America‘s wolves need our help!

America’s wolves were nearly eradicated in the 20th century. Now, after a remarkable recovery in parts of the country, our wolves are once again in serious danger.

Federal sharpshooters are preparing for aerial wolf killing in Northern Idaho.

In Montana, the anti-wolf Sportsmen for Fish and Wildlife are offering a $100 bounty per dead wolf.

Wyoming is moving forward with a plan that would allow wolves to be shot on sight across much of the state, including in National Forests and in some of the best available gray wolf habitat in the…

Nature Is Speaking – Robert Redford is The Redwood

The evil you do remains with you. The good you do, comes back to you!

A Small Act Of Kindness Can Bring Smile On Million Faces

A woman baked chapatti (roti) for members of her family and an extra one for a hungry passer-by. She kept the extra chapatti on the window sill, for whosoever would take it away. Every day, a hunchback came and took away the chapatti. Instead of expressing gratitude, he muttered the following words as he went his way: “The evil you do remains with you: The good you do, comes back to you!” This went on, day after day. Every day, the hunchback came, picked up the chapatti and uttered the words:

“The evil you do, remains with you: The good you do, comes back to you!” The woman felt irritated. “Not a word of gratitude,” she said to herself… “Everyday this hunchback utters this jingle! What does he mean?” One day, exasperated, she decided to do away with him. “I shall get rid of this hunchback,” she said. And what…

When Animals Disappear, So Do Our Social Structures

Emilio Cogliani

The fates of humans and other animals are even more intertwined than we thought.

We humans know that when the numbers of other species dips, it’s bad. But we can’t always pinpoint why. We generally understand that it’s sad for the animals that were killed, that disappearing wildlife messes up the planet’s ecosystem, and that there’s something morally wrong about the way we’re dealing with nature.

But now research out of UC Berkeley and UC Santa Barbara is providing evidence that a decline in animals actually means that our social structures are crumbling.

A bunch of scholars, most of them from Berkeley’s Department of Environmental Science, Policy, and Management, set out to determine what effect wildlife decline has on society, and to highlight appropriate policy responses. The resulting study, called “Wildlife Decline and Social Conflict” is a policy paper that surveyed experts and existing literature. Science published it in…

Bahrain’s marine life threatened?

From the Daily Tribune in Bahrain:

Environment: Bahrain’s marine life threatened?

Oct 8 2014

If the sight of dumped oil bottles and other waste like plastic bags, fishing lines and diapers at local beaches wasn’t horrifying enough, a recent washed up carcass of a baby whale, at one of the Kingdom’s beaches, is truly a cause of concern for all.

While marine debris has been affecting the beautiful coastlines of the Kingdom for a long time now, it seems human wastage and carelessness are endangering the marine habitat too.

Bahrain Beachcombers (a volunteer group committed towards cleaning the shorelines of the island), Founder, Darren Schneider discovered the remains of the small mammal while going for a swim at the Nurana Island.

Lions, new film

Dear Kitty. Some blog

This video is called Lion Ark – Official Trailer.

From Wildlife Extra:

ADI’s award-winning film Lion Ark goes global

The award-winning documentary Lion Ark is to be distributed worldwide thanks to a deal the charity Animal Defenders International (ADI) brokered with ITV Studios Global Entertainment (ITVS GE).

The deal was signed ahead of Lion Ark’s theatrical release in cinemas across the UK in November.

Lion Ark follows a team from ADI as they rescued 25 lions from circuses in Bolivia after the country’s government banned wild animal acts. The government’s decision was the direct result of ADI’s two-year undercover investigation into circuses across South America.

The film shows the team journeying across a vast, hostile terrain to track down the circuses defying the new law in order to save the animals from a lifetime of cruelty. It reaches a joyous finale as 25 lions are airlifted in ADI’s Operation…

Cruelty is Cruelty, Any Way You Slice It

Emilio Cogliani

While generally not considered newsworthy, chickens have recently been in the spotlight. First, chickens made the news around the world as orthodox Jewish communities practiced the ritual of Kapparot — a Yom Kippur tradition of swinging a live chicken over “the sinner’s” head and then slaughtering it. Chicken brutality in Fresno, California also made headlines, when close to 1,000 chickens were bludgeoned to death by four teenagers who broke into a farm.

“What a bad week to be a chicken,” you might have thought.

Friends, it is always a bad week to be a chicken.

It is human nature to reel against heinous and purposeful cruelty. For instance, the story of a Brooklyn man who kicked a cat while being filmed recently went viral, as did the infamous Michael Vick dog fighting scandal. We Americans have little tolerance for deliberate cruelty, so the media attention received by the bludgeoned chickens…

Wildlife Killing Contests and the Failure of Government

Emilio Cogliani

This winter, wildlife in the northern Rocky Mountains will likely be terrorized by a swarm of armed humans elbowing and off-roading each other out of the way in a frenzied race to see who can kill the most animals in 72 hours during Idaho’s “Predator Derby.”

If permitted, the killing contest would take place every winter, beginning on January 2, 2015, and would include prizes for killing a wide variety of wildlife species, including wolves, coyotes, weasels, skunks, jackrabbits, raccoons, and starlings, across a large swath of eastern Idaho. Last year, the contestants killed 21 coyotes and at least one badger.

The Bureau of Land Management, charged with managing public lands on our behalf, received 56,490 comments in opposition to the event and 10 in favor. Still, the environmental assessment released this week clearly signals that the BLM intends to issue a Special Recreation Permit (SRP) to conduct slaughtering contest…

LEGO Ends 50-Year Tie-Up Wth Shell After Anti-Arctic Oil Campaign By Greenpeace – 10 October 2014

LEGO has announced it will not renew its contract with Shell ending a 50-year association. It comes three months after a Greenpeace campaign to prevent the exploration of the Arctic which got the support by more than a million people worldwide.

The toy maker has a $110 million marketing contract with Shell which the company will not renew. Since the 1960s, LEGO has built play sets branded with the Shell logo. The sets, including filling stations, tanker trucks and Shell-sponsored race cars, have been sold at Shell gas stations and toy stores.

Three months ago Greenpeace released a video demonstrating an oil spill in the polar region. The video ends with two captions: “Shell is polluting our kids’ imaginations. Tell LEGO to end its partnership with Shell,” urging support for the initiative.

Hey,

I just wanted to make sure you saw this email? There’s good news! Thanks in part to the response we helped generate, the FCC has extended the deadline to receive comments about Comcast’s attempted internet takeover until October 29th.

50,000 people have taken action already. The FCC will be surprised by this kind of response to a merger question, but the deck is stacked against us so we need to go all out. Can we count on you to help us get to 100,000 comments by the end of this week?

It’s Official: Wolves Are Protected In California!

Howling For Justice

OR7

OR7  – dual citizen of California and Oregon (:

October 9, 2014

Even though, officially, there are no known gray wolves in California, the state extended endangered species protection to canis lupus today. This is critically important, since the USFWS plans to rubber stamp a national wolf delisting plan, removing all federal protections for wolves in the lower 48. Without state protections, wolves across the country will face tremendous risk.

Gray wolves are subjected to persecution in Montana,Idaho, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Michigan, even Washington and Oregon, where they remain listed. Wyoming wolves, until recently, could be shot on sight in 80% of the state. Last week, US District Judge Amy Berman Jackson,  placed Wyoming wolves  back on the Endangered Species List. Her ruling was the result of a lawsuit challenging the state’s faulty “wolf management” plan, specifically the predator zone, where wolves could…

Exposing the Big Game

http://www.projectcoyote.org/

In response to an application submitted by Idaho for Wildlife to host a Predator Hunt Derby on public land, the BLM is accepting public comments on an Environmental Assessment (EA) through October 16th.

Idaho for Wildlife is seeking to repeat their highly controversial killing contest targeting wolves, coyotes, bobcats, foxes and other predators  — offering prizes to those who kill the most and largest animals —   in a multi-year “predator derby” scheduled for the next five winters (with the next one scheduled for January 2-4, 2015).

The EA comment period comes following a scoping period that resulted in approximately 56,500 public comments of which a mere 10 were in support of the permit being issued. Thank you for making your voices heard during the scoping process! Your input is needed again!

Express your support for Alternative B- the “No Action Alternative” – which would deny Idaho for Wildlife’s…

Homeless Man Who Couldn’t Care For His Dogs Finds Perfect Animal Lover To Give Them Proper TLC

Emilio Cogliani

This homeless man understands the meaning of selfless love. And Robyn Arouty, a portrait photographer and animal rescuer based in Houston, wears her affection for all animals on her sleeve. It was her innate sense of compassion that led to her latest rescue: two homeless pups outside of the city’s train station.

During her lunch break on Oct. 4, Arouty was waiting for a train to pass along the tracks near her studio when she noticed the strays walking toward the moving train, she told HuffPost in an email. A man followed behind them, “holding a bag, looking generally tattered, not paying much attention to the dogs or much else,” Arouty wrote in a Facebook post about the incident.

After the train passed, Arouty asked the man if they were his dogs, and noticed that the animals were in need of medical…

Emergency Protection Sought for California’s Tricolored Blackbirds

2014 Surveys Reveal 87 Percent Population Decline Since 1930s

SACRAMENTO, Calif.— The Center for Biological Diversity today filed an emergency petition to protect the tricolored blackbird — which once formed massive nesting colonies of millions of birds in California’s Central Valley — as endangered under the California Endangered Species Act. Tricolored blackbirds have declined dramatically due to destruction of wetlands and native grasslands, shooting, pesticide use, and mowing and harvest of crops used as nesting sites during nesting season.
