Poachers steal one elephant too many!

Poachers steal one elephant too many!

Posted Fri, 16 May 2014 11:01:00 GMT by Dave Armstrong

The rhinos and elephants of Kruger are among the best-protected in Africa. Still, the greed of ivory poachers and pseudo-medicinal horn suppliers shows its ugly face, much more prominently in other, less militarised zones of conservationist Africa.

Orangs threatened again in Sumatra

Orangs threatened again in Sumatra

Posted Fri, 11 Apr 2014 09:45:01 GMT by Dave Armstrong

The Sumatran problem where people and industry are always given priority over natural ecosystems is reaching a climax, as the last vestiges of tropical forest go under thee axe. apart from the smoke pollution hanging over the burning, the animal species involved are among the rarest large animals anywhere. It's incredible that local interests can still prevent national government and international organisations from trying to conserve these precious areas still left.

It's hard to compare the lives of those people we call women in different parts of the world. Liberation has been achieved and yet, in some nations, it certainly hasn't. What to do? Well, let's make our opinions felt and heard and let’s do it today!

How can we protect our coastal, oceanic and even little seas. As we don't often travel on water nowadays, we need to figure just how 'successful' our various pollutions, fish consumptions and farming and of course the limited conservation efforts have been.

Dump fracking or integrate it?

One of the few frackers in Western Europe, will the UK, go ahead with its risky programme of hydraulic fracturing? Many other nations have banned it completely because of its geological and high-carbon reputation.

Wind and solar energy are beginning to take over in parts of Europe that are not importing low-cost fossil fuels. The green light is especially bright after a vote yesterday in the EU. This could light the way for vast technological improvement, and a healthy future.

Loggers and land-grabbers should leave SE Asia?

Were the ancient Taiwanese or the forest tribes of Borneo responsible for early agricultural practice. Now we can see a clearer picture, it seems likely that both introduced many technologies that improved the lives of Asians, and many other unknown peoples also produced just as many ideas and improvements on the Early Holocene life-style.

International Day for Disaster Reduction

International Day for Disaster Reduction

Posted Sun, 13 Oct 2013 10:00:00 GMT by Paul Robinson

The supply of days may soon run out when we can have simply one day for each cause. Disaster mitigation however is a real problem. If we are to combat the results of earthquakes, hurricanes, droughts and floods, we must prepare to help every member of any community, and not just the ones who can help themselves. There exist many emergency teams who are trained to help with anyone disabled, but it is the community who must also have this training, as it could be anyone who ends up disabled in the disaster!

Today is World Teachers' Day 2013. While many gain notoriety or fame by making profits, the average teacher manages much more by simply developing expertise. She or he simply encourages achievement in others.

Why not rediscover your enthusiasm for every animal on earth? While we concentrate on wildlife, the love of life easily stretches to farm animals, our pets and, of course, the mistreatment that some creatures, both domestic and wild and free, suffer from human interference.

Unresolved, but still liable to blow up into another international row, the Arctic's exploitation is being shown up by the Greenpeace action. Military involvement seems to be part of the Russian reaction to any denial of their supposed rights to territory that belongs to no one.
