IFAW statement on badger cull figures

Philip Mansbridge, UK Director of IFAW, said: “It is shocking to hear that more than 32,000 British badgers were cruelly killed this year as part of the Government’s unscientific and ineffective badger cull. This number is at its highest ever, over 10,000 more than last year, after the Government expanded the legal culling areas to 32 places across England.

IFAW gematigd positief over Nederlands ivoorverbod

Het International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW) is gematigd positief over het Nederlandse ivoorverbod en feliciteert de Nederlandse regering ermee dat zij niet wacht op de aanhoudende discussie over de aangekondigde EU-brede aanpak. Een minpunt van het verbod is dat het niet gaat om een “totaalverbod”. Bovendien heeft het Verenigd Koninkrijk een verder strekkend verbod ingesteld.

IFAW welcomes the Dutch ivory ban as a first step

The International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW) congratulates the Dutch government for making progress on the fight against ivory trade, following the announcement today of a Dutch ivory ban on raw ivory, without waiting for possible further actions from the EU. IFAW would however encourage the Dutch government to go even further, as for instance is the case with the stricter ban that was passed in the British Parliament last week, and includes both worked and raw ivory.

A monumental moment as we release raptors on the Great Wall

A monumental moment as we release raptors on the Great Wall

On a brilliant November day, ifaw president and CEO Azzedine Downes and I climbed the Great Wall. Autumn foliage dots the mountains with red and yellow. Not a wisp of cloud in the blue sky.

A perfect day for our mission: release six raptors—common kestrels to be exact—back to the sky.
