        2013年,超过41吨象牙被查获,这是近25年来查获数量最多的一年。

        国际爱护动物基金会(International Fund for Animal Welfare,简称IFAW)表示,不管怎样,现在每年有多达50,000头大象因象牙需求而被屠杀,这一事实已经震惊了世界各国的领导人,使其不再懈怠,并采取行动来制止盗猎和象牙走私。

        “近年来,象牙盗猎已经失控,大规模的象牙查缴案件(那些总重量超过800公斤的案件)日益成为常态,而不再是特别事件,” IFAW反对野生动物贸易项目主任Kelvin Alie说。

       “到目前为止,我们今年已掌握的查缴案件高达18起,报道的罚没额合计41.5吨。之前最引人注目的是2011年,当时是有14起大数量的查缴,估计总罚没量为24.3吨。”

冰岛颁布五年捕鲸配额

2013年12月16日,冰岛 雷克雅维克

        据今天(周一)公布的民意调查显示,仅有3%的冰岛人表示他们经常吃鲸肉。而据冰岛政府刚刚颁布的新捕鲸配额,允许在今后的五年内每年猎杀229头小须鲸和154头濒危的长须鲸。

        一项由国际爱护动物基金会(International Fund for Animal Welfare,简称IFAW)委托Gallup展开的针对冰岛人的调查显示,只有3%的冰岛人在过去的12个月中购买过6次或6次以上鲸肉。这项调查还显示,从没有买过鲸肉的冰岛人占75%,而这一数据在女性中的比例是82%,在18-24岁的青年中占86%。

        让IFAW失望的是,冰岛政府不但没有结束这项过时且毫无经济价值、既伤害鲸类也有损冰岛人的做法,反而通过颁布配额的方式继续支持冰岛仅剩的捕鲸人-商人Kristjan Loftsson开展捕鲸活动。

Top ten heroic animal rescues of 2013

IFAW has led or helped with dozens of animal rescues around the world, from the care of the tiniest orphan babies to the logistical nightmare that is an elephant transfer.

The past year was as diverse—and dramatic—as any in the rescues we accomplished.
