the long journey through the ocean

Loggerhead turtles are certainly among the most wandering sea creatures.

Immediately after hatching, they begin their long journey through the ocean. Investigations from Florida showed that the turtles use the earth’s magnetic fields to orientate themselves on their journey of up to ten years.

These loggerhead sea turtles swim thousands of kilometers through the North Atlantic, float in the North Atlantic currents, only to one day return to the beach on which they were born.

 

And… we, the human animals with the so-called “highly developed” brain, do not even need ten years to destroy the oceans and its inhabitants.

Rabbits and some important facts about them

Did you know rabbit teeth never stop growing? Or that rabbits can jump up to ten feet? As well as being social and sensitive animals, rabbits are incredibly fascinating.

We’ve rounded up eleven fun facts about rabbits that you definitely didn’t know!

1. Rabbits are escape animals

Rabbits are always on the lookout. This is particularly evident from the fact that they are very cautious and behave more fearfully. For example, when rabbits are fooled by a human, they often become numb or try to free themselves by jumping uncontrollably.

2. Rabbits move as much as cats

Rabbits have the same urge to move around like cats. They need a lot of space and love to exercise in the fresh air.

3. Rabbits digest twice

Rabbits eat a special part of their excrement called appendix feces. This enables them to digest the food that is difficult to digest, such as crude fiber.

4. Rabbits are group animals

In the wild, rabbits live in large groups and have distinctive social behavior. Like us humans, they need conspecifics to be happy.

5. Rabbits defend their territory

Rabbits are very territorial and even defend their territory in a fighting manner if necessary.

6. Rabbit teeth will grow for a lifetime

Rabbit teeth never stop growing. The animals, therefore, wear off their teeth, for example by gnawing on branches. If they do not do this, the teeth may be misaligned.

7. Rabbits warn their conspecifics with knocking noises

Rabbits signal anger, discomfort, excitement, or fear by quickly so-called drumming with their hind legs on the ground. This also warns group members.

The knock is usually followed by a quick sprint at high speed in order to outrun the possible enemy and hide in a shelter.

Germany is developing into the largest animal testing laboratory in the world

Animal testing: Germany refuses to adapt to EU requirements – take action now!

Infringement proceedings are currently underway against Germany because EU requirements for the protection of animals in test laboratories have not yet been sufficiently implemented.

Eight years late, the federal government is now submitting completely inadequate draft laws, which, however, continue to ignore important animal welfare requirements.

Call on the responsible minister to remedy the deficiencies!

Brussels / Stuttgart, August 16, 2018 – breaches of contract: The EU Commission, based in Brussels, has informed six European countries about inadequacies in the national legislation on the protection of animals in the test laboratories.

Each member state had to implement the EU directive “for the protection of animals used for scientific purposes” in its laws by 2012.

However, around eight years later, the Commission still found numerous shortcomings in the national laws of Estonia, Germany, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, and Spain.

PETA Germany, together with PETA UK, has asked the responsible ministries to no longer allow experiments on animals and is starting an online petition.

8 years too late: BMEL (German Ministry of Food and Agriculture) presents draft laws! Which is also inadequate!

In the summer of 2018, the EU Commission reprimanded those six EU countries for failing to implement various legislation on the protection of animals in test laboratories – including Germany.

Up until November 10, 2012, each EU member state had the task of implementing the “Directive 2010/63 / EU on the protection of animals used for scientific purposes” in its national legislation.

Now, almost eight years (!) after the deadline was exceeded, and with EU infringement proceedings on the back of its neck, the federal government is submitting corresponding drafts.

PETA criticizes that the animal experiment requirements of the EU are therefore inadequate, but not even THESE minimum requirements are met by the national legislation in Germany and in the other warned countries.

Online petition: https://www.peta.de/eu-tierversuchsrichtlinien-petition

Please implement the EU guidelines on animal experiments with regard to animal welfare!

And I mean…What has the EU checked in these countries over these eight years?
Nothing, because Germany is the EU!
Germany can afford to break laws in the EU area without any consequences.
As in the present case.

If we didn’t have the undercover investigations of the animal rights activists of the “SOKO animal welfare association”, the criminals in LPT (Hamburg) and the Max Planck Institute in Tübingen would still practice their animal cruelty illegally but undisturbed.

Facit: In Germany, we have a so-called animal protection law which in fact says:” Nobody should inflict pain, suffering or harm on an animal without a reasonable cause”. The only question is, what should be a “reasonable reason”?

According to our experience and the video documentation, not only an economic interest is sufficient as a “reasonable reason “, but sadism and animal hatred as well.

In German laboratories, we have a great deal of illegal animal suffering because animal experiments are largely excluded from the Animal Welfare Act and therefore discovered violations of the law are not punished.

If the EU were not under pressure from the oligarchs, the Commission should normally have jailed those responsible eight years ago.

For information: According to the federal government, 2.8 million animals were used in animal experiments in 2017.

Around 740,000 of them were killed for scientific purposes without any tests on them.

Killing 740,000 living beings without testing them is not research. It is murder.
