A neighbor literally cut Blacky the dog alive

 

Protect Animals like Blacky the Dog in Mauritius!

 

 

Sign Now

 

 

 

It was the night before Christmas Eve. All was supposed to be peaceful in Triolet, Mauritius. But that’s the night that a man named Nikhil decided to pull out a sword and cut up his neighbor’s dogs, Blacky and Dipsy.

It’s time for Mauritius to stop animal abusers and adopt stricter laws. Tell the government to prosecute Nikhil and others who hurt animals!

Blacky and his brother each underwent surgery for more than four hours. Veterinarians reported that Blacky had „large, deep and open spinal and leg injuries, [his] upper respiratory tract perforated and maxilla was fractured in assorted points.“ The front of his muzzle was cut open, too, with a large slice running up his face.

Animal lovers in Mauritius are outraged. Will you join them in demanding stricter laws to punish animal cruelty?

Thank you for all that you do,

TIRN Comes to the Aid of Cold Stunned Sea Turtles

 
 

 

 
Friend,

This past week on the Texas coast, water temperatures dipped below 50 degrees and affected over 2,000 endangered sea turtles. Sea turtles that are „cold stunned“ may try and reach the surface to be warmed by the sun but our air temperature was below freezing.

Cold stunned turtles become very lethargic and are more susceptible to boat strikes, predators and even death from exposure.

This has become the largest cold stunning event ever recorded on the Texas coast, and we’re expecting another cold front this weekend.

Please donate to help our dedicated staff, volunteers, and me rescue these vulnerable sea turtles.

We’re working together with state agencies, environmental organizations and volunteers to rescue cold stunned sea turtles. This has been an amazing and exhausting effort by many.

When the sea turtles are brought in from our bays, they are placed in bins and holding tanks in rescue centers where they are processed and monitored. When they have recovered and water temperatures return to normal, they can be released.

Our team in Galveston, Texas has been working throughout the weekend to help with this major cold stunning event, and we have processed the turtles by weighing, measuring, tagging and documenting them.

Please consider donating to help our staff assist in the sea turtle rescues.

Thank you,

Joanie Steinhaus, Gulf of Mexico Program Director

Elephants don’t deserve this

 

Thailand: Ban Elephant Rides

 

 

Sign Now

 

 

 

brigitte,

How would you like to haul humans on your back through the jungle?

We can only imagine the pain and discomfort elephants endure, wrapped in straps and chains that attach big bulky chairs to their bodies while people climb on for a ride. Many elephants in Thailand are expected to work for parks offering an exciting „adventure“ to tourists. These poor animals are often treated cruelly and overworked.

Elephants aren’t entertainment and these elephants parks must be closed.

These parks are not only inhumane, but they are dangerous to animals and people alike. Just recently, a scared elephant trampled and killed a guide after its tail had been yanked by a tourist. Incidents like this will continue to happen until Thailand bands these types of parks altogether.

If you agree, then please add your name to this petition. Urge the Kingdom of Thailand to put an end to elephant ride parks for good.

Thank you,

    Alex B.

McDonald’s

täglich verbraucht McDonald’s viele Millionen Plastik-Strohhalme — während immer mehr Schildkröten, Vögel und andere Meerestiere am Plastikmüll in unseren Ozeanen verenden.

McDonald’s will bei den Olympischen Winterspielen 2018 als verantwortungsvoller Sponsor glänzen — ein perfekter Zeitpunkt, dem Fast-Food-Riesen einzuheizen.

Mehr als 300.000 SumOfUs-Mitglieder fordern McDonald’s bereits auf, den Strohhalmen eine Absage zu erteilen. Machen auch Sie mit?
Ja! Auch ich fordere McDonald’s auf, Plastik-Strohhalme aus dem Verkehr zu ziehen.
Vielen Dank für Ihre Unterstützung!
Wiebke, Rebecca und das SumOfUs-Team


Hier noch einmal unsere ursprüngliche E-Mail:
Plastik-Strohhalme vermüllen unsere Ozeane und werden für Meeresbewohner zur tödlichen Falle. Trotzdem verkauft McDonald’s sie täglich millionenfach.

Rufen Sie McDonald’s jetzt auf, Plastik-Strohhalme abzuschaffen!
PETITION UNTERZEICHNEN

Brigitte,
jeden Tag verbraucht McDonald’s Millionen von Plastik-Strohhalmen. Kundinnen und Kunden nutzen sie nur kurz, dann landen sie im Müll — und später häufig in unseren Meeren.

Dort verstopfen sie die Atemwege von Schildkröten, landen in den Mägen von Seevögeln und am Ende sogar in unserer Nahrungskette, weil sie von Fischen gefressen werden.
Wenn wir McDonald’s davon überzeugen auf Plastik-Strohhalme zu verzichten, können wir unsere Ozeane und Meeresbewohnern vor Millionen von gefährlichen Plastikteilchen schützen.

Fordern Sie McDonald’s auf, auf Plastik-Strohhalme zu verzichten!
Plastik-Strohhalme machen einen großen Teil der mehr als sechs Millionen Tonnen Plastikmüll aus, die jährlich in unseren Meeren landen.
Das Fatale an Plastik: Es belastet die Meere über hunderte von Jahren — mit tödlichen Folgen für seine Bewohner.
Meerestiere verheddern sich im Plastik und ertrinken oder verhungern, weil Plastikteilchen ihren Verdauungstrakt verstopfen.
Wissenschaftler schätzen, dass jedes Jahr mindestens 1 Million Seevögel und 100.000 Meerestiere — wie Meeresschildkröten — an den Folgen der Plastikflut sterben.
Wir haben keine Wahl: Um unser Ökosystem zu retten, müssen wir die Plastikpest stoppen!
McDonald’s tut gerade alles, um sich ein umweltfreundliches Image zu verpassen — unsere Chance, den Fastfood-Riesen davon zu überzeugen, Verantwortung zu übernehmen.

Fordern Sie von McDonald’s, seine Plastik-Strohhalme aus dem Verkehr zu ziehen!
Schon einmal haben wir McDonald’s zum Umdenken gebracht: SumOfUs-Mitglieder haben den Konzern dazu bewegt, auf 100% verantwortungsvoll produziertes Palmöl umzustellen. Machen wir jetzt Druck, damit McDonald’s jetzt auch beim Thema Plastik nachhaltig handelt!

Vielen Dank für Ihre Unterstützung!
Wiebke, Tricia, Oliver und das Team von SumOfUs

Fleisch

Liebe Freundinnen und Freunde,

jedes Jahr werden 56 Milliarden Tiere in dunkle, dreckige Käfige gepfercht und geschlachtet — nur um unseren Fleischkonsum zu befriedigen.

Es ist grausam und es könnten noch Jahre vergehen, bis der Massentierhaltung ein Ende gesetzt wird. Doch eines können wir heute tun, um das zu beschleunigen: weniger Fleisch essen.

Es gibt 46 Millionen Avaazer rund um die Welt. Wenn jeder von uns beschließt, auch nur einen Tag in der Woche kein Fleisch zu essen, und dann Freunde, Prominente und viele Unternehmen zum Mitmachen bewegt, könnten wir den größten globalen Vorsatz aller Zeiten ins Leben rufen. Auch Vegetarier und Veganer können dazu beitragen!

Zeigen wir, dass die Tage der Massentierhaltung gezählt sind, und fangen wir an, dieser Grausamkeit ein Ende zu bereiten.

Ich mache mit und werde weniger Fleisch essen!
Ich bin schon Vegetarier/Veganer oder esse schon weniger Fleisch!

Unser Fleischverzehr fördert nicht nur die massenhafte Tierquälerei, sondern schadet auch dem Planeten! Die Viehzucht trägt weltweit mehr zur Erderwärmung bei als alle Autos, Flugzeuge und Busse zusammen. Auf 75 Prozent unserer Ackerflächen wird Tierfutter angebaut. Es ist völlig maßlos!

Wir müssen nicht alle von heute auf morgen Vegetarier werden. Doch Experten sagen, weniger Fleisch zu essen sei das Beste was wir tun können, um eine Umweltkatastrophe abzuwenden.

Langsam kommen die Dinge ins Rollen. Doch mit einem riesigen Vorsatz könnte unsere Bewegung jetzt von Indien über Brasilien und die USA bis nach Europa einen weltweiten Trend entfachen, um den Fleischkonsum drastisch zu senken und irgendwann diese fürchterlichen Massenbetriebe zu schließen. Machen wir heute alle einen kleinen Schritt in diese Richtung:

Ich mache mit und werde weniger Fleisch essen!
Ich bin schon Vegetarier/Veganer oder esse schon weniger Fleisch!
Viele waren der Meinung, dass unsere Abhängigkeit von fossilen Brennstoffen unumkehrbar sei. Doch dann haben wir uns zahlreich zusammengetan, unsere Gewohnheiten geändert und unsere Regierungen zum Handeln aufgefordert. Und es tat sich etwas. Schließen wir uns noch einmal zusammen, um diese Grausamkeit zu stoppen und unseren Planeten zu schützen. Hand in Hand.

Mit ganz viel Liebe und Hoffnung für 2018

Danny, Allison, Marigona, Nataliya, Lisa und das ganze Avaaz-Team

Put Cheetahs on the Endangered Species List

Sign Now

 

 

 

They can run, but they can’t hide. The majority of the dwindling cheetah population — now as low as 3,577 — lives on unprotected lands where they risk becoming targets of farmers who view them as a threat to their livelihood.

The fastest land animal on Earth just can’t seem to escape man’s grasp. A recent study suggests that cheetahs have disappeared from more than 90% of their original territory. Now, the remaining cats need our help to survive.

Scientists are calling on the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUNC) to up-list the cheetah from vulnerable to endangered on the Red List of Threatened Species. It’s the IUNC’s job to protect endangered species.

Endangered status means more attention and funding for conservation efforts. Increasing the cheetah’s listing is the only way the cat will have a fighting chance at survival.

Please show your support for cheetah conservation by signing the petition to the IUNC demanding endangered status for the cheetah today.

Thank you,
