IoES and Department of English Professor Ursula K. Heise has been awarded the British Society for Literature and Science (BSLS) prize for best book in the field of literature and science published in 2016. The book, ‘Imagining Extinction: The Cultural Meanings of Endangered Species,’ explores extinction, endangered species, and wildlife conservation through the lens of culture and storytelling. The BSLS judging committee praised the scope and rigor of the book, calling it “beautiful, absorbing, and brilliantly argued." Congratulations! #extinction #endangeredspecies #environmentalhumanities #ucla

Chlorpyrifos is a pesticide that has been proven in studies to stunt mental and physical development in children...

The salmon fishing industry alongside enviornmental groups are readying to sue the Trump administration citing the detrimental effectively chlorpyrifos causes to salmon population through agricultrure waste which seeps into the oceans threatening salmon numbers and the orcas who feed on them. Wild salmon numbers are about 5% of what they once use to be.

Strange weather linked to mysterious deaths of antelopes
.
In May 2015, over 200,000 Saiga antelopes (Saiga tatarica tatarica) mysteriously died in central Kazakhstan in a short span of 3 weeks, confounding scientists and animal activists alike. By June, almost 90 percent of the local saiga population was wiped out, characteristic of a mass mortality event (MME).
.
.
The animals showed clear signs of hemorrhagic septicemia, a form of blood poisoning, and this was linked to the bacteria Pasteurella multocida type B. However, these bacteria are a part of their normal microbial environment in the tonsils, present in healthy saigas as well.
.
.
So, what caused these bacteria to suddenly spread rapidly in the bloodstream and cause hemorrhaging? Researchers now built statistical models that looked at previous mortality events in 1981 and 1988, and the data showed that in the days leading up to all outbreaks, the humidity was higher than usual, over 80 percent, and the average minimum daily temperatures were also higher than normal, particularly in 2015. As the bacteria are in the tonsils and close to the environment, they responded to changes in atmosphere, thus triggering their growth.
.
.
Only 30,000 saigas survived the MME, because they had migrated further north during the time, which was colder with low humidity. .
.
The shifts in global temperatures (~1.53F increase since 1880) puts several species at the risk of extinction. Saigas have historically been resilient, roaming alongside mammoths. They are a legacy of ancient times, and it would be very sad to see them go.

La vida rural cambia rápidamente. Con el arrivo del mundo industrial en tan solo 20 años bosques, desiertos y pueblos enteros han sido devorados por maquilas y lujosos fraccionamientos. La vida de los campesinos se inclina hacia la urbanidad. #blackandwhite #blackandwhiteonly #streetphoto #streetphotography #endangeredecosystem #ecosystem #wildlife #nature #extinction #people #portrait #portraitphotography #picoftheday #dailypic #zmg #zapopan #guadalajara #jalisco #mexico #bosquedelaprimavera #sinbosquenohayprimavera #fightback

What if I told you this little guy saved the human race before it ever began? Rodents were one of the surviving species after the dinosaurs were forced into extinction. These little guys could hide underground from the harsh weather taking place above them. And once the dinosaurs were out of their way, they could inhabit far more places than ever possible. And ultimately, these crafty little guys would carry on the evolution process all the way to homosapiens. They allowed life to continue to flourish and if not for them, there would be no us! #nowyouknow #changetheworld #collidingstarstuff #planetearth #universe #girls #women #STEM #science #planteryscience #startalk #astronomy #cosmos #stardust #art #animals #animallife #rodents #dinosaurs #extinction #evolution #motivationmonday #mom #naturelovers #motherearth #mood #travelstyle #blogger #love #life

@Regranned from @unitefortheorangutan - @Regranned from @wildaware - Jakarta. Indonesia's Environment and Forestry Ministry is investigating the death of an orangutan whose headless and mutilated body was found earlier this week in Central Kalimantan's Barito River.

The male Bornean orangutan (Pongo pygmaeus) was discovered by a villager and had likely been in the water for at least two days before being found. The hair on its body had been singed off and its head was nowhere to be found. "We don't often see a decapitated orang utan. That's why this case has to be investigated. I have sent a team to Kalimantan," Wiratno, the ministry’s director general of natural resources and ecosystem conservation, said in Jakarta on Thursday (18/01). Wiratno said the orangutan was most likely killed in one of the palm oil plantations near the river.

He said there are 224 palm oil companies based in the province. Orangutans live in 461,873 hectares of protected areas within the plantations owned by those companies, which took up a total area of 2.2 million hectares. "Orangutans are considered as pests in those plantations, that's why they're frequently killed," Wiratno said, adding that he plans to meet with representatives from the companies to discuss ways to protect the endangered animal.

International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) has categorized Bornean orangutan as "critically endangered," one step away from being extinct.

The IUCN identified the main threats to the survival of the species as loss of habitat from deforestation and illegal wildlife trading.

Un Puma, el segundo felino más grande de América utiliza los cañones del bosque de la primavera como caminos para dirigirse a otras secciones de su territorio. A pesar de poder retratar a este magnífico animal, podemos también notar su grave condición, el animal lucia flaco y en un estado crítico. #wildlife #wildlifephotography #nature #naturephotography #animals #wildanimals #cougar #mountainlion #puma #mammals #animalphoto #endangeredspecies #endangeredecosystem #ecosystem #extinction #extinctionisforever #fightback #forest #bosques #canyons #zmg #zapopan #guadalajara #jalisco #sinbosquenohayprimavera #bosquedelaprimavera #mexico
