Nine things you may not know about dolphin strandings

On the occasion of dolphin awareness month, we would like to share a few facts about these charismatic cetaceans. Dolphins are some of the fastest animals in the sea, but when they strand on mud and sand they are unable to move on their own. Luckily there are people like the International Fund for Animal Welfare’s (IFAW) Marine Mammal Rescue and Research team available to come to their aid in top stranding hotspots like Cape Cod, Massachusetts.

Betere beveiliging beschermt neushoorns, niet het afzagen van hun hoorns

Dierentuinen moeten hun beveiliging verbeteren, en niet de hoorns van hun neushoorns afzagen om hen te beschermen tegen stropers.

“Het onnodig uitvoeren van een operatie bij een neushoorn en hem beroven van zijn prachtige en unieke kenmerken door zijn hoorn af te zagen, is kortzichtig en nogal lui”, zegt Joseph Okori, IFAW-regiodirecteur Zuidelijk Afrika en hoofd van de afdeling Soortbescherming. “Wat dierentuinen zouden moeten doen, is het verbeteren van de surveillance en de beveiligingssystemen om hun neushoorns te beschermen.”
