threat consider this six thousand plant species can be cultivated for food but only nine account for two thirds of total crop production similarly the world's livestock production is based on just forty species and only a handful provides the vast majority of milk meat and eggs and these sources are disappearing from insects to see grass crustaceans and funky close to a quarter of nearly four thousand wild food species are in decline or there are many causes for this the most significant being pollution over harvesting and climate change the hardest hit region to latin america asia and africa one in nine people already don't have enough food and the world's population is expected to reach nine point eight billion by two thousand and fifty so how do we avoid mass starvation the answer is change what you eat the u.n. says we must diversify our food sources eating species that are not widely consumed

1:17 am
retrieve. the plan was after touchdown it would extend a pipe and choose a pinball like bullet into the space rock to collect samples just so that is sure jackson made the first touchdown on the asteroid by higher bruce or two after they confirm the data they found the steps to collect the sample from the asteroid was done successfully where we don't yet know the details until it returns i hope the asteroid sample will lead to providing a clue to the evolution of the solar system. high abuse or to also deployed tiny rovers and a european built lander to survey a surface it was a challenge because asteroid was not what they expected it was covered in boulders the spacecraft had a landing zone of just six meters on the nearly kilometer wide rock. i'm crazy about hope was there too because he's so very ambitious mission like japanese like to do and it has many firsts so it's a made the first detail that you made of

a potentially carbon rich asteroid it made the first deployment of manure over us and french german lander on the surface of such a small body and he's going to be the first sampling on an asteroid. there are thought to be billions of asteroids revolving around the sun rocks left over after our solar system was formed more than four billion years ago only once before has a spacecraft landed on one of them is carbon rich the type of asteroid that could unlock mysteries around the origins of our solar system and life on earth but first . must get back to earth with its samples intact shallop ballasts out his era. just a quick look at the top stories this hour at least two venezuelans have been killed

1:22 am
relationship between humans and animals has always been one with elements of conflicts but as the number of people on the planet continues to grow it's becoming increasingly strained and imbalanced with the world's human population approaching an extraordinary eight billion sprawling settlement some activities are encroaching on animal habitats more than ever scientists estimate humans are driving species extinction at around one thousand times the natural rate largely due to have a tough loss and climate change we urgently need to find better ways to live together on a shadow planet i'm juliet peace and i'm here in richmond australia to see how team of scientists and volunteers to help in quotes to survive in jungle and i'm russell reared in bangladesh for the locals are learning to co-exist with their car your neighborhood. and of was one time to have
1:23 am
a one million qualities in the way the relentless pace of human expansion the numbers and drop by almost eighty percent is ninety ninety one of the human population is still growing and announced that way and that number is only said to growing putting for the precious on surrounding life without immediate intervention extinction. but a group of local residents and experts now trying to reverse this trend. the last land that hugs a stray east coast is one of the most desirable places for human settlement but it's also a prime koala habitat as a result increasing numbers of these must a been forced to live within the city. john hannah is a wildlife fit and founding member of the quality research network. you brought me terri this an area that i would have thought could possibly have qualis been so busy why why this area this park really illustrates like this in
1:24 am
a really good quiet hell the mistress of having wallace sufficing like get killed on the roads because often like cross annoyed when that difficult to say and draw this just don't see them so they'll often get you on this writing trick destroyed is really a hot spot for all of this in the area certainly when they get on the royal lawns with a busy road want to try and try to get rid of us are exposed to significant injury and this obviously and so there's really a whole range of threats they're exposed to in this sort of in more. than the local experts like john a committed to protecting the koala before it's too late. but with a population scattered throughout the city the first step to saving them is monitoring them. john and his team have been intensely studying a population in the most in bay region agrees that. today they're tracking by radio signal and prayed. tag that name sonny.
1:25 am
so the guys are heading up the chain now a bit of a client to catch capture koala so they can then check it out for the health check later on. through. oh my god. oh let me have the. strength to yank. and i felt my heart.
1:26 am
and head is to finish the blood just like this just a lot but on top of you had. made it over if you were not i'm quite well sunny's are in a loss of blood so this pretty. now sunny will head off to the vet where he will be screened for diseases. koalas a car and he listed as under threat if nothing is done they could be extinct in less than fifty is the seriousness of the situation isn't lost on some local residents who are trying to tackle habitat ration. care and nice to me really to what do you guys doing here today i was just making sure this little ass dyke had a mockery and so we're now into warsaw didn't qualify for the trees here being just
1:27 am
guests there are two hundred spaces of co-op if you can it's in queens and good quality it's only twenty two so we have to be very specific about what we plan and why how important is this to the incredibly important because this area will never be cleared for any sort of development so we're surrounded even though you can't see it with high density or been development so if we can increase the carrying capacity of the site for a while as it will encourage them to move into here we just might try for them to not be just one. upwards of five hundred lives per day moving from tree to tree said i browse bicycling all day because eucalypts a fairly new pool and she was. all right so how many more trees are cut to do half yes and of three or four i would say. planting trees provides one solution for protecting the koala but as urbanization continues roads and railway lines will inevitably expand putting these animals in harm's way. currently up to three
1:28 am
hundred killed by vehicles here. but i'm meeting up with that john again he wants me to see an intervention which is making a difference and around my line. is essential awarded trying to cope but but there are a few additions there's a post on royal to help the water launch get off the ground how do they know it's only guests initially they don't know. the familiar with the habitat as it was someone we put these impacts in and trying to landscape they have to learn to use it but the essential feature is really all that we would put a koala prevents along the road corrido and that ensures that they don't go onto the road corridor and get killed and if they do work there while along the fence ultimately dolly end up finding one of more of these culverts and so with a bit of exploration a lot from guys trying to get an idea of how effective they are john in the tame
1:29 am
and push up motion sensitive camera that's in these. of wardlaw fusing the codes including that on. so he's a koala going into a group of tollbooths who explored a culvert but didn't go through it and then we've got a group of kangaroos using a possum another koala rather different. and then. it's one of the back of all those. helping koalas navigate the urban jungle is essential to boosting their numbers but the most significant factor in ensuring their survival is disease prevention. back at the clinic with sonny the caption is ready for his check outs. vet amy robbins is about to give sonny a sedative this is just settling in so he can get his injection here to go into
1:30 am
a ball sense of security thinking something's about to happen. and. you know what a good boy what a brave little boy. get in the car making sure he's got good. time which is a sense of how good glad pressure is. to look at the bladder not. a big important thing. so you cause a psystar test so that causes inflammation of the bladder wall i guess clip media has reached epidemic proportions amongst koalas in australia with a huff the population infected if left untreated it can cause infertility blindness and average generally his blood as compared. sunny is in the clear tell me about the significance of you know when you're
1:31 am
testing media the most my projects diseases being charlotte if you can control that one factor then you can actually turn around to call the population. side by going in there and turn the treatment in the vaccination against company out actually coming in around and on the. grass now. you know it's phenomenal would never have come to a big significant project in the hours before so three valuable scientifically and i'm going to go in my mouth and i'm going to he's waking up yet as he's making out with matt. on camera. before letting the koala recuperate i mean fits another tried to call them. it's now time for sonny to be released at john studies side that had some amazing
1:32 am
business. the fact that yes so we can show you might be individuals healthy but the population is on a growth trajectory now so it was on quite a state. downward decline towards extinction and so now we have we're getting around to twenty percent right around him which is just downingtown around seven may very gratifying. to. get that right. the global population continues to grow cities the sprawling further more land is
1:33 am
needed to grow food more infrastructure is being built through fragile ecosystems. take roads rampant road building over the last century has divided the earth into six hundred thousand fragments over half of these are less than one square kilometer too small to support significant wildlife populations with twenty five million kilometers of new road expected by twenty fifteen the struggle for animals to survive in the face of development will only get harder resolving these kinds of conservation complexes far from some of the solutions that work best around the world are the one where local people have ownership of the process of finding the solution people need to be able to value the species that they are close to and by value i mean perhaps culturally or spiritually they want to have a species around it require in.
