Mark,

A new report is shining a spotlight on some of the most ruthless destruction of elephant habitat we’ve ever seen. And the massive forest clearance is linked to the suppliers of snack foods sold by companies like PepsiCo across the world.

Watch and share the shocking footage revealing how the world’s biggest snack food companies are linked to rainforest destruction.

A field investigation by our partners at Rainforest Action Network uncovered the devastating clearance of already endangered forests in the Leuser Ecosystem. The only place on earth where elephants, tigers, orangutans and rhinos live in the same forest, Leuser is considered one of the world’s top priority conservation areas. It’s also the source of drinking water and livelihoods for millions of people in the Indonesian province of Aceh.

But Leuser’s critical importance is apparently of no concern to rogue palm oil producer PT. ABN. The company has been illegally — and rapidly — turning lowland forests into palm oil plantations despite being ordered out by the Indonesian government. So who has been buying PT. ABN’s conflict palm oil? Wilmar palm oil refineries, supplier of brands like PepsiCo, McDonald’s, and Nestlé.

We can’t let mega-corporations like PepsiCo, Nestle, Unilever, Procter & Gamble, and McDonald’s sweep the destruction of this priceless ecosystem under the rug.

Share the video to shine a global spotlight on this destruction. Let’s make our voices heard and save the Leuser Ecosystem — before it’s too late.

Thanks for all that you do,
Fatah and the team at SumOfUs

Serbia: Loznica Friday 24/2 – The Current Last Rescue – LOZNICA: ENTERING THE DOORS OF HELL AGAIN.

LOZNICA: ENTERING THE DOORS OF HELL AGAIN
A DOG… A HEART BEAT AT OUR FEET

The hardest and most painful thing for any rescuer is to leave a dog pound with saved dogs and look into the eyes of the ones who are left behind.

They know. They know their fate. Their end is coming…  Your heart aches, you can’t stop dreaming about them during night, you can’t sleep, flashes come into your mind of their imploring eyes, paws on your legs, and then immense sadness when the pound door is closed and you leave….

 

 loz1-feb

We can’t forget so many babies and we are begging you for your help again: we want to save more lives. The dog too scared to move for fear of being beaten, the little dog brushing round our ankles just desperately trying to get us to notice her.

So many precious beating hearts begging to be noticed and taken out. Almost as if they’re promising us they will be “such a good dog if we rescue them”. A silent promise.

 

loz2-feb

 

We really are their last hope on Friday.

We will re-visit this living hell to save more gentle dogs.

THIS REALLY WILL BE OUR LAST RESCUE FOR SOME TIME until we can home some dogs.

 

loz3-feb

Those left unsaved will spend their last moments on earth terrified and often in agonizing pain. Euthanasia if conducted, is not conducted in a civilized way – but by the cheapest means possible which involves immense brutality.

 

 loz4-feb

 

These sweet lives can’t cry for help, but we can. And we have to! Only their eyes tell us their pain and need. Give them this final chance of life! Help us free the prisoners of one of the worst Serbian dog pound we have ever seen.
ONLY YOU CAN HELP US TO DO THIS

USA: He reportedly struck a zebra with a 3-foot-long stick “with such force that the zebra fell to his front knees and then fell over sideways.”

unst0001

Garden Bros. Circus, featuring an elephant act by Carson & Barnes Circus, is on tour in the South this month, and we need to tell venues that plan to host the show why that’s the worst idea ever:

Carson & Barnes’ head trainer was caught attacking and electro-shocking elephants as they screamed in pain.

A whistleblower reported that Zachary Garden, the manager of Garden Bros., beat animals regularly and denied them food and adequate veterinary care.

He reportedly struck a zebra with a 3-foot-long stick “with such force that the zebra fell to his front knees and then fell over sideways.”

Tell the venues to consider these facts carefully and to require that the scheduled performances of this cruel circus go forward without animals.

India: Investigation Reveals Chicks Suffocated, Burned, Ground Up Or Drowned.

inda0001

WARNING – EXTREME ANIMAL SUFFERING IN VIDEO.

 

The latest breaking eyewitness investigation, released by PETA India and Anonymous for Animal Rights, of major chicken farms that raise and slaughter chickens for their eggs and meat, found widespread, rampant cruelty to chicks. 

As you can see in this shocking video footage, it is clear that the egg and meat industries are focused on maximising profits at the chicks’ expense and that they consider living, feeling, thinking birds to be mere commodities. From problems in incubators that cause organ deformities to invasive methods of sex determination and using burning-hot blades to de beak them, the lives of newly hatched chicks are filled with agony and end in a premature death – suffocated, burned, ground up alive, or drowned. These sensitive baby birds are treated like trash – literally. Some are even tossed, live, into waste bins to die. 

Baby chicks need your help.

The best thing that you can do for baby chicks is to refuse to eat eggs and chicken meat. By reducing that demand, we can spare them this horrific suffering.

Together, we can make a difference for these tiny suffering animals. All you have to do is take action by going vegan today

 

 

Animals Starving and Freezing To Death In Mongolia.

 

Mongolia 2017

Dear Mark,

I am following up on an email I sent you recently, about a crisis in Mongolia.

After an unprecedented winter last year, animals continue to struggle as this year winter arrived two months earlier than expected.

Right now animals are not only suffering to withstand temperatures much colder than usual, but they are having trouble breaking through the snow to find food, and are starving.

Now that we are in February, temperatures are brutal and these animals need us now more than ever.

World Animal Protection is on the ground providing aid and nutrients to the households that own these animals, but we need help. I’m afraid time is running out for these poor animals. 

Please considering donating a gift to help the animals of Mongolia, and others around the world, who desperately need our help. Thank you for caring, and for being a friend to animals when they need you most. 

Thank you

UK: Victory For HSBC Campaign – Speaking Up For Primates !

uk

Hi Mark,

Our old campaign link:

 

https://serbiananimalsvoice.com/2017/02/02/hsbc-boss-tells-the-world-they-are-protecting-forests-action-mail-him-and-tell-him-he-is-wrong/

We did it.

HSBC have just announced that they’ll stop funding palm oil companies that destroy the rainforest. [1]

you-did-it-1you-did-it-2

 

hsbc-destruction-indonesia

Whether you signed the petition, donated, or badgered them online, you made this happen – and it’s not everyday you topple a bank! [2]

We should feel pretty powerful today – and that’s why

it’s probably not the time to rest on our laurels. HSBC isn’t the only bank that’s been putting orangutan habitat at risk. If right now, we make HSBC’s decision as public as possible, we can show just how easy – and what good PR – it would be for other banks to do the same.

 

Please will you chip in a few pounds for an advert in the Financial Times demanding change from banks like Standard Chartered? If we use our momentum right now to win over other banks, people across South East Asia will be safer and swathes more rainforest could be saved. [3] 

HSBC are the biggest bank in Europe, which is why we went straight for them. At first they told us they weren’t doing anything wrong, then that palm oil funding is too “complex” for them to clean up. But after just a few weeks of campaigning, they backed down.

If a bank as big as HSBC can do it, other banks are going to find it hard to make excuses. But right now, they think nobody knows what they’re up to – this ad will change that.

140,000 of us in the UK joined the campaign against HSBC.

Take a minute to picture 140,000 individuals all over the UK who you haven’t met. It’s pretty amazing that you were part of a team that beat one of the biggest banks in the world. You’ve done a lot. But if each of you can chip in £1 today, we can make sure this victory reverberates around the banking sector and creates exciting, long lasting change. Let’s get this ad in the paper next week!

Thanks for standing up for people and primates,

India.

Greenpeace: HSBC promises to cut ties with forest-trashing palm oil companies.
[2] 140,000 of us in the UK signed the petition, thousands of us wrote on HSBC’s Facebook page and even more tweeted, called and even wrote to the bank. This was all in just 5 weeks. Here’s a blog about how the boss of HSBC ended up being grilled on the campaign at Davos.
