Help the Juruena park: http://ift.tt/1sAL9ZQ The National Energy Policy Council (CNPE, in portuguese) — is meeting in Brasília, June 24, when it may declare as “public utility” a part of the Juruena National Park, located on the border between the states of Mato Grosso and Amazonas. With nearly 2 million hectares, Juruena is the fourth largest national park in the country. It represents 2.5% of the area covered by the federal protected areas in the Legal Amazon and 5.3% of the area in national parks areas in the region. The park is part of ARPA (Amazon Region Protected Areas), which funded part of the actions for its implementation. The Declaration of Public Utility (DUP, in Portuguese) is the first step towards a reduction of the protected area for the construction of the hydroelectric plants of São Simão Alto and Salto Augusto Baixo. They are part of a series of seven dams that the government plans to build in the Tapajós Basin, with significant social and environmental impacts. In order to raise awareness of the society regarding these threats to the Juruena National Park and the Tapajós Basin, WWF-Brazil has launched this month, the SOS Juruena Campaign. The initiative calls for the support of society to pressure the government and block the construction of dams within the Juruena National Park, therefore ensuring that this protected area remains intact.

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
