    Indonesia’s Komodo Island is expected to be handed back to the dragons.
    ⁠.⁠ Following a boom in tourism, the country has decided to close Komodo Island to the public for one year in 2020, to allow for the recovery of the world’s largest living lizard's habitat and to protect the species.⁠ .⁠ But the move comes at the expense of the local residents who share the island with the Komodo dragon.⁠ .⁠ Back in 2010, Al Jazeera met the Komodo dragon.

    The number of fires in the Amazon region this year is more than double the 19,229 that burned during the same period last year. But as international leaders raise the alarm about the fate of the planet's most biodiverse forest, many Brazilians say the world is overreacting. Fueling the situation is a defiant president, outraged environmentalists and conspiracy theories over foreigners' plans to take control of the Amazon.

    Wörthersee Football Stadium in Austria has been transformed into a lush forest 🌲🌳🌱 in an effort to raise awareness of deforestation and #climatechange. The pitch is now lined with about 300 trees, some weighing up to six tons each. The aim is to “challenge our perception of nature and question its future” and symbolizes the notion that nature “may someday only be found in specially designated spaces,” says Klaus Littmann, the Swiss artist behind the project.

    It might come as a surprise to northerners used to grey skies and drizzle, but demand for water could outstrip supply in parts of northern England by 2035 - partially because of the climate crisis.
    A new report warns that, in less than 20 years, Yorkshire and the Humber could experience water shortages because of significant reductions in rainfall, population increase and failures by water companies to reduce leakage.
    The Environment Agency has warned that England could run short of water within 25 years.

    As global temperatures continue to rise, 100-year floods could become annual occurrences in parts of the United States, according to new research published this week.
    The research, led by scientists at Princeton University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, examined flood risk for 171 counties along the U.S. East Coast and Gulf of Mexico. Historically, 100-year floods have been just that — an intense flooding event that happens once every 100 years, or has a 1 percent chance of happening in any given year. But scientists found that 100-year floods will become annual events in New England. In the U.S. Southeast and Gulf of Mexico, counties could experience such floods every 1 to 30 years.

    Good news! Seven eggs from the world’s last two remaining northern white rhinos have been successfully fertilized artificially. A big leap forward that may save these endangered animals. While Sudan, the world’s last male northern white rhinos, died last year, two female members of the species are still alive. Najin and Fatu (shown on this photo) are Sudan’s daughter and grand-daughter. The scientists working on this insemination harvested the eggs from those last two females and fertilized them with sperm from the now-dead last male. #whiterhinos #rhinos #feelgood #natureisawesome #science #tech #endangeredspecies #conservation #wildlife #research #kenya #berlin 📷: Barcroft Media/GettyImages

  • #Regram #RG @nytimes Komodo dragons resemble dinosaurs that missed their cue for extinction, but environmentalists worry an invasion of tourists to their island lair could bring them to a similar fate. The 10-foot lizards are native only to a scattering of islands in Indonesia, and while Komodo tourism generates significant cash for one of the country’s poorest regions, it has also brought piles of trash, human encroachment and occasional lizard smuggling. Like other tourist destinations around the world, from Venice to the Galápagos, Komodo National Park is at risk of being wrecked by its own popularity. Some environmentalists worry that the stampede of visitors has set the ecosystem off kilter, and local leaders aim to close the island of Komodo, where the largest population of dragons lives, for at least a year. Even residents would have to leave. “If we don’t give the dragons their habitat, they will be extinct within the next 50 to 100 years,” the island’s deputy governor said. @adamjdean took these photos.

    The real heroes of fires are of course the firefighters. In the Amazon they often work with nothing but machetes and leaf blowers and small tanks of fire suppressant. I worked with a troop of them in eastern Brazil back in 2017. It was tough hot and at times hopeless work. Some of them were Guajajara tribesmen who had dedicated their lives to protecting what was left of their ancestral forests - most had already been logged and burned. Some of them had been murdered for trying. It was brutal and tragic and we should all bow down to them for what they do - for so little money that they have to roll cigarettes with writing paper.
