Online Community for the defense of animals
You'll find a list of some of the many improvements for animals in general which they have helped achieve in the last few months below...
Stopping the Seal Hunt... many achievements, including that the United Kingdom is now spearheading a drive towards a European ban on import and trade in all seal products.
Defending Our Oceans... Whales and their protectors were well served at this year’s meeting of the International Whaling Commission, where the moratorium on commercial whaling was reaffirmed and further threats to whales were defeated.
Protecting Cats and Dogs... The European Parliament has voted unanimously to ban cat and dog fur from being imported or exported into Europe. A new law in the Philippines will not only protect people and animals from deadly rabies, but also put an end to the dog meat trade and strengthen animal welfare standards.
Standing Up for Endangered Species... Representatives from 170 countries met to decide the fate of many of the world's wild species subject to the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES) - they agreed to a number of animal-friendly moves.
And Better Treatment for Farm Animals... further progress was achieved on this issue too!
