According to a recently published report by IFAW, Killing with Keystrokes: An Investigation of the Illegal Wildlife Trade on the World Wide Web, Internet trade in wildlife poses a significant and immediate threat to the survival of many endangered species.

IFAW staff visiting markets in Beijing have discovered many souvenirs made from rare wild animals, including ivory carvings, musical instruments covered in reptile skin and traditional Chinese medicines containing endangered species.  These were found in tourist and curio markets and IFAW is concerned that unwitting tourists may be buying these items as a memento of their holiday, unaware that this trade is pushing endangered animals to the brink of extinction.

“IWC countries are being pressured not to vote for conservation measures.   If Japan, Iceland and Norway are genuinely interested in compromise, they should immediately suspend their  whaling as a sign of good faith,” Ramage said.   

The IWC has been deadlocked in recent years as the last three nations engaged in whaling for commercial purposes – Japan, Iceland and Norway – have fought to block conservation measures in the forum.
