    Stop the Torture!

    Stop the Torture!
    Citing the “abhorrent” mass slaughter of millions of dogs and cats for their meat each year, including stolen pets, the House of Representatives committee on Wednesday adopted a resolution urging nine Asian countries to outlaw the practice. \\r\\nThe resolution “has tremendous bipartisan support,” fueled by “serious animal cruelty and public health concerns.” Public health officials have raised concerns about rabies or poison in the meat. \\r\\n“In American and most western cultures, we cherish dogs and cats as more than just random animals. They serve as therapy animals, search and rescue assistants, police dogs that aid with drug and bomb searches, they serve at airport security, they are companions, and they are often cherished family members. The extreme cruelty that these animals suffer is abhorrent and we shouldn’t turn a blind eye to these practices.” \\r\\nThe resolution, highlights the annual Lychee and Dog Meat Festival in Yulin — a perennial target for animal rights activists. In 2016, a petition calling on that Chinese city’s government to end the event attracted 11 million signatures. That same year, Hollywood stars including Matt Damon, Joaquin Phoenix and Rooney Mara condemned the festival. See video(Warning! Graphic!!!) \\r\\nHumane Society International and others animal protection groups put the number of dogs killed in Asia for meat every year at roughly 30 million. Rep. Titus said at the hearing that 10 million cats suffer the same fate. \\r\\nThe resolution says that “a considerable number of the dogs and cats in the dog and cat meat trade are stolen pets still wearing collars when they reach the slaughterhouses.” It also declares that eating dog or cat meat “is not part of mainstream Asian culinary practice,” pointing to a June 2016 poll by a Chinese animal welfare group that found 69.5 percent of Chinese respondents had never consumed it. \\r\\nThe measure calls on the governments of the countries listed to enforce laws banning dog or cat meat trade and to curb sales of “leather or fur byproducts” from that activity. It also calls on executive branch officials to raise the issue in talks with their foreign counterparts

    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!

    Florida Panthers are under Attack from United States Government
    It is estimated that there are fewer than 200 Florida panthers left in the world — and they are gravely threatened by booming residential development and the expansion of oil and gas operations in the Big Cypress National Preserve, their home in the Florida Everglades.\\r\\nNow the Trump administration could strip them of Endangered Species Act protections — their last defense against extinction. Tell the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service to keep Florida panthers protected and help bring them back from the brink of extinction.\\r\\nIt is not too late ~ Please sign now...\\r\\n

    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!

    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.

    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!
