Mr. Dzoro lauded the initiative, saying it would help to curb illegal trafficking of ivory, rhino horn and other live animals such as reptiles within the region. He said, “Wildlife crime had been worsened by the current drought which has exacerbated the bushmeat trade and killed many wild animals whose trophies now lie in the wrong hands.” 

In his message, Interpol Secretary General Ronald K.

Italy temporarily bans imports of Canadian seal products

Publication Date:

Today’s announcement from Rome assured that no import licences would be granted for seal products in the coming months. In addition to the temporary ban, a legislative proposal to permanently prohibit all commerce in seal skins and seal derived products also was introduced into the Italian parliament. That proposal is supported by the government coalition and is designed to complement the existing import ban on cat and dog fur.

Italy’s fur industry makes it one of the most important markets for seal pelts in Europe.

Oil &#8220;Timebomb&#8221; Threatens Wildlife in Estonia

Publication Date:

A portion of the 20-ton oil spill, which is currently trapped under a sheet of ice, may be released when the ice melts in coming months. The thaw may put birds and other wildlife at serious risk of becoming oiled and killed.

“Because it’s covered in ice, the oil can not be cleared up immediately. In spring, when the ice begins to melt, there will be the opportunity to recover the oil. However, there is a risk that seabirds will become oiled again as the oil warms up and starts to re-distribute.

New Regulations Limit Tiger Trade

Publication Date: 
Tue, 01/31/2006

“These draft regulations are a good first step, but only address public contact with dangerous animals at licensed wildlife sanctuaries. IFAW will be working to ensure animals and people are protected at every big cat facility across the country,” said IFAW’s Josephine Martell. “In addition, it is essential that the final rules add strict enforcement protocols and penalties not included in the draft.”

Before the passage of the CWSA, it was as simple and cheap to buy a tiger cub on the Internet as it was to buy a black lab pup.

De zomer loopt ten einde, c'est La Rentrée voor Europese ambtenaren

Thu, 09/15/2011

In de meeste Franstalige gebieden wordt met ‘La Rentrée’ verwezen naar de terugkeer van ijverige en minder ijverige leerlingen naar school voor het nieuwe schooljaar.

Hier in Brussel is de betekenis iets anders. Als iemand het hier heeft over ‘La Rentrée’, dan heeft hij het waarschijnlijk over de verschillende Eurocraten, ambtenaren en parlementariërs, die na het zomerreces weer aan het werk gaan.

‘La Rentrée’ brengt een uitbarsting van energie en enthousiasme na een lome augustusmaand.
