《争议之角》-评犀角贸易的致命代价

        一项针对合法和非法犀牛角市场经济学报告的研究发现,通过合法化犀牛角市场以减少犀牛偷猎将产生无法预估的后果。

        2013年底,受国际爱护动物基金会(International Fund for Animal Welfare,简称IFAW,www.ifaw.org.cn)之托,Economists at Large组织发布报告《争议之角》,对各种犀牛角贸易经济学正式和非正式的研究进行了评估。

         “他们的结论是,将犀牛角贸易合法化并不一定会减少对犀牛的偷猎。”IFAW南非地区总代表Jason Bell说道,“由于这种不确定性,就尝试将这种贸易合法化实在过于铤而走险。”

When a risk becomes reality

When a risk becomes reality

A very difficult day for our team; this morning we located a group of five elephants very close to our central base.

Our team left on foot backed up by helicopter.

We anaesthetized the first elephant from the ground.

He continued advancing forward, making his way through the extremely dense vegetation. We lost sight of him for several minutes.

By the time we found him, he had fallen into a swamp.

The vet intervened immediately; he administered the antidote to wake him up, and carried out electric shocks, all in vain.

D’après une synthèse de plusieurs rapports économiques sur le commerce légal et illégal de la corne de rhinocéros, il n’est pas certain qu’un assouplissement de la législation commerciale contribue à protéger les rhinocéros du braconnage, et il pourrait même se révéler contre-productif.
