从帮凶到英雄:中国应全面禁止象牙贸易

从帮凶到英雄:中国应全面禁止象牙贸易
从帮凶到英雄:中国应全面禁止象牙贸易

  中国若能全面禁止象牙贸易,则可以在其糟糕的象牙贸易记录上扳回一城。
 
  近日,中国开始实施“为期一年的象牙雕刻品临时进口禁令”。该禁令对象牙进口数量的影响非常有限,并突显出中国合法象牙贸易市场规模之小。
 
  尽管合法象牙贸易的规模很小,甚至可以忽略不计。但它却是引发并刺激大规模非法象牙贸易的罪魁祸首,并为其提供掩护。
 
  为了解象牙合法贸易,我们有必要追溯到1989年出台的《濒危野生动植物物种国际贸易公约》(CITES),该公约全面禁止了国际象牙贸易。
 
  这项象牙贸易禁令为大象这种寿命较长但繁殖缓慢的物种提供了亟需的休养生息的机会,非洲大象种群数量也因此增长。20世纪七八十年代,非洲象群曾遭受了灭顶之灾,种群数量骤减过半。

A panel of top scientists released a report slamming Japan's new whaling program

An independent expert review[i] of Japan’s new plan for whaling in the Southern Ocean, published today, failed to back the proposal for further slaughter and concluded that no more whales need to be harpooned for Antarctic research.

In today’s International Whaling Commission (IWC) report, a Panel of top scientists has concluded that Japan has not demonstrated any need to kill any more whales in the Antarctic. This is a major blow to Japan’s latest attempt to resume whaling in the Southern Ocean Whale sanctuary.
