Sunday 13 April was one of those days when eight IFAW supporters all ran and successfully completed the gruelling 26.2 miles of the London Marathon 2014.

IFAW: Commercial Seal Hunt Opens, Continues to Require Government Support

After over 30 years of trying to revive the commercial seal hunt, and over $50 million in government support, the hunt will proceed again in 2014 despite the lack of markets. 


“This hunt has been on life support for 20 years. It will never come back to previous levels. When will governments in Ottawa and St. John’s start to think about the future, and help sealers transition out of this failed industry?” says Sheryl Fink, Wildlife Campaigns Director of IFAW Canada.

Après plus de 30 ans passés à essayer de réhabiliter la chasse au phoque commerciale, laquelle a déjà absorbé plus de 50 millions de dollars d'aides publiques, les chasseurs canadiens reprennent du service en 2014 malgré l'absence de débouché.

近日在整董橡胶地活动的象群

        4月12日上午8:30分左右,云南普洱市江城县整董镇滑石版村陇山箐小组67岁村民赵家有与12岁儿子赵升刚在自家玉米地除草时,遭遇亚洲象攻击,赵升刚侥幸逃生,赵家有不幸被大象踩死。而就在3月13日,该小组刚刚有一名村民在自家咖啡地中被大象攻击致死。在此,国际爱护动物基金会(IFAW)对于这样极端的人象冲突事件的悲剧性结果表示遗憾,并对两位逝者表示深深的哀悼。IFAW已经着手与地方政府和科研机构对此次大象袭击人的事件进行调查。

        普洱市江城县属于IFAW云南亚洲象保护项目监测地,2011年10月前,这里并无亚洲象的分布,它们自西双版纳勐旺乡曼又村方向,过曼老江来到了江城县整董镇范围内活动。为了避免和减少当地村民遭遇象群,出现人象直接冲突的危险,IFAW与普洱市林业局、江城县林业局合作,在江城新增亚洲象活动区域开展象群的村级预警监测工作。IFAW自2008年开展象群监测以来,在IFAW的象群监测地,并未发生一起人象伤亡事件,然而,在短短的1个月内,这样的悲剧还是在该新增监测区上演了。
