The presidential declaration bans fishing, mining, and tourism development in the reserve and on the islands, creating the largest no-fishing area of North America. more It has had a dramatic history and was almost lost to extinction.Now, this Critically Endangered bird is bouncing back with record breeding success in Morocco in 2017.The preliminary findings of the EIA confirm the presence of globally endangered Ganges Riv...more A recent study by IUCN, International Union for Conservation of Nature and the Leibniz Institute for Freshwater Ecology and Inland Fisheries (IGB) reveals nearly 60 percent of iconic freshwater species such as crocodiles, hippos, sturgeons and river dolphins are classified as threatened on The IUCN Red List of Threatened Species and lacking adequate protection.more Neonicotinoid pesticides pose severe threats to ecosystems worldwide, according to an update to the world’s most comprehensive scientific review of the ecological impacts of systemic pesticides released by IUCN's Task Force on Systemic Pesticides (TFSP) this week.The second edition of the Worldwide Integrated Assessment of the Effects of Systemic Pesticides on Biodiversity and Ecosystems synthesises more than 500 studies since 2014, including some industry-sponsored studies. more Gland, Switzerland, 14 September 2017 (IUCN) – North America’s most widespread and valuable ash tree species are on the brink of extinction due to an invasive beetle decimating their populations, while the loss of wilderness areas and poaching are contributing to the declining numbers of five African antelope species, according to the latest update of The IUCN Red List of Threatened Species™.Latest data show that globally reefs have a chance of long-term survival if warming is limited to under 2o C, though even this may be too little too late for many reef systems.“We are on the doorstep of a world without coral reefs and the only way to avoid this is through the full implemen...
more Limiting global warming to below 2°C in line with the Paris Agreement provides the only chance for the survival of coral reefs, warns David Obura, Chair of the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN)’s Coral Reef Specialist Group, writing today in the journal Science.
Blue carbon ecosystems are unique in that they sequester and store carbon dioxide (CO2) at much higher rates per unit area than terrestrial forests – up to six times more than undisturbed tropical rainforests. more Natural protected areas like forests, beaches, mountains, scrublands and river ecosystems provide a wide variety of benefits to both people and nature.
Many of these ecosystem services are deteriorating due to temperature increases, unpredictable rainfall, the arrival of invasive species and other climate change phenomena.
Well-known for its importance as a breeding site for water birds, Pulau Dua was established as a nature reserve in 1937. more Gharials are a unique crocodilian threatened with extinction and with wild populations that have decreased precipitously due to habitat destruction and accidental killings by fishermen when caught in nets.
Mangroves act as a natural barrier between land and sea and prevent coastal erosion. The Bangladesh Forest Department and IUCN Bangladesh, in collaboration with Bangladesh zoo authorities, have piloted a gharial exchange programme to initiate captive breeding in the country.
