Traditional religions in Africa are changing because of modern society. Practices are morphing and evolving. Traditions that were very strict are now being contradicted.

This article falls under political. It is about women becoming leaders in Africa and breaking through the gender barrier. One of the presidents is from Central African Republic, and has just recently taken office in January. I feel that this is inspirational to all countries and shows that women can do anything.

AUSTRALIA: Abalone export approval

AUSTRALIA: Abalone export approval | Africa and Europe | Scoop.it

THE local abalone fishery has received approval to export its product for another five years.

 

All three management zones, western zone, central zone and southern zone, received approval from the Australian government to continue to export until August 2018.

 

Fisheries Minister Gail Gago said the renewed approval safeguarded the supply of Australian premium seafood to international markets.

 

"This is important as we are aware that in many of our export countries, there is an increasing demand among consumers for clean and safe food production credentials," she said.

 

"It also aligns with the state government's Premium Food and Wine from our Clean Environment strategic priority by protecting and promoting premium produce."

 

Abalone Industry Association of SA president Jonas Woolford said the industry was pleased the export approval had been granted for the fishery.

 

"It shows the fishery is recognised for being sustainable, well managed and benign," he said.

 

"This will provide significant leverage opportunity for us in both domestic and export markets."

 

 

Ms Gago said to further improve the management of the fishery, changes to the Southern Zone Abalone Fishery had been put in place by the state government this season to manage the resource at a more local level.

 

The new fishing arrangements have been developed in partnership with the licence holders in the southern zone fishery following research conducted by South Australian Research and Development Institute Aquatic Sciences under a project funded by the federal government Fisheries Research and Development Corporation.

Australia orders Japanese whalers to stay away

Australia orders Japanese whalers to stay away | Africa and Europe | Scoop.it

Australia has demanded Japan's whalers leave the southern ocean, after a support vessel for the fleet was found to have entered its waters in pursuit of environmental activists.

The Australian environment minister, Tony Burke, told the whalers they were not welcome in the region following confirmation that the Shonan Maru No 2 had entered the country's exclusive economic zone near Macquarie Island.

"Australia has made it clear to Japan on a number of occasions that vessels associated with its whaling programme are not welcome," Burke said in a statement. "Our embassy in Tokyo has conveyed these sentiments directly to the Japanese government."

The Japanese vessel provides security for the rest of the fleet, which sails to the Southern Ocean every winter to conduct what Tokyo calls scientific research.

The fleet hopes to catch 935 minke whales and 50 fin whales before returning to port in the spring. For the past two years, however, catches have been far lower than planned after clashes with activists from the marine conservation group Sea Shepherd.

The Shonan Maru No 2 tailed the Bob Barker, a Sea Shepherd vessel, for two days earlier this week, according to the group. It remained inside Australia's exclusive economic zone, which stretches 200 nautical miles from Macquarie Island. The Japanese ship stopped just short of Australian territorial waters, which extend 12 nautical miles from the island.

"Tokyo has ignored the call from the federal government for this part of the whaling fleet not to enter the zone," Bob Brown, the former Australian Green party leader, who now leads Sea Shepherd's anti-whaling campaign, told Australian radio.

The body that organises Japan's "scientific" hunts said the fleet had the legal right to enter the zone, and accused Sea Shepherd of using dangerous tactics to stop the hunt.

"Since Sea Shepherd has been putting Japanese lives and property at risk, it's been necessary to move as close to Australian territorial waters as possible to keep an eye on them," Glenn Inwood, a spokesman for the Institute of Cetacean Research, told Associated Press.

Australia, the most vocal international opponent of Japan's whaling programme, has taken its campaign to ban the annual hunts to the international court of justice in The Hague.

The International Whaling Commission banned commercial whaling in 1986, but Japan uses a clause in the moratorium to conduct "lethal research". Meat from the hunts is sold on the open market.

Sea Shepherd, whose members have frustrated the Japanese fleet every winter for the past several years, said it would continue its campaign this season, despite a US court decision late last year banning its vessels from sailing within 500 yards of the whalers.
