-▶ MASSIVE BIRD SLAUGHTER AROUND THE MEDITERRANEAN

                                          SHOCKING PHOTOS

Each year, millions of songbirds are killed for food, for profit or just for the joy of shooting something, as they move from their winter grounds in AFRICA to their summer breeding territories in Europe.

In EGYPT, hundreds of miles of nets cover the entire coastline, catching almost every bird that makes its way to shore from across the Mediterranean Sea. In ALBANIA, hunters set up dozens of hunting blinds inside wildlife refuges while officials turn a blind eye.

In CYPRUS, trees are outfitted with glue-covered lime sticks that catch birds like flies on flypaper as they attempt to land, breaking wings as the birds struggle to free themselves. The problem is widespread and growing as new methods and technology increase the deadly toll of the annual slaughter.... http://focusingonwildlife.com/news/massive-bird-slaughter-around-the-mediterranean-shocking-photos/

-▶ HUNTERS SWEAR OFF KILLING IN BID TO PRESERVE IRANIAN WILDLIFE. "Hunting is out of control, and it’s destroying our wildlife. That’s why I and other hunters decided to set an example by taking an oath to stop killing all animals. We hope that this will make a dent in the problem, but the most effective solution would be for the government to revoke the huge number of gun licenses it has issued in recent years."  http://observers.france24.com/content/20140317-iranian-hunters-rifles-protect-species

-▶ CAN LONG-DISTANCE MIGRATING SHOREBIRD SURVIVE. Rufa red knot faces depletion of its food sources and its Arctic breeding grounds.
 Twice a year, the rufa red knot performs one of the planet's most amazing migrations. After wintering in the southern reaches of Argentina and Chile, the red knot will fly roughly 9,300 miles (15,000 kilometers) north, eventually reaching the Canadian Arctic for a summer of mating and breeding. Come fall, it will return south, this robin-size bird with a mere 20-inch (51-centimeter) wingspan flying without rest for stretches of up to 1,500 miles (2,400 kilometers) http://news.nationalgeographic.com/news/2013/10/131003-rufa-red-knot-threatened-endangered-migrating-birds/#close-modal
