乍得86头大象惨遭血腥屠杀

 

 

        在不到一周的时间里,盗猎者在乍得境内疯狂屠杀了86头大象,其中33头是已经怀孕的母象。

        这些大象在靠近乍得与喀麦隆的交界处被猎杀,牠们的象牙已被砍走。这是继2012年初以来最肆虐的屠杀狂潮,去年,乍得和苏丹的盗猎者在短短几周内猎杀了喀麦隆包巴恩吉达国家公园(Bouba Ndjida National Park)内多达650头大象。“我们完全震惊了!”国际爱护动物基金会(International Fund for Animal Welfare ,简称IFAW,www.ifaw.org.cn) 法国及非洲法语地区代表Céline Sissler-Bienvenu说,“非洲中部地区的大象仍在被肆无忌惮的偷猎者围杀。猎杀大象只是为了满足冷酷血腥的象牙交易需求,这次对包括怀孕母象在内的86头大象的屠杀就是证明。”

IFAW祝贺CITES通过白鳍鲨保护决议

 

        今天,《濒危野生动植物种国际贸易公约》(CITES)第16届缔约国大会通过了进一步保护白鳍鲨的决议,此举得到了国际爱护动物基金会(International Fund for Animal Welfare,简称IFAW,www.ifaw.org.cn)的好评。

         “我们很高兴看到CITES缔约国已经认识到了目前白鳍鲨的困境。”IFAW德国国家代表  Ralf Sonntag博士说,“今天将白鳍鲨物种列入CITES附录II的决定,将有助于规范鱼翅的国际贸易,并确保以生物学的可持续方式对鱼翅贸易进行管理。”

        “白鳍鲨受到‘鱼翅贸易’和过度捕捞的严重威胁,其数量也因此已经减少了60%到70%之多。在一些地区,白鳍鲨已经被认定为‘极度濒危’了。”
