There aren’t many wolves left in the Norwegian wilderness Just 68, in fact.

But Norway’s government has decided even that’s too many. Authorities announced plans this month to kill 47 wolves, or about two-thirds of the remaining population.

The move has sparked both intense criticism and praise. Farmers welcome the cull, claiming wolves threaten their livestock, and therefore their livelihood. Conservationists, on the other hand, condemn the move as an attack on a species that’s already on unsteady ground.

“The wolf population is already very small and critically endangered,” Silje Lundberg, a prominent Norwegian environmentalist, told the U.K.’s Express. “To eradicate 70 percent of such a vulnerable species is shocking.”

In Europe today, there are an estimated 12,000 wolves — a population that has surged in recent years. But only in Norway is the species listed as “critically endangered” due to frequent culling.

When the government announced plans to hunt 11 wolves last year, no less than11,571 people signed up to kill them. Or about 700 hunters for every wolf.

Scientists, however, contend that taking wolves out of the ecological picture will have a profound effect on all wildlife. As a keystone species, wolves play “a unique and crucial role in the way an ecosystem functions,” National Geographic notes. “Without keystone species, the ecosystem would be dramatically different or cease to exist altogether.”

I don’t want to wake up in a day that the bees mass death happened, or the wolves could be killed by governments’ plans on this planet! Humans kill itself enough! Leave the animals and nature alone! And if Norway government puts this plan into action, history will remember this government as “MURDERER!” and it will be judged by future generations as “WOLF KILLER!” Don’t forget that!

The people are saying in Turkish at the video: “Artvin is ours, and it will be ours forever.”

I shortly explain what is happening in Artvin-Cerattepe, Turkey.

Artvin Cerrahtepe is near to coast of Black Sea and the border city of Georgia. Artvin is rich of trees and habitat. Artvin Cerattepe is at the list of 100 natural forest of world. But a mining company  wanted to build a cupper mine before two years ago. This company is known pro-government, also the owner of this firm has been inside the tape recordings at 17-25 december of the government corruption. And this company will cut 3500 trees for this mine. Artvin public is resisting to them.

The company wants to build copper mine at marked peak in the picture below

They want to destroy this beauty!

The public of Artvin (yes I mention about all city) applied to court to stop this company. And the law period continues still. But this company doesn’t know any law and they made a construction site for mine two days ago. And for last two days this public has been resisting against them and injustice!

Yesterday the people were face to face with the police and many people were arrested. Although it is not yet a definitive judicial decision, the police forces made a set in front of the people, and they attacked to the people.

So many people injured and police forces used many tear gas.

And during last two days many people are on the streets at many big cities at Turkey for supporting to the people of Artvin.

I believe that after you read this news you felt sorry right now like me for the forest and the animals in it. If you have any twitter account, please add #cerattepe or #Artvin hashtag to your tweets. Not only the people of Artvin, the animals and trees would remain greteful to you forever!
