援救㺢㹢狓保护区,期待您的参与
六月24日星期天,一群武装盗猎者袭击了位于刚果盆地的㺢㹢狓野生动物保护区总部(此保护区已被联合国教科文组织列入濒危世界遗产名录)。盗猎者杀害了至少七名保护区工作人员,手法相当残忍。其余的工作人员被劫为人质,至今下落不明。保护区所有的公共设施都被破坏,同时,埃普卢繁育研究站所有的15只㺢㹢狓都被杀害(㺢㹢狓:一种濒危的森林动物,与长颈鹿很有很近的亲缘关系)。埃普卢在㺢㹢狓的保护工作中扮演着至关重要的角色。埃普卢作为㺢㹢狓的基因、物种库,向全世界的保护项目提供㺢㹢狓新的遗传繁殖群。
 
在埃普卢保护区总部惨案发生后一天,联合国教科文组织与㺢㹢狓野生动物保护区主任、国家保护区当局(Institut Congolais pour la Conservation de la Nature 刚果自然保护研究所)总负责人会面,对此次事件进行评估并且立即采取对应措施。联合国教科文组织的态度与鼎力协作一直以来并且将继续有效地促成保护区取得积极成果。同时,联合国教科文组织是㺢㹢狓保护运动强有力的支持者。
 
作为联合国教科文组织的协作组织之一,RRF(快速反应基金:FFI总部名下一个快速反应基金,用来救助处于紧急受威胁的自然遗产地)正在呼吁全世界的社会团体帮助在该区域快速建设一个健全、稳定的政府机构,同时在埃普卢重新开始㺢㹢狓繁育工作。为了以上目标,RRF正在寻求即刻的支持以完成以下事宜:1)重新建设被毁坏的基础设施(工作人员宿舍,公园办公室,埃普卢繁育中心楼);2)更换毁坏的设施;3)为被害工作人员家属提供资助。
 
请大家共同关注,并给予相应的支持!
 
在过去的5年中,RRF已成功为31起世界自然遗产地突发状况提供快速的支持,这些遗产地遍布世界。
 
RRF是由联合国教科文组织与野生动植物保护国际(FFI)发起成立的机构。
 
FFI长期以来与刚果民主共和国内的组织保持着合作伙伴关系,同时,FFI一直都确保将捐款尽可能被有效利用。捐款中的3%交予联合国教科文组织,用于今后该保护区的项目与监测,确保这一区域的安全。

被盗猎者杀害的㺢㹢狓

My story

 
On Sunday June 24, a group of armed bandits/poachers attacked the headquarters of the Okapi Wildlife Reserve in the Congo Basin, a UNESCO World Heritage site, killing at least 7 park staff – with extreme cruelty in some cases. Others were taken hostage or are still unaccounted for. All park infrastructure was destroyed and the 15 okapi, a rare forest animal closely related to the giraffe, at the Epulu Breeding and Research Station were all killed. Epulu plays a central role in protecting the future of the okapi by serving as a reservoir for the infusion of new genetic stock the okapi populations in global conservation programmes around the world.
 
The day after the destruction of the Epulu HQ, UNESCO met with the Director of Okapi Wildlife Reserve as well as the Director General of the country’s protected areas authority (Institut Congolais pour la Conservation de la Nature), to assess the situation and define the immediate response needs. UNESCO’s position and networks have, and will be, effective in catalysing positive results for conservation, and UNESCO are strong supporters of this campaign.
 
As part of the UNESCO network, the Rapid Response Facility is calling out for support among the global community in helping quickly restore a full and stable governmental presence in the area and restart okapi breeding activities at Epulu. For this, the RRF seeks immediate support for the following: i) rebuilding the destroyed infrastructure (staff accommodations, park offices, Epulu breeding centre buildings; ii) replacing destroyed equipment; iii) and providing support to the families of murdered park staff.
 
Please donate to this appeal now.
 
If you give permission to be contacted, donors will receive an electronic report, with pictures, on the success of the appeal and the work accomplished with the funds raised.
 
Over the past 5 years, the RRF has been able to provide rapid support to 31 emergency situations in natural World Heritage sites around the world.
 
The RRF is an initiative of UNESCO and Fauna & Flora International (FFI).
 
Donations will be handled by the RRF Secretariat at FFI. FFI has longstanding partnerships with organisations operating in the Democratic Republic of Congo and will ensure that donations are used as effectively as possible. 3% of the total raised will go to UNESCO for future missions and monitoring as the security situation at this site stabilises.
