  • Following a year-long investigation into lion farming in South Africa, a recent article by Lord Ashcroft (former Deputy Chairman of the Conservative Party) claims that lions are being bred en mass to be slaughtered for medicine and trinkets in the far east. ⁣
⁣
In just 20 years, lion populations have fallen by 43% and only 20,000 remain in the wild. But why has the ‘king of the jungle’ suddenly come under threat and how is this related to tigers? ⁣
⁣
For hundreds of years, tiger parts and their derivatives have been used in traditional Asian medicines for the belief they cure disease and replenish the body’s ‘essential energy’. This demand has driven a 96% decline in tiger populations in just 100 years and has motivated consumers and criminal syndicates to turn their attention to lions as a viable alternative. ⁣
⁣
The investigation concluded that in the space of just two days, “54 lions were killed in a single slaughterhouse, so that their bones could be harvested and sent to companies who want to use them in traditional Asian medicine.” The legal market of lion bones and skeletons to Asia from South Africa, who’s quota was almost doubled last year, creates a prime opportunity for illegally obtained tiger parts to be laundered into a legal market, condoning consumptive use in Asia. This undermines efforts to change behaviours and reduce consumptive demand for disproved traditional medicines and continues to threaten wild lion and tiger populations across their natural habitats. ⁣
⁣
If we are to protect the remaining wild tiger and lion populations, we must debunk the myth that animal parts hold medicinal value, otherwise we will see the extinction of tigers within our lifetime. ⁣

  • Studying the northern territories of Canada, scientists have made an unpleasant discovery.  It turned out that the permafrost in the north of the country began to melt 70 years earlier than the forecast period.  After research, scientists found that where a few years ago, the permafrost was stable, now it has begun to thaw actively.  Although, after a previous expedition to the northern territory of Canada, scientists calculated that the melting would begin no sooner than after 70 years, or even later.  What does the current situation mean?  The fact that global climate change is taking place at a much faster pace than previously thought.  The rise in air temperature is ahead of all available forecasts.  And, of course, it’s not good for you and me.  #livingplanet #amazingplanet #globalwarming #changingclimate #planetearth #nature #ecology #globalchangingclimate #anotherplanet #ecologynews #permafrost

Изучая северные территории Канады учёные сделали неприятное открытие. Оказалось, что вечная мерзлота на севере страны начала таять на 70 лет раньше прогнозируемого срока. Проведя исследования учёные выяснили, что там где ещё несколько лет назад вечная мерзлота была стабильна, теперь она начала активно таять. Хотя после предыдущей экспедиции по северным территории Канады учёные рассчитали, что таяние начнётся не раньше чем через 70 лет, или даже позже. О чем же говорит нынешняя ситуация? О том, что глобальные изменения климата идут гораздо более быстрыми темпами нежели считалось ранее. Рост температуры воздуха опережает все имеющиеся прогнозы. И, естественно, ничего хорошего нам с вами это не сулит. #живаяпланета #удивительнаяпланета #глобальноепотепление #изменениеклимата #планетаземля #природа #экология #глобальноеизменениеклимата #другаяпланета #новостиэкологии #вечнаямерзлота

  • ⚠️PLASTIC‼️ALERT🚱🚯 Es wird immer schlimmer - überall Müll🚮 unsere Erde 🌍 wird von uns Menschen immer weiter verschmutzt und verdreckt. Meere, Ozeane, Seen, Flüsse und viel Strände sind mit Müll überfühlt. 
STOP IT ☝🏼⚠️ ‼️
Jeder einzelne von uns kann mit helfen indem er/sie den eigenen Müll eigenständig wieder mitnimmt oder sinngemäß und fachgerecht entsorgt, und zudem den Müll um einen selbst herum mit aufsammelt und entsorgt. Wir müssen unseren schönen blauen Planeten doch schützen und wie unser Eigenes Baby, vor Gefahren und Verschmutzung bewahren 🙏🏼💙🌈🌎🏄🏽‍♂️🏄🏽‍♀️ Nur gemeinsam können wir daran was ändern. 
Teamriderin @susakk zeigt wie es ganz einfach geht.

  • Trees help clean the air we breathe, filter the water we drink, and provide habitat to over 80% of the world's terrestrial biodiversity. ⁣
TerraGold Plus is happy to give back.  For every order placed on our website we will donate $1.00 to @OneTreePlanted. The simple math is: $1.00 is equal to one tree planted.⁣

  • Have you ever thought to yourself "Self, wouldn't it be great to plant trees on the regular?" or "Man, I wish there was a way to reduce my carbon footprint and make this crazy mixed-up world a little greener without having to look for my credit card every month?" If you have, then good news, you can now become a recurring donor at whatever amount you want! 😃🌲🌲🌲🌲🌲 Simply choose the project that most appeals to you (on our website) and the number of trees you want to plant, then select "make a recurring donation." Easy treesy 🌲😄
.
Link in profile to where we plant, or see today’s Instastory 🙌🏾
.

P.S. we’ll have a nature-lovers raffle at the end of the year so that all monthly recurring donors will be entered to win an awesome mystery gift! 🎁😘🌿

  • The homeland seems to be beckoning me once again. And not just Uganda, Africa in general. At some point, every person living in the diaspora will feel a strong urge to discover or rediscover where they ‘came from’. For me, it happens in bouts. Sometimes influenced by negative experiences, but mostly by the positive and inspirational content out there. I hope we all get a chance to discover and or explore where we ‘come from’ some day, because it can really be a beautiful thing ✨🇺🇬
