The civil war in South Sudan is hampering humanitarian relief after famine was declared in parts of the country this February. When aid deliveries fail to arrive, health workers are forced to decide which children get fed and which do not.

Tavolo Community Forest in Papua New Guinea
There are usually no roads with community forest management. The forest provides food, medicine, craft and building materials for the Tavolo community. All access is by foot or by boat within the Tavolo FSC certified community forest management area in New Britain, Papua New Guinea. This is a key distinguishing feature from the logging roads usually associated with forest dwellers turned loggers. The corporate lumber trade is aware of the rich timber growing in Papua New Guinea and unregulated and badly managed deforestation could be at risk in the future. The PNG rainforest plays a critical role in regulating the global climate and halting runaway climate change, for the benefit of the entire biosphere.
The Hopi, Navajo, Ute Mountain Ute, Ute, and Zuni tribes of Southeastern Utah need your help.
Trump recently signed an executive order mandating a review of 27 of our national monuments. This process could end with these monuments being rescinded or dramatically reduced. Now is the time to speak up. Tell the Trump administration why protecting our most special federal lands and waters matters. Visit monumentsforall.org #MonumentsforAll

: Edgardo Ochoa wrestles with an abandoned fishing net he helped remove from a reef off Otoque Island, Panama. Ochoa first discovered the net when was he was scouting for dive training sites in Panama Bay in 2000. These so-called “ghost nets” can ravage marine habitats for decades. Nearly two decades later, as a marine safety officer for @ConservationOrg
, he was able to do something about it. With a newly formed Ghost Net Removal Team that included @ConservationOrg
, local NGOs and government agencies, Edgardo was finally able to help remove the ghost net from the reef. For the full story, visit blog.conservation.org #ghostnet #panama #net #marine #conservation #ocean #reef
