L’ouragan Irma a presque totalement dévasté la région des Caraïbes. Au lendemain de la tempête de vent et de pluie qui s’est abattue sur plusieurs états, IFAW a eu l’autorisation de déployer son équipe d’experts de secours d’urgence aux animaux sur l’île de Barbuda pour prêter main forte aux habitants qui ont déjà commencé à se mobiliser pour la reconstruction.

CITES-listed species seized in Moscow

Sep 13 2017

While attending a recent conference hosted by the Moscow State Institute of International Relations I had the opportunity to chat with Mr. Marat Murtuzaliev, the Head of the Domodedovo Customs Office who said:

“15-20 years ago, animals of CITES-listed species were brought in the country by occasional smugglers earning some money by selling animals for private use. Moscow is now a transit zone and a large market for exotic animals. The total of 195 animals were confiscated in 2015, 240 animals, in 2016, and 300 animals, just during the past months of 2017.”
