Wildlife Advocates Seek Protection for African Lions

The population and range of the African lion are in alarming decline. Over the past two decades, the number of African lions has declined by at least 48.5 percent as a result of retaliatory killings, loss of habitat and prey species, over-exploitation by recreational trophy hunters and commercial trade, disease, and other human-caused and natural factors. Today, there are fewer than 40,000 African lions remaining—most of them in just a handful of countries. Of the remaining populations, two-thirds are neither protected nor viable over the long run.

Rampant elephant poaching leaves a bloody stain in the Congo Basin

The International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW – www.ifaw.org) condemns violence against humans and animals and calls on the European Union to take action to support African countries like Chad which are asking for help to save these endangered animals.

Five of the elephants were killed in the area of Mayo Lemié (near Nanguigoto) and the remaining 15 were killed in the Logone area of southern Chad.

The lucrative illegal trade in ivory continues to kill thousands of elephants in Africa every year.

IFAW welcomes early halt to slaughter of whales in Antarctica and calls on Japan to end its whaling for good

Publication Date: 
Mit, 02/16/2011

In November last year, in defiance of international opposition and several international laws, Japan's whaling fleet set off for the pristine Southern Ocean Sanctuary with the intention of training its harpoons on around 1,000 whales.

Despite a global ban on commercial whaling, Japan has continued to hunt whales under the loophole of 'scientific whaling', yet while the meat is put on sale in restaurants and supermarkets, little science has been produced from the slaughter of these animals.
