Japan’s government-sponsored whaling fleet is currently in the Southern Ocean Sanctuary, where it is hunting a self allocated quota of more than 900 whales. The Southern Ocean Sanctuary is a marine preserve established in 1994 to protect whales from commercial whaling in the waters surrounding Antarctica.

The passenger, from the Democratic Republic of Congo, was standing in the nothing-to-declare customs line at the Beijing Capital International Airport, when the surprise inspection was conducted. 

Elephants are protected under an Appendix I listing of CITES (Convention on the International Trade of Endangered Species) law, with international trade for commercial purposes being strictly prohibited. However, since 1997, several CITES decisions have resulted in Appendix II listings for some populations, meaning certain trade is permitted with special permits from CITES.

Elephant poaching pandemic featured in latest National Geographic

Publication Date: 
Mit, 02/21/2007
Entitled “Ivory Wars: The Last Stand in Zakouma,” the piece highlights the story of one mother elephant tagged “Annie” and her travels through and outside of Zakouma NP, in search of food and water sources. Annie was radio-collared and subsequently tracked until her demise to poachers only a few months later.
 
The danger affecting the elephants of this area is not specific to Zakouma NP, but rather to the region as a whole, and especially the periphery of the park which is outside the jurisdiction of Zakouma NP rangers.

While claims have previously been made by the CITES (Convention on the International Trade of Endangered Species) Secretariat that Japan no longer has significant involvement in the ivory trade industry, this 2.8 ton seizure clearly disproves such statements.

Beschlagnahmungen von Elfenbein lassen auf zunehmende Bedrohung von Elefanten schließen

Fast 700 Stoßzähne wurden kürzlich in Malaysia beschlagnahmt (Bildrechte: Star P

Es ist nahezu unmöglich, alle Vorfälle der Wilderei bei Elefanten genau zu erfassen oder zu dokumentieren. Die unzähligen Vorfälle und die unzähligen Regionen, in denen sie sich abspielen, machen dies schlicht zu einer Herkulesaufgabe.

Aufklärung zum Wildtierhandel im Europaparlament

Der MEP Bas Eickhout, der Autor und andere bei der IFAW-Veranstaltung „Think Twi

Als ich beim IFAW ankam, war ich auf vieles gefasst. Immerhin ist der IFAW eine Organisation, die Artenschutzprojekte in jeder Ecke der Welt betreibt und weltweite Kampagnen auf die Beine stellt. Damit im Hinterkopf machte ich mich natürlich schon darauf gefasst, dass meine tägliche Arbeit einiges an Aufregendem für mich bereithalten würde.

Nicht in meinen wildesten Träumen hätte ich mir allerdings ausgemalt, dass ich irgendwann einen ausgestopften Leoparden durch die Gänge des Europaparlaments schieben würde -und doch genau so kam es.

Blickpunkt Deutschland: Kampagne gegen den illegalen Handel mit Elfenbein im Internet

Fre, 10/14/2011

Mein erstes Kuscheltier als Kind war ein Plüsch-Elefant. Jetzt gehören Elefanten immer noch zu meinen Lieblingstieren. Vor einigen Jahren hatte ich die Chance im Addo Elefanten-Nationalpark in Südafrika wild lebende Elefanten zu erleben. Seitdem bin ich noch mehr fasziniert von diesen intelligenten Tieren, die in engen sozialen Beziehungen zusammen leben.

Publication Date: 
Mon, 01/29/2007
The rhinos, female calves nicknamed Manasi and Roje, were rescued from the floodwaters that annually spill over the banks of the Brahmaputra River. The pair, both three years old, were rescued in the summer of 2004 and rehabilitated at the Center for Rehabilitation and Conservation (CWRC). CWRC is located near Kaziranga National Park, in North East India, and was founded in 2001 through a collaboration between WTI, IFAW and the Assam Forest Department.

South African Government Delays the Return of Taiping 4 Gorillas

Publication Date: 
Mon, 12/11/2006
The return was stopped by the Department of Science and Technology 36 hours before the gorillas were due to return to Cameroon early Wednesday morning 13th of December.
&nbsp;
"We understand that in terms of CITES, South Africa, as the recipient state of the four gorillas that were confiscated in Malaysia, does not have the authority to re-export the animals, as the question of the placement of the animals rests with the Management Authority of the state of confiscation" said Christina Pretorius.
