ANiMAL PETiTiONS CORNER by Alicia of WoodsEdge

by Alicia of WoodsEdge

1. Help Florida Manatees Keep Their Endangered Status

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is being sued to weaken protection for Florida manatees, which could result in their being downgraded from endangered to threatened. Advocates for these gentle giants are worried that they're facing far too many threats to weaken protection. 

Please sign the petition asking the FWS to keep manatees listed as endangered. 


2. Keep Birds Safe from Collisions With Glass

An estimated 988 million birds each year are believed to be killed by collisions with buildings and are the second largest human-related cause of death for birds. Last year legislation was introduced that would require bird-safe materials and design features be incorporated into new and existing federal public buildings, which would help keep birds safe from collisions with glass, but it hasn't moved forward. 

Please send a letter to your rep asking them to support the Federal Bird-Safe Buildings Act. 


3. Tell New York to Stop Hunting and Trapping Bobcats

A new 5-year plan from NY's Department of Environmental Conservation will double the number of bobcats hunters and trappers can kill, in addition to opening up more land for them target bobcats. 

Please sign the petition asking the DEC not to cater to a special interest group that wants to kill bobcats for fun and reconsider its plan to expand hunting.
