Scientists given go-ahead to create human-animal embryos
  • Report errors or inaccuracies: userhelp@guardian.co.uk
  • Letters for publication should be sent to: letters@guardian.co.uk
Britain's first cloned embryo created by Newcastle Uni team

Stem cells will be extracted from the embryos with a view to developing new treatments for diseases such as Parkinson's and spinal cord injury (Photo: AFP)

British scientists will try to create human-animal embryos for the first time this year after receiving the go-ahead from the government's fertility regulator yesterday.

The Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority said it had offered year-long licences to two teams of scientists who hope to use the embryos to study stem cells, the body's master cells that have the potential to form any tissue or organ.

The decision ends 12 months of delay during which the HFEA has sought to clarify whether the creation of embryos by fusing animal and human tissues is legal and scientifically justified.

Leading scientists, including the government's former chief science adviser Sir David King, gave their backing to the research, but anti-abortion and religious groups launched a fervent campaign against the proposals, claiming that the research would undermine human dignity and blur the boundary between humans and other species.

Revolutionary therapies

Scientists at Newcastle University and King's College London want to create hybrid embryos by merging human cells with cow or rabbit eggs, in the hope that they will be able to extract valuable embryonic stem cells from them. The cells are expected to lead to revolutionary therapies for diseases such as Alzheimer's, Parkinson's and even spinal cord injuries.

By using animal eggs, scientists claim they will be able to push ahead with their research unhindered by the shortage of human eggs. Under existing laws, the embryos must be destroyed after 14 days when they are no bigger than a pinhead, and cannot be implanted into the womb.

In a statement, the authority said its licensing committee had "determined that the two applications satisfied all the requirements of the law".

Lyle Armstrong, who heads the Newcastle team, welcomed the decision. "Now that we have the licence we can start work as soon as possible. We have already done a lot of the work by transferring animal cells into cow eggs, so we hope to make rapid progress."

Sir Richard Gardner, chairman of the Royal Society's stem cell working group, added: "This is the right decision by the HFEA and it will maintain the UK's position as an innovator and world leader in stem cell research."

TIGER PROTECTION AND CONSERVATION UNITS 9:48 AM

This is about Giles Clark. Miles Clark has a passion for saving these magnificent animals, he's been tracking them for the past 10 years through Asian forests with aching muscles,stifling humidity and sweat drenchedbut what he sees is well worth itug marks of a tigress. He feels he is honored to be a guest in her territory. He was on a 6 day quest with the Tiger Protection and Conservation Unit in Kerinci Seblat National Park.

Tiger Protection and Conservation Units keep track of illegal activities such as poaching ,logging and illegal settlements in and around the national park. Their main goal is to stop all illegal activity including the removal of snares.

These patrols carry heavy equipment and cover several miles a day and the territory is extremly tough.Some of these men and women put their lives at risk arresting some fo the toughest poachers in the wildlife trade, some even go under cover.

Many still were working after the great Sumatran earthquake where many of them suffered great personal loss but still managed to arrest two poachers. These men and women are try wildlife warriors.

KSNP is an enormous park about 3,000 acres it's one of the largest protected parks so vehicles must be tough,though enough to carry units and their equipment and also be able to carry injured wildlife. Wildlife Warriors and Australia Zoo has donated two brand new vehicles for 30 ranger units in the park. They also gave the patrols, global postioning units,digital cameras,veterinary drugs,uniforms and spit lights.

Many of the calls these men attend are emergency snare rescues.One rescent call involved two clouded leopards that had been caught, both recovered and re-released back into the wild. Wildlife warrior has teamed up with TRAFFIC S.E. Asia to investigate wildlife trade monitoring network.They have come together along with lawenfocement to help give a clear picture on where and how to apply resources to curb this trade.

Missouri Contributes to Exotic Pet Trade? 2:14 PM

Okay Folks I was doing some research on animal rights in the state of Missouri where I live this is one thing that really surprised me. Please read this and give me your input. I need your help to contact Missouri senators and representatives about this bill. I hate to think the state of Missouri is supporting or encouraging the wildlife trade.

LARGE CARNIVORE (EXOTIC BILL

Status: Did Not Pass
HB 901 Details     Sponsor: Representative Mike Sutherland
SB 206 Supports

This repeat bill would have provided much-needed regulation of large carnivo res (lions, tigers and bears). Missouri is quickly falling behind neighboring states in adopting comprehensive regulation, making our state a haven for exotic animal trafficking (Kansas passed a relatively good law last year). Unfortunately, this bill did not prohibit breeding and the sale of these dangerous animals; it gave permitting authority to the Department of Agriculture. The Alliance supported this bill while working to strengthen certain provisions. This year, we received a hearing in the Senate for the first time, but despite our great lineup of witnesses, the bill did not get a hearing in the House.

5 December 2007


In one of the biggest wildlife cases this decade, the Special Task Force of the Uttar Pradesh Police with the assistance of the Wildlife Protection Society of India (WPSI) seized three tiger skins and three tiger skeletons in Allahabad on Tuesday, 4th December 2007.

Sixteen people were arrested, including wildlife trader Shabeer Hasan Qureshi who is an accused in at least four major wildlife cases.  In particular, Qureshi is the prime accused in the January 2000 case in Khaga, UP, when four tiger skins, 70 leopard skins and a huge haul of other wildlife products were seized. Three other traders were arrested along with two tiger poachers and ten women couriers who belong to the Baheliya community.

The case is a landmark for wildlife enforcement as it includes the arrest of the three key elements of the killing of wild tigers: buyers, poachers and couriers.

“This is a major breakthrough in the fight against wildlife crime in India”, said Belinda Wright, Executive Director of WPSI. “Qureshi is the biggest buyer of tiger products in India today. We are delighted with this case and have nothing but praise for the way in which it was handled by the Special Task Force of the Uttar Pradesh Police. They succeeded by using intelligence-led enforcement which is the only way to effectively tackle this growing menace”, she added. The operation was led by Superintendent of Police, STF, Mr Amitabh Yash, and STF’s Deputy Superintendent of Police, Mr Aravind Chaturvedi.

Preliminary investigations indicate that one of the tigers was killed in Kanha Tiger Reserve in the state of Madhya Pradesh, and another in Tadoba Tiger Reserve in Maharashtra. It is not known where the third tiger came from.

Dear Tammy,

I speak for my colleagues here in the United States as well as on the frontlines in Asia when I say that we appreciate all that you've done to protect wildlife in danger this year.

Your efforts played a leading role in Wildlife Alliance's accomplishments defending severely threatened wild animals like elephants, tigers, and leopards from serious threats like poaching, illegal trafficking and habitat destruction.

As a token of our thanks, I would like to share with you an insider's look at our work.  Check out this short video from the CNN Planet in Peril documentary about Wildlife Alliance's work protecting wild tigers in Cambodia. Our work fighting wildlife crime and protecting some of the world's most vulnerable animal species is made possible by your generous support, day in and day out.

We have bold plans for 2008. And we hope you will continue to stand by our side as we expand our work protecting wild animals like Siberian tigers and Asian elephants.

Thanks for all of your support and have a happy and healthy holiday season.

Sincerely,



Michael Zwirn

Many Species of Great Cats and Rare Dogs and Wolves are in Danger of Vanishing!


Congress is about to debate the Great Cats and Rare Canids Act of 2007 -- H.R. 1464 and S. 1033.

These simple bills will enable the U.S. government to help save 26 of the world's species of great cats and wild canines. These magnificent predators, like clouded leopards, jaguars, and Asian wild dogs, are declining drastically due to habitat loss, poaching, disease, and conflict with humans for scarce resources.

This measure will guarantee critical American support for conservation work around the world, in the effort to reverse the continued devastating de cline of these species, and prevent eventual extinction. And it will fund the work of organizations including Wildlife Alliance, who are working hard to protect wildlife on the front lines.  Sign HERE
