International cooperation can create recovery from the Aral Sea disaster

International cooperation can create recovery from the Aral Sea disaster

Posted Thu, 30 Oct 2014 11:41:00 GMT by Dave Armstrong

The conference we mentioned last week has produced very hopeful 'green shoots' of hope for financial, agricultural and hydrological solutions to the problems facing the peoples around the Aral Sea. The environmental catastrophe of toxic dust, total loss of species and livelihoods and currently high levels of cancers and TB have finally stirred up increased international cooperation from a multitude of partners and donors such as Asian and Islamic banks. First, we have some heartening eco-news..

No Bryde's for the future?

No Bryde's for the future?

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?

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

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.

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.
