Soi Dog Foundation - Sponsor A Dog or Cat Today See this turtle's miraculous recovery after getting caught in a piece of litter. When it comes to prioritizing environmental concerns, curbing litter isn't exactly at the top of the list. After all, when there are much bigger dangers like harmful emissions, overfishing, and climate change to worry about, how much harm are a few pieces of plastic on the ground really going to do? Just splitting a sixer of Strawberry Crush with my bros. What's the worst that could happen? But there's one turtle that would staunchly disagree with that mindset (or, at least he would if he could talk). Meet Peanut. The red-eared slider was found wandering the St. Peanut re-creating the fateful incident. Even after his rescuers snipped the plastic rings off, Peanut's shell was forever deformed into a figure-8, peanut-y shape (hence his name). These impairments made Peanut an easy target for predators, which meant he was unable to be released back into the wild. Today, Peanut has a home and a job with the State of Missouri. Peanut is ready for his close-up. Peanut rockin' out.

Cancer de la vessie : demandons des stocks sur les médicaments connus et efficaces ! Le cancer de la vessie (carcinome vésical) occupe en France la 5 ème place des cancers. Les tumeurs de la vessie n'infiltrant pas le muscle (TVNIM) représentent 80% de ces cancers. Ce cancer se guérit par lavage de la vessie avec le BCG intravésical (bacille de Calmette et Guérin), qui agit par immunothérapie. En 2008, ce BCG a guéri mon mari. Mais, à ce jour, le traitement est « en arrêt de commercialisation » en France et « en rupture de stock » à l'étranger. Depuis 2012, cette problématique est connue par l'ANSM (Agence nationale de la sécurité du médicament et des produits de santé) et l'Association Française d'urologie (AFU) Le « Temporairement » dure depuis 2012 ! Pourquoi les laboratoires français ne produisent plus ce produit connu pour son efficacité et remboursé à 100 % par la Sécurité Sociale ? Merci de nous faire connaître votre action pour que le protocole de soins des cancers de la vessie non infiltrant soit complet.

(111) Saint Francis Wolf Sanctuary Navdanya Pétition en faveur de Serge Atlaoui : tous contre la peine de mort ! Serge, 43 years old, married with three children residing in the Netherlands is a welder and business owner who used to work regularly abroad in several foreign countries. A little over two years ago, a Dutch friend offered to put him in touch with an Indonesian employer which offered to pay him 2000 euros (undeclared). This work involved the installation of various industrial machines for an acrylic factory. Serge, who at the time, had a few financial problems, agrees. Unfortunately, the production of acrylic was a cover. November 11, 2005, after a raid by Special Forces from the Indonesian police, Serge was arrested and imprisoned for organisation and drug trafficking. Yes, Serge installed tanks, pumps, and machinery intended to be distilled in a factory producing acrylic. Yes, he prepared this material knowing thereafter and too late, the objective of the tests. Serge, following the sentence, appealed the decision. He is not a part of this organization. Let us unite for Serge Atlaoui!

Wolf and Wildlife Studies - wolf research on Montana's Fishtrap pack emphasizing wolf behavior, wolf howling, wolf territory, wolf management, and the production of a wolf howling CD. Australia I can't stop thinking about this seal pup Dear ARIANR, This year's seal slaughter is well underway, and my heart sank when we captured this on our camera. A lone seal pup sleeping peacefully, oblivious to the sealing boat approaching her. The pup raises her head and checks her surroundings, unaware of the danger she's in. A shot rings out and a bullet hits her. The sealer finishes her off with a bash from a club and drags her across the ice back to the boat. Help us stop this. Thank you so much for helping animals. Sincerely, Rebecca AldworthExecutive DirectorHumane Society International/Canada
