Highly Controversial Federal Action Puts Manatees in Harm’s Way

Highly Controversial Federal Action Puts Manatees in Harm’s Way the (CORRUPT) U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service (FWS) issued its final rule to downgrade the status of the West Indian manatee from endangered to threatened under the federal Endangered Species Act. The rule affects both the Florida and Antillean subspecies and was pursued despite strong scientific and legal evidence that shows the downlisting of manatees is not warranted at this time. The FWS decision leaves manatees and their habitat exposed to attacks and could ultimately preclude the species' recovery.

THANKS TO THE SOCIOPATHIC KOCH BROTHERS (PLF) AND OTHERS WHO VALUE PROFITS OVER PEOPLE + PLANET, YOU HAVE DONE PRETYY BANG UP JOB DESTROYING THE ENIVRONMENT, BUTCHERING HELPLESS ANIMALS, AND CORRUPTING THIS NATIONS GOVERNMENTAL SYSTEMS (W/AN OBVIOUS SPECIAL AFFINITY SHOWN TOWARD FLORIDA'S LEGISLATURE & YOUR BASTARD BUDDY SCOTT). YOU ARE ALL SOULESS POS, UNWORTHY OF THE AIR YOU BREATHE, ETHICALLY BANKRUPTED, BOTTOM FEEDING MURDERERS.


I do not usually go off with such nasties but for f*cks sake people! These evil people, sociopathic special interest and corrupt corporations are KILLING life on our planet right in front of us! To suggest it is anything less than a WAR is a grave mistake, and one which will allow for the continuation of extinctions of life on Earth as we now know it.


AN ONGOING ECOCIDE, THE INSIDIOUS WAR ON ANIMALS IS A WAR AGAINST ALL OF HUMANITY!

DFO Opens Commercial Seal Hunt Early, Removes Limited Protection for Mothers and Nursing Pups | IFAW - International Fund for Animal Welfare


DFO Opens Commercial Seal Hunt Early, Removes Limited Protection for Mothers and Nursing Pups | IFAW - International Fund for Animal Welfare


Seals are dying in Canada’s commercial seal hunt, and this year could be particularly gruesome.
FACT: 98% of seals killed in the past few years were between three weeks and three months – too young and slow to escape.
DFO Opens Commercial Seal Hunt Early, Removes Limited Protection for Mothers andThat’s because the Government of Canada rolled back protections for the youngest seal pups and their mothers by opening the slaughter early – before the newborn pups had finished nursing. This interruption during the critical birthing period means mother seals nursing their young may have been killed, and their pups would have been left to fend for themselves. Tragically, many of them are just too young, and would likely starve to death.

FACT: Seals don’t always die when they’re shot or beaten. Sometimes an injured seal will escape, only to die a slow and painful death. They’re called the “struck and lost.” The struck and lost are one of the cruelest aspects of the hunt. But the truth is, it’s simply impossible for any of this hunt to be humane.
So much cruelty, and for what? Can you believe that many of the pelts sit in a warehouse because there’s no buyer for them? FACT: Sealers have admitted to dumping thousands of seal pelts into the ocean because they didn’t have a market to sell them to! And after decades of government attempts to create a market for seal meat, 92% of the meat from the commercial harp seal hunt is still wasted.


ALL OF THE BARBARIC BUTCHERY BEING INFLICTED AGAINST EARTH'S ANIMALS IS DESTROYING OUR OWN HUMANITY. NO ONE HAS A RIGHT TO BE CRUEL, IT'S NOTHING SHORT OF A BIOLOGICAL DEFECT TO BELIEVE ANYONE PERSON OR ANY GROUP OF PEOPLES IS SOMEHOW ENTITLTLED TO SUCH. Human beings have no right to designate other fellow Earthlings as being mere 'things', as though life on our planet exists for us to use, abuse and/or otherwise disrespectfully consume as we choose. Animals, humans and/or nonhumans are not f*cking commodity products!


END HUMAN SUPREMACY NOW! If we continue to allow this corrupted ideology to determine our social values, it will eventually destroy us but it will be of our own, collective choice, our own doing. What is far more unjust is how our choosing ignorance, indifference, greed & gluttony will concurrently & systematically cause pain, suffering and extinction to so many of the beautiful creatures of Earth.

WE ARE SUPPOSED TO CARE ABOUT NATURE! Humanity is part of nature, we can not (and will not) exist without it... at least, not in a way other than us becoming 'farmed' ourselves (ex. how we "grow" animals). We are not supposed to be OK with ecocide nor genocide. We should feel a moral obligation to want to protect the vulnerable lives among us, those who have no choice, we are supposed to be their voice.


So unless we are OK with the masses be turned into a collective species of sociopaths, serial killers, mindless over-consuming suicidal idiots, WE MUST CHANGE! STOP THE WAR AGAINST ANIMALS & LIFE ON OUR PLANET & WE WILL SAVE OURSELVES

What if we gave universal income to people in biodiversity hotpots? | Environment | The Guardian

What if we gave universal income to people in biodiversity hotpots? | Environment | The Guardian  Human nature isn’t driving mass extinction – as some have argued – but our acceptance of capitalism is, according to English Professor Ashley Dawson with the City University of New York whose recent book, Extinction: A Radical History, lays out the case how our current global economic system is pushing Earth ever closer to a mass extinction event.


Capitalism as species-eater:  Around 500 years ago, Europeans brought about the invention of modern day capitalism, a system that was rooted in colonialism, slavery and environmental destruction, according to Dawson.

“Capitalism is an economic system founded on ceaseless expansion,” Dawson, who specializes in Postcolonial studies, said. “It must grow at a compound rate or it will experience convulsive economic and social crises. The contradictions of this system are patently self-evident: an economic system based on infinite expansion must inevitably crash into the natural limits of finite ecosystems.”

EXPOSED - USDA's Secret War on Wildlife




3 former federal agents & a Congressman blow the whistle on WILDLIFE SERVICES--a barbaric, wasteful & misnamed agency within the USDA most Americans have never heard of--& expose the government's secret WAR ON WILDLIFE on the taxpayer's dime. Wildlife Services has been having their way for almost a century, KILLING MILLIONS OF WILD ANMALS yearly, as well as maiming, poisoning & brutalizing countless pets. They've also seriously harmed more than a few humans. Learn more & support our efforts to end America's war on wildlife at http://www.predatordefense.org/exposed. PLEASE SHARE!

2017 Synoptic Survey Count - What this means for the manatees

 
The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission recently came out with a synoptic survey count of 6,620 manatees in Florida. See a video from Dr. Katie Tripp, Director of Science and Conservation for Save the Manatee Club, discussing the survey count and what it means for manatees.
