CITES CoP18 Press release n°1

The 18th meeting of the Conference of the 184 Parties (CoP) to the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora – CITES – is meeting in Geneva from 17 to 28 August 2019. Robin des Bois (Robin Hood), the Paris based NGO, has been an observer at CITES for 30 years. This conference was scheduled to be held in Colombo in May-June 2019. It was postponed and then moved to Switzerland due to the April 21 attacks in Sri Lanka.
Will CITES prove that it is competent to coordinate the international cooperation against environmental crime and resist the siren song of the wildlife extinction capitalism?
Will CITES Parties finally recognize that wild animals are No Border and that species such as giraffes and elephants should have the right to move across political and administrative boundaries?

Trash cows

18 Feb 2019

All the studies agree. Cows grazing grass, eating hay and corn silage swallow metal and plastic waste. These ingestions cause tumors, infections, fatal diseases.

In France, Interbev (Interprofessional Livestock and Meat) estimates that 60,000 large bovines suffer from tumours and infections caused by the accumulation of waste in their rumens. These 60,000 victims have been partially or totally seized from slaughterhouses and in the later case, the meat was not at all marketed. It is likely that the number of cows affected by this “waste disease” is higher than the official figure, and that deaths before arrival at the slaughterhouse are not quantified. The symptoms of “waste disease” are not specific and can be misattributed by farmers and veterinarians to other maladies.
