Take Action! » National Wildlife Refuge Association Stop a Border Fence from Cutting Through Santa Ana NWR!

Sonoran pronghorn | USFWSTake Action! » National Wildlife Refuge Association  President Trump is planning to make good on his campaign promise to beef up our border with Mexico, and his Administration plans to break ground at the Santa Ana National Wildlife Refuge in Texas. Apparently work has been ongoing on the refuge for several months, but nothing was said to the public, until information leaked late last week. The Administration has been working in secret, keeping the public in the dark about the plan to use taxpayer dollars to irreparably damage our public lands.

Border Agency Set to Jumpstart Trump’s Wall in a Texas Wildlife Refuge - ProPublica OUTRAGEOUS!!!  U.S. Customs and Border Protection will begin constructing the first segment of President Trump’s border wall in November through a national wildlife refuge, using money it’s already received from Congress. ($1.6 BILLION) That’s what a U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service official recently told a nonprofit group that raises money to support two national wildlife refuges in South Texas, according to the group’s vice president.  https://friendsofthewildlifecorridor.org/border-wall-in-south-texas-national-wildlife-refuges/

NAMES FOR PALM OIL - PALM OIL INVESTIGATIONS

NAMES FOR PALM OIL - PALM OIL INVESTIGATIONS
 
PictureMany food products have Palm Oil listed as 'vegetable oil' and in non food products there is at last count over 200 alternate names for palm oil. If an ingredient in the product you are researching has any one of the following names then it is 95% likely to be palm oil unless you know the company has a clear 'no palm oil' policy so on odd occasions these ingredients may also be derived from other sources. If the product you are checking has one of the ingredients below you may want to contact the company to find out it's derivation. Note: Palm Sugar is a different species of palm and is not palm oil.  Vegetable gum is not palm oil derived.

Five park rangers killed in DRC in tragic weekend for wildlife defenders | Environment | The Guardian

Five park rangers killed in DRC in tragic weekend for wildlife defenders | Environment | The Guardian An ambush by local rebel forces led to five deaths in the Okapi Wildlife Reserve, while another ranger died in Virunga.


Four Congolese park rangers and one porter have been killed in an ambush in the eastern Democratic Republic of the Congo. A large group of journalists and park rangers were attacked on Friday 14 July in the Okapi Wildlife Reserve by an armed local rebel group. It is believed that the journalists – one from the US, two Dutch, and one Congolese – were covering a story about the work of the rangers in the forest.
The attack is thought to have been by Mai Mai rebels from the area who have been carrying out illegal poaching and mining activities. They have previously come into conflict with rangers.


Following the attack, three rangers and the US national were reported missing, while the rest of the group, including 11 rangers, escaped to another Okapi reserve base.
The bodies of four Congolese rangers from the state park authority, the Institut Congolais pour la Conservation de la Nature (ICCN), and one porter were found the following day, on the evening of Saturday 15 July. They were killed during an ambush while escorting the journalists back from a visit to the Bapela gold mining site, Unesco confirmed.
