Quick, Easy Actions: Keep Wolves from Losing Protection; Stop Horse Slaughter; Save Elephant “Lucky” from San Antonio Zoo


 Easy actions!  Please do them all!!  If you don’t, you’re just plain lazy…


“In a shocking move, the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA) reportedly approved a request by the San Antonio Zoo to keep a 53-year-old female Asian elephant named Lucky in isolation. Lucky is now the only solitary female elephant in an AZA-accredited zoo in the U.S. The zoo's director told the media that Lucky will remain at the zoo until she dies. The zoo's other elephant, Queenie, died in March.
No elephant should ever be held in solitary confinement. Female elephants are profoundly social - they live in matriarchal, multi-generational herds in the wild that include sisters, aunts, nieces, and nephews.”


When Wolves Lose Endangered Species Act Protection, We Lose Wolves! https://secure2.convio.net/ida/site/Advocacy?pagename=homepage&page=UserAction&id=2445&autologin=true

“The United States Fish and Wildlife Services (USFWS) has announced a plan to delist all wolves throughout the United States (except Mexican wolves) who are currently protected by the Endangered Species Act. This reckless and politically motivated plan will intensify the ongoing slaughter of wolves. We have already seen tragedy in western states where hateful anti-wolf rhetoric and politics trump ethics and science.
When wolves lost their ESA protection in Montana, Idaho and Wyoming, these states immediately began to allow a recreational slaughter. Wolves are being injured and killed by bow hunters, gunned down by trophy hunters, tortured by trappers in steel-jaw foothold traps and snares, and subjected to other brutal "management" methods, including aerial gunning. More than 1,100 wolves have been killed in these states since Congress took ESA protection away from them in 2011.”


Urge your U.S. Senators and Representative to support the Safeguard American Food Exports (SAFE) Act, which would ban horse slaughter domestically and outlaw the transport of horses abroad for the purpose of slaughter for human consumption - https://secure2.convio.net/ida/site/Advocacy?pagename=homepage&page=UserAction&id=2392&autologin=true

“More than 100,000 horses are exported every year from the U.S. to Canada and Mexico for slaughter. U.S. residents only, urge your U.S. Senators and Representative to support the Safeguard American Food Exports (SAFE) Act, which would ban horse slaughter domestically and outlaw the transport of horses abroad for the purpose of slaughter for human consumption. This important piece of legislation is languishing in committee. Legislators need to hear how important the SAFE Act is to you.”
