Alors que l'Afrique centrale entre dans la saison sèche, tristement synonyme de braconnage, IFAW exposera pour la première fois, au 17ème festival de la photo animalière de Montier en Der, les photos de sa mission d'urgence dans le Parc national de Boubandjida, au Cameroun, en février 2012.

Thanks to International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW) supporters, year after year we have been able to take media and decision makers to the ice as we document the cruelty of commercial seal hunt in Canada. 

Now, many leading Europeans have joined IFAW in defending the European ban on products from the commercial seal hunt in Canada as the Canadian government pursues a challenge to the ban’s legality according to the rules of the World Trade Organisation.

VIDEO: partnering with UNDP to help dogs in Bosnia

Tue, 11/19/2013

Together with the United Nations Development Program a small IFAW team embarked on an exciting new journey in Bosnia helping Communities to solve the issues they have with roaming dogs for themselves.

It is the first time a participatory approach is being used in such an instance, and the first results tell us we are on the right track.

See these two videos to get an impression of the first Workshop we held in Bosnia.

The process will continue over next months and we will keep you updated.

        周二, 在桑给巴尔岛的一个货物集装箱内,稽查人员发现被藏匿的数吨象牙。

        据报道,这些象牙被塞进数个塑料编织袋中,并谎报内容物为贝壳,每个编织袋重达50公斤。查获的总重量尚未公开,但桑给巴尔警方官员称其总量达到了数吨。报道指出,两名涉案人员——一位报关员和一位商人均已被逮捕。

        坦桑尼亚当局开展打击行动旨在终止本国猖獗的盗猎以及象牙走私所带来的危机,而此次查缴正值打击行动开展期间。(桑给巴尔岛是坦桑尼亚的半自治地区。)

        上周,坦桑尼亚警方逮捕了三名中国商人,这三位商人被发现藏有706件象牙。一周前,路障检查时,警方在汽车行李箱中发现被藏匿的象牙89根。
