Chasse à la baleine : la saison est ouverte en Islande

En Islande, la saison de la chasse à la baleine a bel et bien commencé. Les premiers baleiniers ont pris la mer cette nuit pour harponner des rorquals communs, la deuxième plus grande espèce de baleines au monde.

USFWSとニューヨーク州が野生生物保護団体の協力を得て、密猟の危機と象牙取引の認知度向上へ

米国では今日、アメリカ合衆国魚類野生生物局(USFWS)とニューヨーク州に押収された違法象牙1トン以上が破壊されました。

タイムズスクエアでは、集まった数千人の支援者が見守る中で、未加工の象牙、象牙のアクセサリ、彫刻、宝飾品やその他様々な装飾品が粉砕され、アフリカゾウや世界各地の多数の種の存続を脅かす野生生物犯罪を許さない、という明確なメッセージを発信しました。

Iceland’s fin whaling season begins

Iceland’s fin whaling season has begun with the first whaling boats heading out to sea overnight to train their harpoons on the second largest species of whale.

Iceland’s lone whaling crusader, Kristjan Loftsson, usually begins fin whaling on or around the country’s National Day on June 17 but has been delayed this year, apparently due to a strike by veterinary inspectors.

This year’s catch limit for fin whaling is 154. Last year Iceland’s whalers took 137 fin whales.
