Staggering discovery! Malaysia has made a record seizure of 50 rhino horns worth an estimated $12 million at Kuala Lumpur airport as they were being flown to Vietnam, authorities said Monday.
Customs officials found the parts in cardboard boxes on August 13 in the cargo terminal of the capital’s airport, said Abdul Kadir Abu Hashim, head of Malaysia’s wildlife department.

The 50 rhino horns weighed 116 kilogrammes (256 pounds) and are worth about 50 million ringgit ($12 million), he told AFP, adding that the seizure was “the biggest ever in (Malaysia’s) history in terms of the number of horns and value”. Vietnam is a hot market for rhino horn, which is believed to have medicinal properties and is in high demand among the communist nation’s growing middle class.

Trade in rhino horn was banned globally in 1977 by the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES), but illegal hunters have decimated rhino populations to sate rampant demand in East Asia.

A single kilo of rhino horn can fetch tens of thousands of dollars in the region, where many falsely believe it can cure cancer.

All rhino species are under threat of extinction, according to the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN). Abdul Kadir said authorities were unable to identify the origin of the animal parts. Rhino horn sent to Asia typically comes from Africa.

Officials also found a huge stash of animal bones — believed to be from tigers and leopards — in the same shipment, with an estimated value of 500,000 ringgit.

Authorities have not made any arrests over the seizures.

I wish you’d give me the green light:/// things won’t be this way forever girl!

Overcrowded bird cages full of poached birds. Captive-bred birds have bands around their legs which can only be fitted on when they are young but I didnt see a single band anywhere. Some birds left in direct sunlight were in danger of overheating.

Poaching without a permit is illegal in Indonesia but enforcement is close to nonexistent.

A formerly exploited woman learned how to take product photography like this. Every ring at Starfish Project helps exploited women develop careers. These photos are some of the first that June took that went on the Starfish Project website. 📸
This week June has been taking photos of new staff in our headquarters office. June has grown a lot in her photography skills! She started off with learning product photography last year and is now responsible for taking all of the product photos on our website. This past spring she even shot the model photos for our spring and summer collections! As she took the staff photos this week it was amazing to see how confident and comfortable she was, and how she spoke with authority in her role as a photographer.

Because of your support, women like June get to experience freedom, establish independence, and develop careers at Starfish Project.

Missing people and one murdered person in Los Angeles need your help. For a week I've been trying to post this but it is getting shadow banned. Missing and murdered people aren't political, and if you callously leverage life to sway an election, you're a psychopath. You have blood on your hands and you are complicit. These lives need to be prioritized over your reactions to illusions, California politicians. If you won't even let us help look for the most vulnerable, I pray for you. I hope you think about these victims every night instead. .

It’s okay to ask for help! It can be daunting to ask for support - you might experience anxiety about telling your story, and that’s understandable. When you meet with an advocate, you never have to tell your story.

#STORY 2 weeks ago I serviced both door panels on my Dodge #RAM #Daytona to resolve various squeaks and rattles.
Whilst I didn’t need to remove the panels completely, I did notice a large amount of plywood in both doors.
Then I realised I didn’t have any door pockets???? (See photo 1 & 2) 😳
Is this how #Dodge construct their door panels... or do I own an ex drugs #mule 👀

This picture was pulled from 417 Magazine. I-44 is a fairly major highway for human trafficking. I would be interested to see the number of calls received in each of these cities. #thirtydaysoffreedom #awareness #campaign #abolitionist #empower #rescue #highway #map #humanrights #humantrafficking #ozarks #missouri #springfield #justiceisinthehandsoftheordinary #modernslavery #travel #trafficking

The girls love this gift for multiple reasons, but they really love to receive something that their Heart Mother specially picked out for them. We can't wait to receive photos from this month's gift, which was a shorts+shirt outfit! 👕👖

Rohingyska kvinnor i flyktinglägren i Bangladesh äter och dricker inte så mycket som de borde. De vill inte behöva gå på de gemensamma toaletterna.

Sug på det det stund.

Enligt Oxfam rapporteras varje vecka hundratals brott som rör könsbaserat våld som sexuella trakasserier, våldtäkt, trafficking och stalking.

Förbannade vare de män som utnyttjar barns och kvinnors utsatthet. Var det än sker. När ska män inse att de äger problemet? Inte kvinnorna och barnen. Aldrig kvinnorna och barnen.
