两名中国公民因持有象牙被捕

        《2013肯尼亚野生动物保护和管理法案》刚刚颁布,就有两名中国公民因持有象牙接连被逮捕,而这两起案件先后在两天内发生。

        在新的法案下,如果这两名男子被定罪,他们将面临巨额罚款和牢狱之灾。

         “从前对于持有象牙的处罚是最高3.5万美元(约合21万人民币)的罚款,在象牙高额的利益诱惑前,这种处罚不足以形成威慑。新的法案提高了对濒危物种相关犯罪的处罚力度。”国际爱护动物基金会(International Fund for Animal Welfare,简称IFAW,www.ifaw.org)东非项目负责人Steve Njumbi说。

《争议之角》-评犀角贸易的致命代价

        一项针对合法和非法犀牛角市场经济学报告的研究发现,通过合法化犀牛角市场以减少犀牛偷猎将产生无法预估的后果。

        2013年底,受国际爱护动物基金会(International Fund for Animal Welfare,简称IFAW,www.ifaw.org.cn)之托,Economists at Large组织发布报告《争议之角》,对各种犀牛角贸易经济学正式和非正式的研究进行了评估。

         “他们的结论是,将犀牛角贸易合法化并不一定会减少对犀牛的偷猎。”IFAW南非地区总代表Jason Bell说道,“由于这种不确定性,就尝试将这种贸易合法化实在过于铤而走险。”

When a risk becomes reality

When a risk becomes reality

A very difficult day for our team; this morning we located a group of five elephants very close to our central base.

Our team left on foot backed up by helicopter.

We anaesthetized the first elephant from the ground.

He continued advancing forward, making his way through the extremely dense vegetation. We lost sight of him for several minutes.

By the time we found him, he had fallen into a swamp.

The vet intervened immediately; he administered the antidote to wake him up, and carried out electric shocks, all in vain.
