CAMPAIGN AGAINST CANNED HUNTING: The CACH campaign seems to be growing – and not surprisingly, as so few reasonable people would support the farming of lions to be hunted. I now ring travel agents when I see advertisements for tours to Africa and check they are sending their clients to reputable wildlife sanctuaries. Canned Hunting was also mentioned in a recent 60 Minutes story on Kevin Richardson and his lovely shampooed looking lions in South Africa.  Richardson is on the “reputable” list – but I do think he takes risks with the lions, even though they adore him. I did finally watch the story that was on Dateline SBS in January How Much Would You Pay to Kill a Lion?  I could hardly watch as lions were shot and the hunters gloated over their successful kills.

Lion, bear and tiger – once the pets of a drug dealer, and now still cohabiting. Lion, bear and tiger – once…

Launching Legal Action to Help Angel and Other Dolphins

Animal Blawg

Sarah Lucas

I was in Taiji, Japan – the dolphin hunting capital of the world – when I read Kathleen Stachowski’s wonderful Animal Blawg on the ubiquity of speciesism. Kathleen observes: “speciesism is everywhere and so thoroughly normalized that it’s invisible in plain sight”. I nodded my head when I read this, as I’ve thought it many times as I stood on the shore of Taiji’s cove helplessly watching dolphins being herded to their deaths – the cruelty is so extreme and horrifying, yet it seems to be hidden in plain sight to those inflicting it.

ANGEL 16In Taiji, such hunts take place nearly every day for half the year, annually capturing around 2,000 small whales (dolphins, porpoises and pilot whales). As the International Convention for the Regulation of Whaling does not apply to small whales – or at least, is argued not to by pro-whaling countries – small whales…

Straight from the Horse's Heart

Information supplied by the Nevada office of the BLM

the area is managed for zero wild horses”

Wild Horse Trapping Update

The Humboldt wild horse water bait trap operations have been temporarily suspended since trapped numbers have been relatively low over the last three days. Trapping operations will continue on July 7, 2014 with the anticipation that the horses will be more accustomed to the trap facilities. As of June 27, BLM has gathered a total of 37 horses out of 100.

Goal of Trapping:

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Winnemucca District, Humboldt River Field Office will use water trapping to achieve and maintain a population of zero wild horses within the Humboldt Herd Area (HA). The Humboldt HA is not managed for wild horses due to the checkerboard land pattern and therefore no AML has been set and the…

This Texas Cheerleader Likes Killing Lions and Smiling in Photos With Their Carcasses

School’s out for the summer, but 19-year-old Texas Tech cheerleader Kendall Jones isn’t your average college student hustling at a corporate internship or grinding through a part-time job at the mall. Instead, the avid hunter has hauled her pink bow and arrow across the Atlantic to shoot lions, leopards, and zebras in South Africa. Thanks to Jones’ gruesome Facebook photos documenting the bloody summer spree (which she is apparently filming for a television show), wildlife activists are working to get the teen’s page banned from the social media site and her access to the continent revoked.  

Jones, who has a bright…

Slaying the Protein Dragon: Plant-based Protein and the Endurance Athlete | One Green Planet

Life or Lunch?

st-georges-day“But where do you get your protein?”

As a plant-based ultra-endurance athlete, if I had a dollar for every time I fielded this inquiry, I could put my four kids through college.  So let’s address the elephant in the room, once and for all.

We live in a society in which we have been mistakenly led to believe that milk and dairy products are the only source of dietary protein worthy of merit.  Without copious amounts of animal protein, it’s impossible to be healthy, let alone perform as an athlete, train and race at your peak. The message is everywhere – from commercials pushing chocolate milk as the ultimate athletic recovery beverage to compelling food labels to a dizzying array of fitness expert testimonials.  Protein, protein, protein — generally reinforced with the adage that more is better.

Whether you are a professional athlete or a couch potato, this hardened notion…
