1. Tell Alabama Not to End Rehab for Certain Species
Alabama's Department of Conservation and Natural Resources notified rehabilitation facilities and individual rehabilitators that it would no longer be issuing permits for foxes, skunks, bats, coyotes, opossums, raccoons or wild pigs. The agency is instructing people who find injured and orphaned wild animals of these species to take them somewhere to have them immediately euthanized and has instructed rehabbers to turn people away, or take animals in and destroy them.
Please sign and share the petition telling the department not to criminalize compassion and overturn this decision immediately.
2. Be One of the 60,600 Who Stand Up for Orangutans
The Rainforest Action Network is going after the 20 biggest companies that are responsible for putting Conflict Palm Oil in our food with its new Snack Food 20 Campaign. According to the organization, only 60,600 orangutans are left in the wilds of Sumatra and Borneo who continue to be threatened by rainforest destruction due to the rising demand for palm oil. RAN is now trying to get 60,600 humans to stand up for them.
Please send a letter to these companies asking them to ensure that they are sourcing palm oil from responsible producers who don't contribute to deforestation.
3. Help Endangered Albatrosses
According to the National Audubon Society, of the 22 species of albatrosses, 19 are threatened with extinction and more than half of the petrel species are endangered. Unfortunately, they continue to face threats posed by fishing lines, which they can become tangled in.
Please sign the petition asking the U.S. Senate to support legislation that will implement measures to help save these birds.
