南非召开第十七届CITES缔约方大会:野生动物生死攸关
2016年9月24日到10月5日,第17届《濒危野生动植物种国际贸易公约》缔约方大会(CITES CoP 17)将于南非约翰内斯堡召开。参会代表做出的决定将影响诸多物种的生存,其中包括犀牛、狮子、大象、穿山甲、巴巴利猕猴和非洲灰鹦鹉。
 
“非法且不可持续的野生动物贸易对很多物种造成了极大的威胁,要解决这一问题,各国政府、非政府组织和其他利益相关方之间的国际合作至关重要。”国际爱护动物基金会(IFAW)总裁兼首席执行官、IFAW代表团领队Azzedine Downes说,“保护必须是缔约方大会上所有决策的核心。这些决策决定着很多物种的命运,所以,做决策时,我们必须依据正确的科学,遵守预防性原则,而不能以追求短期的政治和经济利益为目的。”
