Local animal groups have now evacuated at least 300 dogs from New Orleans to Houston, where the Houston SPCA is caring for them and another 500 are expected tonight. Many were smuggled into shelters and evacuation buses by desperate New Orleans refugees fleeing the hurricane disaster. With Baton Rouge swelling under pressure from the mass inflow of refugees, Houston is now becoming the staging area for these and other animal relief operations.

During natural disasters, animals are often lost or owners are forced to leave them behind during mandatory evacuations. Local animal groups, whose own facilities have been devastated or destroyed, have requested assistance to deal with the overwhelming situation. IFAW will be teaming up with Code 3, a 78-foot self-sufficient, mobile disaster response unit, and a team from United Animal Nations (UAN) to mount the emergency relief effort.

Poaching Remains Main Threat to Tibetan Antelope

Publication Date:

The Tibetan antelope is one of the flagship species of China’s Qinghai-Tibet, China Plateau and is highly endangered. By the mid-1990s its population had plummeted, from an estimated 2 million at the turn of 20th century, to merely 75,000 animals. Tibetan antelopes, also called Chiru, are hunted for their wool – considered the finest in the world -- which is woven into garments called Shahtoosh shawls.

Every single day thousands of wild animals and animal parts – from live chimpanzees and huge ivory tusks to tiny dried seahorses – are illegally traded in cyberspace. IFAW conducted a three-month investigation which showed that, in a single week, over 9,000 live animals or products were for sale on English-language websites, chat rooms and the popular auction site eBay. At least 70% of the products were species protected by international law.

“It is very disappointing that an elephant was nearly killed by poachers within a protected nature reserve,” said Dr. Zhang Li IFAW’s Director of China, “Stronger measures must be taken to tackle wildlife poaching in the nature reserves to prevent more animals from suffering and death.”

After finding the trapped elephant, members of IFAW’s Asian elephant protection team anesthetized the calf, freed its leg from the clamp and moved it to a location where its wounds could treated by medical staff.

The Magellanic penguins were released by one of the network’s organizations, Fundacion Mundo Marino, in Argentina. More releases are expected in upcoming weeks.
