Here is the promised simple report on the first day of the big Korean Biodiversity convention. We’ll have to wait longer for anything more concrete.

No Bryde's for the future?

No Bryde's for the future?

Posted Sat, 04 Oct 2014 08:18:00 GMT by Paul Robinson

To live in the heavily industrialised coastlines of the world must be hell. These animals that do survive have already coped with the worst that life or humans can throw at them. Even if we manage to save these Bryde’s whales, will they survive the fish diet we have contaminated for them?

Cuscomys comes back from the dead

Cuscomys comes back from the dead

Any new species that is discovered is worth our time and effort to conserve. This mammal has been climbing in the Andean forest since the Incas kept them. We missed a lot of animals up there, as nobody lives in the remote area any more. Now we can make up for any Inca maltreatment, or reconcile with what may have been a cuddly pet!

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.
