Release Morgan back into the wild

On the 23rd of June 2010, a young orca named Morgan was found swimming near the Netherlands with deteriorating health. The Dolfinarium Harderwijk got a permit to bring Morgan to a healthy state and release her, but unfortunately she was never released and is currently still held in captivity. I stumbled upon Morgan’s sad story [...]

Ban the tiger trade in China

Thanks to a retweet I saw the other day, a petition from Tiger Time was brought to my attention and now I share it with you. Please sign this petition to help put an end to the tiger trade in China. I’ve written about the devastation that tigers suffer multiple times here on FLC and [...]

Act now to protect the Amazon

I know I’ve mentioned the Amazon rainforest on here multiple times, but to say it is important to our world is an understatement. “The Amazon is the world’s largest tract of tropical rainforest, containing the Earth’s greatest biological reservoir – around 30 percent of all terrestrial species are found there.” (Source: BBC) And that’s not [...]

Stop the cruel killing of street dogs in Ukraine‏

[UPDATE: Remember those poor dogs in the Ukraine?] In an effort to “rid the streets of [stray dogs] in time for the Euro 2012 soccer championships” in Ukraine, dogs are being poisoned to death. “Meat laced with poison is being left out for the animals to consume, resulting in their prolonged and agonizing deaths.” There [...]

Sign to keep grizzly bears in Yellowstone safe

I was so pleased to see that the majority of you that voted in the poll said that you take action on these types of posts! I was thinking that only those who comment and maybe a handful of others signed, but seeing the results of the poll leaning mostly one way made me realize [...]

Save whales (and yourself) from commercial whaling

Something that stood out to me when I first watched Sea Shepherd‘s Whale Wars was that they called themselves an environmental organization, not an animal rights/welfare group. This was one of the few times I saw someone other than myself claim to be helping more than just animals, but the environment and people, too. Not [...]

Say no to ivory (aka killing elephants for their tusks)

The truth of the matter is, without anyone to buy ivory, elephants wouldn’t be killed for their tusks. When I was a child, I’d see jewelry made out of this material called “ivory” which was mostly something people bought as souvenirs. I had no idea elephants and rhinos had to die for it. There’s nothing [...]

Save the Amazon rainforest & stop murder

Did you know that environmental activists are being killed in Brazil for protecting the Amazon rainforest? I was distraught about a month ago when I read about married couple Jose Claudio Ribeiro and Maria Do Espirito Santo Da Silva getting shot and killed for protesting against loggers. They were ambushed by gunmen. This was no [...]

8hours

Animal welfare organization Naturewatch has started a petition with German investigative group Animals’ Angels to put an eight-hour limit on live export journeys in the EU. Right now it is legal for animals to be transported for many day under horrific conditions. Many animals get stuck for hours on end, injured, trampled, or killed during [...]

Ban live exports of Australian animals

[Update: Australia suspends live exports!] Yesterday when I got on Twitter, I noticed something different. Twitter has trends that are the most popular phrases, words, topics, people, etc. that are most tweeted about in the world or the area you’ve got selected. One of the worldwide trends listed was “#banliveexport” which I knew right away [...]
