Vital cycle link opens up New Forest National Park to Southampton and Waterside communities

Marchwood to Totton cycle path

Published Friday 6 November 2015

Communities on the east of the New Forest can now access the National Park car-free thanks to a missing section of cycle path which has just opened.

The 2km off-road path joining Marchwood to Totton means cyclists no longer have to use the dangerous Bury Road and cope with large number of lorries travelling to and from nearby industrial estates.

The work was paid for with £195,000 from the New Forest National Park Authority’s £2m cycling fund from the Department for Transport, with Marchwood Aggregates Ltd contributing £120,000 for construction and materials.

New Forest District Council gave £25,000 from its ‘section 106 agreement’ planning levies and £10,000 came from an anonymous benefactor. The Barker-Mill Estates provided the land and Hampshire County Council managed the project and connected it to the road.

The smooth surface of the two metre-wide path means cyclists can travel in both directions and the path is suitable for all types of bikes.

New Forest National Park Authority member David Harrison said: ‘Our communities have waited many years for a safe link for walking and cycling and Marchwood Parish Council has worked hard campaigning for this link.

This scheme is a fantastic example of organisations, business and the community working together and people are already using this route to leave their cars at home, get fit and enjoy the wonderful New Forest environment.

It means people can also cycle safely into Southampton for work and to local schools and colleges.’

Community members gathered on Friday 6 November to officially open the project and celebrated with a mass cycle ride of the route by Applemore College students.

Threatened species win a voice in Canberra – but it’s too late for some

July 2, 2014 6.26am BST

Author: Stephen Garnett

Professor of Conservation and Sustainable Livelihoods, Charles Darwin University

Could Australia’s new threatened species commissioner be the break Tasmania’s endangered devils need?

Australia’s threatened animals and plants may have received a small win today — the announcement of Australia’s first threatened species commissioner by Environment Minister Greg Hunt in Melbourne.

The commissioner, Gregory Andrews, appointed from within the federal environment department, will coordinate conservation of “priority species”, including funding. While some conservation advocates were hoping for someone outside the department, Andrews will have the advantage of inside knowledge.

But for some species it is already too late. The commissioner was announced at the launch of the Action Plan for Australian Mammals 2012 by mammal experts John Woinarski, Andrew Burbidge, and Peter Harrison, which finds that nearly a third of Australia’s mammals have been lost or are on the path to extinction, largely due to introduced predators such as foxes and cats.

The current International Union for Conservation of Nature Red List records that 99 Australian animals are Critically Endangered — they have at least a 50% chance of extinction within 10 years. (You can read about some of them here)

The commissioner is an opportunity for the federal environment department to refocus on the detail of conservation, rather than the big picture. In the past the government has emphasised landscape conservation so exclusively that the Christmas Island Pipistrelle became extinct in 2009, right under the Commonwealth’s nose — the first mammal extinction in 50 years. By ignoring individual species, the government neglected the very values the general public associates with conservation.

But commissioner Andrews will have a big job in preventing further extinctions — particularly sourcing funding in such an arid financial climate.

Australia's biggest national park to be created in WA's Kimberley as mining companies relinquish tenement

By Andrew O'Connor

Updated 25 Mar 2015, 2:29am

A five million hectare slice of Western Australia's Kimberley region will become the country's largest national park after the State Government struck a deal forever banning mining in the iconic Mitchell Plateau.

After extensive negotiations, a 45-year state agreement that gave Rio Tinto rights to mine bauxite and Alcoa the right to refine aluminium on the Mitchell Plateau has been cancelled.

No further mining or exploration will be permitted in the 175,000 hectare area, which will be included in the new five million hectare Kimberley National Park which includes a network of land and marine parks.

Premier Colin Barnett said thanks to the agreement, the "extraordinary" landscape would be preserved, delivering a major conservation outcome.

"I genuinely believe that this is the most significant conservation achievement in Western Australian history," Mr Barnett said.

Legislation will be introduced into Parliament this week to cancel the state agreement.

Mr Barnett expected it would have bipartisan support.

The park will incorporate two million hectares of land in the Kimberley, taking in the current Prince Regent, Mitchell River and Lawley River national parks.

Hot dry weather causes Snarl Peak fire in Banff National Park to almost double in size

Snarl Peak fire almost doubles in size over the long weekend.

BANFF – Parks Canada says while a wildfire continues to burn about 80 kilometres north of the Banff townsite,crews have successfully conducted a burnout operation that should help to contain the blaze.

On Sunday, afternoon, Parks Canada fire crews worked to remove unburned fuels next to natural barriers to the fire. Officials say the blaze has grown in size from 400 hectares to about 700 since Friday.

Officials say fire activity at Snarl Peak has increased over the weekend due to high temperatures, low humidity and high winds. Smoke columns were visible from the Icefields Parkway and east toward the Sundre area Saturday and Sunday.

Parks officials suggest lightening sparked the fire on the northern slopes of Snarl Peak, roughly 80 kilometres north of the Banff townsite, on July 14.

They have now set up remote weather stations and cameras to monitor the weather and the fire activity.

Fire crews are now using “indirect fire management techniques” to continue to manage the fire. That includes strategic sprinkler lines placed in areas around the fire as well as natural barriers to contain the fire.

If the challenges these barriers at any time, management will use additional burnout operations to remove any additional fuel ahead of the fire,” says Dani McIntosh, Fire Information Officer with Banff National Park.

Parks Canada says it is working to contain the Snarl Peak wildfire burning in Banff National Park.

The Snarl Peak area has been designated as a “green zone” which means there are few “values” or nearby properties at risk. That means Parks Canada will try to allow the fire to burn as much as possible.

There’s a warden cabin, it’s called the Indian Head Warden Cabin, and an associated cultural site next to it, so we’re really watching closely to make sure that those areas are protected,” says McIntosh.

The park has closed the area from the lower Clearwater River Valley at the Roaring Creek/Martin Lake junction to the eastern park boundary near Indianhead Creek.

Feeding wildlife in national parks can earn you a $1,000 fine

Parks Canada says feeding of wildlife appears to be on the rise in Banff, Yoho and Kootenay National Parks.

As such, officials are asking visitors to use their smart phones to record license plate numbers and images of people feeding wildlife, and then report them to park wardens.

On Thursday, the organization took the unusual step of releasing a video and images of a visitor caught feeding a bear in Banff National Park last year. The visitor was later issued a $1,000 fine.

We are sharing the image and video that helped lead to these charges in order to educate people about why the feeding of wildlife is dangerous for both people and animals,” said Parks Canada in a release. “As well as to seek public support in the reporting of wildlife feeding incidents.”

If you see anyone feeding wildlife, you’re asked to report the incident to 1-888-WARDENS (927-3367) as soon as possible.

Parks in Peril: Can We Protect Utah's Desert Parks from Energy Development?

After 8 years of work by a movement of energy advocates, Arches and Canyonlands could soon gain unprecedented protections from oil and gas development. But we need your help.

The Park Avenue area of Arches National Park

The crown jewels of the National Park System are at a crossroads: Their wildlife, wild places, and historic and cultural integrity face challenges, right outside of their borders. Grand Teton, Yosemite, Biscayne, Arches, and Glacier are in danger of being forever changed by energy development, pollution, overuse, and other serious problems. However, with each threat comes an opportunity for the Obama Administration to take action. NPCA’s new Parks in Peril campaign will help inspire people to stand up for our national parks instead of standing by and letting them be irreversibly harmed.

TAKE ACTION

SPEAK UP FOR ARCHES AND CANYONLANDS TODAY!

The Bureau of Land Management is seeking public comment on its Draft Moab Master Leasing Plan for oil, gas, and potash development near Arches and Canyonlands. Tell the BLM to do more to protect the parks’ dark night skies, natural quiet, air, and water.

TAKE ACTION

Eight years is a long time, but that’s how long our community of national park defenders has been helping craft a plan to protect Utah’s Arches and Canyonlands National Parks from oil and gas leasing. Fortunately, the end is finally in sight. When the final comments are collected by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) in mid-November, we’ll be on the threshold of gaining unprecedented protections for two of our most beloved national parks.

It began in the waning days of the Bush Administration. Just before the Obama Administration was sworn in, the Utah office of the BLM rushed to auction a set of oil and gas leases on lands adjacent to Arches and Canyonlands National Parks. The local community was in an uproar and disrupted the sale, causing the government to cancel the lease sales.

The newly installed Obama Administration tried an innovative tactic: talking to people. As part of this new approach, the Utah BLM invited everyone who might be impacted by oil and gas leasing in Moab—recreationists, park visitors, local businesses, industry—into a process to figure out how leasing might, or might not, be able to proceed.

From Arches to Yellowstone, the crown jewels of our National Park System are at a crossroads. And it is up to each of us to determine which path they take.

Spruce Fire Received Significant Rain Overnight

Subscribe RSS Icon | What is RSS Date: September 15, 2015

Contact: Julena Campbell, (307)344-2015

The lightning-caused Spruce Fire, burning in the backcountry of Yellowstone National, received significant rain overnight on Monday. The fire had grown to an estimated 2,594 acres as of noon on Monday, before storms moved into the area, dropping approximately .5 inches by Tuesday morning. Weather forecasts call for continued damp weather throughout the next few days. Fire activity has greatly diminished, but the fire is still burning in some areas. Crews will continue to monitor the fire while it plays its natural role in the ecosystem. Smoke from the fire may continue to be visible throughout the park and in surrounding communities;however, no facilities, trails, or roads are threatened and there are no closures in place. To learn more about the role fire plays in the ecosystem, visit www.nps.gov/yell/learn/nature/fireconsequences.htm.

A much smaller fire, the 5L4 Fire on the Promontory Peninsula at the south end of Yellowstone Lake, was reported on August 24. It was last estimated to be 16 acres and is still burning, though it has not been very active in the last two weeks. Fire activity picked up slightly on Monday afternoon, as gusty winds ushered in the storms, but that was quickly dampened by the overnight rain. Fire crews are also managing this fire for its benefits to park resources. Backcountry campsites 5L3, 5L4, and 6A1 continue to be closed due to the 5L4 Fire.

The decision on how to manage each fire in the park is based on a number of factors, including current and predicted conditions, as well as potential values at risk. There have been two additional park fires that have been suppressed in the last five days: a human-caused fire in Mammoth Hot Springs on September 10 and a lightning-caused fire near the northwest boundary of the park on September 12.

The fire danger in Yellowstone National Park is currently "High." There are no fire restrictions in place, however, campfires are allowed only in designated grills in park campgrounds, some picnic areas, and specific backcountry campsites.
