Foto's: actie voor de neushoorn

Actie is dringend nodig, nu we aan de rand van de afgrond staan in een neushoorn-crisis.

Tot nu toe verloren we al 769 neushoorns in Zuid-Afrika dit jaar, en er is geen teken dat de stroperscrisis snel tot een einde zal komen. Het is erg bemoedigend om de aandacht en de samenwerking van vandaag mee te maken.

Deskundigen zijn het niet altijd eens over de beste aanpak, maar vandaag waren ze verenigd om een sterke boodschap uit te zenden door het verbranden van de ivoorvoorraden.

主要な反捕鯨団体である、動物福祉協会(AWI)、環境調査機関(EIA)、国際人道協会(HSI)、動物福祉基金(IFAW)、オーシャンケア、プロ・ワイルドライフ、そしてクジラ・イルカ保護協会(WDC)が委託した新しい世論調査によると、ドイツと英国ではアイスランドの商業捕鯨の再開に対して圧倒的多数の国民が反対しており、両国の10人中9人はアイスランドの捕鯨再開の決定に反対を表明しています。

1982年、捕鯨によりクジラの個体群が大幅に減少したため、国際捕鯨委員会(IWC)でモラトリアム案が採択され、1986年から商業捕鯨は禁止されました。それにもかかわらず、アイスランドは当初は「調査」捕鯨の一環として2003年にミンククジラの捕鯨を再開。2006年にアイスランドはミンククジラと絶滅危惧種のナガスクジラの商業捕鯨を再開しました。

Don’t forget this World Rhino Day that killing isn’t conservation

Don’t forget this World Rhino Day that killing isn’t conservation

Today we celebrate World Rhino Day, an annual celebration of the five species we know for their distinctive rough skin and horns.

Despite their tough exterior and their formidable size, all five species of rhinos are classified as Endangered under the U.S. Endangered Species Act.

Stringent action is needed urgently, as to say we are now “at the 11 hour to save the rhinos” is not an over-estimation. 

Already we have lost at least 769 rhinos so far this year in South Africa, and there is no indication that the rhino poaching crisis is coming under control. It is very encouraging to see the broad, perhaps unique range of partners coming together here.

The pictures you see of these amazing and incredibly intelligent individual animals are just four of the over two hundred chimpanzees now in the care of the staff at Chimp Haven, an IFAW grantee in Louisiana.

I think the pictures speak for themselves.

Why we're joining an international network to address climate change

Why we're joining an international network to address climate change

In the last twelve months alone, the International Fund for Animal Welfare’s animal rescue team has responded to floods in the Western US and Balkans, a cyclone in India, wildfires in Chile, drought in Pakistan, and a typhoon in the Philippines.

We have witnessed first-hand the various ways Mother Nature can wreak havoc for humans and animals alike.

The destruction left in the wake of these events has been shocking.
