World leaders deliver a big win for lions, leopards, whale and blue sharks

World leaders deliver a big win for lions, leopards, whale and blue sharks | Wildlife Conservation: People and Stories | Scoop.it
The world’s biodiversity is declining fast- none more so than migratory species. These species range from whales and sharks to elephants, big cats, bats, birds and many more. They represent about 8,000 to 10,000 of the world’s 1.8 million known species. What they have in common is that they all travel at regular intervals, mostly between feeding and breeding grounds; sometimes thousands of miles/ kilometres separate these areas. Other times the distances between the two are relevantly short. Whether a long or short journey, these animals have an innate need to roam often across human boundaries – coastal and landlocked.

Connor Everist's curator insight, December 7, 2017 12:50 PM

Pangolin meat is a delicacy in Uganda, moreover they are one of the most hunted animals in the world. At this rate, they could go endangered fairly soon, and while he can't save them all, Moses Arineitwe has it out to save one at a time. Moses connected with folks on facebook to help rescue the wildlife being poached, stolen from, mistreated or in any way disturbed, and was using social media as a tool to further spread the word.

The Rule of Law in Africa - The Zimbabwean

The Rule of Law in Africa - The Zimbabwean | Wildlife Conservation: People and Stories | Scoop.it
At a meeting in Harare yesterday Mr. Mugabe stated quite clearly, that the persons responsible for the murder of white Zimbabwean farmers during the land invasions would “never be prosecuted”. Tens of thousands of people who were members of Zapu and lived in the south west of the country were murdered, beaten, raped, tortured and harassed between 1983 and 1987 during a campaign that Mr. Mugabe named “Gukurahundi” or the storm that “washes clean”. Over a million-people fled the genocide and moved to South Africa and Botswana. Not a single person has been prosecuted for any of these crimes.
