La science ne permet pas de justifier un abattage massif de phoques gris

Le Comité sénatorial permanent des pêches et des océans du Canada a publié aujourd’hui un rapport dans lequel il recommande de procéder à un abattage massif de 70 000 phoques gris dans le golfe du Saint-Laurent. Le Fonds international pour la protection des animaux (IFAW) affirme qu’un tel abattage est injustifié d’un point de vue scientifique, qu’il serait contraire à l’éthique, et très risqué.

        上周六,香港查获非法走私象牙3.81吨,是香港近年来最大宗象牙走私案,也是近两年以来,中国所截获数量最大的一批象牙。同时,这也表明过去的24个月是近年来对大象杀戮最为严重的时期。

        香港官方昨日表示,此次共截获近4吨象牙,分别装在标有废塑料和红腰豆的货柜中,由坦桑尼亚和肯尼亚偷运至港。

        国际爱护动物基金会(International Fund for Animal Welfare,简称IFAW,www.ifaw.org.cn)大象保护项目主任Jason Bell说:“从最近的这宗查缴案件中,我们不难看出过去的24个月对大象的杀戮是最为猖獗和严重的。”

        相较于2011年和2012年单次查缴非法象牙数量最多的案件,此次缴获的象牙数量比其分别还要多出1.5吨。1

IFAW: Grey seal cull not supported by science
