    Barbaric! End the Yulin Dog Meat Slaughter

    Barbaric!  End the Yulin Dog Meat Slaughter
    Thousands of dogs, many of them are stolen beloved pets, captured and transported over long distances under horrific conditions to Yulin, a city in China\'s Guangxi Autonomous Region. There, they\'re held in crowded cages without food or water until they are killed. Often, they are beaten and their throats are slit in front of other terrified animals by heartless dog meat traders. Most Chinese citizens reject this practice, and .ECO is committed to supporting them in ending this horrendous festival. Last year, thanks to overwhelming international pressure, Yulin authorities announced that they would not support the festival. The result was a subdued event and fewer dogs slaughtered than the previous two years. More recently, the authorities have claimed that the festival won\'t happen this year, but the dog meat traders will continue to stage the event with or without official endorsement. Join us now with the hundreds of thousands of advocates who have taken action against the Yulin Dog Meat Festival. Please sign our petition now to urge the Yulin authorities to intervene and end mass dog slaughter in the name of a festival. No one eats their best friends!

    Demand Italy drop charges against soldier who saved a dying cat!

    Demand Italy drop charges against soldier who saved a dying cat!
    It is quite disturbing that a soldier, Lieutenant Barbara Balanzoni, would be sent to military court in Italy because he was trying to the save the life of a dying cat. Lieutenant Balanzoni has been returned to her civilian life and career as an anesthetist in Tuscany, facing charges of insubordination for saving the life of an animal. Her position in the army was medical officer at Nato in Kosovo. Lt. Balanzoni received an alert from military personnel due to outbursts of cat noises at the infirmary. She noticed a cat, later named Agata, a stray around the area, seemed to be in deep pain. The cat was delivering some kittens and, exhausted, could not deliver the last, which turned out to be stillborn. Without help, this cat, the mom, would have certainly died. With the demise of the cat, not only would the entire area be subjected to total disinfecting, the surviving kittens would be orphans without food; no way to be fed. They too would have passed on if their mother was not saved. In essence, Lt. Balanzoni saved more than one life when attending to the needs of Agata. The veterinary office was in Italy at the time and Balanzoni states “far from disobeying orders, I was following military regulations, which state that, in the absence of a vet, the medical officer should intervene.” So what did the officer do wrong if she was following regulations? Charges against Lieutenant Balanzoni states that she disobeyed her commanding officer when told n one would be "bringing in or having brought in wild, stray or unaccompanied animals.” She faces a year in the military penitentiary. Lt. Balanzoni is due to go to trial in Rome in about a month and we all need to help her by protesting this unjust act and accusations against her. Italy’s oldest animal defense association, Ente Nazionale Protezione Animali is involved in the case and should stand behind the decision of this dedicated soldier who was doing what was in her heart and mind; saving a life. Please sign and share this petition worldwide to take a stand for the dedicated soldier who had compassion to save the life of a dying cat and her kittens!!

    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.

    Help Raise Awareness For Chicken Living Conditions
    Virtually all chickens raised for their flesh (or “broiler chickens” as they are referred to by the meat industry), spend their lives crammed into massive, windowless sheds that typically hold as many as 40,000 birds each. The intense confinement and extreme crowding on factory farms also results in unimaginable filth and disease. Please sign this petition to increase awareness about these deplorable conditions we force these animals to endure.

    No Pollinators! Expect a silent, starving Spring...

    No Pollinators! Expect a silent, starving Spring...
    Food? There’s already been a lot of concern over whether people will be able to feed themselves as the population continues to rise. Forget the human population increasing, though – it’s the decrease in some other species that might really cause a food shortage even more quickly~pollinators. Altogether, the scientific community credits 200,000 different species with transporting pollen and helping crops to grow. Unfortunately, new research finds that 40 percent of the world’s insect pollinator species are in danger of going extinct in the upcoming decades. Bees, butterflies, moths, wasps, ants and beetles all play a role in the critical pollination process, and their numbers are dwindling. While pollinators with vertebrae – like birds and bats – may not be struggling quite as much as the bugs, 16 percent of vertebrate pollinators are considered at risk for extinction as well. These figures come from research by the Intergovernmental Science-Policy Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services, a group with ties to the United Nations. The organization’s report collected data from roughly 3,000 pre-existing studies on pollinator populations that were conducted throughout the world. In fairness, the majority of the research on this subject has focused on species in Europe and North America. Though the existing research in other parts of the world isn’t promising either, it’s a subject that will need to be explored more before declaring that the whole world is imminently doomed. Sadly, ending the pollinator decline isn’t as easy as fixing one thing. Pollinators face a number of threats including:Climate change,Disease,Pesticides,Invasive species,Unsustainable farming practices,Human construction destroying natural habitat. Losing pollinators to these factors has been devastating. Presently, pollinators play a role in growing as much as $577 billion worth of food. 75 percent of all crops are grown with the help of pollinators. From an economical standpoint, this pollinator decline should be a major concern for big agriculture. When it comes to growing crops, birds and insects essentially act as free labor, an invaluable asset that we humans don’t always factor into future costs. When we humans use harmful pesticides and engage in irresponsible farming practices that are correlated to pollinator declines, we aren’t doing ourselves any favors.

    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?
