If the proposed scheme were to go ahead, the existing sea wall at Weymarks would be carefully breached to allow the tides through. More information -

Wildlife-friendly flood defences sought The Government should use wildlife-friendly alternatives to concrete walls, when shielding communities from inland flooding, a bird charity said today. The call from the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds was being presented at the World Wetlands Day conference, in London. The RSPB believes that creating special wetland areas to provide flood storage protection, shielding towns and villages at risk can allow wetland birds such as lapwing, snipe and redshank to nest once more in Britain’s lowland landscapes. In the last 30 years, these birds and other wetland wildlife have largely ebbed away from many parts of lowland Britain through dramatic losses and drainage of wetland habitats.

We are failing to heed GM dangers The Agricultural Biotechnology Council, a "front man" for the genetic engineering industry, wrote to local authorities urging them not to declare themselves GM-free. In sweetly reasonable language, they urge that the UK "should not be denied the benefits of GM technology". In effect, they say "keep the options open". But that is exactly what the growing of GM crops, even experimentally, does not do. Because of the inevitable contamination of other plant species, it closes the options for organic agriculture. It is a moratorium on the growing of GM crops in the open environment which would keep the options open.

Under new legislation, member states will have to aim for a market share of at least 2% of all road fuels by 2005, and 5.75% by 2010. That compares with less than 1% at the moment. If the targets are not met, the member state will have to inform the Brussels of the measures it is taking to achieve them. The European Commission may then set mandatory national targets. The aim is to reduce the EU's dependence on fossil fuels and on imports. Brussels hopes to achieve a 20% inclusion rate for all alternative fuels by 2020.

Wildlife of the Oak Ridges Moraine
The Moraine is home to many species of animals, including the great blue heron, muskrat, mink, white-tailed deer, leopard frog and red fox. More than 900 species of plants grow on the Moraine. Sensitive, threatened animals and plants that are rare in southern Ontario can be found on the Oak Ridges Moraine. Because the Moraine links the region’s natural green areas and river valleys, it allows forest creatures, wetland species and open-country wildlife to mingle freely, preventing their genetic isolation. Mink, a semi-aquatic form of weasel, can be found in the Moraine’s wetland environments (large marshlands, lakeshores, rivers and streams). Mink depend on waterways for safe travel, as well as for food and shelter. MINK LEOPARD FROG Leopard frogs live in meadows and other grassy areas in the summer. They hibernate in deep pools during the winter, and can sometimes be seen on surface mud underwater. In early spring, leopard frogs breed in ponds and marshes, and on quiet edges of rivers, lakes and streams.
Red foxes look for dens in small knolls in fields, near stream banks, hedge and fence rows, and along the edges of forests. Young foxes travel extensively in the fall, seeking new territories. Males have been traced as far as 250 kilometres from their birth sites.

British Columbia's Coast offers travellers opportunities to see wildlife in its true habitat. Our 1997 season found us watching a variety of whales and marine mammals from our boat and kayaks. We saw a number of Dall's and Harbour Porpoises as well as the playful and acrobatic Pacific White-sided Dolphin. An inquisitive Minke whale delighted us all by approaching the boat, spyhopping and diving under the boat only to reappear on the other side. We also saw Humpback Whales and many pods of Orcas (aka Killer Whales). On other occasions we have heard or have seen animals blowing, but have been unable to identify the species. We have often waited,whispered and prepared our cameras for that brief thrill of seeing something so wonderful so near. Whale watching is always exciting and can bring everyone up on deck even in the middle of the meal. Stellar Sea Lions and Harbour Seals are often seen basking on rocks or swimming and feeding around kelp beds. The Stellar Sea Lions are very large with the lighter coloured male often weighing up to 2,200 pounds (1000 kg.). T heir heads are flatter than the Harbour Seals and they sport a distinctly furry coat.They show little fear as we pass by affording us excellent views of these vocal and magnificent creatures. Harbour seals are considerably smaller and sport beautiful slick mottled coats. Curious but shy, they may quietly survey travellers from afar, bobbing up from below the water's surface or they may suddenly dive into the water in a noisy and ungainly rush. Once in the water they are svelte, acrobatic swimmers capable of great speed and agility.

Making the clean kill Rotenone treatments wipe out entire fish populations, but they lead to cleaner lake water?for ducks, for game fish, and for people Anglers on some Minnesota lakes owe their angling success to a fish-killing poison, used as a medicine of sorts to rehabilitate shallow lakes. That's what took place on Mink and Somers lakes in Wright County, where the DNR killed and removed hundreds of thousands of carp and bullheads in 1994. Today, game fish populations on these linked lakes are booming, according to Paul Dietrich, area fisheries biologis. Largemouth bass stocked in 1995 have reached 16 inches, and a third of the sunfish population is now bigger than 7 inches. "Perch are now reaching three-quarters of a pound," adds Dietrich, "and walleyes stocked in 1995 should weigh 4 pounds this year." What biologists did for Mink and Somers they've done for many shallow lakes in southern Minnesota. In a process called lake rehabilitation, the DNR removes unwelcome numbers of carp and bullheads using rotenone, a fish-asphyxiating chemical derived from the bark of a South American tree. Biologists then restock the lake with game fish such as bass and walleyes to provide fishing opportunities.

School gets into Easter spirit
by Gazette reporters EGG DECORATING: Woodleigh School in Langton's egg decorating winners Matthew Proctor (5), Patrick Litten (6), George Mewburn (7), James Richardson (7) and Calvin Itburren (6). CHILDREN at one North Yorkshire school went to work on an egg for their latest project. Woodleigh School pupils in Langton, outside Malton, held an egg-decorating competition in a bid to brighten up the school with some seasonal art work. Nursery and reception teacher Claire Howitt, who organised the competition, said it had been a great success. "We didn't hold one last year but I think this will become an annual event now," she said. The children, aged three to fourteen, decorated their eggs as part of a fun homework project - and half the school's 120 pupils decided to have a go. Miss Howitt said: "There were loads of lovely ones, lots of little birds, owls, peacocks and eyes - people had really used their imagination. We displayed them all in the front hall and it made it look really nice. "People had stuck all sorts of bits and bobs on."

87. Mink Have Invaded The Countryside

Alien Invaders Animal rights lunatics have decimated the country's wildlife by releasing mink My farmer friend was fuming when I met him on the river bank. For six days he had been keeping an eye on a mallard nest but, that very morning, it had been raided and the eggs destroyed. The nest would certainly have been sheltered from heavy rain or snow and safe from flooding but, unfortunately, it provided no protection against the attack of one of nature's most ruthless predators. As Sandy crept up to check the eggs, he disturbed a large dark brown mink which had enjoyed a substantial meal at the duck's expense. Mink, which are related to our weasel and stoat, are recent incomers to many parts of Britain. Originally hailing from North America, many were bred on farms to supply the fur trade. Inevitably some escaped and an even larger number were set free by extremist animal rights protesters. Those animals bred in the wild very successfully and, for the past 30 years, have increased in number and spread throughout our countryside. Much larger than its native cousins, a fully grown mink may measure up to 18 inches with another eight or nine inches of bushy tail. It always lives near water and its diet will often contain waterbirds, frogs, voles and small fish. It hunts by scent and will pursue its prey both by night and by day.

88. Several Thousand Vicious Mink Released By Animal Rights Group

ANIMAL ATTACK FILES from The Times, UK Wildlife at risk as 6,000 mink are set free Thursday, August 10, 1998 BY ADRIAN LEE THE great mink hunt was under way yesterday after animal rights extremists released thousands of the vicious killers from a fur farm. Police warned people living within five miles of Ringwood, Hampshire, to keep pets indoors and said that the area was facing a wildlife disaster. It was estimated last night that more than 3,000 mink - one of the animal kingdom's most ferocious predators - were still loose. As householders reported the first attacks on cats and dogs, farmers were organising mink hunts and a team of trappers was trying to contain the carnage. Experts said that birds and small farm animals were also at risk. A kestrel and an owl at a bird sanctuary near Crow Hill Farm have already fallen victim, but at one farm Suzy, a Jack Russell owned by Elizabeth Wiseman, protected 1,000 piglets by killing six mink. The Animal Liberation Front claimed responsibility for the release of the mink, which happened in the early hours of Saturday. Cages containing about 6,000 were opened and holes cut in perimeter fences. The RSPCA condemned the release and animal welfare groups said the ALF operation was a damaging own goal because many of the mink, which were bred in captivity for export to the United States, Scandinavia and Russia, would die of starvation.

About Us Field Projects How You Can Help Publications ... Mink Mink
© Cal. Academy of Sciences/Gerald and Buff Corsi The mink ( Mustela vison ) is a member of the weasel family, which also includes skunks, otters, and wolverines. They are perhaps best know for their dark brown fur, which turns white at the chin and runs to black at the tips of their tails. They have long, slender torsos atop short legs. Full-grown females are usually 17 to 21 inches long and weigh 1.25 to 1.75 pounds, while full-grown males are usually 21 to 24 inches in length and weigh 2 to 3.75 pounds. Wild minks are less abundant than they were 50 years ago. The quality of their habitat has been degraded through development, stream channelization, and the drainage of wetlands. Trapping and the fur industry have also depleted wild mink populations. An average of 115,000 wild minks were killed in traps each year between 1995 and 1998, even though the mink industry has increasingly turned to raising its animals in cages (26 million caged minks were killed each year between 1995 and 1998). Minks are nocturnal animals, active from dusk to dawn. They do not hibernate during the winter, though they do sometimes stay in their dens for a day or so during snowy or cold periods. Minks travel well on both land and water, swimming as deep as 50 feet under water on one breath and reaching surface speeds of up to 1.5 miles an hour. On land, mink walk or take low bounds of 10-24 inches, which can reach speeds of up to 7.8 miles per hour.

As a kid I discovered the extinct sea mink in the Bangor Public Library in Ernest Thompson Seton’s “Lives of Game Animals.” Seton had reprinted a 1903 article from “Forest and Stream Magazine” written by manly Hardy of Brewer, Maine who handled pelts with his father who was in the fur trade from 1830-1860. He described the sea mink as being twice the size of the “woods mink” with coarse reddish brown fur and being extremely fat. Their last stronghold was in Penobscot Bay (mostly on Swans and Marshall Islands).
As a young naturalist, I was disappointed that neither pictures in books nor artists’ renderings existed, and almost no one had ever heard o the sea mink. Even ten, I felt it my mission to someday recreate this mysterious animal.
Then, in the fall of 1997, as I was driving home, I at last convinced myself that I was ready to sculpt the sea mink. confident, my excitement and enthusiasm accelerated. Emotions swept over me as I felt a closeness to the sea mink whose habitat was my boyhood Penobscot haunts. My special passion for mink had encompassed all my teenage years when I raised them. Furthermore, I had spent most of my life sculpting animals - some with very limited reference materials.
As I turned into our driveway, a mink ran across the road. It was the omen that fueled me with energy and purpose to fulfill my dream. Recreating the extinct sea mink had been one of the most exciting and rewarding bronzes I’ve done. The “Sea Mink” is now visually recorded life-size for posterity.

Mustela vison
The mink is a semi-aquatic weasel. Its diet includes muskrat, fish, ducks and other small birds and rodents. It hunts at night and is seldom seen far from watercourses in the mixedwood, foothill and montane zones. The mink weighs about 1 kg (2.2 lb.) and is 65-75 cm (25-30 in.) in length. It uses musk to mark its territory; although the musk smells worse than that of a skunk, it cannot be sprayed for defense. Mating generally occurs in March and five to six young are born in May, usually in an abandoned muskrat den. Lifestyle Food Relationship Management ... Privacy Statement

Mustela vison Size: From tip of nose to base of tail approximately 40cms. The tail is a further 12cms long. Distribution: Found in most parts of mainland Britain, except the Lake District and the mountains of Scotland. Months seen: All year. Food: Waterfowl, birds, small mammals and fish. Habitat: Mostly found near rivers and lakes. Special features: The mink is an introduced species. It was brought to Britain from North America in the late 1920's to be bred for the fur trade. Since escaping it has established itself successfully in the wild. Mink have a reputation for being a bit blood thirsty, and are known to kill other animals even when they are not hungry. The photo on the left shows a mink raiding a kestrel nestbox for chicks. Mink are strongly territorial, and a male will not allow another male on its patch, although females are occasionally tolerated.
