WATCH: Rapid assessment in Philippines leads to continuation of animal rescue operations

Novembre 18, 2013

We're back in Tacloban to continue our animal rescue operations.

I'm now joined by two veterinarians and an emergency responder from our partner group, the Philippine Animal Welfare Society (PAWS).

In the next few days, our goal is to vaccinate close to 500 dogs and cats against rabies which is quite prevalent in the Philippines, and also administer injectable vitamins for companion and farm animals and hand out pet food.

Plusieurs tonnes d'ivoire d'éléphant ont été découvertes mardi dernier dans un conteneur sur l'île de Zanzibar.

D'après les autorités, la marchandise avait été dissimulée dans des sacs de coquillages de 50 kilos chacun. Le volume total découvert n'a pas été dévoilé, mais se chiffrerait en tonnes aux dires de la police locale. Deux personnes, un transitaire et un homme d'affaires, auraient été arrêtées.
