China is the World's largest market for smuggled endangered animal species!!

"The financial boom in China has led to a change in appetite. Protected bears, tigers, turtles, snakes, and fish are among the casualties of ‘refined’ culinary taste. China has massacred much of its own wild animal population, and is well on it’s way to do the same in neighboring countries." – Source: Global Animal

"China has emerged as the world's largest market for smuggled endangered animal species." source:

I say enough is enough! The Chinese and all other countries which allow this abuse of animal to occur, have to be stopped from killing and smuggling wild animals for their own consumption and their own financial gain! And people in the rest of the World have to stop buying these animals and their parts! The Governments of the countries of this World need to set up more ways to catch the Chinese and these other countries  in the act of smuggling and  trading in endangered animals and their parts.Many countries are already doing this.These countries such as Bahrain have increased their security at their borders (see: ). Why can't all countries do this and also why can' t they create heavy fines for people who buy these animals and their parts?  How can an individual help these animals? You can report smugglers to the authorities if you interact with these smugglers or sellers of animal parts and most of all you can stop buying animal parts. Also you can stop going to zoos and similar businesses which you suspect have smuggled animals in their premises!

Thoughts worth thinking about

"Our subconscious minds have no sense of humor, play no jokes and cannot tell the difference between reality and an imagined thought or image. What we continually think about eventually will manifest in our lives."-Sidney Madwed

Laws alone can not secure freedom of expression; in order that every woman and man present their views without penalty, there must be spirit of tolerance in the entire population.- Albert Einstein Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. - Leo Buscaglia

A person's true wealth is the good he or she does in the world. - Mohammed

Our task must be to free ourselves... by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature and its beauty. -Albert Einstein

The best way to find yourself, is to lose yourself in the service of others. - Ghandi

The unselfish effort to bring cheer to others will be the beginning of a happier life for ourselves. - Helen Keller

Aim for success, not perfection. Never give up your right to be wrong, because then you will lose the ability to learn new things and move forward with your life. Remember that fear always lurks behind perfectionism. Confronting your fears and allowing yourself the right to be human can, paradoxically, make yourself a happier and more productive person. - Dr. David M. Burns

Life is as dear to a mute creature as it is to man. Just as one wants happiness and fears pain, just as one wants to live and not die, so do other creatures. -His Holiness The Dalai Lama

Mankind's true moral test, its fundamental test (which lies deeply buried from view), consists of its attitude towards those who are at its mercy: animals. And in this respect mankind has suffered a fundamental debacle, a debacle so fundamental that all others stem from it. -

Milan Kundera, The Unbearable Lightness of Being

The worst sin towards our fellow creatures is not to hate them, but to be indifferent to them. That's the essence of inhumanity. -George Bernard Shaw

Ego's trick is to make us lose sight of our interdependence. That kind of ego-thought gives us a perfect justification to look out only for ourselves. But that is far from the truth. In reality we all depend on each other and we have to help each other. The husband has to help his wife, the wife has to help the husband, the mother has to help her children, and the children are supposed to help the parents too, whether they want to or not.-Gehlek Rinpoche Source: "The Best Buddhist Writing 2005 pg. 165

The hostile attitude of conquering nature ignores the basic interdependence of all things and events---that the world beyond the skin is actually an extension of our own bodies---and will end in destroying the very environment from which we emerge and upon which our whole life depends.
