Anti-poaching drones: the answer!

Anti-poaching drones: the answer!

Posted Sun, 20 Apr 2014 16:40:02 GMT by Julie Cook

How will we prevent the Chinese and other poaching gangs from continuing their greedy and bloodthirsty crimes?

How to provide for indigenous and other peoples with a rare animal as a food source and sustain their diet? (As well as make sure we don’t have another extinction on our hands).

Stalking the fabulous stork in Britain has been a forlorn experience for a long time. Vagrants and margarine have been the only possibilities, but with a little help from their friends, 2 individuals have literally set up home on a Norfolk chimney and seem primed to produce more 2-meter wing-spanned aliens. These effects of global warming are welcome, perhaps they will recognise the current Sahara sand covering the east of England.

Greening our oceans?

After the World Ocean Summit, the long term future is not assured. We can hope that the more positive nations move on aggressively, to combat those people and industries who would violently continue their unthinking habits. Some fishing and eating habits became obsolete when so many species, great and small, started to disappear
