IFAW’s Northern Dogs Project team was in a remote Canadian community providing vital veterinary care and humane education when concerned community members alerted IFAW’s team that due to concerns about the number of roaming dogs, unwanted dogs would soon be rounded up and shot. In many remote communities without access to regular veterinary care, this is often considered the only means of controlling the dog population.

US Gulf Coast wildlife face devastating impact from oil slick

Publication Date: 
din, 05/04/2010

The April 20 explosion of the BP-operated Deepwater Horizon offshore oil rig has reportedly spewed around 5,000 barrels of oil a day into the Gulf.

“In an incident like this, coastal birds will be among the hardest hit. There are millions of birds at risk as the US Gulf coast is not only home to many resident species, but also a regular refuge for many birds migrating north,” said Dr. Ian Robinson, IFAW Emergency Relief Director.

Some well-known species at risk include terns, herons, egrets, gannets, ducks and Louisiana’s state bird, the Brown pelican.

Last month, Canadian Sealers Association representative Frank Pinhorn stated that many seal skin processors had inventory going back several years. Last week, media reported that a sole buyer in Newfoundland, NuTan Furs, would purchase fewer than 15,000 skins this year.  The single boat that set out from the Magdalen Islands last month to hunt seals for meat admitted that it was forced to dump pelts overboard due to the lack of sealskin markets.

Canadian government raises kill quota for harp seal pups despite severe lack of ice habitat

“The Canadian government looks absurd calling for 330,000 seals to be slaughtered when there may not even be that many pups left alive,” said Sheryl Fink, a senior researcher with IFAW.

Harp seals require stable ice platforms to give birth and nurse their pups. This year’s ice conditions are the lowest on record, spelling imminent danger for the pups’ survival.

“Wild tigers once numbered around 100,000 across Asia, today there are fewer than 3,500,” said Grace Ge Gabriel, IFAW’s Asia Regional Director. “Tigers face threats from loss of habitat and prey. But the greatest threat to wild tigers is poaching to supply an illegal trade driven by the demand for tiger parts and products.”
