Vaccines for badgers (against bTB)

Vaccines for badgers (against bTB)

Posted Fri, 22 Aug 2014 10:39:42 GMT by JW Dowey

The first attempt at large scale vaccination of badgers in the UK could finally lay to rest the hoary old argument about whether cattle are often infected with bTB by this particular animal. Then again, it could simply spread the discussion to other countries and to other valid points in the same way as perturbation causes the badgers to flee.

Primary forests-the action and the policy

Primary forests-the action and the policy

The animals and plants of the primary forests are those we are desperately trying to save. Their habitats are the primary forest, whether taiga or tropical. To conserve those myriad habitats, these policies and actions are recommended for immediate use by you, the people who can turn the tide and keep the last 5% of the once-great green forest.

Protect penguins from habitat loss

Protect penguins from habitat loss

The Antarctic is, or was, the unspoilt continent. To preserve some of its pristine condition, it should be quite easy to keep the oil, the mining the fishing and, most of all, the greed at arm’s length. For the sake of penguins and healthy, sustainable fish stocks, we have to start this difficult process.

Elephant wars for Kruger

Elephant wars for Kruger

After the International Tiger Day, more 'big game' is in trouble. The targeting of elephant in South Africa would bring matters there to a head, as a final solution must be found to this serious lack of conservation success for both rhino and elephant.

International Tiger Day: The remaining 3,200 tigers from 6 sub-species are lucky to be free, but also suffer severely from human interference and frequent attack. It is our job above all to ensure that the distinct tigers are able to breed and reproduce the animals that can survive in their 6 distinct niches. Without help, I'm afraid there is no future whatsoever. The Far East is responsible for huge losses of tigers (elephants, bears, sharks and rhinos, too) and "breeding programs" have to be curtailed when they are obviously simply selling tiger parts. Awareness and ultimate protection will all contribute to a successful defense of these last of the really big cats.

More news from Asia today.In what way do nuclear weapons affect our environmental aims? Perhaps we are all suffering from the results of previous testing. It remains to be seen exactly how important these moves towards a nuclear free world work out, after Chernobyl's disastrous aftermath and the possibilities of Fukushima's contamination of the Pacific.
