COVID-19: ABSOLUTE EMERGENCY! SAVE THE BIG APES AND THEIR PROGENITURES OF THE ANNOUNCED TRAGEDY!

To international governments, WHO (World Health Organization), UN (United Nations Organization), IUCN (International Union for Conservation of Nature), CITES (Office of Impact Management on biodiversity), to all government and non-government organizations involved in the protection of biodiversity and to all citizens.

may 17, 2020

Let us avoid at all costs a new human and ecological catastrophe which, insidiously strikes the nursing staff and the great apes of the natural reserves of Central Africa and Southeast Asia, knowing that our closest cousins are much more vulnerable to the Covid-19 that Man!

Avoid forever losing those with whom we share 99.4% of our genetic code (more particularly with bonobos against 98% with other great apes)!

Reminder : on Friday March 20, 2020, the International Order of Veterinarians informed healthcare professionals that medical equipment from veterinary clinics could be requisitioned for hospitals in the event of large crowds… AND IT HAS BEEN IN ALL COUNTRIES OF THE WORLD FACED WITH Covid-19!

Consequently, the persons in charge of the international natural reserves must face today a TERRIBLE SITUATION, vis-a-vis their medical personnel and great apes contaminated or suspected of being it.

Veterinarians find themselves completely idle, abandoned, despised by the striking silence of political leaders and civil societies in the face of their glaring alertness of lucidity and benevolence, while still being forced to face an exceptional epidemic resulting in an unprecedented impact on the high health vulnerability of the great apes who also have to face this deadly epidemic with this highly contagious virus, fatal for the great apes.

Consult the alert given on March 25 by Johannes Refisch, director and program coordinator at the United Nations Partnership for the Survival of Great Apes : "The virus behind COVID-19 threatens the conservation of great apes" ► https://www.companynewshq.com/coronavirus-news/virus-which-causes-covid-19-threatens-great-ape-conservation/

In addition, May 11 was World Day for Endangered Animal Species, but poaching has not stopped, on the contrary, it has increased since confinement.

Since the start of containment, many wild animals belonging to endangered species have been murdered ... there could certainly be many more during this sad year 2020 for the biodiversity of the planet.

"THE POACHING OF RHINOCEROS IS BEING FULL IN SEVERAL AFRICAN COUNTRIES BECAUSE OF CONTAINMENT" ► https://www.nytimes.com/2020/04/08/science/coronavirus-poaching-rhinos.html

Example

in central Africa, poachers take advantage of confinement to hunt even more wild animals for commercial purposes.

They kill where there are few tourists, and where the teams of eco-guards of nature reserves have been reduced following the Covid-19 pandemic.

In fact, since containment, poachers can hunt wherever they want, especially in national parks where the eco-guards of nature reserves are fewer and this, risking their lives as we have recently been able to deplore. through the deadly attack on April 24 which claimed the lives of 13 eco-guards in Virunga National Park in the RDChttps://congofrance.com/nord-kivu-inhumation-de-7-des-13-eco-gardes-du-parc-de-virunga-tues-par-des-presumes-fdlr-2/?fbclid=IwAR3em9noZJonKKEtmrTASHrwbxPEcKXYsHWAlel6DWd36dmpW3BGw8zQI2Ahttps://virunga.org/news/update-on-armed-attack-on-rumangabo?fbclid=IwAR37aF4lW2xLpJdCyS2GbWxyB7jtOE_FhlcskfVRde1B8PbX6C7xI9d3nnk

Reminder:

According to the latest census of researchers from the CNRS and the University of Cardif, the already alarming figure of the remaining populations of great apes would oscillate to date between:

● 720 East African gorillas from the Virunga mountains and the Bwindi forest straddling Rwanda, Uganda and the Democratic Republic of Congo, compared to 100.000 West gorillas living between the Democratic Republic of Congo and Nigeria;

● 30.000 to 50.000 orangutans from Indonesia and Malaysia;

● 170.000 to 300.000 concerning common chimpanzees originating in Central Africa;

● 10.000 to 15.000 concerning bonobos originating in Central Africa;

● 5000 individuals concerning the ash gibbons originating in Southeast Asia.

These latest figures reveal an already catastrophic situation regarding the manifest decline in the various world populations of great apes, except humans: Gorillas, Orangutans, Chimpanzees, Bonobos and Gibbons.

As a result, with the appearance of the Covid-19 our closest cousins ​​are once again in grave danger. This unspeakable new situation could forever seal their disappearance from the surface of our planet!

Indeed, let’s know that great apes only make one small one every 4 to 5 years; they would therefore have very little chance of being able to overcome a new carnage which would strike their populations following this pandemic if Man does not immediately bring them emergency aid.

This is why, on the one hand, our MEDICAL EMERGENCY CELL / MFP, reserved for veterinarians and nursing staff of international protection and conservation structures responsible for the great apes, urgently calls on the French State (signatory to the Washington Convention (1) and partner of IUCN (2)):

(non-exhaustive list)

● FFP2 masks, hydroalcoholic gels, nitrile examination gloves, anti-contamination suits category III Type 3, medical overcoats, protective glasses, visors, caps, medical over-shoes;

This is why, on the other hand, our MEDICAL EMERGENCY CELL / MFP:

● also calls on INDIVIDUALS who wish to help us obtain these medical devices from distributors who still have them.

About us :

The MFP is a European organization dedicated to first aid and the host of non-human endangered primates. Our mission is to stop and reverse the process of degradation of species of primates in the world, endangered by poaching, smuggling, animal testing and animal exploitation in all its forms.

With its experience in first aid, our independent organisation has an operational network in many countries with programs dedicated to the protection of nature. Our skills in the field of primatology are recognized.

The philosophy of MFP is based on dialogue

Our goal is to seek cooperation for the implementation of concrete and lasting solutions all over the world.
