    Why does anyone need to eat endangered Whales?

    Why does anyone need to eat endangered Whales?
    Hunting and eating whale meat looks more like a case of misplaced patriotism than anything else, Iceland has stubbornly refused to stop whaling for decades, despite international condemnation. Little economic and even less cultural benefit comes from whaling, but still Iceland continues. It’s exploiting the “scientific” loophole, although of course the hunt is actually for meat, much of which is sold to tourists and almost all the rest exported to Japan. Icelanders themselves eat very little whale meat – it’s not supposed to be very nice – and demand is rapidly dropping in Japan. However, Iceland isn’t planning to stop whaling at all. It’s planning to kill more whales. The government recently announced that in 2014, it plans to kill six percent more minke whales – that’s 13 more individuals. These little whales, the smallest of the baleen whales, face constant threats from pollution, entanglement in fishing gear and climate change. The last thing they need is more hunting. Tell Iceland that national pride shouldn’t and doesn’t come from annihilating whales and to turn its attention to something productive, elsewhere

    Ban the Taiji Dolphin Massacre

    Ban the Taiji Dolphin Massacre
    About half of the dolphins caught in Taiji were exported to China and other countries despite global criticism of the hunting technique to catch them. Live Dolphins fetch about $10,000 each to be caged in marine zoos. The rest are consumed as food. The method of catching the dolphins has been heavily criticized globally as inhumane and cruel by the World Association of Zoos and Aquariums (WAZA) recently forced Japan\'s zoos and aquariums to stop using dolphins caught by the method. Japan\'s zoos and aquariums voted to stop using dolphins caught at Taiji. Moreover, campaigners claim there is insufficient demand in Japan for the meat from dolphins butchered at Taiji and that the high prices of live animals sold to aquariums and dolphin shows is the only thing that sustains the hunt. Dolphins have been shown to be intelligent animals - they deserve so much better than what they are suffering in Taiji. Will you join US in urging the Japanese Government to not only ban the export of live dolphins but to end the inhumane Taiji hunt?

    SAVE THE JAGUAR!

    SAVE THE JAGUAR!
    Revered as deities amongst the Mayan and Aztec peoples, jaguars inspire through their grace and power. These agile hunters once roamed from South America through the southern and central United States, but lost habitat and were killed off as all large predators. After the jaguar was listed as endangered in the United States in 1997 in response to public outcry and petition campaigns. In early 2010, the Service announced it would grant the jaguar protected habitat in the United States as well as develop a recovery plan. It was proposed that the Government set aside more than 50 million acres of jaguar critical habitat in the Southwest. Free from government traps, snares and poisons; and without barriers between the U.S. and Mexico border to ensure that jaguars will always have access to the full extent of their range. Tragically, in March 2009, the Arizona Game and Fish Department euthanized the last then-known U.S. jaguar,Macho B after capturing and fitting him with a radio collar. An independent medical investigation, revealed that the jaguar’s death was at least in part due to agency mismanagement, and called on Fish and Wildlife Service law enforcement to do an independent investigation, which it did. The Arizona Game and Fish was sued to prevent the killing of any more jaguars, and in January 2010, the Interior Department’s inspector general released a report concluding that Macho B’s capture had been intentional and that Game and Fish had no permit to capture jaguars, either intentionally or incidentally. In April 2010, A notice of intent to sue the predator-control branch of the U.S. Department of Agriculture over its use of traps, snares and poisons that risk injuring or killing both jaguars and ocelots in the Southwest; two months later, a notice over the Fish and Wildlife Service’s permit authorizing Arizona Game and Fish to “take” jaguars with traps and snares. In 2011, though, a brand-new, 200-pound male jaguar was spotted roaming the southern Arizona’s Sky Island mountain ranges. He has now been photographed more than 100 times by remote trail cameras in the Santa Rita mountains, less than 30 miles from Tucson including at some locations less than half a mile from the proposed Rosemont Mine, a massive open-pit copper mine that would destroy thousands of acres of the new jaguar’s home range. The new jaguar’s home range is protected as critical habitat, In March 2014 the Fish and Wildlife Service finalized the designation of 764,207 acres as critical for the survival and recovery of jaguars in the United States, including the Rosemont Mine site and key movement corridors in the Santa Ritas and near the border, but unfortunately omitting the rugged Gila headwaters in New Mexico and the pine-clad Mogollon Rim in Arizona. In May 2015, a letter was sent to the Service objecting to its proposed biological opinion that the Rosemont mine wouldn’t compromise jaguar recovery in the United States, after which the Service withdrew its opinion and began to redo the analysis. Through a Freedom of Information Act request, it was learned that the Service issued the opinion despite four different draft opinions from its own scientists asserting the exact opposite conclusion that the mine would be a disaster for the Rosemont jaguar and recovery of the species in general. Is this any way to treat a big cat which is attempting to re-establish itself? We have seen what happens when an ecosystem is disrupted by the miscalculations of humans. SAVE THE ROSEMOUNT JAGUAR!

    You Can Help Save One  of Our Last Natural Treasures
    The proposed Pebble Mine in Alaska's Bristol Bay wilderness may be the worst corporate assault on America's natural heritage that no one’s ever heard of. Bristol Bay's untamed wilderness is home to the greatest wild sockeye salmon runs on the planet, an astounding diversity of wildlife, and a way of life for Native communities that have thrived there for thousands of years. But a Canadian mining company wants to carve a gargantuan open-pit, gold and copper mine out of the heart of this American Eden. The Environmental Protection Agency has confirmed that the Pebble Mine carries catastrophic risk for Bristol Bay. But despite the warnings, Canada's Northern Dynasty Minerals is recklessly pushing ahead with this $6 billion mega-mine. Send an urgent message to Northern Dynastys President telling him to abandon plans for the disastrous Pebble Mine. Please Help Us Stop the Plundering of the Planet!

    Animal testing is outdated and barbaric which has been the course of so much suffering for as long as modern history. Cell culture research has effectively made animal testing redundant. Help end animal testing and together we can move forward as a species.

    Stop the Defenseless Slaughter of Dolphins in Peruvian Waters!

    Stop the Defenseless Slaughter of Dolphins in Peruvian Waters!
    We just saw a report on the news in Peru showing how fishermen are slaughtering up to 15,000 dolphins every year -- to use for bait to catch endangered sharks. The entire story makes us sick -- and now We fighting to end this nightmare. Will you join Us? The Peruvian government is only now starting to react after years of not giving a damn! They're taking action due to the negative publicity! Dolphin hunting has been illegal and punishable with several years in prison, but the authorities have been deaf, dumb and blind -- allowing thousands of dolphins and sharks to be indiscriminately butchered. The government cares a lot about Peru's international reputation, especially for tourism, and if we can make them feel embarrassed with a massive global campaign,we are certain they'll start taking action to end the on going massacre. Help Us stop this brutal slaughter by signing our Petition! Now!
