This is something that i think everyone should watch, Chef and TV Star Gordon Ramsay when around the world to document the consumption of Sharksfin and tries to stop people from eating shark fin soup by showing them where the fins come from and the damage it is doing to the shark population.
The video has images of how the sharks are caught, the fins are chopped off and the shark is thrown back to sea. Its crazy, it will give you a presective of what really happens and i hope that you do not consume sharks fin and please share this with as many people as you can.
When the demand stops, the supply stops!

The world economy is the first example. Spending more than you have kills you and pulls pretty much everyone else around you since you are a super power. Now this? Well America, i sure hope you become more sensitive to the rest of the world , we share this planet and if you decide to destroy it, we go down with you as well.
World leaders better pay attention to these details, intangible but its the outcome can be detrimental

Hurricane Irene has been leaving a trail of destruction, here are some images to give you a idea of the damage. Imagine knowing that destruction is around the corner and you just have to wait for it to come sweep away your life’s work.
We hear about animal abuse so much and its good to know of the different kind of abuses that happen around the world. Its like piracy as well, when there is a demand, there will be a supply so be aware of the products that you use or consume and try to make a effort to not be a contributor to elements that promotes or gives the culptis a reason to go on with their business.
Stuff like Orangutan being made prostitutes is shocking but there is much more happening and we should be aware of this so that we can put pressure to stop it!
Below are facts that are very America centric but its good to know
- In many circuses, wild and exotic animals are trained through the use of intimidation and physical abuse. Former circus employees have reported seeing animals beaten, whipped, poked with sharp objects and even burned to force them to learn their routines
Saleng Zoo is located beside the Johor Zoo. It is home to several species of animals and some of them are rare like the Tapir and the Bengal Tigers.
I read this shocking article about the rubbish that goes on in this Zoo and i think its about time the authorities shut down this zoo once and for all. The article on the WWF-Malaysia website gave me the insight into the poor dead wildlife that was found, possesion of wildlife without permits and the way the animals are used makes me furious!
If the Zoo does not have permits for the wildlife and they even use the wildlife as show pieces in “roadshows”, it makes me wonder what else is going on in this Zoo?
Here’s the big one, PERHILITAN discovered 21 dead tiger cubs in its freezer in 2008!
Other offences :
Zoo’s other previous offences is possession of wildlife without permits including a baby elephant, two slow lorises, a Tomistoma and a number of pythons and storks which were seized by PERHILITAN in various raids. The zoo owner also claimed in an interview in December 2008 that PERHILITAN has seized more than 20 animals from his zoo in the past six to seven years.
Pure madness! While Perhilitian is doing a good job in raiding the zoo’s and the NGO’s like MyCat and WWF-Malaysia are exposing such wrong doing’s, the ones with the real power should step up the legal system that controls these guys and they should face very heavy fines or even shut them down when they cross the line!
I hope that this Zoo gets shut down and act as a example to the other Zoo’s.
