Actress and activist Amber Valletta joins the International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW - www.ifaw.org) at the BLUE Ocean Film Festival in Monterey, California, September 26 – 28 to raise awareness of entangled whales in California.
“It is upsetting to imagine such a magnificent creature with ropes and other marine debris wrapped around its body,” said Ms. Valletta, an IFAW Honorary Board member. “It can cause life-threatening injuries to whales and can often be dangerous for their rescuers as well.”

今天，加拿大渔业和海洋部长盖尔·谢伊（Gail Shea）宣布，加拿大对欧盟颁布海豹制品禁令正式向世界贸易组织（World Trade Organization）提出申诉。国际爱护动物基金会（International Fund for Animal Welfare，简称IFAW，www.ifaw.org.cn）对加拿大政府向WTO申诉欧盟对残忍、毫无必要的海豹制品说不的权利以及让加拿大纳税者为申诉的巨大费用买单表示谴责。
