“Lufthansa Cargo has announced that it will cease to carry wild animals for commercial purposes. The company has also stated it has agreed to a series of measures to support efforts by Whale and Dolphin Conservation Society and the group Pro Wildlife to protect wildlife populations.

Whale and Dolphin Conservation Society spokesperson, Niki Entrup, said: “”We hope this commitment by Lufthansa will lead to a general turnaround in the international trade in wild animals. Lufthansa’s decision is an important first step towards preventing the wholesale trade in wild animals. Now it is up to other airlines to make the same decision.””
