Protect #Wildlife from Extinctions - Support Conservation Community!
"Protect #Wildlife from Extinctions"
This is the basic, humble simple answer that I give when asked what I am doing the Conservation Community Project led by Andrew G. Steel aka " the Green Indian Jones".
#GlobalWarming, #SpeciesGlobalExtinctions, #ClimateChange, #EndangeredSpecies, #WildlifePoaching, #HabitatDestruction... some may say and believe, everything previously mentioned is a hoax!
Let's review the facts together.
Climate change: How do we know?The Earth's climate has changed throughout history.
Just in the last 650,000 years, there have been seven cycles of glacial advance and retreat, with the abrupt end of the last ice age about 7,000 years ago marking the beginning of the modern climate era — and of human civilization.
Most of these climate changes are attributed to very small variations in Earth’s orbit that change the amount of solar energy our planet receives.
This should ring everyone's bell! What do you think is happening right now and will occur tomorrow in your very immediate environment?
#AnimalsExtincts2017: The list of officially Extinct Species on Earth in 2017.
Rest in peace...you, me, us, all humans will never see again these species
''Simply listing the species that went extinct in a given year is surprisingly tricky. Here are answers to some commonly asked questions...
1. Just because we are always discovering "new" species doesn't mean we are offsetting extinctions somehow. When we discover a new species it is not actually new to Earth, it is just new to us. In other words, a new life form was not just created, we just happened to learn about it. There is a limited pool of species and the total number of species is decreasing. Evolution leads to the creation of new species but not on a time scale that is relevant to this conversation.
2. Human beings are one of the species on Earth. That does not mean that anything and everything we do is natural and therefore okay, even if it means causing species to go extinct. Other species have value and we should act accordingly to keep them around.
3. In this list, we include species that went extinct in a globally significant region even if the species might still exist somewhere else. I think these local extinctions (called extirpations) are important. You might decide not to include them in your list of extinctions....
4. It is often impossible to know when a species went biologically extinct. That is, there is often no way of knowing when the last individual of a given species dies. So, I often include in my list species that were declared extinct, this official designation often occurs many years after the last actual death. Again, you may not include them in your list of extinctions, but I do.
5. It is not unusual to "rediscover" a species that we thought was extinct. That is always great news. But, they are usually still critically endangered and often "really" go extinct afterward.
Our objective at #ConservationCommunity is to raise awareness and put under the microscope #Causes dear to our hearts.
You might want to discover the story behind all this to understand why some of us get up early in the morning attend their everyday life and do actually something meaningful for the preservation of the Planet & its ecosystems.
THE PATT FOUNDATION LAUNCHES THE CONSERVATION COMMUNITY PLATFORM
A new fundraising platform with a difference has been launched to direct funds to prominent projects in the conservation arena.
Andrew Steel initially formed the PATT Foundation in 2005 with a mission to react to problems caused by the massive and increasing levels of deforestation worldwide. In essence, it was an entity that aimed to put the trees back and over the last decade, it has achieved a degree of success planting nearly 1 million trees across Asia and enlightening over 10,000 children via its environmental education program and nursery in Khao Yai, Thailand.
Along the way, the foundation has worked with some significant major blue chip companies around the world that include the likes of; Standard Chartered Bank, FedEx, Crown Worldwide Group, Mercedes Benz, Delacon, Merck, Raimon Land PLC and Pepsico.
In 2017 the charity declared a change in strategy to encompass a wider broader reach that would see them partner with 9243887 Canada Inc. to establish a new fundraising platform utilizing account-based marketing servers and artificial intelligence (AI) in the fundraising market.
“The benefits of the platform will allow the project coordinators to focus on the task in hand rather than worrying about sourcing the much-needed funding to launch or continue their projects in the wildlife conservation field” stated Andrew Steel, CEO of the PATT Foundation.
The Conservation community will initially focus on a handful of selected projects including Hornbill reintroduction in Thailand, Forest Ranger training in Myanmar and Sumatra as well as Orangutan conservation in Indonesia before branching out into other jurisdictions.
Steel added, “The platform would differ from other crowdfunding systems in the market in that it will conduct strict due diligence and Know Your Client (KYC) procedures before allowing projects to be featured inside the Conservation Community platform and audits would be conducted to ensure funds were utilized correctly.”
Conservation Community has been established to:
1. Provide much needed financial assistance to conservation projects and communities and ensure funds are utilized correctly.
2. Ensure that projects can be accomplished removing the worry about where the funding will come from.
3. Educate the public on the projects that are striving so hard to protect our planet
Top 3 features:
1. Connect like-minded people on one single platform
2. Provide a fundraising platform that allows the community itself to get directly involved in each project, allowing people from remote locations to interact and support the cause that is dear to their hearts
3. Support project developers in attaining their goals
