🗞 NEWS 🗞 #DRF #crime #bigpharma 🙌🏼
——————————-
The Chinese Government permits trade in leopard bone between pharmaceutical companies representing the bones of more than 100 leopards.
“This latest development comes on the heels of news of widespread trade in leopard bone wine in China and is deeply concerning as poaching to feed the Chinese market demand for big cat bones continues to decimate wild populations of leopards and other big cats.
Given the huge amount of leopard bone involved in this transaction alone and the small size of China’s own leopard population, the bone being sold may derive from leopards killed illegally in the wild and smuggled illegally into China before being sold through what amounts to a Government laundering scheme.
International commercial trade in leopards was banned by the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species (CITES) in 1975.
By permitting commercial trade in leopard bone, the Chinese Government is helping to maintain and stimulate the huge, unchecked Chinese demand for big cat bones and other body parts which is driving the killing of big cats worldwide. Parallel legal trade stimulates demand for endangered wildlife products, while complicating law enforcement and undermining demand-reduction efforts by legitimising the products in the eyes of the consumer.” #China #leopards #world #bigcats #trade #blackmarket #illegaltrade #wildlife #animals #species #conservation #fauna #bonetrade #leopardbones #animalwelfare #antipoaching #animalkingdom #pharmacy #medicine #handsinthecookiejar #news #info #media #USA

The landscapes out there in this world consistently blow my mind. I’m always fascinated by trees, the ways they bend and stretch to reach the sun. I see photos like this with my own eyes every day and only so often do I get to capture one with my camera. I’m finally finished processing the photos from South Africa so look forward to some of my images soon! 🍃

The tiger's upper canines are the largest of all the big cats and at 2.5 to 3 inches in length are nearly the size of a man's middle finger🖕🏾. These teeth are used in killing and biting. Incisors: These small sharp teeth are used in grasping prey and for tearing meat from bones. Stay up to date on your animal facts here 😊 tag a friend! •

So when ever I take pics of lion fish ppl ask why I don't remove them from the reefs. The lion fish is an invasive species here in the Caribbean that feed on many fish that we stock and their food sources. They have no natural predators here so they damage local fish stocks. I eventually realized they are right although I'm not a fisherman nor have I ever caught a fish. I decided to get this hawaiian sling and me and my bredrin Andy went to try our hands at hunting lion fish, both of us complete noobs. Lion fish are dangerous to handle and clean as they are very venomous and have some wicked spikes that would cause intense pain. They are however safe to eat and taste really good so Andy spent 10 mins on YouTube learning how to clean and prepare lionfish and became an instant expert. It was success and surprisingly easy!!!!! 😃😆 🇦🇬

“We all need to think about the consequences of the life choices we make each day. What do we buy, what do we wear, what do we eat, how is it made, is it from the environment, is there cruelty to animals or cruelty to children? And make choices thinking not only about how is this good for me now, but also how will this affect future generations. In other words, we need to do our part in the decisions we make, in our hearts and in our heads.” - #drjanegoodall
