On the scene, IFAW is working in cooperation with local Mexican government organizations such as CONABIO (National Commission for Biodiversity) and PROFEPA (Federal Department of Environmental Protection) to recruit and train volunteers to handle cleanup and wildlife rescue and rehabilitation work.

Nearly 300 MPs Call on Government to Stop Endangered Species Being Eaten into Extinction

Publication Date: 
Mon, 07/07/2003
The MPs, from all parties, signed an Early Day Motion (EDM) calling for urgent international action to address the bushmeat crisis. At current levels, bushmeat hunting could drive our closest animal relatives, Africa’s great apes (gorillas, chimpanzees and bonobos), to extinction within 15 years, along with other endangered species such as forest elephants. Only three EDMs – out of a total of 1,530 – have received more signatures this parliamentary session.

IFAW will be hosting a parliamentary reception on this issue tonight at the House of Commons.

IFAW Animal Action Awards honor the unsung heroes—young, old and everywhere in between—who have done something outstanding for animals. Perhaps they have devoted their life to saving animals at a sanctuary, volunteered to rescue animals during a natural disaster or campaign tirelessly for animal welfare. Additionally, IFAW will also honor animals that have done something heroic for a person or even for another animal.

Leonardo DiCaprio joins IFAW in urging public action to shut down ivory trade

Publication Date: 
Tue, 10/04/2011

DiCaprio serves as the global ambassador for the program, which highlights a different animal and conservation theme each year. This year’s theme is “Elephants, Never Forget,” and focuses on the crisis that elephants face 20 years after the international ivory trade ban was put in place.

While elephant populations started to recover following the ban, lax poaching oversight over the past several years has led to the prospect of extinction for the species in several African countries.
