中国再次销毁罚没象牙,不让象牙走私有藏身之地

    今天上午,中国国家林业局与海关总署在北京市野生动物救护中心共同销毁了662公斤象牙及制品,这是2014年以来,中国执法机关罚没并结案的全部非法象牙及其制品。

    国际爱护动物基金会(International Fund for Animal Welfare,简称IFAW, www.ifaw.org.cn)应邀参加了销毁仪式。“IFAW支持中国政府再次销毁罚没象牙。中国政府再次向全世界展现了打击非法象牙贸易的坚定决心,”IFAW亚洲区总代表葛芮表示,“这662公斤象牙的罚没和结案说明中国政府包括国家林业局、海关总署和森林公安在内的多部门的一系列执法合作取得了显著成效。特别是“眼镜蛇行动”系列执法行动有效的震慑了国内外从事非法野生动物贸易的犯罪分子。”

Four of the five Amur (aka Siberian) tigers released last year in the Russian Far East have adapted successfully to life in the wild.
