Extinction Threat Growing for Vertebrates


Increasing numbers of birds, mammals and amphibians have moved closer to extinction in the last several decades - but not as far as they would have if no conservation measures at all had been enacted, researchers report. Their study was published by the journal Science.

To assess the status of the world's vertebrates, a large, international research team of 174 scientists lead by Michael Hoffmann of the International Union for the Conservation of Nature Species Survival Commission and Conservation International analyzed data for over 25,000 vertebrate species categorized on the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN) Red List. They report that one-fifth of species is classified as Threatened, and this figure is increasing. On average, 52 species of mammals, birds and amphibians move one category closer to extinction each year. The tropics, especially Southeast Asia, are home to the highest concentrations of Threatened animals, and the situation for amphibians is particularly serious.

Most declines are reversible, but in 16 percent of cases they have led to extinction. The researchers also asked whether conservation efforts such as establishing protected areas and adopting national legislation have made any measurable contribution to preserving biodiversity. By looking at species whose conservation status has improved in response to some type of conservation measure, Hoffmann and colleagues (including Bruce Collette and Robert Reynolds of the National Museum of Natural History) estimate that overall declines would have been approximately 18 percent worse without any conservation actions. Efforts that dealt with invasive species have been more effective than those attempting to address habitat loss or hunting, the researchers report.

Courses


Increasingly, Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and Remote Sensing - the mapping of features using imagery acquired either from an aircraft or a satellite - have become important tools for decision making and the applied management of natural resources. Many federal agencies and NGOs rely on GIS and satellite data for their work and are starting to produce their own spatial databases. However, there are few training opportunities for wildlife managers to learn the application of GIS in everyday management situations. The National Zoo is offering courses that will provide hands-on experience for the collection of data, GIS analysis of the data, and map-making using the latest ESRI and ERDAS software. Courses are taught at the Smithsonian Conservation Biology Institute in Front Royal, Virginia, located at the north entrance of the Shenandoah Park approximately 70 miles west of Washington, D.C. Pick-up from Washington Dulles Airport can be arranged.

  • May 16-20, 2011: Introduction to GIS & Remote Sensing for Wildlife Managers. This short course will provide wildlife managers with a working knowledge about the application of GIS and Remote Sensing to the monitoring and management of wildlife and forest vegetation. Exercises in establishing locations with a Global Positioning System (GPS), data input into a GIS, and spatial analysis techniques for GIS will provide hands-on and real world experience during the course.
  • May 23-27, 2011: Advanced Conservation GIS & Remote Sensing Course. This one-week course provides biologists and wildlife managers with an opportunity to learn how GIS and remote sensing can be used to assess the conservation status of endangered species.

Future Generations


The Future Generations Graduate School seeks applications for its Master's Degree program in Applied Community Change and Conservation. The next class begins September 2011. Applications are due May 1, 2011. This M.A. program is geared toward mid-career community development practitioners and social entrepreneurs. It allows leaders and organizers to remain in their home countries and continue to serve their communities without having to relocate. For more information, visit www.future.edu or contact the Director of Admissions, at admissions@future.edu.


Scholarships


The Wilderness Society is now accepting applications for the Gloria Barron Wilderness Society Scholarship. The scholarship amount varies from year to year. Historically, we have awarded $10,000 to graduate students in natural resources management, law or policy programs. The scholarship seeks to encourage individuals who have the potential to make a significant positive difference in the long-term protection of wilderness in the United States. The award is made in support of research and preparation of a paper on an aspect of wilderness establishment, protection, or management. The work may apply to a particular landscape or it may address issues broadly. The application deadline is March 31, 2011. For more information, please visit wilderness.org/content/gloria-barron-scholarship.
