Breaking new MyanmarDeparture into the new Myanmar
One-hundred and one hundred research projects and geology books at the BNFC.
More than one hundred national and international geologist's research and geology books were presented at the two-day Breaking New Frontiers Conferences, which took place on November 2 and 3 at the Novotel Hotel in Yangon. It was organized by the Myanmar Applied Earth Science Association (MAESA). More than 70 presentations were given by geographers from 16 different nations and 40 geologist books were made.
Development of ORE and exploration reservoirs; sediment basins and reservoirs: characterization and modeling; ocean and oceanography; geological and geophysical sciences; earthquakes and earthquakes and seasonal surveys; tectonic and gondwana dispersions; mineralogical and gemstone reservoirs; geological risks; catastrophe and ecological feasibility. "For young Europeans, it is necessary to build up capacities in the fields of ecology and geosciences.
This is also an occasion to encourage cooperation between overseas and locally based professionals. Burma is a cohesive community from the West and other overseas nations. This will give us a great possibility to study the Myanmar geological system, especially the Indian Ocean. Burma has great oceanography, and the rest of the planet has much to gain from Myanmar's oceanography.
Dr. Myo Thant, vice-chair of the Myanmar Earthquake Committee (MEC), said that "four research projects of the Myanmar Earthquake Committee will be presented to the meeting, among them pre-sequake scenarios above 6 on the Richter magnitude range, a system for surveying and surveying sea inle and analysing seawater.
Domestic and international gemologists, professors, officials from the Department of Meteorology and Hydrology, the Myanmar Engineering Society and the Myanmar Earthquake Committee participated.
Break! A new elephant family report unveils alarmingly increasing trafficking of Asiatic elephant hide from Myanmar to China
Recent research collected in Myanmar and China by the British environmental organisation ELEFANT FAMILY shows an alarmingly escalating illicit trafficking in Asiatic shells. The new Skinned - The Growling Appetite for Asiatic Elephants published today shows the increase in the use of wild game hunting as an emerging cross-border wild animal delinquency and to support and benefit those who deal in, promote and support it.
After the Myanmar to China Myanmar forest retail network, the review emphasises alarming indications that dermatological devices will be authorised for use in pharmaceuticals. "Asia's bull population is becoming more and more divided and vulnerable. Dealing with elephants of all ages could be a catastrophe for this threatened, slowly hatching species," said Belinda Stewart-Cox, director of the family.
11-11 Elephant Family is the first to study the commercial network of bull skins and has been investigating the trading of Asiatic bulls through research, analyses and surveys since 2014. An eyewitness account of the elephant's "killing fields" in Myanmar and a uniquely profiled Chinese bullskin dealer, the account provides a frightening and complete picture of this growing illicit wildfight.
"Originally we watched the livestock market and were alerted that Myanmar has seen a significant rise in the number of poachers. We' ve also seen an increased number of pictures of bull corpses with lack ing stripes and more recently of corpses that have been completely and operatively skinned," Stewart-Cox added. Concerned about the well-being of Asia's feral animals, the aid organization's detectives began research into the illegal trafficking of bull skins on both the Internet and the local market and suspended the 2016 CITES ( "Convention on Internationale Trade in Endangered Species of Wildfuna and Flora") Conference of the Parties in Johannesburg, South Africa, to the CITES.
Whilst some of the suggestions in this document have been adopted, the issue of iris remains dominant in the debate on the issue of bulls and little has been done to tackle the emergence of trafficking in shells. It is mainly used for two different applications. First: dehydrated and pulverized as an additive for conventional medical devices claiming to heal gastric complaints or, blended with bull grease, to make a creme for the treatment of hideinfection.
Square items of buffed hide were also available as a pendant. "We' re now seeing an upsurge in illegal on-line publicity for the sales of powders on elephants' skins. Myanmar is currently the primary resource where government agencies have detected a rapid growth in the poachers market since 2010.
It urges cooperation between government, civic groups and the general community to address the problem before it threatened the viability of the Asiatic bull. Over the last fifty years, the Asiatic elephant populations have been reduced by about half and 90% of their habitats have vanished. Poaching, the increasing trafficking in skins and the need for wildly trapped infants for tourist purposes continue to be a permanent menace, as does the fatal and fierce battle between humans and animals over habitats and aliment.
Committed to the protection of the Asiatic bull from dying out in the great outdoors, ELPHANT Family is funding groundbreaking initiatives across Asia to reunite fragmented forests, avoid conflicts and tackle illegal game. More than 160 nature protection initiatives for this icons but vulnerable species have been financed by elephants family since 2002.
