#Aarey facts #Activists don’t tell us

Environmental Impact Assessment (#EIA) report of having @MumbaiMetro3 carshed in #Aarey was prepared not by #MMRCL or any govt agencies but by a neutral #Japanese agency - #JICA (Japan International Cooperation Agency)?

#Aarey Facts we don’t know 2

In Oct 2018, #MumbaiHC accepted govt’s argument that the #Aarey land will not be used for ANY #commercial project and a monitoring and supervising mechanism would be in place to ensure that the #conditions imposed on the MMRCL are met

#Aarey Facts we don’t know 3

Only #2 % of #Aarey land is used for #Metro

There are no #Adivasi padas nor #wildlife per se in the 30-hectare area, which is bound on 3 sides by major roads-
Jogeshwari-Vikhroli Link Rd
Marol-Maroshi road &
Goregaon-Mulund Link Road

About climbing my 1st 14er, campaigning for @PeteButtigieg at 14,000ft, finding community with strangers, an electrifying moment, and the biggest surprise of my life!
We arrived at the #MtEvans trailhead around 7:30am, the peak was lost in fast moving clouds. #14er
Mt Evans magnets & shirts don't lie, the GOATS! So awesome.
We had goats greet us at the trailhead, we kept our distance &
ogled them with delight. #14ers
#OhWhataBeautifulMorning
#TeamPete, I brought my @playmobil #minime & a #Pete2020 banner for some inspiring photos exploring #AmericatheBeautiful.
#SummitLake parking lot, with another 2,00-odd ft to ascend to the peak of #MtEvans, a #14er that I can see from my house, SE of Denver!

You've raised a valid Point @lesoi_ndoka - #CONservationists force #LOCALS pay to see Kenyan #wildlife.. #Business as usual?? Yet, @DSWT raises vasts amount of money through FUNDING and have branches of @DSWT throughout the world.
@MwangP01 @JamesOhayo @gathara @alaminkimathi
Take a look at this page for the David Sheldrick Wildlife Fund: - "You can foster an elephant for a Minimum annual donation of US$50 (GBP£35)" or 4515.35. They have millions of donations across the world..

Charging our children 500/- or any Kenyan to touch and see Wild Life in Funded sanctuaries is plain wrong - #CONservation is about care - but unfortunately the truth is that it's big MONEY and locals are locked out..

Tread: It’s #FolkloreThursday so I thought I should do some folklore on common #wildlife in the U.K.!
One of my favourites is that if you have a #bees on your property you should always keep them in the know about the goings on in your house.
Also if there’s a death you should turn the hive towards the road so the bees can mourn when the hearse goes by.
#BarnOwls were often seen as bad omens. They were used to predict the weather.
However in the North it was seen as lucky to see an owl.

NEW PAPER: A scientific consensus: the impacts of roads and human access on #grizzlybear and what we can do to fix the problem.

researchgate.net/publication/32…
Firstly, I'd suggest checking out the report just to view the amazing graphic design by @kate_sciart:
The story is simple, and compelling.

👉There are nearly 1 million km of resource roads accessing grizzly bear habitat in BC and AB. For reference, the earth is only 40,000 km in circumference.

👉See graphic for why this is bad for bears
