It’s aptly called the Boiling River, and it’s a mysterious body of water that reaches 97 degrees Celsius (207 degrees Fahrenheit). This is not a river you’ll want to swim in — simply touch it and you’ll get third degree burns. For Asháninka healers like Maestro Juan (shown in the photo), the water is sacred and full of healing powers. For geoscientist Andres Ruzo, it is a unique geothermal phenomenon that must be protected. “My goal is to ensure that whoever controls this land understands the boiling river's uniqueness and significance,” he says. “We define significance. We are the ones who draw that line between the sacred and the trivial.” To learn more about the Boiling River, visit the link in our bio to watch @andresruzo’s #TEDTalk. Photo by Sofía Ruzo

Literally,” Macron tweeted.
Brazil’s president, Jair Bolsonaro, a right-wing nationalist who bristles at the idea of foreign interference in the Brazilian Amazon, took exception to his French counterpart’s comments. “I regret that president Macron seeks to take advantage of what is a domestic Brazilian issue and of other Amazonian countries for personal political gain,” Bolsonaro tweeted, targeting what he called Macron’s “sensationalist tone” ...

But instead of investigating the facilities, the Government last year issued an order allowing the conversion of existing tiger farms to safaris and zoos for “conservation, tourism and scientific purposes”. Since then, the number of tiger farms has actually increased while existing operations have expanded ...

Reposted from @eia_news (@get_regrann) - Papua: Logging, mining companies lock eyes on a biodiverse island like no other
Woodlark Island sits far off the coast of Papua New Guinea and is swathed in old growth forests, home to animals found nowhere else on the planet. However, the island and its unique inhabitants have an uncertain future. Lured by high-value timber, a logging company is planning to clear 40 per cent of Woodlark’s forests. Researchers say this could drive many species to extinction. ... an independent investigation found this application process “riddled with errors, inconsistencies and false information” and that the company did not properly obtain the consent of landowners who have lived on the island for generations.
Meanwhile, a mining company is pushing forward with its own plans to develop an open-pit gold mine on the island. The mine is expected to result in increased road construction and discharge nearly 13 tonnes of mining waste into a nearby bay.
FACT: 1 million wild animal species face extinction PRIMARY CAUSE: habitat destruction due to animal agriculture
You may not care much about chickens, but do you care about wolves, mountain lions, walruses, koalas, and bears? If so you need to know your food choices are decimating them. Are your tastebuds more important than beautiful wildlife? Please wake up and stop making selfish and ultimately catastrophic decisions with your palette.

Authorities in Singapore have seized a record haul of 11.9 tonnes of pangolin scales and 8.8 tonnes of elephant ivory.
The shipment of three containers from the Democratic Republic of the Congo was seized on Sunday (21 July) being transhipped through Singapore en route to Vietnam.
Ahead of the 18th meeting of the Conference of the Parties (CoP18) to the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species (CITES), this massive haul ramps up the need for Vietnam to take meaningful action to crack down on its escalating, out-of-control illegal wildlife trade ...

Governments from around the world meet in Geneva this week for one of the most important dates in the conservation calendar – and perhaps the last chance to save the world’s most threatened marine mammal.
The 18th Conference of the Parties (CoP18) to the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species (CITES) opens on 17 August and our Ocean campaigners have today released a new report urging trade suspensions against Mexico for its failure to protect the critically endangered vaquita porpoise from illegal fishing. ... as few as 10 are estimated to survive in the world – a direct result of rampant and uncontrolled illegal fishing for totoaba, an endangered large fish poached for its swim bladder or maw.

Reposted from @markopollo61 (@get_regrann) - Repost from @anonymousforthevoiceless using @RepostRegramApp - Circuses and tiger exhibitions…snake handling and donkey rides… A large proportion of the public still don’t seem to understand that non-human animals are not here to entertain us. These animals are captive and often have little to no chance of socializing with their own kind and are usually kept confined and alone. In order for them to perform the acts—or to be docile enough for safe human interaction—they are either trained into submission (often using violent methods) or drugged. There are plenty of activities that don’t involve the exploitation of a non-human animal, so why not do one of those instead? #circus#TigerKingdom#donkeyride#snakehandling#animalrights#veganactivism#vegan#vegansofIG

As concern grows about plastic debris in the oceans and recycling continues to falter in the United States, the production of new plastic is booming. The plant that Royal Dutch Shell is building about 25 miles north-west of Pittsburgh will create tiny pellets that can be turned into items like phone cases, auto parts and food packaging, all of which will be around long after they have served their purpose.
The plant is one of more than a dozen that are being built or have been proposed around the world by petrochemical companies like Exxon Mobil and Dow, including several in nearby Ohio and West Virginia and on the Gulf Coast. And after decades of seeing American industrial jobs head overseas, the rise of the petrochemical sector is creating excitement ...
