Geologists Forecast More Large Quakes for Haiti

Reuters (Feb. 15, 2012) — US geologists in Haiti say the country should prepare for more devastating earthquakes like the one that killed more than 315,000 people in January, 2010. Studies of one particular fault line, have convinced the scientists that the 2010 quake which flattened entire suburbs, was merely the first in a new period of seismic activity for the region.

The Rewilding of California Wolf Territory

The Rewilding of California Wolf Territory

FORA.tv (Dec. 18, 2014) — The Rewilding of California Wolf Territory California Academy of Sciences - California Academy of Sciences What would it be like to live in a world with no predators roaming our landscapes? Would their elimination bring about a pastoral, peaceful human civilization? Or in fact is their existence critical to our own, and do we need to be doing more to assure their health and the health of the landscapes they need to thrive? In this talk, Cristina Eisenberg delivers a compelling call for the necessity of top predators in large, undisturbed landscapes, and shows us how a continental-long corridor-a "carnivore way"-provides the room they need to roam and disperse. Along the way we will follow in the footsteps of six large carnivores-wolves, grizzly bears, lynx, jaguars, wolverines, and cougars-on a 7,500-mile wildlife corridor from Alaska to Mexico along the Rocky Mountains. Backed by robust science, Eisenberg shows how their well-being is a critical factor in sustaining healthy landscapes and how it is possible for humans and large carnivores to coexist peacefully and even to thrive. University students in natural resource science programs, resource managers, conservation organizations, and anyone curious about carnivore ecology and management in a changing world will find a thoughtful guide to large carnivore conservation that dispels long-held myths about their ecology and contributions to healthy, resilient landscapes.
