BREAKING NEWS …. Lion hunting ban just LIFTED in Zambia!


HuntLad

~~May 18, 2015~~ 

The government of Zambia has just decided to lift a ban on the hunting of lions and other big cats. The ban has been in effect since 2013. This unsettling announcement was made by Zambia’s Minister of Tourism, Jean Kapata, during a press conference in Lusaka.

According to the high-ranking official, leopard hunting will resume during the course of the 2015/2016 season with ‘cautionary quotas’, while lion hunting is due to be legal during the 2016/2017 season.

The hunting of lions and other big cats was suspended due to weak regulatory systems; meanwhile, the declining lion population, over-harvesting and habitat loss have also been major factors for banning such hunts.

Since the hunting ban was enforced, international organizations such as the Safari Club International Foundation, have praised Zambia for its wildlife conservation efforts.

We cannot let these efforts be hampered again! Lifting the ban on lion and big cat hunting will mean that all the efforts in the last two years were in vain!

Take action now and let the authorities know that lifting the ban is completely unacceptable. The status of the lion has not changed in Zambia and there is no scientific study to prove that lifting the ban will not effect the existing population!

Sign the petition and ask the authorities in Zambia not to repeal the big cat hunting ban!

Ban canned hunting

Please watch this till the end! The dramatic reality of canned hunting set to the legendary Brian May’s and singer Kerry Ellis’ re-recording of the Oscar winning song ‘Born Free’.

I am here because I am angry.

Angry at being told that the cruelty is only sustainable use when I can see that it is sustained abuse. Must we all swallow the lie that the only way to save African wildlife is by killing animals?

I’m angry about the pampered trophy hunters who come to SA for no other reason than to torture and kill hand reared lions.

Angry about lion farmers who breed lions for no other reason than to provide tame targets to be executed by sadistic killers.

And I’m angry about tourists who are being duped into feeding the canned hunting industry through cub petting.

Angry that volunteers are being misled to work at lion farms that pose as wildlife sanctuaries.

I’m also tired of being told that hunters only want to kill lions to help the impoverished masses in Africa. Let them donate money if that is a real concern.

And here is CITES standing by watching while Africa’s wildlife heritage collapses in front of our eyes. CITES is supposed to control the international trade in wild animals. Instead, it facilitates wildlife trafficking by ignoring the many loop holes.

I see how the hunting industry has invaded and occupied conservation space, in order to pervert conservation policies. How moral outrage is cunningly deflected with slick public relations. How hunters have paralyzed conservation structures in SA.

And made preservation a dirty word.

Something to think about ….. “FRACKING”!!


Frack

~~May 6, 2015~~ 

WHAT IS FRACKING?

Relatively new drilling technology – high-volume horizontal hydraulic fracturing (fracking) – now makes it possible to reach natural gas reserves that underlie many ares in the world.

Hydraulic fracturing is the use of sand, water, and chemicals injected at high pressures to blast open shale rock and release the trapped gas inside. Horizontal drilling (also called “directional drilling”) is just like it sounds: after the well drill reaches a certain vertical depth in the ground, the well is then drilled horizontally.

As with any industrial activity, the development of oil and gas involves risks to air, land, water, wildlife and communities.

The oil and gas drilling industry argues that horizontal fracking is safe because it has been around for 40 years, but that is not correct.

While the use of hydraulic fracturing to drill vertical wells has been around that long, horizontal drilling combined with hydraulic fracturing is very new and only began in Ohio in 2011. The use of horizontal fracking requires millions of gallons of fresh water, acres of land per well pad, and the use of undisclosed chemicals.

As this new combination of drilling technologies has ramped up nationwide, communities have seen a corresponding increase in harmful air emissions, water contamination, and serious problems associated with the disposal of horizontal fracking waste fluids.

Because fracking is so new, laws simply haven’t caught up. That’s why we’ve called on lawmakers to close the gaps in states’ law, and immediately put the necessary protections in place to protect the healthy and well being of all who call our world home.

~~Fracking explained: opportunity or danger~~

Fracking explained in five minutes

Fracking is a controversial topic. On the one side the gas drilling companies, on the other citizen opposed to this drilling method. Politicians are also divided on the matter.
We try to take a neutral look on fracking. It is relevant for all of us, because of high prices for energy and the danger for our drinking water.

This video focuses mostly on the debate currently ongoing in Europe. In a lot of European countries there is a public outcry against fracking, especially in Germany. But the facts in this video are relevant to all of us.
