Poachers kill 300 elephants (and other animals) with cyanide in 'worst massacre in southern Africa for 25 years'

Poachers kill 300 elephants (and other animals) with cyanide in 'worst massacre in southern Africa for 25 years' | KNOWING............. | Scoop.it

Treehugger, October 33, 2013

In 2011, at least 17,000 African elephants were killed for their tusks...

Zimbabwe Hwange National Park...seen from the air to be littered with the deflated corpses of elephants, often with their young calves dead beside them, as well as those of other animals. There is now deep concern that the use of cyanide – first revealed in July, but on a scale that has only now emerged – represents a new and particularly damaging technique in the already soaring poaching trade... http://www.treehugger.com/endangered-species/poachers-kill-300-elephants-cyanide-worst-massacre-southern-africa-25-years.html

BATS AS EFFECTIVE PEST CONTROL
Huffington Post Green, April 13, 2011
▶  BAT DISEASE, WHITE-NOSE SYNDROME, MAY INCREASE, NOT DECREASE,  U.S. FARM PESTICIDE USE: STUDY -

A group of researchers says the threat posed to bats by a fatal disease isn't just a threat to the animals but to American agriculture, one they believe farmers and consumers alike scarcely appreciate.

Bats save American farmers at least $3.7 billion a year in pest-control costs by eating insects that feed on crops, a benefit that could be in jeopardy as a disease that has killed more than a million bats in the Northeast spreads to the Midwest, the researchers said in a paper published in the April 1 edition of the journal Science. They and others fear the disease could eventually affect fruit- and vegetable-growing areas in the West as well. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/04/13/bat-disease-pesticides_n_848556.html
