Dubai: Exotic wildlife have changed stuffed toys for a lot of schoolchildren within the UAE with their parents’ consent, a high official stated.
“We observed the primary problem relates to kids who want to have [exotic] creatures and have fun with them like a toy. I'm mentioning this to attract the interest to who's driving the interest in exotic creatures: the demand comes from kids, ” Dr Elsayed Mohammad, Regional Director in the Worldwide Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW) - Middle East and North Africa, told Gulf News.
Visits in a popular animal market, Dr Mohammad stated, boggl him, especially after Ramadan once the purchasing of those creatures is rife.
“You might find mostly families, not people, visiting the shop using their kids to purchase what vary from reptiles to primates sometimes, animals, and lots of different species, ” Dr Mohammad stated.
Which trend involves no specific group, race, or social status.
“It’s not dependent on expatriate or local people, it isn't dependent on wealthy or poor since you can have an uncommon animal from the marketplace for Dh60. Sturdy lack of knowledge among families.”
“If you compare the number of lions, the number of pythons were imported towards the UAE, you will find that the large issue is driven by kids, teens. Whenever we labored with kids before, we observed that nearly 100 percent from the kids had had foreign animals at least one time within their lives.”
Your comments ought to came throughout a conference with Dr Jane Goodall, famous primatologist, anthropologist and Not Messenger of Peace, who is incorporated in the UAE for that official launch of her Roots and Shoots programme now. This youth-brought community action and learning programme from the Jane Goodall Institute aims to develop community-based methods to issues the youth and grown ups face today.
