Free Lasah the elephant from daily abuse
Lasah is a 37 year old wild born elephant who was captured and taken into captivity when he was a baby, separated from his mum and herd, and who has suffered in zoos, tourism and entertainment for over 25 years. Lasah has been forced to work in a logging camp, lived in zoos including Singapore Zoo, perform in shows including in a popular Malaysian entertainment outlet and used in commercials and the 1999 film Anna and the King. Eleven years ago, he was sent to the popular Malaysian tourist island, Langkawi and since then has been used by the profit-making Langkawi Elephant Adventures [LEA]. There, Lasah is used for elephant rides and lives all alone, which is devastating for a social animal like elephants. LEA also continues to offer Lasah for other commercial purposes on their website. In July last year, activists exposed photos of Lasah chained on all four legs behind public eyes during LEA's closing hours. In March 2017, eight months after the campaign for Lasah started, the Malaysian environment ministry said that Lasah is chained on two feet (when not exploited for tourist money). Lasah has suffered for too long. This abuse must stop.

Enough is Enough! No More Dead Tigers .
Cukuplah! Cegah Kematian Harimau Berulang
Enough is Enough! #NoMoreDeadTigers Malaysians were recently shocked by the loss of SIX wild Malayan tigers in the span of a single month. They were among the last 300 tigers that now fight to stay alive. Extinction is real. These are just the latest cases in a string of deaths. Illegal hunting and trade, driven by demand for wildlife from within and outside Malaysia, remains the most devastating threat to tigers and other endangered species. We demand that poachers be brought to justice and landowners of tiger habitat, be it states, corporations or individuals, bear responsibility to save wild tigers. We call for: Maximum sentences to be handed out to criminals convicted of killing or trading in tigers and other endangered species. Civil society to be allowed to support the investigation and prosecution process of wildlife crimes, and alternative penalties be used against wildlife criminals. Sustainable forestry certification to be re-evaluated for forests where tigers are killed. Highest priority to be given to maintain tiger habitats under natural forest cover and to halt further forest fragmentation within the Central Forest Spine landscape. Let the saving of tigers symbolise our capacity for change, to do the right thing. We will tolerate NO MORE dead tigers and empty forests. We urge everyone to act now. Please add your voice and sign this petition today! MYCAT is calling for 100,000 signatures to seek justice for the Malayan tiger Read the FULL petition at http://bit.do/harimau2016 Cukuplah! #CegahKematianHarimauBerulang Baru-baru ini, rakyat Malaysia digemparkan dengan kehilangan ENAM ekor harimau Malaya liar dalam masa satu bulan. Harimau-harimau tersebut adalah antara 300 ekor harimau terakhir yang kini berjuang untuk terus hidup. Kebarangkalian kepupusan amat tinggi. Kejadian-kejadian ini merupakan kesinambungan ancaman yang dihadapi oleh harimau liar sejak dahulu lagi. Pemburuan dan perdagangan haram, yang didorong oleh permintaan untuk hidupan liar dari dalam dan luar Malaysia, masih merupakan ancaman utama terhadap harimau dan spesies terancam yang lain. Kami menuntut bahawa pemburu haram dibawa ke muka pengadilan dan pemilik tanah yang merangkumi habitat harimau, sama ada Kerajaan Negeri, syarikat atau individu, memikul tanggungjawab untuk selamatkan harimau liar. Kami menyeru supaya: Pemburu serta peniaga haram harimau atau hidupan liar terancam lain yang telah disabitkan kesalahan dijatuhkan hukuman maksimum. Masyarakat sivil dibenarkan untuk menyokong proses penyiasatan dan pendakwaan jenayah hidupan liar, dan kaedah hukuman yang berlainan digunakan terhadap penjenayah hidupan liar. Pensijilan hutan mampan dinilai semula bagi kawasan hutan di mana harimau dibunuh. Keutamaan tertinggi diberikan untuk memelihara habitat harimau di bawah litupan hutan semulajadi, dan menghentikan pemecahan terusan dalam landskap Central Forest Spine. Biarkan usaha selamatkan harimau melambangkan kemampuan kita untuk berubah, untuk melakukan perkara yang betul. Kami TIDAK MAHU menerima kematian harimau dan kewujudan hutan kosong yang tiada haiwan. Kami menggesa semua rakyat Malaysia untuk bertindak sekarang. Sila sertai kami dan tandatangani petisyen ini dengan segera! MYCAT menyeru supaya 100,000 orang menyokong petisyen ini bagi menegakkan keadilan untuk harimau Malaya. Bacakan petisyen PENUH di http://bit.do/harimau2016

Emergency: SAVE THE BIRDS.
Boycott + Postpone dangerous "For the Birds" event.
Help us protect our wildlife. This week onwards it is in danger. Would you want crowds of people coming through your bedroom whilst you slept at night, with bright coloured lights, loud noises, fear inducing recordings of shouting and singing, the running of generators and operating large mechanical giants? Tormenting you away from your children who need your vital, life-saving care. That is what will happen to the birds and wildlife in a "species-rich" Local Nature reserve and an area of the South Downs National Park in Brighton this week onwards from 8:30pm-11.40pm.. yes, in peak breeding season. The event which launched at the weekend in Brighton is ironically called "For the Birds". We do not understand how such a thing has been allowed to go ahead and get this far. It is planned to continue for 17 nights, from 6-28th May, every night except mondays and tuesdays. We urge you to boycott the event and call for it to be postponed. Halting further performances until breeding season is over. The location is by no means suitable, and the timing could not be more wrong. Previous events and permissions for "For the birds" related to such a performance taking place in WINTER... a completely different scenario to Spring. We are not against art, or creativity but the timing of this creative performance and its impact has been dangerously overlooked with potentially fatal consequences for our wildlife. Not only this year, but impacting the future population and generations of species in the area. Just this morning and all week long, special species of birds have been spotted in the area by an ornithologist, whether they will be around after tomorrow if the event goes ahead, it is doubtful. Sign now and put pressure on BRIGHTON FESTIVAL, the Artists and BRIGHTON CITY COUNCIL to please POSTPONE THE EVENT, until thorough investigations have taken place and the ludicrous timing is changed. Further information on the event can be found hereInformation on the "species-rich" area as described by Brighton's own council can be found here Laws laid out here on Gov.uk state:"All wild bird species, their eggs and nests are protected by law. You must always try to avoid harming birds or to use measures which do not kill or injure them before considering taking harmful action. In most cases, you should be able to avoid harming birds. You should avoid harming birds by timing your work to avoid the breeding season or by using a range of methods that deter birds but don’t harm them."These activities can affect wild birds, particularly during breeding season: trimming or cutting trees, bushes, hedges and rough vegetation renovating, converting or demolishing a building creating disturbance, eg noise, lighting and vibration taking actions to prevent problems, eg shooting birds or removing nests" | The event must be postponed |

Say NO to Council's plans to sacrifice green lungs of Royal Borough of Windsor &Maidenhead
The Council is currently pursuing plans to build thousands of new houses in prime parkland, currently the site of Maidenhead Golf Course.They also plan to build on Green Belt fields to the west of Windsor, eroding the precious gap between Windsor and Maidenhead. YES, we badly need more homes, especially affordable homes. BUT, we also care about the quality of the air our children breathe. We care about nature, wildlife and green space, which make our Borough a pleasant place to live. The Maidenhead site, about the size of 70 football pitches, is the green lung of Maidenhead, home to hundred-year old trees, bluebell woods and local wildlife. This scheme is putting too many of the wrong houses in the wrong place, and with no guarantees that any of these houses will be truly affordable. The site to the west of Windsor (HA11) is the second largest site on Green Belt land, where 450 homes are planned, and includes two garden centres. If you care about keeping Royal Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead a pleasant Borough to live in, sign this petition addressed to Cllr Coppinger as the Council’s Lead Member for Planning and also share with friends and neighbours on social media. These sites are the largest of several schemes to build thousands of new homes in Windsor & Maidenhead. The Council plans will destroy the site, swapping grass for tarmac and trees for roof tiles. They have no care for the impact on the wildlife, and no convincing plans to deal with the thousands of additional cars, the diesel fumes and mid-week traffic jams that will bring parts of Maidenhead & Windsor to a standstill. We are calling upon the Royal Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead to think again. We are in favour of new housing, we just want the Council to reconsider the Plan of what type of homes and where they should go. Did you know: The Council is pressing ahead with its plans, before the proposal Local Plan has even been reviewed by an Examiner? The Council has approved spending £20m of our money trying to bring forward their plans – buying up homes and land to create access for the scheme? We do desperately need more homes – more affordable homes; But we doubt that these schemes will deliver these affordable homes. Click here to see why: https://youtu.be/wdp2WAZWjZQ Some recent publicity stating that that the two garden centres in Windsor (on HA11) no longer form part of the Borough Local Plan are incorrect. In fact the two garden centres will remain in the Local Plan, will be removed from the Green Belt and will remain allocated for development. This parkland was entrusted to the Borough for the benefit of the people of Maidenhead for sports and leisure activities. How does the idea of 2000 homes with the accompanying traffic jams and GP waiting lists represent a “benefit”? Areas around Maidenhead and Windsor already suffer from poor air quality – this is the air that we and our children breathe. Asthma and other breathing conditions can only get worse if we sacrifice our Green Belt and mature trees. The parkland at the golf course an the HA11 are just two of many Green Belt sites set to go and other Green Belt sites will be similarly blighted if the local plan proceeds in its current form. Why did the Borough not do what the government suggests and carry out a full Green Belt review that may have identified better alternative sites? And why was the option of creating a new settlement with its own tailor made infrastructure, favoured by many local Councils, never given serious consideration? Please sign this petition to say NO to the Royal Borough’s decision to promote development of this scale on Windsor & Maidenhead’s Green Belt. Show Councillors, elected to serve us, that riding roughshod over our views is not the way things should be done.

Petition to Councillor Phil Davies Wirral Borough Council
Say NO to a Golf Resort and Housing Development in West Wirral - SAVE OUR GREEN BELT!
Wirral Council is proposing to override planning policy to allow a private developer to build a golf resort and luxury housing estate on a huge 295 acres of Green Belt Land between Hoylake, West Kirby and Meols. The development includes a 250 bed - 5 star hotel, conference facilities and spa, 2 golf courses and clubhouses, a links academy, large car park (for 1000s of cars), a new link road, maintenance buildings and, so far, 160 luxury houses and 40 luxury apartments (all Band H). It is clear that this is, in fact, a Green Belt Housing Development with the “smokescreen” of a Golf Resort attached! This would set a VERY DANGEROUS PRECEDENT for development on Green Belt Land. Already a developer has submitted plans for a further housing estate in West Kirby adjacent to the proposed Golf Resort! There are other submissions for Green Belt Land in Greasby and Saughall Massie. THE PREFERRED DEVELOPER HAS A DUBIOUS TRACK RECORD The “Nicklaus” Joint Venture Group (NJVG) is actually a group of developers from South Wales. Jack Nicklaus is not a director but he will be paid a massive fee for designing the golf course. The NJVG has a dubious track record, including a bankruptcy and failing to deliver a promised Hilton Hotel at their previous “resort” development in Llanelli. However they did build 175 executive homes on the site - they then put their housing construction company into liquidation owing over £1million to local businesses. Their other company, which sold the houses, was not affected by the bankruptcy. To date, the promised hotel in Llanelli ,and all the associated jobs and tourism, have failed to materialise. PLANNING & FINANCE The development contravenes planning policy. Once planning permission is approved for the Golf Resort Houses, then more houses could be built on Wirral's Green Belt.. Wirral Council is undertaking millions of pounds of cuts to essential services. The Council have already spent £237,000 on the resort. They have just committed to spending a further £600,000 of Council Tax Payers money to undertake surveys and studies ON BEHALF OF A PRIVATE DEVELOPER who then stands to make a massive profit from a luxury housing estate. This spending may not be the last that we are asked to pay for! Consultants’ reports have stated that the resort IS NOT FINANCIALLY VIABLE without the enabling housing development. In 16 years of trying to promote this resort, the Council has not been able to find a developer until the luxury housing estate was added to the plan. After the tender exercise, all the developers pulled out apart from NJVG. ENVIRONMENT The site is on bio-diverse farmland which is home to a wide variety of fauna and flora, including species of national and international importance. Golf courses are highly mechanised and intensively managed with high volumes of water, pesticides and fertilizers. The proposed course is an American-style parklands resort which will be exactly the wrong kind of habitat for the species which currently use the area as an undisturbed refuge. INFRASTRUCTURE AND TRAFFIC The housing development and resort would have an impact on local infrastructure and services (such as schools and GP surgeries). The new Hoylake By-pass will significantly increase traffic from the M53 through Saughall Massie and put pressure on the surrounding area. The developer will not be funding this By-pass - the Council are to seek grant funding or will use the profits from selling the land - for a By-pass that is only being built because the land is being sold! FLOODING The site is on the River Birket Floodplain. Over recent years, we have been reminded time and time again of the perils of building on flood plains. Surface water run-off from the large paved areas of the development (car parks, road, large roof areas and the housing estate) will increase flood risk for Meols and Moreton. CONSULTATION Wirral Council has undertaken only a weak public consultation exercise. Of the 1400 responses that the Council received, 1311 were either opposed or had concerns. Wirral Council has not consulted the community about alternative options for the site. JOBS AND TOURISM Wirral Council states that the resort would promote tourism and provide just 170, mostly low paid, low skilled jobs. We already have plenty of golf Courses on the Wirral. The tourism case is not proven and 5 star resorts are designed to keep tourists “in resort”. The hotel and spa would be a competitor to the businesses in West Kirby, Hoylake, Meols and beyond. The golf resort would be a competitor to many of the hotels, leisure facilities and golf courses in the area, some of which are already struggling. A recent Council Visitor Study revealed that over 90% of visitors come to the Wirral for the Coast, Countryside, Parks and gardens. Just 0.2% visit for golf! ALTERNATIVES Wirral has an outstanding natural heritage, with fantastic country parks and coastline. We should be enhancing what is unique to Wirral and already brings many tourists to the area. The RSPB has membership of over 1 million and is growing. Golf club membership is 700,000 and declining. An alternative use of the site could be an eco-resort with Martin Mere Style wetlands centre. Martin Mere supports many jobs, boosts the local economy and has 200,000 visitors per year http://www.wwt.org.uk/news/all-news/2015/04/wwt-martin-mere-news/martin-mere-worth-millions-to-local-economy/ Investment in jobs and tourism in sustainable projects such as an eco-resort or the Wirral Docklands would provide significantly better outcomes in terms of employment, housing, regeneration and tourism – without destroying OUR PRECIOUS GREEN BELT. This petition is intended to show the Council the extent of the local communities’ opposition to its outrageous waste of taxpayers’ money pursuing its “vanity” golf resort and green belt housing development. This is an ill-thought out project, it has unfounded benefits to the people of Wirral and huge negative impacts which would destroy the beautiful character of the area! ONCE THE GREEN BELT HAS GONE – IT HAS GONE FOREVER!

Save Our Parks!
Wrexham Council wants to slash the maintenance of all 11 Parks and Country Parks.The team of six Rangers who care for all our Parks, seven days a week, will be cut to four or even three. What will this mean?They will only be able to do the bare minimum, and even this will be concentrated on Ty Mawr and Alyn Waters. Other parks will end up getting scruffy and unloved; will they qualify for Green Flag awards in future? Everything else that the Rangers do now will slow down or stop:• Very few children’s events• No more Junior Rangers, work with schools or volunteer programme• How can they provide 7-day care for the animals at Ty Mawr? No doubt they’llhave to go as well.Other cuts:• Bellevue Park will lose its Ranger and all events• Nant Mill Visitor Centre will go from opening 7 days a week in Summer to openingon no weekdays at all, just a few weekends.• Permanent damage to well-used amenitiesDO YOU THINK THIS IS A GOOD IDEA?If not, please act now as we only have until November 30th to respond.

Petition to Councillor Nick Kemp
Put Nature on the Map in Newcastle
Nature is faring worse in the UK than in other countries. We must act locally - and nationally - to reverse this trend. All local authorities are legally obliged to conserve biodiversity - the number and variety of plants and animals in a particular area. · Newcastle City Council's local plan removed 9% of Newcastle’s green belt - the biggest proportion of any UK city. · The destruction of one the largest areas of mature woodland in the city was permitted by Newcastle City Council in 2015 to make way for unnecessary millionaire houses. · Designated wildlife sites were considered as ‘parks and allotments’ in a recent Newcastle City Council consultation on the future of parks, with no reference to their nature conservation value. · Planning applications that disregard nature conservation, including those that threaten protected species and pave over wildlife corridors have been approved by Newcastle City Council. · Tree cover in Newcastle is well below the UK average. · There are only a handful of wildflower areas in the city and glyphosate-based herbicides are still used widely by Newcastle City Council, despite increasing evidence of the detrimental effect on bee populations and other pollinating insects - and humans. · Havannah and Three Hills Local Nature Reserve is set to be hemmed in by residential development, threatening wildlife and protected species in and around the reserve and endangering a nationally significant red squirrel population. The Newcastle and North Tyneside Biodiversity Action Plan (BAP) aims to safeguard priority habitats and species, considered under threat locally and nationally. But there is no evidence that targets are being met, nor that objectives are being measured. We are therefore calling on Newcastle City Council to observe its duty to conserve biodiversity by maintaining and protecting existing wildlife corridors and designated wildlife sites from further destruction and degradation. We want to see the creation of new wildlife habitats through increased planting of trees, shrubs, hedgerows, green roofs and living walls, and the introduction of wildflower areas and weed killer free zones. Not only will this benefit wildlife, but will help to mitigate the effects of air pollution and climate change. By 2018 we would like to see comprehensive monitoring of all targets in the BAP to ensure targets are met, in particular to guide decisions on planning applications that affect biodiversity and, in so doing, enhance biodiversity value across all habitats in the city. 2,500 signatures on this petition will trigger a full debate at council. Please sign to send a clear message to Newcastle City Council that Newcastle needs better protection for nature.
