Take the chance!
It was amazing – I did it last year.
3 days of cleaning with some polar bear and walrus watching tucked in between. The crazier people went for a swim in the sea!

We’ve put together another Cleaning the Shores of Spitsbergen, Polar Bear Adventure after the great success of 2015. This particular Arctic cruise is something really special – a polar bear special combined with the chance to leave the Arctic a little better than how you found it.

China: Why the market for commercially bred tiger parts may only get bigger

Right now in China, thousands of tigers, more than are alive in the wild, are sitting in cages, waiting for the day that their bones are turned into wine and their skin is turned into rugs. In fact, for over two decades, the tiger “farming” industry in China has been quietly ballooning, and it’s about to get a lot more legitimate.

On Friday, The Washington Post reported that a draft amendment to China’s wildlife protection law would make it legal to breed captive endangered animals. Previously, such farms were unregulated and operated largely outside the law. The new policy will allow the government to track them—but will also legalize and legitimize their activities.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

The law, which was publicized on January 1 and is currently under review, would apply to captive tigers who are kept as performers, as well as tigers bred to be harvested for their valuable body parts.

Besides threatening a major blow to conservation efforts, the proposed policy is a reminder that a massive market for the disembodied parts of rare wildlife continues to thrive—a market that has only grown in recent years.

... With the country’s population of captive tigers jumping from about 20 in 1986 to some 5,000 today, the tiger part trade has been called “industrial-scale” in the past. As of 2013, there were already about 200 documented tiger farms in China, according to a report by the nonprofit Environmental Investigation Agency.

While tiger eyeballs, genitals, teeth and whiskers are sometimes used for their purported medicinal properties—as a treatment for problems ranging from alcoholism to epilepsy—tiger bone is where the real money's at. The pricey bones are steeped in rice wine to create a purported aphrodisiac that has been said to help ease ailments like arthritis, and is served as a status symbol at dinner parties and events.

For the rich people in China if you have one of those on your back it's a statement saying your a rich person like there buying up all the rang rover cars and anything else to look good to there other rich friends.
But very soon China will be going to slow down and crash so the world will all have a stock market crash.

By my friend that I met on the Svalbard cleaning cruise.
Love, love, love - such a beautiful article.
By Carol Devine, the one and only.
I went to Svalbard, Norway to help clean up trash at 80ªN where few humans go but where garbage accumulates. We discovered both astonishing beauty and footprints good and bad. On our ship I took along images of art and objects made from garbage.

In the last couple of days BBC, Forbes, Independent, Mashable, Telegraph, Time and Quartz among other media outlets have have written about Finland’s experiment with basic income on a national level. However, none of the articles uncover the reason why Finland can pull off such ambitious policies in an age where so many government are left powerless with even smallest of changes in the way society works. The bigger change is buried under the stre...
