Here Today, Gone Tomorrow?


An ITV series called “Extinct” is to be broadcast over a week in December and will “highlight the plight of some of the world’s most endangered species” and how close to their demise they are.  Click the link (Extinct) and keep watching the intro..   There are some beautiful pictures but with grim messages.

    The images in this vid are *beautiful*. It’s such a shame what’s happening in the world. Just makes you want to go out there and do something…

    I think it’s afull what they do to animals, I feel like I want to go out and save them. I think that you should treat others and animals as you want to be treated.

    Ah, Anna ! You are such a caring human being. If only many more people thought the same way as you, these wonderful creatures would be here forever!

  6. You seem to be very concerned about the environment and I was wondering how do you feel about the Japanese and the whaling issue? Here in Australia we see lots of migrating humpback whales and on our very doorstep the Japanese are trying to hunt them under the disguise of “scientific research”. I never knew that scientific research of an endangered species meant killing them for tissue samples. Maybe you can blog about this I think it is an issue people need are interested about (they are here any way).

  7. Thanks Pocket, I did actually blog about whaling some time ago but it’s dropped off the front page. Here it is…

    It’s only a short post and the issue deserves more time and thought.

    It explains that the Japanese dodged the whaling moratorium by calling it scientific research even though there was widespread doubt from the scientists and the experts.

    iceland also recently renewed commercial whaling and has recieved widespread condemnation….”Twenty-four countries and the European Commission expressed their opposition to renewed Icelandic commercial whaling Wednesday by handing the Government of Iceland a formal protest, called a demarche.”

  8. I forgot to mention too –  as you’ll notice if you read the second linked article there, Australia is one of the countries that has signed the formal protest against Iceland. Good one Australia!
