Going up in Smoke – Hong Kong to Destroy 30 Tonnes of Ivory

This press release has been amended on 24th January 2014

Conservationists have hailed Hong Kong’s decision to incinerate 30 tonnes of its stockpiled illegal ivory in the next 24 months.

“Following hot on the heels of mainland China pulverizing six tonnes of ivory in early January, this decision by Hong Kong SAR is one to be celebrated,” said Grace Gabriel, Asia Regional Director of IFAW (International Fund for Animal Welfare – www.ifaw.org).

Zuid-Afrikaanse versie van e-Bay verrassende bondgenoot in strijd voor dierenwel

Terwijl we door de straten van Pretoria in Zuid-Afrika scheurden, zette Smaragda Louw van de organisatie ‘Beauty Without Cruelty’ het doel van ons volgende bezoek uiteen.

Junk Mail is het grootste online advertentiemedium van Zuid-Afrika, vergelijkbaar met e-Bay. De op drie na grootste advertentiecategorie, net zo groot als die van huishoudelijke artikelen en onroerend goed, is die waarin dieren te koop, te huur, als handelswaar of onder de rubriek ‘overig’ worden aangeboden.

波斯尼亚 一只狗走在城市的街道上

        在波斯尼亚,联合国开发计划署(下称UNDP)召集各个社区的负责人,在他们的帮助下,总结出每个社区最关心的安全问题。令人吃惊的是,UNDP发现有好几个社区都认为流浪狗是危及人身安全的严重问题。

        爱狗人士一直在通过小范围的捕获-绝育-放归的方式,或者建立收容所,来对街头流浪狗数量进行控制。但是,这些方法并未奏效,人们仍然缺乏安全感。波斯尼亚需要采取别的办法。

        2013年,联合国开发计划署(UNDP)联系了国际爱护动物基金会(下称:IFAW),希望得到帮助。UNDP认为,在流浪狗管理问题上,他们所采取的社区授权方法与IFAW的方式具有相似之处。

Violent protest action has forced the evacuation of more than 100 sick or homeless dogs and cats from an animal welfare project in Johannesburg, South Africa.

CLAW (Community Led Animal Welfare) which is a project of IFAW (International Fund for Animal Welfare - www.ifaw.org) provides animal welfare support to some of South Africa’s most disadvantaged communities – its clinic premises are situated on the western side of Johannesburg which, for months,  has been disrupted by violent protests linked to land and housing disputes.
