Eläinten globaalin massakuolemaepisodin tapahtumalistauksia Mass Animal Deaths Map -karttaesityksestä - Osa 1

Tästä lähtien teen tilannekartoituslistauksia tästä Google Maps -esityksestä; Mass Animal Deaths Map, jossa havainnollistetaan viime aikojen globaalia eläinten massakuolemaepisodia. Tässä ovat aiheeseen liittyneet hiljattaiset kirjoitukseni: Alustava kooste tutkimiseen viime päivien eläinten globaalissa massakuolemaepisodissa (Päivitys!) ja Pohdintaa viime aikojen eläinten massakuolemaepisodin syistä.

Tuo karttaesitys on kehitetty jaottelemaan kuolematapauksia kolmen asteikolla: Vihreä = Pieni määrä kuolemia, Keltainen = Kohtalaisesta suureen määrään kuolemia ja Punainen = Hälyyttävän suuri määrä kuolemia. Kartan yksittäinen merkki kuvaa raportoitua yksittäistä kuolematapausta ja kohdistaa sen kartalle ko. havainto- / tapahtumapaikalle. Lisäksi tämän vuoden kuolematapaukset on merkitty ko. merkin sisällä olevalla mustalla pisteellä. Otan tästä aineistosta esille keltaiset ja punaiset raportoinnit ja listaan niitä tämän kuun alusta alkaen nyt kuun puolivälissä ja siitä lähtien aina puolen kuun välein kuiden puoliväleissä ja lopuissa lainaten ko. esityksessä olevat tekstiraportit ko. englanninkielisenä listauksena. Jatkan tätä käytäntöä toistaiseksi niin pitkään kuin on tarve... -->
