STOP killing animals and destroying environment

PostAuthor: Anthea » Thu Jun 28, 2018 1:23 am

It seems that humans only know how to destroy

https://youtu.be/5fz2BWxql1k

Think of all the money countries spend on destroying each other and killing innocent people

If 10% of the money spent of weapons were to be spent on preventing conflicts and starvation the world would be a better place

There would be no more refugees - no more innocent children dying

Many thousands of people died as refugees fleeing conflicts

Those countries that supplied weapons to rebels are guilty of mass murder

Those countries that killed innocent people and harmless animals, while attempting to drive out ISIS, are guilty of mass murder

Those countries that thought it better to destroy communities and encourage refugees to flee rather than stop the fighting and allow people to live in peace in their homes, are guilty of mass murder

Those countries that have ignored the plight of the Yazidis are guilty of mass murder

Orphaned for an inch of horn: Tank the baby white rhino is found desperately trying to befriend other rhinos after poachers murder his mother for her tiny nub of horn

Please click to enlarge

The mother-of-four had previously been 'dehorned' to deter roaming poachers
Her youngest, Tank, has been seen trying to befriend another mother

This horrific picture shows the bloody wound poachers left on a rhino so they could snatch less than an inch of its horn in a deadly attack.

956

Hunters tore into the 20-year-old white rhino's face in South Africa despite it previously being 'dehorned' for its own protection.

The attackers killed Bella, who was a mother to four, in Kragga Kamma Game Park in Eastern Cape.

Keepers say her youngest, Tank, was seen this morning trying to befriend another mother and calf while mourning his dead parent in the protected site.

He was injured but this is likely to have resulted from being pushed away by the mother rather than being the work of poachers.

Ayesha Cantor, who runs the park, put out a heartfelt message on Facebook about the tragic death.

'Its just so unreal, for 1cm of horn - we cannot comprehend the waste of it all,' she wrote.

'We have always been acutely aware that these rhino are everyone's rhino, that we are merely their custodians, this has been evident in your outpouring of emotions.

'Thank you dear friends, we know that you are as devastated by this as we are.'

The white rhino is the only one of the five types not to be endangered, but is classified as 'near threatened' by conservationists.

Trophy hunter children pose next to bodies of grizzly bears and lions

PARENTS are causing outrage by flooding social media to proudly share pictures of their young children involved in big game hunting, posing alongside the corpses of huge lions and grizzly bears.

Trophy hunter posing with dead giraffe sparks outrage online

960

The latest anger comes after photos emerged of trophy hunter Tess Thompson Talley posing alongside the corpse of a rare black giraffe.

On the same day, Jaco van Vuuren Safaris from Limpopo Province in South Africa, which is owned and operated by professional hunter Jaco van Vuuren and his wife Tanya, also shared a snap of what appeared to show a father and son from Tajikistan alongside a lion they had killed.

They wrote: “Congratulations on hunting this majestic animal.”

Alaskan hunter Kyle Virgin posted a picture of his daughter Aubrey with her first grizzly bear kill, sending a chilling warning that a spate of animal killings by young children is only just beginning.

He said: “I despise the thought that kids are too young to take hunting.

“We’ve been having people claim there’s no way a nine year old could have killed this bear. Keep watching, we’ve only just begun.”

958

Leo Murray from Queenstown in New Zealand posted a picture of a young boy with a toy gun alongside the decapitated head of a stag, adding: “Hunting is in our blood. Zeb, you little legend.”

Another chilling image shows a young boy staring at his tablet computer while leaning against the corpse of a dead female lion.

959

Pictures are flooding social media of young children involved in big game hunting

Hunter ‘Ryan the Buddha from Wisconsin’ proudly shared a family photo in the driveway with his wife and two daughters alongside a stuffed mountain lion.

He wrote: “The girls said they wanted another cat.”

Tess Thompson Talley posted the snaps of herself with the corpse of the rare black giraffe on Facebook after a trip to South Africa last year.

She wrote alongside the photos: “Prayers for my once in a lifetime dream hunt came true today! Spotted this rare black giraffe bull and stalked him for quite awhile,' the 37-year-old posted alongside the photos.

“I knew it was the one. He was over 18-years-old, 4,000lbs and was blessed to be able to get 2,000lbs of meat from him.”

But her pictures have caused outrage, with Africland sharing her pictures on their Twitter page on June 16, attracting 8,200 mostly furious comments and 45,000 retweets.

It said with the post: “White american savage who is partly a neanderthal comes to Africa and shoot down a very rare black giraffe courtrsey of South Africa stupidity.

“Her name is Tess Thompson Talley. Please share.”

She has since made her Facebook profile private following the backlash.

But US singer Ted Nugent defended her on his Facebook account, claiming giraffes must be managed like deer and elk and beers and cougars.

He wrote: “Ignorance is one thing but the insanity of scrambling to avoid information and truth to eliminate ignorance is downright toxic and obscene.

“Giraffes must be managed just like deer and elk and bears and cougars. How stupid and embarrassing can people be.”

Three poachers are eaten by lions at South African nature reserve :ymapplause:

Three poachers are EATEN by lions after the men broke into South African nature reserve to slaughter rhinos for their horns

    At least three poachers are believed to have been eaten by lions at game reserve
    Men had entered Sibuya Game Reserve in Eastern Province, South Africa
    A head, bloody limbs and three pairs of shoes recovered from the scene
    Staff also found hunting rifles and axe used by poachers to cut off rhino horns
A gang of poachers who broke into a South African game reserve to hunt rhinos came off second best when they were attacked and eaten by a pride of hungry lions.

Nature's justice: At least three poachers are believed to have been eaten by lions at the Sibuya Game Reserve :ymparty:

At least three hunters are believed to have been devoured by the predators, judging by the bloody scene on the Sibuya Game Reserve near Kenton-on-Sea in Eastern Province, South Africa.

One head and a number of bloodied body parts and limbs have been recovered from the area, along with three pairs of empty shoes.

Gruesome: Staff found a head, along with a number of bloodied body parts and limbs at the scene along with three pairs of empty shoes

Staff at Sibuya also found high powered hunting rifles with silencers, wire cutters and an axe used by poachers to cut off rhino horns.

A helicopter was called in to search for more possible poachers, but none have so far been found.

Owner Nick Fox, 60, said: 'We found enough body parts and three pairs of empty shoes which suggest to us that the lions ate at least three of them but it is thick bush and there could be more.

'They came heavily armed with hunting rifles and axes which we have recovered and enough food to last them for several days so we suspect they were after all of our rhinos here.

'But the lions are our watchers and guardians and they picked the wrong pride and became a meal.

Illegal hunt: The poachers had brought high powered hunting rifles with silencers, wire cutters and an axe known to be used by poachers to cut off rhino horns

At least three hunters are believed to have been devoured by the reserve's lion pride, pictured, judging by the bloody scene on the Sibuya Game Reserve

'Whilst we are saddened at any loss of life the poachers came here to kill our animals and this sends out a very clear message to any other poachers that you will not always be the winner'.

The game reserve is one of the most popular in the Eastern Cape, and it is visited by many British tourists.

As well as rhinos and lions, Sibuya's 30 square miles is also is home to the rest of Africa's Big Five: elephant, buffalo and leopard.

In 2016, the reserve lost three rhinos when poachers got into the park and shot them dead and cut off their horns.

However, this time the hunters became the hunted, when they got in the way of the resident lion pride.

Mr Fox said: 'The lions may have eaten more of them it is difficult to tell as the area is very thick with bush and you cannot be sure what they have taken off to feed on elsewhere.

'The best estimate we have so far is that three of the gang were eaten.

'They were armed with high powered rifles with silencers, an axe for the horns, wire cutters and side arms, so were clearly intent on killing rhinos and cutting off their horns.'

Poachers not welcome: A helicopter has searched the area, as more poachers may remain in hiding on the reserve

The remains of the bodies were found as darkness fell on July 3rd, but staff had to wait until daylight on July 4th when the area could be declared safe to go in and recover what was left

Police spokeswoman Captain Mali Govender confirmed that the remains had been found in the lion camp and that detectives were on the scene trying to work out how many were eaten.

Captain Govender said: 'We do not know identities but firearms have been taken by the police and will be sent to the ballistics laboratory to see if they have been used in poaching before'.

Poaching is a major issue on the Eastern Cape with nine rhinos killed by illegal hunters on reserves this year.

In February a poacher was killed by lions in the Umbabat Game Reserve near the Kruger National Park, and his family were forced to identify him using all that was left - his head.

Brutal: How plastic is killing off Arctic wildlife

This bear’s horrific ordeal, witnessed by Geir Wing Gabrielsen, one of the world’s top experts in Arctic toxicology, is just another illustration of plastic pollution in what is supposed to be one of the world’s last pristine wildernesses.

Other victims include reindeer, Arctic foxes, seabirds such as Arctic terns and fulmar, seals and fish which are increasingly being found with pieces of plastic in their stomachs.

Svalbard has a population of just 2,600, most of it in the tiny capital of Longyearbyen, but the plastic is carried here, sometimes over decades, from as far away as America, Canada and the UK on ocean currents, the wind and the sea ice.

Much of it is invisible, ground down by the waves into microplastic pieces smaller than a fifth of an inch (5mm) and microscopic nanoplastic.

Dr Gabrielsen, 63, of the Norwegian Polar Institute, said the crisis is going to get worse without urgent action.

He said: “Worldwide, the industry expects to see a threefold increase in plastic production by 2050. Very little, only 14 per cent, of plastic is being recycled or burned to generate energy.

“We need to recycle much more and even incineration is an interesting way to solve the problem.”

Dr Gabrielsen, who also teaches at the University Centre in Svalbard, said: “We were in a helicopter when we saw the polar bear lying in the snow in the north of Svalbard in 2014 while volunteers were cleaning the beaches of plastic litter.

We are seeing more and more cases of animals getting caught in plastic

“It was a female bear weighing about 200kg [440lb] and had got entangled in a 150kg net. The bear had been tagged in an ear and the net had got caught around that.

“It dragged the net with its teeth from the beach about 300 metres [330 yards] to the snow. We were going to tranquillise it and free it but somehow it wriggled free.

“But we are seeing more and more cases of animals getting caught in plastic – seals with plastic strapping bands around them, seabirds caught in ‘ghost’ fishing nets that have been abandoned at sea, reindeer getting their antlers tangled in strapping bands, ropes or fishing nets, as well as Arctic foxes.”

Other sad images show a dead Arctic tern tangled in plastic rope – one of the world’s most graceful birds denied the chance to perform the world’s longest migration from the Arctic to the Antarctic.

Even the Arctic flowers are contaminated.

On the tundra we found a beautiful pinkish compass flower, which blooms only on its south side, with a strand of rope fibre entwined in its heart.

Dr Gabrielsen, who has carried out research on Svalbard for 37 years, also has the evidence that the problem is getting worse.

In 1983 the Norwegian Polar Institute analysed the stomachs of 40 fulmar, a northern relative of albatrosses which ranges far out to sea plucking krill, squid and fish from the surface.

The NPI found that four fulmar had small bits of plastic in their stomach.

But in 2013 Dr Gabrielsen and a British postgraduate student, Alice Trevail, repeated the experiment and found the situation reversed – with only four birds without plastic in their stomach.

Worse still, in 1983 the affected birds were carrying on average 0.75 pieces each but in 2013 the average was 15.3 pieces, with some having swallowed more than 200 pieces of microplastic.

The average burden carried in the affected birds was 0.08grams – very near the limit recommended by the Ospar Convention (The Convention for the Protection of the Marine Environment of the NorthEast Atlantic).

Dr Gabrielsen said: “Over 0.1g there are indications that the birds will struggle to digest other food and therefore will not get enough energy and die of starvation. “But further south this is a bigger problem for fulmars. Five years ago 24 per cent of the Svalbard birds were above the 0.1g limit.

“In the North Sea 60 to 70 per cent of UK fulmars are over 0.1g. These are birds that can live to be 70 and only start breeding at about eight years old.”

The pollution can be seen on the beaches of Svalbard.

On a short walk along the coast by Longyearbyen, we found plastic sheets, a tyre, plastic bags, old ropes and plastic fibres, all near where Arctic terns were nesting.

Dr Gabrielsen said that on Svalbard about 80 per cent of the plastic comes from the fishing industry which, thanks to climate change, is now trawling waters once inaccessible due to ice.

But plastic is also drifting to this Arctic haven from as far away as America, Canada and China.

Dr Gabrielsen said studies of sea ice have found between 50 and 350 particles of plastic per litre but samples taken between Greenland and Svalbard by Germany’s Alfred Wegener Institute revealed up to 12,000 particles per litre.

He said: “Studies show that 90 per cent of all plastic in the sea is on the sea floor, five per cent on the beaches and five per cent on the surface. What you see on the beaches is just the tip of the iceberg.

“It is getting into the food chain. A Swedish study showed that plankton pick up nanoplastics, get eaten by zooplankton which get eaten by fish and it crosses the blood to brain barrier, changing the behaviour of fish.

“A study by the Norwegian Water Institute of 302 cod caught the length of Norway found that three to five per cent have microplastics in their stomachs but off Bergen, where there is a big human population, the figure rose to 27 per cent.

“We have not yet been able to discover whether this plastic ends up on the plate but the World Economic Forum says that by 2050 there will be more plastic in the sea than fish. If we continue like this, I am sure this will be the case.”

Amazonian 'lost world' spanning TWICE size of Wales
becomes planet’s largest national park


AN Amazonian “lost world” has become the planet’s largest national park – spanning across a vast area of rainforest twice the size of Wales. The 17,000 square miles of impenetrable Colombian jungle contain some of nature’s most remarkable structures famed for their living fossils.

It is also becoming a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Chiribiquete National Park boasts a series of tepuis – the native American word for huge table top mountains – that are not only held sacred by native tribes but inspired Sir Arthur Conan Doyle to write one of his most famous novels.

In the Lost World, the creator of Sherlock Homes tells of an expedition to the Amazon where adventurers find dinosaurs still stalking the peaks of these remote, rocky edifices.

The sheer-sided, sandstone tepuis of the Chiribiquete National Park might not host pterodactyls or tyrannosaurus but they have long been revered as the haunt of the South America’s most fearsome predator, the jaguar.

More than 75,000 rock paintings dating back 20,000 years and depicting hunting, battle and dance scenes coat the walls of rock shelters at the base of the tepuis and are believed to be linked to a religion devoted to the big cat, hailed as symbol of fertility and power.

Today jaguars, river dolphins, giant otters, manatees, tapir and woolly monkeys, along with a colourful array of tropical kingfishers and hummingbirds, are found across the park which has become a living museum because of its unique location.

Chiribiquete stands at the confluence of four South American regions – the Amazon, Andean, Orinoco and Guyanas – so giving it a unique and rich biodiversity of more than 3,000 plant and animal species.

This week has not only seen the park’s landmass increased by nearly 6,000 square miles, UNESCO has decreed it a World Heritage Site to recognise its “outsanding universal value” for nature and people.

Colombia’s Amazon region has been at the heart of vital conservation efforts having suffered 66 per cent of the country’s deforestation.

Climate change, illegal logging and the growing of illicit crops for the drugs trade are all conspiring to destroy the rainforest landscape.

Chiribiquete was originally declared a national park in 1989, doubling in size to 11,000 square miles five years ago, before this week’s major extension.

WWF has been heavily involved in conservation work to preserve Colombia’s wildernesses and welcomes the park’s expansion and new World Heritage Site status.

Rainforest critters are notoriously elusive but can you spot them hidden in these camouflaged snaps? From wood-like stick insects to bark coloured butterflies, these animals are having their own hide-and-seek competition.
