Fast 700 Stoßzähne wurden kürzlich in Malaysia beschlagnahmt (Bildrechte: Star P

Es ist nahezu unmöglich, alle Vorfälle der Wilderei bei Elefanten genau zu erfassen oder zu dokumentieren. Die unzähligen Vorfälle und die unzähligen Regionen, in denen sie sich abspielen, machen dies schlicht zu einer Herkulesaufgabe.

Als ich beim IFAW ankam, war ich auf vieles gefasst. Immerhin ist der IFAW eine Organisation, die Artenschutzprojekte in jeder Ecke der Welt betreibt und weltweite Kampagnen auf die Beine stellt. Damit im Hinterkopf machte ich mich natürlich schon darauf gefasst, dass meine tägliche Arbeit einiges an Aufregendem für mich bereithalten würde.

Nicht in meinen wildesten Träumen hätte ich mir allerdings ausgemalt, dass ich irgendwann einen ausgestopften Leoparden durch die Gänge des Europaparlaments schieben würde -und doch genau so kam es.

Blickpunkt Deutschland: Kampagne gegen den illegalen Handel mit Elfenbein im Internet

Fri, 10/14/2011

Mein erstes Kuscheltier als Kind war ein Plüsch-Elefant. Jetzt gehören Elefanten immer noch zu meinen Lieblingstieren. Vor einigen Jahren hatte ich die Chance im Addo Elefanten-Nationalpark in Südafrika wild lebende Elefanten zu erleben. Seitdem bin ich noch mehr fasziniert von diesen intelligenten Tieren, die in engen sozialen Beziehungen zusammen leben.

Publication Date:

The rhinos, female calves nicknamed Manasi and Roje, were rescued from the floodwaters that annually spill over the banks of the Brahmaputra River. The pair, both three years old, were rescued in the summer of 2004 and rehabilitated at the Center for Rehabilitation and Conservation (CWRC). CWRC is located near Kaziranga National Park, in North East India, and was founded in 2001 through a collaboration between WTI, IFAW and the Assam Forest Department.

Publication Date: 
Mon, 12/11/2006
The return was stopped by the Department of Science and Technology 36 hours before the gorillas were due to return to Cameroon early Wednesday morning 13th of December.
&nbsp;
"We understand that in terms of CITES, South Africa, as the recipient state of the four gorillas that were confiscated in Malaysia, does not have the authority to re-export the animals, as the question of the placement of the animals rests with the Management Authority of the state of confiscation" said Christina Pretorius.

IFAW: Think Carefully Before Giving Puppies and Kittens as Gifts

  • Caring for a pet is a lifelong commitment.&nbsp; Don’t assume your loved one wants or will accept that responsibility.
  • Choosing a pet is a personal experience that requires research and discovering which pet is a good match for the adopter’s preferences, lifestyle, personality, and environment as well as a good match for the pet.
  • Pets are sentient beings, not objects for display on a shelf.&nbsp; They deserve love and respect.&nbsp; To force someone to embrace these values is unrealistic and unfair, to both the person and the

Icelanders believe whaling damages tourism

Publication Date: 
Fri, 11/24/2006
The new Gallup poll was commissioned by the International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW - www.ifaw.org) in light of Iceland’s resumption of commercial whaling.
&nbsp;
Despite little market for meat from Iceland’s so-called “scientific” whaling programme, begun in 2003, whalers have recently harpooned seven endangered fin whales and one minke whale in a bid to sell the meat commercially.

Publication Date: 
Tue, 11/07/2006
An animal rescue team from IFAW (International Fund for Animal Welfare – www.ifaw.org) and the Borneo Orangutan Sanctuary Foundation (BOSF) has already treated more than forty orangutans for respiratory problems and burns.

Annual fires are intentionally set in Indonesia to clear forest land for agriculture before the rainy season begins in November. This year’s fires are the worst in a decade due to drier than normal conditions.

Russian gyrfalcons released to wild by IFAW

Publication Date: 
Thu, 11/09/2006
Four of the birds were sent by Russia’s environmental watchdog to IFAW’s wildlife rehabilitation center in Moscow. One of the falcons died.

All four gyrfalcons were fully rehabilitated and were released to the wild on the Kamchatka peninsula this week.

Only about 1,000 gyrfalcon pairs remain in the wild in Russia. Their main habitat is above the Polar Circle, from the Kola peninsula to Chukotka. Prior to winter, the birds move south but not far from their main habitat.
