Demand Justice for 5 Endangered Penguins Killed at Peru Rescue Center

Five rare Humboldt penguins were found dead at a centre for endangered species. The two adults and three babies -- the youngest of which was only eight months old -- were found with their throats slashed, left floating in bloody pools of water.



This supposed "rescue" and breeding centre in northern Peru is not protecting this highly endangered species from extinction, and keeps the penguins in horrible conditions. Sign this petition to demand that the government shut down the centre and do more to protect the imperiled Humboldt penguin.



In Peru, the endangered Humboldt penguin has been terribly affected by the use of dynamite in industrial fishing, by being killed for human consumption, by pollution and by being picked up from the beach to be pets (which ultimately leads to their deaths). These activities are illegal, but the government is not holding any penguin-killers accountable.

Peru needs to protect these penguins before it's too late!



Instead, officials pick up the penguins and send them to this terrible facility in the north of Peru. This so-called rescue centre doesn't meet any of the criteria a penguin facility should have: It is in the desert and there is no shade, no cave and no proper pool.



The worst problem with the center is that it is not set up for preparing the penguins to be released. The center claims that 'the penguins are too domesticated,' but Humboldt penguins have been successfully released before -- even individuals that were very young when they were rescued, and even animals that were severely traumatized and were in terrible physical condition.

In addition to the miserable life the penguins have in the center, they are also at high risk of dying prematurely from a disease outbreak, overheating, or hurting themselves badly out of stress.



Keeping the penguins in Peru's center is inhumane! Demand the Peruvian government protect these penguins before it's too late!

Daily Voice : Protect Women Around the World

Protect Women Around the World

Critically ill with lupus and kidney problems, Beatriz was also pregnant with a non-viable fetus. She was unlikely to survive carrying the pregnancy to term.



But Beatriz lives in El Salvador, which bans all abortions -- regardless of the circumstances. She survived only because, after weeks of international pressure, her doctors were given special permission to induce labor and perform a C-section. El Salvador's policies are indefensible. Even worse, though, is the fact that women throughout the developing world face similar circumstances every day, and are put at the same risk because of a flawed interpretation of a long-standing United States law.



The Helms Amendment, adopted in 1973, bars the use of U.S. foreign assistance to provide "abortion as a method of family planning."  In practice, this law has been used to block abortions under any circumstance. The end result is that women in the most desperate of circumstances are denied safe abortions. Some 47,000 women die each year in developing countries from complications from unsafe abortions.



President Obama can change this with the stroke of a pen and make clear that U.S. funded health clinics around the world can provide safe abortions to women who've been raped, who are victims of incest, or whose lives would be threatened by carrying a pregnancy to term.



Tell President Obama to act now to protect women's lives.

Daily Voice : Iraq: Don't Legalise Forced Child Marriage!

Iraq: Don't Legalise Forced Child Marriage!

Any minute now, the Iraqi Council of Representatives will vote to legalise forced child marriage.



If this legislation passes, there will be no minimum age to legally marry. A girl's father would legally be able to accept a marriage proposal, and a girl would be prohibited from resisting her husband's advances and leaving the home without his permission. This law is a recipe for life in domestic and sexual slavery.



Currently, with the legal marriage age at 18 and the prohibition of forced marriage, Iraq has one of the most progressive policies on women's rights in the Middle East. This law would be a huge step back for Iraqi women's rights!



We may not have much time to stop Iraq from legalizing forced child marriage and a lifetime of domestic and sexual slavery for girls and women. Urge the Prime Minister of Iraq to strike down the Jaafari Personal Status Law today!

Tell the EPA: I Support Limits on Carbon Pollution from Power Plants

Rising seas, acidifying oceans, melting ice caps, worsening droughts, floods, heat waves, and intensifying migrations and extinctions: according to the most recent report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, climate change is hitting home, right now.



Polluters are doing everything they can to protect their right to pollute. But parentsâ??and grandparents, aunts, uncles, and sisters and brothersâ??have power too. Our voices count. The actions we take now to protect our air will be felt for generations to come.



In order to fight climate change we need to cut carbon and methane. Electricity plants running on coal produce more than a quarter of US carbon pollution. Right now, there are absolutely no limits on carbon pollution from those power plants.



Fortunately, the EPA has proposed new rules that would place limits on carbon pollution from power plants. This is more significant than Keystone. The coal industry is fighting these rules as hard as it can. It is up to us to defend them.



Tell the EPA you support limits on carbon pollution from power plants.

SEVEN (and counting) WILD BEARS KILLED BY FLORIDA FISH & WILDLIFE OFFICERS

I AM LIVID!! I just heard on our local news that in Lake Mary FL, a bear mauled a lady in her garage. Now, to rectify this situation the FL Fish & Wildlife Officers decided to shoot and kill six additional bears in that area. They have no idea which bear committed the offense, so let's just kill them all.

These bears unfortunately have been habitualized because the residents in that and outlying areas aren't bear-proofing their homes, such as using trash receptacles that are not so easy to access by hungry animals. We are steadily encroaching into all wild animals habitat. There has to be a better solution to this problem other than killing all the bears, or other animals, who are simply in the wrong place at the wrong time.

I am sincerely saddened for the tragic mauling of the lady and I wish her a speedy recovery. But, let's not overdo our response by killing all the innocent ones who are trying to survive!

Daily Voice : Demand that FWS Review the Status of Idaho's Wolves!
« Reply #309 on: May 10, 2014, 01:00:12 AM »
Demand that FWS Review the Status of Idaho's Wolves!

Less than five years after losing federal protection, it is clearer than ever that Idaho refuses to manage its wolf population responsibly. Instead of managing their wolves like other wildlife, the state has declared war on them.



Since 2011, Idaho has:

- Used aerial gunning to wipe out entire packs, including those on national forest lands, to artificially boost elk populations;

- Allowed hunting of wolves every day of the year;

- Doubled the number of wolves that could be trapped or snared from five to ten;

- Sent a professional trapper to eliminate two packs of wolves in a federal wilderness area;

- Proposed killing 60 percent of the remaining wolves in the Frank Church Wilderness; and

- Passed HB470 into law setting aside an annual amount of $400,000 for the sole purpose of killing as many wolves as possible.



The Governor of Idaho has made no secret of his intention to reduce the state's wolf population to 150 animals or less, which would require initially killing more than 450 wolves and their young as more are born.



That's why Defenders of Wildlife has officially requested that the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) immediately initiate a status review of wolves in the Northern Rockies and examine the relentless threats that this species has encountered. This is the first step toward restoring Endangered Species Act protection to wolves in Idaho and other Northern Rockies states.



Join us in calling on FWS to review the status of Idaho's persecuted wolves.

Ask Texas to Intervene More Quickly in Animal Abuse & Hoarding Cases; Ban Owners from Having Future

Please sign and share this petition everywhere possible to draw huge awareness to such horrific animal abuse, cruelty and hoarding cases like the one recently found in Texas. Fifty-seven dogs and twenty-six cats, including puppies and kittens were removed from a bad situation that they have been watching for more than a year!!


More than 80++ animals were living in their own excrements and feces, along with fleas and other parasites in a home near Dallas, Texas. The animals were all in deplorable conditions, many of them emaciated, suffering with hair loss and covered in fleas. The owners of the home were previously warned about the care of their animals a year ago but were allowed to keep them all. All warnings were ignored and the dogs were kept in filthy crates, laying in their own feces and urine.


Officials also found dead mice in some of the crates. Some of the dogs were able to roam the home while others were kept outdoors. One dog was even found inside a car that was parked on the property. The cats had their own room. All the animals had varying health issues, some rather severe. If officials would have removed them much sooner, seeing that the owners clearly ignored all warnings, maybe some of these babies would be in healthier situations. What is even more absurd 45 animals were again removed from this same home just four years prior. It is baffling that such owners, who proved they cannot care for animals, were allowed to do so again, affecting the lives and health of many more cats and dogs.


Please sign and share this petition everywhere possible to draw huge awareness to such horrific animal abuse, cruelty and hoarding cases like the case recently found in Texas. Additionally, we should demand that such abusers never be allowed to own another animal as long as they live.

Fire Judge Who Sentenced Rapist to 45 Days in Jail, Implied 14 year old Victim Was Promiscuous

A man admitted to raping a 14-year-old girl, but Texas State District Judge Jeanine Howard gave the man a meager 45-day sentence and probation at a rape crisis center. She says she issued the ruling because the victim "wasn't the victim she claimed to be," citing medical records showing she had 3 sexual partners in the past and had given birth to a baby -- even though her mother says claims of a pregnancy are untrue.



20-year-old Sir Young sexually assaulted the girl at her school. The girl's mother said her daughter has never been pregnant. She also said she was "livid" over the judge's comments.



The rape crisis center did not welcome the ruling, either.



"I don't believe [Judge Howard] understands what we do," the director of the Dallas Rape Crisis Center told CNN. "If she would have called us prior to issuing the conditions of probation, we would have told her and explained what we do at the center and how that's not possible."



Young people cannot properly consent to sexual activity. Giving rapists light sentences while implying the victim was promiscuous contributes to rape culture. Demand this judge be removed from the bench!
