How to Protect the Rainforest
For our final installment in the Amazon Adventures series, I interviewed expedition leader Corine Vriesendorp about what it means to protect and conserve areas of the rainforest in spite of the overwhelming global demands for its natural resources. This is a segment in a series about The Field Museum's Rapid Inventory No. 27, a journey through the forests between the rivers Tapiche and Blanco in Peru. Every year, the Museum's conservation group [the Action Center!] gathers together leading scientific experts across a number of disciplines (botany, zoology, geology, and anthropology) in order to gain an understanding of little-known areas of the rainforest. They work with local communities and their governments to help inform decisions made for conserving these unique, precious, and threatened parts of the world.

Governments and multinationals are trying to silence tribal peoples. They brutalize and murder them, and they steal their lands. They call them backward and primitive – but they’re not. Tribal peoples are just like us. They, too, are concerned about their quality of life and their children’s futures. Their understanding of the world is as astute as anyone’s and they have perceptive things to say about almost every aspect of life today. That’s why we’re giving tribes communications technology so they can speak to the world in real time. It’s time to listen. Find out more: http://www.survivalinternational.org/tribalvoice

Help Protect Deforestation In Peru | Cool Effect
Our forests, the world's most advanced air purifiers, are worth protecting. The Alto Mayo protected forest in Peru is twice the size of New York City. Despite its protected status, the forest has experienced deforestation due to an increased population, a national highway, and the vast amount of land that needs supervision. It has also suffered from unsustainable farming practices, especially for coffee. To help protect the forest, this project teamed up with local communities and government to provide economic incentives to the local people in exchange for taking care of the land. Learn more and take action to give a breath of fresh air to the Alto Mayo Conservation Initiative: https://www.cooleffect.org/content/project/alto-mayo-conservation-initiative How does this project save the planet? Tropical forests are the Earth’s lungs—absorbing CO₂ and releasing oxygen. This project seeks to protect nearly 450,000 acres from deforestation. More trees = more oxygen. Fewer trees = more carbon pollution. Benefits Of The Project: - Fights deforestation and thus reduces an average of 500,000 tonnes of carbon pollution annually - Protects 400+ birds and 3,000 plant species, many of which are found nowhere else on Earth - Rejuvenation of the forest provides fresh water to 240,000 people living downstream - Coffee produced in the Alto Mayo has achieved Organic Certification, giving a price premium to farmers, thereby raising household incomes - Over 600 families directly benefiting from project activities, including improved coffee yields and food security Challenges This Project Faces: - Due to its size, the Alto Mayo Protection Forest requires significant resources to protect it - Changing people’s behavior requires time to educate and build trust. Locals must see results to continue to protect the land - Establishing organic, sustainable coffee production systems is a process that takes years and can be subject to many external risks, such as pests and disease, erratic weather patterns, and market fluctuations Why did we choose this project? When we visited this project in February 2016, we were amazed to see the real impact of its conservation initiatives. With your help, we'll hopefully be able to place the entire region under the conservation initiative to stop the irreversible loss to the flora and fauna in this unique biome. Besides its contribution to reduction of carbon emissions, we recommend this project because of its success in instilling sustainable and participatory farming techniques in coffee plantations within the protected forest area. About Cool Effect Earth is our home, our planet. It belongs to each and every one of us, and we share a desire to protect it. Cool Effect gives each of us a chance to take a step toward that goal by supporting projects around the world that reduce carbon pollution. Starting with you and me, we can create a massive, cumulative effect toward cooling the earth. Together, our small actions will ignite planet-sized change.

Cool Effect is dedicated to finding the highest-quality projects in the world that reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Our projects are scientifically proven to reduce carbon, are 100% additional, and provide full transparency in pricing and product detail. When you support one of our projects, you will see clearly how your funding will be used and how it will impact the project and the planet. What does it take to become a Cool Effect project? There are over 10,000 projects around the world working to reduce global warming. To find the top projects, we are working with scientists who have had years of experience in the field evaluating and verifying projects according to United Nations requirements. They conduct an initial review to verify the substantive public documentation each project must submit to meet its certification standard (Gold Standard Foundation, Verified Carbon Standard, Climate Action Reserve, etc.). Then they conduct additional due diligence to verify that the issued credits could not have been produced without income from the sale of carbon and ensure full pricing, financial transparency, and sound management. We make site visits whenever possible or hire others to visit the projects for us. Our goal is to gather and then provide as much background as possible to consumers to communicate both the opportunities and the challenges for each project.

Community Based Action Project
Ghana's forests have been devastated over the last century and little now remains. Logging (legal and illegal), agriculture, hunting (causing forest fires), deliberate forest destruction, infrastructural development and mining have been - and still are - the main causes of forest destruction. Forest fringe communities who rely on the forests' resources for their subsistence and livelihood are alienated from forest protection, management and decision-making despite the important role they have played in managing off-reserve forests in the past. These problems are exacerbated by the timber companies which don't use harvested timber efficiently due to over-subsidisation of the sector and also their use of obsolete machinery. The companies also ignore the rights of communities, whose lives and livelihoods depend on the forest, resulting in conflict and social upheaval. To overcome some of these problems, Friends of the Earth-Ghana (FoE-Ghana) and Friends of the Earth-Denmark (NOAH) established the Community-Based Action Project (CBA) (2008-2011). They worked with more than 40 local communities as well as other stakeholders in the Oda River and Nkrabea Forest Reserves to build capacities to protect and sustain the natural forest. The project has also improved the difficult relations between forest communities and forest management authorities, built the capacities of Community Based Organisations (CBOs) and communities to negotiate with timber companies and ensure their rights to the forest are met, and enhanced the economic and social well-being of the communities. Aim and Objectives The main aim of the project was to engage major forest reserve stakeholders and support forest fringe communities to enable sustainable forest management and ensure communities enjoy an equitable share of the benefits from the forests and the logging operations. Objectives 1. To build the capacity and skills of communities and CBOs to know their rights as enshrined in Ghana's forest laws, to know their roles and responsibilities in sustainable forest management, and to ensure those rights and responsibilities are fulfilled; 2. To raise awareness at the regional and national levels about the importance of sustainable forest management and equitable forest benefit sharing; 3. To build the capacity and skills of Ghanaian NGOs for advocacy and campaigning towards sustainability in forest management. The project is now completed, and this film shows what has been achieved and the many stakeholders who have been involved in the project. See www.foe-gh.org to learn more about our work.

Volunteer rangers protect forest from illegal loggers
(11 Aug 2017) LEADIN: The largest lowland evergreen forest in Southeast Asia is under threat from illegal logging. Local patrols are working to protect Cambodia's Prey Lang Forest with the help of smartphone technology. STORYLINE: Prey Lang is one of the last remaining lowland evergreen forests in Southeast Asia and the largest on the Indochina peninsula. Covering 3,600 square kilometres west of the Mekong River in five north-central Cambodian provinces, the forest is home to at least 20 endangered plant and 27 animal species. According to a 2014-15 survey conducted by Conservation International, recorded species include 530 plants, 60 mammals, 266 birds and 67 amphibians and reptiles. But experts claim rampant illegal logging over the last decade is decimating the forest, long-considered one of most significant ecosystems in Cambodia. In an effort to protect it, the Prey Lang Community Network (PLCN) was set up in 2007. They began patrolling the forest to document illegal logging and poaching. The grassroots organisation has around 120 regular members and is active in over half of the forest's 339 communities. Members are not paid, but volunteer their time to preserve the forest and protect their communities' livelihoods. Bun Leang is the leader of this group of volunteers in Kratie Province. "We asked for training because we wanted to know what to do. We're doing this from the heart," he says. "When we see something wrong, we mark it with GPS so others can see that what we say is true and they can know whether or not trees were cut there or not. "If someone doesn't believe us they can go around and check by it by GPS. They can know that we are serious and our information is correct. That's very important. "As well as doing GPS, we also take photographs." To cover such a wide area they use motorcycles, driving along newly-made forest roads that improve access for patrols, but conversely also make it easier for loggers to extract trees. When the terrain gets too rough, they abandon their bikes and proceed through the forest on foot. "We are very sad that they cut down this tree," says Bun. "The wood is used to make all kinds of different things, mostly produced outside of the country in Vietnam. I am appealing to the Forestry Administration to help us prevent this. This tree is very fresh, it was just cut down." A Conservation International study says around 200,000 people, mostly ethnic Kuy, live in and around Prey Lang - which means "our forest" in the Kuy language. They rely on the forest for building materials, medicine, resin and food. Bun claims most trees are cut down by impoverished locals. They're then supplied to middlemen, who in turn sell them on to foreign dealers, mostly in Vietnam. Bun says locals who cut the trees - including many expensive hardwoods, like rosewood and resin trees - earn very little, whereas the middlemen make significantly more. Forestry police officer Sgt. Jim Vichay, in charge of protecting the forest in Prailong Commune, Kratie Province, claims locals are to blame. "Local people cut the trees, we don't have big people coming here," he says. "The locals steal the trees left and right. We have lots of territory to cover and limited resources, so it's very difficult for us, but we have no big people coming here." The locations of illegally cut trees are registered using smartphone GPS technology. That data is then forwarded to local authorities. The smartphones and other gear, including two-way radios, were provided by U.S. AID in 2016, as part of a $20 million USD package aimed at protecting Prey Lang. Some 70 PLCN rangers have also received basic training from the U.S. Forest Service. "The resin trees are the most valuable," says ranger Chea Ta.

Awareness of surroundings stop cutting tree conversation biodiversity protect forest to save life
Trees produce oxygen that is the lifeline of all living beings. In the hot summer, we usually plan trips in the hilly areas. But if the rate of cutting Trees remains same then we don’t have enough Trees to plan a trip, seasonal raining and amount of fresh oxygen will no longer be available. Trees helps to clean the air, soil and water, making the earth a beautiful livable place. Living close to trees makes us healthier and happier. Its time to SAVE Trees, protect forests and spread awareness. If you want to save trees, you can help by protecting those that grow around your home, and planting more Trees. Reduce the use of paper products, too. According to our little understanding, we have found few ways to protect Trees, you can also follow them, motivate your friends and family members to join hands together to save our beautiful earth or you can join an organization working to save Tress around your home 1. Saving Trees Around You Every town and city has laws dictating which tree species need to be protected and when and how it’s OK to cut down trees. In some areas, trees that are delicate, rare or extremely beneficial are protected by law. 2. What you can do to save the Tree Speak up to save the tree, rather than just letting it get cut down. Get together with other people who care about saving trees in your area and make it clear that you object to cutting down healthy trees. 3. Participate in Tree plantation As important as it is to protect mature trees, it’s also essential to think ahead and plant new trees that will eventually get tall enough to contribute to the canopy, clean the air and help keep temperatures cool. 4. Reduce paper use Reducing your use of paper products in order to save trees can seem abstract, since you never see the trees that get turned into items like paper towels and napkins. 5. Eat less beefThe production of meat in general requires tons of resources. Factory farms need space, water and food for animals they raise for food 6. Save: remaining Forests Forests in Brazil, Russia, Canada and other parts of the world are being cut down or burned by forest fires every day. 78 million acres of rainforest are lost every single year. Scientists posit that if forest destruction continues at this rate, 80 to 90 percent of rain forests will by gone by 2020. .

International Day of Forests 2019: Forests and Education
Learning to understand our forests and providing children with a foundation to better understand their importance is a critical step to safeguarding natural resources for future generations. Forests help keep air, soil, water and people healthy and play a vital role in addressing some of the biggest challenges we face today, such as climate change, eliminating hunger and keeping urban and rural communities sustainable. With more than half the world’s population living in urban areas, a number expected to rise to 70 percent by 2050, people are increasingly disconnected from nature and lack the awareness and understanding of forests and their benefits and the need to manage them sustainably, making it essential to bring forests into their lives at an early age.

Let's Protect Our Natural Heritage
To explore the natural beauty and ecological status of Mount Taw Naw (also know as Mount Dawna), the Karen Student Network Groups (KSNG) together with a local person visited the upstream area of the mountain where local people plan to establish as a community forest. Before KNU and Burmese government reached ceasefire agreement, there were no threats to this forest. The forest was protected by KNLA soldiers in the front line. There was no significant logging in the area. However after ceasefire, more logging was done by different armed groups. According to the local people, there was no group who will protect this forest and the rivers. Currently local people are trying to establish this area as a community forest with the vision of conserving the forest resources and the watershed area that serve their rice farms, vegetables, tobacco and other crops plantation. The villagers have already submitted the application to the township Kawthoolei Forestry Department (KFD). Yet, there has been no response from the officials.

Why should we care if a species goes extinct? Moral and ethical arguments to try to prevent species extinction include reasons like all life has a right to be here, or that we owe it to our grandchildren to protect species so they can see them in the wild. Species also impact the ecosystems they are a part of; plants and animals depend on each other in an ecosystem for things like food and shelter, so if one species dies out, then that could affect other species in an ecosystem. For example sea otters live in kelp forests and eat sea urchins, and when they were hunted almost to extinction the sea urchin population increased and ate all the kelp-- destroying the kelp forest habitat. What are ecosystem services? Ecosystem services are the collective benefits we get from ecosystems. Ecosystems provide us with a lot of great things like natural resources and water, and are home to living things we depend on-- like insects that pollinate our crops and decomposers that get rid of our waste. Ecosystems are healthiest when they are the most biodiverse.

Primitive Survival Shelter Build with Bare Hands - No Tools Needed
I head into the forest to to build a primitive survival shelter using just my hands and no tools. This bushcraft shelter is ideal for a 24 hour survival situation. I forage for resources and use nature to my advantage. Using natural materials such as sticks and moss to build this primitive shelter. Building a bushcraft shelter can be a challenge, but by using minimal effort and your intuition you can work with nature to protect and provide for yourself. I scout the area for a fallen tree. I use the tree as a ridgepole for the A-frame shelter. Using sticks to support the frame of the shelter, I then use moss on the wood roof to keep the rain out. If I was looking to bug out, this would be the type of low-profile, stealth shelter that I would build. Here is a previous shelter I built using No Tools: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yOIXeFtBYB0 OFFICIAL TA OUTDOORS MERCH: https://taofficial.com TA OUTDOORS PATCHES: https://www.taoutdoors.com/shop/ TA INSTAGRAM: https://www.instagram.com/taoutdoorofficial TA FACEBOOK: https://www.facebook.com/totallyawesomeoutdoors TA TWITTER: https://twitter.com/OutdoorsTa BEGINNER BUSHCRAFT GEAR: https://www.taoutdoors.com/bushcraft-gear/ INTERMEDIATE BUSHCRAFT GEAR: https://www.taoutdoors.com/intermediate-gear/ ADVANCED BUSHCRAFT GEAR: https://www.taoutdoors.com/advanced-gear/ Subscribe to our other Fishing YouTube Channel "TAFishing" here: https://www.youtube.com/tafishing FILMING & CAMERA GEAR I USE: Main Camera: https://amzn.to/2SG9unv Drone: https://amzn.to/2WSQ1za Standard Lens: https://amzn.to/2E5LFxs Wide Angle Lens: https://amzn.to/2E3U6t0 Zoom Lens: https://amzn.to/2tfb4yl 50mm fixed Lens: https://amzn.to/2BvUAGN Main Camera Microphone: https://amzn.to/2I9tVVQ Secondary Camera Mic: https://amzn.to/2WYP3RQ Radio Microphone: https://amzn.to/2Ifqaym Camera Light: https://amzn.to/2MYA4mn Powerbank: https://amzn.to/2WYQVdk Tripod: https://amzn.to/2DtumVm GoPro Action Cam: https://amzn.to/2UPS9Wx GoPro Chest Mount: https://amzn.to/2tfCkwu GoPro Head Mount: https://amzn.to/2WWBra3 Camera SD Cards: https://amzn.to/2WVWcT5 Editing Laptop: https://amzn.to/2BtRK4S BUSHCRAFT GEAR I USE: Bushcraft Pants/Trousers: https://amzn.to/2SFY8jf 3x3 Metre Tarp: https://amzn.to/2IjM4Az Hammock: https://amzn.to/2N0Vpvx Hammock underblanket: https://amzn.to/2GmeBmT Thermal Camping Air Mattress: https://amzn.to/2N0uQXs Awesome Affordable Bushcraft Knives: https://amzn.to/2SLhWle Medium Axe: https://amzn.to/2E5NBWK Gransfors Bruks Small Forest Axe: https://amzn.to/2E5FkC1 Small Hatchet: https://amzn.to/2I319Gb Affordable Firesteel: https://amzn.to/2N1D3L8 Folding Camp Grill: https://amzn.to/2BvF6lM Durable GPS Watch: https://amzn.to/2N1fQZl These are Amazon associate links and help to support my channel.

Protect Udzungwa Forest is documentary film produced in Kilombero valley especially at Udzungwa tropical forests.The film campaigns for people to join the few local forest fighters in order to be more powerful and stop any kind of destruction. The Udzungwa Mountain are world famous for their great numbers of endemic plant and animal species, found nowhere else on the planet, and they have been ranked among the most important biological hotspots in the world). Udzungwa Mountains play a critical role in the local, regional, and national economy of Tanzania. This is because they are a perennial source of water that used for agriculture and domestic use in the Kilombero Valley. Also the place attract tourist for which the nation as well the neighbor community benefit. The increase of population in Udzungwa area led to the destruction of forest due to the increase need of forest products. Much destruction is happening more in Lowland tropical forest that found in Magombera. The forest is being cleared for Charcoal burning,firewood,timber and commercial agriculture, requiring the felling of thousands of trees. The destruction of Udzungwa tropical forest threatening agriculture that depend the Kilombero and Kihansi Rivers,the large population which depend on this source of water from Udzungwa forests will suffer. Even now the sign of climate change and decrease of food production due to destruction of udzungwa forests can be seen.

PROTECT - An integrated european model to protect mediterranean forests from fire
PROTECT PROTECT is a European project which aims to create an integrated model for the prevention of forest fires in the Mediterranean area 9 partners from 7 European countries are collaborating on three separate lines of action. 1. monitoring and prediction 2. forest maintenance 3. information MONITORING AND PREVISION Predicting the onset of a fire is virtually impossible. However, it is possible to predict the days when a fire is more likely to develop. This is one of the aims of the PROTECT project, where researchers collaborate with civil protection officers and environment experts, studying some aspects that are important for the development and spread of a fire, such as type of vegetation, weather conditions and geomorphology of the area. Using this information, a risk index for fires in the Mediterranean areas is under development. The index will help identify the areas and days of high fire risk, allowing the officers to focus monitoring activities in the most dangerous areas and optimize the management of people and vehicles. In this way it will be easier to locate the fire outbreaks and extinguish them more rapidly, with a reduction of economic and environmental damage. ECOSUSTAINABLE MAINTENANCE OF THE FOREST Maintenance of forests and especially the parts bordering agricultural areas certainly helps to limit the development of fire, but it also yields economic benefits from biomass production. Decreasing the risk of fire, increases the capacity for renewal of the forest and the development of valuable plant species and wild animals. A forest in good health is an environmental heritage, but also an economic resource for the inhabitants of the region. INFORMATION But nothing can be done if people lack awareness of the value of forests and the dangers of fire. The cooperation of citizens living in areas at risk is fundamental to the prevention of fires! For this reason the Protect project gives great importance to making everyone aware of the dangers of forest fire, young and old, students and teachers, ordinary citizens or officials. Teaching some simple rules of behavior or actions to be taken in case of emergency is a determinant element of fire fighting. This action is especially effective when combined with the training of skilled technicians as well as the organization of courses and practical simulation for professionals involved in extinguishing fires. Only with the cooperation of everyone, from researchers to the fire brigade, from civil protection to citizens, will fires become rarer and more quickly extinguished.

Environment -- protecting our habitat and resources
From meeting the food needs of a growing population to reducing carbon emissions resulting from transportation, environmental challenges are faced at both a global and local level and require a holistic approach to research. Interdisciplinary teams here at the University of Sheffield are working innovatively to develop new models, technology and systems to help companies reduce their environmental footprint as well as understand the public's level of acceptance of these new practices. Areas of research expertise explored in this film include the sustainable design of buildings, the 'greening' of the supply chain and the development of electric vehicles.
