Petition: The Clock Is Winding Down to Save the Spoon-billed Sandpiper

The spoon-billed Sandpiper need your help. The flat – beaked wader bird is listed on the International Union of Conservation of Nature’s Red List of Critically Endangered and without Swift action, it’s situation could go from bad to worse.

The birds most important habitat is the coastal waters of Tiaozini, China. Each year, the mudflats provide crucial resting ground for the migrating birds on its more than 5,000 mile long journey, and it takes it from Russia to the areas in China and other Asian countries.

But each year more and more of the Jiangsu mudflats are turned into land by the government – 26 square miles so far.

Now, the government wants to develop the remaining habitat 231.5 square miles by 2020 leaving the last remaining 650 Birds on earth with no place to turn.

Yesterday, On National Horse Protection Day, 60 Wild Horses’ Lives Were Spared From Being Hunted At Navajo Nation In AZ – World Animal News

By Lauren Lewis –
March 2, 2018
Last week, the lives of up to 60 wild horses in Arizona were threatened by a hunt to kill the “excess” feral animals in a local trophy hunting area.
Fortunately, on March 1st, which was National Horse Protection Day, the planned massacre was canceled and the horses are safe for now.
Navajo Nation President Russell Begaye acknowledged on Tuesday that while the growing population of feral horses on the Navajo Nation is a problem that has to be addressed, he determined it would not be resolved with a wild horse hunt.
“We understand the concerns of the people,” President Begaye said in a statement that was in part a response to the outrage expressed by animal advocates. “We know the issue of horses is an emotional one with strong feelings on all sides. My administration will not condone a horse hunt for controlling the overpopulation of feral horses. But we do need to implement a management plan to preserve and protect Navajo land for future generations.”
The president’s statement comes on the heels of a 2018 Horse Hunt Proclamation issued last week by the Navajo Department of Fish and Wildlife (DNR). Since that proclamation has been rescinded and the hunt will no longer take place, Fish and Wildlife now are working to pursue alternate methods of feral horse management.
Sadly, some of their alternative approaches such as trapping, castration and birth control, sill equate to inhumane methods to many animal advocates. Adoptions of the feral horses is a much more welcome plan.
“All of these methods, together, will address the problem of overpopulation that is causing extensive damage to our ecosystems,” President Begaye said. “If we don’t take action now, the overgrazing will have major impacts on drought conditions that we anticipate in both the short and long-term.”
The Navajo Nation Commission on Emergency Management on Monday approved a new State of Emergency Drought Declaration. The commission is anticipating large-scale drought conditions this summer, which will create a critical shortage of water and range feed for livestock, resulting in the poor physical condition of livestock and an increase in disease.

Petition · Hyatt Hotels: BOYCOTT THE HYATT HOTELS ·

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.

California Puts Freeze on New Uses of Bee-killing Pesticides

California Puts Freeze on New Uses of Bee-killing Pesticides

SACRAMENTO, Calif.— California’s Department of Pesticide Regulation has announced it will no longer consider any applications by pesticide companies that would expand use of bee-killing neonicotinoid pesticides in the state.

The announcement comes just two weeks after the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency began considering dramatically expanding use of the highly toxic neonicotinoid thiamethoxam on more than 165 million acres of farmland in the United States.

“California’s decision to halt further increases in harmful neonicotinoid pesticides is an important step toward reversing dangerous bee declines,” said Lori Ann Burd, director of the Center for Biological Diversity’s environmental health program. “As the Trump EPA works to weaken protections for pollinators, it’s reassuring that California continues to follow a course of reason and science.”

California’s freeze on new neonicotinoid uses and products covers all new and pending applications and will be lifted once the agency finishes an ongoing evaluation of the pesticides. California’s evaluation, which is being done in conjunction with the U.S. EPA, has identified harms to pollinators, aquatic insects and birds from the use of neonicotinoids.

The state’s efforts to prevent expansion of harmful neonicotinoid pesticides stands in sharp contrast to the EPA’s decision last month to consider allowing the spraying of the highly toxic pesticide thiamethoxam on tens of millions of acres of wheat, barley, corn, sorghum, alfalfa, rice and potatoes.

On the same day it began considering approving broader use of thiamethoxam, the EPA released multiple scientific assessments that found commonly used neonicotinoid pesticides can kill and harm birds of all sizes.

The EPA analysis found that if neonic-treated seeds make up just 1 percent to 6 percent of a bird’s diet, serious harms could result.

Early last year the EPA changed from mandatory to voluntary a common-sense rule that would have placed limited restrictions on neonics when commercial honeybees were present in fields.

Neonicotinoids are a class of pesticides known to have both acute and chronic effects on honeybees, birds, butterflies and other pollinator species, and they are a major factor in overall pollinator declines. These systemic insecticides cause entire plants, including pollen and fruit, to become toxic to pollinators; they are also slow to break down and therefore build up in the environment.

A large and growing body of independent science links neonicotinoids to catastrophic bee declines. Twenty-nine independent scientists who conducted a global review of more than 1,000 independent studies on neonicotinoids found overwhelming evidence linking the pesticides to declines in populations of bees, birds, earthworms, butterflies and other wildlife.

The Center for Biological Diversity is a national, nonprofit conservation organization with more than 1.6 million members and online activists dedicated to the protection of endangered species and wild places.
