While highlighting some important progress in the fight against illegal wildlife trade, a high-level government meeting in Botswana will most likely be remembered by the broken promises of almost half of the countries who just 13 months ago committed themselves to a global effort to end the scourge.

tenBoma(テン・ボーマ)―テロとの闘いからゾウの救助まで

ケニアの閣僚、環境・水・天然資源大臣のジュディ・ワクング教授は今日、ゾウの密猟危機の打開策につながることを目的としたユニークな提携を発表しました。

密猟が発生する前に阻止してゾウを保護することを目的として、国際動物福祉基金(IFAW)とケニア野生生物公社(KWS)の間で主旨書が調印され、tenBoma(テン・ボーマ)プロジェクトが正式に発足しました。

tenBomaはスワヒリ語で「ニュンバ・クミ」または「10軒組」と呼ばれるケニアの既存の地域警備における考え方から名付けられました。tenBomaはこれと同じ考え方を拡大して、ケニアの国立公園や周辺地域を含めて、野生生物と地域社会を密猟犯罪組織から保護するためのネットワークを形成します。

「ケニアはゾウを保護する決意を固めました―我々は密猟組織を破壊するために全力を尽くし、この革新的なパイロット・プロジェクトに参加することを誇りに思います」とワクング教授は言います。

ベルギーのエネルギー・環境・持続可能な開発相、マリー・クリスティーヌ・マルゲムは、EU全加盟国から象牙の輸出を禁止するEUの措置を要請しました。この大胆な要請があったのは、フランスの競売会社が、フランスの購入者はベルギー経由で中国に象牙を送付すれば国内では禁じられている未加工象牙の禁輸措置を回避できると提案したためです。

(Sydney – 25 March, 2015) With the spotlight now on today’s conference on Illegal Wildlife Trade in Kasane, Botswana conservationists said while that Tuesday’s African Elephant Summit had shown significant progress by some countries, notably African countries to address the elephant crisis, there appeared to be glaring differences in the commitment by others to halt the killing of elephants and illegal ivory trade.

The Amazing Whale(Fest) experience

The Author at Whalefest.

The Author at Whalefest.Have you ever smelled the breath of a whale?

I did, and it smells really fishy. During a whale watching boat trip, I felt like a true detective, smelling whale before seeing it and following the stinking trail…

We actually ended up never seeing a whale on that particular boat trip, but I was blissfully happy - I had smelled a whale.

Futtermittelhersteller Almo Nature hilft mit einer Großspende für die Berliner Tiertafel e.V.

maart 24, 2015
Die Klienten der Berliner Tiertafel freuen sich über das von der Firma Almo Natu

Heute ist Oster-Ausgabe in der Berliner Tiertafel. Wegen der bevorstehenden Feiertage wird Tierfutter für vier statt, wie sonst üblich, zwei Wochen ausgegeben. Als ich ankomme, sehe ich schon von weitem die lange Schlange von Tiertafel-Klienten, die sich noch ein ganzes Stück den Bürgersteig entlang windet. Viele sind mit ihren Hunden gekommen und warten geduldig im eiskalten Berliner Märzwetter.
