“We expect this to be a brief delay in the full implementation of the EU seal ban. According to the EU Commission written submissions from all of the parties in the court case are due by Sept. 7th and an oral hearing will likely be held shortly thereafter to determine whether the suspension in implementing the ban should remain or not,” said Adrian Hiel, IFAW EU Communications Officer.

Condemnation of Namibia’s Commercial Seal Hunt

Publication Date: 
Don, 07/15/2010

“Namibia cannot provide a reasonable scientific justification for its annual seal hunt,” said Jason Bell-Leask, Director IFAW Southern Africa (IFAW – www.ifaw.org).

“It is not even commercially viable as the price of pelts has dropped year by year and more and more countries are banning the sale of seal products – most significantly the European Union which, in May 2009, voted overwhelmingly to forbid the sale of seal products,” he said. That ban goes into effect next month.

Controversial whaling proposal fails at global meeting

Publication Date: 
Mit, 06/23/2010

“Under a cloud of corruption allegations the IWC is taking a safe course, opting for a cooling off period that protects the moratorium and other IWC conservation measures,”  said Patrick Ramage, Director of IFAW’s Global Whale Campaign. “Had it been done here, this deal would have lived in infamy.”

Plan to overturn whaling ban unveiled

Publication Date: 
Don, 04/22/2010

The proposal, if adopted, would overturn the 1986 ban on commercial whaling by authorizing whaling by Norway, Iceland, and Japan. It would also legalize Japan’s whaling in an internationally recognized whale sanctuary around Antarctica, grant new rights to Japan, Iceland, and Norway to kill whales for commercial purposes, and ignore established IWC scientific procedures for estimating sustainable whaling limits.

“Fighting to save these elephants paid off today with Parties taking note of the science demonstrating that Tanzanian elephants are still in peril,” said Jason Bell-Leask, Director IFAW Southern Africa.

“Poaching of elephants and ivory seizures are escalating not decreasing – this decision is a victory for common sense.”

Victory for elephants with rejection of Zambian proposal at CITES

Publication Date: 
Mon, 03/22/2010

Zambia amended its proposal to remove the request for a one-off sale of ivory, seeking only the downlisting of elephants from Appendix I to Appendix II.

“This is a real victory for elephants,” said Jason Bell-Leask, Director IFAW Southern Africa. “CITES Parties voted in favour of conservation, following the same logic applied to the Tanzanian proposal for a one-off sale and downlisting which was rejected earlier today.”
