Refubees

“The researchers suggested that one potential way to mitigate the bees’ reduced range would be to experiment with relocating bumblebee populations northwards, as has been done before with butterflies and plants.” (http://www.theguardian.com/environment/2015/jul/09/bumblebee-habitat-shrinking-europe-north-america-climate-change-study)

Travellers heading north will be offered the chance to chaperone a small swarm.

Shell Shock

“The Desert Sunlight Solar Farm, located in Riverside County about 170 miles (273 km) east of downtown Los Angeles, was operating at full capacity and providing 550 megawatts of electricity to the grid. … To minimize environmental impact, the Bureau of Land Management was finding ‘suitable habitat’ for desert tortoise and other wildlife impacted by the farm’s construction.” (http://uk.reuters.com/article/2015/02/10/us-usa-california-solar-idUKKBN0LE2UF20150210)

i.e. move along or we’ll attach solar panels to your shell.

Glow-job

“Every year the night sky is a little less dark and lights shining on glow-worm breeding areas, ponds, rivers and other wildlife habitats can destroy their natural ecology. ” (http://www.rspb.org.uk/media/releases/359538-nocturnal-nature-in-the-balance)

Nobody likes bright lights shining on their breeding areas.

Forestry

The proposed site of a large-scale wind farm “is completely encircled by globally important peatland habitats, protected under European and Scots law. The area proposed for development would have been given similar protection were it not for inappropriate planting with conifers in the 1980s.” (http://www.rspb.org.uk/media/releases/353694-rspb-scotland-set-to-object-to-a-damaging-wind-farm-proposal-threatening-the-flow-country)

Some wag arranged the trees in blatantly pornographic poses and from a nearby hill their placement clearly spells ‘arse’.
