Japan does not need to kill any whales for ‘scientific research’ this year according to scientists from the majority of countries represented at the recent meeting of the International Whaling Commission’s (IWC) Scientific Committee.

Japan plans to resume Antarctic whaling later this year after the International Court of Justice (ICJ) ruled in March last year that its Southern Ocean whaling programme JARPA-II was not for scientific purposes and was therefore illegal.

今年4月末以来シンガポールとタイで約7トンもの象牙が押収された事件の中心人物と思われる容疑者3人がケニアで逮捕されたことを受け、国際動物福祉基金(IFAW)は称賛を送りました。

多機関で構成されるタスクフォースは先週、モンバサの高級市場で容疑者 ― 裕福なビジネスマンとその息子2人 ― を逮捕しました。3人組は先週金曜日に裁判所に姿を現し、新聞報道によると、モンバサ港からの象牙の違法出荷に関連する逮捕者はこれで14名になりました。

象牙の積送品2つは茶葉と偽ってコンテナに積み込まれ、モンバサ港から出荷されました。4月25日に最初の押収事件としてタイ当局が象牙3トンを押収。報告によると、積送品はタイ到着時に発見されるまでに、スリランカ、マレーシア、シンガポールを含む複数の港を通過していました。

5月19日にはシンガポールで象牙3.7トンが押収され、この島国にとって10年間で2番目に大規模な象牙の押収となりました。
