International Group

Open letter by Naturefund on Mitsubishi ladies and gentlemen, I am Managing Director of conservation organisation Naturefund, which this year is partner of the Atlantis natural and environmental Film Festival of the city of Wiesbaden. “The opening film the end of the line” with the German title the inconvenient truth about our oceans “has made me very concerned. Did you know that about 90% of all large fish were caught off already? I was particularly concerned about the message that the International Group sells Mitsubishi not only cars and electrical appliances, but also actively participates in the overfishing. Is it true that Mitsubishi buys currently from 40 to 60 percent of the global catch of bluefin tuna that is threatened by extinction and freezes? Are you aware that your group thus directly contributing to the eradication of this now rare species? The bluefin tuna is found in the Atlantic and the Mediterranean and considered delicacy in Japan because of its tasty flesh. It is used mainly as sushi and the demand After sushi is increasing worldwide. 3D3463%26cropY1%3D505%26cropY2%3D3511’>Daniel Lubetzky. Because this species is becoming increasingly rare, even for the meat prices. Although the blue fin tuna is close to eradication, Mitsubishi has expanded its frozen and transport capacities and commissioned larger, modern fishing boats with the fishing of bluefin tuna in 2008. Fisheries experts and internal suggested that Mitsubishi specifically sets frozen stocks of bluefin tuna. If there are no more bluefin tuna, you can request a much higher price for your estimated 60,000 to 70,000 tons of frozen tuna. Is it true that Mitsubishi intentionally contributes of bluefin tuna to extinction, because your group, if there is no bluefin tuna can sell its frozen tuna stocks with more profit? Want to Mitsubishi really make money with the extinction of a species? The destruction of a species due to a short-term profit intention does not make sense, because humanity is intact ecosystems in the oceans dependent.

In European Union

No humane changes learned in 1990, however, such as the Fund law or the legal allocation of animals. In these areas you continue introduced provisions on early April 2003 in the Switzerland. Animal no matter – EU. In European Union law, animals still largely considered things. The Foundation is committed for the animal in the law, that this will change.

Source: wikipedia.de, abstract ideal of the Foundation for the animal in the law. Wild animals from the people independent and therefore not as domesticated to observing animals should not be kept in captivity. This consequence arises in particular from the following considerations: 1.Tiere are part of their countries of origin and inextricably tied to this and the prevailing living conditions. No one has the right to snatch animals of their home, making to property and to use for their own interests in foreign countries. This Heimatrechtzu, which they also cannot be the subject of trade and farming is also animals that have been born in captivity.

2.Das lifelong imprisonment and confiscate is a serious violation of their dignity for the animals. In addition, this contempt if no or only insufficient retreats offered Zoo animals, so that they constantly the gaze of the viewer are vulnerable. Lack of respect for Zoo animals is evident, for example, in the fact, that again and again animals from visitors be teased, stressed or even abused. Sometimes even deaths among zoo animals occur, when about to mindlessly into the Suffocating enclosure thrown objects. 3.Die is the main motivation for the operation of zoological gardens typically financial nature. Monetary interests but serve as a measure of well-being and life of wild animals, important for our society’s basic moral values will be denied. Short-term realizable assets the Zoological Garden is not only legally allowed in its present form, but also socially appreciated. A general departure from zoos is not realistic in this context.
