Als het hier regent, dan regent het ook goed! Dit olifantje is één van de zes kalveren die worden opgevangen in het IFAW Wildlife Rescue Center in Kaziranga, nadat ze door overstromingen in de problemen waren geraakt.

Passing of Frederic Chemay: Belgian IWC Commissioner

Publication Date: 
Thu, 10/02/2014

It is with great sadness that we here at IFAW learned of the passing of Frederic Chemay on Sept. 30th at only 53 years of age. As the Belgian IWC Commissioner Fred was a passionate advocate on behalf of whales. He would not be swayed from doing what he thought was in the best interest of marine mammals. He was a friend to many, including those of us here at IFAW, and it is unlikely we will see a man of his stature, principles and vision again anytime soon.

He will be missed.

Die Bilder zeigen nur drei der über zweihundert Schimpansen, die im Schimpansen-Schutzgebiet Chimp Haven in Louisiana, USA, ein neues Leben beginnen können. Der IFAW unterstützt das Projekt finanziell. Ich denke, die Bilder sprechen für sich selbst.
