        今天国际爱护动物基金会北京猛禽救助中心(International Fund for Animal Welfare Beijing Raptor Rescue Center,简称IFAW BRRC,www.brrc.org.cn)在北京鹫峰国家森林公园放归了7只红隼、1只阿穆尔隼和1只燕隼,均是国家二级保护野生动物。

        2013年5月10日,救助人郑女士将两只阿穆尔隼送至IFAW北京猛禽救助中心。据郑女士说,4月底,她的一位朋友在内蒙古发现了这两只猛禽,并带至北京交给了她。郑女士一直将两只猛禽养在笼子里,期间也一直在寻找相关的救助单位,联系到中心后就赶紧将两只猛禽送至中心救治。猛禽康复师戴畅说:“这两只阿穆尔隼的双翅及尾羽羽毛损毁很严重,喙也过长,并且两只猛禽的行为也都有问题。经过3个月的治疗和康复,经过评估,其中一只阿穆尔隼已经达到放飞标准。可惜的是另外一只,还需要经过一段时间的换羽,才能回归野外。”

        据报道,今天香港海关查缴了1,120根象牙。自今年1月以来,香港罚没的象牙总量已超过3吨。

        今早查获的象牙是1个月内香港所查获的第2批象牙。上个月, 香港海关刚刚查获了2吨多的象牙, 这也是2010年以来查获的最大一批象牙。

        “对大象而言,今年又是糟糕的一年,”国际爱护动物基金会(International Fund for Animal Welfare,简称IFAW,www.ifaw.org.cn)野生动物犯罪和消费者教育项目主任Kevin Alie说,“自1月以来,不断有大规模的象牙被查缴。现在令人担心的事情是,过去4周香港所查获的两批象牙,已经采取了迂回的路线,绕过传统的出境地——东非,改从西非运出,其中上个月的2吨由西非国家多哥运出。而今天查获的象牙则是由尼日利亚运出的,它们被藏匿在集装箱内,被谎报称是木材。”

Mon, 08/12/2013

Wat is er fijner dan op een zaterdagmiddag in het zonnetje genieten van een leuke band én ondertussen kennis te maken met medewerkers van het IFAW die alles kunnen vertellen over ons levensreddende werk?

Dit was ook de gedachte van Stichting Festivals tegen Dierenleed. Deze stichting organiseert ieder jaar een muzikaal festival om een dierenwelzijnsorganisatie in het zonnetje te zetten. Het eerste festival staat in het teken van het IFAW en de strijd tegen de olifantenjacht.

Roaming dogs are a common sight on the streets throughout Puerto Natales. You can’t walk a block in Puerto Natales without seeing a dog...or five. The dogs are everywhere, and especially in a tourist town like Puerto Natales, they notice you as much as you notice them. They can recognize a visitor from blocks away, and will trail you in an impromptu pack.
