BIRD OF THE WEEK — BLUE-BILLED CURASSOW — PLANET EARTH BIRD WORLD group

PLANET EARTH BIRD WORLD has over 1,600 members and over 131,000 photos and videos. 

BIRD OF THE WEEK

The Blue-billed Curassow is one of the birds closest to extinction in the Americas. It belongs to a group of large, ground-dwelling tropical birds that are closely related to turkeys. Some say the birds are just as tasty as domestic turkeys, and unfortunately, harvesting the birds and eggs for food is an ongoing problem.

Blue-billed Curassow populations have also declined dramatically due to habitat loss. Huge areas of lowland forest in the bird’s former range have been razed for livestock and crops, illegal coca farms, oil extraction, and mining. Although the species has been seen infrequently at other sites in Colombia, the Alliance for Zero Extinction has recognized a small portion of the Magdalena Valley as most critical for the curassow’s survival. This appears to be home to one of the last viable populations for the species.

Yemen’s ‘marginalized ones’ endure hunger, displacement

Conflict and displacement have compounded centuries of discrimination against Yemen’s Muhamasheen minority, denying access to jobs, documentation and humanitarian aid.

AMRAN, Yemen – It was past noon, the time when Mariam would normally start preparing lunch for her children. But today, she and her extended family of 14 have not yet had their breakfast; the cold firepit in the corner of their tent an unwelcome reminder that they last ate more than a day ago.

SIERRA CLUB — WARMING LAKES WORLDWIDE COULD MEAN MORE TOXIC ALGAL BLOOMS — PLANET EARTH IN BLACK AND WHITE group

All PLANET EARTH groups supports:

Sierra Club* United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) * American Bird Conservancy

PLANET EARTH IN BLACK AND WHITE has over 3,800 members and over 173,000 photos and videos.

A new study of algal bloom activity in dozens of freshwater lakes around the world provides an answer: For the past 30 years, lakes nearly everywhere have been experiencing more frequent and severe toxic algal blooms—and a changing climate is one reason why.

Researchers at the Carnegie Institution for Science used satellite data collected over the past three decades to examine large freshwater lakes across six continents. They searched through more than 72 billion data points to identify statistically significant patterns in algal bloom intensity and found that the severity of algal blooms has increased in over two-thirds of the 71 large lakes studied across 33 countries.

SIERRA CLUB — SANTA MONICA MOUNTAINS TASK FORCE — PLANET EARTH LANDSCAPES group

All PLANET EARTH groups supports:

Sierra Club* United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) * American Bird Conservancy

PLANET EARTH LANDSCAPES has over 7,900 members and over 345,000 photos and videos.

The Sierra Club’s Santa Monica Mountains Task Force (SMMTF) was created in 1972. Our initial efforts were to bring attention and support to the Santa Monica Mountains as a great natural, cultural and recreational resource.

The SMMTF has long played an active role in campaigning to purchase significant open space in these mountains. We have worked to elect political leaders who fight to obtain new parkland and who endorse the highest level of protection for natural resources.
