The Narwhal's Left Tooth: Tusk export ban lifted, issues remain

The Narwhal's Left Tooth: Tusk export ban lifted, issues remain | Eco Friendly Vacations | Scoop.it

One hunter reported that he killed seven narwhals, all of which sank. “This was not the first time I had heard reports of many narwhals being shot but few landed. Just weeks earlier, a man I know to be a skillful hunter confided that he had killed 14 narwhals the previous year but managed to land only one… So much ivory rests on the seafloor, said one hunter, that a salvager could make a fortune,” wrote Nicklen.

MalaMala and the Big Cat Expose – a Guest Blog Post | MalaMala Blog | Eco Friendly Vacations | Scoop.it

We came upon this nugget of gold when we clapped eyes on an awesome video clip showcasing the ‘Big Cat Exposé’ produced by our friends over at Piper and Heath Travel in the U.S. of A. And, of course, we simply had to have it to share with you. Needless to say, they were most obliging. So obliging, in fact, that we got a lot more than we bargained for. Along with the video clip, we got a fabulous write up from Chris Liebenberg himself, owner of Piper and Heath Travel.
