ケニアでゾウを救うためのチャリティ・ウォーク

ゾウを救う活動をしているジム・ニャムは今後2週間にわたり、アフリカのゾウが直面する脅威への関心を高めることを目的とする「エレファント・ウォーク」で、ケニアのモンバサからナイロビへと歩きます。

東アフリカ、特にケニアは違法象牙の主要な供給源や密輸ルートとされています。2013年1月だけでケニアに直接関係した約3.5トンの象牙の押収が報告され、そのうち2トンはモンバサ港で押収されました。

さらに1月上旬、ケニアで最も安全とされるツァボ東国立公園で12頭のゾウの家族すべてが密猟され、象牙を切り取られた状態で発見され、ケニア人はショックを受けました。

「ケニアではゾウの密猟事件が増えており、ケニアが密売人に好まれる密輸ルートになっているのは明らかです」とIFAW東アフリカ地域事務局長のジェームズ・イシチは言います。
