Een speciale band: midden in New York is een dier iemands laatste hoop

Er kan een speciale band bestaan tussen mens en dier. Veel mensen voelen dit bij hun hond of kat en een paar gelukkigen onder ons hebben zelfs zo’n band ervaren met grote, indrukwekkende dieren, zoals olifanten, neushoorns, walvissen, dolfijnen of apen.

      现在是2014年8月初,今年到目前为止,执法部门每周都会查获大批量的象牙。“而这些仅仅是被报道出的情况,”国际爱护动物基金会(International Fund for Animal Welfare,简称IFAW,www.ifaw.org.cn)指出。

       “每一批被查获的象牙都意味着地球的某一处的大象惨遭猎杀,事实上,猎杀大多发生在非洲,发生在那些由于贫穷和政局不稳定,盗猎者和走私集团可以肆意横行的国家。”IFAW大象保护项目主任Jason Bell说。

“在世界各地的动物保护者准备庆祝世界大象日的时刻,值得反思的是,自今年1月以来,每周执法部门都会查获规模不等的走私象牙。每年,有超过35,000头大象因象牙贸易而被残忍杀害。”

“New York is in the right state of mind with this ivory ban.

An African elephant is slaughtered on average every fifteen minutes to feed the troublingly large consumer demand for ivory. The U.S. is among the largest ivory consumers in the world and New York is one its biggest sales hubs.

Although many in the industry claim not to be part of the problem driving the elephant poaching crisis, investigators found almost no data that would support this assertion.
