As news breaks around the world from North Korea to Syria, events and issues that concern the wildlife of our planet fall from peoples minds and the medias agenda and this is understandable.
However, the creeping destruction of species and habitats worldwide remains unabated.
The recent lift of Rhino horn sale by South Africa https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2017/apr/06/south-africa-lifts-ban-on-domestic-rhino-horn-sales went largely unnoticed with seemingly the lessons from a similar lifting of a total ban on ivory trade leading to a dramatic increase in illegal poaching going unheeded.
It is “easy” to pay lip service and even make inroads to such issues as climate change, ecological destruction and species under threat in times of economic and political stability.
However, in a packed news agenda with mankind involved with Brexit, global migration, conflict in the Middle East and now possibly the Far East the state of the planet and the other species we share that planet with seem to go unnoticed.
