China obtains CITES autorization to import 108 tons of ivory from 4 african countries

China recently obtained CITES (Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species) autorization to import ivory from 4 african countries (Botswana, Namíbia, South Africa and Zimbabwe). China was allowed to buy 108 tons of ivory colected from elephants that died from natural causes or killed in population control programs (??).

IFAW imediately critisized the position of CITES, saying that this decision will increment ilegal hunts disguised as legal. (and i fully agree. elephants are animals in danger of extinction. no amount of ivory should be allowed to be selled!!!)

Full article in portuguese, follows:

China autorizada a importar marfim de quatro países africanos

A China obteve autorização da Convenção Internacional para o Comércio de Espécies Ameaçadas (Cites) para importar marfim de quatro países africanos – Botswana, Namíbia, África do Sul e Zimbabwe –, durante uma reunião em Genebra, na Suíça.

Com esta decisão, muito criticada por associações ambientalistas por impulsionar o comércio ilegal, Pequim pode agora comprar 108 toneladas provenientes de elefantes mortos por causas naturais ou no âmbito de programas de controlo das populações de animais, noticia o “Público”.
«Esse é o total que pode ser vendido», explicou à “Reuters” o responsável da Cites, Juan Carlos Vasquez.
No Botswana, Namíbia, África do Sul e Zimbabwe, as populações de elefantes não estão a diminuir e encontram-se autorizadas pela Cites a vender marfim registado até 31 de Janeiro de 2007.
A Cites ponderou não incluir o Zimbabwe na lista de vendedores devido ao conturbado contexto político vivido no país, cujo presidente Robert Mugabe foi reeleito numa votação marcada pela violência.
Para obter a autorização, a China, um dos principais investidores na área do petróleo e dos minerais em África, teve de provar a capacidade para combater o tráfico ilegal de marfim no país.

Associações ambientalistas reprovam decisão da Cites
O Fundo Internacional para o Bem-Estar Animal (IFAW) criticou a decisão da Cites. «Permitir a importação de marfim pela China irá estimular a procura e criar uma nuvem de fumo para que o marfim ilegal seja branqueado no mercado legal», censurou em entrevista à “BBC”, Robbie Marsland, director do IFAW no Reino Unido.
Já o Fundo para a Conservação da Natureza (WWF, em inglês) reprova especialmente a existência de mercados de marfim ilegal em várias cidades africanas. «Ter marfim ilegal à venda encoraja mais a caça e o contrabando do que as vendas únicas e controladas», comentou a directora do programa para a preservação das espécies do WWF, Susan Lieberman.

So he’s a nightmare to work for but when you get him away from set, and he’s not in director mode, I kind of really enjoy his personality because he’s so awkward, so hopelessly awkward. He has no social skills at all.” megan fox naked

I have been browsing online more than three hours today, but I by no means found any
attention-grabbing article like yours. It's pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all site owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the net will probably be a lot more helpful than ever before.

Hello! I realize this is somewhat off-topic but I had to ask.
Does running a well-established website like yours require
a large amount of work? I am completely new to writing a blog but I do write in my diary everyday.
I'd like to start a blog so I will be able to share my personal experience and feelings online. Please let me know if you have any suggestions or tips for new aspiring blog owners. Thankyou!
