i'd like to know if the situation in the amazon is as bad as the newspaper say it is or whether there is some actual progress there.also if you got any infos on the wildlife there dont hesitate to post it there
>>3022172>progress in third world countrieslol
>>3022172it says that brazil has refused to total a permit to build in the amazon
>>3022174well i thought it would be the case given the enormous international focus on the areai would have expected ngos and lobbies to act
the situation in the countries that tend to cry a lot about 'muh rainforests' is much worse, biodiversity loss of 70%+ in some cases, in my country it's 85%, aside from shitty grass lands and even shittier forests with next to no undergrowth we've got almost nothing left.yet every campaign to 'save the planet' is catered towards helping brownies in third world shitholes.
>>3022182>"Hurr durr the amazon is overrated guys"
>>3022221>hurrr durrr send funds across the border without fixing what's within in.
>>3022172Man, that river dolphin is real goddamn ugly. Are there any nearly as good looking as a bottlenose, or are all river dolphins that disgusting?
>>3022497It doesn't turn you on?
>>3022499The OP pic? No. I don't make any claims about this pic, though.
>>3022497yeah botos are not exactly attractive, they’re still wonderful animals though, they have unmatched echo location, better than most other cetaceans
>>3022229>duurrrrwet's just fix 85% of biodiversity loss in deweloped countries first, THeN work on preventing damnage
>>3022595Ah, spoken like a true net negative taxpayer.
>>3022172I'm going to stay in tarapoto in 12 days. I'll post pics and vids afterwards.
>>3022172that guy looks breddy happy :--DDDHe makes me feel happy :D
>>3022182you can do bothreforestation in your country and protection of the existing forest+investements in vertical agriculture to pull the people there out of poverty and prevent them from further cutting the forest?
>>3022182>>3022595>>3022677i say ngos plus states should create a transborder amazon natural park and increase the penalties ffor poachers/woodcutters there
>>3022497i think they all look like thisi mean those still alive
>>3022172Conservation International and Partners Announce Restoration Effort Equal to the Size of 30,000 Soccer FieldsRio de Janeiro, Brazil (September 15, 2017) – Conservation International (CI) is taking part in a massive reforestation effort in the Brazilian region of the Amazon. The official announcement happens today at the "Rock in Rio 2017" global music festival held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
>>3022757The project is the result of a partnership between CI, the Brazilian Ministry of Environment, the Global Environment Facility (GEF), the World Bank, the Brazilian Biodiversity Fund (Funbio) and Rock in Rio's environmental arm, "Amazonia Live." The multimillion dollar, 6-year project will restore 73 million trees in the Brazilian Amazonia region by 2023. Spanning 30,000 hectares of land, the equivalent of the size of 30,000 soccer fields and nearly 70,000 acres, the project is the largest tropical forest restoration in the world. The endeavor will also help Brazil move towards its Paris Agreement target of reforesting 12 million hectares of land by 2030. "This is a breathtakingly audacious project," said Dr. M. Sanjayan, CEO of Conservation International. "Together with an alliance of partners, we are undertaking the largest tropical forest restoration project in the world, driving down the cost of restoration in the process. The fate of the Amazon depends on getting this right — as do the region's 25 million residents, its countless species and the climate of our planet."
>>3022758"A new chapter is being written for the Brazilian Amazon with this initiative. The Amazon is our greatest asset and vital to the well-being of people not just in Brazil but on the entire planet. Protecting the Amazon is not something we should think in the future - we have to do it now," said Rodrigo Medeiros, vice president of CI Brazil. "The task is challenging but we are working in partnership with other organizations and connecting different objectives towards the same goal: the Amazon."The Amazon rainforest is home to the richest biodiversity of any ecosystem on the planet, yet it is rapidly vanishing with increasing global demand for resources. The priority areas for the restoration effort include southern Amazonas, Rondônia, Acre, Pará and the Xingu watershed. Restoration activities will include the enrichment of existing secondary forest areas, sowing of selected native species, and, when necessary, direct planting of native species. so there's this but i dont know how advanced the project is
>>3022497This one has a cute face
>>3022497Looks don't really matter is ass deep murky rivers where you can't even see unless you echolocate or have giant whiskers or some shit.
it'll all be farmlands in 8 years, the new president even made sure to lower the budget of the conservation agency and pretty much wage war against NGOs.
>leaders of third world countries don't give a fuck about environmental conservation>first world countries just want to explore the third world resources while pretending they care abou the environmentIt's fucked m8
>>3024028shit i'm sure there's a way to save a bit of it
>>3022751>transborder amazon natural parkYou gringos buy timber from illegal logging https://www.greenpeace.org/brasil/blog/madeira-ilegal-da-amazonia-chega-impunemente-a-europa/Meanwhile, some of the brazilian indigenous people sell their land to loggers.
>>3022172Over 50% of all forests are gone and more is being destroyed every minute. It'll be gone in 10 years and the world as we know it won't take much longer to follow.>>3024154Ignorant consumers will be the final nail in the coffin, yeah.
>>3024167>more is being destroyed every minute.the amount of trees is actually increasing rather than declining.
>>3024167>IgnorantThe foreign companies knew the timber was illegal, they just don't care
>>3024174>Investors demand replanting bigger every year because demand for lumber is so high and having a 30 year plan for continued growth ensures predictable market behavior.Based capitalism.
