This is a older post from 2007 but nothing has been done since.Further below you find a video clip from Dr Barrie Trower on the dangers of microwaves,f4om 2010.Same problem-not much has been done since..Are we really that stupid as a species to prefer to kill of the ecosystem and to extinct our own species on the end for the sake of mobile phone comfort? You as the reader decides….

Importance of Threatened Species Commissioner

​SavingSpecies isn’t easy.  It requires choices like using baiting compounds such as 1080 to eradicate feral predators.  But our animals deserve our support.  And our scientists can show us how to save them safely, effectively and justifiably.  
Today I visited Kapiti Island with DOC Threatened Species Ambassador Nicola Toki.  One of New Zealand’s island arks, Kapiti represents over a decade of hard work by Department of Conservation’s rangers.  The island is now feral predator free.  Baiting with biodegradable 1080 was essential for the eradications.  Now there are no more rats, FeralCats or stoats.  New Zealand’s wildlife is coming back.  The birds and lizards are safe from harm.  Safe from extinction.  The science shows the island has no toxic residues from the biodegradable baiting.  
A bird chorus that almost disappeared from New Zealand has come back.  
Share to show your support for rangers in New Zealand and Australia who are doing their best for our wildlife.

Birds to be lost forever


Deforestation, either to meet global demand for timber, or so land can be converted for agricultural use, is one of the biggest threats to bird biodiversity across the world. Over 60% of all bird species worldwide require forest habitats, and BirdLife estimates that figure includes some 76% of globally-threatened bird species.

Children and Conservation

​In a world were humans have become disconnected from nature and destroy nature and her creatures in various forms, these education programs come as a true blessing and open the doors for a better future for earth and nature and therefore also for humanity as we depend on nature to exist,but Nature doesn’t depend on us…
‘Studies have shown that children learn to love and connect much more easily with nature than adults because they naturally explore and learn through social engagements.
In an effort to get children interested in bird conservation and provide practical and sustainable solutions that will benefit nature and people in the future, BirdLife International experts and other conservation stakeholders in Senegal have given kids the opportunity to develop a lasting interest in bird science.’
