Eco-Sys Action The world of Boopy Boopy's Blog Eco-Sys Action Football Cup PDF Presentation                                       


Finally, with better protection from the European Union, the marine sanctuaries established by the Cook Islands and French Polynesia, and Cathay Pacific's ban on transporting fins, sharks have passed a November that is encouraging for their immediate future.  Palau, the Maldives, Tokelau, Honduras, and the Bahamas have recently followed suit.  Some real reasons for hope!  Awareness among youth in Hong Kong and China is growing, and gradually, the new generation is taking responsibility.  The road is still long, but there is progress.   



A partnership with Kula Eco-Park in Fiji in the Pacific has given dozens of local students the opportunity to discover the park's conservation programs which focus on the county's wildlife.  The park is distinguished by its protection of the Fijian crested iguana (Brachylophus Vitiensis), a highly endangered endemic species.  A meeting that Boopy didn't want to miss!



Two Eco-Sys Action Football Cup (EAFC) tournaments took place in November and December in Madagascar in partnership with the association MAMITA.  The first in Andasibe, a region of primary forests rich in rare endemic species, starred the chameleon.  The second took place in Vatomandry on the east coast, highlighting local fish as a symbol for awareness of marine biodiversity.  Several tournaments are planned for 2013 in various regions of the island.   



“Boopy and the Treasure of Cambodia” is Boopy's new adventure comic in which our little eco-detective educates his young friends about forest protection with focus on saving the last tigers of Indochina.  A story as moving as it is dynamic, that will be distributed to schools that work with Poh Kao for the protection of tigers.

Rescue of a Western hoolock gibbon (Hoolock H. hoolock) from a village in North-eastern India that had been captured a year ago and kept on the end of a rope.  This gibbon was saved by the Huro Program and can hope to see its native forest in a future reintroduction project.  He was baptised « Boopy » by the team!  A wonderful recognition!
