Have you seen Blackfish, the movie that’s making waves?

I hope this movie makes history. Right now, it’s looking like it’s on its way to doing just that. I haven’t posted in a while, but I recently watched Blackfish and remembered why I started Four Leaf Clover in the first place. This documentary shows a little background history as to how killer whales got [...]

Losing Nemo: what’s happening to our oceans

This short film from The Black Fish organization highlights the shocking truth about what is happening to our oceans right this minute. Greenderella posted this video and I had to pass it on.

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.

This has been going on for years, my brother recently informed [...]

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 [...]

Are you unknowingly supporting rainforest destruction?

With most negative things in this world, the main reason they’re still around is because people just aren’t knowledgeable about the consequences. According to the Rainforest Action Network (RAN), “palm oil is in roughly 50% of packaged goods sold on grocery store shelves” and “the expansion of palm oil plantations is one of the biggest [...]
