|UNITED NATIONS Giovanni Crociata Jersey , March 2 (Xinhua) -- The UN Children Fund ( UNICEF) on Monday said that hundreds of children seized by armed men from a village in northern South Sudan two weeks ago remain forcibly recruited as child soldiers, despite intensive efforts to locate and free them.
UNICEF said that the abduction generated fears that "they are going from the classroom to the frontline," the UN agency said in a press release, demanding their immediate release.
"UNICEF says that it now believes that the number of children might be in the hundreds -- rather than 89 as first reported," UN spokesman Stephane Dujarric said at a daily news briefing here. " In addition Gianluigi Donnarumma Jersey , adult males were also forcibly recruited during the 15 and 16 February raid."
UNICEF said that from reports it received so far it is becoming clear the children are not together in a single group, saying that some of the children, including some of the school boys, were believed to be allowed back into their village to eat with their parents and in some instances some children were allowed to go to school. They were then taken away again at night.
WASHINGTON， March 14 (Xinhua) -- Coral reefs are facing a serious bleaching crisis， but there's hope on the horizen. Scientists are using 3D-printing technology to print artificial reefs resembling the texture and architectural structure of their natural counterparts.
Fabien Cousteau， grandson of the famed ocean explorer Jacques Cousteau and founder of Fabien Cousteau Ocean Learning Center， and his team have been working on a 3D-printed reef project to replicate natural reefs in the Caribbean.
"We're experimenting with building coral out of what coral is made of，" Cousteau told science magazine Popular Mechanism.
His team conducted the experiment by putting 3D-printed reefs on the ocean floor near the Caribbean island of Bonaire.
If the fake reefs successfully trick fishes and even baby coral polyps to inhabit and multiply， this technology can be spread to rehabilitate the fragile coral reef ecosystems in other areas.
Similar experiments are in progress in many other regions.
Dutch maritime company Boskalis is working on a restoration project for Monaco and has printed six reefs to be submerged in the Monaco Larvotto Reserve. The company will then monitor these artificial reefs for two years to see how much of the marine life that occupied the natural reef returns.
"It is an interesting step forward， in terms of putting something back that is really reflective of what was there originally，" said Ruth Gates， a marine scientist at the University of Hawaii. "I think it's great."
Coral bleaching is a process in which coral colonies lose their vivid color， which happens when the water is too warm for the microscopic algae living in the organisms.
Australian scientists surveyed the Great Barrier Reef last month and surprisingly found that about a fourth of its coral has been killed off due to a massive bleaching event last year.
Scientists predicted that more than 90 percent of coral will die by 2050 even if the world could halt global warming now.
BEIJING, Sept. 22 (Xinhua) -- China has been making tremendous efforts in cracking down on international rhinoceros poaching and rhino horn smuggling Gianluca Lapadula Jersey , ahead of World Rhino Day Friday.
""Ivory and Rhino horn products dating from any historical period should be banned from public trade and auctions,"" said Ma Weidu, a renowned antique collector in China, who endorsed WildAid's latest promotional campaign on rhino protection.
""China's top-down efforts to crack down on rhino horn poaching and smuggling are admirable and effective in dimming the illegal trade,"" said Steve Blake Giacomo Bonaventura Jersey , chief representative of WildAid, an international wildlife conservation agency, in Beijing.
Rhinos around the world are endangered, primarily due to poaching due to demand for their horns. Rhino populations have plummeted 95 percent in the last 40 years. In addition to demand for rhino horn for use in medicine, there is also significant demand for collectibles carved from rhino horns.
In celebration of the seventh World Rhino Day Gerard Deulofeu Jersey , WildAid, National Geographic's Traveler magazine and the African Wildlife Foundation (AWF) launched a promotional video featuring Ma Weidu.
""Collectibles rooted in killing are valueless,"" Ma says in the video.
Since 2012, China has placed the building of a more ecologically focused society among its development priorities, with protection of fauna and flora a crucial element Gabriel Paletta Jersey , according to Blake.
From 2013 to 2016, China organized and led worldwide cooperation against rhinoceros horn smuggling, alongside international law enforcement agency, wildlife charities and various authorities worldwide.
""With more stringent legislation and law enforcement, the world's black market prices for rhinoceros horn are about one-third of what they once were Franck Kessie Jersey ,"" Peter Knights, founder and CEO of WildAid, told Xinhua last month.
All sales in rhino horn have been illegal in China since 1993, and rhino horn has been removed from the Traditional Chinese Medicine handbook. Since 2011 all rhino horn items have been banned from auction house sales as well.
""China, from its authorities to the public Fabio Borini Jersey , has been playing an important part in eradicating the brutal yet complex rhinoceros horn trade,"" Blake said.
""The end results of the illegal wildlife trade, no matter how refined in presentation, ought to be prohibited from being traded or auctioned publicly,"" said Ma Davide Calabria Jersey , who called on major international auction houses to put an end to all forms of rhino horn sales, including antiques.
""Despite the traditional appreciation of such crafts, rhino horn pieces are rarely sold at extremely high prices in China,"" Ma said.
Ma pointed out that a number of international auction hous.
