Publication Date: 
din, 09/06/2011

Moments after the National Transitional Council (NTC) took control of the Libyan capital, IFAW’s focus turned to the animals living at the Tripoli Zoo. The zoo is located in very close proximity to Gadhafi’s former compound at Bab al-Aziziya which was the center of intense fighting. More than a thousand animals live in the zoo including a tiger, lions, hyenas, hippos, deer and monkeys to name a few.

1,041 elephant tusks seized on Zanzibar Island

Publication Date: 
don, 08/25/2011

The record-setting seizure comes as 27 wildlife law enforcement officials from 11 Southern African countries gather in Gaborone, Botswana this week to undergo a joint IFAW and INTERPOL training session on the prevention of illegal trade in wildlife.

The ivory shipment originated in Dar-es-Salaam and was apparently destined for Malaysia. The tusks were hidden among tins of anchovies, with the smell intended to disguise the presence of the ivory.

Rhinos suffer as latest victims of the illicit wildlife trade

Publication Date: 
maa, 07/18/2011

“Across Europe, thieves are targeting museums to steal antique rhino horns.  These crimes obviously have grave implications for museum collections and visitors, as well as the Earth’s rhinos, who are being slaughtered to near extinction to fuel the demand for their horns on the black market.  These thefts speak to the value of products derived from wildlife and the lengths to which people will go to profit from their illicit trade.
