12:31 pm
we are, you know, making sure that this can be done under, you know, the right ways of shandey a law in terms of separating the students. sorry, led coalition in yemen, says that it's killed at least 160 who the fights. as in mary province. dawson's of air strikes, were launched in support of government forces to push back the rebels. a ceremony is taken place in paris to mock 60 years since the massacre of algerian protest. as in a police crackdown, the mayor of paris and hidalgo, was among those attending the event on saturday. emanuel macro became the 1st french president to attend such commemoration, but he stopped short of issuing a formal apology. hundreds of fishermen and shall anchor are protesting against what they say is poaching from neighboring india. they want that government to enforce a 2017 law that prevents indian fishermen from encroaching into shore length of waters. at least 11 people had been killed in landslides and flooding in india's careless state. over a dozen people including 5 children,
12:32 pm

12:33 pm
will juicer with ever you? oh, a bmw, to cope with our growing population, we have tripled our exploitation of natural resources in just 40 years. as a result of the vast expansion of mining, industrial scale, farming, fishing, and other human activities, natural ecosystems have lost nearly half the area and 1000000 plant and animal species, a facing extinction. without the ecological networks which regulate our planets
12:34 pm
from cleaning air and water to providing food, we simply cannot survive. but there is still time we meet the pioneers striving to protect 2 of our most valuable remaining ecosystems. roberta, sweden, where an inventive clothing company is using groundbreaking technology to fight deforestation, and i'm a man to borrow in tacky where one man is fighting to protect a wetlands haven for migrating buds. ah, the fashion industry worth $1.00 trillion dollars every year, tedford manufacturers made millions of garland white only be worn once or twice before in line until the so called fast fashion is incredibly resource intensive. and perhaps surprisingly,
12:35 pm
one of the key drivers of biodiversity laws and deforestation. i'm in sweden where one company is working on a green solution to this global problem. but 1st, i want to understand the impact fast fashion. so just 20 kilometers, i'd say star corner is the primeval of for us to forest that we're on our way there to meet the call. right. she's a conservationist and she's on a mission to pick ancient forests around the world. oh it's great to see if i so much but come to stock on to do a story about fashion, what i have written for it. so there's a $150000000.00 trees that disappear every year into the clothing that we all wear . it slated to double within the next decade. i have never heard of that connection between, between fashion and, and for street. yeah, well, it's not an intuitive like that something that soft and silky next skin. actually
12:36 pm
it starts off as a tree. many of these trees come from endangered forests, thousands of years old, known as primary forests around the world, 50 percent, hold ready be lost due to human impacts such as logging. nicole runs canopy, an organization dedicated to protecting those that remain complete breakdown of the ecological functioning of that area is a massive release of carbon in the atmosphere. disrupts species have attacks even though trees can grow back insulin in danger. far, sir, or place simple. after the forest to clear the wood is poked and processed into fabrics called re on and viscous. but it's shockingly wasteful. as much as 70 percent of the harvested wood is dumped or incinerated, just 30 percent in so kinda gone. so we're kind of people works with businesses
12:37 pm
that source from primary forests to find the green alternatives. one of their main focus points is the global fashion industry. what's your strategy? are you going to make a difference in this? my experience is that it's some of these big global brands. they have the ability to actually engage their suppliers, to stop them from logging in ancient and endangered forest ecosystems. and if we can redirect it to be more sustainable now, using recycled fabrics rather than ending up in landfill and for the current capacity that's already in production, let's just make sure it's not coming from really important ancient endangered parsed regents. i like that. so you're talking about a kind of a 2 prong approach. one is the kind of conservation and stopping that deforestation the 1st place. and the 2nd one is this recycling element. so reusing what's already been produced. so that's a big priority for canopy is to really help kick start commercial scale production on face next generation solutions. mike recycle clothing being used. i've got
12:38 pm
a confession to make that figure thermal aha, because i was terrified. we're going to freeze and i looked at the label and the way here is that there is 3 per cent this good. there we go. i wouldn't feel bad. i as you, i was surprised when i 1st discovered the link between ancient and endangered far some viscous blue can appear helping to transform the fashion industry. one of their partners is a recycling company in the town of christian. hm. cold renew. so they've invented a pioneering technology, the promises to transform textile manufacturing. it came of age in 2014. when a catwalk model dawned, a yellow dress made from 100 percent chemically recycled fabrics. the 1st time c e o mathias johnson is offered to show me how it all works. so as right at the beginning, yes, this is a post consumer. this is,
12:39 pm
this is jean blue jeans. that people have a wear and tear about this both all the worse next for this it goes into our frederick and that it, but it broke that in a dry estate where we separate and a whole and then it goes in to what stage we did a little bit is laurie, that we would pick out some of the color we bleach it a bit, and then we're dry it. what would be happening for this cell if you guys weren't using your, your process, most of it would be a landfill or a bar. we're good from evil or from the guys. i think if we don't read in the machine, i don't know that the breakdown every stage of the process has been carefully considered. the dies and chemicals are all recyclable and the water is reuse to after the joint process, the fabric is pressed and packed into paper like sheets. surprising, pregnancy, video, and product. this is a fall plate and there's
12:40 pm
a lot of federal loads and really good stuff for making the code fiber. this is the raw material from which the fiscal fabric is plainly made. the rest so you can print it like a normal fiber. then you've got to be woven into any, are voted or we go here. this is a famous yellow dress. this is the world's 1st chemically recycled piece of garment . wow. oh, this made from blue jeans. no, that's wrong. same stuff. it doesn't look like a worthy, environmentally friendly garmin. this looks like any other carmen you would see in the high street. absolutely. and that's why we're not necessarily call this recycling. we call it up cycling, but i mean it, but what is seen here and when you sell are hoping to open another suite plants within the next 5 years, manufacturers are taking
12:41 pm
a step towards reducing that pressure on primary forest for all list to make a real difference in these to be demand and that demand stores here on the high street, were you aware that there is a connection between the fashion industry and deforestation actually do nothing to both. you know what viscous is? yeah. it's a synthetic material, right? organic material, do you know where it comes from? no idea. are you aware of this connection between the fashion industry and d 4 station? no, i had no idea. judging by these shoppers, this some way to go before awareness will drive demand. but nicole's organization can be a working to bring suppliers like when you so together with brands, you can stock their products and big fashion brands. they are driving a lot the, the problems that we're seeing how to address. that sure seems to be a bit of a disconnect. the clothing touches all of our lives on a daily basis. it produces
12:42 pm
a 100000000000 gallons every year. it hasn't been footprint. american top not have their big footprint when you're that big. and it's exactly because of that reason that we need them to be part of the solution. so it's fun to be here, i think on, on high street and in between 2 of canopies brand partners, compile, and h m, who are part of the 170 class brands that we're working with in the fashion sector to transform the discuss around supply chain so you said you'd be working with a to them. yeah, we see some of the stuff you've been working on. yeah, absolutely. let's go inside and have a look. canopy success is growing all the time. nicole's hope is soon, every store will store recycle clothing. so this is a rack of clothing that has a variety of different environmental quality. this product here is really interesting, as far as he can tell, just a pair of denim jeans. it's got 20 percent recycled cotton renew. so we saw them
12:43 pm
producing a kind of a feedstock, which is 100 percent recycle court. and you think we're going to get to that point . i do. and i think, you know, in the short term this is what's available today. and renew cell is hopefully next season clothing so that this moves from having 20 percent recycled cotton to 100 percent. recycle h t. m. recently partnered with renew. so to support and continuing research, this is part of the clothing joint place to use 100 percent sustainably source clothing by 2030, which would be priced. the same cost is non sustainable items. and in store customers are encouraged to drop off unwanted garments to be recycled by companies like when you sell. so i'm quite curious to see if there's anything in here. if that's the look at that. they can be any quotes they can be, any brands, clothing we have been working with big global retailers and designers on ensuring
12:44 pm
that this recycling program actually continues to increase so that it gets fed back into the calling supply chain and ultimately becomes next season's fashion. so literally kind of closing the loop on it, that's where we want to get that. that's where we want to get to me. it's got the link between the fashion industry and deforestation. shockey, i think with organizations like canopy and when you sell raising awareness, there is hope in the future. it must have changed. but i think in the public with the great inflammation, they'll be able to demand more from the retailers. and then we might see a precious boyd not being the victims of ecosystems are just like the systems of the body as long as they are looked after and managed well, then the body is in good shape. and if they're mismanaged and not care for the body,
12:45 pm
could potentially die. ecosystem collapse is a can to organ failure in our own bodies. if enough, of the organs that make up the terrestrial body are removed or are made sick, the body dies. the, again, the earth is no different. each of us has a role to play. and fixing this problem. we could have a world that is beautiful and vital, and alive, or one that is quite bleak and quite brutal. it's directly related to what me choose to do whether or not we actually choose to do the work necessary to mend and repair and rehabilitate our ecosystems or to participate
12:46 pm
in their deaf wetlands. some of the richest habitats on the planet, in this remote corner of ne and tacky, is one which is proving to be an ecological gen. conservationists of any recently realize its vital importance. not only for local bands, but also for those migrating from all over the world. and yet the iris, whither wetlands is under threats. i've come here to meet a man who's hoping to save this remarkable parts of the world. john shaquille is a world renowned own authentic se, let's say to come to a professor in the united states every year, chandra, time to homeland attacking and comes to this area part of the country. what draws him here is a 5 kilometer squared pocket of land. the iris river wetlands, john came across it in 2005 and was looking just playing with google earth. and i
12:47 pm
thought this looks like a globally important oasis and critical spot for migration breeding and wintering, birds. and it's compet different coming here in person. and i thought this is it, this is a place where i wanna do long term research to really understand what birds use this area. this rare, wet land, situated in the dry sub desert region is created when the iris river floods. it's ideally located for migrating birds out of 35 global hot spots. we're at the intersection of not one, but 23 of the eight's worlds global bird migration flyers that intersect right where we are in north eastern turkey. it is one of the most special wetlands on the platter. bass, he discovered a treasure child. how did he fail? it was so exciting and it was so beautiful. i mean, i really did not expect. after 15 years we would have recorded almost 300 bird
12:48 pm
species as 2 thirds of the antar, even far off the whole country, recorded over centuries. i mean, in this one spot of the 290 bad species or eva phone. i documented 1021 a globally threatened or near threatened including the caption, voucher and the car here. but further danger is looming. the government wants to dam this and tar valley. as for us, that village over there, flood this whole place, all this would be under 45 meters of water. and every season i come here to seeing it. still there is like a relief because i am always afraid ill all be gone. i have to come here and see it for myself. early the next morning, john takes me to the birds, bringing station down in the wetlands. currently fighting in the call to the
12:49 pm
government decision to build the whole day together proved the wetlands which by t. and that by ensure its protection, we see everything here from minus 10 to plus 40 centigrade in the shade can get very cold here, or very want to 10 degrees today. exactly. yeah. he'll know something. oh yeah, we do in this turkey, inside the team already hard at work, cutting me thing too. and if there's any way, can i touch him? i got with caught amongst the 600 meters, the burden that surround the station every hour from sunrise to sunset during spring and migration fees and the net to check to see if anybody to flown into them . they've gone to check the wrap and there's nothing there. so we go back. that's my great to find condition favorable for living and breathing. it's early in the
12:50 pm
season here. so bad numbers, the low, but the, the whole specimens. so we got a birds. okay. and the net, what's it that will go to the collector? yeah, they, his dinner slide into a pocket and then get entangled. some of the pass code here haflin pertains nonstop and my great for hundreds or even thousands of kilometer initially or to be able to survive. germany is one thing. they owe me fat as their fuel right before migration . some birds will double their body mass and that's why please like us are so critical because they did these stop over locations to keep eating and to keep replenishing their fuel reserves. now that i'm down in the valley, i can get a sense of why they don't care because it's warmer than just a bit higher up. there's water everywhere, bits of foliage coming out. and the thing that you can't see on camera is that there's actually
12:51 pm
a lot insect say it says the huge amounts of food to be got here by migrating about one and 8 bad species, a facing global extinction due to perils including habitat loss and pollution. so it's only increases the importance of an oasis like this. these days, if you're studying by diversity, it's almost impossible not to become an activist because you know you are study things that are being destroyed every moment you study them one roman remy. this is a spanish ornithologist. one of 400 volunteers from 33 countries who have come to work here since chance, set up the station in 2005. now we've got the birds from them is that it will go to the station within them. think so. miss roommates on the, on the back to the golf is bed was born definitely last year. and this is the 1st spring negation for this bird that away. since i even when it's just a one year old, it know is instinctively where it has to go. as incredible will natural signs
12:52 pm
including changing day lengths, trigger the birds hormone switch, switch on the urge to travel unfailing. all the information gathered here if then to a central database at chance university in utah laden looks very awkward on m live tournaments. she lives that make them cookies. mother parked in chums order. so in summer i took the up, but of the 6 her total on the muscle, the hydro roller. and i was a watching live talk. yeah. and under the tricky shit, the small good southcourt free on the for these were some very condition on the other one by blowing on the birds chest. one can tell its fat levels if the skin is pink, they are low. and if yellow, the bird is plump enough to travel on extent on mount. i just so slights and to think that this bird has come from little thousands of kilometers from, from, from the start of its journey in africa. said it's it just exploring because it's
12:53 pm
so tiny on the often what the leg over for every individual with a couple of furthers i've got to the law. oh you can feel its heart beating with tiny little heart. one for the data has been gathered, the birds can be released to go. we don't want to go over 14 years. the team have ringed around a $180000.00 birds. when they are caught us, where research is, can contact the station here, and their migration can be tracked. i feel like i've learned so much about why this place is so important as a refueling station for, for those birds which are travelling across the world on their journeys. and being here with the team. witnessing their passion and their commitment to the cause has really brought home to me just how important this place is. but
12:54 pm
16 kilometers up the road is a reminder that despite its important the fate of the irish through the wetlands, it's far from kill. this is why i wanted to bring you here, just to see what happens when you build a dam on the, our us river. could birds not live here? i scan already. and there is basically nothing. i mean, there's a couple things on the arid cliff, but where are the wet lambert's? nothing on the shoreline? no waiters on the mud flaps about a decade after this is built, there is no revision station, hardly anything has come back. and remember at our us, it's the flood plain of the river that's creating all those wetlands. and because here by design, there will not be any flooding. you're not going to have that rich soil and all the vegetation that grows on the whole earth valley will look like this. it logically
12:55 pm
dead, as the way you go around the world is that fine balance between development and nature. and of course, progress has to be made what needed a solutions that benefit both population and the natural world. child has some reason to feel hopeful and its efforts to win protective status for the iris river wetlands in 2009 with data provided by him and his team. lake, future, 70 come to the north of iris with designated around wetland giving it into national recognition as being its global important. i can see 100100 sturdy. yeah. can i buy the kick it out? see the crane. yeah. and there's some ducks in there. these critical lakes are dwindling and going out one by one. so could you because one of the last and most important lakes in the entire northeast in turkey,
12:56 pm
which ram saw status doesn't mean the because driving direct impacts such as draining it for irrigation and hunting dog, but indirect threats remain. grounds water extraction 3 need by wells is reducing the lake water level and animals still grades the read bed. in september 2018. the lake dry dock. completely religious black, dry mud during the season. when it is the most important for birds, there was no water and no birds. you can say it's a ramps on site and declare victory and walk away. i mean, consolation is a never ending battle, like as long as that places there, you have to make sure it stays there. john is working on a number of fronts and save the lake and had just signed an agreement to protect it with the provincial governor. meanwhile, his struggle to prevent the down from being built on the irish river wetlands continued just coming here regularly. a year after year. reminds me the importance
12:57 pm
of the work we're doing. and even if i lose, i'll have it on my conscience. i'll know, i have done my best and i didn't just turn my back and gave up. it is estimated this around the world wetlands disappeared in the past century. future lake and the irish river wet have chance champions and global development continues to pay more wetlands in other parts. going to need a local hero to fight that corner across the globe ecosystems, affording victims to human exploitation. one possible way of ensuring that protection is to enshrine the right to defend themselves in law. and the u. s. in the 1970 illegal scholar called christopher stone, proposed that nature should be seen as a living entity with the same legal rights of people. it works through human
