“被拐”猛禽千里回沪

 

        今天,国际爱护动物基金会北京猛禽救助中心(International Fund for Animal Welfare Beijing Raptor Rescue Center, 简称IFAW BRRC)将两只国家二级保护动物——草鸮和斑头鸺鹠由北京带至上海并在奉贤区的上海海湾国家森林公园将其放飞野外。

  据IFAW BRRC猛禽康复师张率称,斑头鸺鹠主要分布在黄河以南,草鸮目前分布在长江以南,在北京地区并无分布,这两只猫头鹰均是被人非法捕捉、运输至北京进行贩卖,随后在IFAW BRRC接受救助和康复治疗。

  11月30日,IFAW BRRC在鼓楼附近某渔具店接收救助了4只国家二级保护动物——长耳鸮、斑头鸺鹠和两只草鸮。据救助者金先生描述,29日晚,一名鸟贩到其经营的渔具店推销鸟。当时,看着几只鸟被紧紧的塞在一个塑料篮子里。担心它们受伤,所以就花钱将几只鸟买了下来。“我们发现篮子里装着的是4只猫头鹰,知道它们是保护动物,非常珍稀,就第一时间联系IFAW BRRC实施救治。”金先生说。

Weihnachten bei der Hamburger Tiertafel

Fri, 12/14/2012
Auch Tiere lieben Weihnachtsgeschenke!

Alle Jahre wieder findet in den Ausgabestellen der Tiertafel-Deutschland e.V. eine Weihnachtsbescherung statt. Die Besitzer dürfen sich für ihre Lieblinge etwas wünschen, was über die Futterration hinaus dringend benötigt wird: ein neues Körbchen, Hundeleine oder ein Kratzbaum für die Katze. In diesem Jahr war Nadine von Brodorotti, Praktikantin in unserer Pressestelle, erstmals mit dem IFAW-Team dabei und half, die vielen gespendeten Geschenke an die richtigen Empfänger zu verteilen. Hier schildert sie ihre Erlebnisse bei der Tiertafel-Weihnacht:

In the Philippines, Typhoon Pablo serves as a vivid reminder of why we reach out

The author surveys the damage in Mindanao. c. IFAW/PAWSCompostela Valley, Davao Oriental and Agusan del Sur are areas that many people would not be able to point out on a map. 

When I heard that these were the areas hardest hit by Typhoon Bopha, locally known as Pablo, I had to look them up.
