Zoos, Wildlife Reserves and Animal Sanctuaries are fast becoming Noah’s Arks for critically endangered species. It is for this reason that The Earth Organization has presented the United Nations with a resolution that will protect captive wildlife in times of war.
requires the protection of facilities where wild animals are kept temporarily or permanently, including facilities used for the preservation, research, breeding, treatment or study of wild animals, as well as the protection of people working at these facilities, local organizations and aid organizations. The resolution also includes the reclassification of certain forms of damage to protected geographical areas during armed conflict as War Crimes in order to safeguard such areas as Wildlife and Marine Reserves.
Lawrence Anthony – our very own Elephant Whisperer – who flew to Baghdad to rescue the Zoo animals in Iraq in the middle of a War-zone. This is his project.
