The warning was issued in a report by the Western Gray Whale Advisory Panel (WGWAP), a scientific expert committee convened by the International Union for the Conservation of Nature to study the impacts of oil and gas projects on the whales.[1] Remaining Western Gray Whales, numbering only around 130, feed in the summer almost exclusively adjacent to new oil and gas projects offshore northeast Sakhalin Island.

Kenya Wildlife Service (KWS) rangers arrested two suspected poachers and one middleman from their hideout in the park, and recovered two AK-47 rifles and 38 rounds of ammunition. The middleman had already sold off the tusks to other dealers in the illegal ivory trade network.

“Since the one-off ivory sales from southern Africa countries late last year, we have noted an unprecedented rise of elephant poaching incidents in Tsavo,” says Jonathan Kirui, Tsavo Assistant Director.

“Apparently, the last lousy idea of the Bush Administration was to legitimize commercial whaling in the 21st century.  It's unbelievable, and fundamentally un-American. We should be encouraging Japan, Iceland and Norway to end whaling, not cooking up deals to help it continue,” said Patrick Ramage, Global Whale Program Director for the International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW --www.ifaw.org)  

Longtime Bush Administration appointee Dr. William Hogarth currently serves as U.S.

The three former sales totaled an estimated 60 tons (55 tonnes) of ivory. According to media reports, approximately USD $7MIL was yielded as a result by these three countries combined. This is merely a fraction of what such amounts of raw ivory would garner in Asian markets.

Both China and Japan have been approved as trading partners for this ivory and are known to be among the world’s largest illegal ivory markets.

The birds were seized by the local road police. The Gyrfalcons had been transported in a lorry of the local construction workers, the birds were then wrapped with fabric bandages with non-transparent caps on their heads – a typical “smugglers package”. The alleged owners assured the police that they had purchased the birds by chance from an unknown person in one of the villages of the Milkovo district, northern Kamchatka.
