“IFAW is grateful to eBay for taking this important step forward for elephant conservation. By setting the bar with a global ban on ivory, eBay is proving to be an example for both governments and online dealers to also take a stand on one of today’s most critical wildlife issues – Internet trade,” said Barbara Cartwright, IFAW Campaigns Manager.

Rangers had trailed the poacher and his accomplice for 17 hours on foot, according to area warden Josphat Erupe. “We noticed one poacher on top of a tree but he jumped down and vanished. We only became aware that there was a second man when he opened fire at our rangers from behind the tree but he was shot and killed in the ensuing battle.”

According to unnamed sources in KWS, elephant poaching rose by over 60 per cent in Kenya from 2007 to 2008.

Outgoing Fisheries and Agriculture Minister, Einar K Gudfinnsson, recently granted commercial whaling quotas of up to 150 endangered fin whales and 100 minke whales a year for the next five years. Iceland’s new Fisheries Minister, Steingrimur J Sigfusson, today announced these catch allowances would remain for one year instead of five, and despite only a limited domestic market for minke whales and no domestic market for fin whales.

IFAW opposes whaling because it is cruel, unnecessary and unsustainable.

"For years, the Canadian government has been claiming that the commercial seal hunt is economically important to the province of Newfoundland and Labrador. With the value of the 2008 seal hunt the lowest in recent memory, and the provincial economy at an all-time high, this clearly is no longer the case," Sheryl Fink, Senior Researcher at IFAW.

Publication Date: 
Mié, 12/03/2008

A report released today by the International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW), Ocean Noise: Turn it down, showed that, in recent decades, ocean noise created by human activities has risen dramatically, posing a major threat to many marine mammals. Noise from commercial shipping, sonar, seismic exploration by the oil and gas industry, off-shore construction and recreational activities, is contributing to a progressively more disorientating environment for the world's cetaceans.
