Although sea turtles spend most of their time in the ocean, we still know very little about their migration patterns. Satellite tracking helps fill that knowledge gap, allowing researchers to track marine turtles as they swim from place to place. Learn more: http://ift.tt/1lDLlaN WWF places satellite tags on marine turtles in many areas around the world. The information collected from the tags helps us to design better management strategies for their conservation, such as creating marine protected areas for important feeding areas or addressing threats to nesting beaches. Knowledge of marine turtle migration pathways is also important to reduce interaction with fisheries, when turtles too often become victims of bycatch. Satellite tracking involves attaching a special piece of equipment to a marine turtle’s shell. The transmitter, or ‘tag’, sends a message to a satellite each time the turtle comes to the surface to breathe. We then know the location of the turtle and plot it onto a map. RID 3826

SIGN OUR PETITION TO SUSPEND CONSTRUCTION NOW: http://www.bit.ly/1m6COux The newly proposed Don Sahong Dam could herald the extinction of the rare and revered Mekong Irrawaddy dolphins. Today, just 85 survive in a small stretch of the Mekong River. The sound waves from the initial explosions to clear tons of rock could potentially kill dolphins equipped with highly sensitive hearing. Later, they will have to survive increased boat traffic, changes in water quality, and habitat destruction. Don Sahong dam is not just bad news for Mekong dolphins: it will have dire consequences for the food security and livelihoods of people, particularly Cambodians, who rely on the Mekong River’s rich fisheries. The clock is ticking. Construction of Don Sahong is scheduled to begin this year. Mega First, the project developers, have never built a dam. And they have not satisfied calls by governments and civil society groups for proper transboundary studies to understand the impact and consequences of the proposed dam. Watch and learn what the Don Sahong Dam means for local communities. Learn more and support our campaign: http://ift.tt/1oB9bDH RS3820

The crack of a great shot. The rattle of the stumps. The roar of the crowds. We cheer every sound that defines cricket. The game isn’t just a sport in India but a way of life. However, unsustainable and illegal felling of trees not only has an irreversible impact on our forests and wildlife, but also on the future of the game that we love. WWF engages with companies for responsible wood sourcing and sustainable forest management to conserve the world’s forests. And by making sure that you buy wood that’s grown and harvested sustainably, you not only save our forests but also help save cricket. Read more at http://ift.tt/1hjq8lj RID 3817

The forests of India never fail to surprise you with their hidden treasures. Here is what WWF-India’s Western Ghats Landscape team discovered on their camera trap - a tigress with 5 cubs! RS3807

Do you know whether your candidates care about your health and the environment? Before you vote on 22-25 May for the European elections, make sure your candidates have signed the WWF’s pledge and committed to create a new Europe for the planet: http://ep2014.wwf.eu, #wwfpledge The European Union has the power to decide on things that are important to all of us: the air we breathe, the water we drink and the jobs we do. If you care, they will care. (For subtitles click on “caption” button) © WWF-EPO / Old Continent http://old-continent.eu RID 3791
