Sarcastic Fringeheads aren’t only famous for their strange names, but also their incredible display behaviors in which males show dominance by opening their very large mouths. Learn more in our Marine Life Encyclopedia: bit.ly/37kkqMU

Instead of hearing irrelevant fantasies describing an empty frontier, I’d rather listen to compelling stories of how people have lived with the land (and its sometimes dramatic changes) for so long.

Simultaneously occurring large #HeatWaves became larger (+45%), more frequent (x7), and more intense (+17%) since the 1980s, posing an increasing risk to society. Changes are due to #GlobalWarming and changing mid-latitude atmospheric patterns doi.org/10.1175/JCLI-D-21-02…

"The giant #sequoia is listed as an #endangered species with fewer than 80,000 trees remaining in the world. 2020's Castle Fire, alone, claimed 10,000 specimens — meaning that as many as 14,000 giant sequoias might have died as a result of #wildfires in less than two years."

Somewhere between 2200 and 3600 large giant sequoias were killed by two Southern Sierra fires this year (#KNPComplex and #WindyFire). That is on top of 7 - 10k trees killed in a single wildfire last year. In the last two years we've lost 15-20% of the world's giant sequoias. 1/4

Sequoia National Park says lightning-sparked wildfires in the past two years have killed a minimum of nearly 10,000 giant sequoia trees in California. The estimate accounts for 13% to 19% of the native sequoias that are the largest trees on Earth. apne.ws/0OHfC56

These losses make up an estimated 3-5% of the entire Sierra Nevada sequoia population over four feet in diameter. On top of the 10-14% of large sequoias lost in the 2020 Castle fire, these fire impacts represent a significant threat to large sequoia persistence.
