应对非法贸易的国际高层峰会即将在伦敦召开

        本周四,约50个国家的政策制定者将齐聚伦敦,共同商讨非法野生动物贸易问题,力求出台有力措施来保护大象、犀牛、老虎和其他濒危物种,免遭盗猎威胁。

        此次应对非法野生动物贸易的高层国际峰会由英国政府,查尔斯王子殿下(HRH Prince Charles)、剑桥公爵威廉王子(the Duke of Cambridge)主办。国际爱护动物基金会(International Fund for Animal Welfare,简称IFAW)呼吁各与会国达成共识,采取一系列措施来确保对野生动物的实际和持久保护。

        令人担忧的是,每15分钟就有一头大象因为象牙被猎杀。据估计每年至少有25,000到50,000头大象因为象牙被屠杀,而所获象牙不过是为了制作毫不必要的装饰品。

        在眼镜蛇二号行动中,执法人员共缴获犀牛角36根、象牙及其制品3吨以上、龟1万多只、受保护物种的皮张1千多张、欧洲鳗1万多只,以及濒危红木200多吨。被逮捕的罪犯中有多人是野生动物犯罪团伙的头目。

The London Conference on Illegal Wildlife Trade is an opportunity for the highest levels of government to come together as a united front against the illegal wildlife trade. The expertise and support of the international community can only bring us closer to achieving the shared goals of the global community.

But as HRH Prince of Wales said: “Neither governments, international organizations, nor private companies can tackle this enormous task alone. It will take action from all of us to beat back this highly organized criminal activity.”
