Mown down: The wildlife toll on UK's roadsides | My Funny Africa.. Bushwhacker anecdotes | Scoop.it
Would you like to see a new national park created in Britain? At no cost? It could be done today, and all it would take is restraint from councils and highways authorities. How?

Via Maria Nunzia @Varvera
Greer Noble's insight:

Yes.. any and as many UK national parks as possible please! How? Extend exising ones.. form new ones by acquiring government land.. donated land.. then raising funds through various competitions, charities, auctions and working with the department of wildlife. But first make it law that impenatrable barriers be errected alongside all highways where foxes, hares, deer etc are likely to cross.

The Economics Of The Illegal Wildlife Trade

The Economics Of The Illegal Wildlife Trade | My Funny Africa.. Bushwhacker anecdotes | Scoop.it

May 29, 2013 Economy Watch

THE ECONOMICS OF THE ILLEGAL WILDLIFE TRADE

The illegal trade of animals or animal parts has become one of the most lucrative black market activities in the world. Driven by the promise of high profit margins, poachers in Africa – namely militias, armed groups, and insurgent groups – have driven rhinos and elephants close to extinction, while murdering hundreds of park rangers in the process.  NGOs and governments now face a race against time to reduce demand for wildlife trade, particularly in Asia, as well as to equip those on the frontline to fight a well-armed enemy.... http://www.economywatch.com/economy-business-and-finance-news/the-economics-of-the-illegal-wildlife-trade.29-05.html

Fantastic google! Well let's hope it will also be used to curb the source of all problems.. ie to educate indigenous peoples to STOP BREEDING in times of a proverbial 'drought' and stop invading wild animals habitat (there's supposed to be  a balance) and STOP BEGGING.. the world is sick and tired of this BEGGING! If there's the right balance there should be enough for everyone. Elephants stop propogating when there's a drought.. so should humans!
