The Plan for the at ChillerSpace, Part 1

I want this garden to be a refuge for species, by reintroducing more domestic plants that are endangered and/or that are food sources for endangered animals.

I'll start with that are nectar sources for pollinators, especially and .

I found a list of butterflies that are highly endangered and protected with priority in (it's in German, but there is a list of Latin names):

Next I'll research which domestic plants these species like the most as nectar sources and what their caterpillars eat.

I suspect the best way to get more of the plants I want is to stop watering an mowing (parts of) the lawn.

The Chocolate Albatross (Appias lyncida) has made its seasonal appearance in Singapore, and here are my shots of. Apparently, this year it is pretty abundant compared to previous years. Taken at Upper Seletar Reservoir Park on 16 May 2021.

The Chocolate Albatross is abundant in nearby peninsula Malaysia, but only appears seasonally (and rarely) in Singapore.

A Great Helen (Papilio iswara) spotted behind the Wallace Education Centre at Dairy Farm Nature Park, Singapore, on 2 May 2021. Might have taken more photos of it, but a male Common Mormon came along and chased it away from the area. :-)

The Great Helen is a large butterfly, and is moderately rare locally.

An Ornate Coraltail (Ceriagrion cerinorubellum) I saw perched on an unfolding fern frond. I thought it would make for an interesting photo op. 🙂 Spotted at the Rail Corridor, next to Bukit Timah Nature Reserve, Singapore, on 3 May 2021.

The Ornate Coraltail is a common, small, damselfly.

Could everybody please post something about #ClimateJustice using the hashtag?

At for weeks the same hashtags are trending and I suspect it's an error, but the only way to know for sure, is to see if we can get another hashtag to trend.


And to make sure this post is actually about climate justice too:

If we'd have to pay for all damages we inflict on #MAPA we'd reduce our CO2 emissions super quickly. And if we'd consider imports in our emissions we'd pay billions to countries like China, India and Vietnam to make sure they produce CO2 neutral.

The #GreatGreenWall Initiative has evolved from its initial focus on tree planting towards a comprehensive rural development initiative aiming to transform the lives of Sahelian populations by creating a mosaic of green and productive landscapes across 11 countries.

Progress has been achieved into the second decade of the initiative, with almost 18 million hectares of degraded lands restored and 350.000 jobs created.

However, a recent Landmark Report of the implementation status of the GGW highlighted several challenges in achieving the GGW ambitions, including:

- a lack of consideration in national environmental priorities

- weak organizational structures and processes for the implementation

- lack of mainstreaming of environmental change and action into the respective sector strategies, policies, and action plans,

- insufficient coordination, exchange and flow of information at the regional and national levels.
