        周二, 在桑给巴尔岛的一个货物集装箱内,稽查人员发现被藏匿的数吨象牙。

        据报道,这些象牙被塞进数个塑料编织袋中,并谎报内容物为贝壳,每个编织袋重达50公斤。查获的总重量尚未公开,但桑给巴尔警方官员称其总量达到了数吨。报道指出,两名涉案人员——一位报关员和一位商人均已被逮捕。

        坦桑尼亚当局开展打击行动旨在终止本国猖獗的盗猎以及象牙走私所带来的危机,而此次查缴正值打击行动开展期间。(桑给巴尔岛是坦桑尼亚的半自治地区。)

        上周,坦桑尼亚警方逮捕了三名中国商人,这三位商人被发现藏有706件象牙。一周前,路障检查时,警方在汽车行李箱中发现被藏匿的象牙89根。

I'm now joined by two veterinarians and an emergency responder from our partner group, the Philippine Animal Welfare Society (PAWS).

In the next few days, our goal is to vaccinate close to 500 dogs and cats against rabies which is quite prevalent in the Philippines, and also administer injectable vitamins for companion and farm animals and hand out pet food.
