I’ve got news to report regarding our efforts to stop researchers from acquiring dogs and cats from shelters. We have learned that soon, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) will no longer allow researchers who receive federal funds to purchase cats or dogs from class B “random source” dealers. These class B dealers sell animals who are bought from shelters or adopted from “Free to a Good Home” scenarios. They have even been known to steal animals from private backyards.

This is a huge step forward, but we still need your help. The ban on using cats from class B dealers does not go into effect until October, and the use of dogs will not be phased out until 2015. Additionally, while we are thrilled that the federal government will be phasing out the use of most shelter dogs and cats, class B dealers will still be able to sell them to privately funded research institutions.

Please contact Congress and urge your U.S. Representative to co-sponsor The Pet Safety and Protection Act, H.R. 2256, a bill that will permanently ban the sale of animals from class B dealers to all U.S. research facilities.

Dogs and cats in animal shelters should be adopted by new companions—not purchased by class B dealers and used in painful experiments. NIH’s new policy will help end the practice of pound seizure, but it will not happen soon enough. That’s why it is so important for you to contact Congress today. When you are done, please forward this message to your friends and family—and share on Facebook and Twitter.

Action Request: Petition
Location: United States

Last week, public outcry forced Amazon.com to pull over one hundred whale and dolphin meat products from its Japanese site. Consumers were outraged that the world's largest online retailer supported the killing of whales and dolphins -- and Amazon.com listened.

But now, Amazon.com is refusing to put a permanent ban in place to protect these animals in the future.

Melissa Sehgal, an Amazon.com customer, is in Taiji, Japan -- the site of an annual dolphin hunt that was exposed in the documentary The Cove. Every day she is witnessing how dolphins are captured and killed, and she wants Amazon.com to help stop it. That's why Melissa started a petition calling on Amazon to never again sell meat from dolphins and whales.

Click here to sign Melissa's petition asking Amazon.com to permanently ban whale, dolphin, and porpoise meat from its sites.

Tens of thousands of dolphins, whales and porpoises are captured and killed for their meat every year in Japan. The method by which they are killed is gruesome. "Rods are hammered into (dolphins) spinal cords to paralyze them," Melissa says. "And then they are dragged by their tails to the butcher house."

But Amazon.com has responded positively and quickly to consumer feedback before. Melissa also knows that further action from the online retailer could impact the trade in dolphin and whale meat since hunts are happening right now. Without an official policy, Amazon.com could start selling whale and dolphin meat again at any time.

Sign Melissa's petition to ask Amazon.com to put a permanent ban in place against selling dolphin, whale, and porpoise meat on its sites.

Thanks for being a change-maker,

- Pulin and the Change.org team

The sex abuse scandal at Penn State is a horrifying example of what can happen when people in positions of power feel they can act without consequence. Pennsylvania is considering strengthening its anti-child abuse bills, but what about kids in the rest of the United States?

Ask your governor to stand up for kids all over America.»

Adults should have a moral obligation to protect the children in their life. But as we saw at Penn State, this isn't always the case.

Each state needs to implement laws strengthening child sexual abuse reporting requirements. We can't let these atrocities happen again.

It's time for the law to pick up where compassion has failed. Save countless numbers of children from suffering at the hands of abusers. »

Thanks for taking action!

Ahmad picked up a bright metal object in a park where he was celebrating his 5th birthday in Lebanon. It was an unexploded cluster bomblet, which blew up in his face, killing him slowly in front of his family.

Three years ago, public pressure pushed through a ban of these cruel bombs. But now the US is lobbying nations to quietly sign a new law that allows their use -- signing the death warrant for thousands of other children. Most countries are still on the fence on how to vote. Only if we raise the alarm across the world can we shame our governments to block this deadly decision.

Positions are being drawn up now. We only have days until countries meet to send our leaders a clear message: stand up for the cluster bombs ban and keep our children safe. Click below to sign the petition -- it will be delivered directly to delegates at the Geneva conference:

http://www.avaaz.org/en/cluster_bombs_ii_b/?vl

Thousands of people -- many of them children -- have been maimed or killed by these bombs. When they are fired, they spray small "bomblets" over a wide area, many of which fail to explode. Years later, people disturb them in their fields or school playgrounds not knowing what they are, and they explode.

In 2008, over half of the world’s governments outlawed these weapons by signing the Convention on Cluster Munitions. But now, shockingly, countries like France, Germany, Italy, Sweden and the UK, who all signed the Convention, are under pressure from the US, China and Russia to run rings round the ban by signing a separate agreement that would allow them to use cluster munitions. Only Norway, Mexico, Austria and a few others are fighting this horror.

Negotiators at the Convention on Conventional Weapons meet in Geneva next week. Most governments don’t really want this protocol and have not said which way they will vote, but they are under severe pressure from the US to comply and will only object if the global public persuades them.

There’s no time to lose -- the conference starts on Monday. Let's call on our governments to reject this deadly and cynical US campaign to legalize cluster killing. Click below to sign the petition and forward this email widely -- we've done it before, let's do it again:

http://www.avaaz.org/en/cluster_bombs_ii_b/?vl

Cluster bombs and land mines were banned because citizens raised the alarm across the world -- with victims and survivors leading the way. For their sakes and to ensure no more lives are lost, let’s not allow these cruel weapons back and join together now to demand a more peaceful world.

Uranium Mining Stopped on 1 Million Acres

In response to a lawsuit by the Center for Biological Diversity and allies, the Department of the Interior this Monday banned new uranium mining on a million acres near the Grand Canyon for two years. A spike in uranium prices has set off a mining rush of more than 8,000 claims in the area, threatening to poison wildlife and the water supply of millions of people who depend on the Colorado River. The Center, Grand Canyon Trust, and the Sierra Club filed suit, winning a court injunction and spurring Congressman Raúl Grijalva, D-Ariz, to invoke an emergency mining-closure measure in the House of Representatives. Obama's Interior Department, however, violated the closure, provoking a second suit by the Center and a constitutional showdown over who has the right to control mining on public lands, Congress or the Presidency. Monday's million-acre closure resolves most of the differences and buys the Grand Canyon and the Colorado River breathing time while Congress considers a permanent ban.

Many thanks to the more than 11,000 supporters who sent letters to Interior Secretary Ken Salazar in the last two weeks -- your action helped secure this crucial mining ban. Read more in The New York Times; send a personal thank-you to Salazar, Grijalva, and Congressman Nick Rahall, D-W.V., for their work protecting the area; and learn about and watch a live broadcast of this weekend's grand gathering to rally aid for the Canyon.


Herbicide Spraying Stopped on 1.5 Million Acres

In response to a legal challenge by the Center for Biological Diversity and WildEarth Guardians, last Friday the Bureau of Land Management withdrew its decision to spray herbicides on 1.5 million acres in southern New Mexico. The plan would have been the most sweeping herbicide proposal yet seen in the state, covering the entire area managed by the Bureau's Roswell field office, including water sources for the Bitter Lake National Wildlife Refuge and habitat for 12 endangered species. If herbicides were allowed in the area, species from the Pecos bluntnose shiner to the Pecos sunflower could be killed through habitat contamination or direct ingestion.

The fight goes on, however, as the BLM has separately proposed to spray herbicides on more than 700,000 acres of other public lands in the Roswell area.

Read more in the Roswell Daily Record.


Clearcutting Halted on 2.6 Million Acres

In response to a suit by the Center for Biological Diversity and allies, the Obama administration last Thursday withdrew a Bush-era plan to quadruple clearcut logging on 2.6 million acres of federal land in Oregon. Bush's Western Oregon Plan Revision would have trashed salmon spawning streams, old-growth forests, habitat for endangered birds like the northern spotted owl and marbled murrelet, prompting the Center, Earthjustice, and a dozen other groups to take to the courts. Kudos to the Interior Department for seeing the light and walking away from Bush's catastrophe.

Center Polar Bear Ad Reaches 90 Million Viewers, Among Most Popular in Nation

Last year thousands of Center for Biological Diversity supporters contributed more than $70,000 to help us get two public service announcements on the airwaves to motivate people to save polar bears and stop global warming. We promised to reach 10 million viewers. Well . . . in a little over six months, our ads reached more than 90 million viewers (or 180 million eyeballs) and are still going strong. During that time, they were the 13th most popular public service announcement in the country. They helped motivate more than 94,000 people to petition for polar bear protection.

Running in English and Spanish, the animated and haunting live-action pieces have been shown 18,000 times from Los Angeles, New York, Baltimore, and Chicago to Fairbanks, Birmingham, Bozeman, and Toledo. It would have cost $2.4 million to buy this much television time, but thanks to our supporters, we were able to get this public service airspace for just $70,000 in production and distribution costs.

Watch them for yourself now. And pass this email link on to your friends.

Reward Posted for Meadow-trashing, Toad-mashing ORVers

Seeking justice for the Yosemite toad and a beautiful Wild West ecosystem, last week the Center for Biological Diversity and allies posted a $1,500 reward for a dirt-biker posse that damaged a central Sierra Nevada meadow. The band of vandals was spotted last month making a hasty retreat with their motorcycles from California's Groundhog Meadow, where researchers had arrived for a study on the imperiled Yosemite toad. The bikers left the meadow scarred with deep wheel ruts from spins and zigzags, which drained the site's shallow layer of water and left toad tadpoles and eggs fatally high and dry.

Besides joyriding vandals, the Yosemite toad is endangered by introduced fish, pesticides, grazing, drought, and other threats. This incident underscores its need for prompt protection, which the Center has been working for since 2000.

Florida Shells Out Historic Turtle Protections

It's official: Thanks to a Center for Biological Diversity petition, as of this Monday, Florida's freshwater turtles are off limits to commercial harvesters. The state's historic harvesting ban, one of the country's strongest conservation measures for freshwater turtles to date, puts the brakes on an industry responsible for up to 150,000 soft-shell turtle exports from the state in the past five years. Turtle collection not only hurts the reptiles themselves -- because they're long lived and have low reproduction rates, harvest-caused population reductions are a serious setback -- it also harms humans, since many captured turtles that are contaminated with mercury, PCBs, and other toxins end up on dinner plates in Asia.

The Center has now petitioned a dozen southern and midwestern states to protect terrapins from commercial overharvesting -- and with the help of nearly 4,000 letters sent by our online activists (hey, thanks!), we're making progress. Now, with the Florida victory under our belts, it's the perfect time to push other states for crucial turtle-harvesting bans.

The Worst of Both Worlds: Pesticide 5,000 Times Worse for Warming Than CO2

What could be more horrible than a pesticide that hurts species and contaminates water and air? One that also acts as a greenhouse gas 4,780 times more potent than carbon dioxide. Last week, the Center for Biological Diversity and other groups asked the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to block the release of this monster chemical, called sulfuryl fluoride, onto farms and fields in four states. Pesticide company Dow AgroSciences has requested a permit for spraying 32,435 pounds of the stuff on 65 acres of test plots in Florida, Georgia, Texas, and California -- and this permit must be denied. Releasing just 10 percent of the proposed poundage into the air would be equal to spewing out 15.5 million pounds of CO2, causing the same amount of global warming as a 30-miles-per-gallon car driven around the world more than 930 times.

Canada's Governor General Snacks on Seal Heart

In a display deemed "too bizarre to acknowledge," Canada's Governor General Michaelle Jean ate a slaughtered seal's heart raw to show support for seal hunting in the great white North. Jean, the representative of Britain's Queen Elizabeth II as Canada's head of state, knelt above a pair of seal carcasses at an Inuit festival and asked a native woman, "Could I try the heart?" She then swallowed a slice and declared it tasty: "It's like sushi. . . And it's very rich in protein."

Jean's seal meal was a probable reaction to the European Union's June ban on seal hunting and large-scale pelt trading in Canada, Greenland, and elsewhere (with exceptions made for traditional Inuit hunts). Canadian restaurants with seal on the menu received an unexpected and controversial boost last month.

Learn more about Jean's pinniped snack from BBC News and read about Canada's seal-serving restaurants in The New York Times.

ABC News and New York affiliate WABC equipped students with hidden video cameras before they visited 10 Army recruitment offices in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut.
"Nobody is going over to Iraq anymore?" one student asks a recruiter.
"No, we're bringing people back," he replies.

A U.N. spokesperson announced just last week that "all of our nightmares have become realities" in Darfur. One of the most important things you can do right now to help end the nightmare is meet face-to-face with your elected officials to deliver an important message: this crisis will not end without U.N. boots on the ground. This week is your last chance to lead a delegation lobby visit to your senator or representative's district offices, so please apply today.

The African Union peacekeeping force in Darfur has failed to protect civilians. Civilians, most political parties, the armed opposition and the African Union itself are all calling for the AU force to be replaced by U.N. peacekeepers. Continued Bush administration action is essential to making this happen, but the administration won’t move without pressure from Congress.

At the crossroads of conflict and human rights, UNHCR is on the scene.  Here is your Insider Update:

1) Violence surges in Darfur
2) Match your gift for Congolese refugee children: Only one week left!

Dear Friend of Refugees,

1.  Violence surges in Darfur

The situation in Darfur remains grave, with recent reports of a rampage by government troops and government allied militiamen in the village of Deker, a village in the west of the large province. Adouma Ahmet Khames, 35, told the press “They destroyed everything.” Among the dead were two of his nephews and a 75-year-old cousin. Reports indicate 39 rapes, 109 injuries, and countless killed.

The attack on Dekar in West Darfur was among scores of such incidents reported in July. The agreement signed by the Government of Sudan and one of Darfur’s rebel groups – an agreement that was intended to bring peace – has now brought 30,000 government troops and police officers to Darfur.

Reports The Washington Post, “These new forces, armed with expanded weapons stocks and backed by government planes making bombing runs, are augmenting the Janjaweed militias that already were raping, looting and killing their way through Darfur, a vast, arid region the size of Texas.”

Since 2003, violence, war, and disease have killed in excess of 200,000 people.  Another 2 million – mostly women and children - have been forced to flee their homes.

UNHCR continues to battle the elements, face massive logistics obstacles and ever-expanding security challenges to help hundreds of thousands of people uprooted by the conflict.  You can help.  To support UNHCR’s humanitarian work with Darfur’s refugees click here.  As always, 100% of your donation to Darfur goes to UNHCR’s life-saving work.


2. Match your gift for Congolese refugee children: Only one week left!

The deadline to match your gift – to support UNHCR’s education work with Congolese refugee youth and children – is only days away (September 15).

Tyco International will continue to match your gift up to $25,000.   And we are only $5,000 away from reaching our goal. 

Right now there are 1,200 Congolese refugee youth and children – ages 5 to 17 - living in the Gihembe Camp in Rwanda with special needs.  With your support, UNHCR can help this vulnerable group realize their dreams through education and skills training.  
Your gift will be matched today!

Thanks for making a difference.

Warmly,
Caryl García.
Executive Director.

Darfur activists won a huge victory on August 31 when the U.N. Security Council approved a peacekeeping force for Darfur. But that force cannot be sent until the Sudanese Government approves it - which will require diplomatic pressure from the Bush Administration.

I hope you'll take a moment to sign this important petition.

Bob Fertik.

The situation in Darfur is spiraling out of control. Over the past three months tens of thousands of civilians have been displaced and violence against aid workers is at its highest level ever. As a result of the mounting insecurity, almost half a million innocent people are without aid.

It is our responsibility to stand up for those who are left vulnerable and without a voice. Please take action today.

Following unrelenting pressure by AJWS and Darfur activists around the world, the United Nations Security Council passed a Darfur resolution on August 31. This resolution calls for the deployment of a UN peacekeeping force to help curb the violence and implement the peace agreement signed earlier this year. But there are significant roadblocks to the deployment of such a force, including the Sudanese President who recently described any UN intervention as "illegal".
With this adversity, and the slow pace of action, it is critical that you send a letter to President Bush asking him to use diplomacy to overcome objections from the Sudanese government to implementing this UN resolution. The UN must send peacekeepers to Darfur before the volatile situation erupts into all out war, leading to the forced withdrawal of humanitarian relief groups and the death and displacement of hundreds of thousands more Darfurians.

Since the conflict in Darfur began in 2003, it has claimed more than 450,000 civilian lives. Today, as you read this e-mail, the genocide continues while the world watches from a distance.

A small and poorly-equipped force of African Union troops has been unable to stop the violence. It is imperative that a UN peacekeeping force intervene as soon as possible to protect millions of Darfurians who are living in the line of fire. The situation is desperate, and it is time to act.

Thank you for standing up for the people of Darfur.

Sincerely,

American Jewish World Service.

Again from Amnesty International.

Though thousands of miles away, the people of Darfur are more than faceless victims of abuse; they are human beings with human rights. And as students, we have the opportunity to make a big impact on their lives.

One of the most important things we can all do this month for the people of Darfur is to meet face-to-face with our elected officials to deliver an important message: this crisis will not end without U.N. boots on the ground. With school now getting into full swing, this is the perfect chance to kick-start your activism for this school year. This week is your last chance to apply to lead a delegation lobby visit to your senator or representative's district offices,
so please apply today.

Presenting the case for Darfur to your elected officials face-to-face is one of the most powerful ways to affect political change. We need your help to convince Congress that the people of Darfur matter.

With your help, we can end the nightmare in Darfur. Lead a delegation visit to your elected officials' district offices this month or join a delegation in your community.

Darfur: Indiscriminate Bombing Warrants U.N. Sanctions.

Sources on the ground indicate that the government of Sudan is indiscriminately bombing civilian-occupied villages in rebel-held North Darfur, Human Rights Watch said today. The bombing campaign comes as Khartoum is threatening to eject African Union peacekeepers and stymieing efforts to deploy a U.N. force to the region, and should trigger sanctions against senior Sudanese government officials.

Do you care about global warming?
Great news! You and over 50,000 people have signed LCV's Global Warming Leadership Petition, demanding a more secure energy future. Thank you!


Do you know anyone who cares, like you do, about global warming and our dangerous dependence on oil? Today give them a small chuckle – and an opportunity to join you in making a big difference.


Now we need you to tell everyone you know, or at least just a few of your friends. You are our best hope for building this important campaign and making it a huge success. Below is a cartoon with a note, inviting your friends to sign the petition. Will you please forward this message to your friends and family?

This cartoon might make you chuckle, but it deals with a topic that's dead serious – global warming, and America's lack of action in solving this crisis. But you can help make a difference.

The League of Conservation Voters has launched The Heat Is On: Demand Global Warming Leadership Now! – a campaign to push politicians in America to get serious about solving global warming. I and over 50,000 other Americans have signed the petition. Please join us and sign today:
http://action.lcv.org/campaign/gw_petition_0712?source=adv_gwecrd_0806

Many scientists believe this summer was one of the hottest on record. And few continue to ignore evidence of global warming's devastating consequences: climbing temperatures; more violent hurricanes like Katrina and Rita; chronic wildfires and drought; and disappearing icecaps and glaciers. All the while, energy prices continue to rise, hurting us in our pocketbook. Global warming is happening now, and it's time to act.

Click here to sign LCV's online petition now, and send a message to America's political leaders that it's time to act to halt global warming.

Thanks!
