  • Climate impact and solutions

    Human Impact
    Our single species has had momentous impact on the planet. More than 40 per cent of the primary productivity of the land surface has now been sequestered by humans and, with our population set to increase to 9,000 million during the century, the trend is towards even greater sequestration. Inevitably, our planet will become impoverished as species get squeezed out and disappear. Indeed, in our efforts to channel the sum of life’s activity for our own use, we have disrupted the web of life, eliminating competitors when they stand in our way and through the use of technology becoming the most powerful predators of resources that the Earth has ever seen. That way of thinking and behaving is represented in our economic systems such that we consume natural resources as if there were no limits, as if the bounties of Nature would continue for ever. Whatever resource we look at, fresh water, forests and minerals, we see growth of consumption doubling every 30 years or so. That exponential growth indicates that during every successive doubling of consumption we are actually consuming more of that resource than has even been consumed before.

  • Olive Ridley Sea Turtles are struggling to Survive

    Right to life. Unfortunately the Olive Ridley Sea Turtles are fighting for their lives in the Odisha coast, India. Together we can prevent this suffering. Now it’s a race against time, as mortality of Olive Ridleys is worst along the coast of Odisha; with highly unsustainable fishing effort and habitat destruction, these beautiful species are on the verge of extinction.

    This species is especially known for its mass nesting or arribada when several thousands of turtles migrate to the breeding ground to mate and nest. The Gahirmatha, Rushikullya and Devi river mouth of Odisha state is well known for world’s largest Olive Ridley sea turtle rookery. The Olive Ridley sea turtle (Lepidochelys Olivacea), which nests along the Odisha coast, is highly endangered today. This species is especially known for its mass nesting or arribada when several thousands of turtles migrate to the breeding ground to mate and nest simultaneously. Although mass nesting or arribada takes place in three sites, the adjacent beaches of these places also contribute greatly through sporadic nesting of sea turtles. Olive Ridley Sea Turtles in Odisha represents about 50 % of its world population and 90% of sea turtles along the India coast comes to Odisha coasts for nesting. The large-scale mortality of adult turtles every year in Odisha coast recorded during the study is a matter of utmost concern and need to be addressed immediately. Incidental mortality of Olive Ridleys is worst along the coast of Odisha; with arribada Olive Ridleys gathering to nest were unsustainable fishing effort is high. Since last 10 years, thousands or tens of thousands of Olive Ridleys have stranded dead on the Odisha beaches, presumably as a result of incidental capture in shrimp trawls. Apart from fishing related mortality, turtles face multifarious problems while they are in the coastal waters of Odisha. The polluted beaches make unsuitable for turtles to nests, the high predation by feral animals are hindrance in the recruitment of offspring and moreover, the anthropogenic activities are harmful for habitat and breeding of turtles. To counter the high mortality rate (to predators) and low survival rate (one in a thousand), these gentle creatures have been pushed towards the brink of extinction.
