IFAW viert klinkend succes – Rusland verbiedt handel in pelzen van zadelrobben

Mon, 12/19/2011

Met zeer veel genoegen kan ik u meedelen, dat de deur naar een van de omvangrijkste markten voor zeehondenproducten in het slot is gegooid – de douane-unie Rusland, Kazachstan en Wit-Rusland heeft een verbod ingesteld op de import en export van pelzen van zadelrobben.

Northern dogs know a thing or two about giving

Dogs know a thing or two about giving. Each and every dog that I’ve had the pleasure of knowing has left an indelible mark on my soul, and the dogs from Canada’s remote communities give me more joy than words can describe.

Killing with no accountability and no common sense

Tue, 12/20/2011

Cyanide and death traps in our backyards: Sounds like a plot line for a fictional horror movie, right? Wrong. Sodium cyanide, Compound 1080 and body gripping “kill” traps are used in backyards around the country, within mere feet of residential homes. These traps and poisons are utilized by the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Wildlife Damage Management, formerly known as Wildlife Services, and are intended for permanent removal of “harmful” invasive species, as well as predators perceived to be problematic by special interest groups.

Another bad bill for animals in Congress: This time on our public lands

Wed, 12/21/2011
H.R. 2834 is simply an all-around unnecessary and bad bill.

Should the rights of a few well-connected individuals automatically trump sound science?  Should two narrow special interest groups—hunters and fishers—be able to demand that our public lands—paid for with everyone’s tax dollars—be used for their use above all others like wildlife photographers, animal lovers, hikers, and people who just like being outdoors?  A few hunting extremists and their Congressional representatives believe the answer to these questions is yes, and they are trying to turn their desires into reality.
