A proposed change in the use of the bungalows of the Hotel Comino from tourism to residential could have a “serious impact” on the ecology of the island, according to the environmental impact study of the project.

This is due to the potential increase in its permanent population, which is now down to just three people.

While the likelihood of the bungalow owners being transferred to live permanently on the island is unknown, this would be of major importance. According to the EIA, this would affect the local ecology by increasing trampling in sensitive areas and increasing noise and light pollution.

Without a coordinated effort to mitigate them, the integrity of important habitats and species could be affected, he adds.

Application PA / 04777/20, by HV Hospitality Limited, proposes the redevelopment of the existing 100-room Comino Hotel in San Niklaw Bay and the bungalow complex in Santa Marija Bay, which dates back to the 1960s.

The proposed hotel would consist of 71 rooms, with various facilities, while the village of Santa Marija, with its 21 “service” bungalows, would have a restaurant and a small general store.

The EIA says these bungalows will be for sale and potential owners can choose to put their property into a rental pool, served by the hotel, and use its facilities.

EIA reports major concerns

Main negative impacts identified in evaluation by Adi Associates Environmental Consultants Ltd relate to site excavation, loss of habitat and potential damage caused by trampling by guests and residents.

The bungalows could be sold to multiple owners – it is estimated that they will house 130 residents – and, therefore, will operate year round, unlike the hotel.

This could significantly increase the risk of habitat trampling, provide additional non-ecologically responsible lighting as well as introduce exotic species to private gardens.

To mitigate these effects, the EIA recommends conditions in operating permits, such as no additional lighting by individual owners. Although no invasive and alien species are used, the potential for their introduction by individuals is a significant risk and the impact on the Natura 2000 site could be major, underlines the report.

The ecological value of pristine habitat is greater than that of restored habitat

The report also suggests that the hotel provide information on the importance of habitats and encourage guests to use existing trails.

Subject to the issuance of permits, demolition and excavation work is expected to start in the first quarter of 2022 and last approximately 14 months on the hotel site and eight months in the village. Construction of the superstructure is expected to begin in the first quarter of 2023, with the hotel and village opening together three years later, in April 2025.

The impact on geological resources is considered to be of major negative importance since the development involves the extraction of rock and soil from the site, the EIA says.

The loss of habitat at the hotel and village sites is being considered by the EIA as the hotel is set back from the coast, while the village site has increased the number of buildings. This would result in significant encroachment on the surrounding garigue if mitigation measures are not implemented.

“Irreversible” loss of habitat

The EIA report estimates that an area of ​​15,983 square meters of different habitats will be lost to accommodate the development.

“The impact is irreversible since the ecological value of virgin habitat is greater than that of restored habitat,” he continues.

“While the development’s ecological restoration plan will have a positive impact, the ecological value of the restored areas will develop in the long term and will not replace the loss of natural habitat in the short term,” he notes.

The cultural heritage would be affected by the removal of two elements of the bungalows that deserve a level 2 level of protection, he said, suggesting that the encroachment of the units towards the buffer zone of the planned chapel be reduced.

Although the consultants consider the existing hotel and bungalows to deserve a Level 3 level of protection, the impact on the cultural landscape at the hotel site is considered neutral, with no cultural heritage features nearby.

Positive impacts

On a positive note, the hotel is expected to have positive impacts on the landscape as it relates to the lower coast and built-up areas, according to the EIA.

He identified a positive impact on terrestrial ecology with regard to the elimination of exotic species on the site and the implementation of development and restoration plans.

In total, 380 protected trees will be felled, of which 63 will be destroyed because they are not transplantable.

But the extensive landscaping plan, after construction, provides for the planting of 1,281 additional protected trees.

BOTHELL – Effective October 1, 2021, a statewide ban on single-use plastic bags will go into effect in Washington. Here’s what you need to know.

Washington residents use two billion single-use plastic bags each year, according to the Department of Ecology. These single-use plastic bags are a major contaminant in rivers, streams, roads and essentially all of Washington, according to the department.

Single-use bags contain toxic chemicals that are released into the environment if not properly disposed of. Because of their thin construction, single-use bags are difficult to recycle, which means many end up in landfills or worse.

In order to combat the negative effects of this pollution on the environment, the legislator has decided to ban single-use plastic bags in 2020. COVID-19 has disrupted the supply chain of alternative bags, so that the Governor Jay Inslee delayed implementation of the ban until October. 1st 2021.

Thus, from October 1, restaurants, grocery stores and other retailers will no longer be allowed to use single-use bags, according to the Ministry of Ecology. Instead, businesses will be required to charge an 8-cent fee for reusable plastic bags and recycled paper bags. Another option for businesses is to use brown or green “compostable” plastic bags for an optional fee.

Reusable plastic bags should be at least 2.25 millimeters or approximately ninety thousandths of an inch thick and should be made of at least 20% recycled material. Paper bags must be made of at least 40% recycled material.

The 8 cent charge will not be applied to customers who use food stamps such as SNAP and WIC. The ban does not apply to single-use plastic bags used for products, cooked or prepared foods, flowers, plants or meat, according to the Department of Ecology.

Buyers can also bring their own reusable grocery bags instead of using a reusable paper or plastic bag.

Two Powys County councilors are expected to call for action on the county’s natural environment at a plenary council meeting today (September 23).

A motion from Liberal Democrat councilors Jake Berriman (Llandrindod North) and Jackie Charlton (Llangattock) will ask council to declare an “ecological emergency,” which would see council take action to protect the county’s biodiversity and wildlife.

Last year the council declared a “climate emergency” and Cllr Berriman said the declaration would go hand in hand with commitments made last year.

“We are running out of time to face the double emergencies, climatic and ecological, which threaten the survival of our civilization and our way of life,” he said.

“This summer we have seen horrific forest fires in Russia, America, Greece and Turkey and catastrophic flooding in China, Afghanistan, Belgium and Germany, and the floods are affecting the communities of the Powys with a increased frequency and severity.

“However, climate change cannot be mitigated and stopped if we ignore the ongoing and interwoven ecological disaster.

“The State of Radnorshire Wildlife report (2017) shows a loss of 40 local plant species, 95% of our native eel population and 63% of Welsh butterflies. The ecological crisis must not be forgotten. We must act now.”

The motion will ask council to declare an ecological emergency to demonstrate the council’s commitment to protecting the natural environment, biodiversity and wildlife of the Powys, and also calls on council to express support for the climate emergency bill. and ecological, initially presented to Parliament in September 2020.

The bill calls on the UK to take responsibility for its fair share of greenhouse gas emissions, actively restore biodiversity-rich habitats and end environmental damage from production, transport and disposal of consumer goods.

Cllr Jackie Charlton, who supports the motion due to go to full council today, added:

“Powys County councilors have shown admirable leadership in recognizing the climate emergency and committing to a goal of net zero carbon in council service delivery by 2030.

“We can and must be just as daring in the fight against the ecological emergency.

“Our two Conservative MPs must also rise up and do their part by voting for the EWC bill. Our motion calls on the Council to send an official letter urging them to do so.”

“The scrap metal sellers dispose of the waste very roughly and end up harming the ecology and also losing the precious metals that can be extracted from this waste,” she said.

Gupta said the scrap could produce precious metals like gold, silver, platinum and other metals if properly recycled.

The PCB has corded the recyclers with the required infrastructure and collects the waste to channel it to reduce the impact on the environment.

“There is no doubt that consumers will be reimbursed a little less for their waste, but they will act as responsible citizens and do their part to reduce the damage to nature with their ever increasing volume of electronic waste,” said Gupta.

There are 25 registered electronic waste recyclers in India and only one at J&K located in Jammu.

The government is establishing an integrated recycling plant in Jammu and collection centers are being set up in all districts. Electronic waste contains chemicals and hazardous metals such as mercury, cadmium, lead, polybromates, lithium and barium.

These components are dangerous to human health and many of them are known to cause abnormalities and malignant tumors. Their harmful effects on the brain, kidneys, liver and other organs have been documented by many researchers.

Disposing of electronic waste in an unscientific way leads to its infiltration into the food and water cycles and inevitably reaches the human body.

The olivelo ecological life park was born with a participatory understanding

In line with the goal of the Metropolitan Mayor of Izmir, Tunç Soyer, to create “living parks” where the people of Izmir integrate into nature and forests, the Olivelo Ecological Life Park project continues in Güzelbahçe Yelki. In the process carried out with non-governmental organizations, local populations, experts and environmentalists with an appropriate and participatory approach, the experiences of citizens working as shepherds in the region were also included in the project.

In line with the goal of creating 2.5 million square meters of new green space in the city, which is among the electoral pledges of Izmir Metropolitan Mayor Tunç Soyer, work continues for the Ecological Living Park d ‘Olivelo, which will be one of the main links of the “35 Living Park” project. With an on-site and participatory approach, non-governmental organizations, local populations, experts and environmentalists come to the region to lead workshops and determine walking and cycling routes. The Metropolitan Municipality also met with the citizens of the region who earn their living as a shepherd. In the workshop organized to transfer the experiences of the shepherds to the project, the areas where the shepherds graze goats and sheep were visited. Workshop, production and design work will continue during the 6 months of project work, after which the park will be open to visitors.

The shepherds supported the project

Ahmet Çetin, who is a cattle breeder in the area, said that the profession was inherited from his ancestors and expressed his joy that they were also asked for their opinion on the project, and said: “He is happy. that our region and the natural beauties will be open to all. People will come here and spend time in contact with nature. I would like to thank the Mayor of Izmir Metropolitan Municipality for this project. The shepherd named Yakup Serçe said it’s great that this project brings people and nature together.

There will be a tourist and cycling route

The Izmir Metropolitan Municipality, which determined many different areas such as Gediz Delta, Yamanlar Mountain, Flamingo Nature Park, Meles Valley for the 35 living parks to be established on the excursion route of ‘IzMiras, and has started the planning studies for each area, has a 57-hectare special area in Güzelbahçe Yelki within the framework of the Olivelo Wildlife Ecological Park Project. It will preserve the natural texture of the region, raise awareness of the olive (Delice Olive), which is the cultural and natural heritage of the region, and combine the region with the European network of cycle paths (EuroVelo) to make it an important bicycle. . station. With the workshops to be held in the region, the region will make important contributions to urban culture in terms of production, economy, ecological values ​​and living practices. The important objective of the project was determined to be the awareness of the natural values ​​of the region by maintaining a sustainable, ecological environment, less intervention and more protection as well as the on-site, participatory and sharing process. In this area there are a total of 11 berries, mainly olives, pineapples, Anatolian bonito and red pines.

The design was determined by a national competition

The Izmir Metropolitan Municipality opened a design competition in 2019 for the Olivelo Common Ecological Living Zone project. Following the jury’s evaluations, the team composed of architect Ömer Selçuk Baz, architect Doğu Kaptan, landscape architect Zeynep Hagür Sorguç and landscape architect Ata Turak won the first prize of the competition. in which 43 teams participated. The basis of the project proposed by the competition team is to preserve and develop the natural texture and setting of the place, and to limit the human presence on the place to the point of being a temporary visitor, an observer.

For centuries, sailors have reported a strange phenomenon: the entire ocean shines with a marvelous white light extending as far as the eye can see, which earned it the name of the “milky sea” effect. These very rare sightings could be called the mad ramblings of drunken sailors if they had not been confirmed by entire crews.

These milky seas, sometimes called mareel, can span tens of thousands of square kilometers (as large as some countries) and are bright enough to be seen by modern satellites. They have been described as sailing through a snow field or cloud tops. Today, scientists have scoured countless satellite images in search of milky seas and for the first time had the opportunity to study these ephemeral phenomena directly.

In the process, scientists confirmed long-held hypotheses about Milky Seas that they are caused by bioluminescent bacteria. Billions of billions of them, in fact. And that’s just the beginning.

Turning on the lights on the dark sea

“The sea was bright in spots and in the wake of the ship, a uniform, slightly milky color. When the water was put in a bottle, it made sparks… ”

The above quote is actually the very first entry in Charles Darwin’s zoological diary written during his iconic voyage aboard the Beagle just off the coast of Tenerife on January 6, 1832. What the British naturalist saw was a prime example of bioluminescence, which refers to the light produced by a chemical reaction within a living organism.

Bioluminescence is so common and useful to living things that scientists believe it evolved independently at least 40 times both on land and in the sea.

More … than 75% of deep sea creatures are believed to produce their own light. Monkfish, for example, use bioluminescent lures that resemble fishing rods to attract their prey. Closer to the sea surface, bioluminescence is generated by plankton called Shimmering Noctiluca, commonly known as “spark of the sea”.

However, Milky Seas are a treat because they are incredibly rare. On average, they are only seen twice a year, and mainly in the waters around the northwest Indian Ocean and off the coast of Indonesia. They also cover much greater distances than planktonic glow.

Satellites illuminate

As they rarely appear, Milky Seas have always proven to be a bit of a mystery, but modern satellite readings can change that.

Using NOAA’s weather satellites, the researchers trained computers to identify milky seas in real time, opening up the possibility of studying these elusive phenomena before they disintegrate.

“We now have a way to proactively identify these candidate areas of Milky Seas”, noted Steve miller, a senior researcher at Colorado State University and lead author of the new study, published in Scientific reports. “If we have assets in the area, the assets could be deployed forward in a SWAT type response.”

Miller explains that milky seas are produced by light bacteria Vibrio harveyi. These bacteria remain dormant until their number exceeds a critical threshold – 100 million cells per milliliter of water. Once you’ve crossed that threshold, it’s as if a biological switch is flipped and bacteria transform the ocean into a milky sea.

Scientists believe bacteria do this to deliberately attract the attention of fish that eat them. It sounds very strange and counterintuitive at first glance, but it’s actually a pretty clever ploy. Bacteria swell in large numbers feasting on massive algae blooms, but this food is quickly depleted. Once in the stomach of the fish, bacteria thrive in the intestines just like many other bacteria live inside our bodies.

Miller began using satellite imagery to explore the effect of the Milky Sea in 2004. However, the technology at the time was poor, so the observations turned out to be unclear and impossible to use. That changed with the Day / Night Band instrument which was commissioned in 2011 aboard the Suomi National Polar-orbiting Partnership (NPP) of NOAA and the Joint Polar Satellite System (JPSS) satellites. This Day / Night Band (DNB) instrument can break down light into gradients, allowing satellites to see through city lights and forest fires.

The researchers determined which were the most common places where milky seas have been observed over the past 200 years, and then focused on those regions. This hunt proved to be successful, and Miller and his colleagues identified more than a dozen milky sea events between 2012 and 2021, the largest of which occurred south of Java in 2009.

NOAA satellite images confirmed that this particular milky sea had grown to monstrous proportions, spanning over 100,000 square kilometers, roughly the size of Kentucky. The number of bacteria participating in this event is simply inconceivable. Perhaps 100 billion billion cells were involved, which is about as many as there are stars in the observable universe.

These observations have helped unravel many previously mysterious aspects of the formation of the Milky Sea. For example, water temperature and chlorophyll are very important.

However, other questions remain unanswered. These include the thickness of the milky broth and the uncertainties as to whether algal blooms are indeed the main food source for the bacteria. Scientists should find themselves in the middle of such a milky sea to be better equipped to answer these questions.

“Perhaps the most practical revelation is how long a Milky Sea can last. While some only last a few days, the one near Java lasted over a month. This means that it is possible to deploy research vessels to these distant events while they are occurring. This would allow scientists to measure them in a way that reveals their full composition, how they are formed, why they are so rare, and what their ecological significance is in nature, ”Miller said. written in an article.

Xin huang wants to make modeling and using big data easier for everyone, especially environmentalists who don’t have a lot of computer programming experience. As a third-year doctoral student at the Center for Ecosystem Science and Society at Northern Arizona University, Huang saw a technical barrier between the Earth system modeling community and environmentalists who wish to improve models with data: coding.

That’s why she created a user interface called “MIDA” – model independent data assimilation – which allows a scientist to enhance a model with data without extensive coding experience. The resulting study, “A model-independent data assimilation module (MIDA) and its applications in ecology, ”Was published in Development of geoscientific models and is Huang’s first senior author publication.

“A model is a powerful tool for approaching the future, which is why we wanted to expand access with this software,” Huang said. “In this data-rich era, we are using data assimilation to integrate abundant observations into models. If an environmentalist wishes to train a model but does not have extensive programming experience, he may encounter technical problems. This software aims to remove this barrier.

Huang is a member of Yiqi Luo EcoLab, where she and her colleagues are working to make Earth system models faster and more accurate through data assimilation and the matrix approach. “Even if a model is perfect, we need observations to constrain it. So, data assimilation is a tool we use to bring the model and our observations together, to create a clearer picture of what the future looks like. “

Huang, who received his master’s degree from Tsinghua University in China, said he published in Development of geoscientific models means a lot to her, because the journal is a reference in its field. The article was co-authored by the research associate Come Jiang, postdoctoral fellow Enqing Hou, and professor of the Regents Yiqi Luo of the Center for Ecosystem Science and Society, and Assistant Professor Igor steinmacher and professor of the regents Andrew Richardson from the School of Computer Science, Computer Science and Cyber ​​Systems.

What’s next for Huang? She plans to use MIDA and data from the SPRUCE project in northern Minnesota to improve ecological predictions.

“Climate forecasts, like weather forecasts, come with uncertainties,” Huang said. “When we talk about modeling future aspects of climate, this uncertainty is enormous, especially around the nature of carbon sources and sinks and the processes that drive them. This is the job I want to dive into next. “

New research conducted by scientists at Oklahoma State University and published in the Journal of Applied Ecology indicates that weather radars can predict more than the next storm: They are effective tools for predicting bird collisions.

Up to 1 billion birds die each year by colliding with windows or buildings. The victims are native species – a wide variety of birds of the North American avifauna, such as warblers, thrushes, hummingbirds, sparrows and orioles, which fly in the structures during spring or fall migrations. The decline in native bird populations worries many conservationists, who are looking for ways to avoid these deaths.

“A lot of birds that collide are nocturnal migrants that fly primarily at night because they are so small and have such a high metabolism that they would overheat during the day,” said Scott Loss, associate professor of ecology. of natural resources at OSU. and management. “The effects of light pollution in cities and around high-rise buildings can attract and confuse these migrating birds, causing them to collide.”

Many birds travel at night, using the stars and other orientation cues, such as detection

Earth’s magnetic field, but buildings and other tall structures can be difficult to identify. This is especially true of the disorienting power of light pollution coupled with the lethal effects of window glass. Loss has extensively studied bird collisions over the past few years, and this new investigation, supported by OSU Ag Research, is the first to involve a weather radar system. Birds fly high enough in the atmosphere and in groups large enough that their activity can be detected by radar beams intended to track airplanes, precipitation and storms.

“Radars have been used to study bird migration for over 50 years,” Loss said. “Migratory birds look different from rain and storms. Most meteorologists have a way to turn off this ‘clutter’ and filter it to focus on precipitation, but biologists have learned they can do the trick. contrary.”

When precipitation and weather conditions are filtered out, scientists can use radar technology to monitor dust, insects and birds. As a doctoral student in the Department of Ecology and Natural Resource Management from 2016-2020, Jared Elmore monitored bird activity on the NEXRAD radar made available to the public by the National Weather Service.

Now a research associate at Mississippi State University, Elmore’s thesis focused on several bird conservation issues. As a participant in the Knopf Doctoral Fellowship Program in Avian Ecology and Conservation, he targeted Stillwater by collecting data from radar sites near Enid, Tulsa and Oklahoma City.

“I downloaded the radar files through Amazon Cloud Services and learned to code to identify the bird signatures on the screen,” he said. For two years, from April to October, Riding conducted daily surveys in 16 designated buildings on the OSU campus and in Stillwater.

“It is important to study collisions because it is such a major source of mortality for these birds,” Riding said.

Other co-authors outside of OSU included Kyle Horton of Colorado State University and Andrew Farnsworth of Cornell University. Both are international leaders in the use of radar images to study and predict bird migration patterns.

“The analytical approaches developed by our collaborators, such as the method to filter out objects that were probably not birds, were crucial for the research,” said Loss.

Birds detected on nighttime radar scans were directly correlated with collision deaths. Riding observed at Stillwater the next morning.

“We can calculate the rate of migratory traffic by estimating the number of birds that cross an imaginary line during a night,” said Loss. “Nights with heavy migratory traffic on the radar resulted in more casualties from bird strikes found at dawn.”

The weather radar wonder of bird collision research was featured in the March issue of Discover magazine, and the group plans to share their findings with environmentalists across the country. Loss and Farnsworth are also working together on a bird-window collision project known as Lights Out Texas.

The coalition of nonprofit conservation organizations, universities and government organizations are partnering with owners, building managers and city leaders to reduce light pollution and bird strikes in neighborhoods across the downtown of major cities in Texas.
