世界最大の野生生物取引に関する会議が今日、南アフリカのヨハネスブルグで終了し、動物のために投じられた票により多くの重要な投票で保護が商業を凌ぎました。

3年に1度開催される「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)」、通称ワシントン条約の締約国会議は、絶滅危惧種の野生動植物の取引に関する問題を議論するために、今年は政府や保護団体の代表が4,000人以上集まりました。

「この会議で意思決定者の考え方に大きな変化が見られました。単に市場価値を考えるよりも、野生生物を保護するためには自然保護への配慮を最優先しなくてはいけないという認識があるように感じられました」と国際動物福祉基金(IFAW)の野生生物取引部長、ケルヴィン・アリーは言います。

Wildlife Law Enforcement Agencies Gather to Enhance Skills of Wildlife Law Prose

Boosting law enforcement skills of stakeholders is critical to detecting, managing and adjudicating over wildlife cases

In spite of evidence showing wildlife crime is linked to other forms of serious offenses, most countries apply wildlife policies and legislation that fail to treat wildlife poaching and trafficking as a serious offence.  As a result of the weak laws, wildlife crime offenders are never profiled despite their despicable acts of illegal killing and trafficking of wildlife.
