Het bezit van exotische dieren in de Verenigde Staten is een enorm probleem.

Wist u dat er meer tijgers in gevangenschap leven in de VS dan wereldwijd in het wild?

Soms zijn de plekken waar deze dieren gehouden worden vervallen, worden de dieren verwaarloosd en zijn er drastische acties nodig om hen te redden.

In dit geval ging het om een opvangcentrum waar bijna twintig gevaarlijke, wilde dieren gehouden werden. De eigenaren konden de zorg niet aan, en het IFAW en de politie moesten eraan te pas komen om de dieren in beslag te nemen.

朱朱的遗产

十八年前曾经改变了我生命历程的黑熊朱朱走了。

那是1996年的冬天,在美国做电视新闻的我接受了国际爱护动物基金会的一个任务——赴中国拍摄基金会在广东建立的黑熊养护中心开幕式。

自 94年开始揭露活熊取胆的野蛮残酷,到说服广东省政府关闭条件恶劣无比的两家熊场,当时为国际爱护动物基金会工作,后来创建亚洲动物基金的英国人谢罗便臣救助下了9只亚洲黑熊, 并在香港的政协委员,著名华侨,朱幼麟先生的老家番禺岳溪村建立了中国第一家黑熊养护中心。

Legal Dog Racing Considered in South Africa

Greyhound racing is back on the agenda in South Africa, just three years after a Government led investigation decided to abandon proposals to reintroduce the activity.

Last month, the Department of Trade and Industry tabled a new Draft National Gambling Norms and Standards bill in the Government Gazette, which includes dog racing as part of a proposed suite of gambling activities.

Sometimes, the places where some of these animals are kept can fall into disrepair, animals can suffer from neglect, and drastic actions involving law enforcement and trusted, caring partners are required.

eBay voluntarily prohibited the sale of ivory in 2009.Given the rampant poaching of African elephants for their tusks, and the large illegal ivory market, elephants haven’t had a lot to celebrate.

However, efforts to protect the species are definitely underway.
