· Continue to walk dogs outdoors, but provide a sweater or coat for shorthaired and small dogs and bring your dog inside immediately if they start to shiver.

Nearly 300 MPs Call on Government to Stop Endangered Species Being Eaten into Extinction

Publication Date:

The MPs, from all parties, signed an Early Day Motion (EDM) calling for urgent international action to address the bushmeat crisis. At current levels, bushmeat hunting could drive our closest animal relatives, Africa’s great apes (gorillas, chimpanzees and bonobos), to extinction within 15 years, along with other endangered species such as forest elephants. Only three EDMs – out of a total of 1,530 – have received more signatures this parliamentary session.

IFAW will be hosting a parliamentary reception on this issue tonight at the House of Commons.

Publication Date: 
juli 30, 2002
The whales stranded once again with the falling tide and veterinary experts determined the animals were too weak to survive another rescue attempt. By late afternoon, the difficult decision was made to euthanize the remaining animals and end their suffering.

All members of IFAW's Emergency Relief Team would like to extend our sincere thanks for the tremendous outpouring of support we received during this difficult event.
