“Maximizing the sustainable use of the oceans and seas” is one of the key objectives of the EU Maritime Policy. “IFAW is particularly concerned that the expansion of economic activities at sea and/or in coastal areas as envisaged in the Action Plan will exponentially increase the level of pressure on cetaceans, other marine mammals and sensitive areas”, says Veronica Frank, Marine Campaigner at IFAW’s EU Office.

Japan's biggest ivory smuggler walks free as government schemes to market contraband

Japan's press reported yesterday that an unidentified "company president" who attempted to smuggle three tons of contraband ivory - the country's largest-ever illegal ivory shipment - into Osaka in August 2006 was "sentenced to a one-year suspended prison term" and fined 800,000 yen (6,723 USD) as penalty.  Japanese Customs valued the consignment at one billion yen (8.4 million USD).  The penalty imposed amounts to less than 0.1 per cent of the contraband's value.  The sentence was passed in July, but not reported until yesterday.

New rules protect public from dangerous big cats

Publication Date: 
Vie, 08/17/2007
Imagen: 
The passage of the Captive Wildlife Safety Act – which happened shortly after IFAW (International Fund for Animal Welfare - www.ifaw.org) engaged in a high-profile confiscation of 24 full-grown tigers from a suburban New Jersey home –  became necessary due to the high number of dangerous animals being purchased and shipped across state lines. As the CWSA regulations explain, “Statistics show a considerable number of injuries or deaths attributable to big cats.

IFAW Calls on Congress to Pass Haley’s Act

Publication Date: 
Mar, 07/24/2007
Imagen: 
Haley’s Act would amend the Animal Welfare Act (AWA) to prohibit direct contact between the general public and big cats, including lions, tigers, leopards, cheetahs, jaguars, cougars and hybrids.  The bill does not discourage public display of big cats in accredited zoos, or housing big cats in sanctuaries, but rather seeks to strengthen safety for the public.  It also significantly increases fines for violations of the AWA to further encourage facilities to abide by the law and treat the animals well.

In addition to bear cubs, affected species include bobcats, coyotes, porcupines, and squirrels. People encountering injured and dehydrated wildlife are asked to be careful. “Leave injured wildlife alone and call people who are trained,” said Cheryl Milham, Executive Director of  Lake Tahoe Wildlife Care. "If there's something wrong, stay at a distance, you need to know what to do with wildlife.”
 
The United States Forest Service (USFS) has planned a program of forest thinning to help protect communities and the fragile Tahoe environment.
