weekly Animal Petitions Corner

Presented by Alicia of WoodsEdge

1. Help Save Blue Whales

With an estimated population of 10,000, down from 400,000, the future of the blue whale could be considered threatened. Every summer, they migrate to the coast of Southern California, along a major shipping route. Collisions with cargo ships severely injure and kill blue whales.

Sign the petition asking California Senator Barbara Boxer to create legislation that would require cargo ships to find alternate routes to whale habitat during migration.


2. Support Shelter Reform in Nevada

There’s a story going around about a 5-month old puppy who was killed for no reason, other than the Lied Animal Shelter decided to euthanize her…just because they could. Word about her story went out. Rescues, foster homes and potential adopters all came forward to try and help this puppy, who has since been named Phoenix, and pay for medical care, but their efforts fell on deaf ears.

Sign the petition supporting a no-kill Las Vegas, supporting shelter reform and legislation that will prevent shelters from killing animals that rescues are willing to pull.


3. Tell CITES Thailand to Crack Down on Illegal Wildlife Sales

In Bangkok, there is a market that openly sells protected wildlife, despite being right down the street from the CITES office, which is supposedly working to stop exactly that.

Sign the petition asking CITES officials to do they’re jobs and close down these shops.
