Gemakzuchtige criminelen stelen eenvoudig werelwijd neushoornhoorns uit musea

Tue, 08/23/2011

Een van mijn eerste professionele opdrachten bracht me naar Sana’a, de hoofdstad van Jemen. Het is moeilijk alle beelden en geluiden te beschrijven die op je afkomen als je door de monumentale Bab Al Yemen poort de oude stad van Sana’a binnenloopt, maar er zijn twee dingen die direct opvallen.

Het eerste is de aanblik van een kameel met oogkleppen op, opgesloten in een uiterst kleine ruimte die dienst doet als zijn gevangenis. De kameel loopt eindeloos rondjes rond een molensteen, uur na uur, dag na dag; die steen is het enige levensdoel van het dier.

Xishuangbanna, the last remaining rainforest in China, is home to 200 Asian elephants. Unfortunately, human development including farming and deforestation is creating human-elephant conflict in the region.

“I know elephants have lived around us for many years. They sometimes come down and eat our crops. My mom told me they killed one of the villagers because he was trying to hurt them,” said the 24-year-old Hani girl, Sangfin.

Whales Killed by Japan in Protected Waters

The footage shows Japanese whalers using a high-powered harpoon to gun the minke whale down.  The harpoon embeds in the minke’s back, hooking the large whale, but failing to kill it. The whale is then reeled in and tethered to the side of the boat with the harpoon still embedded in it.

IFAW Thrilled by Canada’s Green Party Stand on Commercial Seal Hunt

Party leader Jim Harris yesterday stated in a release that, “This government-subsidized seal hunt is a chapter in our history that needs to come to a close.”
 
“This is the first time in memory that the leader of a national party has spoken out against Canada's commercial seal hunt. This is historic,” said Olivier Bonnet, IFAW's Canadian Director.

Subsidies are key to supporting this cruel and wasteful hunt. Government-funded Coast Guard vessels smash pathways through the ice for sealers to gain access to the seals.

Wed, 11/23/2005
On Monday when they make presentations to the Department of Environment & Tourism (DEAT) headed by Minister Marthinus Van Schalkwyk, a number of local and international animal welfare groups and scientists will present their views on why culling as a management tool to curtail the KNP’s elephant population is not an option.

IFAW (International Fund for Animal Welfare – www.ifaw.org) and others will be weighing in against South African National Parks (SANParks), the custodians of KNP, which is calling for culling as a
