国際動物福祉基金(IFAW)の役員であるジェームズ・コスタの家に先週、ハリウッドの活動家グループが集まり、世界中で動物を養育・保護するIFAWの活動を支えている人々と交流しました。

コスタは、IFAWの役員であるグレッグ・メルツとパートナーのブルース・ロバーツ、そしてIFAWのアゼディーン・ダウンズ代表兼CEOと共にジンバブエに行き、ジンバブエ・エレファント・ナーサリー(ZEN)を訪問した後、このイベントを主催すると決めました。「ZENのモットー、『個々を尊重し、見て、感じて、救う〜1匹ずつ』とIFAWのモットー、『1匹ずつ、野生生物保護を変革していく』の共通点に感銘を受けました」とコスタは言います。

ZENの創設者であるロキシー・ダンクワーツは、ジンバブエで親を亡くしたゾウにもう一度生きるチャンスを与える活動の話で、イベントに集まった人々を楽しませました。

Tackling wildlife trade and empowering youth on World Wildlife Day

Amidst the sixth mass extinction, wildlife conservation has never been more paramount. The UN World Wildlife Day, which takes place globally on the third of March each year, provides an opportunity to emphasize the importance of protecting wild animals and plants.

This year, International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW) and the Secretariat of the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES) partnered to end rampant illegal wildlife trade and encourage active youth involvement in wildlife protection.
