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.

Take action to protect whales

In March last year the International Court of Justice (ICJ) ruled that Japan's programme of so-called 'scientific whaling' in the Antarctic was not for purposes of scientific research and should end. This landmark judgment meant that whales in the Southern Ocean were given protection from slaughter for the first time in more than a century. The ruling was strongly backed by the International Whaling Commission (IWC) when it met in Slovenia in September 2014. However, Japan plans to embark on a new programme of 'scientific whaling' in the Antarctic later this year.

Urge the UK Government to ask Japan to comply with the ICJ ruling and permanently end 'scientific whaling' (commercial whaling by another name) in the Antarctic.

Japan's planned new 'scientific whaling' programme is once again sham science. There is nothing new or different in the proposal. Whaling for commercial purposes damages Japan's international reputation and should be abandoned. At a minimum Japan should postpone its new plans until they can be reviewed by the next full meeting of the IWC in September 2016.

A note to The Rt Hon Hugo Swire MP, Minister of State at the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, asking him to raise the issue with his Japanese counterpart, will help protect whales.

baby elephant

According to news reports, 34 baby elephants, some as young as two years old, have been taken from their families for export into a life of captivity.

News reports are sketchy, it may be that this capture and export is entirely legal, but the government can still stop it.

Elephants have deep family bonds — this loss will be devastating to the elephants left behind and the captured young have a poor chance of survival.

Urge Zimbabwe's Ministers for Environment and Tourism to stop the export and return these elephants to the wild.

The Zimbabwe government has the power to choose a more humane fate for these helpless elephants.

People around the world continue to say "no" to seal products, but the Canadian government stubbornly continues to finance and support the commercial seal hunt. The WTO recently ruled that animal welfare concerns about commercial sealing can justify trade bans on seal products.

Tell Canada that the seal hunt must end and that you will continue to defend your right to say "no" to cruelty.

A quick note to Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper will help protect seals. We have prepared a template email for you to send. If you prefer, you can personalise this copy to make it more effective. Please ensure that you are polite at all times.
