Kellogg’s: Stop destroying rainforests for cheap palm oil!
We are sisters, Asha and Jia (aged 11 and 9) and we love orangutans. We're big fans of Orangutan Jungle School on Channel 4 and were really upset when we saw that the numbers of orangutans that are being killed and orphaned every year are being increased by companies who want cheap palm oil - and it has to stop now! recently a Greenpeace investigation found that Kellogg’s are still buying their palm oil from unsustainable companies that are destroying rainforests and killing orangutans. The report stated that palm oil traders Wilmar are responsible for more rainforest destruction than any other, and they and companies like them, are selling to Kellogg’s. So we are asking Kellogg’s to stop using these suppliers, to trace the palm oil from seed to shelf and inform the public exactly where it came from. Twenty five orangutans are killed every day due to palm oil. This statement proves even more that we must take action now. As well as wiping out rainforests and the wildlife that thrives within them, cheap and irresponsible palm oil companies are also killing people. Due to the toxic gases of burnt down trees, around 110 people die a year. An area the size of a football pitch is torn down in Indonesia’s rainforest every 25 seconds - this has to stop! Kellogg’s say they use sustainable palm oil but Greenpeace’s investigation shows that they are still buying from palm oil producers that are wiping out rainforests in Indonesia. If Kellogg's agree to stop using cheap and dirty palm oil organisations, this should influence other brands, like Kellogg's, to only use sustainable palm oil. Like most of our friends, we start our day eating Kellogg’s cereals but we’re not going to buy from them any more until they use our money to protect the rainforests, not destroy them. No more empty promises - it’s time for full responsibility and transparency from all the companies you work with to bring us the cereals and snacks we used to love. Please sign our petition now to help protect rainforests and save the orangutans. If we work together, we can make this change!

BAN FOX CUB HUNTING
Cub hunting or “Autumn hunting” as hunt supporters like to call it, is the practice used to train young hounds how to kill foxes! Fox hunting has been banned in the U.K. for 14 years yet it is still going on today. If fox hunting is banned and the hunts use a “trail” why do they still train young hounds to kill foxes? Hounds do not instinctively know how to kill foxes so they must be trained. The hunt surrounds a small wood or copse whilst the young hounds are sent to find the foxes. If a fox manages to escape the hounds, the hunt supporters band their saddles or boots to scare the fox back towards the hounds. How is this still allowed to continue? Action needs to be taken NOW.
Petition to UK Parliament
End Breed Specific Legislation.
Dogs are being killed because of what breed they are. Any incident involving a dog harming a human should be dealt with on an individual basis, not by killing off an entire breed .The government should find a way to monitor owners instead of killing innocent dogs and placing restrictions on dogs that have caused no harm. Blame the deed not the breed. My dog Lola was seized by the police and removed from her family. The police agreed that she is a gentle , well balanced dog, however, because they assessed her with a tape measure, she has been labelled Pitbull “type”. She has to be muzzled and kept on a lead, no more freedom to run and play. Families and dogs are being traumatised by this 28 year , unfair law. The law discriminates dogs on their body shape and not their temperament. I am asking for the law to be changed to protect the public from dangerous and out of control vicious dogs, for them to be assessed on temperament, not their body measurements!

BAN THE SOUTH AFRICAN TRADE IN RHINO HORN AND THE GLOBAL TRADE IN ENDANGERED SPECIES PARTS
On the 5th April 2017 the late, South African Environmental Affairs Minister Edna Molewa announced that she planned to permit the trade in rhino horn domestically and to allow the export internationally of Rhino Horn for 'personal purposes'. After losing a court case she chose the option to trade in rhino horn instead of re-instituting the moratorium on the domestic trade in rhino horn in the correct procedural manner. The South African Government has in the past been accused, and found guilty of corruption at the highest levels. Informed conservationists feared that the implementation process of the proposed permits for trade will be less than perfect. The rhino horn farmers have complained that they have had difficulties with obtaining permits that they have been stymied by the South African government and the bureaucracy of the CITES system. The rhino poaching statistics released in February 2019 have raised many questions. IF the poaching figures do really indicate a reduction in loss of rhino this fact would question the necessity for trade. Poaching figures may be less in the Kruger National Park BUT that is a result of fewer rhino being available to poach. Elephant poaching has increased in the Kruger National Park. Elephant poaching has increased dramatically in neighboring Botswana as discovered by scientist Dr Mike Chase of Elephants Without Borders. Rhino in South Africa are still facing extinction. South Africa has lost half its rhino population since this crisis began. Conservationists have confirmed their own figures that on average three rhino per day are losing their lives to rhino poachers. The opening of the domestic trade of horn has not slowed the extinction of this iconic species. The South African Government are curators of an enormous Rhino Horn stockpile. The black market value of Rhino horn is £51 000 per kilogram. This black market value makes Rhino Horn more valuable than Gold, Platinum for Diamonds per gram. At CoP17 held in Johannesburg in October 2016 the international community voted overwhelmingly AGAINST the trade in Rhino Horn. The rhino horn farmers will be encouraging the South African government to support Swaziland and Namibia’s proposal to legalize the international trade in rhino horn at CITES CoP18 in Geneva, Switzerland in August 2019. Zimbabwe, Zambia, Botswana, Namibia and South Africa have also proposed the lifting of the ban on the sale of their ivory stockpiles. Megan Carr VP Social Media GMFER
Petition to H.E. Mr Manoah Esipisu, Kenyan High Commissioner to the UK
Ask the Kenyan High Commissioner to the UK to stop the dog meat market in Nairobi
The Governor of Nairobi in Kenya proposes opening a dog meat market in the city, supplied by catching and cruelly slaughtering stray dogs. Animal lovers choose to go to Kenya on holiday due to their no-hunting policy but this may change their minds. If so, this proposal will surely have a serious impact on tourism and a knock-on effect on their economy and wildlife conservation which need tourist income. Eating dogs is widespread in Asia but not in Africa - yet. Kenya is a beautiful country with friendly, welcoming people willing to share their breathtaking scenery and stunning wildlife with us. They value their wildlife and the Kenyan Wildlife Service is second to none. This barbarism has no place in the 21st century, particularly in such a wonderful nation.

Change the law on dogs attacking cats
Recently my 11 year old cat was savagely attacked by a dog in our own garden while she was sleeping on the doorstep, who’s owner was walking his dog allowed this dog to roam free without a lead after this dog was known to chase cats and attack them. He had no control over the dog and the cat had been asleep on the doorstep and the cat was dragged off the doorstep by the dog, all that’s on my mind now is how scared she must’ve been in her final moments. We as a family are very disturbed and distraught as we had to go and get the cat out of the bin that the owner of the dog had placed her in. The owner of the dog did not even tell us, we had found out by witnesses who seen the incident take place and described it as “upsetting” and described it as “she was being ragged around like a teddy”, if they had not have told us what happened, then where would we be now? All that would go through our heads is that she is lost and we would be unable to give her the burial she deserved. This incident was reported to Greater Manchester Police and we may as well have been told that they’re not going to do anything. Do you think it’s fair that a dog can savagely attack another dog and action be taken but cats who are loved EQUALLY to dogs cannot have anything done about it? I am calling for a change to the law to allow cat owners to take further action against dog owners who’s dogs brutally attack cats, we also want to change the law that cats are not classed as feral animals as they are loved by their owners. The definition of feral is “ in a wild state, especially after escape from captivity or domestication” how is this the case for a DOMESTICATED cat when they are owned and loved by people? Especially the fact that my cat was within the boundaries of my premises where she should feel safe to sleep and await our arrival home as she always did RIP to our beloved Sparkle �

Temple Elephants in India and Sri Lanka kept in Chains, Beaten, Starved and Tortured
How can we let such beautiful and gentle creatures, who cry like humans, be treated in this barbaric manner and all in the name of religion? What "pacific" Hindu and Buddhist religion allows such torture? And each of these gentle giants has to endure this torture for 40-50 years as they eke out a life for so long. Recently in Sri Lanka an emaciated female elephant was made to walk miles and miles in close shackles during festivities and almost died a miserable death. To make it worse these elephants are "owned" by rich and powerful people and so no action can be taken. A photo shows police officers laughing when the chained elephants are beaten. Poaching is terrible but this is worse. The elephant is mercifully dead at the hands of the poacher. These Temple elephants endure torture for decades. Do we have to be satisfied with ONE elephant, Sunder, being saved by Paul McCartney, Amitabh Bachhan and other celebrities? Let us put a complete stop to this unholy "religious" travesty.
