Endangered Amur Tiger  Released to the Wild in Far East Russia

A tigress named Zolushka (Russian for Cinderella) was successfully released to the wild by the International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW – www.ifaw.org) jointly with the Phoenix Fund, Special Inspection Tiger, A.N. Severtsov Institute of Ecology and Evolution, and the Russian Academy of Sciences.

As it happens frequently in Russia’s Far East, the Amur tigress became an orphan in the winter of 2012. Zolushka’s mother was a likely victim of poaching.

        国际爱护动物基金会(International Fund for Animal Welfare,简称IFAW,www.ifaw.org.cn)对冰岛重启捕杀长须鲸的决定表示谴责。

        冰岛唯一的捕鲸者Kristjan Loftsson 近几年在冰岛水域捕杀了280头*长须鲸,近两年来,他已经停止了长须鲸捕杀,但据冰岛媒体报道,Loftsson计划不久后重启捕鲸活动。

        他曾经表示在日本海啸后,与日本在鲸肉贸易上面临重重困难,因此取消了2011年和2012年的捕鲸活动。

        IFAW多年来一直与冰岛的观鲸业者共同推进观鲸产业,将其视为人道的、利润丰厚的、可以替代残忍捕鲸业的产业。

I Found A Way to help animals

Sam, 11/05/2013

This year, the International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW) Australia celebrates 30 years of finding ways to help rescue and protect animals. We’ve always been a hands-on organisation with a practical approach and a ‘roll up your sleeves’ team of people to get the job done.

So it is with great excitement and pride that we’ve launched a campaign here in Australia, one that not only showcases IFAW’s work, but also celebrates the potential we all have together to make a very real difference to individual animals, vulnerable species and their habitats.
