Australian Wildlife Conservancy welcomes 10-year Threatened Species Strategy

first_imgAustralian Wildlife Conservancy welcomes 10-year Threatened Species Strategy “Australian Wildlife Conservancy welcomes the federal government’s new 10-year Threatened Species Strategy. The government’s renewed commitment and investment in conservation is a positive step towards protecting Australia’s precious biodiversity,” says Tim Allard, Chief Executive Officer at the Australian Wildlife Conservancy (AWC). The Morrison Government has released a ten-year blueprint for protecting Australia’s biodiversity, establishing a national prioritisation framework for threatened species that targets a broader range of species, focusses on key native habitat, and drives the development of new technologies.The Threatened Species Strategy 2021-2031 draws on the lessons of the 2019-20 Bushfires to identify and adapt to sudden threats from an increase in natural disasters, calls for a more coordinated approach to culling feral pest animals and weeds that are pushing species to extinction and plans for the deployment of new monitoring technologies including drones and environmental DNA.Mr Allard says the trajectory for threatened species is on a rapid decline and the government needs to ensure the forthcoming 5-year Action Plans outline clear and committed actions on the ground.“Goals and commitments to protecting and recovering Australia’s 1,800 threatened species need to be defined up front and actioned accordingly.” /Public Release.

Media ownership in Australia is one of the most concentrated in the world (Learn more). Since the trend of consolidation is and has historically been upward, fewer and fewer individuals or organizations control increasing shares of the mass media in our country. According to independent assessment, about 98% of the media sector is held by three conglomerates. This tendency is not only totally unacceptable, but also to a degree frightening).

Frost & Sullivan Estimates Subsea Equipment Revenues at $35.84 Bln in 2018

first_imgEscalating energy requirements and declining reserves in existing wells are lending momentum to subsea exploration, fuelling the adoption of subsea equipment globally. As attractive returns and higher recovery rates position subsea exploration to challenge the near-shore and onshore industry, demand for subsea equipment will continue to grow.New analysis from Frost & Sullivan, Analysis of the Global Subsea Equipment Market, finds that the market earned revenues of $23.13 billion in 2013 and estimates this to reach $35.84 billion in 2018. The golden triangle, Brazil, West Africa and the Gulf of Mexico, will remain high-potential regions for market expansion during the forecast period. “Technological advancements that have led to higher production and safer, cleaner processes encourage energy companies to move further offshore, thus widening the scope of the global subsea equipment market,” said Frost & Sullivan Energy and Environmental Industry Analyst Rajalingam Chinnasamy. “As the subsea factory of the future is expected to include a complete production system on the seafloor, the prospect for equipment vendors is secure.”While development in the deep-water platform is strong, the industry is unable to maintain similar growth in terms of resource availability. The shortage of skilled labor to execute projects and crew subsea vessels and equipment will slow uptake.In addition, high costs associated with deployment of a safe subsea project will curb equipment sales in the short and medium terms. Manufactures are also reluctant to invest in extensive R&D, which is crucial to produce solutions for use in hostile deep water environments.“Mergers, acquisitions and partnerships will help subsea equipment suppliers leverage expertise across the board and penetrate the market successfully,” observed Chinnasamy. “Major participants must especially partner with or acquire hardware suppliers and software providers to widen their product and service portfolios.”As deep water drilling and production increases, identifying niche areas will help vendors sustain profits and carve a space for themselves in the global subsea equipment market.Press Release, September 30, 2014last_img read more
