Here are some actions you can take... (its quite a lot so dont worry if you cant do them all!!!)
Since the 1950s, federal law has required that all livestock be rendered "insensible to pain" before slaughter. But this most basic requirement does not extend to more than 95 percent of the farm animals slaughtered for food in this country - 9 billion a year - simply because the law does not explicitly mention poultry.
The Department of Interior has proposed changes to the management policies that govern how our parks are protected and preserved. The proposed changes to the policies will weaken longstanding legal mandates requiring the Park Service to make resource protection its highest priority, weakening its mission.
More than 317,000 seals were slaughtered in the 2005 seal hunt. A staggering 98.5% of the seals killed were three months old or younger, some of them skinned while still conscious and able to feel pain. Sign our pledge and tell the Canadian government that you won’t buy any Canadian seafood until the hunt is over for good. (Don't worry, once you've signed we'll tell you how to spot Canadian seafood.)

Stop Breeders from Selling Unweaned Baby Birds In Massachusetts and other states. Please "Take Action" to urge members of the Joint Committee on Community Development and Small Businesses to support the "Unweaned Baby Bird Bill" (S.B. 2195), which would protect baby birds from being sold or shipped before they are weaned.
More than 85% of the world's fur products are imported from China, a country where there are no animal welfare regulations and animals suffer the worst kinds of abuses. Among the rabbits, coyotes, foxes and other animals, millions of cats and dogs are brutally murdered for their fur. Many of them still wear collars and ID tags, an indication that they were stolen from loving guardians to be turned into fur trim and trinkets. Dog and cat fur exported to the U.S. is often deliberately mislabeled as being from another species, so many consumers who purchase it are wearing the fur of a dog or cat without knowing it. - Watch IDA's new PSA exposing the abominations that take place behind the scenes of the Chinese cat and dog fur industry by clicking and scrolling to the bottom of the page. Be forewarned, however, that the PSA contains scenes that are extremely graphic and disturbing, and viewer discretion is advised.
After pocketing massive political contributions, Representatives Tom Delay, Richard Pombo and their pals in Congress have launched an unprecedented attack on all species in America, including us! Join our Earth Day Virtual March by sending the email below to tell your representatives that our national forests, parks, wildlife refuges and endangered species are not for sale; we're against drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge or off our fragile coastlines; and we don't want our health jeopardized by greater mercury and pesticide pollution.
Nissui Europe is a 100%-owned subsidiary of Nippon Suisan Kaisha Ltd (Nissui) which is Japan's second-largest marine products firm. But Nissui is also a company with strong links to the whaling industry. During the height of Antarctic commercial whaling in the 1960s, three companies, Nissui, Maruha (then called Taiyo Gyogyo) and Kyokuyo owned and operated the Japanese Antarctic fleets. But due to decreasing demand and decreasing whaling quotas, the whaling departments of these three companies merged to form one company. When the ban on commercial whaling was introduced, that company handed its catcher boats and factory ship to a new company called Kyodo Senpaku. Nissui still owns about one third of Kyodo Senpaku, and so is directly linked to the current whaling in the Southern Ocean.
The UK government is currently reviewing the future direction of the UK's energy policy, and Blair wants a whole new generation of nuclear power stations. A public consultation has begun, and now is your chance to have your voice heard.Nuclear power will cost the Earth, will not stop climate change, produces deadly waste that we have no idea how to deal with and is a target for terrorists. As for energy security, replacing our existing fleet of reactors can only account for 3.6% of our overall energy demand. Every pound wasted on nuclear power is one which could have delivered seven times more carbon savings if spent on energy efficiency. The real solution to climate change and energy security is a wholesale reform of the centralised UK energy system to encourage massive efficiency and renewable energy sources on a huge scale.
Stop the badger cull! Since the 1970s badgers have been scapegoated as the cause of bovine TB, even though studies found that 6 out of 7 badgers tested were not infected with bTB. The real villain is the dairy industry. When animals are crowded together in dirty conditions and exploited to their physical limits, disease is inevitable and easily spread. Rather than taking responsibility, farmers blame the badgers. To appease the farmers, DEFRA has announced a 12 week consultation on a badger cull. If killing goes ahead, thousands of badgers will be trapped and shot.
We, the undersigned, are shocked at proposals set out by DEFRA to kill grey squirrels, supposedly in order to protect dwindling numbers of red squirrels.
Some of Utah's Best Wild Places at RiskFrom the haunting rock art of Nine Mile Canyon to the eerie silence and beauty of Labyrinth and Desolation Canyons -- theVernal and Price Field Offices of the BLM manage some of America's most prized wild places in Utah. Despite the agency's own findings that these areas are "fragile, sensitive, rare, irreplaceable, exemplary and unique," they remain open to increasing off-road-vehicle abuses and oil and gas exploration and development.  Help us push the agency to protect these rare areas.
