End Legalized Slaughter of Wolves That Reportedly Led to Death of Husky Pup

A Montana woman reportedly hunted and skinned a husky puppy, mistaking it as a wolf. The destruction of wolves is still allowed throughout much of the U.S., which encourages hunters to kill them seemingly without much concern for ethics or welfare. Demand wolf hunting be banned across the nation.

Don’t Fund Nuclear Power Plant That Will Kill Marine Ecosystem

A greenlighted nuclear power plant could kill 500 million fish, upend marine ecosystems, and cause a wide-scale environmental disaster with decades-long repercussions. Demand leaders rethink their reckless decision.

Protect West Coast Fishers From Extinction

West coast fishers are small, carnivorous mammals that have been threatened with extinction for the last 20 years. Still, these animals receive only limited governmental protections and it is still widely legal to hunt, trap, and kill them throughout certain regions. Demand these animals receive the protections they deserve.

Stop Slaughtering Sea Lions for Our Mistakes

People are slaughtering innocent sea lions in the name of fish conservation. Sea lions, however, are not the cause of dwindling fish populations—humans are. Demand an end to this cruelty and a more effective plan that involves changing our own behaviors, not killing sea lions.

Use Science to Help Conserve Endangered Wildlife

Animal-tracking tags have long been used to better understand the behaviors of endangered species. However, the lack of public tracking data makes it difficult for conservationists to communicate and strategize. Demand all animal trackers be required to enter basic information into an accessible, online database to preserve animals.

Don’t Let Whales Go Extinct for Human Delicacies

There are only an estimated 350 North American right whales living in the world today, and the use of deadly lobster nets only pushes them closer to extinction. Demand that all plans to certify a lobster fishery in the Gulf of Maine be permanently halted in order to protect this vulnerable species.

Don’t Destroy Grizzly Bear Recovery Zones With Logging

A vital recovery zone for grizzly bears has been threatened by the approval of a massive logging project. This would further endanger the grizzles’ population and release significant amounts of carbon into the atmosphere, contributing to the already devastating effects of global warming. Demand continued protections for this essential species.

Stop Spraying Family Pets and Wildlife with Poisonous Cyanide

A dog was senselessly killed and a 14-year-old boy scarred for life by a “cyanide bomb” that was put out to kill wild animals. Stop killing and maiming wildlife, pets, and children with these deadly and inhumane devices.

Don’t Evict Vital Bat Species From Their Nesting Sites

Bats are vital to American ecosystems, and yet they are flushed out of their natural habitats at an alarmingly high rate. While many end up roosting in manmade structures, there are no rules or regulations protecting them during eviction procedures and bats are often injured or stressed in the process. Demand more suitable alternative roosting sites to keep bats safe during hibernation and pup birth.

Defend What Remains of Our World’s Biodiversity

Sources have estimated that more than 1 million species are currently at the risk of extinction, with thousands of others threatened by continuous human activity. Now, the world’s top representatives are convening to take action. Demand they work together to preserve our world’s biodiversity–and fast.

Stop Capturing Whales and Implanting Them with Invasive Electrodes

Whales are being coerced into tiny cages and implanted with electrodes by the US Navy. These conditions are extremely stressful for the animals and have failed to produce meaningful data. Demand an end to this cruel research endeavor.

Return Formerly Threatened Species to Their Habitats to Restore Ecosystems

The reintroduction of wolves to Yellowstone had transformative effects. Now, scientists are suggesting similar steps be taken to reintroduce several select species into their former habitats. Demand the government fund these efforts and help to replenish entire ecosystems.

Stop Killing and Wasting Sealife With Fishing Nets

Millions of metric tons of fish are unintentionally caught and killed through a fishing technique referred to as bottom-trawling. Most of them never even make it to our plates. Demand an end to this excessive waste and better regulate bottom-trawling.

Stop Treating Alligators and Other Wildlife as Pets

Wally, an emotional support alligator, has brought up questions around the legitimacy of using undomesticated animals as therapy pets and the morality of keeping wild animals in homes. Protect wildlife and people by demanding that wild creatures no be used as service animals.

Stop Algae Bloom From Suffocating and Poisoning Thousands of Marine Animals

Toxic algae is killing thousands of fish, poisoning marine mammals, and harming local fishing economies around San Francisco Bay. Demand the State of California take action and fund bay recovery.

Stop Selling Wild Animals as Family Pets

Live animal markets and auctions throughout Texas legally sell wild animals to unqualified buyers. Demand the sale of wildlife at these events is banned and help protect animals from the exotic pet trade.

Stop Recreational Hunting, Trapping, and Terrorizing of Big Cats

An attempt to ban the recreational hunting of mountain lions, bobcats, and Canada lynx failed, leaving these species at risk. It’s time to take a stand. Demand Colorado protect thousands of beautiful cats from being trapped, poisoned, and slaughtered.

Banish Agonizing Bow and Arrow Assaults Against Wildlife

Bears and other animals are being subjected to horrific injuries and slow, painful deaths because of bow hunting. Urge a state where this gross practice freely thrives to put a clamp on the cruelty.

Protect Giraffes From Poachers Before it’s Too Late

Giraffe populations have declined by an estimated 35% over the past three decades, but officials still refuse to grant these animals the protection they deserve. Demand efforts to restore giraffes before it is too late.
