Red de zeehonden: stop de commerciële zeehondenjacht in Canada. Kom in actie!

Het is tijd dat de commerciële zeehondenjacht in Canada stopt. Ieder voorjaar worden er zeehondenpups van 3 weken tot 3 maanden oud op gewelddadige wijze afgeschoten, doodgeknuppeld en gevild. De karkassen worden op het ijs achtergelaten om daar te vergaan, of in zee gegooid. Deze zeehonden sterven onnodig, voor een industrie die alleen maar dankzij overheidssubsidies overeind blijft. Het grootste deel van de wereld heeft geen behoefte aan of interesse in zeehondenproducten. En toch blijft het doden doorgaan. De nieuwe premier van Canada, Justin Trudeau, heeft een historische kans om voor eens en altijd een einde te maken aan de commerciële zeehondenjacht. Kom vandaag nog in actie om de zeehonden te redden. Roep premier Justin Trudeau en minister van Visserij en Oceanen, Hunter Tootoo, op een plan te ontwikkelen om de commerciële jachtlicenties af te kopen en hiermee de commerciële zeehondenjacht te stoppen.

Save Zimbabwe's Baby Elephants

Twenty-four baby elephants, some as young as two years old, were taken from their families for export into a life of captivity earlier this year. Elephants have deep family bonds — this loss is devastating to the elephants left behind. And the captured young – stolen from their natural habitat and all they know -- have a poor chance of survival. Sadly, this practice is legal and it seems that the Zimbabwe government has every intention of continuing with the capture and export of even more young elephants. Urge Zimbabwe's Ministers for Environment and Tourism to stop its policy of exporting baby elephants.

Stop the mass killing of Bali's dogs

The Governor of the island of Bali ordered the mass killing of roaming dogs.  Thousands of innocent dogs are killed every year, often suffering slow and painful deaths. The Governor claims free-roaming dogs will lead to the spread of rabies.  But human and animal health experts have proven that culling doesn’t work to control rabies. In fact, it can result in the spread of the disease.  Often, dogs that have already been vaccinated are among the victims of a mass killing. Tell the governor to stop the mass killings.
