Animal relief operations start following monster typhoon in the Philippines

Today, an International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW) animal rescue team reached Tacloban, a community in the island of Leyte that bared the brunt of record-shattering Super Typhoon Haiyan (locally known as Yolanda) last Friday.

IFAW is working with local partner agency, the Philippines Animal Welfare Society (PAWS) to conduct an animal needs assessment following the disaster and deliver humanitarian and animal relief packets.

        中国海关通报了近年来侦破的两起团伙走私象牙案件。而这些象牙均是由非洲走私至中国。

        据新华社报道,经过长期侦察,中国厦门海关成功捣毁两大象牙走私团伙,查获走私象牙近12吨。

        其中一个走私团伙的主犯拥有一家合法象牙商店,但由于每年经批准销售的象牙配额有限,他通过走私获得更多象牙。这个团伙中的其他几位成员在8月份被捕,近2吨象牙被查缴。几批被查缴的象牙均被怀疑与该走私团伙有关,其中包括2011年查获的4起象牙走私案。

        经调查,另外一个走私团伙涉嫌在2012年末走私4.2吨象牙。

        本周早些时候,坦桑尼亚官方宣布,他们上周六(11月2日)从3个中国商人在达累斯萨拉姆的房子中,缴获了706根象牙。
