    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

    Help raise plastic disposal awareness
    Plastic consumption has grown at a tremendous rate worldwide. They play an increasingly important role in most aspects of modern life and as a community, we are becoming more dependent on the benefits they provide. This has caused the disposal of plastic waste to emerge as an important environmental challenge due to its non-degradable nature. Normal plastics will not decompose biologically and the amount of plastic waste in our surroundings is steadily increasing.. With your support, we can raise awareness about this rapidly growing problem and find a way to reduce our plastic waste footprint.

    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!

    Urge the U.S. to Take Action to Abolish Nuclear Weapons! Ban the Bomb!

    Urge the U.S. to Take Action to Abolish Nuclear Weapons!  Ban the Bomb!
    Two decades after the end of the Cold War, more than 17,000 nuclear weapons remain in the world. The usage of nuclear weapons would affect us all in ways we can begin to imagine. While it is unlikely that the U.S. and Russia would use their arsenals, nuclear powers like India and Pakistan pose a more likely threat, even if they possess less than .5% of the world’s nuclear arsenal. Climate researchers have concluded that the soot produced by a limited nuclear war in Asia would impact crop production as far away as America’s breadbasket. The resulting "nuclear famine" would last a decade and put up to 2 billion people at risk of starvation. Last year, 128 national governments sent delegations to the Oslo conference on the Humanitarian Impact of Nuclear Weapons, but the United States government was conspicuously absent. Why? This February, Mexico is hosting the second such conference in Nayarit, Mexico. Please direct the President and State Department to send an official U.S. delegation to this important conference. The world is asking for a faster reduction in nuclear weapons. It is time for the United States to lead. Ban the Bomb!

    Absolutely No Reason to be Testing on Baby Animals!
    The University of Washington,continues to perform sickening experiments on monkeys. Employees at the school perform grisly vivisections -- experiments on live animals -- drilling holes into the skulls of monkeys, implanting coils on their eyes, and tearing infant monkeys away from their mothers to intentionally cause psychological trauma. Please sign this petition to demand that the National Institute of Health stop sending taxpayer dollars to the University of Washington to fund these cruel and unnecessary experiments. The primate research taking place at U of Washington is scientifically meaningless. Experiments on baby monkeys are fraudulent and cannot be extrapolated to humans, but U of Washington vivisectors routinely perpetrate barbaric experiments on baby monkeys such as inducing convulsions, disfiguring eyes, suffocating them, torturing babies while still in their mothers wombs, causing deformities and more. If the babies don't die on their own, they are killed at one year of age and thrown away. For this the vivisectors received over $18 million of our tax dollars between 2010-2011 alone and another $12 million to breed baby monkeys for other laboratories to torture. Other schools, including Harvard University, have been forced to shut down their live animal experiments -- if enough of us speak up, we can get the U of Washington to do the same. Doing inhumane tests on animals is one small step away from using humans!

    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!
