Tiny Tortoise Reunites With Family A Month After Getting Lost "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

A little tortoise named Herman is now safe and sound back at his home in Cambridge, England after over a month on the run.

On July 6, Herman was outside in the garden playing with his family. They turned around for one minute, and the little tortoise had vanished.

His mom, Lyndsay Ward, searched the neighborhood far and wide. She put up posters, put out pleas on Facebook and called friends to spread the word about her lost shelled friend but no one had seen Herman anywhere.

Days turned into weeks, and weeks turned into a month until one day, Ward heard something peculiar out in the garden. She was heartbroken after many weeks without him, but didnt want to give up hope.

I heard this scratching noise, and knowing the sound tortoises make, I just knew it was Herman, she told Cambridgeshire Live.

Ward and her partner Matt were instantly drawn to a pipe that sticks out above the ground in the garden. Theyd searched it previously, but figured it was far too small for Herman to have climbed into.

Thats just where he was and had been for the past 28 days.

The pair started to rip up the patio and start digging, desperate to rescue Herman as soon as possible. They soon called the local RSPCA for backup, and an officer rushed over right away to help.

Fight to protect the worlds most threatened ape goes to court "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

JAKARTA A battle to save the worlds most endangered great ape has intensified as conservationists lodge a lawsuit and collect over a million signatures against a planned hydroelectric plant in Sumatra, Indonesia. At the heart of the issue is the future of the Tapanuli orangutan (Pongo tapanuliensis), a species that was only described last year but is already teetering on the brink of extinction. Its habitat in the Batang Toru ecosystem continues to be fragmented by infrastructure projects, including a planned $1.6 billion dam and hydroelectric power plant underwritten by Chinese state loans. In the latest salvo in the battle, the Indonesian Forum for the Environment (Walhi) has filed suit against the North Sumatra provincial government for approving the project. The lawsuit seeks to revoke the government-issued environmental permit for the projects developer, PT North Sumatra Hydro Energy (NSHE). The lawsuits underlying arguments are that the project carries a high environmental risk, and that NHSE made a series of administrative errors when acquiring the permit, according to Ronald Siahaan, Walhis litigation manager. On the first point, Ronald said, the site of the proposed dam is along a tectonic fault, which raises the risk of catastrophic damage from earthquakes something that Walhi says was overlooked in the projects environmental impact assessment document. Ronald cited the case of a village, Aek Batang Paya, next to the project site, where he said we can see that the asphalt road there keeps cracking. Theyve paved the road with asphalt over and over again, but

Report finds APP and APRIL violating zero-deforestation policies with wood purchases from Djarum Group concessions in East Kalimantan "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

JAKARTA Paper giants Asia Pulp & Paper (APP) and Asia Pacific Resources International Holdings Limited (APRIL) are under fire for allegedly purchasing wood cut down from natural forest in Kalimantan, the Indonesian part of the Borneo Island, which if true constitutes a violation of their landmark no-deforestation policies. A new report by a coalition of NGOs has found that both companies purchased wood from timber producer PT Fajar Surya Swadaya, which has cleared nearly 200 square kilometers (77.22 square miles) of natural forest in its 614.7 square kilometers (237.33 square miles) of concession in East Kalimantan, since 2013. The report also found that APP purchased wood from another forestry company, PT Silva Rimba Lestari, which has cleared more than 120 square kilometers (46.33 square miles) of natural forest in its 880 square kilometers (339.76 square miles) of concession in East Kalimantan, during the same period. Both Fajar Surya Swadaya and Silva Rimba Lestari are majority owned through holding companies by members of the Hartono family, founders of the Djarum Group, according to official company profiles provided by the government. The NGOs came into the conclusion after combing through the Indonesian governments wood utilization reports, which contained the detail of the source of the wood that companies purchase. When we looked at the reports, we found companies that were not listed by APP as independent suppliers nor first-party mills, Syahrul Fitra from NGO Auriga, a member of the coalition, told Mongabay. And then we traced the activities of the companies,

Scientists call on California governor to OK carbon credits from forest conservation "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

A group of prominent scientists is calling on California governor Jerry Brown to incorporate tropical forest conservation into the states cap-and-trade regulation ahead of next months Global Climate Action Summit, which is being held in San Francisco. The letter, signed by 20 scientists from a range of institutions, highlights the climate change mitigation potential of tropical forests, which lock up vast amounts of carbon in their vegetation and soils. The best science points to an important part of the climate change solution that you are uniquely positioned to unlock: tropical forests, the scientists write. These carbon- and species-rich ecosystems could deliver up to a fourth of the carbon emissions reductions needed by 2030 to avoid dangerous climate change. Slowing the deforestation and degradation of tropical forests, the source of as much as one fifth of global emissions, while allowing damaged forests to recover is one of the most cost-effective, near-term steps towards a zero net carbon budget globally. Deforestation and forest degradation is the largest source of greenhouse gas emissions from human activities after power generation. California has been mulling the inclusion of tropical forests in its cap-and-trade regulation, which was authorized by the Global Warming Solutions Act of 2006 (AB32), for a decade. During that time, the state has been developing a tropical forest standard in consultation with experts and using feedback from a set of forest conservation pilot projects run under Governors Climate and Forests Task Force, an initiative involving leaders from states and provinces in Brazil, Colombia,

Komodo protesters say no to development in the dragons den "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

JAKARTA Locals and activists have denounced plans to build tourism infrastructure in Indonesias Komodo National Park, a string of sun-kissed islands best known for their resident giant lizards. Developers PT Segara Komodo Lestari (SKL) and PT Komodo Wildlife Ecotourism (KWE) have already pocketed building permits for the parks three larger islands, Padar, Rinca and Komodo. The latter two are home to the Komodo dragon (Varanus komodoensis), the worlds largest living lizard and a threatened species on the IUCN Red List. PT SKL, which obtained its permit in December 2015, plans to build a restaurant and a dragon sightseeing facility on Rinca. PT KWEs permit, dating back to September 2014, is for accommodation on Padar and Komodo islands. But residents of West Manggarai district, the administrative region that covers the park, have called for the plans to be scrapped and the permits revoked. The local government, together with the national government and tourism businesses, must maintain Komodo National Park as a conservation zone to ensure tourism thats environmentally friendly and free from exploitation and commercialization, Rafael Todowela, who heads the West Manggarai Community Forum to Save Tourism (Formapp Mabar), said at a protest earlier this month. Conservation is to protect the Komodo dragons, not investors, he added. A view of Padar Island from one of its highest points. Image by Basten Gokkon.
