Join Eli Weiss this week with Chris Mercer discussing the Cop-OUT of CITES!!! There is a disturbing trend with far reaching consequences when wild life becomes, as my guest Chris Mercer calls it, Alternative Livestock and the general public is being misled…. The ruling of #Lions, #Elephants, and #Rhinos is not only shocking; it presents conservationists and active wildlife saver with a whole new challenge. New boundaries are being crossed, losses expanding, and the last frontier of wild life is under siege… If we do not choose to SEE, COMPREHEND, and ACCEPT what is going on in the world of wildlife, then our ecosystem will collapse and in turn we will collapse.
Join Eli Weiss with Drew Abrahamson & Paul Tully as we discuss CannedLion Farming.. With the recent and upsetting ruling on Lion conservation, the trade and Wildlife Crime will go on. We PEOPLE must stand up and #saveourwildlife from #Extinction and that is forever. Drew and Paul take us through the life cycle of captive lions vs. ‘reserves’ in a country where wildlife is completely fenced in- and how Captured In Africa Foundation and Captured In Africa – Exclusive Safaris raise awareness through #Tourism sector and schools, Tune in Monday at 8 a.m. PT on Oct 10th.
Decades of data tells us our world is quickly sliding past tipping points to points of no return. In just the last decade viable populations across the board have or are disappearing. That we not reaching global sustainable development and environmental goals compatible and conducive to the continuance of life as we know it. We must take action now to implement multilayered solutions, options and alternatives. The decisions of trade in endangered flora and fauna is CITES. CoP17 is happening right now. So what is CITES? How will the decisions made there affect life as we know it? To better understand what is at stake, today we have Nick Lynch and Tim Gorski,two of a team of four WildiZe Observers to CITES reporting direct from Johannesburg.
