@cnnclimate: Environmentalists have removed more than 40 tons of plastic from the Pacific Ocean. And while that might seem like a lot — equivalent in weight to about 24 cars — it barely made a dent. Members of the Ocean Voyages Institute said the cleanup mission was the "largest and most successful ocean cleanup to date" in the Great Pacific Garbage Patch. Located between California and Hawaii, it is the biggest concentration of floating debris in the world. The crew removed trash including detergent bottles, plastic furniture and children's toys, and also collected fishing gear called "ghost nets" — massive nets of or polypropylene that drift and accumulate plastic debris. “What we’ve done out there is small compared to the magnitude of the problem, but it’s scalable and can be spread,” said the founder of the group. It's estimated that 1.15 to 2.41 million tons of plastic enter the ocean each year. (📸: Ocean Voyages Institute)

An incredible win for the Amazon. The Waorani have succeeded in protecting over 500,000 acres of rainforest from oil drilling. Proud to support the . @amazonfrontlines: Today, Waorani leaders gave a symbolic press conference outside Ecuador’s first oil well explaining what this historic victory means for the Waorani People and neighbouring indigenous nations across the Ecuadorian Amazon: “The court’s final ruling states very clearly that our territory is our decision and that our forest is not for sale!" said Nemonte Nenquimo Waorani leader. “This is a victory for all indigenous nations that have been manipulated and deceived by the government, and whose rights have been violated. The Government has to listen to us and respect our decisions, and the lives of all Indigenous Peoples in the Amazon.“ Now, let’s build on the Waorani's precedent-setting victory in order to defend 7 million acres more of rainforest under threat from oil extraction in the Ecuadorian Amazon!

@gretathunberg: School strike week 46. The climate crisis doesn’t go on summer holiday, and neither will we. We go on.

@everydayclimatechange: Photo by Marcio Pimenta @marpimenta for @everydayclimatechange . Amazon, Brazil 🇧🇷 . Yesterday I flew over part of the Amazon and saw how the current Brazilian government is against environmental policies. The National Institute of Space Research detected an increase of 88% in Amazon deforestation comparing June 2019 to June 2018. Since the beginning of the extreme right-wing government of President Jair Bolsonaro, there is an expansion of economic activities in the region that clear the forest for mining, agricultural expansion and livestock.

@paulnicklen: All that a grizzly bear from Alaska should worry about is its next meal, saving energy, the whereabouts of other bears, and gaining weight for the long winter hibernation ahead. What they should not be worrying about is human encroachment, mining activity, who is going to put a bullet in them from a cowardly distance, roads being built through fragile habitat, toxic mining chemicals flowing down its salmon bearing streams, harassment by low flying mining helicopters, excessive noise and overall destruction of its habitat. Thank you to everyone who weighed in on the Pebble Mine. We need you and so do these bears. Thank you for lending your voice, power and might in this cause. Go to the link in my bio.

@amazonfrontlines: The Waorani communities thank everyone standing in solidarity with their struggle: “In the name of our forests, our rivers, and our ancestors we the Waorani People thank you for standing in solidarity with us in this struggle. Our children and future generations will remember your commitment to safeguard the lungs of the earth, the Amazon. Our struggle continues and your support will continue to be vital! Now, we need more signatures to reach our goal of 500 000! ” - @waoresistencia Sign the Waorani's urgent letter! (link in bio)

The endangered vaquita is on the brink of extinction, with fewer than 15 remaining. Take action and sign the petition via the link in bio and watch the incredible fight to save them in @seaofshadows, premiering ‪7/12‬ in select theaters.

@nrdc_org: The climate crisis is altering seasonal patterns and fueling disasters across the nation. 🚨 In California, this means hotter days and more severe weather events, including wildfires. 🔥 As a result, Californians face a variety of increasing health problems, from asthma to heat strokes. California residents have much to gain from climate action—and lives to lose if we fail to clean up climate-damaging pollution. Learn more via the link in our profile. -

The government of Ecuador is still trying to auction off the ancestral lands of the Waorani for oil drilling. Link in bio to sign the petition and protect the Amazon. @amazonfrontlines

@financialtimes: 🚨 Temperatures are rising, the glaciers of the Himalayas are melting — and here’s why this is particularly significant: because the area provides water for about 800m people across Asia. 🚨 A forthcoming study surveyed decades of satellite data and found that the glaciers have been losing the equivalent of 50cm of ice vertically each year since 2000, melting twice as fast as they were during the 1975 to 2000 period. Several factors contribute to melting in the Himalayas, including settled soot and changing precipitation factors. However, the new study suggests that temperature is the single biggest factor that drives the rate of melting, underscoring the impact of climate change on an area that is a critical source of water supply for India and China. 🔸 The research comes as global carbon dioxide emissions hit a record high last year, and as the earth’s average temperature has warmed about 1C compared with pre-industrial times. 🔸 Read more at the link in our bio. 📸: PRAKASH MATHEMA/AFP/Getty Images

@greenpeace: We’re on an epic voyage from Pole to Pole, campaigning for a huge network of ocean sanctuaries. If we win, it might be one of the biggest conservation efforts in human history. . Everyone has a part to play. Are you on board yet? www.greenpeace.org/protecttheoceans .

@bbcnews: "Only rain can save Chennai from this situation." A well completely empty, and a city without water. The southern Indian city of Chennai is in crisis, after the four main water reservoirs ran completely dry. The acute water shortage has forced the city to scramble for urgent solutions and residents have to stand in line for hours to get water from government tanks. As the water levels depleted, hotels and restaurants started to shut down temporarily, and the air con was turned off in the city's metro. Officials in the city continue to try and find alternative sources of water - but the community continue to pray for rain. Tap the link in our bio to read more about Chennai's water crisis.

@mongabay: Logging and hunting have decimated a population of Bornean orangutans in Bukit Baka Bukit Raya National Park in Indonesia. Help has recently come from a pair of unlikely allies: an animal welfare group and a human health care nonprofit. Cross-disciplinary collaboration to meet the needs of ecosystems and humans is becoming an important tool for overcoming seemingly intractable obstacles in conservation. Read about it on www.mongabay.com

@time: The long journey to the Fijian village of Vunidogoloa leads to a forced into retreat by and the rising seas that come with it. Once home to more than 100 people, Vunidogoloa has been overrun by the tropical forest. Plants cover the town square. The stench of rotting rodents wafts from abandoned homes, and salt water seeps up through the soil as far as 300 ft. from Natewa Bay. A few times a year, king tides inundate the village with knee-high waters; locals were forced to place precious possessions on tall surfaces and run for the hills. And so, five years ago, Vunidogoloa was abandoned. The Fijian government built a new town about a mile up the hill at a cost of half a million dollars. Prime Minister Frank Bainimarama tells TIME he plans to move 40 Fijian villages in the coming years to cope with rising sea levels. “Every day," he says, "I think about climate change."

@cnnbusiness: Climate change is likely to cost the world’s largest public companies nearly $1 trillion over the next five years. But the opportunities for new products and services to reduce environmental damage could be worth much more. A survey published Tuesday suggests that growing demand for low-emission products and shifts in consumer preferences could generate over $2 trillion for leading businesses.

@lionrecovery: The Makame Wildlife Management Area in northern Tanzania is rich with the Maasai culture and abundant with wildlife. But living alongside lions is not easy and creates many challenges for traditional pastoralists to keep their livestock safe. LRF Director @petelindseyafrica recently made a trip to this area to visit our partner @honeyguide_tz to see how they are tackling these issues. Click the link in our bio to learn why we're hopeful this area will become critically important for wildlife. Photo: @jackdswenson
