1. Tell Russia to Set Captured Belugas Free
A few years ago 18 beluga whales were captured at the behest of the Georgia Aquarium. However, this month the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration denied the aquarium's application for a permit to import them into the U.S. for display. Now their advocates are worried they'll be sold to the highest bidder from a country that doesn't have protections for marine mammals.
Please sign the petition urging the Russian Department of Fisheries to allow a team of scientists to assess their health and rehabilitate them for release those who are fit back into the wild.
2. Help Cats at Washington University
What looked like a victory this June when a spokesman confirmed that the university would no longer be using cats to teach students how to perform tracheal intubation in its Pediatrics Advanced Life Support (PALS) course, turns out to be nothing more than deception. The school will still be using cats and ferrets to teach pediatric residents.
Please sign the petition urging the university to end the practice of using live animals once and for all.
3. Help Carriage Horses in Utah
The collapse of a carriage horse named Jerry in Salt Lake City this past weekend has stirred up the debate around this industry and led to renewed calls for a ban. Jerry was suffering from colic and some believe the temperature, which reached 97 degrees that day, added to his distress.
City officials admit things may need to change and are looking into issues with carriage horses, but won't commit to doing anything just yet.
Please sign the petition urging the city to get horses off city streets.
ON BEHALF OF
THANK YOU !
