Human impacts on Biodiversity | Biology for All | FuseSchool
Biodiversity is the variety of life. There are thought to be 8.7 million species on planet Earth. And, as we saw in this video, biodiversity is of utmost importance to humans. The loss of one key species can have a detrimental impact on many levels; from other species of animals to plants to the physical environment, as shown by wolves. Human activities are reducing biodiversity. Our future depends upon maintaining a good level of biodiversity, and so we need to start taking measures to try and stop the reduction. In this video we are going to look at how humans are negatively impacting biodiversity. As the world population has grown from 1.5 billion in 1900 to nearly 7.5 billion people today, unsurprisingly the land use has changed. Habitats have been destroyed in favour of agriculture, forestry, fishing, urbanisation and manufacturing. Unsurprisingly, habitat loss has greatly reduced the species richness. Habitat fragmentation has also meant that populations have been split into smaller subunits, which then when faced with challenging circumstances have not been able to adapt and survive. After habitat loss, overharvesting has had a huge effect on biodiversity. Humans historically exploit plant and animal species for short-term profit. If a resource is profitable, we develop more efficient methods of harvesting it, inevitably depleting the resource. As is currently happening with fishing and logging. The exploited species then needs protection. The difficulty is that the demand then outstrips the supply, and so the resource value rises. This increases the incentive to extract the resource and leads to the final collapse of the population. As happened with whales, elephants, spotted cats, cod, tuna and many more species. Human activities are polluting the air and water. Toxic discharge into the water from industrial processes unsurprisingly has a negative effect on the local aquatic species by killing, weakening or affecting their ability to reproduce. Phosphorous and nitrogen in fertilisers run-off agricultural fields and pass into rivers. These surplus nutrients cause algae to bloom, which then starves other aquatic species of oxygen and light, causing them to die. Acid rain is one consequence of humans polluting the air. This causes lakes and water bodies to become more acidic, killing off fish, molluscs, amphibians and many other species. Huge impact humans have had on planet Earth is the introduction of alien species to habitats. In fact, it is estimated that on any given day there are 3000 species in transit aboard ocean-going vessels! Alien species can cause problems in a number of ways… pause the video and have a look. Throughout the earth’s history there have been periods of rapid climate change, that have led to mass extinction events. We are currently in a period of fluctuating climate, but nearly all scientists agree that human activities, like burning fossil fuels, are speeding up global warming. We don’t know how much climate change is going to affect biodiversity in future, but it’s predicted to be huge. Loss of sea ice and ocean acidification are already causing huge reductions in biodiversity. Climate change alters temperature and weather patterns, with changing patterns of rainfall and drought expected to have significant impacts on biodiversity. So there we have a selection of human-related impacts on biodiversity. There are much more, which a quick search on the internet will bring up.

Why is biodiversity so important? - Kim Preshoff
View full lesson: http://ed.ted.com/lessons/why-is-biodiversity-so-important-kim-preshoff Our planet’s diverse, thriving ecosystems may seem like permanent fixtures, but they’re actually vulnerable to collapse. Jungles can become deserts, and reefs can become lifeless rocks. What makes one ecosystem strong and another weak in the face of change? Kim Preshoff details why the answer, to a large extent, is biodiversity. Lesson by Kim Preshoff, animation by TED-Ed.

Conservation post addresses continuing threats to Chiquibul Forest
For the latest news across Belize, visit: http://edition.channel5belize.com/ The Chiquibul forest is being pillaged by gold panners and cattle ranchers, who illegally cross into the national forests to ply the lucrative trade. Friends for Conservation and Development has been monitoring the illicit activities, but its resources are spread thin to contain the exploitation of the natural resources. This Monday, a conservation post was officially inaugurated in the Caballo area; nine kilometers north of the Caracol Archeological Site, to manage and protect the vast expanse. The initiative was funded by the Protected Areas Conservation Trust (PACT) and the Environmental Management Fun. News Five’s Duane Moody returns to the Chiquibul and files the following report.

Why is soil so important?
Fertile, healthy soil is essential for agriculture and food security. Without it we couldn’t grow the food we need to live. But it’s at risk from many different threats: erosion, degradation, poor soil management, desertification and urbanization. Syngenta works with growers to help them restore the fertility of the soil they farm. We’ve committed to improve the fertility of 10 million hectares of farmland on the brink of degradation.

North State Farming and the Natural Resources Conservation Service–Audrey Denney on the Issues
Agriculture is a critically important industry to our region and our state. Agriculture in the north state has every potential to grow, diversify, become more profitable, and simultaneously restore the environment. I grew up farming, participating in 4-H and FFA, and I earned my degrees in agriculture. I know firsthand that our producers take risks that most business folks wouldn’t imagine. Farmers and ranchers work long hours amidst one of the most volatile economic eras for commodities in modern history. They are society’s chief stewards of the land, and they produce the bounty of amazing local nutrient-dense foods that we in the northstate are so blessed to enjoy. They are our heroes and I want them supported as such. The farmers and ranchers who manage our soils are our best hope in combating climate change. I believe that climate change is the single largest threat facing humanity and life as we know it. Whether it has been designing educational tools to help policymakers understand and monitor greenhouse gas emissions, teaching our local university students about reducing food waste, or working with smallholder farmers in Central America and West Africa, I have spent my career as an ag educator focusing on making agriculture better for all those involved, from the producer to the consumer. My priorities for agriculture include: Create opportunities to further differentiate our amazing north state growers with premiums in the marketplace Support growers with local processing and necessary infrastructure to increase production of value-added products, reduce food waste, and keep more dollars and jobs local to our district Reduce the regulatory burden on farmers and ranchers by supporting innovative projects that increase conservation and environmental outcomes while streamlining regulatory processes Invest in expanded technical assistance to farmers to implement conservation practices through increases of funding to the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) and base funding for resource conservation districts Partner with federal, state, and local agencies to invest in migrant farmworker housing to provide critical support to the agricultural labor force by increasing overall worker health, dignity, and retention Promote grazing as an important management tool for our public lands and support continued access to public lands Promote soil-based carbon credits and carbon reduction markets to mitigate climate change while creating new revenue streams for producers Cultivate the region as a true agritourism destination Develop opportunities for young farmers and ranchers in their ability to access land and capital. Additionally, provide training and implementation-support for sound succession planning Invest in a soil-based approach to carbon drawdown that will simultaneously improve environmental health, reduce chemical inputs, maintain or improve farm productivity, and increase our resilience to droughts and other disasters caused by climate change.

Endangered Species: Worth Saving from Extinction?
Species are going extinct at crazy high rates. Does it matter? TEACHERS: Get your students in the discussion on KQED Learn, a safe place for middle and high school students to investigate controversial topics and share their voices. https://learn.kqed.org/topics/5 Species are going extinct at crazy high rates. Does it matter? Find out in this video. ABOVE THE NOISE is a show that cuts through the hype and investigates the research behind controversial and trending topics in the news. Hosted by Myles Bess. *NEW VIDEOS EVERY OTHER WEDNESDAY* SUBSCRIBE by clicking the RED BUTTON above. Follow us on Instagram @kqedabovethenoise What does it mean when a species goes extinct? A species goes extinct when there are no longer any more of that species left on earth. That species is gone forever aka extinct. What is the 6th mass extinction? Throughout earth’s history there have been five major mass extinction events-- where a large percentage of species died out. Scientists estimate that we are in the middle of the 6th mass extinction event right now, where species are dying out at 1,000 to 10,000 times baseline extinction rates. Why should we care if a species goes extinct? Moral and ethical arguments to try to prevent species extinction include reasons like all life has a right to be here, or that we owe it to our grandchildren to protect species so they can see them in the wild. Species also impact the ecosystems they are a part of; plants and animals depend on each other in an ecosystem for things like food and shelter, so if one species dies out, then that could affect other species in an ecosystem. For example sea otters live in kelp forests and eat sea urchins, and when they were hunted almost to extinction the sea urchin population increased and ate all the kelp-- destroying the kelp forest habitat. What are ecosystem services? Ecosystem services are the collective benefits we get from ecosystems. Ecosystems provide us with a lot of great things like natural resources and water, and are home to living things we depend on-- like insects that pollinate our crops and decomposers that get rid of our waste.

What is Biodiversity & Its Importance? Environmental Science for Kids | Educational Videos by Mocomi
https://mocomi.com/ presents: What is Biodiversity & Its Importance? What is biodiversity and why is it important? Biodiversity is the variety of plants and animals living on Earth, carefully playing an important part in maintaining the balance of nature. The diversity of species is not distributed throughout planet because life depends on many factors including geography. There are thousands upon thousands of plant and animal species on earth. They are all continuously evolving and adapting to the environment around them. Biodiversity is the variety of animals and plants found on this planet including the geographic locations they are found in. This concept is what makes our planet different from others in our solar system and being able experience all these variations first hand is what makes the earth so marvelous. Think of the earth as a perfectly tuned machine with sprockets, springs, and oil (plants, animals and climates) all working to maintain the balance of nature. The diversity of species is not evenly distributed throughout the planet because life depends on factors such as temperature, altitude, precipitation, soil, the presence of other species and geography, since tropical regions support more life than polar regions. Biodiversity is important to sustaining life on earth because it prevents any one species from throwing the balance of nature out of order. For example, snakes are not a welcome presence in our lives. We fear them and kill them because of it. One of the many things that snakes feed on is rats and if we were to kill of all the snakes, we would end up having a terrible rat problem. Therefore humans should to everything in their power to conserve the natural variation of snakes to ensure it doesn’t get an unnatural rat problem. For Example – Tropical regions support more life than polar regions. Watch this video on how we have to preserve this diversity to sustain life on Earth.

Its about a journey to conserve Delhi 's invaluable natural resources, putting science to an effective use, and inventing a scheme of living thats one of its kind in the world, and can define our future course of action to conserve the living planet. A group of citizens gathered to save the pristine ridge forest in southwest Delhi when a large part of 6.4 Sqkms area was opened for constructing 13 5-star hotels. It started in 1995 and we managed to save more than 500 acres of Ridge forest that today stand protected as Aravali Biodiversity Park. In 2007, we took up the cause of Yamuna floodplains when Commonwealth Games village was being built on it. After 5 years of struggle the Yamuna floodplains stand protected for its water recharge and biodiversity functions. No further Constructions allowed. Tens of projects in pipeline were cancelled. In 2011-12, revival of water bodies in Dwarka was taken up. Two water bodies have been revived. Science has been effectively used to demonstrate the value of the natural resources under threat and the economic and monetary benefit that can be derived if these resources are conserved. It's realized that conservation is a troubled ideal abused on most occasions for being only so. Here , a new scheme of living has been evolved, we call it 'conserve and use.'

What we're doing to transform our planet's food
The food system is the single biggest threat to nature today It uses most of our natural resources, with 69% of all our water and 34% of our land. It has caused 75% of deforestation, 30% of topsoil erosion and contributes at least 24% of greenhouse gas emissions. It is not creating healthy people or a healthy planet. 821 million people are hungry while 1.9 billion are overweight or obese. The food system has caused 70% of biodiversity loss and has led to 93% of all our fish stocks being fished to their limits or beyond. And yet, we don't even eat all the food we produce - around one third of it is lost in the supply chain or thrown away. Find out more here: http://wwf.panda.org/our_work/food/ About Our Planet: Our Planet is a groundbreaking, four-year collaboration between Netflix, Silverback Films and WWF.

Island Conservation - Preventing Extinctions | 2019
Islands represent the greatest concentration of both biodiversity and species extinctions. Island species are often evolutionarily distinctive and highly vulnerable to novel disturbances, particularly invasive species. Invasive species, which primarily spread around the globe via human transportation systems, are a leading cause of extinctions on islands and biodiversity loss globally. As the threats of extinctions are highest on islands, so are our opportunities to save species at risk. We must act now to save island species before they are lost forever. We envision a future in which our world’s most at-risk island animals, plants, ecosystems, and communities are thriving, safeguarded from damaging invasive species, and thus more resilient to other emergent conservation threats.

What resources should I protect in the tourism environment?
Learn about the impact of tourism on the environment, sustainable tourism, the different types of nature tourism that exist and the strategies that you can apply to contribute to the protection of the environment. Tourism involves the movement of large numbers of passengers. In 2020 there will be more than 1600 million arrivals in Europe. This journey has negative consequences on the environment. Negative consequences for the environment: - Impact on soil and spaces: urban speculation. - Impact on social and intangible assets: Changes in customs or traditions - Impact on the use of resources: Unhealthy environment; Concentration of people; Loss of biodiversity What direction should I take? Principles sustainable tourism: - The benefits will be the common good of the local community. - Search for environmental prestige - Improve environmental quality - Manage and plan tourism development without creating socio-cultural and environmental problems. - Exploit resources without compromising their future Different types of nature tourism - Tourism in Nature: Nature is only the circumstantial setting for the activity - Nature Tourism: Uses environmental elements for sporting, recreational or adventure activities. - Ecotourism: Nature is the main reason for the trip. Awareness with natural and cultural values Resources. "Biosphere Reserves": UNESCO establishes Biosphere Reserves, linking a number of geographical areas that are representative of different habitats on the planet (ecosystems undisturbed by human action). Threat. "More tourism in protected areas": The most protected spaces (National and natural parks, nature reserves, sites of community interest, etc.) have become the main destinations for nature tourism, due to their conservation guarantees. Protection. "European Charter": The European Charter for Sustainable Tourism in Protected Areas (EUROPARC 2007) aims to encourage good practice by recognising protected areas, which are meeting agreed requirements. Good business practices 1. Connect your business with nature: Meet the clients in your environment; Link your offer to the environment; Promote your offer and the environment 2. Increase your company's environmental management: Develop your own route map; Make the clients participants 3. Support the local economy: Use your installation while respecting the local environment; Support local causes; Contribute to the local economy.

Vietnam's Biodiversity part (1/2)
The Socialist Republic of Vietnam finds itself at a critical juncture in current efforts to survey and identify its rich floral and faunal resources, and to conserve them for coming generations. Stretching more than 1,650 kilometers north to south along Tonkin Bay and the South China Sea, Vietnam encompasses three major biogeographic zones, four Endemic Bird Areas (EBAs), and a wide variety of unique habitats. Because of its size, location, and the historical interaction of complex topographic, climatic and ecological factors, the country has high levels of both species diversity and endemism. Vietnam is currently recognized as having a significant proportion of rare and endemic species from both regional and global conservation perspectives. Vietnam's people and natural resources face many of the same pressures and threats as other developing countries at the start of the 21st Century. A growing population of almost 80 million people, the flowering of an open market economy, and accompanying increases in deforestation rates and the wildlife trade threaten the preservation of Vietnam's unique biodiversity. Today, many of Vietnam's native plants and animals are threatened or endangered by these combined pressures: the 2000 IUCN Red List of Threatened Species ranking of countries with the largest number of threatened species placed Vietnam 6th, 15th and 18th for reptiles, mammals and birds, respectively. Vietnam is strongly committed to the conservation of its biodiversity and natural resources in the face of these various challenges. This commitment includes: •The maintenance and continued development of a widespread protected area network of National Parks, Nature Reserves, and Cultural and Historical Sites. •Training a cadre of dedicated biologists to record and study Vietnam's biodiversity. •Gathering and maintaining basic collections of plants and animals for training and research. •Long-term institutional commitment to collaboration with foreign scientific and conservation organizations. Despite increasing national and international attention, both Vietnamese species diversity and conservation efforts rest in a precarious place. Much of Vietnam's rich and unique biological diversity is only now being explored. In the past decade new genera of mammals have been discovered in Vietnam and Lao PDR, and several new species of rodents and birds are currently being described. The extent to which both known and unidentified biodiversity is conserved by the current protected areas network is insufficient: only 4% of Vietnam's total land area is currently protected. Detailed information about the distribution of biodiversity and endemism in Vietnam is needed for making realistic decisions on existing protected area boundaries and the design and placement of new protected areas. Continued research into Vietnamese biodiversity and recommendations for additional conserved areas are urgently needed. Project Objectives The Center for Biodiversity and Conservation at the American Museum of Natural History (CBC-AMNH) and the Missouri Botanical Gardens (MBG) have joined with the Institute of Ecology and Biological Resources (IEBR) and the Vietnam National University (VNNU) in Hanoi in a multi-year collaborative research, education and training effort to measure the extent and distribution of Vietnamese species diversity and to identify conservation priorities and potential new protected areas. The principle objective of the project is to develop a core of knowledge and expertise in biodiversity and conservation necessary to protect and manage Vietnam's most important and highly endangered ecosystems. To this end the CBC and its North American and Vietnamese collaborators conducted extensive multiple-taxa biotic inventory surveys in three different biogeographic regions of Vietnam. These areas and the specific study localities within them were chosen because they were historically under-surveyed, potentially of high biodiversity and conservation value, and represented ecosystems either not currently part of the protected areas network or inadequately represented within it. In addition to research aimed at measuring Vietnamese biodiversity and endemism, we are concentrating our efforts on education and conservation initiatives increasing the capacity of scientific research facilities, and making a commitment to training students in both Vietnam and North America in evolutionary biology, conservation biology and systematics.

Chiquibul: the Important Role of the Rangers & Soldiers
For the latest news across Belize, visit: http://edition.channel5belize.com/ Illegal cattle ranching is just one of the threats to the Chiquibul forest; the area is remote, but it is rich with the most precious natural resources. On a daily basis it is plundered and the human and financial resources to manage the forest are slim. Rangers of Friends and Conservation are on duty doing as much as humanly possible, but they are out matched by those who illegally enter to harvest the resources. In Part-two of the Chiquibul series, Hipolito Novelo and Darrel Moguel, along with the F.C.D. and the B.D.F., head to the Caballo Conservation Post which is just one point five miles from the borderline. The story highlights the important role that the rangers and soldiers play in protecting the natural resources of the forest. F.C.D. is operating on a budget of about seven hundred thousand dollars which is forty percent of what is actual needed if they are to carry out their mandate in a more effective way. Here is the story.
