Save the Florida Bears and the Panthers and the Manatees

Save the Florida Bears and the Panthers and the Manatees Bookmark and Share

We've spoken up before, and they won't listen. Last year the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) approved a statewide hunt to kill Florida's black bears, despite overwhelming resistance from the public. Now they're getting ready to do it again.
We will fight to stop the Florida bear hunt this summer, but in the long term we must work to place a constitutional amendment on the ballot to stop the FWC from allowing the slaughter of our black bears -- or any other species currently or formerly listed on the Endangered Species Act -- without the public's consent. Join with me to support a ballot initiative to protect Florida's wildlife from the commission charged with their protection.

Petition: Ban Orangutan Boxing for Entertainment
Target: Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha of Thailand

In Thailand, orangutans are being forced in the boxing ring to fight one another for human entertainment. The animals are dressed in boxing gear and placed in a ring to resemble a boxing match with each other. Animal lovers are in awe and appalled at such an exploitation of animals for the amusement of humans. Since 2005, over 22,000 apes have been sold, killed while being hunted or died in captivity as a part of the illegal trade of primates that still continues to this day. 
Huge profits are made selling illegally captured primates to zoos and other attractions around the world . Winners are awarded food and other rewards but ultimately both primates return to the dark cells where they are illegally kept. It is time to stop this disgusting display of animal brutality; orangutan boxing certainly stands as the most shameful symptom of the illegal primate trade. Orangutans are highly intelligent and sensitive animals and share 97 percent of their DNA with humans.

Orangutans do not belong in a ring where they are dressed up and made to fight- they are not boxing because they want to, they’re boxing because they’re afraid not to.
