#Regram #RG @350org: After the UN's IPCC published its critical report on 1.5˚C last Monday, thousands sprung into action all over the world. Thankfully, many people around the world, not paralyzed, but motivated by the latest science, showed over the past week that they’re willing to step up to this challenge, and take targeted political actions, together, to enact meaningful change. Through a range of tactics, they’ve brought a strong, pointed message to decision makers: 1.5˚C means no more support to the fossil fuel industry, in any form. #1o5c #fossilfree #keepitintheground #climatechange

#Regram #RG @AmazonFrontlines: Cost is one of the greatest barriers to getting kids into the classroom in the Amazon. Even though public school is free in Ecuador, schools supplies, transportation and uniforms can be a daunting financial burden on families. In indigenous communities, children are invited to wear culturally traditional uniforms to school once a week. Although women have been sewing these uniforms by hand for generations, the government required families to buy these traditional uniforms from outside manufacturers. Moreover, the uniforms don’t reflect cultural differences between one community and another, and often the design itself isn’t accurate. A group of Kofan women decided to take matters into their own hands. They started a women’s sewing cooperative in the community of Dureno and are pushing the government to hire them to produce the traditional uniforms for the next school year. Kofan women have been taking part in intensive sewing workshops organized by the cooperative and have set their sites beyond just producing uniforms for their children— they are beginning to make clothing for the whole community! #amazon #amazonlife##AmazonRainforest #indigenousrights #indigenousresilience#indigenousrising#forestguardians #resistance#indigenousresistance#culture#indigenousculture#culturaindigena#indigenouswomen#womenleaders

#Regram #RG @wwf: Large amounts of the Arctic are currently covered in ice - whether sea ice or glacial ice - but this will change, with climate change causing the region to become a wetter, warmer, less predictable place... Unless countries take urgent action to cut greenhouse gas emissions further, the effects of a warming Arctic will continue to be felt around the world. Rising sea levels, changes in climate and rain patterns, increasing severe weather events, and effects on fish stocks, marine mammals and bird populations...

#Regram #RG @guardian: We have 12 years to limit a climate change catastrophe, a scientific report has announced today. Following devastating hurricanes in the US, record droughts in Cape Town and forest fires in the Arctic, the report makes clear that climate change is already happening and has upgraded its risk warning. At the current level of commitments by world leaders, we're on course for a disastrous 3C of global warming. The authors of the report are refusing to accept defeat though and believe that the increasingly visible damage caused by climate change will shift opinion.

#Regram #RG @rainforestalliance: Did you know that there are rainforests right in the United States? 🌲 The Hoh Rain Forest in Washington state holds a web of interdependence that teaches us a lesson that we at the @rainforestalliance take to heart: We base all our work in the knowledge that everything is connected, and that therefore, protecting forests & improving the livelihoods of rural people benefits us all.⁣ Find out more in my article about the beauty of connection in the magical Hoh Rain Forest by clicking the link in our bio or checking out today’s Stories! ⁣#RainforestAlliance #Interdependence #HohRainForest #OlympicNationalPark #PNW #ExplorePNW #OptOutside #FindYourPark #FollowTheFrog #WednesdayWisdom📸: @lilylandes

#Regram #RG @earthjustice: Huge victory for #Yellowstone grizzly bears! Safeguards were reinstated, after a judge ruled that the Trump administration’s decision to strip Endangered Species Act protections from the population was illegal. "This is a victory for the bears and for people from all walks of life who come to this region to see the grizzly in its natural place in the world." - Tim Preso, Earthjustice Managing Attorney Grizzly 📸: @thomasdmangelsen #wilderness #wildlifephotography #grizzlybear #naturephotography #nature #adventure #animals #earth #earthpix #nogrizhunt

#Regram #RG @leonardodicapriofdn: There are only a few weeks left until governments from around the world meet to decide the fate of the Antarctic Ocean. We need every country at this meeting to agree to create an Antarctic Ocean Sanctuary, the largest protected area on Earth.
The Sanctuary would create a safe haven for Antarctic wildlife like penguins to recover from the pressures of pollution and overfishing, and help safeguard against growing threats associated with climate change, which all put the future of this fragile region at risk.
But it will only become a reality if all governments feel the momentum of a truly global movement calling for Antarctic protection.

#Regram #RG @cnn: This shocking drone footage shows the devastation left by the earthquake and tsunami that hit Indonesia on Friday. The 7.5 magnitude earthquake and 3-meter-high (10 foot) waves killed hundreds.

#Regram #RG @conservationorg: Worldwide, the ocean is changing rapidly. The forces of climate change, acidification and overfishing are putting enormous pressure on our oceans — and on the human populations who depend on their resources. The challenge of tackling these changes — which, if left unchecked, will affect us all — is as urgent as it is enormous. But every Goliath has its David. For the threats to our oceans, that David just might be Kiribati — a tiny island nation roughly half the size of London — where former President Anote Tong conceived the Pacific Oceanscape, an unprecedented effort among Pacific island nations to collaboratively and sustainably manage nearly 40 million square kilometers of vital ocean.

#Regram #RG @leonardodicapriofdn: Today is #SaveTheKoalaDay. #Koalas are faithful to their home ranges, which are rapidly being destroyed by urbanization, highway upgrades, mining, deforestation, infrastructure, wildfires, and drought. With a massive increase in immigration sending Australia’s population to 25 million in less than 9 years, coastal native forests, homelands of koalas and other forest-dependent species are being eradicated to accommodate the upsurge in growth.
