Isaac To Be Saved From Trafficking!

Wednesday, April 18th, 2012

It is imperative that endangered animals be microchipped in order to prevent the illegal sale and transportation of these animals. When an animal is classified as “Endangered” this can make them a hot commodity and, therefore, far more valuable from a financial or criminal perspective. Microchipping them keeps everyone more accountable. The South wrote an article back in January, 2012  about a cheetah that had been seized at The Heathrow Airport coming from South Africa and bound for Russia. Luckily the renamed cheetah “Issac” was seized, and thereby saved.

How Do Captive Chimps Rate?

According to Care2, endangered wild chimpanzees have been on the endangered species list for decades. However, there are loop holes for the protection of the captive chimp. Now, thanks to The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (who initiated a review of the issue) they are being considered for the same protection. Gotta love these guys at the USFWS!
