From The @WashingtonPost: Construction crews began blasting sites within Arizona’s Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument as part of the construction of President Trump’s border barrier, and the affected areas include sites sacred to Native American groups, according to a congressman from Arizona and advocates. The Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument is an internationally recognized biosphere reserve — meaning it has plants and animals so rare that the United Nations has given it a special designation. It includes about 330,000 acres of designated wilderness and is home to ancestral grounds sacred to the Tohono O’odham Nation, one of at least a dozen Native American groups that claim connections to grounds within the monument. Rep. Raúl M. Grijalva (D-Ariz.), whose district includes the reservation, said crews this week began blasting through parts of Monument Hill, which includes a burial site for the Tohono O’odham Nation.

A pangolin’s natural defense is to roll into a ball when threatened, which is why they’re such easy targets for wildlife traffickers. Today on #WorldPangolinDay, I'm supporting the @PangolinCrisis team with their #RollWithUs campaign to protect these gentle creatures from the trafficking crisis that is putting them at risk of extinction. Share this post to help raise awareness for pangolins and follow @PangolinCrisis for more information.

From @cnnclimate: 🐝 Bumblebee populations are rapidly declining across North America and Europe, according to a study from the University of Ottawa that examined 66 bumblebee species across the two continents. The study’s findings highlighted that as climate change causes temperatures and precipitation to rise beyond what bumblebees can tolerate, their risk for extinction increases. “The things [we] grew up with as kids are fading away very fast,” said a senior author of the study. “It’s not just that we’re looking at what our kids will experience; it’s that we are looking back not even a full generation, just to when we were kids, and saying, ‘Could we take our children to places we loved and find what we found?’ What our study says is that that answer is no across entire continents.” (📸:Natalia Fedosenko\TASS via Getty Images)

From @yaleenvironment360: Using satellite data, scientists are documenting the inexorable melting of South America’s glaciers and ice fields. The findings are sobering: Ninety-eight percent of Andean glaciers have shrunk this century, losing an average of three feet in thickness a year since 2000.
The area covered by glaciers in Peru, for example, shrank by nearly a third from 2000 to 2016. In the southern Andes, particularly in Patagonia, some glaciers have retreated 5.5 miles in the past century.

This ice loss poses a threat to water supplies and agriculture from Bolivia to Chile. “The disappearance of glaciers will have an impact on the cities, but not just cities — locals, farmers, and people who do agriculture more broadly,” says one scientist.

From the @washingtonpost: Antarctica has broken its warmest temperature ever recorded. A reading of 65 degrees was taken at Esperanza Base along Antarctica’s Trinity Peninsula on Thursday, making it the ordinarily frigid contingent’s highest measured temperature in history. It beats out the previous record of 63.5 degrees, which occurred on March 24, 2015. The Antarctic peninsula, on which Thursday’s anomaly was recorded, is one of the fastest-warming regions in the world. In just the past 50 years, temperatures have surged a staggering 5 degrees in response to earth’s swiftly-warming climate. Read more by clicking the link in the @washingtonpost bio.

From @cnnclimate: Rising temperatures triggering extreme weather events around the world could result in an increase in heat-related illnesses and deaths, as well as the threat of new infectious diseases, according to scientists at Johns Hopkins University. A paper published in the Journal of Clinical Investigation says that with climate change, we can expect cases of heat cramps, heat exhaustion, and potentially fatal heat strokes to climb. Extreme heat will particularly impact children, older people, people who suffer from chronic conditions and those who live in underserved communities. (📸: Getty)

An update from @aussieark and the recovery efforts for affected wildlife in Australia: Life Support for Endangered Brush-Tailed Rock Wallabies 
In early January 2020, Aussie Ark was invited by the New South Wales State Government to assess the situation of Brush-tailed rock-wallabies, sadly what was found were numerous deceased wallabies. Several from starvation and dehydration, whilst others were struck by a vehicle in search for food, water and shelter, as the area is not preferred wallaby habitat. Encouragingly up to 30 were found residing near waterbodies. These wallabies are now receiving food drops and ongoing remote camera monitoring until the situation improves. 
Regionally, all of the Brush-tailed rock-wallaby sites have been incinerated or are at imminent risk of fire. Coupled with the nation’s worst drought in recent decades, limited food and water supply is wreaking havoc on populations. 
Aussie Ark has committed to doubling its species recovery projects to create a new facility for the northern population of the species. The Ark currently has 7 purpose-built facilities that provide home for up to 45 wallabies. 
You can help Aussie Ark by donating today - see the link in their bio. #aussieark #conservation #australia #upperhunter #barringtontops #endangeredspecies #wildlife
