Our Grandchildren Will Not Experience Flora and Fauna

Flora and fauna such as that on the Galapagos Islands will not be there for our grandchildren to enjoy. Animals and plants right across the world need to be preserved, not just tiny regions. Populations are taking more land that used to be protected for building purposes.

galapagos archipelago isn't just glorious immaculate and fragile yet in addition novel in our reality numerous individuals make a decent attempt to safeguard this captivated place guaranteeing the islands a national stop and the encompassing ocean a marine hold is as of now an incredible exertion really it is as of now a standout amongst the most ensured archipelagos on the planet despite the fact that this is very cool it unfortunately must be said that as of now 5 of the first greenery fauna doesn't exist any longer and dangers to the astonishing nature in the galapagos still exist this implies protecting this regular gem in the pazific sea is still more than essential associations help with this honorable undertaking as well as galapagos occupants and visit administrators watch out for the valuable and you can and will partake in the preservation when going by the galapagos too initial a speedy refresher to why we have to save those charmed islands you in all likelihood definitely know – or will know by the second you google „galapagos – that those islands with all their untamed life inland and also submerged is stunning so it would be

a disgrace to simply give this a chance to vanish from our earth – by what other method would you be able to demonstrate to your awesome grandchildren your not a liar with amazing photoshop-aptitudes when enlightening them regarding your one of a kind galapagos travels yet the things which make it that vital to act now are the dangers which follow up on the galapagos archipelago for instance a considerable lot of the galapagos winged animals like the enormous elegant gooney bird the sensational red and blue-footed boobies and the charming galapagos penguin go after fish well anglers do as such as well and with us people getting increasingly „successful in our angling the galapagos flying creatures endure similarly and did you realize that a plastic pack submerged looks like top notch jellyfish according to our adorable tortoises and that eating plastic sacks can without much of a stretch execute them getting us to one more of the dangers rubbish however most diffucult to stay away from and thusly extremely undermining are remote plants and creatures like the slope blackberry rats and parasitic creepy crawlies coming purposefully or accidentally with our pontoons to the galapagos they spread quickly and imperil endemic creatures and plants by eating their nourishment or eating them furthermore to this environmental change and atmosphere occasions like el niño debilitate the islands and their

untamed life a ton since the warmed water is less nutritious numerous fish and flying creatures discover way less nourishment supply which influences them to starve or reduce their multiplication for those and more reasons the archipelago officially lost a portion of the animal varieties tomás de berlanga may have seen in 1535 when the islands were found possibly the most exceedingly terrible day in galapagos history on the off chance that you get the opportunity to ask the creatures from that point forward people going to the archipelago misused it in the more established history of galapagos whalers and privateers were utilizing monster tortoises as living meat supply on their vessels likewise well known charles darwin – who had the peculiar propensity to attempt the meat of each and every creature he examined – experimented with on tortoises iguanas and different galapagos creatures while visitiing the archipelago in 1835 however we can hurl a moan of help since today numerous measures are taken to save the creature and home grown tenants of the archipelago an enormous part in the protection issue is contributed by various associations expressly established to safeguard the galapagos archipelago you can basically separate the associations into the individuals who work in the archipelago and the individuals who fund-raise to help them the ones fund-raising like the galapagos conservancy gc and the galapagos protection trust gct work to expand society's consideration on the galapagos archipelago and the need to save it since there are now numerous exceptionally qualified individuals taking a shot at the conservation of the galapagos the most productive route is to concede them money related help that is the reason they for the most part center around gathering pledges some of those fundamentally raising money associations reached out to likewise discovered their own ventures like enhancing nearby training concerning protection as non-benefit associations accepting the gifts and utilizing them to save the archipelago by numerous activities and research the world untamed life subsidize wwf and the charles darwin fundation cdf can be named the wwf for instance helps having an eye on the sensitive archipelago so nobody can annihilate it by illicit angling and other shrewdness deeds facilitate they need to actualize ecotourism so when you visit galapagos you will do the minimum damage conceivable to its perfect biological community the cdf works in close collaboration with the ecuadorian government and the galapagos national stop directorate since 1959 they have the permit to do look into and different undertakings on the galapagos having their heart at the charles darwin explore station in the event that you need to find out about their work a visit over yonder will be very instructive further measures are taken by the ecuadorian state occupants and in addition visit administrators did you realize that any exercises that may prompt the elimination of an animal categories or devastation of condition is entirely illegal by ecuadorian law and that reusing works very decent on the galapagos the natural waste on the islands is treated the soil in that spot all the glass-items in galapagos are reused just on the islands and utilized as a feature of clearing stones with regards to terms of vitality the tenants of the captivated islands likewise go clean they execute an ever increasing number of sun oriented plants and wind turbines additionally the anglers who prior were such an extraordinary risk to the earth now begin to choose their prey more reliable when for instance angling for lobsters they do whatever it takes not to get and if so discharge the little youthful lobsters and also female ones with eggs as of now the littlest tenants of the galapagos are educated in school about jeopardized species and how to save them on the off chance that you begin getting desirous that there are individuals who can truly call this heaven their home there is likewise an awful side to it the tenants' lifes are managed in practically every viewpoint in the event that they need to purchase an auto they require a consent on the off chance that they need to work a pontoon they require an authorization on the off chance that they need to amplify their home they require an authorization notwithstanding remodeling a house – needs authorization and the majority of them never acquire that consent yet what's terrible for the general population is useful for the nature only 3 of the islands is permitted to be occupied this gives 97 of the islands just to the creatures and plants to develop unreservedly the visit administrators and vacationers going to the islands additionally need to take after numerous controls so as to help protecting the archipelago the voyage ships need to utilize desalinization frameworks and biodegradable cleansers and shampoos when going to an island you will allways need to wash your shoes not to style up for boobies and iguanas but rather to ensure you don't convey any plant seeds to the island this guarantees no outside plants settle on another island and undermine neighborhood plants doesn't need to be said that you should keep your rubbish in your knapsack the visit guides work not just as guide and money box of insight yet in addition as spies for the sake of nature at whatever point they see a drop in for instance the penguin populace or any visitor making hurt any creature they will report this to the galapagos national stop you see that there are

Mystery Tanami Egg is Not of the Night Parrot

Mystery egg of the Night Parrot in Tanami Desert?
A mystery egg was found in the Tanami Desert of northern Australia 30 years ago. Many latched on to this specimen as being from the Night Parrot, thought to be extinct. DNA from the egg was compared to DNA of Night Parrot specimens in the Queensland Museum. The Brown Quail was found to be the "mother" of the Tanami egg.
Night Parrot
All hope was not lost, however. In 2013 the Night Parrot was found to be still with us. A small population was discovered living in Western Australia, far away from Queensland. Much has been leaned about the environmental requirements for the rare bird's survival.

This shows that human hope is very strong. We will attribute links to things that are very weak. The egg does have unusual characteristics: it is sand white, not like the quail egg which is pale but speckled brown. It is pointed at one end though, typical of the quail.

Neanderthals and Denisovans Are in Heaven

Anthropology: Adam and Eve hominids in the Garden of Eden.
Humans were not alone on the evolutionary path. There would always be at least one more type of hominid existing nearby until the last 13,000 years (Hobbits). If the number of chromosomes was very close then fertile offspring were possible. The case for neanderthal closeness is still not yet known for sure. Some make bold claims about humans having neanderthal genes, but note that we did have a common ancestor.
"This is the Garden of Eden love, from the volcano God."
Take it with a pinch of salt about us being Neanderthal, Denisovan, human hybrids. This is fairytale stuff. Neanderthals were mainly in Europe and Denisovans were for the most part in southeast Asia. This would mean that humans from Africa would be genetically pure. However, the Neanderthal gene chains are also in them. Perhaps these genes are common to most hominids.

Only a few decades ago many scientists loudly proclaimed that people came out of Africa to populate the world only 80,000 years ago. This has now been pushed back to 200,000 years. When humans moved into Europe 40,000 years ago they did not have the largest brains. Neanderthals were hands down winners. Indeed, Homo erectus did draw and carve. And stone tools was old technology for 3 million years before the present.

Humans are not special. We did get down to a few dozen survivors at one time. It is just good luck for us that we are here and Neanderthals are not. Furthermore, perception of a God is not unique to humans. Burial practices go back 400,000 years. If there is an afterlife, expect to see a some Neanderthals and Denisovans walking around in heaven.

Beached Beaked Whale in Australia

Many animals have not been seen for a long time. Indeed, it is not known whether they have become extinct. Some, of course, live in places not usually visited by humans. Recently a beaked whale was washed up on a beach Australia. It is rare and lives deep in the sea.

The actual species cannot be verified by manual examination of the body, Part of the body will be sent to the Australian Science Museum in Sydney for DNA tests and X-ray scans to determine the correct species.

Not much is known about beaked whales because they live so far down in the sea. Only stranded and beached specimens have been found. They do come to the surface to breath but do not linger there for very long.

Many scientists have never seen a live beaked whale. A beaching of this kind is very rare indeed. Parts of the body will be thoroughly examined to shed more light on how the mammal lives.  We will never know everything about fellow animals.  The more we know the better.

Orange-Bellied Parrot About to Become Extinct

It's a tough time for the orange-bellie. This species of parrot is about to become extinct. It is estimated to have five years left to live. A few years ago there were 70 pairs. Now only 50 birds remain. The last species of bird to go extinct in Australia ceased its existence 70 years ago.

For the most part, people don't seem to care. However, there are more close to extinction. A fight ensues to keep the orange-bellie alive. In 1984 the Orange-Bellied Parrot (OBP) Recovery Team was created to monitor and protect the bird. A protected breeding program was established in south-west Tasmania. Fifteen years of drought has seen the birds' supply of seeds dwindle to almost nothing. Water has been allocated for irrigation and piped away from the region.

A last throw of the dice involves catching 10 pairs then breeding them in a caged area. This kind of action is unusual. It would be expected that eggs be taken from nests of wild birds, with hatching done in an incubator then hand feeding. This way more eggs would be laid when the initial eggs are taken away.

Once wild birds are taken from the wild they will always be domesticated. Learning from older birds ends.  There is no way that knowledge of feeding grounds can be passed on.

The Demise of Species Will Have to be Prioritized

Not much can be done about saving endangered species when the great majority of people "don't give a damn". Like global warming many just do not want to hear the truth. Money is not forthcoming for conservation. Stopping animals from going extinct is only being done on a piecemeal basis. We have to choose what to save.

This really means that the blame for the loss of some animals lies solely with Mankind. Just who is to decide the fate of creatures is not yet known. It will have to be bodies that receive funding for such purposes. They are probably doing the selection process as we speak. If what is to be saved and what is to be lost was publicly known there would probably be an outcry - everyone has their favorites.

More funding is the answer of course. Whether times be good or bad giving money for conservation has never been popular. Other things seem more important. It is really inevitable that prioritizing what goes extinct will occur. The global warming issue shows that people only care about their present welfare. Environmental damage continues.

Fossilised Eggshells Are Ideal for Extracting DNA

Jurassic Park is getting closer to reality. Australian scientists have managed to get DNA from fossilised eggshells of extinct birds. The Team warns though that bringing ancient creatures back to life is a long way off. Particles of fossilised eggshells from Australia, New Zealand and Madagascar were used in the research.

A target species was the Moa bird which lived in New Zealand into the 18th century. Another was the Elephant Bird which went extinct in Madagascar during the 17th century. Older birds were also worked on: the New Zealand Duck, Australian Owl and an Emu which was 19,000 years old. Work on older fossils did not come up with usable DNA, but the relatively recent ones did give promising results.

Techniques used were the usual reduction of samples and polymerase amplification. These were very short pieces of DNA obtained from minute samples. Eggshells were found to be even better than bones and hair for storing DNA.

Mammoth Cloning Still Not Possible

We have heard so much about how scientists are going to clone a mammoth. For many this idea remains "pie in the sky" - a lot of talk and no action. There is plenty of mammoth raw material around to do tests on. The problem is getting good DNA that can be cloned.

Scientists are jumping up and down again with the recent find of a frozen mammoth in Siberia. They say this time their will be "living cells". This is very optimistic. The new mammoth will probably be like all the others. Only partial DNA will be found. Even though bone marrow has been identified this time, cloning is a long shot. No living cells have so far been found in any extinct animal, as far back as 10,000 years when mammoths roamed the Earth.

There are problems in analyzing human DNA even though the human genome is known. The complete DNA of mammoths has not yet been determined. A prize is offered by the X Prize Foundation for the first cloned extinct animal. Scientists can hope I suppose.

Scientists Are Studying New Zealand's Extinct Moa Bird

It seems we can study what animals looked like even though they are extinct. Australian and New Zealand scientists are studying prehistoric feathers to find out what birds were like. DNA has been obtained from the extinct Moa bird of New Zealand from feathers 2,500 years old. Moa are thought to have been still alive 1200 years ago It was 8 feet tall and could not fly. Material has been gleaned from three types of Moa: the stout legged; the heavy footed; and the upland Moa.

Somehow they have worked out that wing feathers had speckled white tips. This was to camouflage the bird from predators. The very large Haast eagle once existed that preyed on them. It is claimed that because the plumage of other flightless NZ birds is dull with speckled tips this idea is valid.

The scientists plan to get feathers from the end of the quill and further down the quill to compare coloration. It is hoped the findings will enable researchers to correctly reconstruct life-like models of extinct birds.

Tasmanian Tiger Did Not Fill the Evolutionary NIche of a Dog

It was believed that the Tasmanian Tiger perished in mainland Australia due to the dingo taking over their habitat. New findings show the dingo did not directly compete with the marsupial dog. They had different ways of getting their food.

Dingos were brought to Australia from Asia in recent times. It is not native to Australia. The demise of the Tasmanian tiger on the larger part of Australia 3,000 years ago was coincidental. Settlers in Tasmania feared their cattle and sheep would be slaughtered so they eradicated the quite timid animal in the early twentieth century.

Dingoes are wild dogs that run for long periods running down their prey. Tasmanian tigers were not distance runners. They ambushed sick and young animals. The tiger's skeletal structure was more like cats than dogs, particularly the elbow joint which was feline in character. The dingo has elbows that lock, while the marsupial dog had a flexible joint. This undermines the theory that the Tasmanian tiger filled the evolutionary niche open in Australia due to the absence of a native dog.

New Prehistoric Crocodiles Found

A new type of crocodile now extinct has been found in northern Africa. It had three sets of fangs like wild boar tusks for killing other animals. Another kind of crocodile was found nearby. This one used a flat, wide snout to catch fish. A third species of crocodile also located close by was only three feet long. This had "buckteeth" for eating plants. It was a rich find with two other known kinds of crocodile being dug up there.

The National Geographic Society sponsored the successful project. The new crocodiles show that the region had unique animals 100 million years ago. much different than in surrounding regions. These reptiles could run along at quite a fast pace then dive into the water and swim off. Unlike modern crocodiles which have legs on the side of their bodies these had longer legs set underneath. Luckily there were no people around for them to chase and eat.

The three new species are as follows:

1) BoarCroc (Kaprosuchus saharicus) 20 feet in length with three pairs of fangs sticking out of the side of their mouths like a warthog.

2) PancakeCroc (Laganosuchus thaumastos) again 20 feet long with shorter legs, laid in wait for fish grasping them with spiked teeth set in flat wide jaws in a head 3 feet long.

3) RatCroc (Araripesuchus rattoides) 3 feet from nose to tail, had buckteeth and dug for plants and grubs.
