Northern Dogs

When people from outside our country think of Canada, they often think of vast expanses of frozen tundra stretching as far as the eye can see. Blowing blizzards. Frostbite. Snow.

And they aren’t entirely wrong.

ヨハネスブルクで開催されている「絶滅のおそれのある野生動植物の種の国際取引に関する条約(CITES)」の第17回締約国会議(CoP 17)で、締約国は今日、世界で最も違法取引されている哺乳類をさらなる乱獲から至急保護する必要があると決定しました。センザンコウ全8種は附属書Ⅱから附属書Ⅰに格上げされ、センザンコウの部位の国際商業取引は禁止されます。

 

「この決定は、センザンコウの絶滅を回避できるかもしれないという真の希望を与えてくれます」と国際動物福祉基金(IFAW)のキャンペーン次長、マーク・ホフバーグは言います。「センザンコウは残酷にも持続可能では全くないスピードで殺されています。何もしなければ、このすばらしい生物は今の代で消滅するかもしれません。」
