Fourth post in the #WildlifeWeek series. Today’s post is more of a #reviving one than #reintroduction.

Day 4 – Return of the #bandits to #Chambal !

The Red Crowned Roofed #turtle is a #species of #freshwater turtle endemic to South #Asia.
Historically the species was widespread in the #Ganga River, both in #India and #Bangladesh. Extirpated from most of its former range but currently it has dwindled a last surviving population of less than 500 adult individuals in the #wild.
Their population reduced drastically due to depredation of eggs and hatchlings by Golden #jackals, #habitat degradation due to #pollution and illegal sand mining in the floodplains. They are also extensively #poached for their meat and shell.

Thank you @UNFPAPakistan for the honour of asking me to moderate the #WDD @SindhGovt1 seminar on the occasion of #IWD2022 titled
'Gender Equality Today for a Sustainable Tomorrow' @SyedaShehlaRaza @bayramgul_unfpa
It allowed me to point out some important work at policy level to mainstream #Gender issues, like #ccGap document by #IUCN Pakistan & @MoCC with @theGCF readiness support to work in tandem with National #ClimateChangePolicy by highlighting interventions in 6 priority sectors
Progress was narrated by #WDD rep. on #genderfriendly new laws, & amend. in existing laws is heartening. Look forward to their wide implementation. Also about measures about safety of women & safe houses like DarulAman @SyedaShehlaRaza @UNFPAPakistan @bayramgul_unfpa @SCSWPK

New paper alert! 📢 I am thrilled to announce that after 3 years of hard work from 204 (!) coauthors, we have published the results of our validation of the new @IUCN #GreenStatusOfSpecies, using data from 181 species from across the tree of life 🧵(1/)
We found that the #GreenStatusOfSpecies method for assessing species' recovery status, and the impact conservation has had on recovery, is widely-applicable and ecologically-meaningful (2/) ImageImage
We found that species' recovery status is linked to, but separate from @IUCNRedList extinction risk category, meaning that the #GreenStatusOfSpecies will provide new information that is conservation-relevant. This is captured in new #IUCN Species Recovery Categories (3/) ImageImageImage

Zum Thema #Osterlockdown hier eine wichtige Veröffentlichung der DTG:… und ein Thread von uns. 👇 (1/5)
Moderne Zoos und Aquarien bieten das, was man an Ostern braucht: Sichere Orte für Familien. Hier können sie mit Abstand eine sehr lehrreiche Zeit verbringen. Daher ist es sinnvoll, die Zoologischen Gärten offen zu halten:

Dazu ist es eine Investition in die Zukunft, die #Zoos und #Aquarien nicht zu ruinieren, denn sie sind Teil der Lösung und nicht des Problems:…

Daher wirkt eine Schließung langfristig wie ein Bumerang. (3/5)

Other than everything else wrong with this ad. Why is there an assumption that only HE can do the job? Why are ads only for Men? Especially those whose experience of Marine ecology is zilch! This is a deliberately confrontational route being taken through #PIDA. #SaveOurIslands Image
Why are #PresidentialOrdinances being issued. Why are there Assemblies. What is the urgency in 'developing' these islands, bulldozing the wishes of the inhabitants. Why is the @SindhGovt1 not responding to concerns, reservations & protests of civil society. #SaveOurIslands
The fragile coast has already been vandalized by commercial greed. ENOUGH! We are a #ClimateChange vulnerable country. @WWFPak & #IUCN Pakistan had already expressed reservations in the past when #Bundal island 'development' was planned. Why are they being ignored #SaveOurIslands

With #Covid19 as the ultimate catalyst, the push is on to implement the financialization of nature.

The Natural Capital Coalition is made up of approx. 300 orgs/corps while working w/ thousands. Partners include #CocaCola, #Shell, #Walmart.

Those with money will own #nature.
Those w/ $ will own #nature.

The very corporations that have brought us to the precipice of #ecological #collapse - will now be appointed as the new stewards of nature. This has been dubbed (#XR Business - Elkington/Volans) as the new biosphere economy.

Let's take a look at how #Covid19 has been successfully leveraged (both fear & distraction) in order to aid the largest transformation of the global economic system in modern history. Assigning monetary value to nature ("natural capital") will replace #GDP.

Coming up: The #NewDealForNature

The financialization of nature, global in scale.

#COVID19 is the omni-solution for the implementation of all ruling class "solutions" & desires. The further consolidation of power. The theft of nature.

#GND #GGND #ecofascism #biofascism
"The #COVID19 crisis shows us that it is possible to make transformational changes overnight... a different world with a different economy... But there is also a strong business case for using this crisis to usher in #global systemic change."…
The financialization of #nature has been in the works for well over the last decade. This is a complete transformation of the global economic system. Some key players for now ramping up it's implementation are identified in the accounts tagged by the Natural Capital Coalition.

#Inktober catch up 31/31 #Cuckoo #inktoberredlist I had to finish off with the cuckoo, as they symbolise for me what has been called 'shifting baseline' syndrome. My 'nature' base line of growing up the UK in the 70's was full of insects, and birds.
Huge flocks of sparrows, starlings and lapwing. So many flies and insects that we needed a fly screen on the back door. Thunderbugs and ladybird swarms. The car bonnet covered in insects after a short journey. The sound of cuckoo's every Spring. Dead hedgehogs on the roads!
That was my 'normal'. For most of my children's generation that has changed, to the point where they don't even know the names of everyday birds, because they've never seen one. @robgmacfarlane and @JackieMorrisArt writing a book, The Lost Words, to help children 'rediscover' and
