Indonesia enlists plantation companies to ensure haze-free Asian Games "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

KIRAM, Indonesia The well-being of tens of thousands of athletes and spectators at Asias biggest sporting event later this year will depend on an unusual pair: palm oil and pulpwood companies. These industries dominate the landscape around the city of Palembang in South Sumatra province in Indonesia, which is co-hosting, along with Jakarta, the Asian Games this August. The event is the biggest on the Asian sporting calendar, with some 15,000 athletes from 45 countries expected to take part, drawing hundreds of thousands of visitors from across the continent. But organizers are wary of the danger of toxic haze from the burning of brush and peatlands, a phenomenon that flares up across palm oil and pulpwood concessions throughout Sumatra and Indonesian Borneo annually. The dry season this year, which is when the fires peak, is expected to take hold from June through September, coinciding with the Asian Games. South Sumatra is home to many pulpwood and oil palm concessions, with Indonesian paper behemoth Asia Pulp and Paper (APP) having a particularly large presence there. The province was the hardest hit by the particularly severe fires of 2015, when 3,591 square kilometers (1,386 square miles) of land was razed an area greater than the U.S. state of Rhode Island. The haze that year was exacerbated by the burning of degraded peatland that had been drained to make way for pulpwood and oil palm plantations and rendered highly combustible. The combination of drained peat forests and a dry climate, effectively

Longest recorded whale shark migration eclipses 20,000 kilometers "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

A team of scientists has tracked a whale shark (Rhincodon typus) across more than 20,000 kilometers (over 12,000 miles) of ocean, the longest migration ever recorded for the species. Whale sharks are filter feeders, eating plankton, fish eggs, krill, crab larvae as well as small squid and fish that enter their large mouths. They cannot digest plastic garbage. Image by Kevan Mantell/Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute. In 2011, the researchers attached a transmitting tag to a shark they named Anne in the Pacific Ocean near Panamas Coiba Island. Over the next 841 days, Annes transmitter would ping the ARGOS satellite whenever she swam near the surface. Those data points allowed the team to follow her movements south to the Galapagos Islands and clear across the Pacific to the Marianas Trench south of Japan and east of the Philippines a distance of 20,142 kilometers (12,516 miles). They reported their findings in the journal Marine Biodiversity Records in April. The discovery solidifies the whale sharks place among the oceans most widely traveled creatures, alongside leatherback sea turtles, gray whales and Arctic terns. Another whale shark tagged in 1995 held the previous record for the species with a 13,000-kilometer (8,100-mile) swim in 37 months. But beyond knowing that theyre capable of swimming vast distances females can cover 67 kilometers (42 miles) in a single day theres still a lot to learn about whale sharks. When I first began working on them, their taxonomy was debated, and it still wasnt clear how
