BYCATCH, in the fishing industry, is a fish or other marine species that is caught unintentionally while catching certain target species and target sizes of fish, crabs etc. Those that are not desired for their meat, are simply returned lifeless to the ocean.

Studying the fishing industry's wasteful and unsustainable methods, scientists predict the oceans will be devoid of fish by 2048!

When this orphaned baby chimp arrived at a sanctuary, he was so terrified that he wouldn't let anyone touch him. Then he met a friend who changed EVERYTHING.

It's easy to claim the animal's participation is voluntary when they don't have a voice to say otherwise.

Just received this video from a follower via our FB page Animal Instincts.
This dog has been seen running alongside every train at KANJURMARG station (MUMBAI). She goes near the ladies compartment of every train in search of someone. I guess she is either lost or abandoned.
Hopefully someone might recognise her and come to pick her up. Everyone deserves to be with a family.
Please share. Please tag your friends & family. 🙏🏼thank you.

Some of the world's most important forests, containing critical elephant habitat, continue to fall for palm oil linked to McDonald's french fries, PepsiCo snacks and other major brands.
A reminder to cut out products with #palmoil and continue to boycott companies like PepsiCo that are not moving fast enough to solve this problem! They have made more money than we can imagine at the expense of #orangutans, #elephants, #tigers, #rhinos and more. #PalmsOffPalmOil 🤚

Breaking! A man was shot last night during what is being called a “hunting accident” in Alexander County, North Carolina.-
According to WBTV, 26-year-old Michael Marsh was reportedly hunting coyotes and using an electronic coyote call yesterday at approximately 6:00 PM when he was shot by a neighbor, also a hunter, who heard the sound.-
Once the neighbor realized he shot Marsh, he called 911 and told deputies that he “heard coyotes screaming in the area, and fired two shots at the brown and gray movement he saw near a tree.” -
If hunting did not occur, which it shouldn’t, neither would these types of “accidents.”-

After a dramatic escape from a van bound for a Polish slaughterhouse, a cow has found safety living alone on an island.

The animal was one of many being herded from a farm shed onto a cattle truck in southern Poland in January. Perhaps sensing that the drive wouldn't end well for her, the cow rammed a metal fence and took off.

The cattle owner, whom Polish media have identified only as Mr Lukasz, tried to force the cow back onto the farm, but she wasn't having it. Instead of giving up, she broke a farmworker's arm and made a run for the nearby Lake Nysa.

Polish current affairs show Wiadomosci reports the cow was seen diving underwater and swimming to one of the islands in the middle of the lake, where she has stayed for the past three weeks.

Mr Lukasz tried in vain to retrieve the animal. Firefighters used a boat to get to the island, but the cow simply swam away to a neighbouring peninsula.

The cattle owner was reluctant to shoot the cow because it would mean losing money. After several days, he gave up trying to retrieve her and has reportedly been delivering food to the island for the cow to stay alive.

Polish politician Pawel Kukiz posted to Facebook about his desire to save the cow and have her transported to a safe place to live out her days in peace.
A local political leader has reportedly said the cow will not be killed.

Two leopards found yesterday in the forests of Palampur in India’s northern state of Himachal Pradesh became the latest victims to fall prey to greedy poachers.-
The young leopards, protected under Schedule I of the Wildlife Protection Act, were found entangled in wire traps laid by yet-to-be-identified poachers.-
Tragically, one died at the scene while the other, who was severely injured, passed away after being transferred to a local zoo for care.-
As forest officials continued to scan the forest area for more wire traps, The Forest Department registered a First Information Report (FIR) with local police.- 💔🐆🐆💔-

DALY CITY, Calif. – A heartbreaking recovery unfolded at #ThorntonStateBeach Monday after a 67-year-old man fell down a 500-foot cliff while he was trying to rescue his dog. CBS San Francisco reports the #GoldenGateNationalPark ranger said the man's dog got away from him, and when he tried to go after it he slipped to his death. Long after the fatal fall, the man's dog continued pacing and barking on a perch, as is if to sense something was wrong. "The dog knows if you are hurt and sometimes with the cliff they get overstimulated and don't know all the facts," says dog walker Kyle Moreno.

This is a popular area for dog walkers. Tedd Leblanc of Daly City and his friends were out hiking Monday. He says the terrain is steep. "Sometimes things can move around. You gotta be careful. Always be on alert because rocks can tumble"

Rescuers airlifted the man's body from the bottom of the cliff. Later they helped the dog get back up the steep cliff and gave it to the victim's family.

Park rangers say there are no leash laws in place, but advise dogwalkers to put their animals on a leash or make sure they respond to voice control.

The area is home to beautiful scenic trails but it is very steep.-cbs #rip

For the first time ever, scientists in Antarctica have attached a camera to a minke whale and captured remarkable evidence of how it feeds. The camera – one of three “whale cams” funded by WWF-Australia – was secured to the whale’s body using a non-invasive suction cup that is designed to fall off after 24-48 hours. The footage from this whale cam will help scientists better protect whale feeding areas.


Cameroon’s Defence Minister, Joseph Beti Assomo said on Monday that poachers killed six soldiers and two guides. The soldiers were attacked while out on patrol in a wildlife park in the northern region of the country. “Six members of the defence forces and two civilian guides were killed on Thursday during a clash with heavily-armed men on horseback in Bouba Ndjida national park in the north of the country,” Beti Assomo said in a statement aired on state radio.

In 2012, 128 elephants were killed in the Bouba Ndjida Park within two months, according to the government. The Worldwide Fund for Nature (WWF) put the figure at 480, AFP reports.

The WWF attributed that massacre to poachers from Sudan and Chad.

After the 2012 attack, the government deployed troops in the wildlife reserve to help deal with the threat from poachers.

Poaching has killed an estimated 110,000 elephants over the last decade, with transnational organised crime syndicates taking over the illicit trade, the report said.

Despite a decline in poaching 2016 figures show that the global trade in illegal ivory continues.

According to the Great Elephant Census in 2016, the first ever pan-African survey of savanna elephants, numbers are estimated to have fallen to 352,000, down from 1.3 million in 1979.

When celebrities ride elephants they make people think it’s ok. That the elephants enjoy the experience. Wild elephants won’t let humans ride on top of them. So in order to tame a wild elephant, it is tortured as a baby to completely break its spirit. The process is called Phajaan, or “the crush”. It involves ripping baby elephants away from their mothers and confining them in a very small space, like a cage or hole in the ground where they’re unable to move. The baby elephants are then beaten into submission with clubs, pierced with sharp bull-hooks, and simultaneously starved and deprived of sleep for many days.
