“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.” said Terry Hughes speaking about Sustainable Development.

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

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

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

Shi Mingde

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

Dan Danahar

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Terry Hughes

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Craig Packer

It's not like there's a mean, mystical, nasty lion that decides to eat mankind. No. No, they're just hungry. It's not unique for lions to attack people. It's a problem for the reality of lion

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Jan Szyszko

We must accept two assumptions. First, that it is man that is the subject of sustainable development, and so man has not only the right, but the duty to use natural resources. Second, that human development is not detrimental to the

Adrienne Crosier

The average litter size is three, so this time we've got an incredible pile of cubs. In just one week, we increased the number of cheetahs at SCBI by 50 percent. Each and every cub plays a significant role in improving the health of the population of cheetahs in human care and represents hope for the species

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

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

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

Kaleen Cottingham

We would probably do less than half of the projects that we're taking applications for right now for on-the-ground projects. At least in the state of Washington, this is a bipartisan congressional approach. We get support from our delegation, regardless of party, and we hope to continue that into the

Lu Kang

As a responsible developing country, China's plan, determination and policy to tackle climate change is resolute. We are willing to strengthen dialogue and co-operation with the international community to advance the global process of climate governance and promote the green, low-carbon and sustainable development so as to build a better future for next

Alan Rabinowitz

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

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

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

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

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

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. Regeneration is a slow process, we need zero deforestation

Alexander Karnaukhov - World Wide Fund for Nature

The protected areas here are not located in snow leopard habitats. So for now, this work gives no result for snow leopard

George Dunn

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

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.

Chris Parish

I'm a hunter, too, so I'm kind of stuck in the middle. Do x-rays on carcasses and show hunters the gut piles. This is real conservation that makes sense. Read all the politics you want, but here's the real dope. Here's what we need you do to, and here's a box of bullets to give it try. The condor could stand as a symbol of what we're capable of, not just another endangered species program nagging

Now my colleagues of the conservation department in the ministry will work on it, and the colossus, as well as the head, as well as the statue of limestone of the Seti II, will be in display in a few days in the garden of the Cairo museum.

Today's action is as much a beginning as an end, and there is much work to do to ensure that any revised rule is transparent and fair for Americas farmers and

Sandro Gozi

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. If Europe makes a political choice to exit this status quo, though, I imagine a Europe of sustainable development, a federal Europe, a protagonist in the

Jack Pascoe

The assumption was that by preserving so much country in the national reserve system that conservation was going to be ensured. But we're seeing more and more that without some sort of direct intervention we're going to lose many of our most threatened

Cathy Longmore

So we can see what animals we have out in certain areas as well as how many foxes we have and how many feral cats we have. We can go back and see what we had in year one versus year five, ten and into the future

Joao de Sousa - International Union for Conservation of Nature and Natural Resources

The findings of this report have important implications for the global strategy to tackle ocean plastic pollution, which currently focuses on reducing plastic waste. They show that solutions must include product and infrastructure design as well as consumer behavior. Synthetic clothes could be designed to shed fewer fibers, for example, and consumers can act by choosing natural fabrics over synthetic

We are delighted that so many nurdle hunters braved the winter weather this weekend. The information we've gathered will be vital to show the UK government that pellets are found on beaches all around the UK, and, importantly, that so many people care about the issue. Simple precautionary measures can help prevent spillages and ensure nurdles don't end up in our environment. We are asking the UK government to ensure best practice is in place along the full plastic supply chain, and any further nurdle pollution is
