Gaborone Declaration adopted

In an effort to show to the world their commitment to taking issues of environmental destruction and climate change head on, 10 African countries’ leaders converged in Gaborone to carve a solidarity document that would be presented at next month’s Rio 20+ summit. The Botswana government in collaboration Conservation International hosted representatives from Liberia, Namibia, Tanzania, Mozambique, Rwanda, Gabon, Kenya, South Africa and Ghana at the Gaborone International Conference Centre for a two day Summit in a bid to churn out a long term agreement on how to restore and sustain the environment while still fostering economic and human development of communities.....

Pokot gunmen invade Laikipia conservancy, kill wild animals | Human-Wildlife Conflict: Who Has the Right of Way? | Scoop.it
Several wild animals have been killed during raids by suspected Pokot herdsmen on Mugie conservancy and other parts of Laikipa. On Monday night, heavily-armed militias shot up and set fires to farms as they drove vast herds of cattle into the private 49,000-acre conservancy. The attackers used guns, spears, arrows and rungus against workers and guards. Unconfirmed reports indicated at least one staff member was shot in the ambush.

The Vanishing Faces of African Wildlife

The Vanishing Faces of African Wildlife - Photographer Fred von Winckelmann and poet Andrew Mercer combine their significant talents to make us think about The Vanishing Faces Of African Wildlife

8B DanielO's curator insight, February 9, 9:35 AM

This article is about how photographer Fred von Winckelmann and poet Andrew Mercer, combined their works to inspire the people about saving endangered species. They together wrote a blog called “Vanishing” containing pictures and poems about extincting species in Africa. This poem inspired “a big heart” blog to write and tell others about what they are trying to do. They are trying to spread the news of endangered species around the world and let the people notice what we could do or volunteer to make a difference in the world.

 

This article helps me understand Africa because the blog tells the reader how African animals are getting endangered and possible to become extinct. Africa has the most extinct animals on earth, and if these animals get endangered and extinct, the food chain will get distributed, destroying our ecosystem. This helps me understand how we should help African animals, not just the benefit of Africa, but for the benefit of everyone. I think people should care more about endangered animals. Many people may not realize, but by killing 1 animal, they are killing hundreds of that kind of animals in the future. This may cause to, not only just to animal, but the world extinction. I hope there is more people like Fred von Winckelmann and Andrew Mercer who realizes what we had done to our ecosystem and how we could solve the problem.

Bushmeat consumption endangers wildlife populations in Tanzania 

Bushmeat consumption endangers wildlife populations in Tanzania  | Human-Wildlife Conflict: Who Has the Right of Way? | Scoop.it

Tanzanian conservationists have said there was alarming proof that Tanzania's wildlife populations could be wiped out in the near future as a result of over-hunting for bushmeat consumption.


Apart from the widely reported elephant and rhino poaching incidents, conservationists now warn that there is a much bigger but under-reported crisis involving the poaching of other wildlife animals such as impalas, wildebeest and zebras for bushmeat.


They estimate that up to 50 per cent of Tanzania's total wildlife population has already been decimated for bushmeat, which apart from being consumed locally is also reportedly exported to the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), war-torn Somalia, Burundi, Sudan and other neighbouring countries.

How A Sense of Sacred Can Help A Sustainable Environment - Restoring Values

How A Sense of Sacred Can Help A Sustainable Environment - Restoring Values | Human-Wildlife Conflict: Who Has the Right of Way? | Scoop.it

A human being is a part of the whole, called by us the “Universe,” a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separate from the rest—a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us.Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty. Nobody is able to achieve this completely, but the striving for such achievement is in itself a part of the liberation, and a foundation for inner security."~ Albert Einstein

World Lion Day, was celebrated globally on 10 August 2013, and presented the perfect opportunity for the world to take note of the plight of the African Lion, for us all to take the time to ponder the reality of today’s pressures on wildlife and the wilderness sustaining these wondrous animals who have, to date, stood the test of time – but for how long will they be able to run from Man?
