"#Regram #rg @thewcs: Tropical forests are in trouble. Right now, habitat loss is one of the greatest threats to the future of elephants, tigers, and countless other species. The Tropical Forest Conservation Act (TFCA) is an important tool to help combat it. TFCA agreements have saved more than 67 million acres of forest in Botswana, Brazil, the Philippines, Indonesia, and many other countries. Bipartisan legislation has been introduced that would ensure this program continues, and even expands to protect more areas. If you’re in the U.S., contact your senators via the link in our bio and urge them to support it. . . #asia#forest#elephants#asianelephants#tropicalforests#senate#legislation#speakup#actnow#conservation#habitatloss"

"#Regram #rg @natgeo: Photograph by @enricsala The high seas - marine waters beyond any country’s jurisdiction - cover 64 percent of the ocean’s surface, and are dominated by a handful of fishing countries that reap the biggest benefits of fishing in these global commons. The main types of fishing in the high seas target tuna (like the yellowfin in the photo), sharks, squid, krill, and deep bottom-dwelling fish. But do these countries really benefit from that distant fishing? And who does? A new @natgeopristineseas study reveals that, without large government subsidies, fishing in more than half of the current high seas fishing grounds would be unprofitable. In fact, on aggregate, subsidies to high seas fishing (more than $4 billion per year) are more than twice larger than the profits. These results support the idea of eliminating subsidies that perpetuate overfishing and destruction of the marine environment. For a bolder proposal for conservation of the high seas, watch Enric Sala's TED talk (link at @enricsala profile) @natgeo @globalfishingwatch #highseas"
"#Regram #rg @amazonfrontlines: In February, despite massive protests by indigenous Amazonians, the Ecuadorian government announced the auction of 16 new oil blocks in the Amazon, covering nearly 7 million acres of roadless, primary rainforest. Block 22 overlaps the legal territory of 18 Waorani communities. All 18 communities are united in resistance and launched a global campaign last week in opposition to oil extraction on indigenous lands. They have drafted a petition to oil companies telling them not to bid on Oil Block 22. Their lands are not for sale. ⠀ ⠀ Support the Waorani and help defend the Amazon. Sign the global petition petition telling oil companies that Waorani land, the most biodiverse rainforest on Earth, is not for sale! ⠀ ⠀ Link in Bio. ⠀ ⠀ #waoraniresistance#resistenciawaorani"
"#Regram #rg @nrdc_org: Exactly a year ago, President Trump vowed to withdraw U.S. participation from the 2015 Paris climate agreement. Fortunately, leaders across the country have rejected Trump’s call to walk away from the promise of Paris. That’s why we are proud to join @BloombergDotOrg in announcing the Bloomberg American Cities Climate Challenge: which calls on America’s mayors to lead the way in tackling climate change and join the #wearestillin pledge.

"#Regram #rg @oceana: TIME IS RUNNING OUT! Right now, Secretary Zinke is working to destroy vital protections for the #arctic Ocean and the beluga whales that depend on it. Dangerous new oil and gas exploration activities in the Arctic’s Beaufort Sea would effectively sabotage belugas’ ability to communicate and survive. It’s on us to protect these highly sociable marine mammals from President Trump’s catastrophic offshore drilling plans.

"#Regram #rg @unfoundation: Powering the Za’atari refugee camp in Jordan is the largest solar plant ever built in a refugee camp. The size of 33 soccer fields, the plant provides 12 to 14 hours of power per day. Before the solar plant, energy was expensive and less reliable, with families only able to use electricity for 6-8 hours a day. . The benefits of the solar plant are far-reaching: allowing children to study at night, families to more safely walk in the camp, food to stay fresh longer, and more. It also cuts carbon emissions (the equivalent of 30,000 barrels of oil) and energy costs, saving the @UnitedNations half a million U.S. dollars per month. The solar plant also creates job opportunities by employing Syrian refugees who live in Za’atari. . This green technology is run by @Refugees, dedicated to building better futures for the millions forced from home. . . . #withrefugees#globalgoals#sdgs#solarpower .

"#Regram #rg @conservationorg: With a responsibility for 10% of the world’s ocean surface, 23 Pacific countries and territories came together to form the Pacific Oceanscape. This framework was put in place in order to protect, manage and sustain the Pacific Ocean’s cultural and natural integrity. Here at @ConservationOrg, we work hand-in-hand with these communities and governments across the #pacific to conserve critical habitats in the region, including islands, coasts and the open #ocean."
