“Wild tigers once numbered around 100,000 across Asia, today there are fewer than 3,500,” said Grace Ge Gabriel, IFAW’s Asia Regional Director. “Tigers face threats from loss of habitat and prey. But the greatest threat to wild tigers is poaching to supply an illegal trade driven by the demand for tiger parts and products.”

On January 12, a 7.0 earthquake – the largest in 200 years – rocked the small island nation, reducing buildings to rubble, and demolishing the capital, Port-au-Prince. Tens of thousands of people are feared dead and countries such as the United States have pledged troops and aid to the Caribbean nation. The international response to the devastation has been the largest outpouring of support since Asia’s 2004 tsunami.

“Apparently the sky’s the limit when it comes to bailing out special interests like commercial seal clubbing.  Canadian politicians seem to have no problem spending $10 million in tax payer dollars in a desperate attempt to save a dying $1 million industry” said Sheryl Fink, Senior Researcher with the International Fund for Animal Welfare. Statistics from a Department of Fisheries and Oceans report shows that the landed value of the 2009 seal hunt was the lowest in recent memory.

Battered and Bruised – Abused Elephants

The elephants were confiscated in April 2009 after an inspection by the Zimbabwe National Society for the Protection of Cruelty against Animals (ZNSPCA) found cruel and torturous methods were being used to “tame and train” them for the elephant back safari industry – a popular tourist activity in Zimbabwe and elsewhere in southern Africa.

The ZNSPCA requested IFAW to step in and assist in translocating the elephants to a safe haven with a view to rehabilitating the elephants and releasing them back into the wild.

“On May 8, 2009, Sec. Salazar said that he and President Obama were fully committed to protecting polar bears, and that we must do everything we can to eliminate all threats to the species,” said Jeff Flocken, IFAW Washington, D.C. Office Director. “With this laudable action, they are making good on that commitment. By uplisting the species at the next CITES conference, the U.S. will help prevent the deaths of hundreds of polar bears killed needlessly for the commercial market.”

Recently, several Chinese cities have forged ahead with dog culls citing concerns of rabies, leaving tens of thousands of dogs brutally killed. Such slaughter would be stemmed should this law be passed.

In addition to releasing the draft animal protection law, changes regarding China’s Criminal Law were also suggested, making animal abuse a punishable offence.
