Congress has less than a month until March 23rd to come up with a 2018 budget deal. That’s what the current Continuing Resolution keeping the government running expires.

Congress will decide between house legislation that allows the BLM to destroy healthy wild horses and burros, and the senate version, which continues to prohibit killing and slaughter.

Mussa The Rescued Baby Chimp Arrives Safely At Primate Sanctuary In The Democratic Republic Of Congo

It has been a busy few days for Mussa, a baby chimpanzee that was rescued from poachers in the Congo earlier this week.
Fortunately, Mussa has arrived safely at his new home at the Lwiro Primates Rescue and Rehabilitation Center located in the Democratic Republic of Congo.
“Every rescue is an effort from a lot of people from different organizations who work together to save lives,” the organization which is the only sanctuary in the DRC to accept all great ape and monkey species, shared in a post on its Facebook page. “It is a beautiful moment to see the result of everybody’s implication, in this case, we saved the life of Mussa.”

In a previous post, the organization credited Virunga National Park for rescuing Mussa from an uncertain future and for facilitating his transport further noting that, “Rescues are always a mix of feelings… happy because we are saving them but sad at the same time for what it means for wild populations.”
A remarkable Virunga National park pilot Anthony Caere, who assisted with Mussa’s rescue from poachers earlier this week, is among those responsible for sparing this young animal’s precious life.
A heartwarming video also posted on Facebook documents the two as they bonded while en route to safety at the sanctuary.
“This looks cute but is actually a sad story,” Caere posted on his Facebook page. “He should be with his mum… But happy we could give him a new good home! Thanks to the whole team! This is conservation!”

Mussa is reportedly playful while being treated for intestinal parasites and responding well to treatment.
According to its website, the CRPL currently cares for 72 chimpanzees and 92 monkeys of 11 different species, along with parrots, turtles, hyrax and porcupine. Sadly, all the animals have been victims of poaching and the pet trade.
“It is illegal in the DR Congo to keep any primate as a pet. As with chimpanzees, all of the CRPL residents are removed from the forests illegally by poachers and have been confiscated by the ICCN before being transported to the CRPL for long-term care,” the organization explains on its website. ”Most of these animals arrive in very bad physical and psychological condition due to the trauma they experience during the hunting process, and as a result of being kept as a pet. It is the long-term goal of the CRPL to be able to reintroduce our monkeys to the forests of DRC if their forest homes can be made safe enough to do so.”

Petition · Jeff Bezos: Remove NRAtv from @Amazon’s Streaming Service & Website · Change.org

Amazon needs to remove NRA tv.com from their services, sites and offering immediately. The NRA has long ignored its role in promoting gun violence and betrayed the names of good and responsible gun owners. It’s time to hold them and their partners, accountable.

The NRA represents millions of gun owners BUT, nowhere near all or a majority of us gun owners. In fact, less than 10 percent of gun owners belong to the NRA. We need to include gun owners in this fight – responsible people who don’t feel that the NRA speaks for them- so let’s keep this fight focused. The NRA is a group that’s rotten to the core and a company like Amazon should not be spreading their message.

Petition · Hyatt Hotels: BOYCOTT THE HYATT HOTELS · Change.org

The Hyatt has open a property in Cancun where they have multiple captive Dolphins stuck living in a standard size swimming pool. This is not only cruel and unethical, but sets a terrible precedent for other major hotel chains to replicate the same business model.

Dolphins, like any other wild animal, are supposed to be in their natural habitat instead of a small pool being exploited solely for human entertainment. These are living, feeling, sentient creatures and we must treat them as such.
