Dear All,

For many years we have seen ivory, different animal skins, rhino horns, etc for sale on the streets of the city of Lubumbashi and through our NGO we have decided to act against that illegal trade.

february 2008 - 2 leopard skins for sale

Therefore, since June 2009, along with the local authorities, J.A.C.K. has participated to the confiscation of  28kg of ivory, one elephant foot (to be used as umbrella stand??), 1 serval skin and 2 galago skins.

wild dead animal items confiscated

The most recent seizure was the one of a  leopard (picture below) which has been killed in the recent weeks as the skin isn't completely dry.

march 2010 - 1 leopard skin

These confiscated items are safely kept by J.A.C.K. which has been allowed by the Ministry of Environment to keep and use these latters as didactic material during educational sessions and anti-poaching exhibition.

june 2009 - elephant foot Remember, the J.A.C.K. NGO can't work alone and needs your help, awareness and support to continue its actions.

 Thank you,

R
