Six days = 4.5 Tonnes Elephant Ivory Seized in  Mombasa, Kenya

        今天,在肯尼亚蒙巴萨港,执法机构查没3吨象牙。不到一周的时间里, 仅在肯尼亚蒙巴萨港,就查缴象牙4.5吨。

        今天查没的3吨象牙被藏匿在一个标记为花生的集装箱里,上周查获的1.5吨象牙则被标记成干鱼。这两批象牙的目的地均是马来西亚。

         “很显然,肯尼亚执法机构已经下定决心大力打击走私犯罪,终止非法象牙贸易,” 国际爱护动物基金会 (International Fund for Animal Welfare, 简称IFAW,www.ifaw.org.cn) 东非地区总代表James Isiche说。

         “仅短短一周时间,执法人员就查获两批象牙,这样的成果带给我们的不止是兴奋,也有沮丧。执法人员在打击非法象牙贸易上的努力令人振奋,但如此多的象牙被查缴也显示出象牙盗猎已经失控到何种地步。”

World Court hearing of Japanese whaling case ends with hope of justice for whale

As the International Court of Justice hearing of Australia’s case against Japanese whaling in the Antarctic drew to a close today (Tuesday), the International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW) hopes it will bring an end to so-called scientific whaling and grant better protection for whales.

It may be several months before a ruling from the three-week hearing is announced, but IFAW believes the sham of scientific whaling, commercial whaling by another name, was exposed for all to see during the case.
