my ears got too thick to ignore, I went on this woman’s instagram to see, if not eating the traditional foods that our ancestors ate, what she was supporting. Big surprise. Avocado toast. Supernova, chumbawumba ethereal superfood turmeric lattes made with cashew milk. Telling people paleo diets are bad because we need legumes for gut health and blood sugar control. Ugh. No thought to source. No thought to what she was supporting with every bite. The very foods that are destroying our planet. Nary a piece of beef or essential animal fats in the mix. Disconnect draped in a smug, superficial skim of supposed knowledge. No responsibility, rudimentary understanding, parroting ignorance. It’s the plague of our time. And the saddest thing is the poor fuckers that don’t know, that are swamped with just trying to make it in this world. They listen to this kind of stuff and then do try to avoid beef ‘cause the radio said so therefore, it’s gotta’ be true. 👇🏼👇🏼Continued below...

Que triste... Só de pensar na vegetação destruída e no número de espécies nativas sendo eliminadas dá vontade de chorar... tudo por ganância!!

This beautiful photo was taken by one of our employees! This is the best patch of Sunday Orange Plumed Celosia we have ever had! It is chest high! All thanks to Paul, our team, the amazing weather we have been lucky enough to have this year. A lot goes into the thousands and thousands of blooms we spread throughout our corner of Va. This patch has been almost a year in the making by the time we order cover crop seeds, plant overwintered red clover, then let it grow all winter while we are planning our next season ordering seeds and seeding plants in the dead of winter. This patch went on that ground where the clover was tilled in and it is night and day the difference it made! Did you know that clover fixes nitrogen into the soil, provides a wealth of organic plant material, has a tap root that goes down 5ft or more sometimes, and helps aerate and break up the soil so nutrients and water can move up and down, while also making sure water can drain effectively? Then it was also sprayed with multiple rounds of our home brewed compost tea which has all kinds of candy for plants, as well as a huge diversity of good microorganisms that help plants fight off diseases and thrive. It takes a village to bring it all to you. Think about that the next time you buy our flowers, some food for thought! 😊 @windhavenfarmflowers #flowerfarmer #covercrop #flowerfarm #redclover #biodiversity #microorganisms #composttea #cropplanning #farmlife

The planet is losing an important carbon sink, and the fires are directly injecting carbon into the atmosphere. Fires are set deliberately and spread easily in the dry season. The devastating loss of biodiversity does not just affect Brazil. The loss of Amazonian vegetation directly reduces rain across South America and other regions of the world. If we can't stop deforestation in the Amazon, and the associated fires, it raises real questions about our ability to reach the Paris Agreement to slow climate change. Brazil's continued inability to stop deforestation has also reduced international funding for conservation. Norway and Germany, by far the largest donors to the Amazon fund, have suspended their financial support. #amazon #amazon #amazonianforest #amazonrainforest #amazonfires #deforestation #farming #fires #fire #carbon #carbonsink #life #ecosystem #forests #forest #earth #trending #trendingnow #parisagreement #brazil #drought #norway #germany🇩🇪 #funding #donors #biodiversity

Posted @withrepost • @going.zero.waste 7 ways to help the Amazon - right now! The Amazon is often referred to as the planet's lungs, producing 20% of the oxygen in the Earth's atmosphere, and is one of the most biodiverse hotspots in the world. ⁠ ⁠ According to National Geographic, the fires are being fueled by deforestation and forest mismanagement. The fires were started from slash and burn techniques used to clear the forest to make way for cattle and beef production.⁠ ⁠ What's happening right now is heartbreaking. It's important to remember there is hope, and there are things that we can do to help. ❤️⁠ ⁠ Let's all encourage each other in the comments below⁠! Which action you'll be taking? ⁠ ⁠ 1. Inform those not in the environmental circle! Not in a judgy way, just let them know what's up and how they can help. I mean who doesn't want to save these adorable Tamarin monkeys!? ⁠ 2. Donate to a rainforest organization doing awesome work: @rainforestactionnetwork, @rainforestalliance, @amazonwatch⁠ 3. Stop eating beef⁠ 4. Reduce your paper products and choose paper products made from recycled content⁠ 5. Buy secondhand furniture (illegal logging is another big issue the amazon faces!) ⁠ 6. Sign the Save the Amazon @Greenpeace petition⁠ 7. Follow the frog when shopping for Rainforest Alliance Certified Products⁠ ⁠ Did I miss anything? What else would you add to the list?⁠ #goingzerowaste #savetherainforest⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ #followthefrog #rainforestalliance #rainforest #savetheworld #conservation #savetheplanet #sustainability #eco #actonclimate #climatechangeisreal #zerowaste #plasticfree #simplicity #ecofriendly #gogreen #sustainableliving #simpleliving #take3forthesea #biodiversity #climatebreakdown #littersucks

The workshop I just attended in Vienna was absolutely amazing. I think some of my experiences and feelings there are so valuable that they will probably stick with me until the rest of my life. 😊🌿 . The workshop was organised by the Global Youth Biodiversity Network @gybn_cbd . - And of course, our core topic was nature conservation. :) 🐦 But to understand the reasons for environmental problems and the massive loss of species, one has to understand economic and societal issues, as well as our current values - all root causes. 🌱 . That's also what I deal with a lot in my master studies at the moment. But nonetheless, I feel this workshop reached a next level of a holistic view. :) 💫 . Not to forget all these wonderful people I've met from all over Europe and well beyond. We just had so much fun over the week, from fruitful discussions to stupid and fun games in the evenings. 😄 All their energy and passion just multiplies my motivation. . Thanks a lot to the organizers for their amazing work and to all participants and new friends, for the time we've had together. 😊 . . . . . . . . . . #gybn #biodiversity #unep #unitednations #un #unenvironment #agenda2030 #internationalrelations #unenvironment #ipbes #iucn #environmentalist #unconference #undp #globalimpact #4change #youth2030 #youthempowerment #sdg #sustainability #youthoftheday #conservation #conservationist #uno #sdgs #extinctionrebellion #naturschutz #vereintenationen #savenature #saveearth

#climatechange 🇦🇪 These pictures were taken yesterday at the Greenheart farm in Sharjah! Hard to believe that we can grow these beautiful crops completely chemical free in August in the #uaedesert. We don’t invest in pricey adds, fancy offices etc. We have a long term plan and as such we invest in building our own rich soil and in cultivating our own seeds. Long term this is the right approach for food security, sustainability of resources and above all the reduction of carbon in the air. Organic farming has been proven to not only be more productive than chemical farming in the long run (especially in hot climates and during natural disasters such as floods) but that soil farmed organically is the key component to solving our climate crisis. Will be posting more on this soon.

What a rare and beautiful sight to witness a Forest Dragon(Gonocephalus sp.) lay eggs earlier! Also learned that we don't have a native Iguana here in the Philippines. Therefore, this species is not a Iguana. Thank you @naturallybob for the ID and today's learning. 🙏🦎 . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #traillove #wanderlust #reptile #fauna #biodiversity #pinoymountaineer #mountains #mountaineer #exotic #outdoors #zoologist #botanist #animals #summit #adventure #trailporn #travelgram #travel #trail #flora #forest #animal #hike #tropical #rainforest #natgeowild #natgeoyourshot #reptiles #lizard #wildlife

Thayammal is a 75-year-old retired school teacher from Tamil Nadu, India. After teaching at a government school for over 35 years she has chosen to spend her retirement savings and time nurturing an 8 acre forest. She's a true nature hero. Let's salute her and make her an inspiration for others. * * #prayer #amazon #rainforest #rebuildthiscathedral #money #billionaire #conservation #leonardodicaprio #ethical #globalwarming #climatechange #climatecrisis #wild #wildlife #biodiversity #environment #help #air #pollution #gretathunberg #fire #vegan #movement #earth #protectearth #world #future #next #schoolstrike4climate #leonardodicaprio #madonna @unenvironment @nasaclimatechange @chicksforclimate @1millionwomen @cnnclimate @gretathunberg @rainforestalliance
