"Say NO to Permits to Kill Bald Eagles"

Petition link: http://www.thepetitionsite.com/886/120/ ... ld-eagles/

"The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, a division of the Interior Department, is considering loosening regulations on the killing of bald eagles, the national bird of the United States, to accommodate the development of wind energy sources. Additionally, The National Rifle Association took legal action to block the EPA from protecting wildlife and people from toxic lead ammunition. Millions of birds are needlessly poisoned every year by toxic lead ammo left in the wild, including bald eagles.

Killing the bald eagle, after so much effort to resue it from complete extinction, ought to remain a federal crime. A green light and a permit to resume killing is based on poor science since the full effects of climate change still remain unaddressed for the Bald Eagle.

Lebanon has signed as the 50th country's international raptor protection agreement of the Bonn Convention. The "Administration Agreement on the Conservation of Migratory Birds of Prey in Africa and Eurasia" will provide executive raptors such as the critically endangered spotted eagle under special protection. For the birds on their train into winter quarters are threatened mainly on the crisis in the Middle East region by poachers and illegal shooting. Lebanon is located on the main migration route of the Lesser Spotted Eagle, but the losses are great not only here in eastern Turkey, Syria and Egypt the launch of an eagle in young men is still regarded as "heroic".

From the perspective of German Wildlife Foundation, the "Administrative Agreement on the Conservation of Migratory Birds of Prey in Africa and Eurasia" (MoU birds of prey) is a great opportunity for the protection of the spotted eagle along their migration route. Germany and the European Union are parties to the agreements already in 2011 at the 10th Conference of the Parties "Bonn Convention". The main objective of the MoU birds of prey is the coordination of actions for developing and securing a favorable conservation status of birds of prey in their area of ​​distribution. An important goal in the view of Spotted Eagle is the ratification of the Management Agreement by the countries along the migration routes.


The German Wildlife Foundation has repeatedly must draw attention by poachers losses of Lesser Spotted Eagles in recent years: 2007 Spotted Eagle "Warrior" was shot in Malta and had to be put in a Berlin animal hospital later. In 2009, shot down eight illegally collared male Lesser Spotted Eagles four, 2010, a spotted eagle was east of Ankara killed by shotgun shots. In addition to these losses, however, have become known the actual number is much higher: about 75 percent of all young birds die during their first winter campaign.

Fake News - Destruction of the Amazon rainforest
How blinded can a human being be? Or, how much do your own Fakenews misjudge the view of the world as it shows itself to all other people.
Brazil's President Jair Bolsonaro provides a real negative example of this.

Without further ado, he now declares to journalists the results of the space research agency (Inpe) of his own country, which he claims to be president, for humbug - just because the scientists prove, according to the British TV broadcaster BBC with photos of the probe from space, that farmers , Timber merchants and treasure hunters deforested the rainforest on the Amazon in the first half of July over 1,000 square kilometers.

This is a year-on-year increase (Bolsonaro was not yet President of South American Kandes) of a whopping 68 percent!

Nearly half a BILLION trees have been destroyed this year.

The Brazilian space research institute INPE reported more than 72,000 fires this year - more than since 2013 and 83 percent more than in the previous year.
Over the past seven days, around 6,000 fires have blazed across the Amazon rainforest, with around a quarter of fires taking place within protected territories, destroying important intact ecosystems.
