Cedar Cove Land for Tigers
GoFundMe Campaign: https://www.gofundme.com/landfortigers Website: http:www.saveoursiberians.org Facebok: https://www.facebook.com/CedarCoveParkStaff/ Cedar Cove is a non-profit Conservatory and Education Center located just South of Kansas City in Louisburg, Kansas. The park was open to the public in 2000 by William Pottorff with the goal of preserving endangered species from extinction while educating about the impending threats humans pose in the forms of illegal poaching and trade, environmental impact and the wholesale destruction of habitats and ecosystems for commercial trade. From its inception, the park has been home to dozens of animals taken in as rescues from private ownership or the exotic trade as well as re-homes of animals from other facilities or abandoned wildlife run afoul of human activity. Sitting on 11 acres donated by friend, neighbor and conservationist George Criswell, volunteer effort has developed and expanded the habitats to the fullest use of the land available to accommodate the growing number of animals that continue to come to Cedar Cove as their fate both in the wild and in captivity presses closer. William Pottorff passed away in 2012 and trusted his legacy to Steve Klein and Bettie Auch who continue to expand upon William's vision to provide first-class veterinary care and enrichment for the animals as well as a leading-edge educational curriculum engaging preschoolers, students and seniors alike with a message of hope and empowerment. Bettie and Steve manage the operations with a diverse group of educated, conservation minded individuals with a passion for big cats and other predators. Steve left Kansas City in 2012 and took up residence on the property to continue Williams vigil. Cedar Cove's volunteers are one-of-a-kind individuals who prioritize their life decisions around the care of Cedar Cove and the animals. Operations run year-round and include educational outreach programs, group and private tours, and participation in various recycling programs for expired meat, including Wal-Mart, that diverts consumer waste away from landfills and into the many ready mouths at Cedar Cove. Now in its 16th year, Cedar Cove has the opportunity to purhcase an additional 130 acres of undeveloped property adjacent to the existing grounds. In addition to providing the opportunity to care for more animals in need with greatly expanded habitats, future plans call for the creation of a sustainable aquaponic greenhouse and classroom, wildlife rehabillitation center, nature trail, observatory and more, all set within the serenity of lands systematically re-wilded to a living forrest. Projected trends of habitat and species loss are making conservation awareness and education more important than ever, and it is these very projects that showcase the diversity of Kansas City and bring positive change to entire communities. Cedar Cove has seen a sharp rise in attendance not just with repeat visitors, but with groups coming from out of state, even out of country, bringing revenue to local communities and taking with them an awareness that lasts a lifetime. We need your help now to raise $80,000 by July 1st, 2017 to secure the available 129 acres and the future growth of this conservatory and it’s educational message. Please consider a gift to Cedar Cove to ensure these beautiful and important animals are still with us for you children and their great-grandchildren to appreciate and enjoy. Your help in supporting this endeavor will create a wonderful legacy of hope and inspiration that will end

A waste-to-energy journey (17.7.2016)
T•PARK, Hong Kong's first self-sustained sludge treatment facility, is open to the public, with guided tours and spa pools available for reservation. Visitors can explore the park's environmental features and educational and leisure facilities to learn about the city's sludge treatment and experience the “waste-to-energy” process. One of the most technologically advanced facilities of its kind in the world, T•PARK near Tuen Mun combines advanced technologies into a single complex to treat up to 2,000 tonnes of waste per day. It also comprises power generation, desalination, educational and ecological facilities. Waste recovery Environmental Protection Department Environmental Protection Officer Cary Wan said the park's advanced incineration system can reduce sludge, the sediment deposited during the treatment of sewage, by 90%, thereby substantially reducing landfill loads. "The T in T•PARK stands for transformation, which means the heat energy generated from the incineration process is recovered and turned into electricity that can support the needs of the entire facility. "We want to use this as an example, to call on the public to deepen their efforts in energy saving and waste reduction." The park has educational and leisure facilities to boost public awareness on the importance of waste reduction at source. The heat generated during sludge incineration can be recovered for electricity generation to meet on-site needs. The surplus power generated can meet the needs of up to 4,000 households. The park treats and reuses wastewater for irrigation, flushing and cleaning. Its seawater desalination plant produces fresh water for use on site and rainwater is also collected for non-potable use. The heat energy recovered from the incineration process warms the park's three spa pools. They are set at hot, ambient and cool temperatures, and have sea views of Deep Bay, making the park a perfect place to relax and refresh. Energy education Secondary school teacher Alice Choi brings her students to the park to learn about the waste-to-energy concept. "It really works here. Students are not just looking at the display boards but also to have first-hand experience of the facilities, which is related to sludge incineration. This can help them see things in a more concrete and multi-angle way." The park's exhibition halls explain the waste-to-energy, sludge incineration, sewage treatment and power generation processes. Visitors can also view the facility's operations through windows and real-size models. Secondary school student Bowie Tsang said visiting the park has made her determined to reduce waste. "I learned there is a lot of sludge produced in just one day. I will try my best to recycle and produce less rubbish." About 1,200 tonnes of sludge is produced in Hong Kong every day. Landfilling used to be the only means of sludge disposal in Hong Kong. Now with its advanced incineration system, T•PARK can reduce the volume of sludge by 90%, substantially reducing the landfill load. With a green coverage ratio of 70%, the T•PARK includes a landscaped garden with five themes, a roof garden and a wetland habitat for wildlife. Members of the public are welcome to visit the park to experience its educational and recreational facilities. (http://bit.ly/29Jgc2j)

Wakiso district leaders demand for city status
The leaders of Wakiso have developed a physical master-plan that will guide the district to city status. The proposal for city status was first mooted in 2013. With a population of more than 1.7 million people and with the district being one of the gateways into the capital Kampala, the leaders say they need more funds to construct roads. The district chairman Matia Bwanika told local leaders and physical planners attending a physical planning symposium at the district headquarters that they will resist Kampala Capital City Authority’s idea to make the district part of the Kampala Metropolitan Plan.

Transfer Station, Stamford CT, leaking out
The City of Stamford agreed, after relentless residents had been complaining about garbage leaking out for many years, from the "garbage Transfer Station" grounds. The Transfer Station is on the East Branch Canal, and the East branch Canal, is connected to Long Island Sound, a couple of hundred yards down. Residents and local activists, have been cleaning up a ridiculous amount of garbage out of the Marsh / Wetland adjacent to the Czescik Marina. 2.5 tons were taken out in December and probably the same amount after with another 4 or 5 cleanups and a few heros that go there regularly. The city offered to replace the fence, with a taller one and one with smaller holes, rather than finishing the wall that was started close to 20 years ago. The sea wall, holding the whole structure of that wall, and fence, is collapsing and the city does not want to spend money on this. They did promise that they would look into the plans of a shed to completely contain the garbage transfer, which we imagine was the reason for building this operation back then. On the 25th of April they had confirmed that they were 3/4 finished and about to finish.. After hearing of some goose eggs i am curious how come a wildlife expert was not called on the scene to properly and respectfully relocate the goose..although today i saw no signs of a goose family there, i did see the worst area of the transfer station, in the back of the building where most of the garbage settles and is sent with whirlwinds, then normally into the water either abve the fence or under the fence.. The city will need to resolve this issue ASAP, we will be contacting the DEEP and the EPA about this. Eyes Of Steel Ⓥ DM

New Emergency Animal Mortality Management CPS and Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza
Full title: New Emergency Animal Mortality Management (368) Conservation Practice Standard and Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza Presented by: Glenn Carpenter, Ph.D., National Leader, Animal Husbandry, USDA NRCS Ecological Sciences Division, Washington, D.C. Cherie LaFleur, P.E., Environmental Engineer, USDA NRCS Central National Technology Support Center, Ft. Worth, TX Lori Miller, P.E., Senior Staff Officer / Environmental Engineer, Science, Technology and Analysis Services, Veterinary Services, USDA APHIS, Washington, D.C. View the webinar at http://conservationwebinars.net to earn CEUs. Participants will learn about the new NRCS conservation practice standard CPS 368 to manage emergency related animal mortality and about USDA Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) emergency response in the current Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza situation, including the roles and responsibilities of both NRCS and APHIS. This webinar is a review of the new NRCS conservation practice standard for Emergency Animal Mortality Management (CPS 368). With climate change there seems to be an increasing number of storm events and associated animal mortality disaster situations. There are also a large number of emergency mortality situations related to animal health; the Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza (HPAI) situation of Spring 2015 is an example. Emergency Animal Mortality Management (CPS 368) has been removed from CPS 316 Animal Mortality Facility to strengthen NRCS’s ability to deal with emergency situations, increase the number of disposal options, and more explicitly define NRCS’ roles and responsibilities in providing assistance in a disaster situation. The webinar will also discuss APHIS's role in the recent HPAI outbreak, and how we can coordinate our roles in future events. This webinar includes an informative Q&A session at the end of the presentation, for a total duration of 1:53 minutes for the on-demand webinar.

Greg Christakos MS-GIST Master's Presentation 2015
Finding Your Center: Suitability Analysis to Locate a Town Center in Sierra Vista As small cities grow and compete to attract new citizens, their ability to offer a thriving downtown, or town center, is key to their success. Specifically, these developments must contain ample amenities and desirable residencies to ensure that the city has an attractive downtown. One city which has begun planning a town center is the City of Sierra Vista, located in Southeastern Arizona. This study investigates the residential suitability component of the future town center site in Sierra Vista using a suitability analysis. Using cost distance functions and fuzzy logic, a series of cartographic displays show areas within the city where different services and amenities are easily accessible using existing transportation methods. These high accessibility areas are then compared to the five potential town center sites, as identified by planners, to see which sites fall within areas of greatest convenience for future residents. Results show that of the five possible sites, one in particular serves as the most ideal for developing a town center based on the accessibility to amenities that its location provides. The final maps and outcomes will help the City of Sierra Vista to determine which site is most ideal for town center development based on conditions ideal for residential growth.

IDW 2016 - Panel Discussion: The Myth of Water Abundance in Canada
Many Canadians, particularly in Southern Ontario, go through their day-to-day life with the luxury of not having to worry about where or when they will get their next glass of clean water. "The Myth of Water Abundance in Canada - The Need for Conservation" is a multi-sectoral panel that aims to address and change this perception at its roots while providing conservation techniques that can be implemented by individuals and make a positive impact. This panel will also raise awareness about the many sustainably driven conservation efforts being made by organizations protecting the greatest source of liquid fresh water on the planet, The Great Lakes. Krystyn Tully, co-founder of Lake Ontario Waterkeeper will also be attending and will be talking about “What it takes to keep your favourite waterbody swimmable, drinkable, fishable”. Chris LeConte, Principal of Smart Watering Systems, will be speaking on "The reduction of potable water on landscapes; facilitating a shift towards storm water management and rainwater collection/re-use". Lloyd Hipel, a Project Manager at Enviro-Stewards will be speaking on "Locally and regionally funded water conservation audits and their benefits; The Safe Water Project". Finally, Natalijia Fisher, a program manager for Environmental Defence will speak about "The Waukesha Diversion, Protecting Lake Erie, and their upcoming Water Bottle Campaign".

Integrating spatial data: Mapping social values
Integrating spatial data: Mapping social values in relation to energy and water resources in the western U.S. Efforts to place human beliefs into geospatial representations of landscapes are increasingly being used to inform natural resource planning and management. In this seminar, we investigate ways in which mapping of social data can help to address issues stemming from people’s dependence on energy and water resources in the western U.S. First, we explore The Nature Conservancy’s work on mapping human preferences for energy development in Wyoming in relation to other values, participants' homes, and existing development. We then investigate the Colorado Water Institute’s mapping techniques for identifying locations where new initiatives for water use, sharing, and conservation may be implemented. Inherent to these two projects is a greater need for integration of social and biological data when addressing complex resource issues.

Part of the 2015 Mansfield Conference, The Asia-Montana Energy Summit Energy is the lifeblood of the modern world. Global energy consumption is expected to grow by about 70% in the coming 25 years. Much of this growth is driven by developing countries seeking a standard of living more closely resembling that of the Western World. The panel discusses how to meet the delicate balance of environmental con-cerns with the rapidly escalating demands of a growing populace. Speakers: Dr. Robert Duffy, Professor, Colorado State University Mark Safty, Partner, Holland and Hart, LLC Dr. Len Broberg, Professor, University of Montana Arnie Sherman, President and CEO, Global Development Service Moderator: Bob Seidenschwarz, Chairman, Montana World Affairs Council

Decker v. Northwest Environmental Defense Center: Oral Argument - December 03, 2012
Facts: Two logging roads in Oregon, Trask River Road and Sam Downs Road, are owned by the Oregon Department of Forestry and the Oregon Board of Forestry. The roads are used primarily by various logging companies. These roads run parallel to rivers and use a series of ditches, culverts, and channels to direct storm water runoff into the nearby rivers. This runoff deposits large amounts of sediment in the rivers, which adversely affects the fish and other wildlife that relies on the water. The Northwest Environmental Defense Center (NEDC) sued the Oregon State Forester, the Oregon Board of Forestry and several timber companies. The NEDC alleged that, since the runoff ditches and channels can be defined as "point sources," the petitioners violated the Clean Water Act by failing to obtain permits under the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System. In district court, the petitioners moved for dismissal by arguing that the runoff was exempt from the permits. The district court granted the motion. The NEDC appealed the case to the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit, which reversed the decision based on precedent that supported the NEDC interpretation of both the "point source" and the permit requirement. Question: 1. Do the runoff ditches and channels constitute "point sources" that require permits? 2. Are the petitioners exempt from the permit requirement? Conclusion: No and yes. Justice Anthony M. Kennedy, writing for a 7-1 majority, reversed the Ninth Circuit's decision and remanded for further proceedings. The Court held that the Clean Water Act exempts the storm water runoff from the permitting scheme because the runoff is not associated with industrial activity. Even though the roads are used for the transport of raw materials, they are not used for the manufacturing, processing, or storage of those materials. The Court deferred to the Environmental Protection Agency's own reasonable interpretation that the permit requirement extends only to traditional industrial sites, such as factories. Therefore, the runoff ditches and channels did not constitute point sources that require permits under the Act.

"Re Imagining E/Quality, Living within Limits" by Julian Agyeman
April 15, 2014 | In this Wrigley Lecture, Julian Agyeman outlines the concept of “just sustainabilities," arguing that integrating social needs and welfare offers us a more just, rounded, and equity-focused definition of sustainability, while not negating the very real environmental threats we face. He looks at real-world examples of just sustainabilities, focusing on ideas about "fair shares" resource distribution; planning for intercultural cities; achieving well-being and happiness; the potential in the new sharing economy, and, finally, the concept of “spatial justice.”
