FRISCO — Rare and beleaguered Mexican gray wolves may get a little more room to roam in the Southwest, as the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service proposes changes to a recovery plan from the species, including new releases of captive-bred wolves to bolster wild populations.

The new releases could happen in new areas of New Mexico and parts of Arizona where there are no wolf packs yet, and the federal agency’s proposed changes would also allow wolves to roam from the Mexican border to Interstate 40, a much broader region than currently permitted.

Only 83 Mexican wolves live in the wilds of the Southwest, including just five breeding pairs. Scientists have shown that inbreeding caused by a lack of wolf releases to the wild, coupled with too…

Say NO to Arctic Drilling

~ ~ ~ Please Sign Petition ~ ~ ~

GarryRogers Nature Conservation

The U.S. government is starting to prepare a five-year program—spanning the years 2017 to 2022—that could open the Arctic Ocean to oil and gas drilling. Stand with us against new oil and gas leasing and protect the animals and people who depend on a clean, healthy Arctic Ocean.

Tell the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) to say no to risky Arctic drilling.

  • Sally Jewell


GR:  Fossil fuels pollute our air and water.  Overfishing, ocean acidification, and other human activities are already harming marine life.  Let’s stop looking for oil and focus on cleaning up the mess we’ve made.  Please sign the petition.

Tiger Day starts an Avaaz petition to close Chinese tiger farms

~ ~ ~ Please Sign Petition ~ ~ ~

GarryRogers Nature Conservation

“No tiger cub deserves to be born into a life of suffering and eventually be killed for its fur, and other parts used for “chinese magic” or bogus potions.

“China is allowing the sale of captive-bred tiger skins and body parts. They are denying a UN agreement which calls for such trade to be banned. The conditions in these farms are horrible!Images appeared on in our mailbox showing deceased tigers from these camps. Our staff was shocked but decided to publish them. Warning, these images are not for the weak-hearted.

“Something needs to be done! There are just 3200 wild tigers living in the wild and over 5000 held captive in these tiger farms! These creatures deserve a worthy life and we want to give it to them. If we move as one, we can make a change! ”


GR:  During the past century we lost 97% of…

Dog Bites Man – Again And Again


dog-attackWritten by:  Heather Clemenceau

I believe in an animal Bill of Rights, and I’m opposed to killing dogs based solely on their appearance, but none of that matters to the Pit bull Advocacy Movement. Dog bites have become one of the most emotionally charged issues that divide animal activists. For some time now, I’ve seen the Pitbull Advocacy Movement (PBAM) privileging the rights of dogs over the rights of human beings and their own pets. by accusing people who are skeptical about the aggression of fighting breeds of being “racists,” ”bigots,” and “breed bullies.”

I’ve had a special interest in this subject matter for a few years now. I’m a dog bite victim – the classic “dog bites man” story, In 2008 I was bitten by a molosser breed dog that I had known for two years. The owner was not irresponsible except in not informing me that the dog…
