• Elephants Struggle to Survive in Drought-Stricken Mali

    For thousands of years, Mali's Lake Banzena, on the edge of the Sahara desert, has been home to Africa's most northerly elephant herd. And every year Mali desert elephants have adapted to drought conditions by walking about 1,000 km in a circular pattern, following rains in Mali and neighboring Burkina Faso. But the most severe drought conditions in a quarter century have dried up Banzena, one of the central water points on the elephants' migration cycle. By late May this year, the lake shrank to just a few pools of muddy water. Thousands of cattle, sheep and goats owned by nomadic Tuareg herdsmen all descend to the lake basin looking for water. The normal peaceful coexistence between the elephants and herdsmen is starting to break down.  And it's giving way to conflict...

    MANILA, Philippines -- A world-renowned elephant rehabilitator has joined the growing list of concerned individuals urging the transfer of an elderly elephant in the Manila Zoo to a sanctuary in Thailand. Dr. Dame Daphne Sheldrick, head of The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, said Mali should be allowed to live with other elephants to "heal her lonely soul." In a statement released by the animal rights group People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), Sheldrick said, "The most important thing in [an elephant's] life [are] friends and family, as it is for us humans." "To separate an elephant from others for life is immeasurably cruel and counter-productive to both the emotional and social well-being of the animal, with possible adverse physical damage as well," she added.

  • Poaching in northern Mali threatens rare elephant

    A rare population of elephants in northern Mali is being targeted by poachers, threatening its survival, a wildlife official has said. Authorities believe 19 Gourma elephants have been killed for their tusks in the past month. There are estimated to be just 350-500 of the group left. Poaching has been linked in the past to rebel groups in the region, who have connections to smuggling rings. The Gourma elephants migrate around 600km (370 miles) a year to feed. Because of the sparse vegetation in northern Mali they have a long-distance migration pattern that runs into Burkina Faso and Niger. On Tuesday, Colonel Soumana Timbo of the government's nature conservation division asked MPs to provide military support to protect the species. 'Total insecurity' Mr Timbo told the BBC that the sm...

By late May this year, the lake shrank to just a few pools of muddy water. Thousands of cattle, sheep and goats owned by nomadic Tuareg herdsmen all descend to the lake basin looking for water. The normal peaceful coexistence between the elephants and herdsmen is starting to break down.  And it's giving way to conflict over access to water. [Aboubar Ag Gerhir, Tuareg Herder]: "Usually we don't have any problems with the elephants, but with the drought the situation becomes more difficult, because all animals are thirsty, they come together at the same water pond and often the elephants chase the other animals." Wildlife experts say the elephants' migrating pattern has become more erratic since the drought has started to hit the herd, as the young elephants started to die. Older elephants are able to get on their knees and reach inside deeper water holes with their trunks. [El Mehdi Doumbia, Forestry Officer]: "This year there's no water. Most of the time elephants drank the stale water, mud really." The rainy season, which usually starts at the beginning of June, should bring some relief. [Jake Wall, Researcher, Save the Elephants]:English "Luckily last night we received a rain shower about 40-60 kilometers south of here and the elephants now left the lake, because there is nothing, and they've headed south and hopefully will find water, but it may be only a few days before they return." Groups including the NGO Save the Elephants have installed water pumps, along with some concrete drinking troughs, in an effort save the herd. But as temperatures in the region seem to heat up and marginal conditions like these grow intolerable, even venerable great beasts like the elephant could be on the way out.

"To separate an elephant from others for life is immeasurably cruel and counter-productive to both the emotional and social well-being of the animal, with possible adverse physical damage as well," she added. "I therefore appeal, on behalf of Elephant Mali, who cannot speak for herself, to afford her access to others, and in so doing heal her lonely soul." Sheldrick has been involved with elephants for the past 58 years. The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, named after her late husband, has rehabilitated more than 150 orphaned elephants. A sanctuary in Thailand has already agreed to accept Mali, who is suffering from foot ailments, loneliness, boredom and isolation in the Manila Zoo, according to PETA. Aside from Sheldrick, some of the individuals and groups who have expressed their support to the call to release Mali include wildlife conservationist Dr. Jane Goodall, Nobel Prize-winning author J.M. Coetzee, veterinarian Dr. Henry Melvyn Richardson, film legend Brigitte Bardot, former First Lady Imelda Marcos, singer-activist Morrissey, some members of Congress, and the Catholic Bishops Conference of the Philippines.

Monsters inside me! Deadly Human Parasite - Dracunculiasis also known as guinea worm disease is a deadly parasitic disease contracted by drinking water contaminated with the cyclop species of water fleas, that have ingested dracunculus larvae. The end of guinea worm disease is within reach, proclaims the carter center. Inside the body the larvae migrate through the intestinal wall and into the body tissue where they grow into adult worms. The males die off, and the females move through the subcutaenous tissue and exit the skin, usually at the feet growing up to 3 feet long, and be as thick as a spaghetti noodle. Does it sound painful? It is so painful infected people call it the fiery serpent. There is no vaccine to treat or prevent the disease, only behavioral modification and of course available clean water or the use of a filter if none is available. Once the worm begins to emerge through the skin, to extract it, someone begins to wrap it around a stick, a painful process that can take hours to months. The disease is usually not fatal, but a secondary infection or tetanus that is life threatening can occur around the wound if not treated with antibiotic ointments. At one time 20 nations in Asia and Africa were affected, but now the disease only affects humans in four countries in Africa with over 1,000 cases reported in the south Sudan Mali, Ethiopia and chad for the year 2011.

From the EYE of the Desert, to the most unique glass fragments from nowhere, these are 12 STRANGE Things Found in the Sahara Desert ! Subscribe to American Eye http://goo.gl/GBphkv 7. Gerboise Bleue Test Site France became the fourth nuclear powered nation after the USA, USSR and Great Britain. They were eager to test out their destruction device and decided to launch their first test in the Algerian Saharan Desert in 1960’s, with a bomb called the Gerboise bleue, near the Berber county of Reggane. We found the coordinates of the launch testing site and as we took a closer look to try to see the crater google earth, something appears to be cut and pasted of the area where it took place You can still see some of the discoloration of the sand from the original black and white photo that you see here.It you get somewhere close to the testing site by foot, you might come across a sighn like this, warning those who dare venture any further. The huge cloud of sand that was released from the atom bomb apparently spread radioactivity into neighboring countries and even into the south of France. Could the extreme heat from the blast, have created something similar to the Libyan desert glass? 6. Ghadames Located a few hundred miles from mediterranean sea, Ghadames is nicknamed, the pearl of the desert because of its pearl white apartment buildings.It was basically an abandoned city in the Sahara Desert for a long period of time when its source of water dried up. Located in the country of Libya. Ghadames was recently listed as a world heritage site and its origins date back to the 4th millennium BC. After miles and miles of endless desert, people must be thinking they’re seeing a mirage when they come across the revived date orchards. The Romans used it to stor e supplies and helped them secure north africa as part of their empire. Temperatures in this area have reached as high as 131 degrees fahrenheit. New housing was designed around the old city that can put up with the heat and it’s now home to about 10,000 residents. 5. Acacus Mountains This mountain range in the center of the Sahara, forms between the countries of Libya and Algeria. It’s here where you’ll find a large variation of strange dune and rock formations like the Rock arch in Tadrart. This is also where you would find the ancient rock art of the Sahara, or what’s left of it. The paintings depicted giraffes, elephants, ostriches and horses and date back to 12,000 BC. The UNESCO State of Conservation reported a large about of vandalism with sledge hammers that appeared to intentionally inflicted to damage the paintings and many of them were looted. This happened when the country was under a little bit of political chaos. 4. The Saharan Horned Viper By looking at photos, many might come to the conclusion the the Sahara is a lifeless wasteland. But this certainly isn’t the case and it’s home to a unique and somewhat creepy wildlife ecosystem. Possibly the most intimidating looking snake makes itself home in Northern Africa and it has horns coming out of its head, almost like the devil himself. These horns as actually protect their eyes while they’re slithering through the Sahara sands and are very aggressive. This nocturnal, carnivorous creatures feasts on things like rodents, birds and lizards. 3. Desert Breath What could this thing possibly be? A UFO landing site? No it’s actually an art installation in Eastern Egypt. The winds of the Sahara have somewhat eroded the spiral but that’s to be somewhat expected after 10 years. This was created by a group of Greek artists and it covers a space of about 25 acres. Roughly 8000 cubic meters of sand was dug out and there used to be a body of water 98 feet deep in the center but this quickly evaporated. The artists stated that it was meant to represent the infinity of the desert. Today it sort of represents a passage of time. 2. The City of Timbuktu Located on the southern edge of the Sahara in the country of Mali, is where you’ll find the historical city of Timbuktu. It’s used in expressions, describing a really far away place but it does actually exist! Between the 12th and 14 century, this city thrived and was extremely wealthy from trading salt and ivory. This commodity was traded by large caravans of camels and it brought an enormous amount of wealth to the Malian Empire. They constructed immense fortifications around the city with a unique architecture that’s not still commonly seen today. 1.The Eye of the Sahara Hmm ok, i was told there was some kind of eye looking formation somewhere around here on google maps… Where is it? Oh! There it is! American Eye is presenting you the Saharan Eye, which is located in the country or Mauritania! This massive geological structure is in the shape of a nearly perfect circle with a 25 mile diameter! It’s so big, that Nasa used to use it as a reference point when they entered space! There are many theories on how it formed.

Mali has set up an anti-poaching brigade to target ivory trafficking networks that have devastated the country's elephant population. In the ranks are Dutch dogs with a nose for sniffing out illegal ivory. Poaching has been rampant in Mali since Tuareg rebels took control of the northern parts of the country in 2012.

A rare population of elephants in northern Mali is being targeted by poachers, threatening its survival, a wildlife official has said. Authorities believe 19 Gourma elephants have been killed for their tusks in the past month. There are estimated to be just 350-500 of the group left. Poaching has been linked in the past to rebel groups in the region, who have connections to smuggling rings. The Gourma elephants migrate around 600km (370 miles) a year to feed. Because of the sparse vegetation in northern Mali they have a long-distance migration pattern that runs into Burkina Faso and Niger. On Tuesday, Colonel Soumana Timbo of the government's nature conservation division asked MPs to provide military support to protect the species. 'Total insecurity' Mr Timbo told the BBC that the small number of rangers assigned to the region were already risking their lives. "In the Gourma zone there is total insecurity. We have about 10 rangers covering about 1.25 million hectares, so it's quite insufficient," Mr Timbo said. "If we send out two rangers on a motorbike they are risking their lives. So we really need joint patrols - military and rangers - and we need to focus all our efforts on stopping this massacre." Northern Mali has been a flashpoint of conflict since Mali's independence from French rule in 1960, with the Tuareg rebels campaigning for independence or more autonomy. The region has been further destabilised by the emergence of jihadi groups including al-Qaida in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM), which has targeted both the government and the rebels. In its own attempt to combat poaching, South Africa has appointed a panel of experts to examine the viability of a legal rhino horn trade, Levels of poaching have risen to record levels in South Africa. The country is thought to be home to around 20,000 rhinos, around 80% of the worldwide population. There were 1,215 rhinos killed in South Africa in 2014, a 21% increase on the previous year, officials say. The 21-member panel will examine whether a legal trade in rhino horn may reduce the number of animals targeted by poachers. "It is important to emphasise that South Africa has not taken a position on the issue and will not do so until the committee has completed its work and presented its findings," the environment ministry said in a statement.

What is up thrill seekers!? My friend Utah went to Mali in Africa and I asked him to film as much as possible while he was there. This is the product of that trip. // Monologue by Utah Mckern // Life is tidal. for everyday this planet has ever seen the tide has been rolling in or washing out. It doesn't matter where you are in the world what ocean you're on your tide will be rolling in or washing out. The secret to happiness is not to identify with where you are on the tide I've had as many good days living in a grass hut in Africa, as i have living in a penthouse on Bondi Beach. Two things in life are certain, just as the tide rolling in picks us up, we can be sure it'll wash out again. Its all coming to an end anyway and that is a liberating concept. It gives us the freedom to enjoy every minute without trying to control the ocean. We can be free to enjoy the swells the sun the surf and know that when our tide starts to turn that its only going to roll on in again. ------------------------------------------------ I'm Nicholas and I'm from Sydney, Australia.
