ANiMAL PETiTiONS CORNER by Alicia of WoodsEdge

by Alicia of WoodsEdge

1. Tell the Government Not to Poison 16,000 Prairie Dogs

Prairie dogs in Wyoming's Thunder Basin National Grassland are being threatened by the U.S. Forest Service's plan to poison colonies located within a quarter-mile of private or state land. Not only is the plan expected to kill 16,000 prairie dogs, but it poses a risk to other native wildlife. 

Send the Forest Service a letter telling them to reject this cruel and misguided plan. 


2. Tell the National Aquarium to Shut Down Its Dolphin Exhibit

Officials from the National Aquarium in Baltimore recently announced it was considering shutting down its dolphin exhibit in favor of building a first of its kind sanctuary for its eight residents. The announcement is good news for dolphins and a sign that the industry is moving in step with our growing knowledge of the complexity of cetaceans and addressing the ethical questions being raised about keeping them in captivity.

The aquarium is currently seeking public input about potential new plans. Please sign the petition urging the aquarium to shut down its exhibit in favor of more suitable habitat for its residents. 


Share your thoughts directly with the aquarium here:


3. Tell the USDA to Protect Baby Wild Animals

Animal welfare organizations are urging the USDA to ban direct contact with wild animals in an effort to protect them and the public. Even though baby animals are cute, they're often dumped after they grow too large to safely handle. 

Please sign the petition asking the USDA to amend the Animal Welfare Act to end public contact with wild animals.
