WWF report reveals staggering extent of human impact on planet
Toronto, Oct. 29, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Global wildlife populations have declined by 60 per cent on average in just over 40 years, according to World Wildlife Fund’s new global Living Planet Report. The report, released today, presents a sobering picture of the harmful human impacts on wildlife, forests, oceans, rivers and climate. It underlines the rapidly closing window for action and the urgent need for widescale adoption of new approaches to valuing, protecting and restoring nature.
Canadian wildlife are not exempt from this global biodiversity crisis. WWF’s recent Living Planet Report Canada found that half of monitored vertebrate species in this country are declining, and of those, the decline is 83 per cent. This report also found that federally protected at-risk species have continued to decline since the Species at Risk Act became law.
*Megan Leslie, WWF-Canada’s president and CEO, says:*
“Our constantly increasing demands on nature are driving wildlife to extinction. It’s not just elephants, freshwater dolphins and rhinos, but Canadian wildlife too. Caribou, southern resident killer whales, burrowing owls: These Canadian species have been pushed to the brink by human impacts on nature.
“We are at a pivotal moment. We still have a chance to turn around our impact on nature and begin to reverse the decline on wildlife. Canada has committed to new land protections the size of Alberta by 2020. If we do this right, by choosing connected areas that have maximum value for wildlife, we could make meaningful progress on supporting biodiversity here at home. But if we squander this opportunity, we will condemn many more species to population loss and even extinction.”
The Living Planet Report 2018 presents a comprehensive overview of the state of our natural world, 20 years after the flagship report was first published. Through indicators such as the Living Planet Index, provided by the Zoological Society of London, the Species Habitat Index, the IUCN Red List Index and the Biodiversity Intactness Index, as well as planetary boundaries and the ecological footprint, the report paints a disturbing picture: Human activity is pushing the planet’s natural systems that support life on Earth to the edge.
*What is driving global species loss?*
Habitat loss due to agriculture and overexploitation of species remain the biggest threats to biodiversity and ecosystems globally. These threats are particularly evident in the tropics, resulting in more significant wildlife loss in those areas. Only one-quarter of land on Earth is free from impacts of human activities and that number is projected to decline to just one- tenth by 2050.
Habitat loss is the greatest threat to Canadian wildlife as well from forestry, agriculture, urbanization and industrial development. Boreal forests and wetlands – both substantial carbon sinks – have experienced considerable disruption in Canada.
Climate change is a growing threat, already having an effect at an ecosystem and species level.
*What can be done?*
This Living Planet Report echoes the urgency heard from the recent International Panel on Climate Change’s report Global Warming of 1.5°C: We are in the midst of a planetary crisis caused by human activities and we are still trending in the wrong direction.
To date, the loss of 60 per cent of our wildlife worldwide has failed to galvanize governments, businesses and individuals. Like climate change, bending the curve on biodiversity loss requires immediate action.
Governments at all levels, business, industry and the public must immediately join forces to meet Canada’s baseline commitments on biodiversity, protected areas and climate change. Failure to do so will result in continuing wildlife losses, with many species heading towards extinction. Specifically, we must:
· Create new high-quality networks of protected areas for terrestrial and inland waters, that prioritize species at risk, benefit the highest number of wildlife and act as massive carbon sinks.
· Create new networks of marine protected areas that prioritize critical habitat and foraging areas for species at risk, while keeping harmful development and extractive activities such as oil and gas exploration out of marine protected areas and marine refuges.
· Demonstrate political will and use the tools in the Species at Risk Act to prevent the extinction of our most vulnerable species (for example, issue an emergency order for southern resident killer whales).
· Stop delaying on the promise to phase out fossil-fuel subsidies and transition that funding to support habitat-friendly renewable energy development and jobs instead.
· Update Bill C-69 – the Impact Assessment Act – to ensure that all major development decisions are evaluated based on climate and biodiversity impacts, including:
· A carbon budget that limits emissions to 1.5C warming.
· Strategic, regional assessments that consider cumulative effects on ecosystems and wildlife.
*Two recent federal decisions have created increased protections for Canada’s wildlife:*
· Fish and other freshwater species habitat will be better protected in the new Fisheries Act (passed in the House of Commons this past June), which safeguards the flow of water essential for healthy freshwater systems and wildlife.
· Marine mammals, forage fish and other marine wildlife will be better protected once the recommendations from the National Advisory Panel on Marine Protected Area Standards are passed into law, as it brings Canada’s marine protected areas in line with international standards by, among other things, banning activities such as oil and gas development.
*Key findings from Living Planet Report*
· Wildlife population declines are especially pronounced in the tropics, with South and Central America and the Caribbean suffering 89 per cent loss since 1970.
· Habitat degradation and loss is consistently the most reported global threat to biodiversity.
· Freshwater species numbers have also declined dramatically, with the Freshwater Index showing an 83 per cent decline since 1970.
*Key findings from Living Planet Report Canada*
· *Mammals:* Populations dropped 43 per cent.
· *Amphibians and reptiles:* Populations dropped 34 per cent.
· *Fish:* Populations declined by 20 per cent.
· *Birds:* While some groups of birds are showing signs of recovery, others aren’t faring as well. Monitored populations of grassland birds dropped 69 per cent, aerial insectivores fell 51 per cent, and shorebird populations declined by 43 per cent.

Unbridled consumption has decimated global wildlife, triggered a mass extinction and exhausted Earth's capacity to accommodate humanity's expanding appetites, the conservation group WWF warned Tuesday.
From 1970 to 2014, 60 per cent of all animals with a backbone -- fish, birds, amphibians, reptiles and mammals -- were wiped out by human activity, according to WWF's "Living Planet" report, based on an ongoing survey of more than 4,000 species spread over 16,700 populations scattered across the globe.
"The situation is really bad, and it keeps getting worse," WWF International director general Marco Lambertini told AFP.
"The only good news is that we know exactly what is happening." For freshwater fauna, the decline in population over the 44 years monitored was a staggering 80 per cent. Regionally, Latin America was hit hardest, seeing a nearly 90 per cent loss of wildlife over the same period.
Another dataset confirmed the depth of an unfolding mass extinction event, only the sixth in the last half-billion years.
Depending on which of Earth's lifeforms are included, the current rate of species loss is 100 to 1,000 times higher than only a few hundred years ago, when people began to alter Earth's chemistry and crowd other creatures out of existence.
Measured by weight, or biomass, wild animals today only account for four per cent of mammals on Earth, with humans (36 per cent) and livestock (60 per cent) making up the rest.
Ten thousand years ago that ratio was probably reversed.
"The statistics are scary," said Piero Visconti, a researcher at the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis in Austria and one of 59 co-authors of the 80-page report.
"Unlike population declines, extinctions are irreversible." For corals, it may already be too late.
Back-to-back marine heatwaves have already wiped out up to half of the globe's shallow-water reefs, which support a quarter of all marine life.
Even if humanity manages to cap global warming at 1.5 degrees Celsius -- mission impossible, according to some scientists -- coral mortality will likely be 70 to 90 per cent.
A 2C world would be a death sentence, a major UN report concluded last month. Half-a-century of conservation efforts have scored spectacular successes, with significant recoveries among tigers, manatees, grizzly bears, bluefin tuna and bald eagles.
"If we didn't make those efforts, the situation would have been much worse," Lambertini said.
But the onslaught of hunting, shrinking habitat, pollution, illegal trade and climate change -- all caused by humans -- has been too much to overcome, he acknowledged.
"Scientists call it the 'great acceleration'," he said in a phone interview.
"It is the exponential growth over the last 50 years in the use of energy, water, timber, fish, food, fertiliser, pesticides, minerals, plastics -- everything." The pace of population increase -- long taboo in development and conservation circles -- also took off around 1950, the date scientists have chosen as the "gold spike," or starting point, for a new geological period dubbed the Anthropocene, or "age of man".
In looking for answers, conservationists are turning to climate change for inspiration.
"We need a new global deal for nature," said Lambertini, noting two key ingredients in the 195-nation Paris climate treaty.
"One was the realisation that climate change was dangerous for the economy and society, not just polar bears," he said.
Similarly, he argued, threatened ecosystem services long taken for granted -- drinkable water, breathable air, heat-absorbing oceans, forests that soak up CO2, productive soil -- are worth tens of trillions of dollars every year.
"A healthy, sustainable future for all is only possible on a planet where nature thrives and forests, oceans and rivers are teeming with biodiversity and life," said Lambertini.
The Paris Agreement, negotiated under the UN convention on climate change, also set a clear target: global warming must be held to "well below" 2C, and 1.5C if possible.
The parallel UN Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD), by contrast, has lots of targets running out to 2020 which are not only too weak, but -- with one possible exception -- will probably not be met, Lambertini said.
"The CBD is failing," he told AFP. But an upcoming meeting of the 195-nation body could be the beginning of a "revolution" that will see the Convention re-engineered in 2020 into "a new deal for Nature."

With financing from its owner, Kjell Inge Røkke, REV Ocean is currently building the world's largest and most advanced research and expedition vessel. The vessel, scheduled to be completed in 2021, will be an important tool in combatting the challenges of our ocean.
The vessel will be available to world leading scientists through independent calls for proposals reaching out to the global marine science community. The vessel will also be used for education, capacity building, ocean literacy and policy-making programs both through the science program and selected expeditions and symposiums organized on the boat. Our goal is that the vessel will be an important contribution to the UN Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development.
-This pledge shows the dedication and commitment of Kjell Inge Røkke and REV Ocean to make a true difference in improving the state of our ocean. Mr. Røkke is a businessman and a visionary who has pledged to donate substantial portions of his wealth to the improvement of ocean health. He has made much of his fortune from the ocean and it was only natural for him to choose improving ocean health as his philanthropic goal. REV Ocean is lucky to have such a devoted owner, says CEO Nina Jensen.
A key factor for REV Ocean's success are partnerships with other leading ocean environments. Hence, REV Ocean works with UNESCO/IOC, UN Environment, the WEF Friends of Ocean Action, WWF and others in developing the vessel's scientific program and activities. We are in close dialogue with the High-level Panel for a Sustainable Ocean Economy, as well as the various Norwegian scientific institutions and organizations involved with the ocean.
-Our hope is that REV Ocean, through our partners and the people on board will make a big difference in the effort to find more sustainable solutions for life in the ocean. We welcome interested parties to reach out to us with good ideas, partnership suggestions and for sharing scientific ocean data and related opportunities. Together we will make sure that the ocean continues to thrive and can provide oxygen, food and jobs for mankind for generations to come - there is no alternative, says Nina Jensen.

*The Appian Platform Provides Automated Travel Cards Integration on any Mobile Device from any Location*SYDNEY, Australia, Oct. 30, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Appian (NASDAQ: APPN), a leading enterprise Low-Code and Business Process Management (BPM) platform provider, today announced it is helping Geoscience Australia improve and digitise the processes supporting travel card integration within the organisation’s financial systems. Geoscience Australia is part of the Australian Government under the Department of Industry, Innovation and Science. They address important national issues to assist government and the community to make informed decisions about the use of natural resources, the management of the environment, and community safety, extending beyond the Australian landmass to Australia’s vast marine jurisdiction as well.
These responsibilities create distinct travel needs for Geoscience Australia staff, including the need to work in remote parts of Australia. The previous system made travel card reconciliation with Geoscience Australia’s financial system difficult and prevented mobile device use beyond the LAN within the main office. A modern enterprise low-code solution was required to facilitate automated travel card reconciliations through seamless integration with Geoscience Australia’s financial system. This all needed to happen via one application that could be accessed from any mobile device anywhere across Australia.
Beyond this initial solution, Geoscience Australia selected Appian as a platform for broad digital transformation to support further development of additional automated workflows and processes in other areas of the business. These include other areas of finance, travel pre-approval processes, work health and safety incident and hazard reporting, governance and reporting, executive reporting dashboards, agency manager’s meeting reporting workflow, library and education, products and promotions/communications services, property and facilities management and employee on-boarding and off-boarding.
“We were delighted to be able to meet the digital transformation requirements of Geoscience Australia,” said Karen Astley, Regional Vice President, APAC, Appian. “The Appian platform has brought a number of benefits including the ability for complex solutions to be configured and changed quickly for multiple areas of the business, as well as the seamless integration with Geoscience Australia’s Technology One financial system.”
Astley continued, “Appian’s native mobility, which allows application access and use on any device anytime, anywhere has also supported Geoscience Australia’s goals. And the ability to rapidly add numerous additional applications to the platform was also an advantage.”
The Appian project at Geoscience Australia is also being closely monitored by other government departments that also require their staff to make travel card reconciliations.
