The International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW) is changing its position on the Hunting Act and calling for a number of necessary amendments in light of another prosecution being dropped.

IFAW, one of the key groups involved in successfully campaigning for the Hunting Act to be introduced a decade ago, has continued to work to protect this vital piece of wildlife legislation. However, it believes the Act now needs amending so it can be used more effectively.

Has the London Summit on Illegal Wildlife Trade protected elephants, rhinos and tigers?

Mar 18 2015
Disappointingly, the UK Government has not delivered on its commitment to update

Just over a year ago I was watching as Bill Oddie lowered ivory into an aptly named ‘Red Rhino’ cement crusher in front of a host of supportive politicians.

Our message was clear – the illegal and inhumane poaching of elephants for their ivory must end now.
