Halloween at sea

30 Oct 2019

For several years now, 3 monster trawlers have been haunting the Channel, the Irish Sea and the Northeast Atlantic up to the Arctic Ocean. Using their power, their European flags and their super powerful sonars, they detect and collect in their 500-meter-long trawling nets schools of mackerel, herring, whiting and saurel. The fish are pumped into the nets, sucked into pipes, sorted in freezing rooms, stuffed into 25-kg parcels, unloaded in the Netherlands and most of them are then sent to Western Africa in reefer ships. The sea monsters are accused of contributing to the exhaustion of sea resources in the South Atlantic and to the ruin of local flotillas, especially in Mauritania. Their crew is multinational, their command is European.

Elephant calves trade : forcing through before the market closes

25 Oct 2019

Update 3:30 p.m.: after a 13-hour flight, the 32 calves arrived in Shanghai in an unknown condition. Temperature on boarding: 38°C. Temperature on arrival: 19°C.

Yesterday, 32 elephant calves were exfiltrated by a Saudia Airlines cargo plane from the Victoria Falls airport in Zimbabwe to China. The plane made a night stopover in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

The calves’ final destination is business classified. It is probable that one of the beneficiaries of the calves used as attractive product is animals is the Guangzhou safari park, where uninformed visitors can already admire elephants suffering from PTSD (Posttraumatic stress disorder) due to their violent capture, the separation with their family and captivity.

Notre-Dame de Paris, a lead blast

18 Oct 2019

Notre-Dame de Paris
Press release n°10

September 2017. The Direction Régionale des Affaires Culturelles (DRAC, Regional Directorate of Cultural Affairs) carries out a test campaign in Paris to assess the distribution of lead dust in the streets near historical monuments. This campaign proves that the Ministry of Culture was aware of the risks of lead dust emission and dispersal around historical monuments since at least 2017. This dissemination is caused by erosion, wear of the lead foils and other lead decorations and coatings on the inside and outside structure of the historic monuments. All 20 Parisian districts were included. 64 samples are lower than 1000 µg/m2 (or 1 mg), 27 go from 1000 to 3000 µg/m2, 6 from 3000 to 5000 µg/m2. Five go over a 5000 µg/m2 limit with a maximum of 21,175 µg/m2 near the Père Lachaise cemetery. It emerges from the statistical analysis of these results that the majority of Parisian streets were not contaminated by lead dust over the 1000 µg/m2 threshold before the Notre-Dame fire. This 1000 µg/m2 threshold taken as a reference by the study was set by the May 12, 2009 decree regarding the inspection of works with lead. The latter value must be respected when checking at the end of emergency work to eliminate the risk of lead exposure in a living area. The samples came from sites polluted by the lead from monuments as well from the urban heating system and the print of ancient metallurgic workshops and combustion from tetraethyl lead fuel. Despite the combination of all these sources, it is obvious that Paris’ streets before the Notre-Dame fire were not in the whole soiled by an extravagant, homogenous and irreversible lead pollution.

CITES CoP18 Press release n°1

The 18th meeting of the Conference of the 184 Parties (CoP) to the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora – CITES – is meeting in Geneva from 17 to 28 August 2019. Robin des Bois (Robin Hood), the Paris based NGO, has been an observer at CITES for 30 years. This conference was scheduled to be held in Colombo in May-June 2019. It was postponed and then moved to Switzerland due to the April 21 attacks in Sri Lanka.
Will CITES prove that it is competent to coordinate the international cooperation against environmental crime and resist the siren song of the wildlife extinction capitalism?
Will CITES Parties finally recognize that wild animals are No Border and that species such as giraffes and elephants should have the right to move across political and administrative boundaries?
