About one hundred years ago, this penguin colony, known as a rookery, was subject to a terrible slaughter--Environmentalists launched a successful international campaign to protect the remaining 4,000 penguins-- they now number 500,000 birds
An African lion has been filmed 'embracing' the woman who nursed him back to health in an animal shelter in Colombia. Ana Julia Torres runs the Villa Lorena shelter for abandoned and maltreated animals.

Touching a wild golden poison frog could kill you within minutes:they are highly endangered. While the new reserve is small, the WLT says a healthy population of the endangered species survives in the new protected area

Val, I know I signed all these petitions on this thread, but for some reason it didn't post but will do it again. Must be the solar flares from the sun effecting internet connections lately. Were suppose to have the worst ever recorded with solar flares which will effect every thing electrical.
Good one Val!

All signed. Thank you Val.
I forward my petitions Val- Actually I notify them by email when I start it, and then again when Care2 closes them.
Im getting fustrated writting them too... it it VERY VERY rare to get 5000 signatures- seems not that many people actually care about wildlife
I mean, you would think with 18 MILLION member we could scrounge up 5000 signatures????
The targets dont take them seriously because the see how many people are here, and how many are actually interested.
But? On a brighter note- news from Debbie Johnson yesterday-
Big Wins for Wildlife! Your Voice Beats Out Big Oil
Today, the U.S. Senate voted on a number of bills that will have tremendous impacts for America's wildlife. Thanks to advocates like you who have been keeping the pressure on Congress to fight for their constituents' interests instead of Big Oil’s, we are happy to be able to report some big wins for wildlife today:
* Keystone XL Pipeline: REJECTED!
This amendment would have overturned President Obama's decision to reject the Keystone XL tar sands oil pipeline--bypassing the environmental review process and giving Congress unprecedented authority to hand out a permit for this dangerous project. The pipeline would put endangered whooping cranes and critical resources at risk of toxic oil spills and drive a rapid expansion of habitat-destroying tar sands operations that could put the lives of thousands of wolves and other wildlife at risk.
* RESTORE Act: PASSED!
The RESTORE Act ensures that Clean Water Act penalties collected from those responsible for the BP oil disaster be dedicated to Gulf Coast restoration--a big win for brown pelicans and other wildlife impacted by the spill. This historic amendment also includes significant authorization and funding for the Land and Water Conservation Fund and the National Endowment for the Oceans, both essential programs to protect key wildlife habitat and natural resources.
* Arctic Drilling: REJECTED!
This amendment would have opened new leases for oil and gas drilling in pristine Arctic wilderness--putting ringed seals at needless risk of potential oil disasters, while boosting Big Oil's billions of dollars in profits. It would have also drastically expanded offshore drilling into vast new areas of our coastline, including the Atlantic Ocean, the California Coast, eastern Gulf of Mexico and Bristol Bay in Alaska.
Thanks to all of you that sent messages, made calls, and spread the word to your friends over the last month--your voices for wildlife were heard loud and clear!
