Forces for Nature: The Power of Communities to Protect the Planet 
November 13, 2013 | National Geographic Society | Washington, D.C.

Around the world, local communities and indigenous peoples depend on natural resources such as forests, wildlife, and water for their ways of life. These communities are often found caught in the middle as growing global demands threaten their resource base. The 2013 Fuller Symposium will explore how local and indigenous communities can empower themselves by managing their own natural resources—and in turn become a global force for conservation.

Speakers from around the world will engage in active discussion around topics including local responses to forces like land grabbing and climate change, evaluation of community conservation impacts, new technologies for catalyzing social movements, private-sector initiatives, and global policy opportunities. The annual Fuller Symposium convenes thought leaders in science, policy, conservation, and development to discuss innovative approaches to complex issues facing our planet.

This one day event will take place on November 13, 2013 at the National Geographic Society’s headquarters in Washington, D.C. It is free and open to the public.

From 4 to 10 October it’s International Animal Week, and this year the NSPCA is encouraging animal lovers to recognise and celebrate the role that animals play in our lives by making some simple choices.

“This involves very few lifestyle changes, if any,” explained NSPCA Spokesperson, Christine Kuch. “It is about making conscious decisions that will have long-term beneficial effects for animals and so for us all. Building a compassionate community is the aim.”

According to the Association, this boils down to making responsible choices – like adopting from an SPCA or raising awareness by inviting the SPCA to speak at a school or community meeting.

It’s also about being careful about the organisations you support. For instance, rehabilitation centres, sanctuaries or welfare organisations with wild animals that can be petted or fed by hand are often misleading. Supporting circuses with no wild animal acts is a worthy step. Insisting on free range produce, noting and reporting cruelty and speaking out. Don’t support web sites that trade in live animals and make it clear why you will not attend or support ‘festivities’ where fireworks are used. Each small action can have a huge ripple effect.

“Every year we issue an appeal to everyone to join in International Animal Week by supporting the activities in your area,” added Christine Kuch. “In 2013 we wish to make this the starting point and to continue into and through the festive season, then onwards. It can be as simple as picking up litter which of course harms and may even kill small creatures and birds. It is about showing that we care and being part of solutions.”

Contact your local SPCA to find out what activities will be taking place in your area. www.nspca.co.za has details of how we can all help on an ongoing basis – and you can leave your comments and ideas onwww.facebook.com/nspca

Join Project Rhino KZN and Kinglsey Holgate for World Rhino Weekend at the Boardwalk Shopping Centre, where more than 5,000 pieces of rhino art created by children in South Africa, Mozambique, and Swaziland will be on display!

Kingsley Holgate and other celebrities will be speaking to an estimated 30,000 visitors over the weekend and South African soccer team — Thanda Rhinos — will make a special appearance. White “rhino crosses” will be sold to raise funds for Project Rhino KZN’s work and schools, businesses, artists and conservation leaders are lining up to take part in this weekend of targeted action, fundraising and awareness!

Project Rhino KZN has also created two three-minute video clips (in English and Vietnamese). In these, children from KwaZulu-Natal speak out vehemently against rhino poaching and their words are supported by thousands of hand-drawn pictures from children in the rest of South Africa, Mozambique and Swaziland. Project Rhino KZN encourages all World Rhino Day supporters to hear the heartfelt pleas of children asking for rhino poaching to be stopped, and to share the videos!


No one is too young to celebrate World Rhino Day: A talented group of nursery school children in South Africa have created a rhino out of cardboard boxes and newspaper, and giving it a colorful paint job.

About Earth Day Network

The first Earth Day on April 22, 1970, activated 20 million Americans from all walks of life and is widely credited with launching the modern environmental movement. The passage of the landmark Clean Air ActClean Water ActEndangered Species Act and many other groundbreaking environmental laws soon followed. Growing out of the first Earth Day, Earth Day Network (EDN) works with over 22,000 partners in 192 countries to broaden, diversify and mobilize the environmental movement. More than 1 billion people now participate in Earth Day activities each year, making it the largest civic observance in the world.

But Earth Day Network does not stop there.

All of EDN’s activities, whether greening schools or promoting green economic policies at home and abroad, inform and energize populations so they will act to secure a healthy future for themselves and their children. With its partner organizations, EDN provides civic engagement opportunities at the local, state, national and global levels. At every turn, EDN works to broaden the definition of "environment" to include all issues that affect our health, our communities and our environment, such as greening deteriorated schools, creating green jobs and investment, and promoting activism to stop air and water pollution.

Over the last 40 years, EDN has executed successful environmental campaigns on issues ranging from climate change and drinking water to voter registration and saving the whale. EDN is a recognized leader in creating civically–oriented innovative programs with partners outside of the environmental movement to tackle new challenges. Our core programs today focus on:

Greening Schools and Promoting Environmental Education In partnership with the U.S. Green Building Council and The Clinton Foundation, EDN’s Green Schools Campaign, aims to green all of America’s K-12 schools within a generation.  Green schools save money, conserve energy and water, and foster better-performing, healthier students.  EDN’s Educators' Network, used by over 30,000 teachers and administrators nationwide, provides innovative tools and resources to promote civic participation and to develop a sense of environmental responsibility among students of all ages. Together, EDN’s Education and Policy Teams organize federal and state legislative campaigns to green school facilities, improve school food, and enhance environmental education and civic engagement.  These include the Healthy Schools Act, No Child Left Inside, the National Civic Education Project, No Idling and the Climate Change Educators’ Grant.  EDN is also working internationally to promote green schools and improve environmental education.

Accelerating the Global Green Economy

For years, EDN has created dialogues and conferences engaging civil society, corporate, and government leaders on how to transition from a traditional, fossil fuel-based economy to one based on renewable energy, energy efficiency and other sustainable development principles. Our Global Day of Conversation continues to provide local government leaders with an opportunity to engage with their constituents in a dialogue about renewable energy, sustainability and the green economy.  As in 2010, EDN will co-host the Climate Leadership Gala with Sir Richard Branson’s Carbon War Room at the Creating Climate Wealth Conference, convening the world’s most successful green business leaders. EDN’s newest initiative, Women and the Green Economy (WAGE&trade, is promoting the unique leadership role women bring to advancing green economic and investment policies at the international, national and local levels.

A Billion Acts of Green®

From greening schools to hosting town hall discussions on clean energy investment and green jobs, Earth Day Network leads its network in thousands of Earth Day events and actions worldwide each year.  To catalyze global environmental activism, Earth Day Network chose A Billion Acts of Green® as the theme for Earth Day 2011. A Billion Acts of Green® – the largest environmental service campaign in the world – inspires and rewards simple individual acts and larger organizational initiatives that further the goal of measurably reducing carbon emissions and supporting sustainability. The goal is to register one billion actions in advance of the global Earth Summit in Rio in 2012.

CITES (the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora) is an international agreement between governments. Its aim is to ensure that international trade in specimens of wild animals and plants does not threaten their survival.

Click on the chart to see the trade data dashboards

Widespread information nowadays about the endangered status of many prominent species, such as the tiger and elephants, might make the need for such a convention seem obvious. But at the time when the ideas for CITES were first formed, in the 1960s, international discussion of the regulation of wildlife trade for conservation purposes was something relatively new. With hindsight, the need for CITES is clear. Annually, international wildlife trade is estimated to be worth billions of dollars and to include hundreds of millions of plant and animal specimens. The trade is diverse, ranging from live animals and plants to a vast array of wildlife products derived from them, including food products, exotic leather goods, wooden musical instruments, timber, tourist curios and medicines. Levels of exploitation of some animal and plant species are high and the trade in them, together with other factors, such as habitat loss, is capable of heavily depleting their populations and even bringing some species close to extinction. Many wildlife species in trade are not endangered, but the existence of an agreement to ensure the sustainability of the trade is important in order to safeguard these resources for the future.

Because the trade in wild animals and plants crosses borders between countries, the effort to regulate it requires international cooperation to safeguard certain species from over-exploitation. CITES was conceived in the spirit of such cooperation. Today, it accords varying degrees of protection to more than 30,000 species of animals and plants, whether they are traded as live specimens, fur coats or dried herbs.

CITES was drafted as a result of a resolution adopted in 1963 at a meeting of members of IUCN (The World Conservation Union). The text of the Convention was finally agreed at a meeting of representatives of 80 countries in Washington, D.C., the United States of America, on 3 March 1973, and on 1 July 1975 CITES entered in force. The original of the Convention was deposited with the Depositary Government in the Chinese, English, FrenchRussian and Spanish languages, each version being equally authentic.

CITES is an international agreement to which States (countries) adhere voluntarily. States that have agreed to be bound by the Convention ('joined' CITE are known as Parties. Although CITES is legally binding on the Parties – in other words they have to implement the Convention – it does not take the place of national laws. Rather it provides a framework to be respected by each Party, which has to adopt its own domestic legislation to ensure that CITES is implemented at the national level.
