“Our restoration analysis provides decision makers and funders with a critical part of the information necessary to set a national restoration target, which is a crucial step to implement the international targets that Canada has agreed to.” — @JDMSnider
“It also highlights areas where restoration could be considered at regional/local scales. Key to moving forward will be ensuring goals & plans for implementation are co-developed with the consent of Indigenous & local communities in ways that reflect their priorities & knowledge” Map of optimal areas for restoration

@WWF-linked edition of a popular comic strip in Belgium. This particular album is an absolute disgrace & clearly illustrates the mindset of a neocolonial Safari club. Image
It's fundamentally racist: scenes of poverty linked to the laziness of the local population (when the white protagonist asks why the local in the picture is just hanging around and not working, the latter replies: "why work?") Image
Obviously, the white "heroes" from Europe have come over to save Nature from the evil black poachers. Image

Avancée réelle ou nouvelle menace pour les peuples autochtones, le climat et la biodiversité ?
Un consortium d’ONG reprĂ©sentant les intĂ©rĂȘts des peuples autochtones du Sud global a rĂ©cemment dĂ©noncĂ© le plan #30x30 (convertir 30% de la planĂšte en Aires protĂ©gĂ©es d’ici 2030), adoptĂ© Ă  la #COP15, et qualifiĂ© de ‘plus grand plan d’accaparement de terres de l’Histoire’.
Le plan #30x30 se fonde sur le développement des Aires protégées qui excluent les peuples autochtones de leur gestion et les exproprient et les expulsent pour privatiser leurs terres au profit du capitalisme vert (chasse, safaris, compensation carbone

Al Gore (#WEF trustee) et al. are SO CONCERNED about the climate, that they in the process of turning all of #nature into a new asset class – where they will OWN nature, manage/control nature, & profit from nature (via "Natural Asset Companies").

#COP27 #EmergingMarkets #30x30 Image
Of course, this has nothing to do w/ Gore's Generation Investment (#hedgefund co-founded w/ David Blood from Goldman Sachs), #BlackRock, saving capitalism, or the expansion of #privatization. Rather, it's to save the planet.

The $4,000 trillion #climate wealth opportunity.

David Blood to Mark Carney (TCFD/TNFD, #UN Special Envoy for #Climate), 2021:

"We know that #NaturalClimateSolutions are a critical part of the transition to #NetZero & we've known this for quite some time. Why is it so difficult for us in finance [] to put a value on nature?" Image

Intrinsic Exchange Group "harnesses the very market forces" to include natural assets in the mainstream of the economy.

"We are pioneering a new asset class based on natural assets & the mechanism to convert them to financial capital."

#NYSE: "natural asset companies" (#NACs) will be listed & traded on its exchange, "creating a new market whose assets generate trillions of dollars in #ecosystemservices annually."


Sept 17 2021: "NACs enable natural asset owners to convert #nature’s value into financial capital... The asset class was developed to enable exposure to the opportunities created by the estimated $125 trillion annual global #ecosystemservices market."

Natural Asset Companies (#NACs) "HOLD RIGHTS [emphasis mine] to ecosystem services produced by natural or human-controlled lands & profit from trading the #ecosystemservices they provide."

.@elephantfamily's *incredible* lantana elephants have landed in the UK, part of their #CoExistence campaign. In the spirit of productive discussion, a thread on the use of language of coexistence, connectivity and indigenous knowledge in conservation 1/17

I'm attached to (and love) these elephants, I've seen them being made. They were produced in the same place where I conducted my dissertation research. I know the artists and their work and support it 100%- it's important (and beautiful). @tidefortusks @UA_Athletics? 2/17
But I don't think the language in this campaign mirrors the intent of the creators or what conservation coexistence means in a landscape of ongoing fights over indigenous displacement and dispossession. 3/17
