 Jill - 22 minutes ago - allafrica.com 

Botswana wants to ban hunting in view of combating game poaching, but the problem is that it is going to have a reversed effect. Kenya went exactly the same way. They also banned hunting and are currently sitting with a huge game poaching problem,

Dear friends, 

"Every Time You Spread Nutella on Your Toast, You Are Slapping the Face of a Dying Orangutan!" 



Please, have compassion, Say No to Nutella or any products that contain Palm Oil. 

The Impacts of the Deforestation for Palm Oil on Orangutans:


~ Orangutans are the only Asian great ape; they are the largest arboreal (tree dwelling) mammal on earth. The wild population of Bornean orangutans was estimated at 45,000-69,000. There are only approximately 7,300 Sumatran orangutans remaining; they are amongst the top 25 most endangered primates in the world.

~ Orangutans give birth once every 6 -10 years, the longest interbirth interval of any mammal! (A slow reproductive cycle makes orangutans extremely vulnerable to extinction).

~ After logging rainforest habitat, palm oil companies often use uncontrolled burning to clear the land. In 1997-98 a devastating fire killed almost 8,000 Borneon Orangutans. Orangutans are predicted to be extinct in the wild within the next 20 years or sooner if the rate of deforestation remains unchanged.

Indonesia is now in the Guinness Book of World Records for the highest rate deforestation. Of the 44 countries which collectively account for 90% of the worlds forests, the country which pursues the highest annual rate of deforestation is Indonesia with 1.8 million hectares of forest destroyed each year.

We have to Say No to Palm Oil Now to Protect the Orangutans and All the Wonderful Variety of Wildlife in Borneo, Sumatra and Papua New Guinea.

~ Borneo is home to 13 primate species, 350 bird species, 150 reptiles and amphibians and 15,000 plant species.

~Sumatra is home to Sumatran Rhinos, Clouded Leopards, Sumatran Tigers, Asian Tapirs, Sumatran Elephants, and thousands of other species.

~ Papua New Guinea harbors the third largest unbroken chain of rainforest in the world. It is home to some 7.5% of Earth's biodiversity, including 197 species of frog, 762 species of bird, and 3000 species of fish.

~ Papua New Guinea's forests are also home to tiny tree Kangaroos and over one thousand varieties of wild orchids. Many of these are endemic such as the Queen Alexandra Birdwing, the largest Butterfly in the world.

Much of Papua New Guinea remains to be surveyed and studied but time is running out as between 5 to 6 million hectares of forests have already been cleared and a further 10.5 million hectares are earmarked as logging concessions. The annual deforestation rate is estimated to be 300,000 hectares but this will increase if oil palm expansion unfolds as planned..."

I never normally send out messages regarding news or petitions, but I am making an exception in this case, as I think that few people are aware of the situation regarding Care2 petitions (via the Petition Site).



You may not know that any petition at the Petition Site (owned by Care2) can be amended / changed / rewritten at any time by the author or by Care2 staff, no matter how many signatures it has. 
(I thank Just C. for bringing this to my attention.)

And that there is no requirement that the changes are sent out to signatories, nor that a caveat is added to the petition, stating that it has been edited, and how.

That makes a mockery of all petitions - and I am not even sure that it's legal.

You might sign a petition one day to save baby seals, and find that it has turned into a petition supporting the hunting of baby seals, and still has your signature on it.  That is shocking, and I hope that Care2 will change this policy quickly.

 

Thanks to Vivien for her news story and petition on this subject. Here is a link to note the story so that we can get it to the Front Page, and a link to sign the petition.

THE ETHICS OF ALTERING A PETITION WITHOUT ACKNOWLEDGING IT. Please Action


Society & Culture  (tags: ethics, abuse, rightseducation, dishonesty )
Vivien - 22 hours ago - thepetitionsite.com

Do you know that you can sign a petition on Care2 and it can be altered without acknowledging this fact? This is totally unethical and it is questionable with regards to its legality once signatures have been added.

Sweet and dear Friend

Please sign this is an international petition and it have already been acquired 687,000 signers.
in the upper left corner you will find the right language to you

You can help us change the life of millions of dogs.

International support against dog torture and dog meat consumption is the only way to put pressure on the South Korean government to protect animal rights for real and ban the dog meat industry in all forms. This petition will be presented to the Korean officials in Seoul by the Korea Animal Rights Advocates when at least or more than 1 million signatures have been collected.

 

If you will have time please share to your friend.
The South Koreans dogs pray that someone save their lives
