    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 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.

    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?

    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!

    Pangolins need to be Protected before Extinction!

    Pangolins need to be Protected before Extinction!
    Pangolins are unique mammals that have an extremely important ecological role. Just one of these scale-covered anteaters consumes up to 70 million insects per year, providing millions of dollars of free pest control. Pangolins also improve soil quality as a result of their burrowing behavior. Tragically, these incredible animals are being driven to extinction by the illegal wildlife trade. \\r\\n\\r\\nPlease sign and share this petition urging the governments of China, Vietnam, and Indonesia to develop comprehensive and effective strategies to end the illegal trafficking of pangolins within their borders. International efforts to save the pangolin from extinction are having limited effectiveness - full participation of these governments is essential to protecting this amazing animal. Please demand that they take action before it is too late!

    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.
