Die Robbenjagd ist grausam und unnötig

 

Mit finanzieller Unterstützung der Regierung geht die kommerzielle kanadische Robbenjagd in die zweite Phase: Morgen eröffnet das Fischereiministerium (DFO) vor der Küste Neufundlands und Labradors die Jagd auf Sattelrobben. Im Norden des Sankt-Lorenz-Golfs darf seit gestern wieder gejagt werden. Der IFAW (Internationaler Tierschutz-Fonds) ist mit einem Team vor Ort, um die Jagd zu dokumentieren.

Spotlight Africa: A close shave with spear heads for a Kenyan jumbo

The Kenya Wildlife Service and the International Fund for Animal Welfare recently collared nine elephants to track their movements that will assist in mapping out elephant migratory corridors and equip the park's management to mitigate human-elephant conflict and mount security operations against poachers. By chance, one of the elephants was found with two spearheads embedded in its body--a case of either conflict with humans or poaching.

Schermprint van de app

Een nieuwe app voor de iPad en iPhone combineert wetenschap en technologie om bedreigde Noord-Atlantische walvissen, Noordkapers, te redden. De app doet dit door middel van het verminderen van botsingen tussen walvissen en grote schepen die langs de oostkust van Noord Amerika varen. De gratis ‘Walvis Alert’ app is het resultaat van de inspanning van een breed netwerk dat bestaat uit de overheid, universiteiten, de particuliere sector en het IFAW (www.ifaw.org).
