BAN BOTTOM TRAWLING

BAN BOTTOM TRAWLING ON SEAMOUNTS

Our oceans are being plundered for profit by the fishing industry.

We’re calling for the Government to ban bottom trawling on seamounts – underwater mountains that are renowned hotspots for biodiversity.

These are the ‘kauri forests of our ocean’ and it’s up to us to protect them, both at home and way out to sea.

BAN BOTTOM TRAWLING ON SEAMOUNTS

Ministers Nash and Sage: I demand that the NZ Govt bans bottom trawling on seamounts and similar deep sea features, and stop issuing permits for bottom trawling in international waters.

SIERRA CLUB — MASSIVE MILKWEED RESTORATION COULD HELP SAVE THE MONARCH BUTTERFLY — PLANET EARTH MACRO WORLD group

MILKWEED RESTORATION

Common milkweed isn’t a particularly finicky plant—it has “weed” in its name for a reason and can be found growing on roadsides, empty lots, and old fields. But over the last two decades, Asclepias syriaca, which is primarily found in the Midwest and eastern United States, has disappeared from most agricultural landscapes. Along with it, the population of the iconic migratory monarch butterfly, Danaus plexippus plexippus, which relies on the plant for reproduction, has also crashed, so much so that it is being considered for endangered status.

According to researchers, 1.3 billion stems of milkweed have disappeared from Midwestern farmlands over the last 20 years. This has led to an 80 percent crash in the migratory monarch, which winters in the mountains of Mexico and breeds in the central and eastern United States during the spring and summer. Since hitting an estimated high of 682 million monarchs in 1997, the species dropped to just 42 million in 2015. According to another study, milkweed in and near cropland in Illinois, prime monarch habitat, has dropped by 95 percent over the same period—representing a 50 percent drop in the total milkweed population.
