Das EU-Parlament beschloss heute, dass für die Ölsuche mit Unterwasser-Sonar in Zukunft Umweltverträglichkeitspüfungen durchgeführt werden müssen. Damit soll der Unterwasserlärm reduziert werden, der für viele Meeresbewohner eine Gefahr darstellt. 

„Dies ist eine dringend notwendige Entscheidung. Die Öl-Exploration mit Sonar in europäischen Gewässern nimmt zu und bedroht immer stärker gerade die Meeressäuger“, so Dr. Ralf Sonntag, Meeresbiologe des IFAW-Deutschland.

Oklahoma zoo tiger mauls employee's arm
Summary: 

Doctors were able to save the arm of an Oklahoma zoo worker after a tiger bit it Saturday, according to the zoo's Facebook page. "She has a long road of repairs ahead of her but this is a miracle," the post said. The unidentified employee, whose name was not released, was taken to a hospital and was in stable condition after surgery, said Undersheriff Jim Mullett of Garvin County, about 40 miles south of Oklahoma City. She was awake and speaking on the phone later Saturday, the zoo said.

In the wake of yet another mauling at a private roadside zoo, dangerous incidents involving big cats continue to rise across the United States.  The Big Cats and Public Safety Protection Act (H.R. 1998/S.1381), a Congressional bill initiated by the International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW - www.ifaw.org), would prohibit the private possession and breeding of tigers, lions and other big cats in the United States; and, according to a new poll released today by IFAW, 75 percent of voters across the country are in support of the bill.
