“The Commission’s reply provides a description of the current EU legislative framework applied to this issue and an analysis of how to possibly address the Parliament’s request”, said IFAW’s political campaigner in the EU Office, Gaia Angelini. She also highlighted the Commission’s “commitment to high animal welfare standards”.

Last week, the Belgian Parliament voted unanimously to implement a national ban on the import of all seal products, making Belgium the first nation in the European Union to do so.

“Africa’s Elephants Must be Saved, Stop Ivory Trade Talks,” Say Wildlife Conservation Symposium Delegates

Publication Date: 
Mon, 08/28/2006

Elephant populations in West and Central Africa are some of the continent’s most vulnerable and most depleted. Only about three percent of Africa’s elephants can be found in the region, less than 20,000 individuals – where once hundreds of thousands of elephants roamed. These individuals are now pocketed into small, fragmented groups and are highly threatened by loss of habitat due to unplanned expansion of human settlements leading to rife human-elephant conflicts, and poaching for the bushmeat and ivory trades.

New IFAW Report Uncovers Public Safety Dangers

    More than 5,000 big cats are kept in facilities licensed by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) and it is estimated that thousands more are kept as pets.
     
    “We’ve seen too many tragedies that could have been prevented,” said Gregory Wetstone, IFAW’s U.S. director. “Against a background of dozens of dangerous big cat incidents, the new report demonstrates that the current USDA license system does not guarantee public safety or humane conditions.

    Mt. Merapi, a 2,965-meter-high volcano, has threatened eruption since May 13 and has spewed sulfur and heat clouds into the sky. On June 16, a 700-degree Celsius heat cloud struck nearby villages and spread ash across areas of Yogyakarta and Central Java – forcing scores of people to evacuate their homes. Mt. Merapi last erupted in 1994 killing at least 66 people. An eruption in 1930 killed 1,370 people.
     
    The threatening volcano has forced nearby residents into refugee camps.
