Stop Selling Wildlife for Relief Funds

Over 1,000 wild animals will be auctioned off in exchange for emergency relief funds. Not only is selling wildlife like property inhumane, but the measure is also counterproductive as it risks the lives of many animals to save others. Help stop these cruel auctions as soon as possible.

  1. Everything seems so connected it is frightening. I guess they aren’t getting much money as well as losing water from these mines:
    “Uranium mines in Namibia face water shortage
    Uranium mines operated by companies including Rio Tinto Plc and Paladin Energy Ltd. in Namibia face a water shortage as a drought in the southwest African nation curbs supply to the operations and three coastal towns.
    Volumes from the Omaruru Delta acquifer, about 200 kilometers (124 miles) northwest of the capital, Windhoek, have declined to 4 million cubic meters this year from 9 million cubic meters a year earlier, said Nehemia Abraham, under-secretary for water and forestry in the Ministry of Agriculture. The source is in the semi-arid Erongo region, which supplies the towns of Swakopmund, Walvis Bay and Henties Bay and suffers from severe shortages. Water from a desalination plant owned by Areva SA (AREVA), the country’s first such facility, isn’t enough to meet needs of Paladin’s Langer Heinrich uranium mine, China Guangdong Nuclear Power Co.’s Husab uranium project and Rio’s Rössing complex.
    “The water-supply situation at the coastal area has become too critical,” Abraham said by phone yesterday. “Mining companies in the area will have to operate with less water. We are reviewing the situation now and from end of November we might be unable to get enough water from the aquifer to supply to mines.” (Bloomberg Nov. 18, 2013) https://www.wise-uranium.org/umopafr.html#NAGEN
