Während in Europa strengere Gesetze und Umweltauflagen gelten, nutzen viele international tätige Konzerne den niedrigen Rechtsstandard in den armen Ländern - und machen Milliardengewinne.

Wissenschaft zum Schutz der Küstenökosysteme Indonesiens

Indonesien ist das größte Archipel der Welt und umfasst 17.500 Inseln. Mit 81.000 km hat es nach Kanada die zweitlängste Küstenlinie. Der Inselstaat ist weltweit eines der wichtigsten Zentren der Biodiversität, mit hochproduktiven Ökosystemen wie Korallenriffe, Mangroven und Seegraswiesen. Sie beherbergen einen enormen Artenreichtum, schützen die Küstenzonen vor Sturmfluten und Erosion und bilden die Lebensgrundlage für Millionen von Menschen.

USA: When it came to naming Florida's state tree, the spind­ly mangrove lost out to the stately sabal palm. Nor have developers and waterfront property owners, as evidenced by a Jupiter case, shown much love for the shore-hugging view-blocker whose wetlands often smell like rotten eggs.

Without mangroves, Florida shores would erode, exotic birds would die, the multibillion-dollar sport fishing industry would collapse, water would become more polluted and sea levels rising because of climate change would more easily flood the coast, according to scientists, conservationists, anglers and bird-watchers. ... palmbeachpost.com
