ANiMAL PETiTiONS CORNER by Alicia of WoodsEdge

Presented by Alicia of WoodsEdge

1. Support the Retirement of All Research Chimpanzees

This week, a group of experts advised the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to permanently retire more than 300 government-owned research chimps to a sanctuary, but also recommended leaving 50 behind to use in experiments. 

Please send a letter to NIH Director Francis Collins asking that all government-owned research chimps be retired to a sanctuary where they can live out their days in peace. 


2. Help Protect Animals in Massachusetts

The legislative session has started in Massachusetts and animal advocates are working to pass bills that will protect dogs and cats from irresponsible breeders, end extreme confinement for farm animals and crack down on illegal hunting to protect wildlife. 

Please send a letter to state representatives asking them to support these important bills for animals. 


3. Support Expanding California's Sanctuaries for Wildlife

The Cordell Bank National Marine Sanctuary and Gulf of the Farallones National Marine Sanctuary off the California coastline are home to a number of species from whales to coral and sit near an area that provides nutrient rich food they need to survive. 

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) announced it would consider a proposal to double the size of these two sanctuaries, which will protect the them from drilling and other destructive activities. 

Please sign the petition supporting the expansion of these two sanctuaries.
