Penguins affected by Uruguay oil spill returned to ocean

This rescue not only saved the lives of these animals, but also made it possible for IFAW to share its expertise in carrying out this type of rescue operation with SOCOBIOMA.
 
“When a bird’s plumage is contaminated with oil or any chemical, it loses its permeability and, as a consequence, its ability to regulate its body temperature. In this case, the penguins are forced out of the freezing waters in a state of hypothermia, which leads to dehydration and starvation,” said Dr.

Iceland signals an end to its commercial whaling enterprise due to lack of consumer demand

IFAW opposes whaling on the grounds that it is cruel and unnecessary. Economic studies in Iceland commissioned by IFAW and the Iceland Nature Conservation Association (INCA), have also revealed very little demand for the meat in Iceland or elsewhere, in contrast to the country’s successful whale watching industry, which generates more than US$20 million in revenue each year.
 
“This is fantastic news for whales and for Iceland,” said Robbie Marsland, Director of IFAW’s UK office.

Reflecting on the Park’s troubled past and the rampant poaching that kept tourists away and almost wiped out its wildlife populations, Kenya’s Tourism and Wildlife Minister Morris Dzoro said, “Meru not only became a hotbed of conflict and mismanagement, but also lost its splendour as a top tourist spot and wildlife refuge.”
&nbsp;
He applauded IFAW for supporting the Park’s restoration at a cost of US$ 1.25 million to improve basic infrastructure such as roads and staff houses, build electric fences to mitigate human-wildlife conflict, purchase

Experts think these animals cannot be released. First of all, because there is no rehabilitation center for Amur tigers in the Russian Far East.

“It was good we could timely start financing those orphaned tiger cubs. The last winter was a very difficult period for the Amur tiger population.

“We think a mosaic made from photos of tiger fans is a powerful way to remind world governments that the eyes of the world are watching what happens at CITES,” said Dr.
