Dorpen als Sukamenah aan de voet van Mount Sinabung zijn nu net spooksteden. De enige tekenen van leven zijn de dieren die er nog rondzwerven.

We vonden Mambo onder een huis. Hij kon nauwelijks zijn kop optillen. Zijn broertjes en zusjes renden rond, dus we wisten dat hij dringend medische zorg nodig had.

香港海关查获的野生动物制品

        Biological Conservation杂志最新刊登的一篇研究论文指出,野生动物及其制品的非法交易是世界上最暴利、最引人关注的非法贸易之一,可能仅次于非法军火和毒品走私。

        该文章指出,一些最臭名昭著的武装叛乱集团和恐怖组织,尤其是达尔富尔的金戈威德民兵组织(Darfur’s Janjaweed) 和军阀Joseph Kony领导的圣灵抵抗军( Lord’s Resistance Army)——目前全部从非法野生动物贸易中获厚利,为他们的入侵行动、内战和其他暴力行为提供资金支持。

Little Mambo's eyes are sealed shut from infection. © IFAW-COPVillages like Sukamenah in the foothills of Mt. Sinabung are now like ghost towns. The only signs of life are the few animals that survived.

We found Mambo under a house. He could barely lift his head. His littermates were running around, so we knew he needed medical care, and we would have to work fast.

Langzamer varen redt levens

Langzamer varen redt levens

Toen ik klein was, nam mijn vader me altijd mee naar de nesten van Canadese ganzen vlakbij zijn kantoor. De eieren waren net uitgekomen. Er waren geen stoepen, dus liepen we op de weg en het gras. Volgens de verkeersborden mocht je er 30 kilometer per uur rijden. Of hij nu probeerde om me extra voorzichtig te laten zijn, of dat hij het gewoon een interessant wetenschappelijk feit vond (hij is tenslotte ingenieur), hij vertelde dat deze snelheidslimieten er zijn om het risico dat mensen overlijden bij een aanrijding te verkleinen.
