“Massive flooding in the city of Mumbai and areas in Gujarat and Maharashtra has already killed thousands of animals,” said Anand Ramanathan, IFAW Emergency Relief operations manager. “In response, IFAW and the Wildlife Trust of India (WTI) have mobilized Emergency Relief team members to rescue as many animals we can.”
 
Northeast India is known for annual flooding but this year unexpected floods in Western India left many unprepared.

Poaching Remains Main Threat to Tibetan Antelope

The Tibetan antelope is one of the flagship species of China’s Qinghai-Tibet, China Plateau and is highly endangered. By the mid-1990s its population had plummeted, from an estimated 2 million at the turn of 20th century, to merely 75,000 animals. Tibetan antelopes, also called Chiru, are hunted for their wool – considered the finest in the world -- which is woven into garments called Shahtoosh shawls.

Every single day thousands of wild animals and animal parts – from live chimpanzees and huge ivory tusks to tiny dried seahorses – are illegally traded in cyberspace. IFAW conducted a three-month investigation which showed that, in a single week, over 9,000 live animals or products were for sale on English-language websites, chat rooms and the popular auction site eBay. At least 70% of the products were species protected by international law.

“It is very disappointing that an elephant was nearly killed by poachers within a protected nature reserve,” said Dr. Zhang Li IFAW’s Director of China, “Stronger measures must be taken to tackle wildlife poaching in the nature reserves to prevent more animals from suffering and death.”

After finding the trapped elephant, members of IFAW’s Asian elephant protection team anesthetized the calf, freed its leg from the clamp and moved it to a location where its wounds could treated by medical staff.

Iceland's Whaling Boats Resume Hunt

The International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW) had earlier urged the Icelandic government to reject this quota, recommended by Iceland's Marine Research Institute several weeks ago, and call an end to so-called scientific whaling.

A joint statement by the British, French and German governments in May also strongly criticized the MRI's proposals for 39 minke whales to be taken.  Since August 2003, 62 minke whales have been killed in Iceland's coastal waters in the name of science.

IFAW (International Fund for Animal Welfare –www.ifaw.org) today condemned the decision by the Kenyan Government saying that it sends the wrong message to the world. 

Thailand Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra requested wildlife for the zoo during a meeting late last year with Kenyan President Mwai Kibaki. The Chiang Mai Night Safari Park is a project launched by Shinawatra and animals from other countries have been requested from private zoos and donors.
