Global Buddhist Congregation endorses global declaration on environment preserva

Buddhist scholars and environment conservationists today endorsed a global declaration to apply Buddhist principles in societal, consumer and political decision-making frameworks to address the current environmental crisis.

In recent years, there is a growing tendency for humans to influence environmental and conservation decisions for short-term gains. Indiscriminate developmental activities have drastically modified the environment, causing negative implications to life on earth.

Endangered gibbons translocated to safety in India

A rescue operation to save an isolated group of endangered Hoolock gibbons began on Sunday in the remote village of Dello in northeast India. Stranded in small clusters of trees, the gibbons are some of the last apes found in India. The first two individuals were successfully translocated and released into a safe habitat in Mehao Wildlife Sanctuary, yesterday.

Overview:

Based on historical and anecdotal data, it has been a long-standing belief in marine mammal science that a single-stranded social dolphin could not survive being released on its own; thus it was recommended that the animal be humanely euthanized.
