五头年迈亚洲黑熊赴成都安享晚年

 

        5头在国际爱护动物基金会(简称IFAW -- www.ifaw.org.cn) 广东番禺黑熊养护中心生活了13年的亚洲黑熊于今天上午10点30分到达了它们四川的新家——四川龙桥黑熊救护中心。该中心由亚洲动物基金(简称AAF -- www.animalsasia.org.cn )建立。目前有168头从养熊场解救的取胆熊在这里幸福地生活。

  自1993年起,IFAW和谢罗便臣女士(Jill Robinson)就开始关注中国大陆亚洲黑熊被残忍虐待并活体取胆的状况。1996年在广东省林业部门的配合下,成功解救了9头由非法且条件恶劣的“活熊取胆”场罚没的亚洲黑熊。这次有历史意义的救助行动开启了中国亚洲黑熊救助及反对残忍虐待动物的行动。同年IFAW番禺亚洲黑熊养护中心成立。2000年AAF创办人谢罗便臣建立了四川龙桥救护中心,迄今,共救助黑熊250只。

Rhino poachers pay a stiff price for their crime

There’s very good news out of South Africa as two poachers were sentenced to 29 years each for their roles in killing rhinos in South Africa’s world-famous Kruger National Park.

This news is important for more than just the removal of two poachers who sought to profit from the death and suffering of an animal.

With Sen. Kerry's leadership, another milestone is reached in the U.S. Big Cats

Exciting news!

U.S. Senator John Kerry (D-MA) has introduced S. 3547, the Senate companion to H.R. 4122, the House version of the Big Cats and Public Safety Protection Act, aimed at prohibiting breeding and private possession of captive big cats in the United States.

The senator, a longtime champion of wildlife protection and conservation, is committed to safeguarding big cats from exploitation and abuse, while also addressing the myriad challenges facing law enforcement as it deals with tigers kept in backyards or roadside zoos.

I, for one, am thrilled!

IFAW采取紧急行动,帮助“人”口脱险犬只

 

        今天,国际爱护动物基金会(IFAW – www.ifaw.org.cn)致函国家级政府管理部门,对自贡当地政府部门处理非法窝点贩卖运输犬只的方式和结果表示质疑,并呼吁国务院责令有关部门严查该类事件,完善法规,坚决取缔猫狗肉贸易。同时,IFAW向成都爱之家动物救助中心(www.aizhijia.org)提供免疫药品和医疗指导,帮助解决自贡被救犬只的医疗防疫问题。

        10月14日,根据群众举报,志愿公众在自贡一个收购和贩卖犬只的窝点门口堵截下一辆准备开往广西的运狗卡车,当地政府部门称该窝点有经营许可证和检验检疫证明,认为狗贩为合法经营。为了尽快救助危在旦夕的狗,最终,志愿群众被迫以赎买的方式解救了800条狗。“目前,600条被救犬只由爱之家动物救助中心进行安置。”爱之家动物救助中心创办人陈运莲说。
