Nania op weg terug naar het wild

Mar 18 2019
Nania op weg terug naar het wild

Het is 04.45 uur wanneer ik arriveer in het park Deux-Balé in Boromo. In de verte hoor ik balkende ezels en blaffende honden. Straks begint het ochtendgebed en niet lang daarna zal de stad gevuld worden met het geluid van motoren, kindergelach en zingende soldaten. Tegen die tijd zal Nania de stad al verlaten hebben.

Als ik aankom, tilt Nania haar slurf op en neemt ze diep adem. Het reukvermogen van olifanten is ongeëvenaard in het dierenrijk. Het is vijf keer sterker dan het reukvermogen van mensen en twee keer zo gevoelig als dat van honden.

Imported teaser text: 

Il fait frais et encore nuit lorsque j’arrive à l’Unité de gestion des Deux Balé de Boromo. Il est 4h45. Pour l’instant, seuls le braiement des ânes qui déambulent dans les rues et quelques aboiements de chiens se font entendre. Mais bientôt, l’appel à la prière du muezzin résonnera dans la ville. Les premiers grondements des moteurs de motos et de voitures se mêleront aux rires des enfants allant à l’école et au chant des militaires entamant leur réveil musculaire au pas de course. A cette heure, Nania aura quitté la ville.

Celebrating Life Below Water: An Insider’s Look at World Wildlife Day 2019

Imported teaser text: 

In spirit of spreading awareness for marine conservation, World Wildlife Day 2019 celebrated the theme “Life below water: for people and planet”. This year, I had the opportunity to join my IFAW colleagues for World Wildlife Day at the United Nations Headquarters in New York City. We kicked off the weekend with a high-level event led by CITES Secretary General Ivonne Higuero. Seating amongst me in the conference room were UN ambassadors, numerous wildlife organizations, and selected individuals who represented the youth’s voice.

Nania on the road back to the wild

Imported teaser text: 

The air was cold and the sky still dark when I arrived at the Deux-Balé management unit in Boromo. It was 4:45 AM, and only the braying of donkeys ambling along the streets and a few barking dogs could be heard. Soon, though, the muezzin’s call to prayer would resonate throughout the town. The first roars of car and motorcycle engines would mingle with the laughter of children on their way to school and the songs sung by soldiers on their morning run. But by that time, Nania will have left town.

Why the Third Party Sale of Puppies has to end

At the end of 2018 the Government announced that it would introduce a ban on the third party sale of puppies and kittens. So what is the third party sale of pets, why is it a problem, and when can we expect to see a change in the law?
