Artist Biography
Amy Lind received a BFA from the Savannah College of Art and Design and additional instruction from the Florence Academy of Art and the Bay Area Classical Artist Atelier. Her work has garnered many accolades, including honorable mentions in the prestigious Art Renewal Center's International Salon and the Portrait Society of America's Member's Only Competition. In addition to being named Southwest Art magazine's “Artist to Watch: the Editor's Choice for Up-and-Coming Talent”, her paintings have graced the cover of top national publications American Art Collector and Art Calendar. Lind's paintings can also be found published in the New York Times Bestselling children's book "Marcel the Shell With Shoes On: Things About Me".
Hailing from the Chicagoland area, Lind now calls Savannah, GA her home, and was recently aptly recognized as one of "100 Under 100 New Superstars of Southern Art" by The Oxford American magazine. On top of gallery work, she is sought out by many for her uncanny ability to capture the likeness and essence of those she paints while infusing each canvas with captivating qualities of light and color. Her work hangs in both public and private collections around the world.

Indian peafowl
India,Rajkot,12-8-2014.
Canon 6D ,Canon300MM.

The Indian peafowl or blue peafowl (Pavo cristatus), a large and brightly coloured bird, is a species of peafowl native to South Asia, but introduced in many other parts of the world like the United States, Mexico, Honduras, Colombia, Guyana, Suriname, Brazil, Uruguay, Argentina, South Africa, Madagascar, Mauritius, Réunion, Irian Jaya, Papua New Guinea and Australia. The species was first named and described by Linnaeus in 1758, and the name Pavo cristatus is still in use now.
The male peacock is predominantly blue with a fan-like crest of spatula-tipped wire-like feathers and is best known for the long train made up of elongated upper-tail covert feathers which bear colourful eyespots. These stiff feathers are raised into a fan and quivered in a display during courtship. Females lack the train, and have a greenish lower neck and duller brown plumage. The Indian peafowl lives mainly on the ground in open forest or on land under cultivation where they forage for berries, grains but also prey on snakes, lizards, and small rodents. Their loud calls make them easy to detect, and in forest areas often indicate the presence of a predator such as a tiger. They forage on the ground in small groups and usually try to escape on foot through undergrowth and avoid flying, though they fly into tall trees to roost.
The function of the peacock's elaborate train has been debated for over a century. In the 19th century, Charles Darwin found it a puzzle, hard to explain through ordinary natural selection. His later explanation, sexual selection, is widely but not universally accepted. In the 20th century, Amotz Zahavi argued that the train was a handicap, and that males were honestly signalling their fitness in proportion to the splendour of their trains. Despite extensive study, opinions remain divided on the mechanisms involved.
The bird is celebrated in Indian and Greek mythology and is the national bird of India. The Indian peafowl is listed as of Least Concern by the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN).[Wikipedia].

Mozambique lifts ban on logging despite corruption fears

The governor of the central Mozambican province of Sofala, Helena Taipo, has lifted the logging ban and authorized the resumption of logging following a closed-door meeting with timber operators, local chiefs and staff of the provincial forestry and wildlife department, the local media reported on Tuesday.

A staggering 93 percent of logging in 2015 in Mozambique, one of the world’s least-developed country was illegal, fuelled by poor law enforcement, endemic corruption, insufficient funding and incompetent leadership, according to the United Kingdom-based Environmental Investigation Agency.

------------------------------------------------------------------------
Do you want to learn more about crime and corruption in Mozambique's forests? Check out these EIA reports:

* First Class Connections: Log Smuggling, Illegal Logging and Corruption in Mozambique - http://eia-international.org/reports/first-class-connections

* First Class Crisis: China’s Criminal and Unsustainable Intervention in Mozambique’s Miombo Forests - http://eia-international.org/reports/first-class-crisis-chinas-criminal-and-unsustainable-intervention-in-mozambiques-miombo-forests
------------------------------------------------------------------------

Throughout Mozambique the logging season begins on 1 April and closes on 31 December. No logging is allowed in the first quarter of the year.

However, Taipo refused to allow the resumption of logging in April because of serious corruption in the forestry and wildlife department which she is trying to eliminate.

When Taipo met with the Association of Timber Operators, they requested that she urgently lift the ban on logging and she accepted.

Each licensed forestry operator must channel 20 percent of its income to the communities on whose land the forests are located.

The communities told Taipo they do not see any of this money, and blamed the operators.

According to Taipo, all of this crime and environmental mismanagement has robbed Mozambique’s rural poor and wider population of US$146 million in terms of lost taxes since 2007 and this includes a potential US$20 million that should have gone to rural communities under the forest regulations.

Legitimate timber operators accepted that Taipo’s drive was well-intentioned, but pointed out that they might be driven into bankruptcy if they are unable to work.

75% of Hong Kong citizens polled support ban on ivory sales

Animal conservation groups stepped up their campaign to end the ivory trade in Hong Kong this week by releasing the results of a survey that found that most respondents favored a comprehensive ban on the sale of ivory.

The poll of 1,021 adults, conducted by the University of Hong Kong’s Public Opinion Program and commissioned by WildAid, the African Wildlife Foundation and Save the Elephants, found that 75 percent of respondents supported a ban on selling ivory in Hong Kong. In addition, 91 percent said they did not own any ivory or products made from ivory, and 82 percent said they did not know anyone else who did. The margin of sampling error in the survey was plus or minus three percentage points.

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

Despite the unpopularity of ivory among local residents, Hong Kong — a semiautonomous Chinese region with separate customs controls — remains a major market and transit point for ivory. Much of the ivory is illegal, with most of the demand coming from the Chinese mainland.

"The climb, Rue de la Côte-du-Jalet, Pontoise" "Chemin montant, rue de la Côte-du-Jalet, Pontoise" (1875)
By Camille Pissarro, French Artist (1830-1903)

"In 1873 Pissarro settled in Pontoise, a town northwest of Paris. He particularly favored painting the adjoining valley village of L’Hermitage, which offered the artist a mix of geometric and organic shapes: new homes squarely built of white stucco, with angular pitched roofs, nestled among dense foliage. For this painting, Pissarro positioned himself halfway up a winding footpath and selected a downward view of the hamlet through the trees. 
The work demonstrates a broad array of painting techniques, from sure, singular touches for distant windows and doors to thick palette-knife applications for the foreground greenery. Despite the variety of surface textures, Pissarro unifies the composition tonally: the whites and creams of the architecture appear in the tree trunks and well-trodden path, while the cool blues and warm ochers of the roofs bleed through the green foliage."

Australian Ringneck & Strelitzia

"What time do we have to leave?"
"About 8:30am.  Why?"
"Is Matthew ready?"
"Yes, he is.  Why?"
"I'm not!  But I am getting ready!"

That was the short "discussion" Nic and I had about me getting ready to go out.  I was going to get ready, but I made the "mistake" of looking out through the garage door.  Ringnecks!  A pair!  In the Strelitzia!  Oh!  I didn't know they would do that!  But they do.  This bloom was beautiful.  In about 30 seconds it was a shadow of it's former self.  I was watching this one tear away at the flower and made a few images, while its mate was busy tearing away at the other blooms.  I was broken away from this with,

"Are you outside?"
"Argh...yes."
"Are you ready?"
"Not quite!"

This was then greeted with Matthew and Nic looking at me, standing outside with my camera and smiling.  Lucky I have such an understanding family!  And no, we weren't late!  8-))

Parco nazionale Alberto De Agostini

Situato nella parte Cilena della Terra del Fuoco; ricopre una superficie di 14.600 km² e include al suo interno la catena montuosa della Cordillera Darwin. Il nome è un omaggio al missionario italiano Alberto Maria De Agostini, che ne esplorò a lungo i territori.
In esso sono presenti numerosi ghiacciai costieri e profondi fiordi. Il parco si presenta come una grande area di riserva naturale, e non comprende al suo interno strade, centri abitati o infrastrutture. Non esiste quindi luogo dove alloggiare, se non nelle città più prossime, vale a dire Punta Arenas e Puerto Williams. L'area dove si trova il parco, è stata recentemente classificata come una delle più incontaminate del pianeta a causa del suo isolamento a seguito della deriva dei continenti. Amministrativamente, il suo territorio si estende su tre province cilene: Magallanes, Tierra del Fuego e Antartica Cilena.  Insieme con il vicino parco nazionale Capo Horn è stato designato riserva della biosfera nel 2005 dall'UNESCO, con il nome di riserva della biosfera Capo Horn.

Mozambique: Rhino horn and ivory allegedly go missing from police warehouse in Maputo

On the 14th of May a ton and a half of elephant tusks and rhino horns were seized by the Mozambican police in Matola. It is believed that 235 animals must have been slaughtered: 170 elephants and 65 rhinos. A Chinese man was arrested but police have yet to reveal his identity.

Namibian investigative journalist, John Grobler, had this to say on his Facebook page, “Just got word that the massive haul of 65 rhino horn and 340 ivory tusks have disappeared from the Police Commander’s warehouse in Maputo.

[That was the] same warehouse where I got bust 23 years ago photographing soldiers off-loading RENAMO ivory into what I was told was former President, Armando Gbeuza’s warehouse. [It] cost me a few days in jail and everything I owned in Maputo before a friend could bribe me out of there.

It is not the first time this happens: ivory and rhino horns keep disappearing from official custody in Mozambique, which tells you that the government itself is involved in the ongoing plunder of their own and their neighbour’s natural resources.

It is time Mozambique gets exposed for the role they play in this and FRELIMO’s rotten officials placed under international sanctions. Because this is, like crime everywhere in countries led by former liberation movements, coming out of the ruling party’s inner-most circles.”

A report on Verdade.com says that the horns and ivory was stolen from the premises of the Police Provincial Command in the early hours of Friday, the 22nd of May from a place that was locked with three padlocks whose keys were entrusted to the same number of people.

Ban Ki-moon backs HFC reductions as essential to fighting climate change

SWITZERLAND: United Nations secretary general Ban Ki-moon has backed efforts to reduce HFC emissions, describing action as being essential to combat climate change.

Speaking at the opening of an assembly of the Climate and Clean Air Coalition (CCAC) in Geneva last week, Ban Ki-moon said: “Steps to address short-lived climate pollutants are now seen as an essential complement of the aggressive mitigation actions needed to combat climate change.”

“These efforts will protect the climate, our environment and improve the health and lives of people across the globe,” he added.

The CCAC High Level Assembly took place on the margins of the 68th World Health Assembly to bring attention to the links between air pollution, human health and climate change. Tine Sundtoft, Norway’s minister for climate and environment and co-chair of the Assembly, said that reducing short-lived climate pollutants (SLCPs), like black carbon, methane, tropospheric ozone and HFCs, provided multiple benefits for health and climate.
