Dear Mark — Founder ‘Serbian Animals Voice’,


Cecil the lion’s six-year-old son, Xanda, has been killed almost exactly on the second anniversary of his own death, which caused international outcry over the cruelty of trophy hunting.

Just like Cecil, Xanda, a young father himself, was lured away from the safety of a national park in Zimbabwe. Also like Cecil, Xanda was wearing a research collar and was an important part of a long-term study on lions.

Killing Cecil and Xanda shows a shocking display of disrespect for these imperiled animals and the unnecessary killing of these majestic creatures just for bragging rights and a head-hunting exercise.



The tide is turning against trophy hunting around the world as a result of Cecil’s death—and the killing of his son will only add to that momentum.

Please sign our pledge to take a stand against this senseless cruelty.

Can we rely on President Trump to be a voice of the USA against this trophy hunting ? – NO; he supports the hunting and killing of any beautiful animal by sons ‘dim and dimmer’.

Netting and Plastic – When It Is Not Disposed Of Properly – Death To Innocent Wildlife.

Breaking 16/7/17

SAV Comment – What fantastic news ! – biodegradable 6 pack can rings that breaks down in the water AND then can be used a food for turtles etc – Superb !

 

Now it is a case of getting the word out for others to follow this super approach to marine conservation.

 

A Brewery Has Created Biodegradable 6-Pack Rings That Will Feed Marine Life Instead Of Killing Them:

Most of these plastic six-pack rings end up in our oceans and pose a serious threat to wildlife. Together with Saltwater Brewery, a small craft beer brand in Florida whose primary target are surfers fishermen and people who love the sea, we decided to tackle the issue head on and make a statement for the whole beer industry to follow.

We ideated, designed, prototyped and manufactured Edible Six Pack Rings.

A six-pack packaging design that instead of killing animals, feeds them.

 ———————————————————————————-

So think, and take the bloody stuff home with you.  Dispose of it correctly – Do not simply dump in the sea or on the beach !

Cut plastic can holders so they can never become trapped around the bodies of young turtles when out at sea, deforming them as they grow.   See some pictures below which shows what happens when they are NOT CUT in all places.

I was diving in the Malaysian’s water off Pulau Tioman. My buddy spotted this drift-net with a trapped turtle. After photographing it, we call all the other divers in to cut up the nets and disposed it when we get back on land. The net measured up to about 30m in length. Sad to say the turtle did not make it.

 

 

 

Serbia: Azra Has A Cancer, But Needs Funds To Sort It – Please Help – See Below.

 

PLEASE read the story about Azra, so heartbreaking.  Azra doesn’t deserve this, so PLEASE anyone who might help her to continue the therapy, do it!

We have to win this battle together!

SHARE EVERYONE PLEASE!

The Story

This is Azra, the beautiful girl whose ‘owner’ obviously does not care too much about her because he allowed her to come to this situation, and the situation is following: the carcinoma of the vagina whose type we still do not know because it requires a departure to vet clinic in Belgrade, after the suggestions of the veterinarians in Bor where Azra lives, and the pathohistology has to be done.

What the veterinarian suggests is a quality surgery of an experienced surgeon, which again requires a visit to Belgrade, and for which there is no money.

Jovan Joja Cvetkovic took over the dog as soon as he found out about her, since ‘the owner’  does not want to do anything about her, moreover, after  her cancer appeared he completely abandoned her and left her on her own.

I am asking you  that we all together help Joja and AZRA  to win this battle, not to give up on her without even trying. At least we owe it to Azra and him. By going to Belgrade and hopefully being operated, Azra has already begun receiving therapy in Bor with cytostatics, which costs a lot.

HELP for paying the treatment and Azra’s departure to Belgrade and eventual surgeries is more than welcome!

It is going to be hard and expensive according to vet, but AZRA deserves to live!

THANK YOU!

England: Act Now To Support The Campaign To CLOSE DOWN Hogwood Pig Farm.

Hogwood Farm Update

h

Watch the vigil for pigs at Hogwood Farm

Dear Mark

Our petition to close down Hogwood Farm needs your help. With over 19,000 signatures so far, we’ve made some great progress – but we need more if we’re going to succeed in getting it closed down.

On Monday, Viva! founder & director Juliet Gellatley was joined by 60 people for a peaceful vigil outside the Warwickshire farm where horrendous conditions were filmed by Viva! Campaigns.

The investigation and vigil have been covered in national and local media, leading to growing condemnation and public support. Juliet repeated her calls for the farm to be shut down. If you haven’t already, please sign the petition to make the authorities take action!

After the vigil, Juliet made a grisly discovery of dumped pig remains in a wood near the farm, on land belonging to the owner. We have reported this to the authorities and are demanding that they take action to stop this practice.

What can you do to help?
We need your support to help us end this war on animals. Thank you to all everyone who has signed the petition so far. If you haven’t signed yet, we desperately need you to help us end this suffering. Please sign the petition now and help us save the pigs at this horror farm.

Plastic Straws Are Killing Sea Wildlife – Take Action To Help Stop It Now.

 

https://www.google.co.uk/search?hl=en&site=imghp&tbm=isch&source=hp&biw=1213&bih=591&q=plastic+straws+turtles&oq=plastic+straws+turtles&gs_l=img.3..0i24k1.1662.9473.0.9946.23.23.0.0.0.0.220.3986.0j20j2.22.0….0…1.1.64.img..1.22.3977.0..0j35i39k1j0i8i30k1.Ds4isRIXG5M 

Mark,

McDonald’s uses a staggering 3.5 million plastic straws every single day — and that’s just in the UK. Used for a few seconds, then thrown away, many end up polluting our oceans.

Small, light, and hard to avoid, it’s no wonder plastic straws dumped into the sea get stuck in sea turtles’ nostrils, lodged in the stomachs of baby seabirds, and end up in our food chain after being eaten by fish.

Just recently a UK based pub chain stopped routinely giving out plastic straws — but its 100,000 straws per month is a drop in the ocean compared to McDonald’s 3.5 million a day habit.

Just image what a difference 3.5 million straws a day out of circulation would make to our oceans and the animals that live in them.

 

 

Tell McDonald’s to stop using plastic straws that pollute our oceans today.

Plastic pollution is one of the biggest threats to our oceans, and straws are one of the most common plastic items found in beach cleanups, according to Greenpeace.

A total of 8 million tonnes of plastic ends up in our seas every year — that’s the equivalent to five shopping bags of waste on every foot of coastline in the world! And as a result it is estimated that every year a million seabirds and 100,000 marine animals — such as sea turtles — die.

Plastic doesn’t degrade, but is broken up into ever smaller pieces. So if that straw isn’t swallowed whole by a large bird or turtle the bits it breaks into can be eaten by fish or fed to chicks starving to death with stomachs full of plastic.

Taking 3.5 million plastic straws per day out of use would be a major step towards cleaning up our seas and protecting wildlife from this plastic menace.

 

Take action now, tell McDonald’s to stop using plastic straws that pollute our oceans.

We’ve faced huge and powerful corporate players before, and we know that when SumOfUs members like you stand up for what’s right, together we can force them to change. After all we’ve done it before.

We’ve forced McDonald’s — along with companies like Starbucks, and KFC — to commit to sourcing 100% responsible palm oil. When we expose the ugly side of corporate giants — like McDonald’s — they take action to protect their brand. And in doing so we score a massive victory for our planet.

 

Take action now, tell McDonald’s to stop using plastic straws that pollute our oceans.

Thanks for all that you do,

Tricia, Sondhya and the team at SumOfUs

5 Facts That You Should Know About Bear Bile Farming.

Click here to see more photographs of this disgusting animal abuse:

https://www.animalsasia.org/us/media/news/news-archive/five-things-you-need-to-know-about-bear-bile-farming.html?t=1&cn=ZmxleGlibGVfcmVjcw%3D%3D&iid=0682a4f3cd514a3f9fafe86cc5174c4d&uid=3003466684&nid=244+272699400

 

1. Bear bile does have medicinal uses but there are cruelty-free alternatives

Bear bile has been used in traditional Asian medicine for thousands of years. It contains high levels of ursodeoxycholic acid (UDCA) known to be useful for treating liver and gall bladder conditions. However, there are now many readily available herbal and synthetic alternatives with the same medicinal properties. Traditional medicine practitioners agree, nobody’s health will suffer due to a lack of bear bile.

In the past bear bile would be obtained by hunting bears in the wild and killing them to remove their gall bladder. It would have been a particularly rare and prized ingredient at the time used sparingly for specific medical conditions. In the 1980s however, bear bile farming began to be practiced as a way of constantly extracting bile for the duration of a bear’s life. Today more than 12,000 bears are believed to be kept on bear bile farms in China and Vietnam

 

2. Extracting bile from bears is as cruel and painful as you would imagine

The extraction of bear bile from live bears causes unimaginable suffering and long term health problems for these physically and psychologically damaged animals.

A number of techniques exist, all of which are particularly gruesome. While the techniques vary between Vietnam and China, each involves bears being kept in tiny cages. Extraction methods range from “free drip” where the bear suffers a hole in their gall bladder, to the insertion of permanent catheters.

Crush cages and bears locked into metal jackets have now been made illegal in China – but are likely to still be used in poorer farms. Bears literally grow up in tiny cages to the point where their bodies have contorted to fit the bars. Most have few teeth left due to literally trying to chew their way out

In China some farms have breeding programmes, but also rely on these being added to by poaching bears from the wild. Many bears can be caged as cubs and never released, suffering up to 30 years of continuous torture by bile extraction.

Most farmed bears however are starved, dehydrated and suffer from multiple diseases and malignant tumours that ultimately kill them.

 

3. The Chinese people don’t want bear bile farming

A 2011 poll by Animals Asia found that a staggering 87% of Chinese people interviewed disagree with the cruel practice of bear bile farming

The medical community too is shunning bear bile farming, with thousands of pharmacies recently pledging never to stock bile products as part of Animals Asia’s Healing Without Harm programme.

This year the owners of Nanning Bear Bile Farm asked us to take over and convert it into a sanctuary.  They were in agreement that the industry must end – because, in their words, bear bile farming is both cruel and hopeless.

Meanwhile Kai Bao, the biggest single buyer of bear bile, recently announced they were pursuing research into bear bile alternatives with government backing.  The suggestion remains that the market is reducing.

 

4. It’s still legal in China but not in Vietnam

Unfortunately, bear bile farming is still completely legal in China – albeit with regulations aimed at curbing the worst cruelty of the industry.  Regulations that are circumvented or ignored time and again – so far, with no prosecutions being made.

In Vietnam, bear bile farming has been technically illegal since 1992, but it wasn’t until 2005 that species-specific legislation was introduced banning the exploitation of these endangered animals. Sadly, bear bile farming persists in the country due to legal loopholes as well as the fact that demand still exists.

 5. We won’t stop fighting until bear bile farming is ended for good

Since being set up in 1998 Animals Asia has continuously campaigned to end bear bile farming in China and Vietnam. Thanks to the staunch support of people all over the world, we have been able to take bear bile farming from a dark secret to an international outrage. We have rescued more than 500 bears in Vietnam and China from the cruelty of bear bile farms and are absolutely committed to ending this cruel trade.

But we can’t do it alone. We need your help and the help of everyone you know to condemn this barbaric industry to the history books. So please, tell your friends, share this article and support our work. Together we can end the cruelty.
