Create more marine protected areas to reduce effect of overfishing on oceanic ecosystems

Overfishing occurs when more fish are caught than the population can replace through natural reproduction and it is a serious issue that is often ignored. It is a problem within the United States but even worse outside of it. Some stocks of large fish have decreased by about 90% in the past 60 years. Overfishing leads to so many deaths of fish (especially large fish) that the oceanic ecosystems are being negatively impacted. By protecting more areas in the ocean and creating more "no fishing" areas across oceans, the effect of overfishing would be reduced and fish populations may begin replenishing themselves. More than 85 percent of the world's fisheries have been pushed to or beyond their biological limits and are in need of strict management plans to restore them. The creation of more "no fishing" zones would only be a step towards stopping overfishing and its harms. Overfishing is an issue that affects everyone, not only fish; it is in everybody's best interest to keep the fish populations healthy.

Stop Killing Dogs in Hangzhou China

Hangzhou, a beautiful city in China recently is have “legal regulations” to regulate street dogs and pets. Officials are beating up dogs to death on the street and drowning them to death in the river. Dogs are not allowed outdoor between 7am to 7pm, if officials see dogs on the street during this time, they take them and seize them. We saw videos of puppies being beaten up to death. We totally agree that people should have their pets on leash and be responsible owners. But when you find a dog off leash, it is the owner who should be punished instead of killing the dog! This is murder! This is not how life should be treated! This truly hurts our heart so much and we really wish we can help

Salviamo l'orso bruno, stipato in un piccolissimo spazio del parco faunistico

Il parco faunistico "Le Cornelle", 24030 Valbrembo (provincia di Bergamo), tiene gli orsi bruni in piccolissimi spazi, non adatti alla loro dimensione, alle loro necessità e i loro bisogni. Vivono in un buco, sono magri e gli orsi sono rimasti senza forze.  Vogliamo salvare questi orsi e chiudere questo spazio angusto in cui sono costretti a vivere. Gli animali, come gli uomini hanno sentimenti. Vivono per essere lasciati liberi. Gli occhi malinconici dell'orso mi hanno profondamente commosso, per questo motivo lotterò con tutte le mie forze per far chiudere quella parte del parco.

Stop Dog-Rickshaw Cruelty in China NOW! Little dogs are forced to Drag Carts is inhuman!

It is heartbreaking watching these little dogs pulling carts with passengers on it.  Worst the well being of the dog is not even being taken care of.  Some collapsed due to exhaustion and even beaten to death. These gentle souls should not be abused and mistreated in such a manner. This need to be Stopped right NOW!

Animal Planet - Help Us Stop The Illegal Dog Meat Trade in South Korea, China and Vietnam

Each of us has a choice, to play the silent witness, act as an accomplice, or to choose every day to act and defend the right to life that is given to all sentient beings. The latter is the stance we choose to take, and we ask that you please stand with us. South Korea continues to support and permit a horrific and illegal dog and cat meat trade that subjects millions of animals to abuse, torture and murder on a daily basis. While animal protection laws have been put in place to prohibit these practices, the government and its law enforcement do nothing to prevent the continued butchering and sales of these animals. All we see are muzzled mouths, tied up feet, blinded eyes, and the same sad look which is fixed and doesn’t change, when the darkness comes and the smell of blood fills the air. Later we will know that the blood of those poor animals was on our hands, and those millions of dogs and cats locked in cages were waiting for us to give a hand, and we were their last resort.  We know that Animal Planet has inspired billions of people everywhere with its knowledge of science and culture. We believe that you can be a voice for these poor animals who have none; we are holding the fate of these animals between our hands and giving it to you - let's make a new history. An age of humanity and tolerance; let's win this battle against such dark forces, giving these beautiful creatures their right to live. We hope that you'll accept to show people - even in a short movie - some of what's happening to dogs and cats in Asia , and how they are sold there as food . Martin Luther King said once that: “The ultimate tragedy is not the oppression and cruelty by the bad people but the silence over that by the good people.”

LA TERRIBLE VERDAD DE LA PERRITA QUE ANDAN EN DOS PATAS

Un vídeo de una perra caminando sobre sus patas traseras se hizo viral con gran rapidez y a raíz de esto se ha destapado una cruel realidad sobre cómo los canes son entrenados para caminar de tal manera. Hace unos días, un vídeo de una perra que caminaba sobre sus dos patas traseras por una calle en China se hizo viral, ella fue vestida con una camisa blanca, unos pantalones y una mochila, a muchas personas les causó gracia verla caminar de esa manera y otras han llegado a pensar que todo es falso, pero tristemente no es así, es real y existe una terrible historia sobre estos perros que caminan erguidos. En Huoshan video, encontraron una cuenta con más de 34.000 seguidores llamada “Wanghong Doudou” o “Viral Smol Bean” en inglés. En esta cuenta dice que la perra se llama “Smol Bean” y que vive en Shanghai, además se han compartido una gran cantidad de vídeos suyos vestida con diferentes trajes y caminando sobre sus patas traseras. No existe mucha información sobre Smol Bean y su padre adoptivo, pero en una cuenta suya de una red social China llamada “Weibo”, tiene más de 1.300 seguidores y aparece en la foto de perfil con un hombre. Además, se encontraron otras cuentas de Huoshan video en donde se comparte contenido de otros perros caminando como lo hace Smol Bean. A raíz de todo esto, se han dado a conocer diversos vídeos que muestran cómo estos canes son obligados de una manera violenta a caminar así. En uno de ellos se puede ver a un perro siendo amenazado y golpeado con una chancla.  En otro, se ve a un sujeto golpeando fuertemente a un perro para enseñarle a tener la postura “ideal”. Recuerda no compartir ese tipo de videos, pues sin querer puedes estás ayudando a incentivar el maltrato hacía estos seres que son obligados a realizar trucos sólo para entretener a las personas Aqui os dejo el link del video que muestra como golpean al can https://youtu.be/CBLlqwv2o6s COMPARTE ESTE POST ¡Y AYUDA A QUE NADIE MAS COMPARTA EL MALTRATO ANIMAL!

Please, let's unite together as a one major world force for the peace and welfare of people and animals in Venezuela. Venezuela, my country is going through a major political, social, and economical crisis that is not fully disclosed to the media, and international forces due to a socialist dictatorship model that is affecting the entire country. Animals, and most people in Venezuela are being neglected due to the shortage of food and medicine.  Ruperta, just like any other animals in Venezuela is starving to death. We need your help to survive her, other animals, and many starving and ill people in Venezuela. Please, sign my petition to reach out to the major national/international animal & human rights organizations that can help put a stop to the ongoing neglect of animals and people in Venezuela.

SAVE ORANGUTANS! Air Icelands essential advert

ProblemHead over to Icelands Social media. A beautiful and sad advert that highlights the things we are doing to our planet. Palm oil, it kills hundreds of Orangutans Every day. Iceland Highlighted this beautifully in their advert telling a story of how they do not sell palm oil and will not this christmas. However, their advert was banned. This could educate so many on conservation as every animal is essential to the ecosystem. But they banned it so many people will be left unaware...SolutionBRING BACK ICELANDS ADVERT. Please help raise awareness on deforestation by signing the petition to help raise awareness on conservation. Animals are dying because of us and now is the time to act more than ever. Personal storyI am a keeper at an animal sanctuary and I have loved animals since a young age. I know the effects just the loss of one animal has on an ecosystem. One animal loss affects all. In my life I have seen what we are doing to the planet. Now is the time to act more than ever. The loss of animals effects us also. No more trees- no more fresh air. Global warming- a national disaster, drouts and even ice ages! no more forests- no more medicines. No more animals- a pretty boring planet left with a selfish species. Please help. Thank you.
