Last week the Illegal Wildlife Trade Conference in London took place 🎡
We can already share some good news 📰⤵️

The conference has seen renewed commitments by global leaders. Read the declaration below

Among others, First Lady Margaret Kenyatta affirmed Kenya’s leadership and commitment to eradicate illegal trade in wildlife across the world. Kenya has recorded a significant decline in poaching due to its enhanced wildlife law enforcement efforts and the government’s proactive anti-poaching measures

Moreover, a new coalition of political leaders, conservationists and celebrities dedicated to defeating the illegal trade in ivory has been formed ahead of the Illegal Wildlife Trade conference in London. At the IWT conference, the first members of the newly formed Ivory Alliance 2024 have been confirmed.

Life is not easy for seeds 🌰🌱 Avoiding ending up as food for animals and finding the right time and spot to germinate are two common problems. A recent study suggests that the means by which tropical seeds from pioneer tree species tackle these problems are evolutionarily connected

These results are especially relevant from a restoration point of view as pioneer species are crucial to restore damaged ecosystems 🌳🌳🌳

A census led by the government of Nepal has found that the tiger population in the country nearly doubled over the past ten years 🐅✖️2️⃣️
The new numbers indicate that there are now an estimated 235 wild tigers in the country, nearly doubling the baseline of around 121 tigers in 2009

This would make Nepal set to become the first country to double its national tiger population in the ambitious Tx2 goal, adopted by the world’s 13 tiger range countries at the St. Petersburg Tiger Summit in 2010 📈🌎
