Conservation organizations including the International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW - www.ifaw.org) are calling for new actions to end Japan’s “scientific” whaling. 
 
“Killing endangered whales for products that nobody needs is beneath the dignity of a great nation like Japan,” said IFAW Whale Program Manager Patrick Ramage.  “It’s time for Japan to put away the harpoons and join the emerging global consensus for whale conservation in the 21st century.”

Russian government asks IFAW team to assess oil spill

Earlier this week, several ships sank or ran aground during a fierce storm in the Kerch Strait, a narrow waterway linking the Black Sea and the Sea of Azov. The Volganeft-139, a tanker loaded with nearly 1.3 million gallons of oil, broke in half during the storm. It is estimated that half the freighter’s oil has spilled into the strait and has begun washing up on nearby shorelines. It continues to leak oil. Officials assessing damage have said that could be the worst environmental disaster in the region in years.

In the wake of the floods, International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW - www.ifaw.org)  has implemented an emergency plan to assist animals, which in many cases, are all that people of Tabasco have left. Help is being sent to three of the most affected municipalities: Centro, Jalpa, and Nacajuca. IFAW’s emergency plan is focused on veterinary care for farm and companion animals, as well as food distribution for both. Assistance through food, medical attention, and preventive medicine is being given to animals that are with their owners in refuges.

Animal groups rescue abandoned lions and tigers from Ohio woman

Publication Date: 
Mon, 10/22/2007
The animal rescue groups are taking the big cats under the jurisdiction of a court order. The cats were formerly owned by Diana McCourt until the USDA revoked her license and fined her. The facility lost its license, in part, from allowing dangerous photo opportunities between big cats and the public and violating existing USDA regulations. McCourt was subsequently evicted from her property and abandoned the cats. Local authorities were forced to take possession of the animals. Now the cats will be moving to permanent sanctuaries where they will receive much better care.

Indeed, IFAW believes that special interests’ attempts to repeal China’s domestic trade ban on tiger products remains the biggest threat not only to the future of the South China tiger, but to the few remaining tigers in the wild of China and in other adjacent tiger range habitats.&nbsp; The South China tiger is believed to be the “stem” species for all other tiger species and plays a significant role in the ancient Chinese culture.

The Jonah and the Whale campaign is in direct response to the Government of Japan’s intention to kill more than 1000 whales including 50 humpbacks as part of its so-called “scientific” whaling program in the Southern Ocean
