France overturns ban on captive dolphin breeding

Reproduced from  https://phys.org/news/2018-01-france-overturns-captive-dolphin.html#jCp

France’s highest administrative court on Monday (22/1/18) overturned a ban on the breeding of dolphins in captivity, a victory for marine parks which had argued the move could put them out of business.

The previous Socialist government ordered the ban, which also applied to killer whales, last May after complaints from animal rights groups hoping to end marine and aquarium shows.

But former environment minister Segolene Royale had tightened the ban at the last minute, and failed to consult the public and others on a measure that could have forced aquariums to close.

Aquariums and parks such as Marineland in southern France—the biggest attraction of its kind in Europe—have faced growing criticism in recent years over their animals’ living conditions.

“This is excellent news for our animals and animal parks in France,” said Pascal Picot, managing director at Marineland…

“Let’s connect with the rhythms of Universe and celebrate Super Blue Blood Full Moon and Lunar Eclipse!
On January 31st Mother Moon will rise as a Full Moon, Supermoon, and Blue Moon!
On the top of that, Moon will experience a total lunar eclipse and appear blood
red or copper-red in the sky. This celestial coincidence has not happened in
more than 150 years. It is a Blue Moon because it is a second Full Moon in
January. It is also a Supermoon because it is in the closest position to the
Earth and appears much larger than usual.
The eclipse symbolizes opening of new doorways and closing of old ones. It is a
transformative time to transmute old emotional scars into new understanding.
Stay positive and balanced during this time when feelings are amplified and new
unfamiliar energies of high intensity come into play. Stay true to yourself and

Rep. Rodney Frelinghuysen’s retirement could set off a race for the top spot on the Appropriations Committee.

Goodbye and Good Riddance!

Congressman Rodney Frelinghuysen Who Voted to Return Horse Slaughter to the U.S. Will Retire!

In July 2017, the House Appropriations Committee voted to allow horse slaughterhouses to operate in the U.S. In a 27-25 vote, Reps Frelinghuysen (R-NJ) and Mario Diaz-Balart (R-FL) flipped their votes in favor of horse slaughter. Their votes led many to speculate who had gotten to them because neither rep had a record of supporting horse slaughter in the past.

Luckily, the Senate Appropriations Committee disagreed with the House and voted in November to uphold the ban and prevent horse slaughter from returning. Now the matter must come before a Congressional Conference Committee where a final decision will be made.

Frelinghuysen’s own constituents were…

Urgent Action – Make Bosnia remain fur free.

EU Parliament Exhibition

Dear Mark

It’s been a big week for the anti-fur movement

around Europe.  After many months of planning

and preparation, the Make Fur History exhibition launched in the European Parliament, organised

by the Fur Free Alliance, including Respect for

Animals, and Eurogroup For Animals.

The event showed the facts about how real

fur is produced, and why more national

bans on fur factory farming are needed

in the EU. Many MEPs agreed to support

fur farming bans in EU Member States

where fur production is still permitted,

and signed a Fur Free Pledge.

Visitors saw a series of striking photographs,

could immerse themselves into the shocking

reality of the fur farming industry through

a virtual reality experience.

Alliance and Campaign Director at Respect
