Les dernières girafes de l'Afrique de l'ouest

A une cinquantaine de kilomètres de Niamey au Niger, dans le région de Kouré, au coeur des formations naturelles à combretacées, vivent les dernières girafes de l'espèce pérelta de l’Afrique de l’Ouest. Ces animaux jadis victimes du braconnage suscitent aujourd'hui l'inimitié des agriculteurs et sont désorvais jalousement protégées par les villageois  

Journée internationale de la Diversité Biologique edition 2017

Le thème de cette année est la biodiversité et le tourisme durable.

  • So You Want To Save Humanity? Manage Nature Like A Business
    [released on: 30/04/2020]
    In the wake of the COVID-19 crisis, any economic stimulus measures must safeguard nature or governments risk exposing humanity to further pandemics.
  • Wildlife through the window: what readers have spotted during lockdown
    [released on: 30/04/2020]
    We asked Guardian readers living in cities and towns across the world to share their images of the wildlife they can see from their homes. You answered in your droves, from Canada to Cardiff, and here are some of the best.
  • 'Sweet City': the Costa Rica suburb that gave citizenship to bees, plants and trees
    [released on: 30/04/2020]
    "Pollinators were the key," says Edgar Mora, reflecting on the decision to recognise every bee, bat, hummingbird and butterfly as a citizen of Curridabat during his 12-year spell as mayor.
  • These key investments can build resilience to pandemics and climate change
    [released on: 30/04/2020]
    As the coronavirus pandemic continues to wreak havoc, the world's energies are rightly focused on efforts to contain the virus and manage the economic fallout. Yet, in the background, the climate emergency remains as urgent as ever.
  • Parallel threats of COVID-19, climate change, require 'brave, visionary and collaborative leadership': UN chief
    [released on: 30/04/2020]
    And against the backdrop of threatened lives, crippled businesses and damaged economies, the UN chief warned the Petersberg Climate Dialogue in Berlin that the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are also under threat.
  • How modelling articulates the science of climate change
    [released on: 30/04/2020]
    To imagine earth without greenhouse gases in its atmosphere is to turn the familiar blue marble into a barren lump of rock and ice on which the average surface temperature hovers around -18ºC. Such a planet would not receive less of the sunlight which is the ultimate source of all Earth's warmth. But when the energy it absorbed from the sunlight was re-emitted as infrared radiation, as the laws of physics require, it would head unimpeded back out into space.
  • Insects populations have been declining for nearly 100 years, study reveals
    [released on: 30/04/2020]
    When did you last see a glow worm? Most likely, quite some time ago. Depending on how young you are, you may have never seen one at all. Those light-emitting insects, Wordsworth's "earthborn stars", have been declining in the UK for decades. That means that scientists now see them in fewer places, and even in those pockets where conditions are right for them, there are fewer of them to be found.
  • Remote cameras are revealing the human impact on rainforest species in Africa
    [released on: 30/04/2020]
    Tropical rainforests are the world's richest land habitats for biodiversity, harbouring stunning numbers of plant and animal species. The Amazon and the Congo basins, together with Asian rainforests, represent only 6 per cent of earth's land surface, and yet more than 50 per cent of global biodiversity can be found under their shade.
  • The Executive Director's Statement to the 150th Meeting of the Committee of Permanent Representatives
    [released on: 30/04/2020]
    In these unusual and tragic times, I am indeed grateful that we are able to connect virtually to continue the business of environmental governance. While the efforts of all your capitals are correctly focused on preventing human suffering, as parts of the world move slowly towards recovery, the environmental agenda remains one of our most powerful insurance policies in preventing future global pandemics like COVID-19.
  • Nature strikes back
    [released on: 30/04/2020]
    The earth we abuse and the living things we kill will, in the end, take their revenge; for in exploiting their presence we are diminishing our future. ~ Marya Mannes Each species represents a thread in the closely woven fabric of Nature. For centuries, we humans have prided ourselves on being the most 'evolved' species. Superior intelligence and technological capability have bred this arrogance.
  • 5 vital projects that will continue in 2020
    [released on: 30/04/2020]
    The good thing about BirdLife is that, as a truly global organisation, we're already great at staying connected, even when we're thousands of miles apart. Here are just a few of the ways our work will carry on over the coming months, even if it's from our living rooms.
  • Management of natural assets is key to sustainable development: Inclusive wealth provides the way forward
    [released on: 30/04/2020]
    Sovereign nations typically measure economic success in terms of GDP (income) but this approach is risky as it fails to track and measure the impact of this on nature. Inclusive wealth, on the other hand captures financial and produced capital, but also the skills in our workforce (human capital), the cohesion in our society (social capital) and the value of our environment (natural capital).
  • Deep history in western China reveals how humans can enhance biodiversity
    [released on: 30/04/2020]
    Jiuzhaigou National Nature Reserve is one of China's most popular tourist attractions, drawing more than five million visitors per year to the sparsely populated mountains of north-western Sichuan. The reserve has been home to farmer-herders for thousands of years, but to conserve the biodiversity and scenic quality of the reserve, park policies prohibit residents from farming, herding and wood cutting.
  • A "Wild" Tale of Two Nations
    [released on: 30/04/2020]
    "The coronavirus pandemic has made abundantly clear that if life is to thrive on this Earth, human and nonhuman, we need cooperation at all scales-global, regional, binational, within a nation, interstate, and in our local communities. And we need to learn how to coexist with and have compassion for our nonhuman relatives-and acknowledge in the midst of this pandemic that bats are not our enemies."
  • Namibia's environmental laws
    [released on: 30/04/2020]
    THE Oxford Dictionary describes the environment as "the surroundings or conditions in which a person, animal, or plant lives or operates". Humankind has been reliant on the environment for its existence for as long as humans have been living on earth. In numerous ways, the future survival of humankind will depend on how we take care of our air, soil, rivers, oceans, animals and plants.
  • Deadlier outbreaks could follow coronavirus pandemic if people don't stop destroying nature, say experts
    [released on: 30/04/2020]
    Rampant deforestation, uncontrolled expansion of agriculture, infrastructure development and exploitation of wild species have created a 'perfect storm' for the spillover of diseases from wildlife to people.
  • The more we lose biodiversity, the worse will be the spread of infectious diseases
    [released on: 30/04/2020]
    Do biodiversity losses aggravate transmission of infectious diseases spread by animals to humans? The jury is still out but several scientists say there is a "biodiversity dilution effect" in which declining biodiversity results in increased infectious-disease transmission.
  • Ocean biodiversity has not increased substantially for hundreds of millions of years, study finds
    [released on: 30/04/2020]
    A new way of looking at marine evolution over the past 540 million years has shown that levels of biodiversity in our oceans have remained fairly constant, rather than increasing continuously over the last 200 million years, as scientists previously thought.
  • Citizen science project aims to reveal secret life of bees
    [released on: 30/04/2020]
    In these unprecedented times, we are all spending much more time at home and in our gardens. And, now that spring has well and truly arrived, it's the perfect time to get reacquainted with one of our country's busiest workers - the bee.
  • Study helps arboreta, botanical gardens meet genetic diversity conservation goals
    [released on: 30/04/2020]
    In a ground breaking study, an international team of 21 scientists led by Sean Hoban, Ph.D., Conservation Biologist at The Morton Arboretum in Lisle, Illinois, evaluated five genera spanning the plant tree of life (Hibiscus, Magnolia, Pseudophoenix, Quercus and Zamia) to understand how much genetic diversity currently exists in collections in botanical gardens and arboreta worldwide.
  • Algae tasked with producing COVID-19 test kits
    [released on: 30/04/2020]
    Researchers at Western and Suncor are teaming up to use algae as a way to produce serological test kits for COVID-19 - a new process that overcomes shortfalls of existing processes while saving money.
  • Catch rate is a poor indicator of lake fishery health
    [released on: 30/04/2020]
    Fishery collapses can be difficult to forecast and prevent due to hyperstability, a phenomenon where catch rates remain high even as fish abundance declines. In a recent Canadian Journal of Fisheries and Aquatic Sciences study, researchers conducted a whole-lake experiment to reveal the causes of hyperstability in recreational fisheries. Fish habitat preferences were found to leave them vulnerable to overexploitation.
  • Some of the latest climate models provide unrealistically high projections of future warming
    [released on: 30/04/2020]
    A new study from University of Michigan climate researchers concludes that some of the latest-generation climate models may be overly sensitive to carbon dioxide increases and therefore project future warming that is unrealistically high.
  • Irrigation expansion could feed 800 million more people
    [released on: 30/04/2020]
    Water scarcity, a socio-environmental threat to anthropogenic activities and ecosystems alike, affects large regions of the globe. However, it is often the most vulnerable and disadvantaged populations that suffer the severest consequences, highlighting the role of economic and institutional factors in water scarcity. In this way, researchers generally consider not only the physical constraints but socio-economic determinants as well.
  • L.A. County's biodiversity is on the map, thanks to UCLA researchers
    [released on: 30/04/2020]
    Located in a global hotspot for biodiversity, Los Angeles County is home to more than 4,000 distinct species of plants and animals, including 52 endangered species - more than any county outside of Hawaii. And with 1 million animal and plant species facing extinction due to human activity, according to the United Nations, efforts to better understand the factors that shape biodiversity in Los Angeles could help shape global conservation efforts.

  • Naaya Event 2016 Business and Biodiversity Forum

    Selon le rapport 2016 du Forum économique mondial sur les risques liés à la biodiversité,  la perte de biodiversité et de l'effondrement des écosystèmes sont parmi. Les 10 risques majeurs rencontrés par le secteur privé, en termes de leur impact potentiel. A la lumière d'un tel effondrement systémique il est possible, et dans le meilleur intérêt des entreprises, du gouvernement, de prendre en compte la valeur des services éco systémiques et la biodiversité dans les systèmes productifs. L'intégration de la biodiversité dans la planification et l'exploitation des secteurs productifs implique l'intégration de la conservation et l'utilisation durable de la biodiversité dans les plans d'affaires, au-delà des stratégies de responsabilité sociale des entreprises. Cette approche novatrice sera abordée à 2016 Forum d'Affaires et Biodiversité (B & BF 2016), qui aura lieu en parallèle au segment ministériel de haut niveau de la 13e Conférence des Parties à la Convention sur la diversité biologique (COP13-CBD) des Nations Unies.
