Scientists collaborate on global response to marine strandings

international marine mammal stranding response

common dolphin mass stranding off Wellfleet Cape CodEvery year, hundreds of dolphins, whales, porpoises and seals strand along coastlines around the world. Fortunately, in some locations there are experienced networks of scientists, vets and volunteers who are able to respond to stranded animals quickly and with great success. In other corners of the world, however, responses are much more difficult.

Drie jonge neushoornwijfjes werden in 2016 gered van de overstromingen die in Kaziranga National Park grote verwoestingen aanrichtten. Nadat ze door het IFAW-WTI Centre for Wildlife Rehabilitation and Conservation (CWRC) met de hand waren grootgebracht, werden ze overgebracht naar Manas National Park als laatste voorbereiding op een terugkeer naar de vrije natuur.

5 quotes from MPs that give us hope for action against puppy farms in 2018

Will 2018 be the year the government ban third party sales of puppies through places such as pet shops? We certainly hope so.

Here are some recent quotes from five MPs which suggest that politicians are finally starting to take this issue seriously – and give us hope that change could be coming.

センザンコウのウロコが全面禁止にもかかわらず中国最大の押収、さらなる需要削減対策が必要

中国税関は昨日、7月に深圳の船から過去最大の11.9トンのセンザンコウのウロコを押収したと発表しました。CITESの附属書Ⅰにセンザンコウ全8種を掲載することに成功した20団体を超える連合のリーダーとして、また米国の絶滅危惧種法にセンザンコウの掲載を求める請願書の共同作成者として、国際動物福祉基金(IFAW)は以下の声明を発表しました。

「この歴史的な押収に関して、中国税関を称賛します。大量のセンザンコウのウロコの積荷が押収されるニュースは残念ながら一般的になりましたが、これは数万頭ものセンザンコウが殺されたことを意味しています。中国税関による密輸容疑者の捜査と逮捕は、正しい方向への一歩です。

センザンコウが密売人のせいで深刻な被害を受けていることに疑問の余地はありません。この最近の事件は、センザンコウの保護に関する厳罰化と取り締まりの強化が早急に必要な理由の一例です。

取り締まりは、中継国と目的国だけでなく、アフリカの供給国でも強化される必要があります。

Poaching for ivory has reached epidemic proportions in Southern Africa. Wildlife-human conflicts and accidents have caused an additional number of tragic deaths, both among elephants and people. Tanguy Dumortier, host of RTBF’s nature and environment program Le Jardin Extraordinaire, joined IFAW for two weeks in Zambia and Malawi to learn more about how we protect animals and the places they call home, and how people can be active participants in conservation.
