Kung Fu Panda out to prevent poaching of endangered wildlife
8/10/2018

Po might be the clumsiest Panda tickling funny bones in the animated Hollywood flick, Kung Fu Panda, but in a series of short videos, he is raising awareness about a rather serious issue -- poaching of endangered animals including big cats and elephants.  

The video series released today by WildAid and DreamWorks aims at public understanding in China including its Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) and Taiwan region, as well as in Vietnam, Thailand, South Africa, the US, and globally, about the urgent threats these animals face due to poaching.

The release comes hot on the heels of World Lion Day on August 10 and World Elephant Day on August 12. In the last 21 years, massive poaching and habitat loss has decimated the lion’s population by nearly 50 percent in Africa.

Concerned over the population decline, the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) placed “king of the jungle” under the vulnerable category and regionally extinct in African countries. 

Recent studies claim that habitat loss, loss of prey, wildlife conflict and excessive trophy hunting are behind the decline in the number of lions. 

WildAid’s awareness campaign focuses on children to “influence” their parents to discourage consumption and trade of endangered wildlife.  “We’ve seen children persuade grandparents to stop eating shark fin soup or using rhino horn,” said Peter Knights, WildAid CEO. 

“Children love animals, and they are quick to see the injustice of what is happening to them through wildlife trafficking. They can be very influential in pushing older generations to change their bad habits.”

According to WildAid, the recent ban on ivory by China and its HKSAR and Taiwan region has crashed ivory prices by two-thirds and dramatically decreased poaching in Kenya and Tanzania. 

The decision has also put a pressure on European countries and Japan to initiate similar action. The UK recently announced the world’s strictest ivory ban. 

Wildlife protection groups claim that more than 20,000 African elephants are brutally killed for ivory every year. According to IFAW estimates nearly 1,500 rhinos were poached for their horns in 2015 alone. 

Government’s action and awareness campaigns about illegal wildlife trade are witnessing unprecedented public support. “More than 95 percent of Chinese surveyed, support the government’s action to end the ivory trade,” a WildAid survey maintained. 

Another survey by a group of wildlife protection organizations revealed shark fin imports to China fell by 80 percent during 2011-2014. The wholesale shark fin sales in Beijing, Shanghai, and Guangzhou also crashed by 80 percent during the same time period.

In the video series, Po asserts that “poaching steals from us all.” Elephants are poached for their ivory, rhinos for their horns, lions, and tigers for their bones and skins, and pangolins for their scales and meat.

朱易 : 馬鞍峰教會的增長及其深遠影響 (1) 
許多前來參加每年一次牧師研討會的牧師感到(2003年人數達到二十五萬之多),他們正經歷著一場由華理克牧師主導的改革運動,他們好像又回到了激動人心的馬丁路德改教運動的時代,不同的是他們可以與領導今天這場改革的領袖相遇和交談。

華理克牧師認為馬丁路德時代的改革是讓教會清楚教會所相信的是什麼,這也是我們今天還在傳講的資訊和教義,而今天的改革是讓教會清楚教會要做什麼


第二次宗教改革的呼聲 
新興教會的運動是教會的第二次宗教改革, 它將徹底改寫教會歷史, 並開創全新的教會時代.

朱易 : 馬鞍峰教會的增長模式和教會市場法的危機 (1) 
除了“目標導向”的增長公式,許多牧師認為華理克牧師還有增長的秘訣,但華理克牧師認為他的增長策略其實是十分簡單,歸納起來只有三條.

不少學者持懷疑的態度, 他們認為“目標導向”不過是將傳統的基督教原則作了不同的包裝。




《断背山》风头正健,价值观江河日下 (1) 
对基督徒而言,这部影片只不过是一个用艺术包装起来的同性恋合理的说教。但这一次,基督徒却无法用忽略它的存在的方式来反击它,他们必须寻找新的方法来坚守传统的战线。


朱易: 他的正面思維影響了全世界 (1) 
但是斯凱勒在教會界配受尊重,除了他在教堂的建造上獨樹一幟外,他的人品和神學上也頗為出色。他是少數幾個沒有醜聞的電視布道家之一,而讓他成為非主流教會和許多基督徒仿效的對象的原因是,他的講道著重正面信息,用正面思維看問題。
