The rate at which the virus mutates and generates new strands of this virus is frightening and it seems scientists are a few generations behind trying to keep up with effective vaccines, so the risk of a pandemic is a fact we cannot ignore.

Will Zimbabwe’s wildlife ever recover from this mass-murder?
via ‘Bigwigs involved in cyanide poisoning’ – DailyNews Live by Bridget Mananavire 29 OCTOBER 2013
A wildlife conservation organisation kicked out of Hwange National Park has alleged that government bigwigs were involved in the cyanide poisoning of wildlife.
More than 100 elephants have died of cyanide poisoning at Hwange National Park in one of the worst poaching atrocities in Zimbabwe.
John Rodrigues, the Zimbabwe Conservation Task Force (ZCTF) chairperson, said it was shocking that his organisation that had invested more than $1,5 million dollars on conservation of wildlife was now an enemy and denied access to Hwange and other national parks.
“They are afraid we will tell people the truth about the poaching situation and how the elephants were killed,” Rodrigues said, without mentioning names.
“There is a cover-up going on there at Hwange, and bigwigs are involved.
“We have helped in the conservation of wildlife and used more than…

“The conservation of blackbucks would include securing their habitat. Mainly, we want to keep their population intact by checking poaching. For this, we will take several measures such as engaging more manpower for vigil,” said a senior forest official.
Official sources said blackbucks are seen mostly in the Balukhand-Konark coastal plain in Puri district and Balipadar-Bhetnoi and other nearby areas in Ganjam district. At present, their population is about 2,300 in the state.
According to forest officials, in 2012-13, at least seven blackbucks had died in Aska region of Ganjam district. Official report said some died due to infighting and some fell prey to poachers.
“The backbuck population has increased since 2011 despite stray casualties. Going…

Reblogged from Videos4volunteers:
is about to celebrate its 20th year in existence. Due to Archelon’s work, many injured turtles have been returned to the wild and the main nesting areas of this endangered species are closely monitored. Sadly however, still over 500 sea turtles die in Greece each year despite the significant work of the volunteers.
Through its stranding network Archelon is able to provide medical care to injured turtles found anywhere in Greece. This network also provides vital information about sea turtle fatalities which help the organization understand the key threats to sea turtles. Life at the rescue centre is always very dynamic with something new happening every day. The winter is particularly hard as sea turtles need warm waters to help the medicines work and the volunteers also suffer the same cold temperatures in their converted railway carriage shelter.
This is a fascinating story with amazing people and heart breaking events for sure along the way. We know that these days the best way to tell a story is through video and social media and we are making this documentary so that everybody can see first hand what life is like on the cutting edge of environmental conservation. We are not a film company, we are just a bunch of volunteers who want to help and in turn we are going to be asking for your help to. The final film will be used by Archelon to promote their work but will also be available for free to whoever wants to use it. As far as we are concerned the more people that learn about the plight of the sea turtles the better. Please sign up now to follow us and find out how you can really help..
Since the release of the film Blackfish, it seems like most people these days can’t think about SeaWorld without also thinking about the sad lives of the lonely animals it imprisons.
Did you know that in the wild, orcas swim up to 100 miles a day? At SeaWorld, they live in tiny tanks with hardly any room to swim around, which causes them to be stressed, bored, and depressed, like this one is:
Repetitive, harmful behavior is pretty common at SeaWorld, too, like what this orca, who banged his head on a landing platform, did to himself:
The constant stress of confinement causes unusual behavior that likely wouldn’t happen to orcas in the wild, like vomiting. 😦
Aren’t you tired of seeing SeaWorld get away with using and abusing orcas and other marine animals for “entertainment”?
You can help put an end to SeaWorld’s cruelty right now by completing…
