A thread on the Emergency Recovery Plan for #freshwater #biodiversity, just published by @BioScienceAIBS

6 actions to Bend the Curve on freshwater biodiversity loss

#1 Implement environmental flows, such as below Three Gorges Dam on Yangtze Riverโ€ฆ
#2 To bend the curve on freshwater biodiversity, improve water quality.

The Cuyahoga River (below in @CVNPNPS) once was biologically dead from pollution. Actions-local to federal-tackled pollution & bent the curve for Cuyahoga; sections which lacked fish now have > 40 species.
#3 to bend the curve on freshwater biodiversity loss, protect and restore critical habitats.

Ramsar designation and other protected areas can safeguard habitats and species, such as this American crocodile in the Terraba-Sierpe National Wetlands in Costa Rica

Iโ€™m so bloody tired of freshwater ecosystems being overlooked ๐Ÿ˜ค. So hereโ€™s a thread about why you and everyone else should give a shit #freshwaterneedslovetoo #tellyourgrandmothertoo๐Ÿž๏ธ(1/n)
#Freshwater makes up less than 2.5% of the worldโ€™s water (much is inaccessible, trapped in glaciers) yet 140000 species incl. 55% (!!) of all #fish species ๐ŸŸdepend on it to survive (2/n)

The world (people, organizations etc.) focuses much more on marine and terrestrial ecosystems, often literally excluding #freshwater at all. Ex: this figure by IUCN. Where the fuck are freshwater species? #freshwaterneedslovetoo (3/n)
