Petition ยท Virginia State Legislature: Ban Balloon Releases in Virginia ยท Change.org

www.change.org

Balloons that are released into the air, both latex and foil, always return to land or water as harmful and potentially deadly litter. The current law in Virginia states that releasing up to 49 balloons is allowable but more than 50 is illegal. We must change this law in the 2021 General Assembly to ban all intentional balloon releases. 

The law in Virginia (ยง 29.1-556.1. Release of certain balloons prohibited; civil penalty) currently states that ” It shall be unlawful for any person to knowingly release or cause to be released into the atmosphere within a one-hour period fifty or more balloons which are (i) made of a nonbiodegradable or nonphotodegradable material or any material which requires more than five minutesโ€™ contact with air or water to degrade and (ii) inflated with a substance which is lighter than air.” 

Research has shown that balloon-related litter is one of the most common types of litter on Virginia’s remote beaches. In many cases, more than 100 pieces of balloon related litter, including foil & latex balloons, plastic ribbons & attachments such as plastic discs and laminated notes, have been found on one mile of beach. 

Balloon litter is considered one of the most harmful types of litter to wildlife. Balloon litter not only harms marine animals, especially sea turtles, and shorebirds, but there are documented interactions with livestock, wild horses and inland species of wildlife as well.

We must change the Virginia law to ban all balloon releases, even so-called “biodegradable” balloons. The Balloon Council announced in August, 2018 that it no longer supports balloon releases. Cities and towns all over the country are banning balloon releases. If you are from Virginia, please sign this petition so that we can help to reduce this dangerous type of litter in our environment. 

Virginia residents: please be sure to share your location information when signing so we can show the Virginia representatives that Virginians want to see this law change. Thank you!

Petition ยท Urge South Korean President Moon Jae-in: End the South Korean dog meat trade before another pandemic hits the world! ยท

Animal Liberation Wave started this petition to South Korean President Moon Jae-In

This petition is jointly run by Animal Liberation Wave and Last Chance for Animals.

COVID19 is our wake-up call to redefine the human-animal relationship and to put an end to the consumption of animals. In an attempt to prevent another global pandemic originating from animals, China has moved to end not only wildlife consumption but also the dog meat trade by leaving the animals out of the announced draft list of what is considered โ€˜livestockโ€™. This leaves South Korea, another remaining major dog-eating country, in shame as they have not taken any action to end this practice.

Filthy dog farms where there are no regulations on hygienic practices were the breeding ground for the canine influenza A H3N2 virus first detected in 2007. They remain a ticking bomb for another zoonotic pandemic of epic proportions. Additionally, just recently, the Chinese government has also taken action by recognizing all dogs as โ€˜companion animalsโ€™ as is the international standard.  

South Korea is the only country in the world that systematically breeds and raises dogs for meat. In 3 thousand filthy โ€˜dog farmsโ€™ scattered across the countryโ€™s countryside, one million dogs are born, raised, and slaughtered every year. Although a few mayors/governors have tried to drive dog slaughter out from cities or major markets, dog meat is being sold everywhere, all year round. The brutal dog meat trade is an ongoing problem in South Korea. 

In 2018, when 2 anti-dog meat petitions historically reached over 200,000 signatures by the South Korean people, the government replied that it will โ€œconsider revising the related regulations to remove dogs from the countryโ€™s list of livestock.โ€ However, no action of any sort has been taken since then.

We hereby urge South Koreaโ€™s President Moon Jae-in to remember the governmentโ€™s declaration in 2018 and announce a road-map to put an end to the dog meat trade. South Korea, the 14th largest economy in the world and one of the most modern countries around the globe must not fall behind. NOW is the time to move in the progressive direction and end the countryโ€™s notorious dog meat trade.  

Please take action on behalf of the animals by signing and sharing this petition.

New Yorkโ€™s Renewable Energy Regulations Neglect Bird Impacts | American Bird Conservancy

New York released draft regulations in September to implement the Accelerated Renewable Energy Growth and Community Benefit Act, which was passed into law earlier this year (in April 2020). Twenty-five conservation groups, including ABC, have expressed concern about these draft regulations, which do little to address renewable energy projects’ substantial negative impacts on birds.

The groups propose commonsense solutions that would correct some of the regulations’ major flaws and provide better protection for birds. By incorporating the recommended changes from these bird conservation experts, the State could set a positive precedent for environmentally friendly renewable energy development. But to make this happen, substantial revisions to the current draft regulations would be needed.

The Accelerated Renewable Energy Growth and Community Benefit Act is intended to streamline the approval process for wind and solar energy projects as part of the State’s approach to achieving its renewable energy goals. Among other things, the law established a new Office of Renewable Energy Siting (ORES), charged with developing and overseeing the process for renewable energy project development.

In September, the ORES released draft regulations to implement the Act. โ€œImplementation of this major new regulation has proceeded at a breakneck pace,โ€ says Joel Merriman, ABC’s Bird-Smart Wind Energy Campaign Director. โ€œUnfortunately, in the draft regulations, very little consideration is given to bird protection. We fully support renewable energy development as part of a broader strategy for combating climate change, but this has to be done in an environmentally responsible manner. That includes taking care of our birds, and so far these regulations fall far short in this area.โ€

Wind energy development is an important element of fighting climate change, but it does not come without environmental costs. ABC estimates that more than 500,000 birds are killed annually from collisions with wind turbines in the U.S. Given projected industry build-out, that figure is expected to increase to more than 1.4 million annually by 2030. Birds are also killed by powerlines installed to connect wind facilities to the energy grid, and yet others are displaced by facility development. Some species, such as Golden Eagles, are more vulnerable to turbine collisions, and due to slow reproductive rates, these birds have less capacity to recover from losses.

โ€œWhen the law was being considered, we expressed serious concerns,โ€ says Merriman. โ€œNow that we have seen the draft regulations to implement the law, it’s worse than we feared.โ€

The draft regulations are paired with uniform standards and conditions for project siting and planning. They lack adequate protections for birds, including appropriate project siting, field studies, and other steps that, if established in the law, would conceivably result in an environmentally balanced approach.

โ€œThe draft regulations don’t allow enough time for necessary field studies for wildlife,โ€ says Merriman. โ€œThey also dramatically reduce the opportunity for public and expert input in the planning process, and they ignore considerations for the majority of bird species. Worst of all, there is nothing to influence where projects are sited, which is the most important aspect of minimizing impacts to wildlife. This is why we worked with other concerned conservation organizations to clearly articulate the problems with this proposed process, and how some of them might be addressed.โ€

A total of 25 conservation organizations signed a letter to the State outlining the many deficiencies in the draft regulations. โ€œIt’s possible to work around some of the biggest issues in ways that will minimize negative impacts to birds,โ€ says Merriman. โ€œFor example, if wildlife field studies are required before a pre-application meeting, there may be enough information to make smart planning decisions in many instances. This is the way things already work in the wind energy industry โ€“ it’s no burden to developers and results in better outcomes.โ€

Merriman continues, โ€œIt’s hard to understand: In other arenas, New York has done great things for birds. The State can maintain this commitment by making some improvements to the draft regulations, such as establishing commonsense setbacks from high biodiversity areas and requiring some already-standard field studies to inform project planning. It’s critical that we balance the need for renewable energy development with protecting our vulnerable bird populations.โ€

ABC thanks the Leon Levy Foundation for its support of ABC’s Bird-Smart Wind Energy Campaign.
