Planning for Healthy Country in the Arafura Swamp region of Arnhem Land
 
06:33
The Arafura Swamp Rangers Aboriginal Corporation (ASRAC) recently launched their 10-year Healthy Country Plan, with support from Bush Heritage Australia, to protect Aboriginal culture, knowledge and ecosystems across 1.2 million hectares of East Arnhem Land. “For our people, land, culture and country are never separate. Bringing many partners together to protect our law and culture is really important,” says ASRAC Chair Otto Bulmaniya Campion. Bush Heritage Australia’s Chief Executive, Gerard O’Neill, says that Aboriginal partnerships are a growing part of our national conservation strategy. “We are extremely privileged to be working with Yolngu and Bi Traditional Owners and ranger groups in helping them keep their country healthy and cultural heritage protected.” Our 24 active Aboriginal partnerships now account for 4.9 million hectares of land being protected for conservation.

Aboriginal water values and management in northern Australia
 
14:17
As part of the Tropical Rivers and Coastal Knowledge (TRaCK) research program, we documented and quantified Aboriginal social and economic values of aquatic resources and identified their flow links in the first study of its kind in Australia. The research was conducted over three years (2008-2010) in two tropical river catchments—the Daly River in the Northern Territory and the Fitzroy River in Western Australia—where water planners needed information on Aboriginal people's water requirements. Narrated by traditional owner, Patricia Marrfurra McTaggart, this video focuses on the research conducted in the Daly River catchment.

Birriliburu Rangers back on country in West Australian desert (extended)
 
08:42
In April 2013, Birriliburu in Western Australia was declared an Indigenous Protected Area (IPA) under a Federal Government program, enabling Traditional Owners to manage their land as a reserve. Since that time, Bush Heritage has been fostering a partnership with the Martu people through their organisation Mungarlu Ngurrankatja Rirraunkaja (MNR) and program managers from Central Desert Land & Community. Employing Traditional Owners from Wiluna and other communities, the Indigenous Ranger Program enables Martu people to manage their country and protect its outstanding conservation values. The program brings together traditional knowledge and science; providing an opportunity for cross-cultural exchange and better social, economic and environmental outcomes for the people and their land. The Birriliburu IPA is vast; at 6.6 million hectares, it’s nearly the size of Tasmania. Given this size, strategic management areas have been identified around significant conservation, cultural and heritage assets. Katjarra (Carnarvon Range), in the south-western pocket of Birriliburu, is one such area – where Birriliburu rangers are leading fire management, threatened species, feral animal and bush tucker work.

Jorge Alvarez Romero - A practical approach to design a network of marine reserves in the [...]
 
45:43
Seminar title: A practical approach to design a network of marine reserves in the Midriff Islands (Gulf of California) considering connectivity and climate change Seminar type: CoralCoE seminar series Presented by: Jorge Alvarez Romero Date: Thursday, 31st of July 2014 Abstract: Overfishing and climate change threaten marine biodiversity and fisheries worldwide. Addressing these problems is particularly critical in areas of high species richness and endemicity, such as the Midriff Islands, Gulf of California, where livelihoods of coastal communities are negatively affected by depletion of fish stocks and potential loss of valuable species due to climate change. Our study aimed to develop a practical approach to design networks of marine reserves that consider ecological connectivity and the effects of climate change. We used up-to-date data/models on marine species distribution and ecological connectivity, as well as current systematic conservation planning methods to design and test alternative reserve networks that achieve three objectives: represent biodiversity (species and habitats) associated with rocky reefs; minimise costs to fishers and/or maximise benefits to commercial fisheries; and account for ecological connectivity and predicted ecological changes wrought by climate change. To achieve our objectives, we developed and tested alternative methods to incorporate connectivity based on readily-available data and tools. To provide practical guidance to real-world marine planning exercises, we discuss the benefits and limitations of our approach, such as the assumptions underpinning our treatment of connectivity and climate change in the spatial prioritisation and the adequacy of our outputs to guide on-ground implementation of actions. Biography: Jorge was born and grew up in Mexico City, where he studied Biology at the National University of Mexico. He completed his PhD in the Centre of Excellence for Coral Reef Studies, where he is now a postdoctoral research fellow. Jorge’s broad research interest regards planning for the sustainable use of natural resources to achieve biodiversity conservation and development objectives. In particular, he is interested in advancing systematic conservation planning theory and practice through the integration of terrestrial and marine conservation planning initiatives. Other areas of interest and previous work experience include prioritising invasive species management, conservation planning for endangered species, wildlife trade, and catchment and river plume modelling. He is currently working on three applied research projects: prioritizing management actions to achieve multiple objectives in northern Australia; exploring the use of social network analysis to inform regional conservation planning, and collaborating with researchers, agencies and local NGOs to design a network of marine reserves in the Gulf of California, Mexico.
Melanie Hamel - Protecting the unknown: what data for local coral reef conservation planning?
 
50:20
Seminar title: Protecting the unknown: what data for local coral reef conservation planning? Seminar type: PhD exit seminar Presented by: Mélanie A. Hamel Date: Monday 15th of June 2015 Abstract: Systematic conservation planning helps to identify candidate protected areas to represent biodiversity while minimizing negative impacts to resource-dependent human communities. One of the foundations for the success of protected areas designed using such approach is relevant, quality spatial datasets: on biodiversity and on the expected socioeconomic costs incurred when implementing protected areas. However, collecting comprehensive data is challenging and expensive. In coral-reef regions, conservation planning is still at its infancy, leading planners to mimic approaches used in other realms, spatial scales, and socio-political contexts, often based on a number of untested and unstated assumptions. For instance, to minimize the difficulty and cost of data collection, habitats are typically used as proxies for biodiversity, and forgone resource extraction or economic opportunities are used as proxies for socioeconomic costs of reserves to people. The main goal of my thesis was to verify the validity of using these proxies and related objectives for local coral reef conservation planning. I focused on local planning because governance systems tend to be devolved in these regions. First, I quantified the well-known trade-offs between global conservation objectives based on habitat representation, and local socioeconomic objectives. I used the three small Pacific islands of the Territory of Wallis and Futuna as a case study. My results highlighted the critical role of data and of the socioeconomic and geomorphologic context in achieving objectives, and also in the extent of trade-offs between conservation and livelihoods. To investigate the relevance of commonly used proxies to small-scale coral reef planning, I used the Madang Lagoon (Papua New Guinea) as a case study. I first questioned the adequacy of common proxies for socioeconomic cost. I found that information on fishing pressure and catch typically used to estimate opportunity costs did not necessarily reflect the importance of fishing areas for fishers. Since people derive diverse benefits from their coral reef environment, including fishing, I also developed a method to collect information about the perceived importance of places for these benefits. I showed how incorporating this information into planning can reduce direct negative impacts of conservation actions on the broader community, not just fishers. Then I designed reserves using several combinations of biodiversity and socioeconomic proxies (respectively habitat maps of various thematic resolutions, and proxies for fishing pressure and catch). I found that the effectiveness of these reserves at representing species while minimizing socioeconomic costs to the broader community varied strongly with the types of proxies and the taxa of interest. Importantly, more expensive datasets did not necessarily help design the best reserves. My thesis highlights the risk of using inadequate data to identify candidate protected areas: it can lead to a false sense of achievement of both conservation and socioeconomic objectives, ineffectively protecting biodiversity while incurring significant impacts on local communities. My work also contributes to conservation planning theory and practice, by providing new methods for incorporating more relevant spatial socioeconomic information into reserve design in coral reef regions. Bio: Mel grew up in a fishing town in Upper Normandy in France. She undertook her MSc (Ecology) at Paris 11 University and did her research project at Charles Darwin University, where she examined the diving behaviour of nesting Olive Ridley turtles in northern Australia. Fascinated by the extraordinary diversity of people, landscapes and species in the Pacific, she worked on various research projects in Northern Australia to model bird populations threatened by forestry activities, in New Zealand to monitor the health of estuaries, and New Caledonia to map coral reef habitats and discover the field of conservation planning. Mel’s experiences in the region and personal interests inspired her to pursue a multidisciplinary PhD, where she is questioning the relevance of various types of commonly used spatial information for local coral reef conservation planning. Mel’s work is mainly focused on the Madang Lagoon in Papua New Guinea.

New Kakadu National Park strategy to save endangered species
 
04:57
The Australian government says it will target fire, weeds and feral animals in a new strategy to protect threatened species at Kakadu National Park. The plan, revealed on Monday, will create a wildlife refuge on an island off the Northern Territory coast. It will be funded by a government investment of A$750,000, on top of the park's annual A$17m (£9m; $15m) budget. Kakadu has more than 75 threatened species, but it has seen a decline in numbers over the last decade. The Threatened Species Strategy was developed primarily by leading wildlife expert Professor John Woinarski. "Over recent decades, we've witnessed major declines in the previously extraordinarily rich biodiversity of Kakadu," Prof Woinarski said. Senator Simon Birmingham, the parliamentary secretary for the environment, says the strategy means more on-ground work to control direct threats such as feral cats, pigs, buffalo, weeds and fire. The plan will see the expansion of a project that "teaches" quolls to avoid eating the poisonous cane toad. Seeds from threatened plants will also be saved so that they can be propagated. "The park will continue its landscape-scale work to keep habitats healthy but boost it with targeted intensive effort to reduce threats and support threatened species recovery," Senator Birmingham said. The strategy is part of a project by the Northern Australia Hub of the government's National Environmental Research Program.

National Water Account 2013–14
 
03:11
In our variable climate, as our population increases and industries change, competition for Australia’s precious water resources intensifies. To ensure we have enough water for everyone, it is important to account for how water is managed across Australia. We need to know how much water is available, where it is, and how it’s being used. The Bureau of Meteorology’s National Water Account provides an annual picture of water availability. It plays a critical role in the planning and decision-making processes of governments and industry. This video summarises the key findings of the National Water Account 2014 from a national perspective. For more information, go to http://www.bom.gov.au/water/nwa/2014/

Just what extraordinary creatures are living in the Borneo rainforests? Join a team of Natural History Museum scientists on location as they survey the incredible diversity of insects and other invertebrates. Many of the species in this habitat are not yet known to science. Researcher Dan Carpenter explains the different methods they use to sample the invertebrates living in the soil, on dead wood, and flying in the canopy. Discover why it is important to know what is living where, and how the survey findings will help experts to plan the best conservation strategies to protect the forest's unique biodiversity.

Sunshine Coast Council - $2M Environmental Land Purchase at Verrierdale
 
02:21
More than 850 hectares of land has now been purchased by Sunshine Coast Council for conservation as part of its strategy to become the most sustainable region in Australia. Mayor Mark Jamieson said council used $2 million from the Environment Levy to buy 252 hectares of land adjoining an existing nature reserve at Verrierdale. "This is an important day for this region; this parcel of land is another important piece of the puzzle to help us preserve our natural environment on the Sunshine Coast," he said. "It also shows how we are getting the balance right as we strive to become the most sustainable region in Australia, economically, environmentally and socially. "This land is on top of the 600 hectares of land purchased by council for conservation across the Coast -- and shows how valuable the Environment Levy is to this region." The land connects Council's Doonan Wetlands Nature Refuge and the Doonan Creek Bushland Conservation Reserve to the Noosa National Park. It's home to endangered plants and animals such as the Hairy Hazelwood tree and the wallum froglet. Environment portfolio Councillor Tony Wellington said historically the types of rainforest on this site have been poorly conserved on the Coast. "This locale represents one of the most important wetland areas left on the Sunshine Coast," Cr Wellington said. "This recent purchase, together with the Doonan Creek Bushland Conservation Reserve and the nearby Doonan Wetland Conservation Area, will total 380 hectares of important habitat secured. "It helps protect the nationally recognised Noosa-Maroochy Wallum corridor and will support a range of rare and threatened plants and animals." Division 9 Councillor Stephen Robinson said he was pleased to see the site protected for the future. "This is so important for locals, and the region as a whole -- I'm really pleased one of the most significant areas in my division is being looked after for future generations," Cr Robinson said. "The next step is to develop a long-term plan for the site that will consider management requirements and potential educational opportunities."

Sagebrush Ecosystems in a Changing Climate and Adaptive Management
 
01:00:04
This webinar was conducted on July 17, 2017 as part of the USGS National Climate Change and Wildlife Science Center Climate Change Science and Management Webinar Series, held in partnership with FWS National Conservation Training Center. Webinar Summary: Sagebrush steppe rangelands comprise a large fraction of North America, but they are in decline due to increases in wildfire and invasive plants, factors that relate strongly to climate and weather variability. When intact, plant communities in sagebrush steppe appear well adapted to cold wet winters and hot dry summers along with low predictability of annual precipitation. However, disturbances such as large fire or conversion of sites to exotic annual grassland sensitize basic ecosystem functions to climate and weather variability, often leading to substantial losses in soil and ecosystem stability. Management responses to wildfire such as seeding, planting, or treatment of exotic invasive plants are pivotal opportunities for hindering or reversing the degradation. However, restoring desirable perennials is often challenging in these environments due to the climate and weather systems. Published and preliminary findings point to several seeding and planting strategies and technologies that are likely to increase success, particularly those that directly address seed and plant adaptation. The presentation gives a brief overview of how these factors are being addressed in research and adaptive management.

Should we let some endangered species die? | The Stream
 
25:36
The recent death of Sudan – the world’s last male northern white rhino – has reignited debate about the best way to preserve endangered wildlife around the globe. Although scientists plan to use Sudan’s genetic material to repopulate his species, some conservationists believe future resources should be spent toward protecting species critical to the ecosystem. Others suggest that some animals should be allowed to die out, while big game hunters argue that the money they pay to go on safari helps fund conservation efforts. So, are some endangered species more worthy of being saved than others? And what could be the potential costs and consequences of trophy hunting? In this episode, The Stream hosts a panel of conservationists and trophy hunters to explore some of the strategies being used to ensure the future of the world’s wildlife.

Australia is a model for the world in water management in arid environments. The Australian Water Project will be to provide important international lessons on how arid countries can best respond to water scarcity. Australia has developed the most sophisticated and effective system for managing scarcity - a system which has meant that the economic impacts of the devastating decade-long drought has been far less than would have been the case had Australia not had such an effective water market.

Why you should make useless things | Simone Giertz
 
11:58
In this joyful, heartfelt talk featuring demos of her wonderfully wacky creations, Simone Giertz shares her craft: making useless robots. Her inventions -- designed to chop vegetables, cut hair, apply lipstick and more -- rarely (if ever) succeed, and that's the point. "The true beauty of making useless things [is] this acknowledgment that you don't always know what the best answer is," Giertz says. "It turns off that voice in your head that tells you that you know exactly how the world works. Maybe a toothbrush helmet isn't the answer, but at least you're asking the question."

Lost in Translation movie clips: http://j.mp/1uvjeAh BUY THE MOVIE: http://amzn.to/vYQQ3V Don't miss the HOTTEST NEW TRAILERS: http://bit.ly/1u2y6pr CLIP DESCRIPTION: Past-his-prime actor Bob Harris (Bill Murray) experiences a language barrier with a Japanese commercial director (Diamond Yukai). FILM DESCRIPTION: After making a striking directorial debut with her screen adaptation of The Virgin Suicides, Sofia Coppola offers a story of love and friendship blooming under unlikely circumstances in this comedy drama. Bob Harris (Bill Murray) is a well-known American actor whose career has gone into a tailspin; needing work, he takes a very large fee to appear in a commercial for Japanese whiskey to be shot in Tokyo. Feeling no small degree of culture shock in Japan, Bob spends most of his non-working hours at his hotel, where he meets Charlotte (Scarlett Johansson) at the bar. Twentysomething Charlotte is married to John (Giovanni Ribisi), a successful photographer who is in Tokyo on an assignment, leaving her to while away her time while he works. Beyond their shared bemusement and confusion with the sights and sounds of contemporary Tokyo, Bob and Charlotte share a similar dissatisfaction with their lives; the spark has gone out of Bob's marriage, and he's become disillusioned with his career. Meanwhile, Charlotte is puzzled with how much John has changed in their two years of marriage, while she's been unable to launch a creative career of her own. Bob and Charlotte become fast friends, and as they explore Tokyo, they begin to wonder if their sudden friendship might be growing into something more.

Aquaponics can change the hunger landscape | Angela TenBroeck | TEDxFSCJ
 
09:04
This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. Researcher, teacher, and farmer Angela TenBroeck makes a passionate case for Aquaponics as a Triple Bottom Line solution for a business strategy to feed more people with better, cheaper, locally grown food while protecting the environment and earning a profit. Angela TenBroeck is the Founder of the Center for Sustainable Agricultural Excellence and Conservation (CSAEC) and Farm Operations at Traders Hill Farms. She is passionate about her work, and believes we can live in a world where no one goes without food. Her vision is to use a very simple process known as Aquaponics to change the way we view agriculture in the 21st century. Her work is focused on helping people see the value of using sustainable agriculture techniques to change the way we “do” farming, where we not only farm but also increase the amount of food we can produce. She has been fortunate to be able to research and design systems at a farm in North Florida known as Traders Hill Farms. The farm is a large community service project that repurposes former chicken farms into aquaponic grow spots. Traders Hill Farms continues its commitment to the community by offering an apprentice program. About TEDx, x = independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event.
