On #WorldEnvironmentDay2023 sharing my top 5 #Wildlife destinations. A thread with photos by @shranjan

1) Corbett - The #beauty of #Corbett lies in its montane #river valleys, majestic Sal #forests and expansive #grasslands teeming with #wildlife.

@ReserveCorbett #Dhikala ImageImageImageImage
2) Tadoba - It has transformed from a little known forest in the 90’s to Central India’s tiger capital. The only park where tiger sightings in #buffer zone are as good as the core.
@etadoba #tadoba @SvasaraResorts #TigerReserve ImageImageImageImage
3) Kaziranga - Wildlife as far as the #eye can see, the only park in #India that can match the experience of #MasaiMara. You can sight the “Big Five” in a single #safari.

Okay folks as we seem to be heading in to some warm dry weather we need to talk about #bees and #water.

Please #retweet this to provide bees a helping hand. Thanks


Given that they can collect water, their nectar based diet and their ability to generate…
…large amounts of water metabolically during flight #bumblebees are less prone to dehydration/desiccation than most terrestrial insects.

However they still need safe access to water.

Research suggests that #bees locate sources of #water by smell rather than sight.
#water is a source of essential #nutrients for #bees and this explains their preference for ‘dirty’ water sources containing organic matter, algae etc.

Indeed #honeybees have the ability to and will change their preferred source of #water to an alternative in order to…

"In March 2023 the #Forest #Conservation Amendment bill was plaed before the LokSabha. Ms Prakriti Srivastava,IFS (PCCF #Kerala) & I jointly wrote a submission to the Joint Parliamentary Committee, link provided at the end of the (long) thread. 1/n
highlighting the imp pts:
Fundamental changes in the proposed bill:
a)Limits the scope & ambit of the original FCA (1980), removing crucial safeguards from a vast majority of India's #biodiverse rich #forests, thereby opens the floodgates for diversion for other uses
b) Undoes many provisions of the existing #ForestConservationAct; c) dilutes the 202/1996 #SupremeCourt ‘Godavarman’ #judgement, overturns its #conservation gains
(d) facilitates privatisation of forests to create plantations
e) shifts focus from conservation of forests to 3/n

With the cacophony over #Elephant #Arikomban, lets understand how such #elephants are 'made', and #conflict created. As per a #Kerala cabinet decision taken in August 2002, 559 families of landless tribals were settled on 276 ha land in #Chinnakanal during 2003. The then 1/9 Image

I’m delighted to announce that my provocative piece on the impact of #plasticpollution on the #tropics is the first published article in Journal of Tropical Futures published by @SAGEPublishers…

#plasticfree #plastic #plasticwaste #plastictreaty
Unsustainable #plastic production, use and mismanagement have resulted in increased #plasticpollution in the environment threatening #sustainability, especially in the #tropics.

#sustainabledevelopment #sustainabilitymatters #singleuseplastic
Countries in the #tropics have been disproportionally impacted by #plasticpollution due to imports of #plasticwaste from developed countries, or because tropical Small Island Developing States have become overwhelmed by #singleuseplastics used widely in the tourism sector.

A new study published in @ConservationSP reveals 3.9M hectares of converted land in 🇨🇦 that—if restored—benefit biodiversity & climate. The study comes at a pivotal time as Cdn govt committed to #30x30 restoration targets at #COP15 🌎… Marshland forest in Ontario
“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

We need to talk about nature… 🌿

Please, please don’t be one of those people who watch a show like Wild Isles, think how beautiful nature is and how sad it is that we’re losing it at an alarming rate, but then not do anything about it!


Here’s how... 🧵
There are dozens of things individuals and businesses can do to support nature’s recovery and help tackle ecological collapse and biodiversity loss.

And some of those things are really quick and easy to do.

Here are just a few of them…

A plan created for the people, by the people of the UK – a vision for the future of nature, and the actions we must all take to protect and renew it. Add your voice here, takes 10s:

1/9 - This is one of the biggest contradictions I’ve seen. @The_RHS, THE MOST INFLUENTIAL #gardening charity in the UK, whilst promoting Plants For Pollinators, are still endorsing “WEED”KILLERS! 😡 “Inspiring everyone to grow” (except the wildflowers) Don’t believe me?👇🧵
2/9 - Whilst not actively selling this product on their own website, it’s available via @jennychem_. What sickens me more is the detail in which various weed killers are described to eradicate different “weed” species, INCLUDING my favourite #wildflower Bird’s-foot trefoil! 😡
3/9 - Take Bird’s foot trefoil for example. It’s a larval food plant of the Common Blue, Green Hairstreak & Dingy Skipper butterflies and also Six-spot burnet moth. It also provides nectar for many bees and other insects, along with ALL the other plants listed in the next tweet.

🚨🚨🚨 NEW EVIDENCE #zoonosis
Chinese researchers (who have had troubles getting data out) finally managed to sneak upload full #sequencing data from environmental swaps at Huanan market.

Show: Co-occurance of #animal sequences with SARS-CoV-2 RNA

Added to the evidence map 🔽
@KatherineJWu 's atlantic article first reported on this new development.

(independent reseachers have been waiting on these data to come out for over a year)

I will give some context in the next few tweets:…
1⃣ Does this prove that SARS-CoV-2 came from racoon dogs?

Not definitively. Co-occurance of sequences could be from chance contamination in theory. Also, even if racoon dogs were indeed infected, they might just have been amplifiers at market, not the original source.

Today is the #WorldWildlifeDay 🐗

There are many reasons why it is important to protect #wildlife in Rwanda. Here are 10 key reasons


📸:Culture Trip. ImageImageImageImage
1. Biodiversity.

Wildlife plays a critical role in maintaining the biodiversity of ecosystems in Rwanda.

A diverse ecosystem is more resilient to environmental changes and can support a greater variety of plant and animal life.
2. Tourism.
Rwanda's wildlife, particularly its mountain gorillas, is a major tourist attraction.

Protecting these animals and their habitats is crucial to the country's tourism industry, which is an important source of revenue and employment.

@euro writes (vital thread) to warn us that

1/ EU regulations are not perfect but are not ‘red tape’ either. They improve the quality of our everyday lives by protecting our rights as #workers and #consumers, our #environment and #wildlife and the quality of the #food we eat.
Please, read on 2/ to get more detail on the #REUL Bill (Retained EU Law)
I personally experienced that EU decisions were all scrutinised by UK Parliamentary Committees before they became law!…
2/ These EU laws were created with the support of the governments of all the political parties when the UK was in the EU.
EU laws – that the Government now wants to dismantle – protect us in the workplace. They guarantee our paid holidays, reduce the gender pay gap and protect

3/10. If you see an insect with a triangular head, bulging eyes, sitting upright with arms folded like in prayer, it is likely a ‘praying’ mantis.

Here is an example. It is not praying, but eating a bumblebee.

Blackthorn (Prunus spinosa)

Part of the cherry family this pretty tree is sometimes known as "Mother of the Wood" but it's commonly more famous for its berries ... Hubert Berberich (HubiB), via Wikimedia Commons
Flowering as early as late February (flowering from last year's growth & another reason not to cut hedges) & before its leaves are formed, its glorious abundance of creamy blossoms provides vital sustenance for bees after winter.

The Blackthorn flowers are hermaphrodite meaning they have male & female parts in each flower. ♂️♀️

వన్యప్రాణి అంటే మానవుడు మచ్చిక చేసుకోని జంతువులను వన్య ప్రాణులుగా అభివర్ణిస్తారు. నేడు ప్రపంచ వన్యప్రాణుల సంరక్షణ దినోత్సవం సందర్భంగా #WorldwildlifeConservationDay
మృగాల వల్లే మానవ మనుగడ....
క్రూర మృగాలు లేకపోతే మానవ మనుగడే లేదనడం అతిశయోక్తి కాదు.
వన్యప్రాణులు ఒకదానిపై ఒకటి ఆధారపడి జీవనం కొనసాగిస్తాయి. వన్య ప్రాణుల సంఖ్య భూమి మీద విపరీతంగా పెరిగి వినాశనం చోటు చేసుకోకుండా క్రూర మృగాలు వన్య ప్రాణులను వేటాడుతూ పర్యావరణాన్ని సమతూకంలో ఉంచుతాయి. క్రూరమృగాలు తమ జాతి సంతతి పెరగకుండా కూడా తమవంతుగా ముందస్తు చర్యలు తీసుకుంటాయి.
తమ చుట్టు ఉన్నవాటితో సంపర్కం కొనసాగించకుండా సుదీర్ఘ ప్రాంతంలోనున్న క్రూర మృగాలతో సంపర్కం కొనసాగించి మళ్లీ తమ యథాస్థానానికి వచ్చేస్తాయి. ఒక పులి సంవత్సరానికి 52 నుంచి 60 వన్య ప్రాణులను చంపి ఆహారంగా తీసుకుంటుంది. రోజుకు పులి 7 నుంచి 8 కిలోల మాంసాన్ని ఆహారంగా తీసుకుంటుంది.
