Kenya Ivory Seizure Highlights US Crackdown  on Illegal Wildlife Trade

Less than two days after US President Barack Obama announced a crackdown on illegal wildlife trade, the seizure of nearly 1.5 tonnes of ivory in Mombasa, Kenya has highlighted the need for an urgent response to a global calamity.

The ivory, a mix of worked and raw ivory was found concealed in a shipping container marked as holding dried fish. The container was intercepted at Mombasa Port. According to Kenya law enforcement officials its country of origin was Uganda, and the container was en route to Malaysia.

        上周日,由国际爱护动物基金会(International Fund for Animal Welfare,简称IFAW,www.ifaw.org.cn)和凯德MALL•西直门共同主办的以“你好,我的野生动物朋友”为主题的大型公益展览正式落下帷幕,但同时也拉开了零售商与消费者共同抵制鱼翅、海豹等海洋野生动物制品贸易的序幕。

        在全球经济一体化的今天,野生动物贸易正在成为最快、最直接的将物种逼向灭绝的因素,摧毁本已脆弱的地球生命之网。“在北极冰原上,每年都会上演世界最大规模的海洋哺乳动物大屠杀,数十万头仅有2周到3个月大的海豹宝宝刚刚断奶就被铁钩、棍棒残酷击打,剥去皮毛。而鲨鱼同样难逃厄运,每年超过7300万条鲨鱼因鱼翅汤被捕杀,人们割去鱼鳍,将鲨鱼的躯干抛回大海,让牠们在痛苦中窒息而死。正是由于人类的商业剥削和贸易,一个个动物生命惨遭虐杀,一个个种群正在走向濒危和灭绝。”IFAW中国项目主任华宁女士说。
