    Default pesticide threatening african ecosystem and image use

    Hello (2nd try at posting),

    I have gotten a request to use some of my lion images for a cause:

    a pesticide called furadan that is threatening
    the entire african ecosystem. The poison is being used by local farmers
    who are losing livestock to lions. They poison the carcasses with
    furadan which is a potent neurotoxin, and scavenger or predator that
    consumes the carcass is doomed to a painful inhumane death.

    Does anyone know about this pesticide or the problem? I would like
    to know a little more before allowing use.

    I found this story:
