Sea Shepherd Global, providing a ship, fuel and crew, will spend the next several months conducting law enforcement patrols in Senegalese waters under the direction of the Government of Senegal to assist the Ministry of Fisheries, led by the Honorable Haidar El Ali, combat IUU Fishing. The campaign is mandated by the Honorable President Macky Sall.
Operation Sunu Gaal is opportunity for Sea Shepherd Global to unveil the addition of a fifth ship to the Sea Shepherd fleet - The Jairo Mora Sandoval, named after the 26 year-old Costa Rican activist brutally murdered in Costa Rica in May 2013 for protecting sea turtles from poachers.
For Sea Shepherd Founder Captain Paul Watson, the name of the ship holds a special meaning: “When I heard of the murder of 26 year-old Costa Rican sea-turtle conservationist Jairo Mora Sandoval, I was saddened beyond measure. And then I became angry. Angry because it happened despite Jairo expressing concerns for his safety to the police and the government. Angry because the government did not react, angry because we had to pressure the government to act and angry that the poachers continue to desecrate and plunder the nests of the turtles. I also vowed that the name Jairo Mora Sandoval would not be forgotten and towards this end I decided that we would name a vessel after Jairo. We have done so and now, The Jairo Mora Sandoval will begin anti-poaching operations off the coast of West Africa under the direction of the Government of Senegal.” “Intervening against illegal fishing in a West African country is critical work for Sea Shepherd Global,” says Lamya Essemlali, Campaign Coordinator and President of Sea Shepherd France. “It is the area of the world most targeted by illegal fishing. Most of the fish stolen from Africa ends up on the plates of much richer countries that otherwise applaud themselves for the crumbs of charity that they throw to African countries. Countries like Senegal do not need charity, but rather the kind of justice possible only through effective law enforcement patrolling.” #saveocean#ocean#africa#sea#ocean#ships
I find it difficult to believe that anyone can find this face ugly or mean. It’s easy to portray animals in a negative light especially if they can be made to look like the villain in documentaries and films. Truth is hyena are a critical component of the ecosystem and when they disappear from an area it should be great cause for concern as to the health of that system. Fortunately I have seen a positive change in people’s attitudes toward them. This can be attributed to positive stories in the press, on social media and documentaries. It goes to show the power of creating awareness. It plays an ever increasing role in conservation no matter how indirect or far removed it may seem.

This is the book cover of the Russian author and military adviser to Ethiopia Alexander Bulatovich during the reign of Menelik II, as spoted on the picture the title of the book is ''From Entoto to river Baro report on the journey in the south-western region of the Ethiopian Empire in 1896-1897". Alexander Bulatovich on this his book on page 58 he wrote about #Amhara people, what he see about the people wrote as it is in the following statement: ========================================== "If I allow my self a rather free comparison, this is how I would characterize the Amhara. He is talented and receptive, like a Frenchman. With his practicality, with the way he deals with those he has conquered and his governmental abilities, he is like an Englishman. His pride is like that of a Spaniard. By his love for his faith, his mildness of character and tolerance, he is like a Russian. By his commercial abilities, he is like a Jew. But in addition to all these characteristics, he is very brave, cunning, and suspicious". #amhara#amharapeople#menelikii#ethiopia#africa#eastafrica#russia#alexanderbulatovich#italy#blackexcellence#proudamhara
