Injured, severely dehydrated, and terribly distressed ... orphaned elephant calves are so vulnerable, especially when they are left motherless by cruel poachers. They urgently need our care and comfort so they can grow up to be strong and healthy, and ready for the wild.

Help us care for them and all the animals that need us over the Christmas season.

Contrary to popular belief, no ivory is needed for business

Contrary to popular belief, no ivory is needed for business

Today, 8 December 2017 the European Commission closes its online consultation to find out what EU citizens and other stakeholders think about the ivory trade. Currently, ivory is being sold online, in markets and in auction houses throughout the European Union. An opinion poll conducted across 16 countries by IFAW earlier this year indicates that 90% of people are not interested in buying ivory products, and close to 65% said they would support a full ban on the trade of all ivory in the EU.

Imported teaser text: 

Australian auction house Leonard Joel has set a groundbreaking example by not trading any raw or worked ivory anymore. Contrary to popular belief, no downturn in sales has been observed in the past year, and no staff have lost their jobs. IFAW hopes other auction houses will follow this inspiring example and urges the EU to introduce stronger legislation to ban the trady in ivory and save elephants as they are worth more alive.

成功康复的普通鵟,携GPS追踪器回家

今天,北京猛禽救助中心(Beijing Raptor Rescue Center,简称BRRC)在北京鹫峰国家森林公园成功放飞了两只普通鵟,它们是国家二级保护动物。

2017年10月12日,猛禽康复师将受伤的普通鵟接到BRRC。据康复师周蕾介绍: “这只普通鵟是被救助人发现后喂养了几天才联系到BRRC的,刚到BRRC的时候看起来很虚弱,右腿有点瘸而且肿胀,腿上栓着绳子。同时,经进一步的X光检查,在其体内还发现了一颗弹珠,应是被人非法射伤。经过在BRRC一个多月的康复和治疗,现这只普通鵟各项指标都已达标,可以放归野外了。”

另一只普通鵟是2017年11月6日被接到BRRC。“刚到BRRC的时候,这只普通鵟口腔内有血,胸部和龙骨突处都有伤,羽毛有轻微的磨损。现在已达到康复放归标准,可以放归到野外了。”

为了更好的监测和追踪放飞猛禽的生存情况,此次放飞的两只猛禽都会佩戴GPS追踪器;监测数据除了能够帮助康复师在未来更好地进行猛禽康复和治疗工作,这些数据也具有科研意义,比如帮助科研人员更好地了解猛禽的迁徙时间和路线。

Meet Wira – a little dog with a big heart benefiting from our Bali dogs project

When Ida Bagus Cakra found Wira, he knew something was wrong. The puppy’s feet were splayed out, and she was the runt of the litter. She was in desperate need of medical attention.
