10-3-2013: Wolves in the Rocky Mountains and the Great Lakes
region whose populations recently lost these protections are now being subjected
to cruel wildlife management activities, including
aerial hunting, bowhunting,
trapping (including with steel-jaw traps), and even poisoning. Wolves residing
in the Southwest and beyond would no doubt suffer similar fates, and since these
populations have not yet recovered, delisting these animals would mean failing
to properly administer and implement the Endangered Species Act. We're
told that the USFWS intends to submit its proposal in March 2013. Your
voice is needed!
10-3-2013: The National Marine Fisheries

outcry from hundreds of thousands of us.

The explosive noise of airguns used to explore for oil and gas can deafen, injure and even kill whales.
Yet Apache is preparing to launch an acoustic onslaught in the belugas’ only home in the world. Even worse: the Obama Administration has just given Apache the green light to proceed.

The rhino is being hunted into extinction and could disappear forever unless we act now. Shocking new statistics show 440 rhinos were brutally killed last year in South Africa alone -- a massive increase on five years ago when just 13 had their horns hacked off. European nations could lead the world to a new plan to save these amazing creatures but they need to
hear from us first!
The Canadian Government actually spends more of its taxpayers' money promoting and supporting the seal hunt than the seal hunt brings in.
But despite the bans, despite the lack of demand and loss in revenue -- the Canadian Government continues to try to keep the door open on the commercial seal hunt.
They are planning a World Trade Organization (WTO) challenge of the EU ban. They're even trying to open new doors, like in China where they are trying to sell the Chinese Government on seal meat.
The Canadian Government is ignoring what the world is telling them: that nobody wants Canada's dead seals.
Perhaps we need to tell them more directly.
And today - the International Day of Action for Seals - is the perfect day to do it.
Please tell Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper to end the cruel commercial seal hunt.

Please sign this petition, and let's all stop eating sushi until the Japanese stop whaling. It is now confirmed officially that they even use funds that are mentioned to help the people in Fukushima to support their idiotic whaling fleet. They still don't get it and tell the world that they are hunting and killing whales for scientific purposes, this makes me so so angry. We have to stop them now, let's all unite.
Enough is enough, don't give them a change to kill another whale.
I have had it with the Japanese, and for once and for all, this has to end, no matter what. And please support Sea Shepherd, they, again, risk their lives to stop this crazy whaling fleet.

November 2011: The
land of the Spirit Bear. This spectacular rainforest, which spans the
coast of Canada’s British Columbia, is one of our continent’s last and
greatest wild places -- home to wolves, bears and abundant marine mammal
populations. Its world-class salmon runs have sustained the native people of
more than 70 First Nations for thousands of years. A pipeline carrying the
world’s dirtiest oil through the home of the Spirit Bear could devastate the
rainforest with a single spill.

Kevin Bacon -- and then take action today to save some of the world’s very
last Spirit Bears by sending a mail to Enbridge inc.. And/or

The Senate Standing Committee on Fisheries and Oceans has recently begun a
study that could result in the killing of 70,000 grey seals off Canada’s East
Coast. The Fisheries Minister is pushing federal scientists to justify the slaughter
of seals through contrived studies and one-sided hearings for political
reasons. He has decided to ignore factors such as the impact of uncontrolled
foreign overfishing in the waters off our coast and the total lack of
scientific proof that seals are affecting the cod’s recovery. The committee is considering an irresponsible cull that could, in my view,
have serious negative impact on the Atlantic ecosystem and the long term
health of many species, including cod. This slaughter would also result in
untold costs to taxpayers and to Canada’s international reputation. I have called on the committee to do due diligence and gather scientific
evidence from all sides of this issue, not simply the studies that fit in with
the unjustifiable goal of killing 70,000 seals. I urge you to write to the
committee and its members who can be contacted through the Committee website
http://senate-senat.ca/pofo-e.asp. The government needs to know how Canadians and people around the world feel
about this indefensible slaughter. Sincerely, Hon. Senator Mac Harb
