《濒危野生动植物种国际贸易公约》(CITES,简称《公约》)的五十七个缔约方投票反对纳米比亚的议案,纳米比亚声称不接受规范国内象牙市场,因为这超出了《公约》的适用范围。

 

美国表示:“各缔约方强调国内市场,因为国内和国际贸易之间有明显的联系。而这之间的明显联系,没有比大象更好的例子了。我们不同意讨论国内象牙市场是超出公约适用范围的我们不同意讨论国内象牙市场是超出公约适用范围的。我们不同意讨论国内象牙市场是超出公约适用范围的.”

国际爱护动物基金会(IFAW)表示,我们很高兴能参加工作组并提供证据证明关闭国内象牙市场能起作用。

有趣的是,马拉维和莫桑比克已与南部非洲发展共同体(SADC)分道扬镳,而与博茨瓦纳和安哥拉一起呼吁关闭国内象牙市场。

“IFAW有证据证明关闭国内象牙市场的积极影响。”IFAW亚洲区总代表葛芮说,“2011年,象牙和犀牛角在中国被视为投资工具,其价格被推至历史新高。拍卖市场上的象牙销售额达到9500万美元,比2010年增加170%。2011年底,根据IFAW的信息,中国政府颁布行政命令——禁止拍卖象牙、犀牛角和虎骨。”

Conservationists were jubilant this evening as CITES voted once and for all to abandon the controversial Decision Making Mechanisim (DMM) for a process to trade in ivory.

While the decision became a nail-biter in the final moments, those wanting to end any continued consideration for ongoing debate about possible future ivory trade were rewarded with a satisfying finish.
