How a sense of sacred can help sustainable business - Restoring Values

How a sense of sacred can help sustainable business - Restoring Values | Rhino poaching | Scoop.it

Jan 8 2013 GUARDIAN SUSTAINABLE BUSINESS

Sustainability leaders could learn from Buddhist Zen master Thich Nhat Hanh, who believes in a deeper human connection with Mother Earth...

 "If nothing is sacred, most of all nature, then we create the potential for the perfect kind of storm, to which it will be virtually impossible to adapt, let alone mitigate." He hits the nail on the head; we are not going to save ourselves and countless species from destruction with innovations in technology and business thinking alone, unless we heal our profound disconnection with Mother Earth. http://www.guardian.co.uk/sustainable-business/sense-sacred-sustainable-business-buddhist

South Africa sics drones on rhino poachers in the Kruger

South Africa sics drones on rhino poachers in the Kruger | Rhino poaching | Scoop.it

Poachers killed more rhinos than ever in 2012, and the South African government is not taking the problem lightly.

 

JOHANNESBURG, South Africa — Rangers at the Kruger National Park, one of Africa’s best-known safari destinations, didn’t have to wait long for their first battle of the new year.

 

Less than a week into 2013, field rangers stationed in a section of the vast park near South Africa’s border with Mozambique found themselves in a gunfight with three suspected poachers. The men escaped, leaving behind a high-caliber hunting rifle and a bag full of rhino horns. The carcass of an endangered white rhinoceros was later found nearby.

 

It was an all-too typical encounter. Five rhinos have been killed in South Africa already this year, including three at Kruger park, which is home to the bulk of the world’s rhino population and has been hardest hit by the poaching crisis....

'Catastrophic Mass Extinction' Likely if Temperatures Rise 6 Degrees

'Catastrophic Mass Extinction' Likely if Temperatures Rise 6 Degrees | Rhino poaching | Scoop.it

Jan 11, 2013 - Common Dreams

Scientists: Humans, animals will have to adapt to survive

 

"Catastrophic" mass extinction is likely within the next 100 years as the earth's temperature increases approximately 6º C and carbon dioxide accumulates in the atmosphere, predict scientists studying the last time the temperature rose rapidly by that much—55 million years ago.

Animals will shrink in order to survive and adapt to exist on less nourishing food, according to the Bighorn Basin Coring Project, currently being conducted by scientists from the US, UK, Germany and the Netherlands who are studying the last time the planet's temperature rose rapidly by 6º C, Climate News Network reports....
