To that end IFAW sat down with law enforcement officials from numerous EU member states and asked them, the experts, what needed to be done to better control the flow of illegal wildlife products like ivory in, out and through the EU.</p> </div> Elephants Tigers Wildlife trade Political advocacy Big Cats Elephants Rhinos Tigers CITES illegal wildlife trafficking law enforcement Other Tue, 08 Apr 2014 20:27:48 +0000 rbartlett 99839 at http://www.ifaw.org U.S. Ivory Trade: Can a crackdown on trafficking save the last titan? http://www.ifaw.org/canada/resource-centre/us-ivory-trade-can-crackdown-trafficking-save-last-titan <div class="field field-type-date field-field-date"> <div class="field-label">Publication Date:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <span class="date-display-single">Mon, 03/24/2014</span> </div> </div> </div> <div class="node-body"><p>Rampant poaching has put African elephants on the verge of extinction in the wild, and the United States (U.S.) is complicit in this crisis. Despite the best efforts of federal agencies, porous national borders, legal loopholes, and deep-seated difficulties in law enforcement make the U.S. a major market for illicit ivory. While the White House, the United Nations, and the European Union, along with other voices, are sounding alarms, bold and concrete actions have been slow in coming.</p> </div><p><a href="http://www.ifaw.org/canada/resource-centre/us-ivory-trade-can-crackdown-trafficking-save-last-titan" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Elephants Wildlife trade Elephants Other Mon, 24 Mar 2014 18:59:44 +0000 jjones 99658 at http://www.ifaw.org World of Animals Issue 17 http://www.ifaw.org/canada/node/99230 <div class="field field-type-date field-field-date"> <div class="field-label">Publication Date:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <span class="date-display-single">Mon, 02/10/2014</span> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-link field-field-woa-link"> <div class="field-label">World Of Animals Book Link:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="http://www.ifaw.org/sites/default/files/publications/woa/woa17/woa_ca/index.html" target="_blank">http://www.ifaw.org/sites/default/files/publications/woa/woa17/woa_ca/index.html</a> </div> </div> </div> <div class="node-body"><p>World of Animals Issue 17</p> </div> Elephants Elephants animal rescue tigers World of Animals Mon, 10 Feb 2014 17:49:18 +0000 rbartlett 99230 at http://www.ifaw.org Impact evaluation on ivory trade in China http://www.ifaw.org/canada/resource-centre/impact-evaluation-ivory-trade-china <div class="field field-type-date field-field-date"> <div class="field-label">Publication Date:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <span class="date-display-single">Wed, 07/24/2013</span> </div> </div> </div> <div class="node-body"><p>This Flash Report covers the highlights from an evaluation of the IFAW PSA &ldquo;Mom, I have teeth&rdquo;. The core message of the PSA is to make people aware that ivory (in Chinese &ldquo;elephant teeth&rdquo;) comes from dead elephants. The campaign has been running for three years in Tier 1 cities in China using outdoor, print, and social media channels. Rapid Asia carried out the evaluation of the PSA to determine its impact in terms of building awareness, influencing attitudes and potentially changing behavior.</p> </div> Elephants Elephants China elephants Other Wed, 24 Jul 2013 18:07:03 +0000 rbartlett 95991 at http://www.ifaw.org
