It is necessary to define whether a wild animal has the right to leave the forest and make damage to crops and agricultural land. Are individuals who have a concession of forests have a right to hunt the animals and sell the meat of wild animals? It should be noted that the crows threaten other small birds because they steal eggs from nests, attacking songbirds and small ducks. This can be controlled if you disable the excessive reproduction of crow. The crows have found homes on the branches of trees in the city as easily find food and water. Familiarize citizens with species that are protected, and the way that an individual can help regarding the protection of wildlife, including birds and fish in Europe.

Paris Agreement Closer to Entering Into Force after UNGA

This week's United Nations General Assembly brought us a step closer to a realising a universal action plan to tackle climate change. After #UNGA, 60 countries - which together represent 47.7% of global emissions - are now committed to the #ParisAgreement.

Do you know how the Paris Agreement works?

First, it's important to note how BIG a deal this was: last December at the #Paris climate conference [#COP21] 195 countries adopted the first-ever universal, legally binding global climate deal. That's historic.

We made the deal – now we have to make it real. This means #ratification. The Paris Agreement will enter into force once 55 countries – which represent at least 55% of global emissions – have deposited their instruments of ratification.

So we're nearly there! Now, all EU Member States' ratification is more important than ever - the fight against #climatechange starts at home.

Warum wurde mein KLIMAPROJEKT, mein schuldenfreies Unternehmen Göttinger Pferdeomnibus, mit 12 Pferden und 5 wertvollen, polnischen Kutschen und Pferdeomnibussen, teils mit Gasheizung und Behinderten-Mitnahme, im Gesamtwerte von 300.000 EURO vom deutschen Staat im Januar 2007 total Habe genommen und verhindert? Ich habe am Samstag, den 13. Januar 2007 um 13 Uhr auf der Strecke Göttingen-Hamburg in Hamburg-Harburg die Seitigkeit eines ICE, mit Hilfe meiner Wahrnehmungsgabe in den Eisenkern der Sonne und in den Weltraum, nach links gewechselt, damit Ihr uns Nachfahr/innen der Linkshänderin Maria und des Linkshänders Josef nicht weiter vermindern könnt, ohne die Zeichen des Todes zu werden. Wir sind die Wahrheit! Das Geld ist kein Zeichen des Lebens mehr! Tw.: @HabsburgMena

Change, though sometimes hard, has a beauty all of its own. People often think of autumn as a time of melancholy, when summer is over and winter approaches. We look on the bright side. We look forward to the homemade stews, the colour change of the trees, comfy scarves and the smell of wood fires… What do you look forward to? We hope the autumn season holds positive changes in store for you!

Thank you to Bart Burger for his picture of "Autumn in Europe".
Bart took this picture in Park Abbey in Leuven (Belgium).

No EC moderated TTIP talk, or else regarding "competition" dialog related! 
Please find a third part equidistant (EC vs citizens) to moderate that dialog.
Do you have courage enough to do that +European Commission in name of "good will" between YOU and us, the peoples ?

EU attends UN Summit on refugees and migrants and 71st United Nations General Assembly Ministerial week

Ahead of the #EU's participation in the UN Summit on refugees and migrants on 19 September, catch up on our #MigrationEU policies in a series of factsheets here: http://europa.eu/!cK46ym

Global action on migration is urgently needed. At the UN summit on large movements of refugees and migrants, where European Council President Tusk will speak, the EU will advocate for global shared responsibility and the need to move towards Global Compacts in the follow-up to the Summit.

Probably I was not clear enough +ioan dumitru . Why anyone expected that European countries, rich or poor, and of the inhabitants who are mostly poor to the extent that they can not be based family due to unemployment or to opt for the birth of more children, they need to be in solidarity. Everyone if wants to help , individually some help from his personal savings account. You can send volunteers, teachers, psychologists, missionaries, builders, anyone who is interested to go away and to help countries who expect help. But the inhabitants of these countries need to act in accordance with the possibilities, if you do not have the conditions for lifting large offspring, then you shall have no descendants. Will European women send their husbands, sons or brothers to liberate the territory that is occupied in the Third World and accept the young men which traveling with backpack and they looking for accommodation in Europe.

European companies are entitled to set up a branch in another EU country on the same terms as local firms.
A Polish start-up dealing with social media solutions took just 2 days to open a branch in London. Visit the Your Europe site for all the information you need: http://europa.eu/youreurope/business/start-grow/start-ups/index_en.htm

Did you know that you can check if a business is registered to trade cross-border within the EU with the EU's VIES (VAT Information Exchange System)?

Rental minibuses transport surfers along the Portuguese coast: the co-owner of the minibus firm is an Austrian, Stefan Koeppl. It was an EU exchange programme for young entrepreneurs that took him to Portugal.

Europe means peace - Of course we still have our differences. Yes, we often have controversy. Sometimes we fight. But we fight with words. And we settle our conflicts around the table, not in trenches.

+Alexander Stickler Jesus Christ are there people as naive as you out there? Do you seriously think these countries are going to not have their own armies?

Why don't we just elect an Emperor and build the Death Star?

European Agenda on Migration

In May 2015 we put forward the European Agenda on Migration: a series of steps to tackle the #refugeecrisis & help Europe manage migration together.

In little over a year, we adopted all #MigrationEU proposals: from saving lives at sea, to integration in EU Member States; from relocation and resettlement, to reform of the Common European Asylum System.

Find more about what action has taken place so far and what work lies ahead: http://ec.europa.eu/priorities/migration_en
