Jane Smart said: “This Red List update confirms the findings of the recent IPBES Global Biodiversity Assessment: nature is declining at rates unprecedented in human history,” External link

Lee Hannah says: “We really have to up our game because we have numbers of species from sharks to rays that are headed toward extinction from fishery,” “We know that we’ve been late to the game to get marine protected areas and other conservation measures in place in the marine realm” External link

time Friday, July 19, 2019 1:15:00 AM CEST

Lee Hannah says: “We know that the best way to protect species is to get habitat conserved,” “Freshwater is by far the most critical, terrestrial on land and we need to be doing this before the window closes in the next 10 or 20 years … It’s ambitious, but if we want to prevent these extinctions, that’s the sort of number we’ve gotta shoot for” External link

Colin Simpfendorfer said: “To prevent losing these ray families, it is critical that governments immediately establish and enforce species protections, bycatch mitigation programmes, marine protected areas, and international trade controls. Educational initiatives focused on Rhino Ray identification, status, and safe-release protocols for animals captured incidentally are also urgently needed at the local level to effectively implement protections,” External link

Russ Mittermeier said: “West Africa is one of the very highest priority areas on Earth for primate conservation. The combination of forest destruction and heavy bushmeat hunting – probably the highest level of this latter threat anywhere in the word – has pushed a number of primate species there to the brink of extinction,” External link

William Darwall said: “The world’s freshwater fish species, which number almost 18,000, are undergoing a dramatic and largely unrecognised global decline, as made apparent in the high levels of extinction threat to freshwater fish species in Japan and Mexico,” External link

Thomas Gehring said: "People don't like to see a lot of gulls on the beach," "Aesthetically, it's not pleasant for them. They don't like gulls coming up to try and steal food. It scares them. It interferes with their enjoyment of the area" External link

Erik Larson says: "We used satellite imagery and grueling on-the-ground surveys to look at what was happening with invasive plants after a series of windstorms -- a tornado in 2006, a derecho in 2009, and another tornado in 2017 -- hit southern Illinois forests," External link

Melissa Daniels says: "It was hands-down one of the most difficult things I've ever done, and I do a lot of difficult things, like ski mountaineering, long backpacking trips, and mountain climbing. Illinois summers are brutal, but they're even more difficult when you are walking up steep hills, climbing over logs that are half your height, pulling off two dozen ticks a day, and battling stinging nettle and poison ivy," "But it's so beautiful and we were seeing places that most people will never see" External link

sciencedaily Thursday, July 18, 2019 6:16:00 PM CEST

Melissa Daniels says: "Since invasive plants decreased over time, some might interpret that as the forest healing on its own, and that they don't need to worry about it. The issue with that is, of our top five invaders, all of them demonstrate the ability to grow under closed canopy conditions. That means that even if they are being shaded out over time, they have the ability to spread into and persist in adjacent forest, potentially affecting forest regeneration," External link

sciencedaily Thursday, July 18, 2019 6:16:00 PM CEST

Melissa Daniels says: "If you need to preferentially spend money on invasive species management, it makes more sense to focus treatment in larger blowdown areas," "We also found that the most common invaders in the blowdowns were also the most common invaders in unaffected forest, suggesting the disturbance is just releasing what's already present in the system. Therefore, we recommend land managers focus their treatment on the most abundant invasives in their system" External link
