Why is biodiversity so important? - Kim Preshoff
View full lesson: http://ed.ted.com/lessons/why-is-biodiversity-so-important-kim-preshoff Our planet’s diverse, thriving ecosystems may seem like permanent fixtures, but they’re actually vulnerable to collapse. Jungles can become deserts, and reefs can become lifeless rocks. What makes one ecosystem strong and another weak in the face of change? Kim Preshoff details why the answer, to a large extent, is biodiversity. Lesson by Kim Preshoff, animation by TED-Ed.

17. Land Use and Conservation Law: The Adirondack History
Environmental Politics and Law (EVST 255) By reviewing the conservation history of the Adirondack Park, this lecture examines strategies to manage land use and natural resources in protected areas. The Adirondacks has been protected since the 1880s and became a national park in the 1970s. The government manages the park for a variety of uses, including recreational, ecological, and natural resource-related uses. The multiple uses of the park create conflict amongst stakeholders and require regulations that prevent certain types of development. The lecture reviews regulations and zoning ordinances that protect public lands. 00:00 - Chapter 1. Allocating and Managing Land Use 07:52 - Chapter 2.

Biodiversity conservation
Biodiversity conservation- This lecture explains about the conservation of biodiversity.Conservation is the defense, maintenance, management, or restoration of wildlife and traditional assets akin to forests and water. Via the conservation of biodiversity the survival of many species and habitats which might be threatened due to human events will also be ensured. Other explanations for conserving biodiversity incorporate securing useful typical resources for future generations and protecting the health of eco-system features. Conservation can commonly be divided into two types: In-situ: Conservation of habitats, species and ecosystems the place they naturally occur. This is in-situ conservation and the typical tactics and interplay are conserved as good as the elements of biodiversity. Ex-situ: The conservation of elements of biodiversity out of the context of their normal habitats is known as ex-situ conservation. Zoos, botanical gardens and seed banks are all illustration of ex-situ conservation. In-situ conservation shouldn't be normally possible as habitats will have been degraded and there is also competition for land because of this species have got to be removed from the field to save them Threatened Species Over the last 200 years many species have turn out to be extinct and the extinction price is on the develop because of the have an impact on of human pastime. The fame of species has been assessed on a global scale by means of the sector Conservation Union. Taxa that are dealing with a excessive chance of worldwide extinction are catalogued and highlighted within the IUCN purple record of Threatened Species. Threatened Habitats Habitat destruction comes in many forms from clear felling of forests to easy alterations in farming practices that fluctuate the total surrounding habitat. If a habitat is degraded or disappears a species may additionally become threatened. The united kingdom is in chance of losing various habitats starting from lowland calcareous grassland to mudflats and wet woodland.

How to green the world's deserts and reverse climate change | Allan Savory
"Desertification is a fancy word for land that is turning to desert," begins Allan Savory in this quietly powerful talk. And terrifyingly, it's happening to about two-thirds of the world's grasslands, accelerating climate change and causing traditional grazing societies to descend into social chaos. Savory has devoted his life to stopping it. He now believes -- and his work so far shows -- that a surprising factor can protect grasslands and even reclaim degraded land that was once desert.

Sustainable Forest Management and Wood Culture
Title:Sustainable Forest Management and Wood Culture Guest:Chen Xiaoqian Dr. Chen Xiaoqian, The Nature Conservancy China Program. Abstract: Forest combined economic, ecological and social functions. Objectives of Sustainable forest management including: maintaining long term productivity of forest land and maintaining forest' s ability on providing timber products and services, and also maintaining bio-diversity, landscape diversity and their unique features. Wood culture has the long history in China, ancient people realized the economic utilization value, and also in considering the sustainable wood products output and forest bio-diversity conservation issue. Improving sustainable forest management ability, guaranteeing the sustainable timber supply are important base and carrier of Chinese traditional wood culture. We should also strengthen and incorporate effective and reasonable timber utilization concept into our modern wood culture, and promoting the unification between forest economic function and ecological function, and balancing timber utilization and protection. The Nature Conservancy (TNC) China Program focused on bio-diversity conservancy in China, and began to work in Yunnan province in 1998. The Green Wood Procurement and Sustainable Forest Management project aimed to reduce the suspicious wood imported in China and catalyze legal and sustainable domestic wood supply.

Webinar: NatureServe’s Vista® Conservation Planning Toolbox (Nov 16, 2016)
Presenter: Dr. Patrick Crist, NatureServe The NatureServe Vista® is an extension to ArcGIS that supports complex assessment and planning in any environment, anywhere that has data sufficient for your planning needs. The tool helps managers and planners assess impacts on a variety of natural, cultural, and development objectives, and create options for sites, and entire landscapes and seascapes. Vista® supports decision-making by providing quantitative reports and maps, and allows testing of “what-if” situations on the fly. The tool combines data, expert knowledge, and stakeholder values to support well-documented and defensible solutions. Vista supports ongoing, routine plan implementation, and adaptive management. Vista also works well with a variety of other tools to integrate other functions, such as solution optimization via Marxan, ecosystem services valuation, and sector-specific suitability analysis and planning. Vista® has been used extensively in landscape conservation design applications while also allowing step down for the broad variety of LCC partner applications in land management, land use, energy, and infrastructure planning and mitigation. Patrick J. Crist is Director of Conservation Planning and Ecosystem Management for NatureServe, an international non-profit organization specializing in the conservation of biodiversity (www.natureserve.org). Dr. Crist oversees a variety of programs including conservation planning, the EBM Tools Network, and the NatureServe Vista decision support software. His work includes the development of methods and toolkits to fit organizations planning needs and working with clients and partners to conduct ecological assessments and integrated planning for areas ranging from local government jurisdictions to large regions. From 1995-2001 he was the National Program Coordinator for the USGS Gap Analysis Program (GAP); a nationwide biodiversity assessment program. He began his GAP career as the New Mexico GAP coordinator. He has a B.S. in landscape architecture from California Polytechnic (1984), an M.L.A. in landscape architecture and regional planning from the University of Pennsylvania (1992), and Ph.D. in Natural Resources (2003) from the University of Idaho.

Climate Change and Land Management: Social Network Analysis
This webinar was held as a part of the Climate Change Science and Management Webinar Series, a partnership between the USGS National Climate Change and Wildlife Science Center and the FWS National Conservation Training Center. Webinar Description: Many federal agencies are currently striving to plan for climate change adaptation. Researchers for this project explored 1) the degree to which federal resource managers believe that climate change adaptation is important in their work and 2) the degree to which these managers are connected to each other and to a broader research community that can provide a scientific basis for climate change adaptation actions. The project consisted of a social network analysis of federal resource managers in the regions encompassed by the Southwest and North Central CSCs. Methods for this project included an online survey targeting resource managers from the Bureau of Land Management, Forest Service, National Park Service and Fish and Wildlife Service, as well as a snowball survey to garner opinions from people within academic, nongovernmental and federal research organizations (e.g., USGS), as well as from state resource managers. This study resulted in a number of different findings, including an overall strong concern for climate change impacts on natural resources among resource managers and a varying degree of connectedness between resource management agencies and research units.

A Land in Balance
Texas and Oklahoma use prescribed burning - the planned and deliberate application of fire as a land management tool - for many reasons. Prescribed fire is good for: • many different types of landscapes and vegetation • improved water shed function • diversity of plants and trees • wildlife habitat • rangeland management • endangered species management • removal of litter, dead debris, brush, fallen trees - understory removal • reduction in available fuel for large, intense, rapidly-spreading wildfires • soil nutrients • carbon storage Prescribed fire is good for people too. It takes everyone working together - first responders, local and state officials, and landowners - to keep our landscapes healthy and our citizens and communities safe.

5. Conservation Development - Best Local Land Use Practices
This video is from the Ohio Balanced Growth Program Best Local Land Use Practices video series. Conservation Development is a development technique that allows design and layout of an entire development parcel, to conserve resources while allowing development to occur at the same density as the underlying zoning. A special form of Planned Unit Development, conservation development utilizes high standards for open space and design, coupled with design flexibility. Conservation development can be designed to meet a range of goals including conserving open space, conserving natural and cultural resources, creating amenities attractive to buyers, and creating a new neighborhood that is an asset to the community. In many cases, concentrating development on just a portion of a development tract can minimize the cost of providing and maintaining public services and utilities.

Local Climate Change Action Planning in the Philippines
A video on how local governments in the Philippines can take action against climate change. *long version* The video was produced by UN-HABITAT Philippines: http://unhabitat.org.ph/, for the Department of Interior and Local Government – Local Government Academy. It was produced in the framework of the Vertical Integration and Learning for Low Emission Development (V-LED) project. To find out more about the V-LED project visit: https://localclimateaction.org The Philippines economic growth in recent years, mostly occurring in cities and urban areas, brought greater opportunities such as better public services and enhanced social equity. This growth, if not managed properly and when done unsustainably, will lead to problems like congestion, greater air pollution, and higher demand for energy. With this urbanisation trend, comes rising greenhouse gas emissions causing climate change that brings in stronger typhoons, increased rainfall and long dry spells. If not addressed, socio-economic activities of both families and communities will be affected - making it crucial for government leaders to take adaption and mitigation actions to avoid the devastating impact of climate change. Local leaders should ensure that investments consider the environment to provide quality of life for all, now and in the future. Low emission development lowers GHG emissions and ensures climate compatible and resilient development, leading to economic, social and environmental benefits. It ensures that developments are resilient against a changing climate. The Philippines submitted its Intended Nationally Determined Contributions to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change with the aim of reducing GHG emissions in agriculture, waste, industry, transport, forestry and energy. Although a nationally let process, the transition to low emission development needs to mobilise the emission reduction potential at the local level. Agriculture, waste, industry, forestry, transport and energy contribute to greenhouse gas emissions. These sectors are covered in the Nationally Determined Contributions or NDC. As frontline institutions Local Government Units (LGUs) can transition to action plans that support vertical integration and learning a low emission development. This dimension in planning is necessary to stimulate urban climate actions. Local governments formulate Local Climate Change Action Plans LCCAP which are integrated into or derived from long term plans like the CLUP and CDP. Using local planning processes your LGU can integrate adaptation and mitigation policies in every step of your development. While national leadership establishes the policy framework for achieving climate resilient and low emission development, you enforce these policies and decide your resources. LGUs formulate land use plans and enforce zoning ordinances, governing urban sprawl. With low emission development, your LGU can reduce energy costs, address local pollution and lower carbon emissions while improving local economy and creating new businesses and job opportunities. Your locality has much to gain from taking concrete actions to achieve low emission development: reduce health impacts from air pollution, sustainable energy from more secure and cheaper energy supplies reduce poverty and enhance safety; access to climate action funding such as the green climate fund, adaption fund and people survival fund. The multiple benefits of climate action is a win-win situation for climate protection and local development. In fact there are local government units which are already demonstrating leadership for bringing down emissions. One example is the diversion of waste into compost used to grow plants and crops, and processing of garbage into alternative fuels. There are more examples from other LGUs that have also transitions towards this development model with the assistance of various programmes and using tools and resources for integrating low emission development into planning and decision making. Such as the USAID Philippine B-Leaders in partnership with the Climate Change Commission; the CCC Low Emission Capacity Building PHL Project; the Urban LEDS implemented by the United Nation Human Settlements Programme in Partnership with ICLEI and EU; the V-LED project, implemented by UN Habitat in partnership with adelphi and support from the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety. How do you start? You start by including GHG inventory and management into your local plans. Investment programmes and budget processes with the end goal of producing sustainable solutions. Your responsibility is clear: addressing emissions needs to be an integral part of your development planning and investment programming with meaningful participation from all stakeholders, with your city and other local governments leading the way.

Reduce, Reuse and Recycle, to enjoy a better life | Educational Video for Kids.
The three Rs Hello I am the Earth, yup the very planet you live on. There are three words which start with the letter R which I love. They are: Reduce, reuse and recycle. Do you know why I love them so much? Because they are almost magical words. Together they can make all living things as well as myself be happier. I said that they are “almost” magical because without your help it won't work, they need all of you children in order to do the trick. Each and every one of you are the real 3Rs magicians, those three words which can change the world. Do you want to know how? Yes? Well let's find out. The first R is for reduce. If you think about it, there are many things you don’t need. When you go to the supermarket, I am sure you could take your own canvas bags instead of using disposable ones given to you. This way you will be reducing the amount of plastic which is very contaminating. And I am sure that you don’t need to print out so many documents or photos, nor leave the lights, television or computer on when you are not using them. If you remember this, you will be reducing the amount of paper being used as well as energy, and in turn will be helping reduce the contamination. And these are just a few examples. I am sure you can think of many more different ways to reduce what you are using or creating unnecessary waste. The following question will help you with this task: Do I really need this or is this just a whim? The second R is for recycling. Now it is easier than ever to recycle things we don’t need any more so that they can be reused. Near your home you can find places, like the recycling station and containers for cans, plastic, paper or organic waste. They each have their specific colors to make them easier. By using them, you will avoid contaminating nature, the rivers and seas as well as the atmosphere, which is the air we breathe. And finally we have the third R, which refers to reuse. How many things do you think we can reuse again and again instead of throwing them away? Let´s see…a piece of paper that has only one side printed on it, a carton box, a plastic bottle…you think now. With just a bit of imagination, I am sure you will come up with many more exciting and fun new uses for them. And remember: if you apply the 3Rs rule, you will make me a much cleaner planet, with less contamination and where we all can enjoy a better life. Because as you know…children can make the world of difference.

Endangered Species Vulnerable Species Rare Species Endemic Species Extinct Species Forest & Wildlife Protection Programmes by Government In 1972, a comprehensive Wildlife Act was enacted by Central Government of India lead by Ms Indira Gandhi, which provides the main legal framework for conservation and protection of wildlife in India. The two main objectives of the Act are : • to provide protection to the endangered species listed in the schedule of the Act and • to provide legal support to the conservation areas of the country classified as National parks, sanctuaries and closed areas. For the purpose of effective conservation of flora and fauna, special steps have been initiated by the Government of India in collaboration with UNESCO’s ‘Man and Biosphere Programme’. There are 92 National parks and 492 wildlife sanctuaries covering an area of 15.67 million hectares in the country. National Park • it is a Relatively large area consisting of one or more ecosystems, and it operates at National Level. • No human activity or settlement allowed i.e. human interference is totally prohibited • Villagers cannot graze their animals and national parks have Extremely strict rules about jungle produce collection for ex. Honey To know further about national parks in India, refer to our video on : Top 10 National Park in India Wildlife Sanctuary • In wildlife sanctuary Regulated human activities are allowed for example : Grazing of animals, Firewood collection and Tourism. • It can be created for a particular species which is not the case with national parks; • Wildlife Sanctuary operates at State Level. • A sanctuary can be upgraded to a National park but not vice versa To know further about Wildlife sanctuary in India, refer to our video on : Top 10 Wildlife Sanctuaries in India -------------------------------------------------------------- India has also introduced many Special schemes like Project Tiger (1973) and Project Elephant (1992) to conserve some endangered species and their habitat in a sustainable manner. We will now look at a few of those now. 1) Project Tiger : • There are 50 tiger reserves in India which are governed by Project Tiger which is administrated by the National Tiger Conservation Authority(NTCA). • India is home to 70 percent of tigers in the world. In 2006, there were 1,411 tigers which increased to 1,706 in 2011 and 2,226 in 2014.The total number of wild tigers has risen to 3,891 in 2016 according to World Wildlife Fund and Global Tiger Forum. 2) Project Elephant • Project Elephant (PE) is initiated for protection of elephants, their habitats and corridors. • It also seeks to address the issues of human-elephant conflict and welfare of domesticated elephants. The Project is being implemented in 13 States / Union Territories. • Monitoring of Illegal Killing of Elephants ( MIKE ) 3) Project Snow Leopard • Project Snow Leopard aims To safeguard and conserve India’s unique natural heritage of high altitude wildlife populations and their habitats. • Snow Leopard is globally endangered species as well as the most important flagship species of the mountain region. 4) Sea Turtle Project • With the objective of conservation of olive ridley turtles and other endangered marine turtles, Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change initiated the Sea Turtle Conservation Project in collaboration of UNDP in 1999 with Wildlife Institute of India, Dehradun as the Implementing Agency. • The project is being implemented in 10 coastal States of the country with special emphasis in State of Orissa. Biosphere Reserve A Biosphere Reserve is a unique representation of ecosystem of terrestrial and coastal areas which are internationally recognized within the framework of UNESCO’s Man and Biosphere (MAB) Programme. The Biosphere Reserve aims at achieving the three objective as depicted . Core zone Buffer zone Transition zone Conservation Reserves • Particularly the areas adjacent to National Parks and Sanctuaries and the areas which link one Protected Area with another can also be declared as conservation reserves. Community Reserves • Can be declared by the State Government in any private or community land, not comprised within a National Park, Sanctuary or a Conservation Reserve To know further about biosphere reserves in India, refer to our video on : Top 10 Biosphere Reserves in India UNESCO list | Biosphere Reserves in a nutshell

2014 Land Awards Winner: Agricultural Land Use Inventory Program, Ministry of Agriculture
The Strengthening Farms Program is working to create a comprehensive inventory of agricultural land that helps government agencies understand how land is actually being used. Data is collected on a parcel by parcel basis, providing information on the type of agricultural and non-agricultural land uses, types of irrigation, and what land is potentially available for future food production. Current, accurate data allows decision makers to make realistic plans and policies related to the protection of agricultural land. It can also be integrated with other information – related to soil and climate change, for example – to help with emergency planning, water management and other essential activities. Since this work began in 2006, 32 communities have benefitted directly by using the inventories as a basis for their agricultural area and economic development plans.

Leven Carrs - Building a Wetland
Leven Carrs was once and extensive wetland, rich in wildlife. But years of drainage, starting in the Roman times, lead to the land becoming an area of agriculture and pasture. Now, in an example of how modern farming and wildlife conservation can benefit each other, the Leven Carrs project, led by Albanwise Ltd and Natural England, has led to the reinstatement of this once lost wetland and the biodiversity it supports. An article detailing the project can be found in Conservation Land Management Autumn 2018 | Vol. 16 No. 3. If you like this episode, or any other, why not hit that subscribe button?

Amélie Augé - Forget the crystal ball: Spatial scenarios to conservation planning for the GBR coast
Seminar title: Forget the crystal ball: Applying spatial scenarios to conservation planning for the GBR coast. Seminar type: CoralCoE seminar series Presented by: Amélie Augé Date: Thursday 5th of September 2013 Abstract: Coastal zones around the world have been under high and increasing sporadic development pressures on land and at sea. Functioning coastal ecosystems require healthy cohesively-managed terrestrial and marine areas. The combination and complexity of these two issues for coastal management generate the wicked problem of coastal syndromes. In this talk, I will start by showing why coastal management is such a great challenge for conservation planning and why we need a novel approach that requires forgetting the crystal ball most commonly used. Qualitative scenarios have been used in the past to facilitate coastal management; however, spatially-explicit scenario planning can be applied to coastal zones and has flexibility advantages that should allow conservation planning to include the uncertainty in future coastal development. The Great Barrier Reef World Heritage Area (GBRWHA) is a typical example of a coastal marine protected area with a fast and unpredictably changing coast and where the terrestrial part has not been considered. This talk will end with the presentation of the progress and intents of an on-going project aimed at developing a new methodology to incorporate the field of scenarios in systematic conservation planning using land use change modelling and impact and goal assessments with spatial analyses to draw strategic priorities for conservation along the GBRWHA coast in the light of plausible coastal development in the next 25 years. Biography: Amélie took a postdoctoral research fellowship at the ARC CoE Coral Reef Studies in mid-2012 in the Conservation Planning Program working on the NERP (National Environmental Research Program) project “Conservation planning for a changing coastal zone” led by Prof. Bob Pressey. She has a PhD in Zoology (2011) and an MSc in Spatial Ecology (2007) from the University of Otago, New Zealand. Amélie works in the realm of marine and coastal ecology and conservation and her research interests include the use of spatial tools (GIS, spatio-temporal analyses, bio-logging, habitat mapping) to understand and mitigate impacts of anthropogenic activities and changes on wildlife and natural values. Her postdoc work includes scenario planning, land use change modelling, impact assessments, and development of conservation goals and priorities for coastal protection and restoration for the Great Barrier Reef coastal zone.
See how a manure lagoon works and why farmers want to build even more of them
If you buy a house on the 9 million acres of agricultural districts in New York state, you sign a disclosure form that says the farmers near you have the "right to farm" even when it causes noise, dust and odors. Still, when a farmer decides to build a lagoon to store millions of gallons of liquid manure, the neighbors are often disappointed to find out they have little say in the matter. They can also be shocked to hear that government sometimes requires manure storage and even helps pay for it. Since 1994, 461 manure storages have been built with state financial help, according to the NYS Department of Agriculture and Markets. Others are privately or federally funded. The "Right to Farm" is a state law that protects 25,316 farms on 6.5 million of those 9-million acres of agricultural districts. The rest of that land is occupied by people who do not farm. Dan Palladino, president of the Onondaga County Farm Bureau, encourages farmers to be proactive and share their plans even when it isn't required. "We have to all work together," Palladino said. "If we're in an agricultural district, we have to understand what the farmer needs to do and we have to understand what the public needs and what we can do to help them." Mike McMahon, of McMahon's EZ Acres in Homer, allowed us to fly a drone over the lagoon on his dairy farm and explained how it was designed. McMahon, other farmers and government officials say storage is the best practice to protect the environment from runoff. Storage allows farmers to spread manure on fields on only the best days – when the soil is dry and less likely to run off of wet and frozen ground into lakes and streams. What kinds of lagoons are built in New York state? Before a lagoon is built, farmers test the make-up and quality of the soil to understand the geology of the site, said Mark Burger, executive director of the Onondaga County Soil and Water Conservation District. If the soil can support an earthen lagoon, it can be dug into the ground and lined with clay, he said. Some earthen lagoons are also reinforced with concrete bottoms or walls. If the soil does not support an earthen lagoon, farmers can use a plastic product called "octaform." It has a series of hollow, plastic rectangular chambers filled with concrete. That type of storage is also easy to cover to keep out rain or to digest methane gas for energy. Farmers also consider the type of bedding they use when they choose the type of material to use in lagoon construction, he said. The bedding goes into the lagoon along with the manure. For example, if the animals bed on sand, farmers like to build a concrete floor to make it easier to capture the sand and use it on the soil, he said. Soil and water conservation districts help small farms implement official environmental management plans, which address manure storage and other issues, state officials said. Large industrial farms are regulated through a CAFO (concentrated animal feeding operation) permit, which requires a comprehensive nutrient management plan that takes into account the farm's slopes, nearby waterways, soil erosion potential, farmstead facilities and nutrient sources. Engineers must also work within USDA standards and must be able to divert surface groundwater and contain the precipitation that falls into the storage. "You've got highly trained professionals out there, taking these corings or these trenchings and analyzing the soil and the geology to make that determination," he said. "It's not just you and I going out there to do it." How many times have they leaked? There have been three manure storage overflows and one leak in the last five years in the Central New York region, which generally covers Oswego to Broome counties, according to the DEC. The latest incident is still under investigation. In February, a structural issue with a lagoon forced farmers to spread manure on snow on an unusually warm winter day. The snow melted, causing manure to flow into Cayuga Lake. In 2013, manure overflowed into a small tributary from a storage at Ashland Farms, in Cayuga County. The DEC issued a $3,000 fine and the farm was required to increase the size of the storage. EFS Farm, in Madison County, was assessed a $750 penalty after an overflow in 2013. The manure ponded in a field and did not reach surface water, according to the DEC. O'Hare Dairy II, in Chenango County, had an overflow in 2011 that did reach surface water. The DEC assessed a $1,750 penalty and required repairs and an emergency action plan. Video by Michelle Breidenbach, Christa Lemczak and N. Scott Trimble. Illustrations by Peter Allen. Music by MK2.

Drainage Water Management Awareness
Presented by Patrick H. Willey, P.E., Wetland and Drainage Engineer, USDA NRCS West National Technology Support Center; Hamid Farahani, Ph.D., Water Management Engineer, USDA NRCS East National Technology Support Center; Ruth Book, Ph.D., P.E., State Conservation Engineer, USDA NRCS Illinois; and Jerry Walker, P.E., Agricultural Engineer, USDA NRCS Central National Technology Support Center Unrestricted agricultural drainage systems contribute to increased loss of nitrates and other soluble constituents that end up in nearby water bodies. This creates economic, environmental, and human health concerns downstream. A prime example is evident in the Mississippi River Basin, within which the nitrate carried in drainage water is contributing to hypoxia in the Gulf of Mexico. Drainage research and extension programs are exploring ways to reduce the potential environmental impacts of agricultural drainage while retaining its agronomic benefits. Some practices that can reduce nitrate loads on drained soils include: growing winter forage or cover crops, nutrient management, bioreactors, constructed wetlands, and drainage water management (DWM) or controlled drainage. Controlled drainage is an effective practice for reducing nitrate losses from drainage systems, yet its adoption has not been widespread. This presentation explores the importance of DWM via control structures and its impact on drainage water quantity and quality. Basic DWM planning and implementation information is presented so NRCS conservation planners can begin to add DWM to their toolbox of practices for water quality improvement.

White-tailed Deer Management in Missouri (2014)
Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC) Resource Science Deer Biologist Jason Sumners provides an update on the current status of Missouri's deer population, development of the white-tailed deer management plan and provides a summary of the future direction of the deer management program. The goal of the deer management program is to use science-based wildlife management combined with stakeholder input and human dimensions information to maintain biologically and socially balanced deer populations throughout the state that provide recreational opportunities, and minimize human-deer conflicts. As deer populations in Missouri have changed over the last 75 years so have management strategies. Although management of white-tailed deer has always been both biologically and socially complex, management today can be more challenging due to the complexity of interrelated factors such as land use, ownership, hunter density, and human population levels. The regulatory process utilized by the Missouri Department of Conservation incorporates science-based information and stakeholder input including annual surveys, bowhunter observations, harvest data, and population modeling.

What is FLPMA?
It’s FLPMA’s 40th anniversary! Wait what…what is a FLMPA and do we still use it? More importantly -- why should we care? FLPMA (pronounced Flip-ma), is shorthand for the Federal Land Policy and Management Act. It was an act of Congress that President Gerald Ford signed into law on October 21, 1976, and it is the law that defines multiple use and sustained yield as our approach to managing public lands. It is often called the BLM’s organic act, since it gives us the authority to do a lot of the things we do on a daily basis. Again, why should we care? Well there’s SIX – yes six reasons! 1. FLPMA mandates the permanent federal ownership of public lands. FLPMA makes it law that public lands are retained in Federal ownership. This may seem like a no-brainer, but until FLPMA became law, there was still a question about whether or not public lands were to be kept in federal control or made available for sale. Interestingly, FLPMA repealed President Lincoln’s Homesteading Act of 1864, ending homesteading. FLMPA tells BLM to do lots of stuff with public land – AKA “multiple use. Protecting scientific, scenic, historical, ecological, environmental, air and atmospheric, water resource, and archaeological values; whew that’s a mouthful. Provide food and habitat for fish and wildlife and domestic animals. Provide for outdoor recreation and other human uses too. Like timber, minerals, and grazing. 2. FLPMA repealed more than 1,000 out-of-date land management statutes (really 1,000), replacing them with new policies, including a new planning system. Sure, it didn’t affect the big statutes like the O & C Act in Oregon, the Mineral Leasing Act, the Mining Law of 1872, the Soil Conservation Act, and about 1,000 others, but it did repeal and replace many that lingered from the days of the Grazing Service and General Land Office. 3. FLPMA mandated a new planning system for us – one with lots of public participation, not just the involvement of those who may be directly affected by a decision. It also authorized citizen advisory councils - known today as RACs 4. FLMPA changed how we manage mining and grazing on public lands. For example, FLPMA declared that claims could be invalidated if miners didn’t file copies of their claims and submit annual reports of their work, allowing the BLM – and other miners – to better know who was doing what where. FLPMA also required a new study of grazing fees and standardized grazing permit policies. Grazing advisory boards were also focused on providing input into the development of allotment management plans and how range improvement funds were distributed. 5. FLPMA created new protections for public lands. That’s pretty cool. For example, FLPMA brought the Wilderness Act of 1964 to the public lands. The BLM now manages nine wilderness areas and 88 wilderness study areas in Oregon and Washington. Contributing even more acronyms to our repertoire, FLPMA also created ACECs (Areas of Critical Environmental Concern) “where special management attention is required . . . to protect and prevent irreparable damage to important historic, cultural, or scenic values, fish and wildlife resources, or other natural systems or processes, or to protect life and safety from natural hazards.” Today, Oregon and Washington host 195 ACEC parcels, totaling almost 860,000 acres. In addition, FLPMA granted law enforcement authority to the BLM, starting with uniformed park rangers to serve in the California desert’s public lands. 6. FLPMA helped to usher in a cultural change in the BLM. BLM expanded its workforce beyond a focus on forestry and range conservation and created new professional positions in areas such as planning, recreation, archaeology, and wildlife biology. There are many more provisions within FLPMA, as well as several amendments made in later years. Of particular note is the Yaquina Head Outstanding Natural Area, created in 1980 as an amendment to FLPMA. FLPMA helped solve a lot of BLM's challenges in the 1970s, but others remain today. Nevertheless, most of the work we do today can trace its authority back to FLPMA. As Senator Henry M. "Scoop" Jackson noted, "the Federal Land Policy and Management Act of 1976 represents a landmark achievement in the management of the public lands of the United States. For the first time in the long history of the public lands, one law provides comprehensive authority and guidelines for [their] administration."

The Ethics of Systematic Conservation Planning: Trade-offs and Cooperation
David Frank The Biodiversity and Biocultural Conservation Laboratory, in collaboration with members of the University of Texas department of philosophy, is currently engaged in research on the ethics of systematic conservation planning. This short essay will introduce the goals of systematic conservation planning, and then discuss two important ethical issues: trade-offs between different values and cooperation between many agents. The argument throughout will be that the sustainability of biodiversity conservation projects requires careful attention to issues of human values and social justice. Philosophical reflection and analysis are relevant to the clarification, justification and criticism of conservation policy, and thus serve crucial roles in public debate.

Aboriginal water values and management in northern Australia
As part of the Tropical Rivers and Coastal Knowledge (TRaCK) research program, we documented and quantified Aboriginal social and economic values of aquatic resources and identified their flow links in the first study of its kind in Australia. The research was conducted over three years (2008-2010) in two tropical river catchments—the Daly River in the Northern Territory and the Fitzroy River in Western Australia—where water planners needed information on Aboriginal people's water requirements. Narrated by traditional owner, Patricia Marrfurra McTaggart, this video focuses on the research conducted in the Daly River catchment.

What is a watershed ?
One of three informational videos to promote improving water quality within Indiana. Nonpoint sources of pollution that Hoosiers can reduce and improve their quality of water are discussed. Visit www.IN.gov/idem/nps/ for more information about what you can do. A watershed is an area of land where water naturally drains to one point. Rainfall, snowmelt, and other precipitation falls on the land and flows downstream into a single lake, river, or stream. Watersheds can be large or small. The largest watersheds in the United States cover several states and drain into oceans. However, you can look at very small areas as individual watersheds, such as your back yard. Watershed boundaries are natural and manmade features that change the direction of where water flows. Hills and ridges are natural watershed boundaries because rain falling on one side of a hill will flow in one direction, while rain falling on the other side of the hill will flow into another. It is normal for watersheds to cross the borders of counties and states. Watersheds even flow from one country to the next. It is common for watersheds to follow streams and rivers from rural to urban areas and vice-versa. Why are watersheds important? It is important to keep watersheds as clean as possible for many reasons. Watersheds are the source of the water we drink. We use watersheds for recreational uses, such as boating, swimming, and fishing. Wildlife depends on watersheds for food, water, and shelter. What can harm my watershed? Nonpoint source pollution is the largest source of water pollution and the biggest threat to the health of our watersheds. Nonpoint source pollution is a variety of chemicals that precipitation washes from the land into streams and rivers. Common nonpoint source pollution includes oil residue, fertilizers, pesticides, pet waste, and soil. As water moves through the watershed, it picks up more and more nonpoint source pollution. This harms the quality of your watershed and others downstream. What can I do to protect my watershed? State and local governments, volunteer groups, and water quality professionals are working together across Indiana in Watershed Planning Groups. These groups study water quality, find the source of problems, and develop plans to improve our waters. There are many ways that you can participate in watershed planning groups. Common activities include helping develop a watershed improvement plan, educating neighborhoods about good water quality practices, and waterway cleanup projects. Conclusion Pollution isn't cute. It may be easier to leave pet waste on the ground, but what if every Hoosier did the same thing? Multiply your choice by the six million people living in Indiana. Remember, it is the little things that we do every day that can help, or harm, water quality the most. Take a minute to do what is best for our water. Find out more about nonpoint source pollution, and how to improve water quality by going to this website: http://www.in.gov/idem/nps/2369.htm . It's your watershed, your home, your future!

Jim Levitt is the director of the Program on Conservation Innovation at the Harvard Forest, Harvard University, based in Petersham, Massachusetts, and a fellow in the Department of Planning and Urban Form at the Lincoln Institute of Land Policy, based in Cambridge, Massachusetts. In addition, he has ongoing fellowships at the Harvard Kennedy School and at Highstead, an NGO advancing land conservation in New England. Levitt focuses on landmark innovations in the field of land and biodiversity conservation, both present-day and historic, that are characterized by five traits: novelty and creativity in conception, strategic significance, measurable effectiveness, international transferability, and the ability to endure. Such innovations include: the establishment of the first public open space in the English-speaking world in Boston in 1634; the creation of the world's first state and national parks at Yosemite and Yellowstone in 1864 and 1872; the invention of the world's first land trust in Massachusetts in 1891; and the ongoing emergence of landscape-scale conservation initiatives around the globe in the 20th and 21st centuries. In each of these landmark innovations, key factors for success include: the engagement of highly talented social entrepreneurs; the leveraging of some of the most advanced technologies of the day; and the use of inventive financial and organizational tools. Levitt has written and edited dozens of articles and three books on land and biodiversity conservation. He has lectured widely on the topic in venues ranging from Santiago, Chile to Beijing, China, and Montreal, Canada. Among his current efforts, Levitt is advising colleagues in Chile on the expansion of private land conservation initiatives and enabling legal frameworks in that nation. He is also engaged in an effort to link land conservation innovators at universities, colleges and independent research institutions around the globe. Recorded November 11, 2013.
