WWF Honors Ofir Drori – the Enemy of Africa’s Roughest WildlifeTraffickers

Green Prophet

The image of this baby chimp haunted him, he said, so when he returned to his rented apartment, he poured his anger into an outline for an NGO called The Last Great Ape Organization Cameroon (LAGA). He confiscated the chimp, named Future, who is expected to be re-introduced to the wild by a professional rehabilitation center, and within seven months, Drori was almost singlehandedly responsible for the first enforcement of a law long designed to protect Cameroon’s wildlife.

Color Me Olivaceous

Olive must favor greenbuls; not only do we have the aforementioned olive greenbuls, but we’re also blessed with Olive-Greenbuls in both Toro and Cameroon. Cameroon boasts Olive-pigeons as well, as does Sao Tome, Comoro, and greater Africa. While green is rather common color in avian plumage, it rarely attains the flamboyance of a parrot’s chartreuse or the emerald of a hummingbird. More birds are adorned in more practical, which is to say muted tones.

Why Are Pangolins Endangered?

Greentumble

Cameroon. Pangolins are small nocturnal creatures. who quietly roam through forests and savannahs eating termites and ants. They are solitary and easily frightened. Naturally shy creatures, they are seldom seen. Yet those dealing in the profitable illegal trade for them have been terribly effective in finding them. Lacking the charisma of the largest or fastest animals of the world, the fact that they are being poached to extinction has gone largely unnoticed by the world.

Middle East’s Wildlife Smuggling Putting Species At Risk

Karl Ammann, who was interviewed by Green Prophet also claimed that dozens of gorillas and hundreds of chimpanzees have been taken from Cameroon via Nigeria to Egypt. The demand for exotic animals in the Middle East – and particularly in the Gulf and Egypt- is putting animal’s lives at risk. From pet cheetahs on the streets of Duba i to python and falcon egg smuggling , the Middle East clearly has a wildlife trafficking problem.

A Life Lesson from Poor Countries

The Green Changemakers

The article, which talks about the reasons some countries are poor, takes Cameroon as an example: The average Cameroonian is eight times poorer than the average citizen of the world and almost 50 times poorer than the typical American. And Cameroon is getting poorer. Cameroon’s tragedy is that there is nothing to hold self-interest in check. By Donald Latumahina I always like to extract life lessons from seemingly unrelated ideas.

Masdar’s Carbon Capture Program Could Lead to Mass Delirium and Comas

In 1986, 100,000 tons of CO2 were released naturally from a volcanic lake in Cameroon. Oil and gas companies believe that CCS will allow fossil-burning to continue unabated, but health leaders expose the potential for widespread human fatalities in the event of accidental leaks. The United States Department of Energy has pledged to match Masdar’s $700,000 carbon capture research program with $3 Million of US taxpayer money.

Analysis by country of fossil fuel burning-based Carbon Debt and Carbon Credit

Green Blog

Fossil fuel burning yielding the greenhouse gas (GHG) carbon dioxide (CO2) is a major component of man-made global warming. In relation to carbon pollution from the burning of fossil fuels, Net Carbon Debt is equal to the Historical Carbon Debt (from fossil fuel burning since the start of the Industrial Revolution in circa 1750) minus the Carbon Credit (the residual carbon pollution from fossil fuel burning permitted between now and zero emissions in 2050).
