Emi­rates takes off with cam­paign to raise aware­ness of il­le­gal wildlife trade

7 Days in Dubai - - DEAR 7 DAYS -

“Des­per­ate sit­u­a­tion calls for des­per­ate mea­sures.”

DAV DAVM “Great. Per­haps ba­sic an­i­mal ed­u­ca­tion in school par­tic­u­larly for do­mes­tic pets should be manda­tory since some peo­ple don’t un­der­stand that hu­mans need to care for these types of an­i­mals since they will not sur­vive on their own. The re­cently pro­posed 500k and 6-month jail fines will do in­fin­itely more harm than good and cre­ate an even greater di­vide be­tween hu­mans and liv­ing na­ture.”

EILÉEN LEE-CON­NOR

“Thank you. ..though some peo­ple are still keeping ex­otic and en­dan­gered an­i­mals as pets.”

JOSE OLESISINA

“Looks amaz­ing!” AN­NETT JO­HANS­SON
