Status: Vulnerable Article The world’s endangered species are under threat from yet another source, in addition to poachers, collectors wanting stuffed rhino heads and Chinese medicine practitioners. Internet shoppers are creating a boom in the sale of exotic animals that represents another nail in the coffin for many creatures threatened with extinction. This is according to a report compiled by the International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW). The report “Caught In The Web - Wildlife Trade On The Internet” found in “an intensive one-week Web search”, 146 live primates, 5,527 elephant products, 526 turtle and tortoise shells, 2,630 reptile products and 239 wild cat products for sale. There were also unspecified numbers of other products.
The report represents the tip of the iceberg. Experts estimate the lucrative illegal global trade is worth billions of dollars a year. The World Wide Web exacerbates the situation. “Trade on the Internet is easy, cheap and anonymous. The result is a cyber black market where the future of the world’s rarest animals is being traded away,” said IFAW’s Phyllis Campbell-McRae. The report recommended tougher worldwide protection: “The current legal framework and enforcement efforts are inadequate to deal with this appalling situation. A more effective response is essential.” Ms. Campbell-McRae warned: “Trade in wildlife is driven by consumer demand, so when the buying stops, the killing will too. Buying wildlife online is as damaging as killing it yourself.” Appalling(espantoso/horrible)
Inadequate( incapaz/insuficiente) Internet trade threatens exotic animals Humanlike Violence Is Not Seen In Other Animals - by Prof. Mark Bekoff Cruelty, violence, and warlike behaviors in other animals are extremely rare
When discussing violent behavior in humans newscasters and other people quite often refer to those who commit these acts as "animals" or say they're "acting like animals". However, this dismissal is based on a lack of knowledge about the latest scientific research on animals that clearly shows that individuals of many species are far more cooperative, peaceful, kind, compassionate, empathic, and nice than previously thought.
So, do animals fight with one another? Yes. Do they routinely engage in cruel, violent, warlike behaviors? Not at all; they're extremely rare. Thus, we can learn a lot about who we really are from paying attention to what we are learning about the social behavior of other animals, and harness our own innate goodness to make the world a better place for all beings.
