- Bald eagle threat: Lead ammo left behind by hunters
By MARY ESCH, Associated Press - Sunday Jul 16, 2017
ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — Bald eagles have made a remarkable recovery across the United States since the pesticide DDT was banned 45 years ago, but the majestic birds are still dying from another environmental poison: lead from bullets and shotgun pellets in wildlife carcasses left behind by hunters.In New York, which has been a leader in the bald eagle restoration in the Northeast for four decades, state wildlife researchers have documented a growing number of eagle deaths from lead poisoning in recent years.In New York, lead poisoning was confirmed as the cause of death in 38 of 336 bald eagles brought to a Department of Environmental Conservation lab near Albany between 2000 and 2015, said state wildlife biologist Kevin Hynes, who does the necropsies."Eagles are doing very well, their recovery is a great success story largely supported by excise taxes paid by hunters" on lead ammunition and guns, said Lawrence Keane, senior vice president of the National Shooting Sports Association.Virginia wildlife advocate Clark said that rather than a ban on lead ammunition, his group is seeking a public education campaign so hunters are aware of the problem and how they can help.
- Travel books: Breaking down Hong Kong’s best
By Jill K. Robinson - Thursday Jun 29, 2017
In “Hong Kong Precincts” (Hardie Grant Books, 240 pages, $29.99), author Penny Watson skillfully breaks down the 15 precincts (including Macau) and its “best shops, eateries, bars and other hangouts” to feature the wealth of Hong Kong’s cross-section of experiences from markets that sell everything from plastic toys to pigs’ ears, to modern bars and boutiques. Even better, interviews with local Hongkongers (including a mixologist, sommelier, interior designer, celebrity chef and diamond dealer) highlight favorite haunts and tips for enjoying the best in town. Street Markets (Central): Flapping fish, tubs of tofu and mountains of mushrooms: not far from the city’s flashiest retail district is an open-air food market that has operated since 1841. Rabbithole (Wan Chai): Dim lighting, industrial tables and understated décor only serve to heighten the most important piece of apparatus in this hidey-hole café — the coffee machine. Under Bridge Spicy Crab Restaurants (Causeway Bay): When typhoons hit Hong Kong in days of yore, fishing boats would ride out the storm in Causeway Bay’s typhoon shelter. The shelters have given way to luxury yachts and party junks, but the crab culture lives on in a motley strip of open-all-hours restaurants on the corner of Lockhart Road and Canal Road West.
