Fishes and Shellfishes

Détraqués et traqués, ils sont sous pression. Le pillage commence sur l’estran avec la pêche à pied de loisir et s’étend en haute mer. L’effort de pêche est de plus en plus violent et se radicalise. L’Union Européenne n’hésite plus à électrocuter la mer pour faire sortir les soles des fonds. Les poissons sauvages sont réduits en farine pour nourrir des poissons d’élevage. Les aires de reproduction et de nourrissage sont détruites. Certaines huîtres sont des OGM. Robin des Bois embarque, informe, interpelle, pèse dans les Conventions internationales et incite toutes les parties prenantes à réfléchir avant d’agir.

Halloween at sea

30 Oct 2019

Halloween at sea

For several years now, 3 monster trawlers have been haunting the Channel, the Irish Sea and the Northeast Atlantic up to the Arctic Ocean. Using their power, their European flags and their super powerful sonars, they detect and collect in their 500-meter-long trawling nets schools of mackerel, herring, whiting and saurel. The fish are pumped into the nets, sucked into pipes, sorted in freezing rooms, stuffed into 25-kg parcels, unloaded in the Netherlands and most of them are then sent to Western Africa in reefer ships. The sea monsters are accused of contributing to the exhaustion of sea resources in the South Atlantic and to the ruin of local flotillas, especially in Mauritania. Their crew is multinational, their command is European.

CITES CoP18 Press release n°1

The 18th meeting of the Conference of the 184 Parties (CoP) to the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora – CITES – is meeting in Geneva from 17 to 28 August 2019. Robin des Bois (Robin Hood), the Paris based NGO, has been an observer at CITES for 30 years. This conference was scheduled to be held in Colombo in May-June 2019. It was postponed and then moved to Switzerland due to the April 21 attacks in Sri Lanka.
Will CITES prove that it is competent to coordinate the international cooperation against environmental crime and resist the siren song of the wildlife extinction capitalism?
Will CITES Parties finally recognize that wild animals are No Border and that species such as giraffes and elephants should have the right to move across political and administrative boundaries?
