New report links the illegal wildlife trade to global security

The illegal wildlife trade is not only detrimental to many of the world’s endangered species, but also poses a genuine threat to national and global security, a new report by the International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW – www.ifaw.org) asserts.

With today’s release of the report Criminal Nature: The Global Security Implications of The Illegal Wildlife Trade, IFAW is one of the first organizations to publicly link the escalating poaching crisis to global security.

3年ぶりにアイスランドで捕殺されたナガスクジラ、国内外の非難を浴びながら陸に上げられる

アイスランド唯一の捕鯨業者は、3年間の中断を経て、絶滅危惧種のナガスクジラに銛を打ち込む残酷な行為を再開しました。

クリスチャン・ロフソンの船2隻は日曜日午後にレイキャビックの港を出航し、そのうち1隻が今季最初となるナガスクジラを側面に括りつけてクヴァルフィヨルズの捕鯨根拠地に到着しました。アイスランド人が大半を占める約40人が、その到着を抗議の声で迎えました。

ナガスクジラ肉の一部が日本でドッグフードに加工されたことが判明する中で、世界中の100万人以上の人々がアイスランドのナガスクジラ肉の取引に反対するオンライン請願に署名しました。

国際動物福祉基金(IFAW-www.ifaw.org)はナガスクジラ猟の再開は残酷で不必要だと非難しています。

IFAW英国事務局長のロビー・マースランドはこう話します。「こうした画像を目にして、絶滅が危惧されているこの動物が、誰も欲しがらない食肉用に切り刻まれるためだけに苦しみながら死んでいったことを思うと、大変悲しいです。」
