Cameroon elephant tragedy: The war is declared in Bouba Njida

Bouba Njida, March 5, 2012 - It is 9:10 a.m. and we're all packed. As we have been banned from flying over the park by the General of the Bataillon d’Intervention Rapide (BIR - Rapid Reaction Battalion) of the North Province, who threatened to take down our plane if we didn't comply, we choose to set off this morning. There are a number of us leaving the quietude of our Bouba Njida camp, where baboons and bushbucks have graced us with their presence every single night.

La guerre aux braconniers est déclarée à Bouba Njida

Bouba Njida, 5 mars 2012 : Il est 9h10. Nos bagages sont bouclés. Notre survol aérien du parc ayant été interdit par le Général du BIR (Bataillon d’Intervention Rapide) de la Province du Nord sous peine de voir notre avion abattu, nous prenons la décision de partir ce matin. Nous sommes plusieurs à quitter la quiétude du campement de Bouba Njida où babouins et guibs harnachés nous ont gratifiés de leur présence chaque soir durant.

Eléphants de Bouba Njida, je ne vous oublierai pas

Bouba Njida (3 et 4 mars 2012) : Je ne sais pas ce que je ressens, je ne trouve pas les mots…Peut-être n’existent-t-ils pas. Je suis comme anesthésiée. Suis-je en train de me protéger contre l’intolérable et l’inconcevable, pourtant si prévisible? Probablement.

The International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW) says that by setting a Total Allowable Catch of 400,000 harp seals, Canada’s Department of Fisheries and Oceans (DFO) not only ignores the lack of market for seal products but demonstrates a continued unwillingness to protect marine resources and live up to Canada’s international obligations for fisheries management.

Elephants of Bouba Njida, I will never forget you

Bouba Njida (March 3rd and 4th, 2012) - I don't know exactly what I feel, I can't find the words. They might not even exist. Or maybe I know: I feel numb. Am I trying to protect myself from the intolerable, the inconceivable, which is also so predictable? Probably.

VIDEO: Amazing footage of impromptu team of Brazilian dolphin stranding rescuers

This footage of the dolphin stranding in Brazil is amazing. 

This is a rare event for this area, unlike here on Cape Cod, MA in the U.S. where this is a much more common occurrence.
