Melinda McCurdy
They imagine what it is, but they have no idea what conservation actually entails. It was amazing to see the paint layers revealed in real time. It was just a little glimpse into what we're going to learn.feedback

For instance, the most recent quote from Barack Obama is: “Well, I'm less likely to get involved in all the nuts and bolts of electioneering. In that realm, I'm much more likely to just give advice. What I am interested in is just developing a whole new generation of talent. There are such incredible young people who not only worked on my campaign, but I've seen in advocacy groups, I've seen passionate about issues like climate change or conservation, criminal justice reform, campaigns for a livable wage, or health insurance, and making sure that whatever resources, credibility, spotlight that I can bring to help them rise up.”.

Peter Dearden

It is a sort of colonialism. It is not necessary, nor appropriate, for these to be scientifically investigated overseas with no links to their place of origin.feedback

Andrew Digby

Now, he's a little more important. We can't give all of them the same level of attention, so Gulliver gets a little extra. If we're trying artificial insemination, we'll try with his sperm a little harder than his brothers.feedback

Andrew Digby

Every morning, we have a record of all the matings the day before. These birds don't have much privacy unfortunately.feedback

Andrew Digby

I've worked really hard to make sure that we do as much of this work in New Zealand as possible. It's especially important to maintain the link between genomics and conservation, and you need some contact with the host country to make sure that's implemented. People can study the genome, and get citations for their papers, but what does that mean for the species?feedback

Diedre Vercoe

We've more than tripled the population since the program officially began in 1990, and we have a young and growing population. We're on the right path.feedback

Andrew Digby

We suspect their infertility is genetic but we don't know for sure. We can look at the genome of every individual and match that against its breeding history–for females, how many eggs they lay, and for males, their sperm quality.feedback

Diedre Vercoe

I liken it to the early months of having a child. Kakapo breeding season prepared me very well for motherhood and the other way round, too.feedback

Antonio Cammisecra - Enel Green Power

The construction of Enel's first wind farm in Peru furthers our presence in the country and demonstrates our strong commitment to the Peruvian renewable energy market. Our aim in Peru is to become the leading player in renewable energy, which we consider to be essential for a sustainable development at the local and national level.feedback

Sam Purkis

If we think about protecting reefs in the future, with no-take zones and marine protected areas, we might learn about where our more sensible conservation efforts can be.feedback

Larry Sorel

For forty years, Spiderman has been an integral part of the Zoo's conservation mission and guest experience. He will certainly be missed and remembered by staff and guests alike.feedback

Hla Thein - Wildlife Conservation Society

Ecotourism encourages local fishermen to move away from harmful activities like electroshock fishing and maintain their traditional lifestyles. Dolphin conservation won't be a success without ecotourism, and ecotourism won't be a success without conservation.feedback

Paul Watson

Sea Shepherd has been down in the Southern Ocean doing what the Australian government has the responsibility to do but have refused to do, and that is upholding international and Australian conservation law.feedback

Jimmy Carter

Cece was the only person I considered for the Cabinet post of secretary of the interior, and together we made conservation history with the successful passage of the Alaska lands legislation.feedback

Jimmy Carter

Together we made conservation history. Americans are better off because of his service, and I am better because of his friendship.feedback

Kelly O'Shanassy

For a multibillion-dollar multinational to challenge such a meagre fine shows real contempt for the Queensland and Australian public. If this is their attitude now, what will it be like it they are allowed to construct a massive dirty new coalmine that would contribute to the destruction of our Great Barrier Reef and threaten our planet with more carbon pollution?feedback

Melanie McField

Oil and healthy reefs are not compatible. A spill would be an onslaught on conservation and restoration efforts, the risk is so not worth it.feedback

Euan Dunn - The Royal Society for the Protection of Birds

It's a lamentable failure of government not to have given its statutory nature conservation agencies the resources necessary to carry out a coordinated comprehensive national census of our seabird colonies. Things have got much worse since then. We are supposed to have a national census every 15 years but now that is slipping towards 20 years – just at a time when populations of so many seabirds are clearly in freefall.feedback

John Withers

But if it happens again, I'm starting to sue someone, because the act is there that you can peg mining leases for alluvials.feedback

Andrew Picone

Queensland must now move to ban the practice altogether. Unfortunately, there are many similar mines already approved. The harm caused from vegetation clearing, erosion, agricultural runoff and this archaic mining will take a massive toll on our reef, which is trying to recover from the worst coral bleaching event in history.feedback

John Withers

One of them's running into the east coast and I've had no objections against it. But as the minister said, he's got the authority to knock it off anytime he likes.feedback

John Withers

I've got four or five leases in the pipeline already and I've been a miner all my life and all my super [superannuation] coming from years ago I was ready to put into future mining leases either to sell or work myself.feedback

Rosie Shaw

Our long term aim is try to get some kind of funding for conservation work. It would be a great shame if they were allowed to fall into disrepair.feedback

Joanne Wade

The total annual energy savings would be the equivalent to turning the Drax coal plant off for eight months, or avoiding construction of 4GW of new capacity.feedback

Vincent Nijman
Anna Nekaris

The overall popularity of owls as pets in Indonesia has risen to such an extent that it may imperil the conservation of some of the less abundant species.feedback

Duncan Thomas

Shoots have taken contingency measures and have put in extra security measures to combat disruptive activities. The conduct of Chris Packham is no doubt fuelling animosity and future conflict.feedback

Lizzie Meek

With just two weeks to go on the conservation of the Cape Adare artefacts, finding such a perfectly preserved fruitcake in amongst the last handful of unidentified and severely corroded tins was quite a surprise. It's an ideal high-energy food for Antarctic conditions, and is still a favourite item on modern trips to the Ice.feedback

Manish Golder

Areas such as Sardar Shankar Road, Sadananda Road, Raja Pratapaditya Road, Hajra, Bhawanipore, and Paddapukur have some very interesting architecture. However, as a community, we fail to see value in architectural heritage. Conservation requires a more evolved and less aspirational psyche.feedback

Sidhartha Hajra

There are problems such as the migration of owners to other cities and family disputes over inheritance. Then there is the increasing encroachment by real estate developers, whose concerns are not the maintenance and conservation of these buildings. More engagement is required with the issue through a government-led intervention and civil society's participation and discussion.feedback

Robert Richardson

The scientific community is pushing back against government censorship.feedback

Jimmy Bramblett

It has become clear one of the previous administration's priority is not consistent with that of the incoming administration. Namely, that priority is climate change. Please visit with your staff and make them aware of this shift in perspective within the executive branch.feedback

Bianca Moebius-Clune

We won't change the modeling, just how we talk about it – there are a lot of benefits to putting carbon back in the sail [sic], climate mitigation is just one of them.feedback

Gail Rudge

We want to get [the gap in the wall] blocked up but the conservation laws are so strict that there's nothing we can do.feedback

Gail Rudge

I think the whole point is conservation laws were needed but now they need to be reviewed and made a little less stringent. Things need to be kept in balance - the crucial thing is maintaining the balance between our need to have a clean church without any damage and the bats' need to have somewhere to roost.feedback

Jim Liberatore

We also take conservation seriously, and dedicate programming to this issue and to anti-poaching efforts specifically.feedback

Rachel Karr

Even with my love of nature, I simply cannot understand what good it does to destroy things that were worked on 300, 400 years ago before conservation was part of daily language. Face it, we're the original recyclers, antique dealers. We have no interest in using new ivory at all. We are willing to say we aren't willing to use it to repair old ivory.feedback

Donald J. Trump

He told me off the record, he thinks he may go to $30 billion.feedback

Rick Scott

This week, an incredibly disturbing video was reported by the media showing individuals senselessly dragging a shark behind their boat at high speed. The brutality and disrespect shown to this animal is sickening and I am sure that you share in my outrage over these individuals' heinous actions.feedback

Philippa King

This is a massive own goal for Stan Kroenke. We live in a world where most people can see how brutal and shameful trophy hunting is, yet the Arsenal boss is choosing to launch his sick TV channel. Most people won't agree trophy hunting is in any way ethical, and studies have debunked claims that most blood money goes towards conservation. I'm not sure in what way an idiot with a gun against an elephant is a fair chase.feedback

Ryan Billingham

It's hard to throw a rock without hitting a wetland. It's shocking to us in its extreme.feedback

Tom Evanson

We can preserve our natural resources & help businesses create jobs, economic opportunity for the people of WI. The two aren't incompatible.feedback

Belinda Wright

The shrinking of good quality habitats and access of the animals to movement corridors are absolutely critical for India's conservation efforts and the future of its iconic mammals.feedback

Belinda Wright

Conflict is already one of the biggest conservation challenges. In India it is particularly acute because of the high human population.feedback

Philippa King

We're living in a world now where most people can see how brutal and shameful trophy hunting is, yet the Arsenal boss is choosing to launch his sick TV channel in the UK. Most people won't agree that trophy hunting is in any way ethical, and studies have debunked claims that most of the blood money goes towards supporting conservation. I'm not sure in what way an idiot with a gun against an elephant is a fair chase. Mr Kroenke could do the world a great favour by stopping peddling this kind of sickening TV and turning his focus on helping the animals he apparently likes to see killed.feedback

Lisa Britton - Chessington World of Adventures

Our remaining penguins have been moved to a secure area while we take additional measures to secure Penguin Bay, which we hope to reopen as soon as possible. We are a member of EAZA, the European Association of Zoos and Aquariums, and BIAZA, British and Irish Association of Zoos and Aquariums, both of which have strict codes of practice and ethics covering animal management, conservation, education research and operations.feedback

Lisa Britton - Chessington World of Adventures

The health, safety and welfare of our animals is the primary concern to us here at Chessington World of Adventures Resort. We are a member of EAZA (European Association of Zoos and Aquariums), and BIAZA (British and Irish Association of Zoos and Aquariums), both of which have strict codes of practice and ethics covering animal management, conservation, education research and operations.feedback

Oscar Simanto - Forest Service

People are farming without soil and water conservation structures. Restoration of lands outside forests is a must.feedback

Fran Mauer

I think most reasonable Americans can look at it and say this is excessive. The federal government has bent over backwards to work with the state and found that [federal officials] had a responsibility to preempt their rules. Now Trump wants the Parks Service to review those regulations. The American public deserves to know what's going on in Alaska with our national conservation areas.feedback

Jenifer Bosworth

We're going to be blasting them with dry ice. Which sounds harsh, but … it's a comparatively delicate method.feedback

Jenifer Bosworth

This small micro explosion … helps to blow away the surface layer that has already been cracked by the impact.feedback

Jenifer Bosworth

That's just nature. [Works of art] could stay in storage in the dark locked away, and then they could last for much longer. But that's not the objective of a museum.feedback

Jenifer Bosworth

I'm really happy with how it turned out. They're looking much more cleaned-up and happy and much better than they were.feedback

Anurag Agrawal

You get to watch this incredible biology unfold. Maybe the single most important thing we can do for conservation in general is to give people an appreciation of nature.feedback

Ruby Jane Powell

We don't want to take direct action but we are left with no choice, the government and the department of conservation have failed to protect this treasured land. It is a really popular recreation area, and the local water source is taken down-stream from the mine. In general our culture and economy is really interlinked with the eco-tourism and outdoor aspect of life in the Coromandel, and mining threatens that.feedback

Helen Ghosh

I am enormously proud of all the Trust has achieved over the past five years, with the conservation of nature and heritage at the heart of what we do and an extraordinary growth in membership, support and visits.feedback

Luke Hunter

It's possible the mother leopard retrieved the cub from what was a temporary lioness day care, but we just don't know.feedback

Tricia McCorkle

This matter was just brought to our attention, we are in early stages of discussions and are working on a resolution with DCR.feedback

Luke Hunter

This is a truly unique case. I know of no other example of inter-species adoption or nursing like this among big cats in the wild. This lioness is known to have recently given birth to her own cubs, which is a critical factor. She is physiologically primed to take care of baby cats, and the little leopard fits the bill -- it is almost exactly the age of her own cubs and physically very similar to them.feedback

Matt Canavan

It is appropriate that organisations and individuals may protest against political parties, philosophies and activities that offend them. It is not appropriate that such protests are funded by concessions from taxpayers who do not share their views.feedback

Luke Hunter

She would not be nursing the cub if she wasn't already awash with a ferocious maternal drive. It is quite possible she has lost her own cubs, and found the leopard cub in her bereaved state when she would be particularly vulnerable. It is very unlikely that the lioness' pride will accept it. Lions have very rich, complicated social relationships in which they recognise individuals–by sight and by roars–and so they are very well equipped to distinguish their cubs from others. If the rest of the pride finds the cub, it is likely it would be killed.feedback

Angelina Jolie - United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees

It is a privilege to work with N/a'an ku sê and be able to contribute to conservation in Namibia.feedback

Richard Benwell

We want to make sure that when EU law is transferred to UK law it doesn't just sit on the statute books but is actually lived and breathed in the UK. There are important principles of EU law like the polluter pays, the need to contribute to sustainable development – these are guidelines for courts but also for businesses in deciding how they behave, and for government. Transferring the letter of the law is not enough. We need the letter of the law, the spirit of the law and adherence to the law.feedback

Jeffrey Sachs

There's a lot of truth to the idea that the United States is having tremendous negative effects on global sustainable development. This is not recognized in our public discourse.feedback

Jason Baker - People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals

Bertha's life at the Manila Zoo was one full of boredom, misery and deprivation. It's a tragedy that she only realized freedom through death. This cruelty will end only when animals are no longer held as living exhibits.feedback

James Dichaves

Bertha was among the pioneer animals here. Her mate died sometime in the 1980s and the couple failed to produce any offspring.feedback

Jasmijn de Boo

The conservation of birds is very important, and possums play a role in that but they have been demonised as pests for a long time. The word 'pests' is problematic because it insinuates they are worthless objects that can be treated without care – run over, beaten, whatever. We need to get back to the idea that all animals are sentient beings and they do not deserve a cruel death – even possums.feedback

Samantha Stones

Our conservation project now reinstates Albert's original vision. Matching the yellow of the walls, restoring the beautifully decorated shell alcove with its aqua blue canopy, and seeing the Andromeda fountain with her surrounding sea monsters in working order has truly brought the terrace back to life.feedback

Rich Gilmore - The Nature Conservancy

These types of things add to the case for the conservation. Anything that highlights the value of the reef across society – and raises awareness of conserving natural assets like the reef – is a good thing.feedback

Rachel Wilshaw - Oxfam Intermón

Why would a company like Sainsbury's that has been such a massive champion of Fairtrade decide to take the trusted mark off their tea products, and in the process take power and value away from small African producers who already have so little? At a time when sustainable development and human rights are going up the corporate agenda, it's hard to follow the company's reasoning.feedback

Shi Mingde

In China, pandas are regarded as a national treasure. Therefore the breeding and conservation of these animals is a top priority for us.feedback

Dan Danahar

We've got unbelievable numbers of common butterflies such as the common blue and small blues all over the site now.feedback

Tom Brereton

There are a lot of different factors. Paving over gardens is definitely a problem but it's not the only one and probably not the biggest either. Generally there's more artificial space now in your average garden with decking and barbecue areas. River banks and roadsides are just cut down to a bowling green as efficiently as possible to save money. You'd think all the messages about wildlife verges would have got through, but it still hasn't really. Countryside services that local authorities provide have collapsed in some areas and been drastically reduced in others.feedback

Michael Blencowe

I think it has. The whole biosphere designation has helped. I always hear complaints about the council, as anywhere, but they put these butterfly banks in. They don't look great compared to rows of begonias but they are working and there are enough people in Brighton pushing for them and enjoying them. Other urban areas aren't going to be chalk grassland but just planting nectar-rich flowers will attract lots of butterflies and bees.feedback

Tom Brereton

We want to do more for butterflies in urban areas. We're looking to develop more urban projects and engage more people. Think of the ecotourism potential – people travel from Scotland to see this butterfly.feedback

Michael Blencowe

All you've got to do in Brighton is go out with a shovel and spend half an hour scraping the topsoil off your back garden and you've created one of the UK's rarest habitats [chalk grassland] in your back garden.feedback

Michael Blencowe

Right through Brighton there's as much diversity as you'll find on the remotest downland valley. Some of the most exciting sightings for our atlas came from people's back gardens.feedback

Michael Blencowe

This is quite a rare butterfly and people have it in their front gardens in Brighton. If you want to see them, you can simply stand by the Royal Pavilion.feedback

Mazie Hirono

You were a big supporter of the Land and Water Conservation Fund in your confirmation hearing. Has that changed? There are private industries that have waited for years, and suddenly the pipeline is closed.feedback

Thiago Medaglia

The data visualization from scientific studies is an important step in the struggle for forest conservation. Now, it is possible not only to visualize the impacts of deforestation in the Amazon, but also those of degradation.feedback

Gavin Shire - Fish and Wildlife Service

We have worked closely with this group of scientists as they developed this new conservation tool, and while we have not made any determinations yet, are impressed with its potential. We will be exploring further if and how we may best use it to improve the effectiveness of our recovery efforts.feedback

Karen Dalziel

I'm excited that once again we have five remarkable women to guest-edit Woman's Hour. Each has chosen issues she cares about deeply, from ocean conservation to costume design, and I'm sure they'll connect with our listeners in a warm and meaningful way. By sharing their personal interests and passions, we learn so much more about these well-known and influential women.feedback

Sarah Cook

Higher incomes do not automatically lead to improved outcomes for all children, and may indeed deepen inequalities. Governments in all countries need to take action to ensure the gaps are reduced and progress is made to reach the sustainable development goals for children.feedback

Doug Erwin

People who claim we're in the sixth mass extinction don't understand enough about mass extinctions to understand the logical flaw in their argument. To a certain extent they're claiming it as a way of frightening people into action, when in fact, if it's actually true we're in a sixth mass extinction, then there's no point in conservation biology.feedback

Nada Culver

Whatever comes out of these recommendations will give us an insight into how this administration takes its responsibilities to protect public lands and uphold conservation mandates.feedback

Kate Moomaw - Denver Art Museum

With contemporary art, any material goes. Like other museum conservation departments, we use diagnostic tools, microscopes, UV light, and infrared photography.feedback

Leonardo DiCaprio

Now more than ever, the world is looking for bold leadership at every level to tackle climate change and environmental conservation issues. I am honored to work with President Peña Nieto, who has been a leader in ecosystem conservation, to ensure the future viability of marine life in the Gulf. This action is a critical step towards ensuring that the Gulf of California continues to be both vibrant and productive, especially for species like the critically endangered Vaquita.feedback

Leonardo DiCaprio

I am honoured to work with President Pena Nieto, who has been a leader in ecosystem conservation, to ensure the future viability of marine life in the Gulf.feedback

Faye Cuevas

The Kenya Wildlife Service and many other conservation groups are doing fantastic conservation work. However, the reality is that there are other challenges – from a cyber perspective, from a global criminal network perspective – that really necessitate security approaches integrated into conservation strategies.feedback

Neven Mimica - International Development

These are challenging times. The global commitment to the sustainable development goals – to climate action, to solidarity – this seems to be wavering globally. The significance of this new European consensus on development becomes much bigger than the sum of its parts because of this global questioning of climate action and even the sustainable development goals.feedback

Brian Rutledge

Secretary Zinke should be careful not to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory when it comes to sage grouse conservation. The existing conservation plans were designed with both flexibility and scientific rigor, guaranteeing maximum buy-in from Western communities and the best chance of success for the sage-grouse and more than 350 other species that depend on this landscape.feedback

Ian Craig

This is an indication of how wildlife rangers' roles are evolving in northern Kenya. The rangers were historically recruited and trained to protect wildlife, but given the proliferation of arms, and the drought, and the massive movement of livestock across the landscape, they are now finding themselves drawn into issues that are unconnected to wildlife.feedback

Ian Craig

They are Kenya police reservists and as such they have a responsibility to help enforce law and order. Yes, that's stopping poaching, but increasingly here it means dealing with stock theft, road banditry, and helping the regular police deal with general criminality.feedback

Phil Dyke

Good conservation is about the careful management of change. Our approach at the coast is to adapt to the effects of rising sea levels and more frequent storms.feedback

Li Keqiang

China will continue to uphold its commitments to the Paris climate agreement. Step by step, and very arduously, together with other countries, we will work toward the goals set in the Sustainable Development Agenda 2030. China actively participated in this process in the past years and joined or signed every agreement concerning this.feedback

Terry Hughes

Most of the coral reef literature assumes business-as-usual emissions to the end of the century, which would result in global warming of 4, 5 or 6C. We will never get there – not because people will become more and more concerned about coral reefs – but because Florida will go under water and that will get people's attention.feedback

Terry Hughes

We tend to propose bandaids rather than dealing with the root cause of the issue.feedback

Terry Hughes

They are going to be different systems with a different mix of species but if we throw the kitchen sink at it and especially deal with climate change then we will have functioning reefs that will sustain and repair themselves and be of some use to people.feedback

Bryan Watts

It's taken 40 years to get back where we were, but it's a great success story in terms of conservation here in the East.feedback

Garry Chisholm

Her passion for the animals in her care was exceptional though her favourites were undoubtedly the cheetahs which she would refer to as her pride and joy. Rosa would raise money for cheetah conservation by actively taking part in parachute jumps and I was delighted when she approached me asking if she could use one of my pictures to promote her money raising campaign.feedback

Ted Martens - Natural Habitat Adventures

When it comes down to it, carbon offsetting is a creative way to drive funding toward great conservation projects that help the earth.feedback

Geoff Cousins

Clearly all the rumours that this loan is about to be granted are untrue. I cannot see from this evidence that there is any way this loan can be granted.feedback

Niki Rust - World Wide Fund for Nature

There are tons of species that are in desperate need of our help and which could be gone in just one or two generations. Many of the populations are so small and so isolated that it would only take a disease to wipe them out. Some of the lemurs in Madagascar are hunted because the locals believe they are evil spirits. They are als suffering from habitat loss. But there are conservation success stories. Mountain gorilla populations are increasing and we now have around 800 in the wild. Golden-mantled Tree Kangaroos also seem to be stabilising.feedback

Jessica O'Reilly

Those goals have now expired, replaced by the UN's sustainable development goals, one of which, SDG 13, is explicitly about climate change.feedback

Josh Frydenberg

It's a very complicated step, and in fact it's indeed a two-step process to remove the great white sharks from the [Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation] Act, and it will take some time and it would need to be based on scientific evidence. Any change to the listing of great white sharks would need to be based on scientific evidence. It would not be appropriate to preempt the process which involves the CSIRO studying numbers and any recommendations by the independent scientific committee.feedback

Marie-Paule Kieny - World Health Organization

If countries don't know what makes people get sick and die, it's a lot harder to know what to do about it. WHO is working with countries to strengthen health information systems and to enable them to better track progress towards the Sustainable Development Goals.feedback

Zsuzsanna Jakab - World Health Organization

Despite sustained efforts to tackle childhood obesity, one in three adolescents is still estimated to be overweight or obese in Europe, with the highest rates found in southern European and Mediterranean countries. What is of particular concern is that the epidemic is on the rise in eastern European countries, where historically rates have been lower. Ambitious policy action is required to reach the Sustainable Development Goal to halt the increase in childhood obesity. Governments must target efforts and break this harmful cycle from childhood into adolescence and beyond.feedback

Maurizio Vretenar - CERN

With our portable technology they could be made inside the hospital already. We are building something portable. We already have a collaboration with the Louvre, and with the Italians at Florence at the Italian institute for conservation of artworks. We are very careful. The intensity of particles is very low. It's not like here [CERN], there's only a few protons.feedback

Simon Cripps

The nature reserve and centre are both core parts of the local community and contribute greatly to helping DWT achieve its aims to spread the conservation message, and help people learn about how engaging with wildlife can improve their lives.feedback

Guillaume Chapron

Let the wolf decide and let people decide as well because we are sharing the landscape. It's very positive news for nature conservation. It shows that attitudes have changed and when we let nature take care of itself, nature comes back.feedback

Peter Fearnhead

Rhinos are one of the great symbols of Africa, yet they are severely threatened and are on the decline in many places across the continent due to the extremely lucrative and illegal rhino horn trade. The rhino's return to this country, however, is a testament to Rwanda's extraordinary commitment to conservation and is another milestone in the restoration of Akagera's natural diversity.feedback

John Hickenlooper

Public safety is paramount. We are assessing whether these operations were conducted in compliance with state law and the Colorado Oil and Gas Conservation Commission's rules.feedback

John Hickenlooper

But I don't think it's unreasonable for that to be public information. Some of these old wells that are abandoned, I'm not sure if people even know where the flow lines are. We'll try to go to every data source we can get.feedback

Nico Hermanu

Orangutans are rare, and an albino orangutan is even rarer. Since BOSF was founded 25 years ago, we had never before taken in an albino orangutan at our rehabilitation centre.feedback

Clare Akamanzi

We are fully prepared to welcome them (rhinos) and ensure their safety for the benefit of our tourism industry and the community at large.feedback

Jenesse Miller

We really do appreciate what our customers have done to conserve. They've pulled out their lawns. They take shorter showers. But whether we deliver one gallon or 130 million gallons, the infrastructure is the same. Many parts of the East Bay have pipes that are 90 or 100 years old.feedback

Barby Dashwood-Morris

They were scheduled to spend two-and-a-half hours but actually were here for over four and they were so very enthusiastic about how the house looked - 'even better than they hoped'. I was thrilled. Although not a professional I do 'dabble' and was responsible for all the design ideas throughout the house and it was a huge compliment to know others thought it was worth filming. Because The Priest House is over 600-years-old and Listed, I worked closely with Wealden District Council Conservation department to ensure all the plans met with their approval.feedback

Stephen Whale

There was certainly no intention to commit offences and neither were they reckless. These defendants purchased the property in 1997 in poor condition and conducted a full structural survey and asked to meet with local conservation experts in site within weeks. What happened is when building works unfolded they uncovered other issues they needed to address.feedback

Mike Joy

Pretty much anywhere in lowland New Zealand you'll find polluted waterways, and in the conservation estate, which is mostly the alpine areas, we have amazingly clean lakes and rivers.feedback

Simone Videsen

Killer whales hunt young humpback calves outside Exmouth Gulf, so by calling softly to its mother the calf is less likely to be heard by killer whales, and avoid attracting male humpbacks who want to mate with the nursing females. This migration is very demanding for young calves. They travel 5,000 miles across open water in rough seas and with strong winds. Knowing more about their suckling will help us understand what could disrupt this critical behaviour, so we can target conservation efforts more effectively.feedback

Laurie Marker

With a total population of just over 7,000 cheetahs remaining in the wild, the taking of even one cub is a threat to the species' survival. This is particularly concerning as trafficked cubs are usually removed from their mothers at very young ages – less than 3 months – which means that they have not had enough time to learn skills necessary to survive in the wild and will in most cases require life-long care. We are exceptionally pleased to be partnering with IFAW moving forward to address this important issue.feedback

Sam Stovall - Standard & Poor's

It's a pretty interesting pattern, markets get euphoric when Republicans get elected. We think there's going to be a lot of fiscal conservation and pro-economic legislation. What they find is Congress remains Congress and tends not to get anything done, . My feeling is that using a limited observation set, and knowing we've gone 14, 15 months without even a pull back, chances are good we end up seeing at least some stock market softness or a challenge in this May through October period.feedback

Patricia Tricorache

Through this week's confiscations, the Somaliland authorities are sending a clear message to traffickers that the trade in live cheetahs will not be tolerated.feedback

Michael Beck

This is a critically important study, which shows that we are not only losing living corals but also that reefs are being eroded away around the world. Effectively, seas are not just rising, but reefs are sinking and with them the many benefits they provide including flood protection to communities around the world. Their study points to why it is so urgent to act now to improve reef health through conservation and restoration.feedback

Steven Pinker

A number of species have been brought back from the brink of extinction. More land has been set aside for conservation. It's important to highlight the improvements that have been made because if you sincerely believe that we are doomed, that the world is heading for a horrific apocalypse unless we immediately take steps that we have no probability of taking, then the rational response is 'let's not even bother.feedback

Cristian Samper - Wildlife Conservation Society

Science is behind the good news and bad news about wildlife conservation . It has nothing to do with the fake news. Science is the antithesis of fake news.feedback

Reese Witherspoon

I've had the great opportunity to work with elephants in my career, and spend a lot of time in Africa with elephants. I love that they are doing so much for conservation, and helping save the elephants. We love playing these characters, and we loved being together with this great, extraordinary group of people, so hopefully it will happen. Fingers crossed.feedback

Michael Phelps

Anything he can get his hands on goes in his mouth. When he grows up we're going to teach him more about water conservation, because when you brush your teeth for two minutes and leave the water running, you waste 4 to 5 gallons of water. That number is astronomical. We basically hop in two or three times a week. Boomer loves it, he floats around in our hands trying to swim butterfly. He loves being in the water and he doesn't mind going under. He's the direct opposite of me as a kid, he doesn't like being on his back and that's how I learned to swim. He's a step ahead of me.feedback

We should have a political voice on behalf of the community because what we defend is a public asset.feedback

Daniel Gschwind

Everybody has heard of it, most people want to come and visit some time, many people report fond memories of it. In fact, we're not shy about showing visitors what it can look like. We are very committed to the conservation of the reef but we clearly also want to make sure that the information and the description of the bleaching is accurate and not deterring visitors from continuing to visit. And also, by the way, not discourage people from continuing to put the effort into conservation and reach the conclusion that all is lost, we might as well give up.feedback

Daniel Gschwind

The reef is often referred to as the canary in the mine shaft and I think we have an opportunity, if not an obligation, to encourage the global community to do the right thing not just to keep the reef alive but to allow us all to continue living on this planet, because the reef is only an indicator of what's in store for all of us if we don't get it right.feedback

Brett Clanton - BP

BP is in the process of shutting in a well at the Prudhoe Bay oil field that experienced an unplanned release of hydrocarbon. No people were in the vicinity of the well at the time of the release and there are no injuries. Crews have secured the site, the fire department is on the scene and crew members are now working to safely shut in the well. All necessary notifications have been made to state and federal regulators.feedback

They're very sensitive to weather and environmental change. So they can respond quickly to positive conservation , but they can get knocked back by the weather and the weather's been quite unpredictable really.feedback

Marc Botham

The weather at critical times of species development can cause dramatic changes in population numbers in the short term. What is of greatest concern is the regularity with which these short-term changes in recent years are negative, resulting in significant long-term declines for many species. Furthermore, this is becoming more and more commonplace for many of our most widespread and abundant species equating to large reductions in overall butterfly numbers with knock-on effects to their ecosystems.feedback

Tom Brereton

Worryingly, not even the pleasant summer weather of 2016 was enough to help butterflies bounce back from a run of poor years. The results show that butterflies are failing to cope with our changing climate and how we manage the environment. As butterflies are regarded as good indicators of environmental health this is hugely concerning for both wildlife and people.feedback

Kate Poole - Natural Resources Defense Council

Water may appear to be in abundance right now. But even after this unusually wet season, there won't be enough water to satisfy all the demands of agriculture, business and cities, without draining our rivers and groundwater basins below sustainable levels. So we still need to use every drop wisely. Being better stewards of our natural supplies is critical to securing a sustainable water future for California's people, economy, and environment.feedback

Walter Mzembi

(Our biodiversity) has been kept largely authentic, original and undisturbed with very sound conservation models that have become models for the region. I dream big, and I don't think I dream impractical. My dream for the World Cup is based on integration of strength and effort that are neighbours to Zimbabwe, like South Africa, Botswana, Mozambique and Zambia. Nothing is impossible. The current administration is too preoccupied with the self. Too inward-looking and nationalistic, to the point where they are indifferent to anything happening elsewhere.feedback

Jesus Dureza

We have already agreed on the final outcome of the talks: lasting peace and sustainable development. This is not a case of one party giving in or giving up. The road to peace is never a paved one. It will be full of bumps and bends. Let us stay the course.feedback

Walter Mzembi

Our chief product in Zimbabwe is peace and stability. It doesn't matter where the location of a wonder of the world, if it is in a conflict zone nobody will visit. Zimbabwe has a 34-year record where not one tourist life has been lost due to conflict. I say that because it is important to assure the travelling public that when they visit your country they are safe. [Our biodiversity] has been kept largely authentic, original and undisturbed with very sound conservation models that have become models for the region.feedback

The Thai forestry department proved that with protection you can not only bring tigers back, but now the western forest complex, specifically Huai Kha Khaeng, is a global model of tiger conservation. It is one of the best protected and best tiger areas left in the world. Thailand has shown that you can protect tigers and bring them back. They can do this now in the eastern forest complex as they've done in the western forest complex.feedback

Stefan Rahmstorf

Things in the Arctic are happening much faster than we expected. It is not just a problem of nature conservation or polar bears, it is about a threat to human society that comes from these rapid changes. This is because it hits us with increasing extreme events in the highly populated centres in the mid-latitudes. It also affects us through sea level rise, which is hitting shores globally. So these changes that are going on in the Arctic should concern everyone.feedback

Eric Higgs

The publication of a paper on the use of AI on conservation would have been hard to imagine 5 years ago, but we can now read it in one of the top journals in ecology. It's testament to the fact that we're looking for new ways of addressing rapid change.feedback

Bradley Cantrell

The way we think of conservation is typically to right the wrongs of humans in the environment. We're cordoning off portions of the Earth to protect it from our influence, or trying to turn back that landscape. And if we take technological solutions down that same line of thought, we get to a point where we're heavily managing ecosystems just to take the humanity out of them.feedback

Megumi Ishizuka

Here in Japan we are working on advancing goals related to women's empowerment and decent work for example. Internationally Japan has been a strong advocate for the concept of human security which is embedded in in the concept of the 2030 agenda . So based on such human-centered approach we can play a significant role in helping developing countries achieve the SDGs (sustainable development goals) especially in the areas where we have strength like disaster risk reduction and health in Africa.feedback

Cristiane Mazzetti - Greenpeace

If I get one amnesty, who knows? In another few years from now I might get another. The last government headed by Dilma Rousseff didn't issue hardly any conservation areas of demarcated indigenous territory. These are good instruments for fighting deforestation.

I commend the National Trust for its determination to work positively with its tenant farmers to achieve greater nature conservation objectives from its land. Accepting that it has much to learn from working in partnership with its tenants who are already farming to high environmental standards, the National Trust must now put in place the practical arrangements to deliver this. Farm tenants will be heartened by the National Trust's clearly expressed position that good environmental management in the countryside cannot be divorced from the achievement of productive and sustainable farming.feedback

Samuel Stone - Marine Conservation Society

These fisheries are in a more exposed position than previously thought and we want people to make the most responsible decision when choosing fish, and go for green-rated fish.

Europe absolutely has to break away from the status quo. If it stays like this, there will be no more Europe in 30 years. The disintegration that has already started will continue.

The findings of this report have important implications for the global strategy to tackle ocean plastic pollution, which currently focuses on reducing plastic waste.
