Mike Fitz said: “More than anything, Fat Bear Week is an annual celebration of Katmai’s robust, healthy ecosystem and the success of brown bears who live within it,” “Our world is greatly wounded by extinction, habitat loss, and climate change. These issues are worsening. Most of Katmai National Park is within the Bristol Bay watershed, which is home to the last great salmon run on Earth. Fat Bear Week provides us with the opportunity to reflect upon and witness an ecosystem functioning at its fully realized potential” External link

Sam Waterston said: “I’ve loved the ocean all my life,” “As a New Englander, I’ve seen first-hand the damage fisheries mismanagement has done to the life of seaside towns and the healing power of Oceana’s science-based, results oriented, campaigns for an abundant ocean. And I’ve seen the impact of unbridled plastic production and pollution, and the North Atlantic on the brink of losing all its right whales forever. With much to do, and time of the essence, I know Oceana gets things done for our oceans. It always has. I’m honored to accept the position of Board Chair and look forward to restoring our oceans’ abundance” External link

foreignaffairs-nz Saturday, September 26, 2020 3:40:00 AM CEST

Cyrille Vigneron said: “Biodiversity, including wildlife and healthy ecosystems, underpin the well-being, safety, and resilience of all societies. Yet, one million animal and plant species are at risk of extinction in the coming decades, largely due to human activity. The COVID-19 crisis is a stark reminder that we ignore our disruption of nature at our peril. But the crisis continues to show the potential of humans to act collectively to address a shared global challenge. Leveraging the power of creativity and partnerships, The Lion’s Share idea is as fascinating as the far-reaching impact it will have. The revenue generated and the new audiences reached by this ambitious and unique initiative will make a real and lasting effect on the future of our planet and the animals we share it with". "The beauty of the natural world has always been a source of inspiration and creativity for Cartier’s timeless pieces,” External link

qnewshub Thursday, September 24, 2020 11:11:00 PM CEST

Jacqueline Savitz says: “Studies have found that switching proteins from red meat to seafood reduces the risk of heart disease, cancer and diabetes, and micronutrients like those found in wild-caught fish are important in preventing prenatal and maternal mortality, growth retardation, child mortality, cognitive deficits and reduced immune function,” External link

qnewshub Thursday, September 24, 2020 11:11:00 PM CEST

Jacqueline Savitz says: “When you look at how much fish protein you get per dollar invested compared to all the other animal proteins, fish is a good business decision. Wild seafood is a truly renewable resource,” External link

Andreas Fleischmann said: "Noting their unique and fascinating features, some species of carnivorous plants are illegally collected from their natural habitats and sold to collectors. Poached plants of some species sell for hundreds of dollars," External link

Andreas Fleischmann says: “The Red-List status of all carnivorous plants is now known, while only 10% of all 300.000 known flowering plants have been assessed to their Red List status by IUCN thus far” External link

innovations-report Thursday, September 24, 2020 6:08:00 PM CEST

Andreas Fleischmann says: “Carnivorous plants can only exist on nutrient-poor soils. If these are fertilized, for example with nitrogen, the nutrient specialists will become extinct. One problem is the over-fertilization of our landscape with air-borne nitrogen that originates from industrial dusts, traffic and agriculture. This is a serious problem especially for sensitive habitat specialists” “Our study forms an important basis for preserving and protecting the diversity of this group of plants” External link

Howard Quigley said: “In the big picture of range-wide viability of jaguars, this can be seen as just another blip on the radar of jaguar survival, having very little overall impact,” External link

mongabay Thursday, September 24, 2020 5:00:00 PM CEST

Howard Quigley added: “Jaguar survival is strongly tied to two things: the security of the core populations … and the movement of jaguars through the land between the cores, or corridors, the overall combination of which is the Jaguar Corridor,” “Looking just at the Pantanal, these fires certainly don’t aid in the security of the Pantanal jaguar population” External link

mongabay Thursday, September 24, 2020 5:00:00 PM CEST

Howard Quigley said: “Jaguars should have plenty to eat over the coming months if they take up or maintain territories that overlap bodies of water,” “The survival question then becomes how the jaguars will make it through the wet season when the main prey disperse into the huge expanse of water that is the Pantanal from January to May” External link

azcentral Wednesday, September 23, 2020 4:26:00 PM CEST

Michael Robinson said: “This is an important first step because the loss of habitat is the main reason the yellow-billed cuckoo is on a trajectory towards extinction,” “The places where the cuckoo can find an abundance of prey are in the richest part of the landscape, along the streams and rivers. The transformation of these rivers means that the places cuckoos have successfully nested have shrunk considerably” External link

They walk really fast and are really aggressive because they’re really worried about themselves in an area they don’t know” External link
