ANiMAL PETiTiONS CORNER by Alicia of WoodsEdge

by Alicia of WoodsEdge

1. Tell Congress to Ban Wild Animals in Traveling Circuses

Last week Rep. Jim Moran reintroduced legislation that would ban the use of wild and exotic animals in traveling circuses for good. Research, undercover investigations and news reports have exposed not only the problems inherent with keeping animals in circus environments, but also the heartbreaking and violent abuses they're exposed to behind the scenes. 

Please sign and share the petition asking your representative to support and co-sponsor the Traveling Exotic Animal Protection Act. 


2. Protect Whales and Dolphins From Sound Bombs

A plan to open waters on the East Coast to seismic surveys will put thousands of marine mammals and endangered species at risk at risk of injury and death. The Bureau of Ocean Energy Management will harm up to 138,500 marine mammals and disrupt their activities more than 13.5 million times over the next eight years. 

Please sign the petition asking the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management to keep seismic testing out of the Atlantic. 


3. Help List the UK's Animal Testing Secrecy Clause

Animal advocates are working to lift the veil of secrecy that shrouds animal experiments in the UK. Last week the government finally launched a public consultation seeking input on the repeal of Section 24, which has kept what experimenters are doing out of the public eye. 

Please sign the petition urging the government to repeal this clause and support transparency in research.
