南非航空禁止運送瀕危野生動物狩獵戰利品

南非航空已頒布瀕危野生動物狩獵戰利品的禁運令!

南非航空澳洲區域經理提姆·克萊德- 史密斯(Tim Clyde-Smith) 表示,南非貨運上週宣佈南非航空即日起全面禁止運送因狩獵活動而喪命的大象、犀牛、獅子和老虎。

「獵殺瀕危物種已然在非洲以及其他地區導致曾經隨處可見的野生動物瀕臨滅絕邊緣的重大問題。南非航空為此已下令禁止運輸任何因狩獵活動而遭殺害的動物。」提姆說。

「在向有關當局諮詢後,南非航空將不再協助獵人攜帶狩獵戰利品回國。絕大部分到非洲旅遊的遊客都是特別為了親眼見識依舊存活著且令人讚嘆的野生動物。我們體認到我們的職責是在於確保這一切能完整地保留給後代子孫,並且阻止會讓這美好的資源陷入危機的狩獵活動。」

提姆最後說道:「我們正積極參與且支持保育非洲野生動物活動,包括犀牛族群保護、復育和反盜獵活動。這些是我們禁運令概念的延伸。」

SAA bans transportation of endangered wildlife hunting trophies

 (SAA) has placed an immediate ban on transportation of hunting trophies of endangered wildlife.

According to Tim Clyde-Smith, SAA’s Country Manager, Australasia, SAA Cargo announced last week in South Africa t is placing an immediate ban on transportation of elephant, rhinoceros, lion and tiger killed as a result of game hunting activity.

 “Hunting of endangered species has become a major problem in Africa and elsewhere with the depletion to near extinction of wildlife that once roamed in prolific numbers. SAA has taken the step of banning all transportation of animals killed in hunting activity as a result,” Tim said.

 “In consultation with key authorities, SAA will no longer support game hunters by carrying their trophies back to their country of origin. The vast majority of tourists visit Africa in particular to witness the wonderful wildlife that remains. We consider it our duty to work to ensure this is preserved for future generations and that we deter activity that puts this wonderful resource in danger,” he said.

“We are actively involved in and supportive of preservation of African wildlife including rhino preservation, regeneration and anti-poaching activities. This is a logical extension of our approach,” Tim concluded.
