Anti-Environmental Poison Pill Riders. Two Political Trainwrecks in the Making.

Anti-Environmental Poison Pill Riders

And they’re off! Last week, the House and Senate Appropriations Committees finished work on their respective versions of the federal spending bill that funds the Department of the Interior, the EPA and the U.S. Forest Service. Both bills are loaded with ideological riders that would block or eliminate protections for our air, water, climate, public health, endangered species, forests and other public lands. A rider is a provision that either makes a change in law directly or, more commonly, prohibits an agency from using its funds to carry out specific duties under a law or rule. The House Appropriations Committee imbedded nearly 40 anti-environmental riders into its spending bill before it was voted out of the committee on June 15. The Senate Appropriations Committee passed its spending bill on June 16.

Squiver News - Marsel van Oosten and Daniella Sibbing

We no longer have to go through Kodiak and lose valuable days; we can offer you direct flights from Anchorage or Soldotna to Lake Clark. This amazing trip will bring you extremely close to wild brown bears, as we photograph them in their natural surroundings, with a rugged backdrop of mountains and glaciers, wild rivers and creeks. We will be staying in a very comfortable lodge, booked exclusively for our group. It is located in Lake Clark, in the middle of over four million acres of wilderness. We offer you outstanding photographic opportunities to view the earth’s largest carnivore, roaming the wildest and most untouched habitat remaining in the world. We will take only 8 guests on this trip in September 2012, so don't hesitate and make your reservation now. L’humain, un « insoutenable » superprédateur.

3 Former Animal Rights ‘Villains’ Who Came to be Heroes for the Movement. Whether you’re working to end the suffering of animals exploited in captivity, on factory farms, or those being hunted to near extinction in the wild, all animal rights advocates have a collective mission: to help animals in need and to minimize our contribution to their suffering as much as possible.

3 Former Animal Rights ‘Villains’ Who Came to be Heroes for the Movement

Those of us who understand these issues have strong beliefs on the matters and we may find ourselves quick to judge, but it’s important we remind ourselves that not everyone is privy to animal welfare issues. In our society, using animals for entertainment, consumption, and a myriad of other uses has been normalized. As such, learning to understand how our actions may harm other creatures can be challenging. Most of us did not begin our lives on this path, as animal welfare advocates, vegans or vegetarians.

Last pangolins

While some said it was an armadillo, others were amazed to find that the character from animation series Pokemon was a real animal.

Amazing Videos on Animal Rights and Veganism. Pig Escapes Farm, Appears to “Pray” at Buddhist Temple. Website of World Wildlife Day. Stirring Photos Capture The Sad, Soulful Eyes Of Cows Headed To Slaughter. Every day in the U.S., some 100,000 cattle shuffle toward slaughter — with such volume, it's easy to forget that each animal experiences emotions as he's becoming dinner. A series of striking photos shot by the group Toronto Pig Save reminds us that cows have feelings, too. The animals stare out from holes in the truck looking scared and anxious. In some instances, the extreme cold they're exposed to forms icicles on their fur.

Cattle have been shown to possess surprising emotional capabilities and intelligence. Studies have shown that cows can form social bonds with one another, develop hierarchies and even have distinct, individual personalities.

Une population d'orque menacée d'extinction perd deux nouveaux membres - 10 décembre 2014. DRAME. Une orque a été retrouvée morte, échouée sur une plage près de Courtenay, en Colombie-Britannique (États-Unis). Et comble du malheur, cette jeune femelle de 18 ans, identifiée par les scientifiques du Center for Whales Research comme "J32", plus connue sous le nom de Rhapsodie, était sur le point de mettre au monde son premier petit.

Elle serait d'ailleurs décédée suite aux complications de la mise bas, selon les premiers éléments de l'autopsie. Un coup dur pour la population d'orques du sud de la Colombie-Britannique. Car, comme Sciences et Avenir l'expliquait dans un précédent article, cette communauté a été classée "en danger", suite à l'inquiétante baisse du nombre de ses membres. Marine Debris Deadly to Whales, Dolphins. You might think twice before tossing a piece of plastic into the garbage rather than a recycling bin when you hear how deadly marine debris, such as floating plastic, is to whales, dolphins and other sea creatures. According to a 2014 report published in the journal Marine Pollution Bulletin, ingestion of trash has been documented in 56 percent of cetacean species, with rates of ingestion as high as 31 percent in some populations. Bottlenose dolphins and various species of whales are also common victims of marine debris, with several tragic cases last year alone.

That's not surprising considering that millions of tons of plastic items end up in the oceans each day. You would think that such small objects would be harmless, but think again.

The 17-year-old won a Libby Award (short for animal liberation) from peta2, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals’s youth division.

Affolter, who splits his time between Rancho Peñasquitos and Rancho Bernardo, explains why he’s so passionate about protecting animals.

Taipei, Dec. 29 (CNA) An autopsy confirmed Monday that A He, the hippo that first jumped from a moving truck and later fell several meters, died from a torn diaphragm. Taipei Zoo, which performed the autopsy, said there is a 30-40 centimeter rupture on the right side of the hippo's diaphragm which caused a lung to slip from the chest cavity to the abdominal cavity.

A He, who belonged to a private leisure farm in Taichung, was found dead early Monday morning in a pond where it was given shelter since Saturday to recuperate from its series of injuries that started the day before. On Friday, A He jumped from a truck and broke one of its legs while being transported from a temporary shelter in Miaoli after renovations wrapped up at its enclosure at the Skyzoo recreational farm in Taichung, where it has been kept for eight years. It suffered yet another fall Saturday as it was being moved to a pond for treatment.
