The Pledge  

   Conservation

We are the earth, through the plants and animals that nourish us.We are the rains and the oceans that flow through our veins.

We are the breath of the forests of the land, and the plants of the sea.
We are human animals, related to all other life as descendants of the firstborn cell

Due to the pressures of population and technology, environments are often degraded and sometimes permanently

.According to a study published several years ago in the journal 'Science', few places on our planet have been untouched by modern humans. Satellite images taken from thousands of kilometres above the Earth reveal a world that has been irrevocably changed by human land use over the past decades. From Arctic tundra to primeval rainforest to arid desert, our natural world has been fragmented by ever expanding towns and cities. This is recognised and some governments place restraints on activities that are causing environmental degradation. We must encourage others to do the same. Please click on the tree to sign the Declaration

       .

The need to supply food, fibre, fuels, shelter, and freshwater to more than six billion people is driving the wholesale conversion of forests, wetlands, grasslands, and other ecosystems

.

Activism by the conservation movement has created awareness of the various environmental issues, but there is not full agreement on the extent of the impact of human activities, and the protection measures undertaken are often criticised.

Institutions now offer courses such as environmental studies management and engineering that study the history and methods of protection. It is needed to protect from various human activities, such as waste, pollution, loss of biodiversity, introduction of invasive species, release of genetically modified organisms and toxics. These are some of the issues addressed in environmental protection

.

We encourage you to speak out on behalf of endangered wildlife and encourage sustainable energy policies. Demand better funding for climate change research, and encourage corporations to do more to prevent pollution, protest the loss of forests, bush and biodiversity

.

Please fight to have dangerous toxins banned and encourage your elected officials to make saving and protecting the environment a top priority. Support your environmetal advocates and join conservation organisations to make your voice heard on important conservation issues which will make a real difference, and stay informed

Anti Whaling activists waiting in the Pacific Commercial whaling is banned under an international treaty, but Japanese whalers are able to get around that by killing whales for what they say are scientific research purposes. The anti-whaling campaign is underway for the year, and Sea Shepherd activists say they won't tolerate a single whale being killed. Hear the Captain of the 'Steven Irwin' this morning from his ship at an undisclosed location in the Pacific Ocean reporting on the state of their campaign now, please help and support them.

Save the Barrier Reef Gladstone Queensland

 

Study just released It shows that more than half of Australia's ‘Great Barrier Reef’ has disappeared over the past 27 years. Scientists in Townsville have found the loss of coral is caused mainly by cyclones and the crown-of-thorns starfish. Coral bleaching is also to blame, and they warned that the rate of the reef's decline has been higher than previously thought. It says if current trends continue, the coral cover could halve again by 2022, and it may lose the biodiversity which originally gave the ‘World Heritage Area’ it’s listing

WA plans to kill sharks Western Australian Government has announced it will catch and kill sharks that come too close to popular beaches.  Premier Colin Barnett has announced a $6.85 million for “shark mitigation" strategies. It includes $2 million to be allocated to track and destroy sharks that pose a risk to swimmers. Wilderness Society says destroying sharks close to shore will make no long term difference. Peter Robertson says the number of attacks is a serious concern but pre-emptive culling is not the answer. It’s a total ridiculous waste of money as the sea is the shark’s home and not ours
