(Photo by CESARE ABBATE/ANSA via AP)MILAN — Who needs Gonzalo Higuain, the record goalscorer in Serie A, when you have Dries Mertens?Mertens’ emergence has eased the pain caused by Higuain’s departure in the off-season. Not content with bagging a hat trick last weekend, the diminutive forward netted four on Sunday to help Napoli to a 5-3 win over Torino.ADVERTISEMENT Where did they go?

It had taken short corners many times this season but to little dividend. However, this time it worked as it was played for Callejon, who crossed for Mertens to fire in on the bounce.Mertens doubled his tally five minutes later, winning and converting a penalty after being pushed over by Antonio Barreca.ADVERTISEMENT PH among economies most vulnerable to virus Smart hosts first 5G-powered esports exhibition match in PH MOST READ Mertens completed a hat trick in nine first-half minutes and then saved the best until last — a sublime chip into the far corner in the 80th minute.“Mertens is an extraordinary player, but the team makes it easier for him with the type of football they are playing,” Napoli coach Maurizio Sarri said. “But we have to grow mentally.

first_imgArticle published by Mike Gaworecki Last month, officials with the Kenya Wildlife Service attempted to move 11 endangered black rhinos from two national parks, Nairobi and Lake Nakuru, to a third, Tsavo East. Nine of them died shortly after arriving in their new home from what an autopsy has shown to be salt poisoning.Today, the Kenyan government announced that a tenth rhino has died and that the eleventh — now the sole survivor of the translocation operation — was attacked by lions yesterday and is clinging to life.The black rhinoceros is a Critically Endangered species, according to the IUCN Red List. Only about 5,500 individuals are believed to survive in the wild today, 750 of them in Kenya. Last month, officials with the Kenya Wildlife Service attempted to move 11 endangered black rhinos from two national parks, Nairobi and Lake Nakuru, to a third, Tsavo East. Nine of them died shortly after arriving in their new home from what an autopsy has shown to be salt poisoning and dehydration.Today, the Kenyan government announced that a tenth rhino has died and that the eleventh — now the sole survivor of the translocation operation — was attacked by lions yesterday and is clinging to life.According to a report from eNews Channel Africa, Kenyan Tourism Minister Najib Balala said at a press briefing in Nairobi this morning that an investigation had determined that “negligence” by the transfer team had led to the 10 rhinos’ deaths due to “multiple stress syndrome intensified by salt poisoning.”The rhinos were taken to Tsavo East National Park in southern Kenya, one of the country’s oldest and largest parks, in order to establish a new breeding ground for the animals in the hopes that they would start a new population. The black rhinoceros is a Critically Endangered species, according to the IUCN Red List. Only about 5,500 individuals are believed to survive in the wild today, 750 of them in Kenya.Autopsies found the water at the endangered black rhinos’ new home in Tsavo East had such a high concentration of salt that it was harmful to the animals, Balala said at the press conference. The BBC reports that Balala added that the Kenyan government had sampled the water in Tsavo East before relocating the rhinos there, but failed to take the results of those tests into consideration. The rhinos ultimately died of dehydration, upper respiratory tract bacteria, and gastric ulcers.Balala also announced that the eleventh relocated rhino was in critical condition after the lion attack. The rhino “was treated and so far we are monitoring that eleventh rhino,” he said.Several Kenya Wildlife Service officials who were involved in the relocation operation have reportedly been suspended.The Kenyan arm of the WWF runs the rhino translocation program with the Kenya Wildlife Service. Though WWF Kenya CEO Mohamed Awer described the translocation process as “extremely challenging” in a statement to CNN, he said the risk was worth it given the odds stacked against the species.“At a time when three rhinos are poached on average a day for their horns, any losses are particularly painful,” Awer told CNN. “Translocating wild animals of this size is extremely challenging and not without risk, but black rhinos are under enormous threat so efforts to try and better protect them, such as translocations, are crucial for future generations.”Kenya’s Tourism and Wildlife Ministry said that nearly 150 black rhinos were translocated to new habitats in the country between 2005 and 2017, and just eight died after being transferred.Poaching driven by the demand for rhino horn for use in traditional medicinal practices in China and Vietnam is the chief threat facing the world’s remaining black rhinos. There are no scientifically proven medical benefits associated with rhino horn, which is made of keratin, the same substance as human hair and fingernails.Two black rhinos (mother and calf) in Lewa, central Kenya.

Good effort trying to be objective in this article. I would like to give a constructive feedback which could help in clearing things up.1. It is mentioned that planting trees in village common lands will have negative affects socially and ecologically. There is no need to even have to agree or disagree with it, because, you also mentioned the fact that Cauvery Calling aims to plant trees only in the private lands of the farmers. So, plantation in the common lands doesn’t come into the picture.2.I don’t see that the ecologists are totally against this project, but just they they have some concerns, mainly in terms of what species of trees will be planted. And because there was no direct communication between the ecologists and Isha Foundation, it was not possible for them to address the concerns. As you seem to have spoken with an Isha spokesperson, if you could connect the concerned parties, it would be great, because I see that the ecologists are genuinely interested in making sure things are done the right way.May we all come together and make things happen.Rare Amazon bush dogs caught on camera in BoliviaCarrot1 Feba very good iniciative to be fallowed by the ranchers all overSponsoredcenter_img Animals, Black Rhino, Conservation, Critically Endangered Species, Endangered Species, Environment, Mammals, Rhinos, Wildlife, Wildlife Conservation last_img read more
