Wildsight speaks out against logging in Columbia Wetlands

"...The report states that Canfor’s forest management practices play a key role in helping to sequester carbon by reducing greenhouse gas emissions, as dead and dying trees that are normally the target of bark beetles are not able to contribute to carbon sequestration..."

Trust must act on climate emergency declaration

"...An Oxford University publication from 2019 stated that coastal regions, islands and ecosystems “exist in a delicate balance at the land-sea interface,” making them exceptionally vulnerable to climate change impacts. The loss, degradation and conversion of native habitats, forest canopy, forest understory, and wetlands, reduces water storage, perpetuates water shortages, increases soil desiccation and erosion, increases flood and fire risk, increases temperatures and heat waves, perpetuates declines in biodiversity and weakens community resilience..."

Consumers are willing to pay for ecosystem services

"...Many consumers are willing to pay for improved environmental quality and thus non-market values of impacts of food production on e. g. water quality, C sequestration, biodiversity, pollution, erosion or GHG emissions may even be comparable to the market value of agricultural production..."

Beef industry can cut emissions with land management, production efficiency

"...A research team led by Colorado State University (CSU) and funded by the Climate and Land Use Alliance found that widespread use of improved ranching management practices in two distinct areas of beef production would lead to substantial emissions reductions. This includes increased efficiency to produce more beef per unit of GHG emitted - growing bigger cows at a faster rate - and enhanced land management strategies to increase soil and plant carbon sequestration on grazed lands..."

How coastal forests are managed can impact water cycle

"...Using meteorological sensors perched on towers above the forest canopy, the researchers are able to track water flow to and from the site, including during a severe drought in 2007-2008. They've also used the sensors to track carbon sequestration - an important marker for the forests' ability to mitigate or contribute to climate change. They have gathered data on forest carbon and water cycling spanning 14 years..."

CCA Confirms Leadership, Sets Path Forward For Year Ahead At AGM

"...Removing the RML will go a long way in making AgriStability more predictable and equitable for our industry. CCA encourages all FPT Ministers to continue productive discussions on further changes to agriculture risk management programs in Canada – making the Livestock Price Insurance Program national and permanent is a key recommendation of CCA that has yet to be implemented. Environment is a continued focus for CCA this coming year..."

LETTER: Langley Township council must make developers keep more trees

"...There is research that shows that urban trees and forests save lives due to their ability to remove particulates from the air which can cause heart and lung disease. Langley has many aquifers from which drinking water is obtained and trees filter the water as well as act as flood control. Trees clean the air through carbon sequestration trapping carbon dioxide which also helps to cool the Earth..."

Arctic shrubs add new piece to ecological puzzle

"...This question of species diversity and co-occurrence versus exclusion has roots in a seminal paper in 1958 by Robert H. MacArthur that is taught in community ecology classes across the world. In that study, five species of warblers in the northeastern United States were observed avoiding each other while making their livings on different parts of the same tree -- some preferring upper or middle branches, others the ground or trunk, for example..."

Climate change increases coastal blue carbon sequestration

"...Coastal Blue Carbon (BC), which includes mangrove and saltmarsh tidal wetlands, of which was first coined a decade ago to describe the disproportionately large contribution of coastal vegetated ecosystems to global carbon sequestration. The role of BC in climate change mitigation and adaptation has now reached international prominence. Recent studies have reported BC's unique role in mitigating climate change, projected coastal wetlands area change, carbon stocks in response to historical sea level rise fluctuations, and the future roadmap relative to carbon sequestration studies..."
