1. Speak Up for the Bonneville Sea Lions
On March 15, Idaho, Oregon and Washington were authorized to kill up to 92 sea lions from the Bonneville Dam simply because they eat salmon. Plans were approved even though there has been an increase of salmon in the area and sea lions account for only a 1-4% loss.
Sign the petition asking the organizations in charge to reverse their plans and use resources to find an alternative that will benefit all wildlife involved.
2. Tell the EPA to Stop Lead Poisoning
According to the Center for Biological Diversity more than 3,000 tons of lead are shot into the wild every year, along with an estimated half a million lead sinkers that are lose by fisherman, posing a poisonous threat to wildlife and humans.
Sign the petition telling the EPA to stop the use of toxic lead for hunting and fishing.
3. Support the Pet Safety and Protection Act
In February, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) announced plans to phase out Class B dealers (random source animal brokers) for federally funded research, but pets who could wind up in labs still need help. The Pet Safety and Protection Act would put these dealers out of business, ensuring pets who end up in shelters get the second chance they deserve.
Sign the petition telling Congress to support this legislation to help keep pets safe.
