Thanks Dianne - caught it before posting: Hope you are doing well.
Is this the new way you guys mean???
US Magistrate Judge Robert McQuaid Jr. sentenced Joshua Keathley and Todd Davis to six months in prison for using two mustangs as target practice. The Judge rejected their defense attorney's plea for probation, and stated the mean needed sometime alone
Every year in the Faroe Islands, innocent and helpless dolphins and pilot whales are slaughtered brutally. Why you may ask? Simply for a pointless and stupid rite of passage to manhood.

The Florida black bear--listed as a threatened species within the state--has been protected from trophy hunting for more than ten years. Decades ago, the population was decimated, largely due to habitat loss.
Rep. Don Young (R-AK) has introduced two bills (H.R. 1054/H.R. 1055) that would allow American trophy hunters to bring their sport-hunted polar bear trophies back from Canada.

Thanks guys - hope to get to petitions tonight but here is something from an 18 year old friend of mine.....
Here's an idea
What if we did a care2 redeem credit for turkeys using the adopt a turkey project?
When you redeem let's say 20,000(just an idea) you"sponsor" a turkey. There's a lot of detail to be worked out though. It cost $30 to sponsor one turkey. So we'd have to figure out who pays for it. It's just an idea right now.
Forward this around. Also help me figure out the money situation.
I,d say its quite a idea surely something could be worked out. Thanks val
Patrcia - she's real inerested in how to get it done - I have no idea - do you.
Here's something elsefrom her:
There are only 300 northern right whales left, and 99% of blue whales have been wiped out. These majestic giants are endangered species, and their case is being played out across the world, time and again. In fact, one third of all life forms on the planet are on the brink of extinction.
The natural world is being crushed by human activity, waste and exploitation. But there is a plan to save it -- a global agreement to create, fund and enforce protected areas covering 20% of our lands and seas by 2020. And right now, 193 governments are meeting in Japan to address this crisis.
We have just 2 days left in this crucial meeting. Experts say that politicians are hesitant to adopt such an ambitious goal, but that a global public outcry could tip the balance, making leaders feel the eyes of the world upon them. Click to sign the urgent 20/20 petition, and forward this email widely -- the message will be delivered directly to the meeting in Japan:
Ironically, 2010 is the International Year of Biodiversity. By now, our governments were supposed to have "achieved a significant reduction of the current rate of biodiversity loss." They have failed, consistently caving to industry when given a choice between narrow profit and protecting species. Our animals, plants, oceans, forests, soils, and rivers are choking under immense burdens from over-exploitation and other pressures.
Humans are the primary cause of this destruction. But we can turn it around -- we've saved species from extinction before. The causes of biodiversity decline are vast, and stopping them is going to require a move away from empty piecemeal promises with no clarity on who will pay, to a bold plan with strict enforcement and serious funding. The 20/20 plan is precisely that: governments will be forced to execute strict programmes to ensure that 20% of our earth is protected by the 2020 deadline, and massively scale up funding.
It has to be now. All over the world the picture is beginning to look bleaker -- there are only 3,200 tigers left in the wild, our oceans are running out of fish, and we're losing unique food sources to large mono-plantations. Nature is resilient, but we have to give it a safe place to bounce back. That's why this meeting is key -- it's a watershed moment to accelerate action based on clear commitments that protect nature's capital.
If our governments feel overwhelming public pressure right now to be courageous, we can jolt them to commit to the 20/20 plan at this meeting. But it's going to take every one of us to get that message to echo around the convention in Japan. Sign this urgent petition below, then forward it widely:
Already this year Avaaz, members have played a critical role in protecting elephants, defending the whale-hunting ban, and securing the world's largest Marine Protected Area in the Chagos Islands. Our community has shown that we can set ambitious goals -- and win. This campaign is the next stage in the essential battle to create the world that most of us everywhere want -- where natural resources and species are valued, and our living planet is protected for future generations.

The Guardian: "Public awareness of the biodiversity crisis is virtually non-existent"

Seems the petition part of Care2 is taking a vacation so let's see what we find tonight.
The BP oil disaster has affected every Gulf state -- and beyond. Fisheries have been devastated, tourism to the area has plummeted, wildlife refuges and marshes have been fouled with oil, toxic tar has washed onto beaches, and thousands of dolphins, sea turtles, herons, pelicans, and countless other wildlife were coated in oil, facing slow and agonizing deaths.
And for anyone who is new, my petition...

Eight years ago, a pipeline ruptured in a remote section of northeastern British Columbia, spilling a thick, viscous mixture of more than 1,000 barrels of oil and saltwater into a boggy area near Doig River.
Ever since a federal judge reclassified gray wolves under the protection of the Endangered Species Act, Idaho and Montana have been protesting the loss of their wolf management (i.e. hunting) programs.

"I have never seen (anything) like that in my life," said Nikita Cowels.
She and her little sister heard barking Saturday afternoon at The Village apartment complex in Wixom. The barking was coming from a dumpster.
"When they pulled the dog out, it was like a big, deep cut and a tumor on the side of the dog's face. It was like blood all in the dog's eyes. It was just horrible," Cowels said.

I think i signed all of them now...puh..
I live in Switzerland and we have many television channels from Germany. you won't believe how poor Knut is being exploited. He's a star and I highly doubt he likes that. But i don't like german Zoos anyways they even have dolphins (switzerland doesn't, luckily). And other animals that can't life in Zoos(e.g. polar bears, tigers). I think no animal should spend its life in a zoo when it's not on the brink of extinction, but there are some animals that just CAN'T life in captivity!
So nice to hear about what is going on in different countries Alex.
You get another night off - there are plenty of petitions and news to sign and comment on here and Care2 is still on yesterday with the petitions and I just don't have the time to search high and low..... so get caught up and we'll try tomorrow.
