Kruger rhinos' final chance

Kruger rhinos' final chance

Posted Sat, 20 Sep 2014 08:53:11 GMT by Paul Robinson

With 2014 rhinos killed for their horns since January, the South African rhino is on its way out. We have to use emergency measures to stop the poaching, while Vietnam and other importing countries are responsible for preventing all their illegal wildlife trading. So far, little has been done-only one horn shipment has been stopped recently.

Sturgeon survives, but not for long, it seems

The fate of sturgeons around the globe is under discussion Endangered all, they represent an important, as well as a commercial, link to our past. If we allow such large species to simply disappear, then there is no hope for any smaller animals and plants, as we plod towards a sterile and deficient landscape for all humans who appreciate life the way it is.

An Amazonian nightmare of deforestation

An Amazonian nightmare of deforestation

Posted Thu, 11 Sep 2014 09:33:00 GMT by Dave Armstrong

The Indonesian forest, especially on 'easier' islands is disappearing fast and there seems little we can do to stop the Amazon once again disappearing as fast as it ever did, under the chainsaws and giant equipment of loggers. Murder is being used as a weapon, activists are threatened and armed men rule. We can’t rely on tribal peoples to stop potentially dangerous people from robbing them of their inheritance, but we can take joint responsibility by stopping any trade in agricultural products. Let’s plough all our effort into prevention. The need is to stop these greedy people rather than compensate for their destruction.

Whales are wailing (in Faroes and Puget Sound)

Whales are wailing (in Faroes and Puget Sound)

The loss of orcas in Puget Sound and the killing of 1500 pilot whales annually in the Faroes is a sign we need more vigilance. People are polluting, overfishing and still attacking the sea and its creatures. The Faroese do not need food, otherwise they could gladly eat whales. Like too many hunters they are retaining bloodthirsty habits that have no place in society, alongside genocide and other bloodlusts.

Conservation is too conservative in the UK

Conservation is too conservative in the UK

The white-tailed eagle, the dormouse and the large blue butterfly are all threatened. But not by extinction. The threat comes from ill-equipped government who are going to cling to a list of alien plants and animals that is so far out-of-date, Darwin would have laughed. People would then be allowed to exterminate species like this on their land.

Why do rich countries sometimes encourage their citizens to consume meats beyond the normal acceptable species. So many extinctions have been caused by restaurant menus that hunting have created.
