Es geht um das Überleben von Tansanias Elefanten – Wilderer schießen sie jährlich zu Tausenden für den Handel mit Elfenbein, wie eine aktuale Zahlung bestätigt. Als Tansanias Präsident vor knapp 10 Jahren sein Amt antrat, gab es in Selous noch 75.000 der friedlichen Dickhäuter.

Der Regierung von Präsident Kikwete ist es bisher nicht gelungen, gegen die Elefanten-Wilderei wirksam und angemessen vorzugehen. Zudem setzt sie auf die Erschließung des Landes und den Abbau von Rohstoffen in den Naturgebieten.

In Defense Of Animals Releases 2013 List Of “Ten Worst Zoos For Elephants”

'

San Rafael, Calif. (January 15, 2014) – In Defense of Animals (IDA), an international animal protection organization, released today its list of the Ten Worst Zoos for Elephants for 2013. This marks IDA’s ten-year anniversary of exposing the suffering endured by elephants in zoos.

“Ten years should have been enough, but as long as zoos continue to house elephants in substandard exhibits that sacrifice the animals’ welfare, IDA will continue to call out the worst offenders,” said Nicole Meyer, Director of IDA’s Elephant Protection Campaign. “It’s high time for the zoo industry to stop paying lip service and start taking meaningful action to improve conditions for the hundreds of elephants languishing—and dying prematurely—in zoos across North America.”

IDA’s list illustrates how the zoo industry routinely ignores the needs of elephants in zoos through reckless breeding; housing them in unnatural social groupings in inadequate exhibits and cold climates; using outdated, harmful management techniques; and relying on conservation as a justification for keeping elephants in captivity when wild elephants are being slaughtered to near-extinction.

The Toronto Zoo’s appearance on IDA’s 2009 list sparked a campaign that led to the closure of that exhibit in 2013 with three elephants retired to a sanctuary. This brings the number of zoos that have closed, or will close, their elephant exhibits to 26. While zoos and the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA), the accrediting trade organization, are finally starting to acknowledge what IDA has asserted for years—that elephants need space and appropriate social groupings in order to thrive—the zoo industry continues to drag its feet by allowing countless elephants to suffer.

Nosey the elephant, a main attraction at a county fair, has suffered abuse for years. Her owner was recently fined $7500 by the U.S. Department of Agriculture for multiple violations of the Animal Welfare Act. Sign the petition and urge the board of the Arenac County Fair in Michigan to cancel Nosey’s elephant rides and sever business ties with her owner.

Thank you Stuart. I am afraid I become extremely angry with anyone who is not kind and respectful of animals and I know that I am very intolerant. The fear and pain inflicted on animals by humans every second of every day somewhere in the world destroys my sense of reason. Anyway - here is someone to make you smile.

Signed and submitted the petition. It is sad though how too many people don't treat animals with kindness and respect!

Jan, I commend you for running an animal sanctuary! You are most kind to do so and I see so many petitions that you publicize stressing being kind to animals. So you are AWESOME doing so!

I just wanted to remind everyone that humans can act without malice in ignorance of something and in innocence too.

Signed and submitted the petition. Poor Nosey, he doesn't seem to get a break and get the help that he needs. He ought to be able to get the help he needs and retire to a sanctuary.

Thank you, Jan, for the posting but since not everybody knows what has been happening to Nosey and probably most of those riding this poor elephant do not know its plight but are riding it innocently, I would ask that you would not consider acting on what you wrote: "Any creep wanting to ride poor Nosey deserves to fall off and break their neck. If I was there I would have to drag them off."

Please let's be kind though not only to Nosey but to those who do not know about Nosey and his history as we do but who are only looking for a unique, not-everyday-experience and not knowing, as we do, that they are adding to Nosey's poor miserable life.

On the Vet front, we have Dr Kushal Sharma, who's a famous elephant vet flying in from Assam. He reaches this evening.
In the meantime Dr. Yeduraj who is with Wildlife SOS at Agra, and also treats elephants, is coordinating with the vet Dr. Prakash Khangal on site (and in picture). So the correct treatment for Bijlee has started this morning (a huge yipeeeeee).
We are also trying to request Dr Nigel from Bangalore to come in and help. Dr. Ajay Deshmukh from Pune is already on his way.

Together, we can make this happen!

Prevent Elephants from being Killed by Trains

Subject: Prevent Elephants from being Killed by Trains
 
 

Sri Jairam Ramesh
Honorable Minister
Ministry of Environment and Forests,
Paryavaran Bhavan,CGO Complex,
Lodhi Road, New Delhi
Phone: 91-11-24361727
Fax: 91-11-24362222

Honorable Minister,

Since 2010, as many as 49 elephants have been killed on train tracks according to The Times of India.

The last death occurred inside the Buxa Tiger Reserve, a migration corridor elephants use between India and Bhutan.

There are several things the railways could do to prevent these needless deaths :

- halt movement of night trains passing through elephant corridors
- wildlife sanctuaries and National Parks
- construct elevated tracks and underpasses
- restricted speed limit.

I ask India to take immediate action to stop these needless deaths of elephants being struck by trains.

Sincerely,
