Japan’s whaling fleet returns to port after resuming Antarctic whaling in defian

Japan’s whaling fleet returned to port today (Thur), after ignoring international law and global opposition to resume its illegal slaughter of whales in the Southern Ocean.

According to media reports, the Japanese government announced that the fleet arrived back in Shimonoseki, western Japan, earlier today. It had set out with plans to harpoon 333 minke whales. While there has so far been no official statement on the number of whales killed during this season’s hunt, Japanese government sources suggest the full quota was taken.

IFAW applauds China for banning import of African elephant ivory

Yesterday, China extended the ban on the imports of African elephant ivory carvings acquired after the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES) took effect in 1975 and African elephant ivory acquired as hunting trophies to December 31, 2019. In the meantime, a new ban was issued where China will forbid imports of all ivory and its products acquired before CITES.

Ein noch nicht harpunierter Zwergwale.

 Die japanische Walfangflotte ist heute von ihrer Walfangsaison in antarktischen Gewässern in den Hafen Shimoniseki zurückgekehrt, wo sie 333 Zwergwale töten wollte, das berichten Medien. Obwohl es bisher keine offizielle Bestätigung gibt, lassen Quellen in der Japanische Regierung vermuten, dass tatsächlich 333 Zwergwale auf der Expedition harpuniert wurden.

肯尼亚被罚没象牙

中国林业局昨日发布公告,从2016年3月20日起至2019年12月31日止,中国将延长2015年发布的临时禁止进口《濒危野生动植物种国际贸易公约》(CITES)生效后所获的非洲象牙雕刻品、以及在非洲进行狩猎后获得的狩猎纪念物象牙两项禁令。同时,中国将临时禁止进口CITES生效前所获的象牙及其制品。国际爱护动物基金会(International Fund for Animal Welfare,简称IFAW,www.ifaw.org.cn)对此表示赞赏。

中国濒危物种进出口管理办公室常务副主任孟宪林说:“延长去年实施的两项临时禁止进口措施,是希望能对遏制非洲大象盗猎和象牙走私等活动产生更明显的作用。而将禁止进口范围扩大,把CITES生效前所获的象牙及其制品也纳入其中,确保了我国出台的临时禁止进口象牙及其制品多项措施的全面性和协调性。这些,都表明中国政府为保护非洲大象所采取的措施更为严格、立场更加坚定。”
