Breaking! Qatar Airways Cargo Saves Wildlife With ‘WeQare’ Initiative By Flying Endangered Species Back To Their Natural Habitat

Qatar Airways Cargo announced today that it is launching Chapter 2 of WeQare: Rewild the Planet.’ The cargo carrier is committed to preserving wildlife and endangered species and has pledged to transport these animals back to their natural habitat, free of charge.

“We are concerned about the legacy we leave for the future generation. As the world’s leading cargo carrier, we strongly believe in giving back to the community and protecting our environment,” Guillaume Halleux, Qatar Airways Chief Officer of Cargo, said in a statement. “We all know that animals are important to preserving ecological balance which in turn ensures existence and stability of the environment. Through Chapter 2 – Rewild the Planet, we want to encourage this preservation, and that is why we are offering free transport to bring wild animals back to where they belong.”

The airline has released a series of advertisements and a special video to commemorate the announcement and importance of Chapter 2. Through them, Qatar Airways Cargo aims to raise awareness of such issues among its customers and air cargo stakeholders.

All the chapters of WeQare’ are based on the core pillars of sustainability – environment, society, economy, and culture, and are supported by the employees of Qatar Airways Cargo.

The cargo carrier believes that such positive actions will have a ripple effect and inspire people to include sustainability on their agenda. Qatar Airways Cargo will launch more chapters in the coming months, all of which are directly linked to the everyday activities of the carrier.

As an inaugural signatory to the Buckingham Palace Declaration in March 2016, and a founding member of the United for Wildlife Transport Taskforce, Qatar Airways has a zero tolerance policy towards the illegal trade of endangered species. The cargo carrier’s initiative to bring wildlife back to their natural habitat is consistent with the airline’s commitment to fight wildlife trafficking and the illegal trade of wild animals.

Wildlife trafficking is the world’s fourth-largest illegal trade, estimated to be worth $19 billion per year. The trade in endangered species and plants, fueled by demand for jewelry, ornaments, and unproven medical treatments, is needless and has disastrous consequences for global conservation efforts.

You can help all animals and our planet by choosing compassion on your plate and in your glass. #GoVeg
