David Kirby has been a professional journalist for 25 years. His third book, Death at Seaworld, was published in 2012.

The annual dolphin hunt at the cove in Taiji, Japan, began on Monday. For the next six months, hundreds of dolphins will be rounded up and killed, their meat sold in stores and restaurants in Japan and other countries. But butchered dolphins are becoming scarcer on the Japanese market, which is good not only for the dolphins but for public health.

Why? Taiji dolphin products are riddled with mercury.

Seven published studies have found dangerously high concentrations of mercury, a neurotoxin that damages human brain development and the nervous system, in all nine dolphin species. The main source of marine mercury pollution: coal-burning power plants and other heavy industries.

The Environmental Investigative Agency, a London-based nonprofit, purchased nine dolphin…

Experts Warn of ‘Inevitable’ Fukushima Disaster in California Nation of Change ANTHONY GUCCIARDI NATURAL SOCIETY / NEWS REPORT Wednesday 3 September 2014

“………In statements made during a presentation on water ecology at the University of Alberta, award winning scientist David Suzuki went on record in saying that in the event of another seven or above earthquake, which he says has about a 95% chance of occurring over the next three years, it would require a complete evacuation of North America and mean ‘bye bye Japan’.

“I have seen a paper which says that if in fact the fourth plant goes under in an earthquake and those rods are exposed, it’s bye bye Japan and everybody on the west coast of North America should evacuate,” he said.

Fukushima-molten-coresSpecifically speaking to the nature of Fukushima’s ticking time bomb, Suzuki began the breakdown of the plant’s numerous threats with stating the very real concept that Fukushima is…

So very sad to see respected conservationists supporting the slaughter of Africa’s wildlife. It makes sense when you see where a lot of their funding comes from. Much like the US Govt will fail in enforcing gun control in the USA because of lobbying by vested interests such as the NRA (and the US firearms & weapons industry.)

“Research shows that hunting male lions at least five years of age has no negative effect on populations,” said Ben Carter, Dallas Safari Club executive director. “We adopted a six-year rule because we recognize the difficulties in judging age, especially…

A message to Fox Hunters

Rantings From a Virtual Soapbox

All you fox hunters out there, you are killing a sentient being. Look how playful the fox is in the first video, just like your pet dog upon whom you may lavish your attention – odd but true people who enjoy killing foxes may like any of us have a dog as a companion animal.

Foxes are thinking feeling creatures who wish to live as do you or your dog.

How to Wash One´s Hands From Animal Testing

Alexandra´s Animal Awareness Blog

When it comes to cleaning, washing, scrubbing, and polishing most people who do not want to support any animal testing have tried to find the right company for their needs. And that one company often was Seventh Generation. So the news that this company has not kept up with their promotional ads, stating they were not supporting testing on animals is a betrayal to all who meant well for the animals.

“The company has been an outspoken advocate of a number of campaigns that promote tests on animals, including its own Million Baby Crawl. Now the company has gone even further by refusing to support reforms to the Toxic Substances Control Act that would reduce the number of animals poisoned and killed in experiments.

We have tried for years to persuade Seventh Generation to pull its support for these pointless tests, but the company has stated that supporting…

Dolphin virus adds to deaths in troubled Florida lagoon

Date:03-Sep-14
Country: USA
Author: Barbara Liston

A measles-like virus that is blamed for killing hundreds of dolphins on the U.S. East Coast has spread into a Florida lagoon where hundreds of manatees, brown pelicans and dolphins already died mysteriously in recent years.

The Indian River Lagoon, south of the Kennedy Space Center, was the scene of the unexplained deaths in 2012 and 2013 and is now threatened by cetacean morbillivirus, which is related to the virus that causes measles in humans.

Megan Stolen, a research scientist from the Hubbs-SeaWorld Research Institute, said on Tuesday that the disease was new to Florida’s Intercoastal Waterway, which includes the Indian River Lagoon, but that the deaths appear to be over.

She said 14 dead dolphins, including nine calves, had been found in August north of Kennedy Space Center and that another four dolphins…

India: Rise in Tiger Skin Seizures Raises Doubts over Conservation efforts

CHENNAI: The alarming rise in poaching of tigers has raised serious questions over the efficacy of conservation efforts aimed at preserving the big cats in the country.

Sample this: eight cases of tiger skins seizures from poachers were reported in as many months this year, according to the latest figures of the National Tiger Conservation Authority (NTCA). The fact that it is three less than that the number of cases recorded by an NGO working in the field may not come as a consolation.

According to NTCA, three of these cases were reported in Maharashtra, and two each in Tamil Nadu and Andhra Pradesh. In comparison, there were five…
