The Australian Government @DCCEEW last week quietly released draft National Environmental Standards (NES) for Matters of National Environmental Significance (MNES) as part of its #EPBCAct reform.
*2 weeks consultation*, due 22 May 2023
A🧵on key issues👇…
Note the overarching MNES standard is the first to be released, there are others in development that will be released (hopefully) soon, including for:
- Environmental Offsets
- Regional Planning
- First Nations Engagement and Participation
- Community Engagement
First, what's the overall goal? #NaturePositive! (it's mentioned 19 times in the document)

What does this mean? Apparently - a "collective outcome" where the environment is "repaired, regenerated and protected", requiring action everyone, not just government.

1/29. 📜NEW BRIEF: Today we launch “PASSED THE POINT OF NO RETURN: A Non-Economic #LossAndDamage (#NELD) Explainer” covering what #NELD is, why and how it happens, where it happens, who is most affected, and importantly, how we can respond.

🔗Get it here:…
2/29. The brief begins with a foreword by @UNFCCC NELs Expert Group Member @IrfanUllahCDO, who highlights that Non-Economic #LossAndDamage has been largely overlooked in climate negotiations and that urgent action is needed to address #NELD happening now e.g. The #PakistanFloods.
3/29. Then @DLodry of @LossDamageYouth shares the powerful story of his lived experience of Non-Economic #LossAndDamage in #Cameroon called "The Tears Of A Village River And Its Population" which tells how climate-intensified #Drought can lead to a loss of #Culture and #Identity.

Fifth post of the #Wildlife Week #Reintroduction Series.

Day 5 – Return of the #Barasingha to #Satpura #Tiger Reserve !!!

Swamp Deer commonly known as Barasingha have three subspecies, Wetland Barasingha, Hardground Barasingha and Eastern Barasingha.
Once #swamp #deer inhabited areas from Central India to the Godavari river in the south. Currently, they are found in five discrete populations in 3 regions of central, north-east and northern India.
Before the 1950s, the number of Hard ground Barasingha was estimated to be around 3,000 in Banjar Valley of Kanha National Park (KNP). However, by the 1960s the number had dwindled to a meagre 66 due to expansion of #agricultural activities into barasingha habitats...

#WildlifeWeek is here. This week I will be sharing 7 #positive wildlife reintroduction stories from around the country. One story for each day. A small thread.
Day 1 - The return of Gaur in Bandhavgarh Tiger Reserve !!!
1/7 Image
#Gaur the largest #bovine in peninsular #India, was previously found in three discreet populations in Southern India (Western Ghats and #Nilgiri plateau), Central India (#Vidarbha, southern MP, #Chhattisgarh and Eastern ghats in #Odisha) and North-East India.
Gaur were historically found in #Bandhavgarh Tiger Reserve in small numbers. There were around 30-35 Gaur in BTR in the early 1990s, which had dwindled to just one individual in 1996 and zero in 1998.

The exposure of the "Hunger Stone" are important signals that we have crossed a major and possibly unforseen or ignored threshold. The loss of glaciers means the loss of water to Europe's major rivers. This is #peakwater.… Image
The #GlobalFamine is now under way. #SurvivalGardening combines pickling, with cropping/foraging. I like the Kimchi method. Lactosbasillus is a great preservative as long as you can sterilise your vessels.

Stockpile foods, learn to make them last. There are videos on YouTube.

Here is a list of 45 #birds, 22 #mammals, and 30 non-avian #reptiles that are CRITICALLY ENDANGERED due to feral or pet #cats
#invasivespecies #conservation #ornithology #BiodiversityCrisis… Image
first off, I'd like to highlight that "feral #cats on islands are responsible for at least 14% global #bird, #mammal, and reptile extinctions and are the principal threat to almost 8% of critically endangered birds, mammals, and reptiles"…
AND within our own lifetimes, North America has lost more than one in four of its birds. These are not all critically endangered now, but these trends are pointing to #extinction

A dot to dot in dairy farming 🐮 A🧵

1. A cow is inseminated (mostly artificially) and a calf is born

#DitchDairy #VeganLandMovementCIC #Vegan #Wildlife #extinction #climate #ClimateEmergency
2. The calf is taken & either killed within 48 hours, sent to become veal or fattened up for 'beef' or in the case of females to become a future milk production line.
3. Female cows are milked en masse daily and then slaughtered when they can no longer produce. Their lives are short and horrific.

There's a lot of #badnews about #biodiversity and #conservation at the moment, so how about some #conservationoptimism? 🧵 based on our new paper… and some awesome recent work by others... 1/
As you probably know, the world has ambitious targets to protect 17% of the world's land for #biodiversity #conservation, and there are calls to increase this to anywhere between 26-60% in the next round of @UNBiodiversity talks (this year) 2/
In theory, this is great for biodiversity (more on the human impacts later). Problem is that the total area of land that you protect may not be important: a lot of #protectedareas are small or isolated, and this means that the populations are also small and isolated 3/

#PlausibleWorstCaseScenario #ClimateCrisis
2019, 2020 and 2021 were ominous – but they barely touched the surface.
Expect more heatwaves, storms, floods, droughts. Watch as the Arctic and Antarctic continue to melt.

Coral Reef death escalates.

#PlausibleWorstCaseScenario #ClimateCrisis
Ice caps and glaciers lose cohesion. Water sources evaporate. Heatwaves, droughts and soil loss ratchet up.
Climate famines hit Africa, South Asia, South and Central America. Water is now the primary cause of war.

Thread : Buy #palmoilfree and #boycott all Nestle @Nestle products because their #palmoil is destroying rainforest, causing massive global species #extinction. Join me and #Boycott4Wildlife - use your wallet as a weapon!… via @palmoildetect
This brand @Nestle @NestleUSA @NestleUKI @NestleHealthUS
is destroying rainforests, releasing mega-tonnes of carbon into the atmosphere, killing hundreds of endangered species. See Nestlé’s full list of mills where they buy palm oil, six of these are actively destroying forest.
Forest in Indonesia, Malaysia, Africa. They are burn down huge extensions of forests to stablish palm oil plantations. This savage #ecocide is changing the ecosystems forever. Pls take action. Don't keep this going #climatechange #PalmOil #ProtectWildLife #BoycottPalmOilProduct

Exactly! Humans are now responsible for these extinctions as the planets Apex Predator!
Humans are responsible for most mammalian extinctions for the past 125,000 years. That's an insane amount of time!
The rate at which mammals are going extinct is also going up as we humans continue to change the climate. Polar bears for example, losing their habitat due to the melting ice caps, which we have been causing since the industrial revolution. Also rainforest are being cut down.

" The rise in weather and climate extremes has led to some irreversible impacts as natural and human systems are pushed beyond their ability to adapt"

1/ Well, tx for the waiting but we had to double check out #scientific findings cause:
It turns out #history of the #extinction of the #dinosaurs has to be rewritten! We found prove that Dinos survived at least until 11/2/2022 !!!

But let's start from the beginning.
puhh, I wanted to start from the beginning and than an surprising attack of vomiting struck me down. I suspect angry competitors poisening me. Anyway, as I said, we found dinos. Apparently they are not that special here. At first this one(1). It was sleeping or mummified,...
... sure yet. we went on (1) till Dolavon, they turn left looking for promising land. till (2). First we found some dino footprints(3). they were pretty fresh for animals supposedly extinct ten of millions of years ago! we knew we were on something big there!...
