IFAW:灰海豹扑杀毫无科学依据

 

        加拿大参议院渔业及海洋委员会今日公布了一份报告,建议在圣劳伦斯湾(Gulf of St. Lawrence)对70,000头灰海豹展开大规模扑杀。国际爱护动物基金会(International Fund for Animal Welfare,简称IFAW,www.ifaw.org.cn)认为此建议极不道德,是毫无科学依据、极具风险的赌博。

        “渔业面临诸如误捕、过度捕捞等严峻问题,而海豹被当作替罪羊,来转移人们的注意力,”IFAW海豹项目主任Sheryl Fink说,“迄今,绝对没有一项科学证据建议可以通过扑杀海豹来帮助恢复鳕鱼或者其他鱼类资源数量。”

If you are following the news these days, you likely know that rhinos are in crisis.
