Conservation and sport help turtles

Posted Sun, 27 Oct 2013 11:59:00 GMT by Dave Armstrong

New methods of promoting conservation are very much needed, as turtles approach extinction for some species. The golfers are among those who could easily give a lead in helping out endangered animals, or even those plants on the links!

Summer holiday for whales - in the North Sea!

Summer holiday for whales - in the North Sea!

Posted Tue, 22 Oct 2013 14:05:00 GMT by Paul Robinson

When good figures appear in reports, we tend to forget about needless slaughter of whales in places such as Iceland and Japan. However, we can never forget the inability to change and the refusal to accept other people’s opinions.

All over the world, big city zoos are trying to maintain habitats for their ecological opposite. Will this be the future function for these institutions?

Oil threat to Virunga National Park

When oil money contaminates Africa, it has produced no improvement in the lot of local people. In perhaps the most spectacular of wildlife 'locations' on earth, it is time to draw the line and pull out all the stops that conservation has.

Romania isn’t the first country in the EU to come to mind for conservation, but they are extremely rich in species, habitats and environment. Ask the reptiles!

With pseudonyms because the state is still controlling them, conservation activists in “Persia” protect their bears and leopard. Much more work will keep them busy with anti-pollution measures and protecting the tiny creatures and plants that give Iran such beautiful biodiversity.

Tapirs losing habitat and they’re still hunted!

Tapirs losing habitat and they’re still hunted!

Worldwide, even the obvious and large animals are in danger, never mind the tiny and inconspicuous species, such as the tapir. How on earth can we manage to restrain our own species from the careless and useless destruction of habitat that is the basis of almost every extinction?

This lake will become a great tourist attraction with its unbeatable karst scenery, but at what cost do we develop for tourists, losing even mammal biodiversity.

The Wilding of Europe

Posted Fri, 27 Sep 2013 10:48:24 GMT by Dave Armstrong

There is a need to celebrate some of our successes in conservation, and perhaps our most needy continent in terms of loss of historic niches, is Europe. This document, prepared for an October conference is a great achievement in itself, as well as that of all of those past and present conservationists who had enough foresight to get out and do this!

When people get involved with such an emotional issue as our environment, it is perhaps permissible to become heated, but you have to be deeply involved to make judgements on people sitting next to you.

When you next plan to attack a herd of goats, it would be wise, if you were a predator, to check if a giant guardian is with them.

Bluefin tuna - the end?

When we assess the ways in which bluefin tuna have been treated over the past two decades, there will be a need to apply the hard lessons of failure and irresponsible fishing.

Evidence is needed for the survival of many critically endangered animals when they disappear from our sight and reappear many years later in situations such as the open ocean or the dense tropical forests. Conservationists desperately need to know how they can be helped through their young stages and brought back from the brink of extinction.

The hedgehog species are found in Eurasia and Africa, all following the basic body plan of protective prickles and an insectivorous diet. The protection they need from predation sometimes seems to be mainly from traffic, but badgers and others do affect their distribution.
