****URGENT CALL TO SAVE TIGRESS’ LIFE****The Iranian Health Ministry has ordered the LIFE of Olesya be TERMINATED. Olesya is a 6 year old Amur (Siberian) Tigress being held underground in isolation at Tehran’s Eram Zoo over the past FIVE YEARS.
The order to kill this young tigress is based ONLY on the “THOUGHT” that Olesya is infected with glanders (Burkholderia mallei) as her prospective partner had died of it in 2012.
The previous CF test used to detect exposure of an animal to the agent of glanders, which is the mandatory OIE recommended test for equids, has been validated for equids exclusively but not for tigers. It means that any CFT result from a tiger should be interpreted with extreme caution.
However, the fact that the tigress was in contact with an animal clinically sick of glanders (lab confirmed) and presented a CFT positive test suggests, and “ONLY SUGGESTS”, that Olesya has been exposed to glanders in 2012.
In addition, the previous test that the Iranian Health Ministry emphasize on, indicates the tests were conducted on 12 tigers, but that is untrue as there were only 2 tigers in Iran.
The Iranian Health Ministry, for the past 5 years refuse additional blood analysis on Olesya to validate the presence of the disease. Olesya’s life will be terminated, based their assumption.
Olesya has shown NO signs of any illness, at any time. If the tigress was infected (as thought), she would have perished MANY YEARS ago. And yet, OLESYA and her FATE, remain HIDDEN from the WORLD.
Seeking the Iranian Department of Environment, Iran Veterinary Organization and Iranian Ministry of Health and Medical Education AGREE to obtain/perform current blood analysis for confirmation.

Սիրելի բարեկամներ, 2015 թ. մարտի 13-ին, աշխարհի շատ մարդիկ միանում են Հանուն առյուծների գլոբալ արշավին՝ Հարավային Աֆրիկայում իրականացվող առյուծների որսի առնչյությամբ իրազեկվածությունը բարձրացնելու նպատակով: «Trophy» և «canned» որսաձևերը լայն տարածում են գտել Աֆրիկայում: Առաջինի դեպքում նպատակը կենդանուն որպես որսավար սպանելն է, երկրորդ դեպքում առյուծներին բազմացնում են հատուկ արգելավայրերում և հետո որսում ու սպանում նրանց:
Առյուծները իմ կյանքում շատ կարևոր են, ու ես այնքան եմ սիրում նրանց, որ մի ամբողջ գիրք եմ գրել նրանց մասին: Իմ շատ հոդվածներ ու հրապարակումներ նվիրված են առյուծներին, քանի որ հաճախ եմ հոդվածներ գրում նրանց մասին: Հատուկ բլոգ կատեգորիա ունեմ՝ նույնպես հանուն նրանց: Իմ բոլոր ջանքերը ուղղված են առյուծների և ընդհանրապես բնության պահպանությանը: Այդ է պատճառը, որ չէի կարող անտեսել այս կարևոր և յուրօրինակ արշավը հանուն առյուծների պահպանության և պատիվ ունեմ աջակցելու դրան, լուսաբանելով այն և փորձելով բարձրացնել իրազեկվածությունը այս հարցի շուրջ: Դեռ 2014 թվականից միացել եմ այս արշավին ու այս տարի նույնպես իմ ջանքերը ուղղված են այս…

Via – Walking For Lions
Will you take a moment and really watch this short clip? Really stop and think about it?
Sometimes especially on Social Medias, we get caught up on the Lions that are given names. We see them appear on here on a reg. basis ~ captured on camera in stunning images to the point where one forgets what really is happening out there.
Happening out there with the lions We don’t hear about, the Lions in areas that are struggling harder perhaps….The Lions with no names. The “Unknown Lions”…
We ALL need to stop and think about the difficult lives they live, the conflicts …the reality.
People like Walking For Lions are trying so hard to ensure a Future for these Lions, but they need help and they need Support to keep doing this…
Please sit and watch and really listen, and then ask yourself. Do you want these Lions to have a Future???? Are you doing your part in helping???? Just ask yourself. Do you know how even a small donation could help…………………..Greatcatsofthe”World”

Indo-Bangla boat ride to save Sunderbans
In what could add a new chapter to bilateral equations between the sub-continental neighbours, a team of policy makers and scientists from India and Bangladesh would set out on a unique three-day boat ride from Kolkata to Khulna in Bangladesh via the Sunderbans.
Over the three-day jaunt, they would discuss and debate on ways to save the delta and develop a future roadmap for its survival.
The boat ride would kick off from Millennium Park on March 16. They would sail along the Hooghly and reach Sunderbans before crossing the Raimangal River to enter Bangladesh. Once there, they would set sail for Khulna.
Scientists and environment activists working in the Sunderbans have been claiming that collaboration between India and Bangladesh is a must to saving the delta. They believe a joint effort of this kind would also help flag the issue of survival of the delta at the international level.
The world’s largest mangrove forest and home to the endangered Royal Bengal tiger, Sunderbans draws visitors from across the globe round the year. It is also said to be the saviour of Kolkata as the mangrove absorbs most of the fury of storms before they hit the city. More than two-thirds of the forest lies in Bangladesh and the rest in Bengal.
The unique workshop is being organised jointly by two leading world organisations on nature and wildlife conservation-WWFIndia and IUCN-Bangladesh. Biman Banerjee, speaker of the state assembly, is to lead the contingent and MLAs and ministers from India.
“We are planning to accommodate at least four ministers and four scientists from each of the two countries. Workshops and sensitisation programmes would be held on board the vessel for three days. The boat is expected to reach Khulna on the night of March 19,” Anurag Danda, head of the Sunderbans chapter of WWF-India, said.
The objective is to find out a future roadmap and get some form of commitment from the policymakers on the efforts that could be taken to save the delta from ruin. Till date, there has been no concrete plan to address the issues threatening the Sunderbans.
As the delta straddles the two countries and majority of it falls in Bangladesh, any effort that doesn’t involve cooperation between the neighbours is bound to fail. Several such issues as river pollution, climate change, population pressure and conservation of wildlife could be best addressed by way of a collaborative effort, experts said.
Though a similar effort had been undertaken four years back, the boat didn’t cross the international riverine border and came back to Kolkata after reaching the Sunderbans.
During a discussion at state assembly earlier this year, the MLAs from the Sunderbans region debated on ways to save the delta.
“If the issue of saving the Sunderbans needs to be raised at the international level, then the two neighbors have to come together. This effort can set the ball rolling,” Tapas Paul, senior environment specialist at World Bank, said.
