Alcoholism in Aboriginals unfortunately is a common problem because of colonization and social upheaval. In the past, we have seen issues like racial profiling against aboriginals and inequality when it comes to the sentencing of these people. Having a separate Aboriginal court system would deter this possibility. 2. Natives should have the right to fish and hunt in the certain times that they have elated.
The Norwegian and Japanese positions and arguments to be permitted with the hunting of non-endangered species of whales as a cultural exemption should not be considered. According to the Whale and Dolphin Conservation, “the whaling industry is in decline and the demand for meat is falling” (WDC, n.d.). Given this statement, I would support the ban of whaling worldwide. In addition, it would be difficult and costly to monitor the whaling activity that is taking place in waters where whales frequent. The separation of non-endangered species will not deter whalers from hunting any whale in sight.
One thing Seaworld isn’t telling us is that they take whales from their families in the wild. When whales are taken from families they are lost forever. When a whale is taken from its pod, ( families lived in pods) the whale could have some negative effects. Every pod has their own way of speaking with whistling and shrieks. When whales go to aquarium they
As a whole, whale hunting has become more and more conventional. It seems like nothing is wrong for hunting whales from the ocean. If this activity continues to be uncontrolled, whales will extinct in one day. Although whale hunting is known to be profitable to the hunters, whaling is still unacceptable because they are the beautiful creation of mother nature that we have to protect, it is considered as animal cruelty or abusion and it will cause pollution to the sea, thus becoming danger to human beings. First and foremost, whaling should be completely banned to
Do you agree with the Norwegian and Japanese position on permitting the hunting of non-endangered species of whales as a cultural exemption? Answer: I think to certain extend I agree to maintain some level of whaling, I guess that it should only be allowed in the villages that depend of this meat as a main source of food, and it should be banned in places where is only done to seek monetary gain. Do you think the whaling ban constitutes a violation of these nations' sovereignty? Answer: I don't believe that sovereignty should be taken that seriously as it is only an idea and it does not affects peoples life in any way and it is not vital for human kind survival, I do think like I mention on the question below, that if it is an imperative
If the world today gave up hunting, wildlife would become non existent and animals would struggle to thrive due to disease and overpopulation. Outdoorsmen also gain plentiful amount of experience while hunting. They gain relationships, knowledge of the outdoors, and they maintain an old tradition and keep it alive and thriving. In the future hunting may become an even more pressing and controversial subject; however, we must do everything in our power to keep hunting alive. Hunting has a deeper meaning to some people and to take that away from them is in some ways inhumane.
i Page 5 generation and to avoid all kind of assimilation or integration in the majority society. Self-determination allows the indigenous people to promote their traditional culture without any foreign influence. Self-determination can also be perceived to protect their traditional land from all kind of industry, mining, and energy or forestry projects that are destroyed the natural or cultural beauty of their traditional land. The state is also responsible for protecting the traditional land Sami land from all type of industrial revolution. The third aspect of self-determination for Sami the people has linked that the traditional land needs more protection.
Suddenly it was not a game. They were in the country of the enemies”(pg.29). In addition, it's obvious that White Man's Dog is risking his life, but he knows that if he does this the trust of his people will be on him. James Cash said, “ responsibilities are given to him on whom trust rest. Responsibility is always a sign of trust”.
As a result of sharks’ fins and teeth hunting, the number of these animals has significantly decreased. White sharks are often caught in large tuna nets, while hunting on them, or can also get trapped in special complex nettings that protect beaches. The English shark protection organization “Shark Trust” confirms that up to 73 million sharks are killed in targeted hunts for fins annually. Combining all the data worldwide- 200 million sharks are killed around the world each year. This is a great paradox because the number of humans killed by sharks compared to these numbers is insignificant.
Imagine you live in a world where there are no plants, forest, animals, or oceans all there is in where these things us to be is concrete, landfills of garbage, and buildings. This is what will transpire if we do not protect or wildlife, wildlife conservation is a very important situation as it helps keeps plants and animals off the endangered list. According to the World Wild Life organization there are twenty-six endangered animals and twenty-one critically endangered animals this is very overwhelming as animals are an important part of our environment and ecosystem. With human population increasing at an alarming rate, with the growing rate of humans there is going to be less land for animals and plants, more man-made pollution and plastic debris will go into the oceans, lakes, and streams.
Out of many concerns of things in Alaska environmentally, one of the most daunting is the Bristol Bay dilemma. It has been a problem for very long, and seems to be getting more controversy than many other issues. This issue is about if a pebble mine should be built there or not. Many people provide the argument about how the Alaska bay doesn’t need to be put at risk especially, because it’s a valuable food source. Bristol bay is a salmon hotspot!
The overpopulation of Pollock is creating an environment with no sustainable food source for the sea lions. Commercial fishing would also provide an opportunity to fish in a way that is co-beneficial to the environment, rather than carelessly overfishing. In order for this plan to be successful, close numbers of Pollock, herring, and Western stock sea lions will have to be observed and recorded. If immediate action is taken, the sea lion population could rebound within a few generations. The stakeholders in this issue are environmental groups, such as Greenpeace, who firstly advocated for the ban on commercially fishing Pollock in Alaska, as well as the Federal government, who passed the legislature.
Neskantaga has fallen from 4th on the federal government’s water treatment priority list, then to 15th and then apparently they have fallen to 19th on the unreleased list. The government has left it so long, in my opinion, it has become a human rights issue. This is discrimination to First Nations people. Just because they don’t live the same live as a Canadian citizen in Toronto, doesn’t mean that they shouldn’t get clean water that doesn’t have to be flown in. Not only are they discriminating the First Nations people but they are also serving injustice to the Neskantaga band as a whole.
Listing of the northern spotted owl as threatened and the designation of critical habitat space are helping to reduce habitat loss on Federal lands. The owl and its habitat are of immense scientific value, providing opportunities for inquiry and for increasing our understanding of this unique ecosystem and its role in our lives and in those of future generations. To date, little research has been done on these forests in the Pacific Northwest. To allow their extinction is to permanently destroy the possibility of exploration and the benefits generated by new
Ah Canada, the home of crackhead mayors, shitty hockey teams, bad weather and more apologies than citizens. Plus, it is the only country that lies in their own national anthem “The True North strong and free!” the only free thing being their healthcare because everything else is so overpriced. However, I would argue that Canada isn’t America. And even though we may be faulted for being overly polite and linguistically challenged as a Canadian girl, born and raised I can easily say that Canada is absolutely amazing. Because Canada is not America’s “little brother”.
