Ban using Wildlife in all Human Related Activities

Sahabat Alam Malaysia  (SAM) is sickened to the core to learn of yet another tragic death of a magnificent animal – the jaguar at the hands of a military.  The needless deaths of the jaguar, gorilla Harambe, alligator killing in Disney resort in Orlando, Florida lions in Chile zoo and countless other exploited wild animals have sparked an international outrage, yet  exploitation of wild animals go on.

SAM condemns the incident following the lethal shooting of a jaguar urging for a ban on the showcasing of semi-domesticated animals whether to glorify the military, the Olympics, use in adverts or any human activity.

What kind of values is the Olympic committee trying to portray.  Is their display of such an elegant and graceful animal a show of power and dominance over a lesser creature?  To drug a beautiful animal, have it on chains and displayed  like  a trophy without any regard of what wild animals may be capable of doing is unthinkable.

CAP calls for a #BetterDigitalWorld 2017

CAP calls for a #BetterDigitalWorld in ensuring the safety of internet users in conjunction with this year’s Consumers World Day theme as proposed by Consumers International, “Consumer Rights in the Digital Age”.

In the digital world today, everything is at the tip of our fingers. However, do we as consumers ensure the safety of our “wellbeing” in the digital world? Over the years, there were many cases from online fraud, data stealing to becoming hubs for immoral activities despite the growing efforts from the government and bodies to ensure optimal cyber security.
