Provide first responders animal/wildlife training

Too often, first responders such as police are called on to manage wildlife or animal-related issues that are not within their mandate. Due to a lack of funding and training, these incidents end in tragic violence. It is time for this to end.By calling on the OPP and Ministry of Community Safety and Corrections, we can put pressure on the political and bureaucratic systems to get funding and training for first responders across Ontario and prevent future tragedies.

Save New Jersey Black Bears!

Save New Jersey Black Bears!

When bears and people mix, it's the bears who pay the price--usually with their lives. New Jersey Governor Chris Christie has extended the hunting season on New Jersey bears, in part because Christie's staff actually saw a bear. Horror! The new law on black bear hunting allows hunters to take twice as many bears. Though black bears are not considered endangered, they have been squeezed out of most of their original habitat. Forests used to cover most of North America. Now those forest spaces are small and fragmented, tempting bears into the suburbs where they meet with the outrage of the species that stole their land. Killing bears is not just, nor is it a good solution to keeping them away from tract housing. In general, bears would prefer not to mix with people, but people feed bears or leave their garbage accessible, and that makes starving bears more courageous about approaching houses in the suburbs. Please join me in demanding that Christie do more to educate the public not to feed bears or leave garbage unsecured. We also need to ask Christie to implement aversion programs in New Jersey to correct the behavior of bears that are found wandering in human neighborhoods.

Ontario, Alberta and Quebec: Catch Up With the Rest of the Country and Ban Cosmetic Surgeries in Dogs

Ear-cropping and tail-docking are cruel and unnecessary surgeries done to dogs for purely cosmetic purposes. These procedures cause pain and distress to puppies, who often have the procedures at young ages: a few days old for tail-docking and 8-10 weeks old for ear-cropping. They also increase the chance of infection and may cause behavioural problems due to trauma. The rest of the provinces in Canada have come out against tail-docking and ear-cropping with banning of one or both in all provinces except Ontario, Alberta and Quebec. Much of Europe has also banned the practices. Sign today to tell Ontario, Quebec and Alberta to get with the times and ban these cruel and unnecessary practices.

Canada: End Captivity for Whales and Dolphins

Canada: End Captivity for Whales and Dolphins

Groundbreaking legislation has been introduced in Canada by Senator Wilfred Moore that would effectively make keeping whales and dolphins illegal. The legislation, Ending the Captivity of Whales and Dolphins Act, will ban captive breeding, imports, exports and live captures of all whales, dolphins and porpoises in Canada, with exceptions for situations involving the rescue of injured animals. Moore cited a number of reasons behind his efforts from social isolation and stress caused by captivity, in addition to calling the process of removing of individuals from the wild "disturbing." Despite the industry's best efforts to convince us captivity needs to continue to support education and conservation efforts, we know that even with the best of intentions we can never meet the needs of these far-ranging, intelligent and social animals. To continue confining them is nothing short of cruelty. Please sign this petition urging Canadian lawmakers to help set the stage for a future where we respect and protect cetaceans in the wild by passing this important piece of legislation.

Don't Prosecute Woman For Showing Compassion Toward Baby Animals!

Don't Prosecute Woman For Showing Compassion Toward Baby Animals!

Maria Vaccarella is an animal lover who did not hesitate to help when her neighbor told her about an injured squirrel in his yard. Maria and her husband took the squirrel in, put it in a box in their backyard, and gave it food. They were on the verge of calling the Humane Society when the squirrel gave birth. When the mother squirrel abandoned her babies, Maria waited 24 hours before intervening. She fed them and contacted a wildlife rehabilitator who told her to hold on to the baby squirrels until May. Under Maria's care, the babies thrived and quickly became a part of her family. Four months after Maria took in the baby squirrels, the New Jersey Division of Fish and Wildlife came to her door asking about the squirrels. They told her that it was illegal to take in wild animals, and that she had to hand over the squirrels to be taken to a rehabilitator immediately. Maria had no idea that keeping the squirrels was illegal, and immediately gave them to the Fish and Wildlife authorities.A few days later, Maria got a ticket in the mail for taking care of the squirrels. When she went to court to plead 'not guilty,' the judge told her that she could face up to six months in jail and up to $1,000 in fines. She is due back in court on January 27th for sentencing.Please sign this petition to demand that the New Jersey Division of Fish and Wildlife stop the unjust prosecution of a woman who did nothing more than show compassion toward two baby animals.

FWS - Put Permanent Nationwide End to Domestic Ivory Markets

FWS - Put Permanent Nationwide End to Domestic Ivory Markets

Urgent help is needed!  In a continuing effort to protect the elephant and poaching them for their precious tusks, attempts persist in ceasing the sales of ivory.  Great strides have been taken in the trade of animal parts from elephants as well as tigers, rhinos and other endangered species but ivory markets continue to be a threat for pachyderm.
The Wildlife Conservation Society is taking a step further in looking for advanced support to encourage the FWS to put a nationwide ban on domestic ivory markets and sales.  Read more - https://secure3.convio.net/wcs/site/Advocacy;jsessionid=7AF47C269AEC00E6F4EAF0ED8588B012.app303a?cmd=display&page=UserAction&id=817&utm_medium=email&utm_source=WCS&utm_campaign=owned&utm_content=2016-1-25-Alert1Test&s_src=CAMP_CITES-Alert&s_subsrc=Alert1Test&autologin=true. With an impending CITES or Conference of Parties (CoP17), who makes crucial decisions on the trade of these animal parts including the ivory, it is imperative that we speak out in another attempt to protect elephants.  Every day, elephants are slaughtered by poachers for profit of their body parts, namely their tusks and ivory. Some countries literally allow the sale of ivory, causing a continual threat to elephants.
Although we cannot control the ivory sales worldwide, the hope is that we shut them down nationwide throughout the United States.  Banning ivory markets is critical in the efforts to stop the poaching crisis affecting the slaughter of about 96 elephants daily throughout Africa.  In our efforts to shut down ivory markets nationwide, we have the exceptional opportunity to place the ivory bans on the global itinerary.
Our goals in this petition is to encourage the FWS to speak out at CITES impending meeting, asking for a nationwide ban on ivory market sales.  Such a proposal would protect elephants, rhinos and other endangered animals by standardizing or stopping such trades as the ivory markets.  We must ensure a ban on these markets and you can help us by signing and sharing this petition.

Urge the NSW Government to Reject an Aerial Cull of the Snowy Mountain Brumbies: Catch and Re-home them Instead

The National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) is calling for an aerial cull of wild horses in the Snowy Mountains, according to a report on smh.com.auNPWS and other groups say horses in Kosciuszko National Park are damaging fragile environments and should be shot from helicopters to protect mountain ecosystems.They also allege that any attempts to re-home wild horses are not practical and could also be cruel to the horses.However, the vice- president of the Hunter Valley Brumby Association, who is also an environmental scientist, says there is no scientific evidence of the horses damaging the National Park, and those animals re-homed settle well into their new surroundings. In addition, the brumby association believes the National Parks areas where the wild horses roam can be preserved. Aerial culling has had disastrous results in NSW previously - an aerial cull conducted in 2000 saw many horses left dying for days after inaccurate marksmen failed to kill them outright.Will you join me in urging the NSW Government to choose compassion over cruelty and allow a trap and re-homing scheme over aerial culling?Please sign and share the petition.
