Donate to help stop Japanese whaling. Despite an International Court of Justice ruling and against the process of the International Whaling Commission, the Japanese fleet has returned from Antarctica having killed 333 minke whales: 155 males and 178 females.

Re-home Some Hens. Home » Re-home Some Hens We find caring homes for thousands of commercial laying hens destined for slaughter each year and have hen collection points all over the country.

Re-home Some Hens

To find the one nearest to you just click here. It is an Animal & Plant Health Agency requirement that all hens are traceable and therefore we require full contact details of re-homers. We do not make a charge for the hens or their adoption, but we ask for a donation to cover what we pay the farmers, vet fees, fuel, phone bills, trailers, equipment and feed as well as supporting our ongoing and very successful campaign work for a free range future.

Current status. Vaquita Captive Breeding Statement. ©Todd Pusser/All rights reserved The issue of possible live-captures and ex-situ conservation (generally known as captive breeding) of the vaquita has recently been much talked about and debated.

Vaquita Captive Breeding Statement

This results from the 2016 CIRVA report, which for the first time, recommended evaluation of the prospects and steps needed for captive breeding of the species, as part of the conservation plan.

Injuries, abortions, trauma and death are the common results of wild horse round-ups (or “gathers,” to use a placating euphemism).

Read Wild Horses the Stress of Captivity, a report by Dr. Bruce Nock. The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) claims a mortality rate of 0.5% in connection with captures. The agency is able to claim such a low mortality rate because it attributes to natural causes most injuries/deaths sustained during round-ups (e.g., Paymaster, NV, 2006: although 21 horses were euthanized on site, BLM claimed a zero mortality rate for the round-up). Few deaths are ever deemed by officials a “result” of the removal operations, and injury statistics are simply omitted. The Case for Phasing Out Experiments on Primates - Ethics of Medical Research... Whether they realize it or not, most stakeholders in the debate about using animals for research agree on the common goal of seeking an end to research that causes animals harm.[1] The central issues in the controversy are about how much effort should be devoted to that goal and when we might reasonably expect to achieve it.

The Case for Phasing Out Experiments on Primates - Ethics of Medical Research...

Some progress has already been made: The number of animals used for research is about half what it was in the 1970s, and biomedical research has reached the point where we can reasonably begin to envision a time when it could advance without causing harm to animals. With some effort and aggressive development of new biomedical research technologies, full replacement of animals in harmful research is within our grasp. The goal will not be reached all at once, however, and phasing out invasive research on all nonhuman primates should be the priority. Approximately 70,000 nonhuman primates are used for research in the United States each year, according to the U.S.

Do Cosmetic Companies Still Test on Live Animals? Dear EarthTalk: Is the “Draize Test” using live animals still used to test cosmetics?

Do Cosmetic Companies Still Test on Live Animals?

-- Jim M., Bridgeport, CT The Draize Test was devised back in 1944 by U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) toxicologist John H. Draize to evaluate the risks of normal short-term exposure to new cosmetics and other personal care products. Still used today by some companies, the test involves applying a small amount of the substance under study to an animal’s eye or skin for several hours, and then observing whether or not irritation occurs over the following week or two.

Animal Experiments

Each year inside British laboratories, nearly 4 million animals are experimented on. Every 8 seconds, one animal dies. Cats, dogs, rats, mice, guinea pigs, rabbits, primates and other animals are used to test new products, to study human disease and in the development of new drugs. They are even used in warfare experiments. Factoryfarming.org. Humane Society International : Humane Society International. Iprescue. International Primate Protection League ~ IPPL.
