World Lion Day: hoe het IFAW strijd voor leeuwen

maa, 08/10/2015

Het IFAW is al tijden dé voorvechter in de bescherming en het welzijn van de Afrikaanse leeuw.

Al jaren spreken we ons uit tegen het verschrikkelijke trofeejagen op álle diersoorten. Trofeejagen is onnodig, onethisch en vrijwel altijd afschuwelijk wreed; een lang gekoesterd principe van het IFAW is dat dieren, bedreigd of niet, nooit mogen worden bejaagd voor een trofee. Voor sommigen is er een verschil tussen bedreigde en onbedreigde soorten, maar voor ons, als dierenwelzijnsorganisatie, is het helder.

Celebrating Elephants 12th August – World Elephant Day 2015

On the occasion of World Elephant Day, the International Fund for Animal Welfare is celebrating the elephant; a fascinating, intelligent animal and keystone species critical for maintaining ecosystems and biodiversity. At the same time IFAW puts the spotlight on human activity as the biggest threat to the survival of these animals; poaching, habitat destruction, human animal conflicts have devastating effects on elephant populations. Urgent action is needed from the international community to protect elephants for future generations.
