Endangered Earth: National Lead Ban Sought, Penguins Protected

Nationwide Ban on Lead Ammo Sought to End Wildlife Poisoning

In the most significant initiative to prevent lead poisoning of wildlife in more than two decades, the Center for Biological Diversity and allies on Tuesday submitted a legal petition to ban toxic lead in hunting ammunition and fishing tackle. Every year, lead poisoning kills 10 million to 20 million birds and other animals. Animals are exposed to lead when they scavenge on carcasses shot and contaminated with lead bullet fragments or ingest lead shot pellets or lost fishing weights. Condors, eagles, swans and other animals die needless and painful deaths from lead poisoning or suffer for years from lead's debilitating effects. There are human health risks, too: Recent studies show that tiny lead fragments can infect meat in lead-shot game up to a foot and a half from the bullet wound, and some state health agencies have had to recall venison donated to feed the hungry because of lead contamination.

Our petition, filed under the Toxic Substances Control Act, asks the Environmental Protection Agency to require nontoxic ammunition for all hunting and fishing nationwide. "Over the past several decades we've wisely taken steps to get lead out of our gasoline, paint, water pipes and other sources that are dangerous to people," said Jeff Miller of the Center. "It's long past time to do something about this deadly - and preventable -- epidemic of lead poisoning in the wild."

New Gulf Estimate: Oil Spill Worst Ever of its Kind

New government documents offer some scary assessments of the Gulf oil spill. The first was word that federal scientists now estimate that 4.9 million barrels (roughly 206 million gallons) of oil leaked from the well after the April 20 explosion. That makes it the world's biggest accidental oil spill into a marine ecosystem and the worst environmental disaster in U.S. history. There was also troubling news -- released in a letter and documents by Massachusetts Rep. Edward Markey -- that the U.S. Coast Guard allowed BP to apply toxic dispersants dozens of times after a joint directive by the Coast Guard and the EPA said the chemicals should only be used in "rare" circumstances.

The Center for Biological Diversity continues its fight in the Gulf, going after the EPA for allowing dispersants to be used without ensuring the chemicals won't hurt endangered species, including sea turtles, and their habitats. One of our attorneys was also in Boise last week for a federal hearing on where hundreds of cases against BP -- including our $19 billion suit to hold BP responsible for Clean Water Act violations -- will be heard. The oil spill may not be gushing as it once was, but the important work of holding BP and the government accountable and helping heal ecosystems harmed by the oil and toxic dispersants is only just beginning.

Five Penguin Species Win Federal Protection

In response to a 2006 petition by the Center and two lawsuits filed with allies, five imperiled penguin species are now protected under the U.S. Endangered Species Act. This Monday, the Interior Department announced it will protect the Humboldt penguins of Peru and Chile -- whose populations have plummeted by 95 percent in the last century -- as well as four species from New Zealand: the yellow-eyed, white-flippered, Fiordland and erect-crested penguins.

All five penguins are jeopardized by climate change, ocean acidification and commercial fisheries that deplete their food supply. Unfortunately, the Interior Department didn't acknowledge climate change as a threat to the penguins despite the scientific evidence. Still, the protections will give these penguins an increased chance at survival.

Congress May Be in Recess, But Climate Help Needed Now

As you probably know by now, Congress failed to pass any climate legislation before its summer recess. The Center for Biological Diversity has been closely tracking each version to make sure it actually does what's needed now: reduce carbon pollution to the levels that scientists say are required to avoid the worst effects of global warming. The latest watered-down proposal -- the Kerry-Lieberman bill known as the "American Power Act" -- fell well short of science-based targets of reducing carbon in the atmosphere to 350 parts per million. In fact, the bill would have worsened the problem by offering incentives for offshore oil and gas development.

Any climate bill has to reach those carbon targets, work with existing environmental laws -- especially the Clean Air Act -- and be free of loopholes that allow polluters to delay or avoid reducing greenhouse gas emissions. When Congress resumes, it's likely to take up bills to address the Gulf oil spill. We'll be watching closely to make sure it doesn't gut the Clean Air Act in the process. The Center continues to push the EPA to fully harness the existing power of the Act to curb pollution and dramatically draw down carbon levels. The clock is ticking to save the planet from meltdown: A new federal report notes that the first half of 2010 was the hottest on record. We need your help in encouraging the Obama administration to take action. You can start by signing and spreading the word about the People's Petition to the EPA to Cap Carbon Pollution at 350 parts per million.

Mexican Wolf May Get Own Special Status

In response to a scientific petition by the Center for Biological Diversity, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service this week announced that the Mexican wolf may qualify for Endangered Species Act protection separate from other gray wolves. Listing the Mexican gray wolf on its own would not only call special attention to this unique wolf's plight, it would also require the feds to update the wolves' 1982 recovery plan, which didn't include any criteria for recovery and predated modern genetic analysis. The new plan would benefit from lessons learned from 12 years of the wolf's reintroduction into eastern Arizona and western New Mexico and provide an important new roadmap for a healthy recovery.

At last count in January, only 42 wolves -- including just two breeding pairs -- survived in the wild. "The Mexican wolf is on a trajectory to extinction," said Michael Robinson, the Center's wolf expert. "This decision breathes life into a recovery effort that has flatlined in recent years."

Center Defends Safeguards for Alaska Beluga

To help ensure the survival of one of Alaska's most imperiled species, the Center for Biological Diversity and allies this Wednesday moved to intervene in a case filed by the state to remove Endangered Species Act protections for the Cook Inlet beluga whale. Recent surveys found just 321 Cook Inlet belugas left, down from historic numbers around 1,300. Although the whales continue to be threatened by oil and gas development, ship traffic, global warming and sewage spewed into its habitat, the state of Alaska sued the National Marine Fisheries Service in June over its decision to protect the whale. Those protections were given in 2008 after two petitions and two lawsuits by Center and allies.

"While Sarah Palin may be gone, her successor is continuing the state of Alaska's irrational war on wildlife," said Rebecca Noblin, Alaska director at the Center. "Alaska should be working to protect its greatest assets -- its wilderness and wildlife -- not suing to overturn protections for endangered whales."

Check out our press release and learn more about the Cook Inlet beluga whale. Then read more in the Anchorage Daily News.




Suit Defends Nine Fish, 1,000 Rivers From Pipeline

The Center for Biological Diversity last week filed suit to challenge the Ruby pipeline, a 677-mile natural gas pipeline that would cross more than 1,000 rivers and streams in five states. Besides using more than 400 million gallons of precious water over the next few years in Wyoming, Utah, Nevada, Oregon and California, the pipeline would plow through protected "critical habitat" for nine endangered fish, including the Lahontan cutthroat trout, Warner Creek sucker, Lost River sucker and Colorado pikeminnow. And there's a possibility that the pipeline will rupture at a stream crossing, which would be an environmental disaster.
Our suit challenges the U.S. Bureau of Land Management's decision to issue rights of way on federal land for the project, as well as the Fish and Wildlife Service's review of its environmental impacts -- which didn't require enough measures to counteract the pipeline's serious environmental consequences or safety risks.

Petition to EPA: Biomass Isn't "Carbon Neutral"

Large-scale burning of biomass (i.e. trees and wood products) for energy threatens both forests and the climate because it emits as much or more carbon dioxide than coal, and forests can take decades or even centuries to pull that CO2 back out of the atmosphere after being logged. Meanwhile the industrial-scale logging needed to produce massive biomass harms forests, soils, water and wildlife. It's not rocket science, yet the Environmental Protection Agency, in its annual inventory of greenhouse gas emissions, erroneously insists on treating CO2 from biomass power plants as being carbon neutral, based on the false idea that the CO2 released when the trees are burned will later be pulled out of the sky by the new trees that grow in their place.

Citing a raft of recent scientific studies, the Center for Biological Diversity last Friday filed a petition asking the agency to correct its erroneous assumption of carbon neutrality. The EPA's error has huge ramifications because it encourages investment in industrial-scale biomass rather than cleaner energy technologies.

The Center's petition also challenges the EPA's failure to consider and respond to public input on its inventory, which was released just hours after the deadline for submitting public comments.

Feds Petitioned to Protect Kit Fox Habitat
To help the tiny, rare San Joaquin kit fox make its way toward recovery, the Center for Biological Diversity this Thursday petitioned the federal government to protect "critical habitat" for the species. Weighing in at about five pounds, this smallest member of the fox family is in dire danger from habitat destruction, coyotes, oil and gas development, pesticides and even certain solar developments that have been recently proposed for its last core habitats. Without protections for its currently occupied habitat along the edges of California's San Joaquin Valley -- plus additional areas the species needs to re-establish itself -- the fox could spiral toward extinction.

The Center has long defended the kit fox from threats like pesticides and oil and gas development in its shriveling range. Critical habitat designation should help stop that range from shrinking further and increase the odds that the fox population will grow. "The existing conservation mechanisms clearly are not working," said the Center's Ileene Anderson. "The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service now has an opportunity to provide additional safeguards and put the kit fox on the path to recovery."

Check out our press release and learn more about our campaign to save the kit fox.




Hear Audio From the Center's Latest Biodiversity Briefing -- Gulf Crisis

If you're a regular reader of Endangered Earth Online, you already know the Center for Biological Diversity has been working double time to make sure a disaster like the Gulf oil spill is never repeated -- as well as to counter the destruction that's already occurring because of it. But we've done so much work -- and already achieved so many successes -- it can be overwhelming to try to keep it all straight. Lucky for you, the Center's most recent quarterly Biodiversity Briefing, led by Executive Director Kierán Suckling, provides a comprehensive but easy-to-understand summary of all our most important actions and wins to date, from the New York Times story that first broadcast the feds' scandalous offshore-drilling mismanagement to our $19 billion lawsuit against BP for environmental damages under the Clean Water Act to our shutting down potentially catastrophic drilling off Alaska. And so much more.

Listen to a recording of part of the briefing and get more on the oil spill on our Gulf Disaster website. For information on how you can join the Center's Leadership Circle and be invited to participate in Biodiversity Briefings live when they happen, email Assistant Executive Director Sarah Bergman or call her at (520) 396-1129.

What Will It Take to Save the Arctic?

Last month a federal lawsuit brought by the Center for Biological Diversity and our allies stopped a flawed and illegal Bush-era plan to drill in the Chukchi Sea. But no matter how much evidence piles up against drilling in the Arctic, Interior Secretary Ken Salazar keeps pushing ahead. Given the disaster we've seen in the Gulf of Mexico, there's no reason to run those same terrible risks in the Arctic. The stakes are simply too high.

The inadequate and illegal Arctic drilling plan that is currently in place dramatically increases the odds of a large spill. Last week, the Canadian government produced a report finding that it would take three years to cap a blown-out well in the Arctic. The disastrous BP blowout in the Gulf of Mexico spewed an estimated 200 million gallons of oil into the ocean in just three months before it was finally stopped.

Despite all the warning signs, Secretary Salazar continues to ask the courts to allow oil companies to go forward with their Arctic drilling plans. Please join the Center in telling Secretary Salazar that the Arctic is too important to sacrifice to America's addiction to oil.

Click here to find out more and take action.



If you have trouble following the link, go to http://http://action.biologicaldiversity.org/p/dia/action/public/?action_KEY=4587.




Sample letter:

Subject: Please Don't Allow Drilling in Polar Bear Habitat

Dear Secretary Salazar,
The legal foundation for drilling in the Arctic has crumbled at your feet. Multiple courts have now found fault with the Bush-era Arctic drilling plan. At the same time, the BP disaster in the Gulf of Mexico has taught us a painful lesson about the dangers of offshore drilling and our inability to cap and contain a blown-out well.

If anything, the Arctic is even more vulnerable to an oil spill than the Gulf of Mexico. There is no technology for cleaning oil in broken ice conditions. The sea-ice environment is extremely dynamic, and the Arctic is subject to dangerous weather conditions including high winds and storms that could seriously complicate any response to an oil spill. What's more, there simply isn't the infrastructure or capacity to respond to an oil spill in the Arctic.

The Arctic Ocean is both biologically rich and extremely fragile. The Chukchi and Beaufort seas are home to America's only populations of threatened polar bears, Pacific walrus and many ice seal species. These iconic species are quickly losing their sea-ice habitat to global warming. It defies logic to open up this fragile, melting environment to dirty, industrial oil and gas development that will only add to the global warming imperiling the Arctic.

The courts have spoken loud and clear: The current offshore drilling plans for the Arctic, inherited from the Bush administration, are flawed and illegal. Please stop all Arctic oil and gas activities now, before it is too late. Thank you.

http://action.biologicaldiversity.org/p/dia/action/public/?action_KEY=4587

What Will It Take to Save the Arctic?





Here are the facts: In 2008, the Bush administration leased 2.7 million acres of prime polar bear habitat in the Chukchi Sea off Alaska to oil companies. In 2009, the Center and its allies won a huge victory in court that forced the Obama administration to throw out the nationwide drilling plan under which these controversial Chukchi leases were sold. Last month, a federal judge in Alaska stopped all oil and gas activities in the Chukchi Sea because the Bush-era environmental review was flawed and illegal. Yet Interior Secretary Ken Salazar continues to push for drilling in the Arctic.

Besides its obvious implications for our worsening addiction to dirty fossil fuels, drilling in the fragile Arctic environment poses even more direct threats to biodiversity. It has been proven time and again that where there is drilling, there will be spills. There is no technology to clean oil spills in the treacherous, icy waters of the Arctic Ocean.

One big spill in the Arctic could spell disaster for polar bears, walrus, seals and the entire ecosystem on which they depend. Even in the absence of a large spill, the current Bush-era drilling plan will lead to a huge increase in industrial traffic, pollution and noise in the Arctic Ocean this summer. For a tired, hungry polar bear on the brink, a run-in with a noisy drill ship could be the last straw.

Please tell Secretary Salazar to take a cue from the courts and throw out the drilling disaster plan for the Arctic.

Despite the illegality of the underlying plan and the dangers of offshore drilling that have been brought to light by the BP disaster in the Gulf of Mexico, Secretary Salazar continues to push for drilling in the Arctic. He has done nothing to stop BP's untested ultra-extended reach drilling project, dubbed "Liberty," in the Beaufort Sea. And last week he asked the federal court in Alaska to allow oil companies to continue seismic testing for oil prospects in the Chukchi Sea even though the court found the underlying drilling plan to be flawed and illegal.

28 November 2008: First Worldwide Fur Free Friday: Liste des Pays et Coordinateurs de l'événementSAG répond présent à l'appel de l'Anti-fur international coalition, une action internationale visant à dénoncer l'horrible cruauté infligée aux animaux à fourrure sur la planète. Les militants organiseront une démonstration à Genève, Place Longemalle de 13h00 à 17h00 les 28 et 29 Novembre. (Sous réserve d'autorisation des autorités Suisses)
Je profite du sujet Fourrure pour vous glisser la pétition sur la Traîtrise de Giorgio Armani

Un sujet personnel sur l'éco terrorisme.
Cet article est associé à un grand sondage sur le même thème :
« Êtes-vous un activiste dans l'Âme » Ce post tente à démontrer que le terme « d'éco terroriste »
n'est pas forcément conforme à la réalité.

Chronique d'une libération
Preuve si il en faut, qu'il existe de belles histoires de délivrances qui ne sont pas basé sur la haine et la destruction.

La CYBER-ACTION DE NOEL
Une opération très originale au profit des associations de protection animale.

DIVERS :

Manifestation contre les cirques utilisant des animaux.

Le Cirque Pinder termine sa tournée 2008 à Paris après avoir été pendant 6 mois la cible d'une série d'actions conduites par des défenseurs des animaux, dans différentes villes de leur itinéraire.

Pour la première fois en période de fin d'année, en plus des campagnes pour l'abolition de la fourrure et du foie gras, s'ajoute la campagne pour l'abolition des cirques avec animaux.

La plus grande fauverie itinérante de France, dirigée par le Président du Syndicat National du Cirque, a été convoquée cette année par la Justice. Une série de faits seront dévoilés au cours de la manifestation qui se tiendra devant le chapiteau,

Place du cardinal Lavigerie, Paris XII, le jour de l'ouverture du cirque, ce samedi 8 novembre 2008 à 13h30 (Porte de Charenton).

Les pratiques cruelles des cirques Bouglione et Alexis Gruss, installés à Paris, feront également l'objet de dénonciation durant la campagne.


MANIFESTATION PACIFIQUE CONTRE LA CORRIDA

Le photographe genevois, François Schaer(1967), expose à la galerie-librairie FOCALE à Nyon
"Toreros Maya" du 19 octobre au 23 novembre.
Une action est lancée contre cette vitrine publicitaire pro-corrida, qui exhibe comme un art l'une des barbaries les plus décadentes de notre époque.

« Toreros maya » a été réalisé en 2006 dans la province du Yucatan, Mexique.
François Schaer est apparemment séduit par la corrida, je cite :

« J'ai tout de suite été attiré par la poésie de la corrida de pueblo. »
« Au fil des semaines et des rencontres, je me suis mis à aimer et à respecter ces toreros mayas. »
« Sans rien dévoiler aux spectateurs de ce qui se joue à l'intérieur de ces arènes éphémères. »

Manifestation prévue le 15 novembre 2008 dés 14h à proximité de la galerie-librairie FOCALE
PLACE DU CHÂTEAU 4 CH-1260 NYON. Merci à tous de confirmer votre présence !


Je termine avec l'inutile mais symbolique vote de soutien pour le site de SAG et ses animaux.

Merci de m'avoir lu et à bientôt !

Amicalement,

Atome

MASSACRE BESTIAL d'une ponette. Nous demandons justice

URL Courte : http://8060.lapetition.be/

Destiny avait 13 ans et venait de mettre bas un poulain il y a à peine un mois. Elle a été retrouvée samedi matin 21 aout 2010 inanimée, violemment martyrisée et torturée, la face perforée de coups de fourche, et frappée par un objet rectangulaire. C 'est peut être des relations de voisinage conflictuelles qui sont à l'origine de cet acte de barbarie. Toujours est il qu'on ne peut pas fermer les yeux sur de tels agissements, et il est important, afin que ce type de comportement bestial envers les animaux ne se multiplie pas à toute occasion, de demander la poursuite de l'enquête jusqu'à ce que le coupable soit trouvé, et ensuite justice pour de tels malfaisants.

IDA Asks Federal Court To Block Nevada Wild Horse Roundup
"The BLM's policy of mass removal and stockpiling of horses was never authorized by Congress when it protected these iconic animals in 1971 as an important part of our national heritage," said IDA's attorney William Spriggs, who argued against the roundup plan in court Wednesday. IDA and wildlife biologist Craig Downer sued the BLM to block the planned roundup of 2,500 horses in Nevada, still scheduled for December 28. Terri Farley, a Nevada author whose books about wild horses target young readers, joined the lawsuit Monday.

IDA And Actress Elaine Hendrix Post Reward In Cat Cruelty Case
IDA has offered a $1,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons who duct-taped at least four cats in Tennessee and left them to die in garbage bins. The cats were left at Hawkins County’s Lakeview Convenience Center off Highway 11-W on three different occasions over the past month.
To claim the reward, anyone with information on this case should contact Detective Lieutenant Randy Collier of the Rogersville Sheriff’s Department at <423> 272-4848.
News of the cruel incidents caught the eye of IDA Board Member Elaine Hendrix, a Los Angeles-based actress who was born and raised in neighboring Hamblen County. “I am the guardian of two cats,” Ms. Hendrix said, “and I am sickened by the idea of someone duct-taping their paws together and dumping them – leaving them to die a horrifically cruel death. Particularly disturbing is the deliberation of the abuse - someone put thought and effort into their torturous actions. It’s sadistic.”
In announcing the $1,000 reward, IDA President Elliot M. Katz, a veterinarian, stated “Anybody who could be so cruel to defenseless, innocent animals is a danger to society. People who harm animals are usually just warming up.” Dr. Katz was referring to studies documenting the link between violence to non-human animals and violence to people. The FBI acknowledges that unpunished animal cruelty is a consistent predictor of future or concurrent violence to people. It is virtually guaranteed that the perpetrator of these crimes will act again.
The four cats survived thanks to employees of the recycling center, who heard their cries and found the cats in duct-taped boxes. One cat had his paws duct-taped together. While the employees now watch for taped boxes and listen for the cries of abandoned animals, it is unknown if other cats have been left at any of the county’s recycling centers to die.

Is Anybody Talking About Diet At The Climate Change Conference?
We are, along with the Veg Climate Alliance. A major societal shift to plant-based diets is essential to avoid an unprecedented global climate catastrophe.
In Copenhagen, the Alliance presented a Declaration on Meat Consumption and Climate Change, promoting a major shift toward plant-based diets. The Declaration is supported by IDA, the Danish Vegetarian Society, the Veg Climate Alliance, CopenVegan, Global Vegetarians Against Climate Change, the Nicolaas G. Pierson Foundation, Jewish Vegetarians of North America and others.
The coalition also held a Copenhagen forum on “Vegetarianism: Essential to Save the Planet?” featuring talks, videos, panel discussions, questions and answers and a sampling of vegan foods.
Click here to see the advertisement that the Alliance placed prominently in Copenhagen during the conference.
“The fate of the planet is at stake,” said Dr. Elliot M. Katz, President and Founder of IDA, “and it is essential that the urgency of dietary changes to avoid a climate disaster be part of the message resulting from the Copenhagen climate conference.”
IDA and the Veg Climate Alliance are urging consideration of numerous recent reports showing the significant role animal-based agriculture plays in causing global warming. Click here to see the flyer being distributed in Copenhagen by the Alliance.



Exposed - The Tortured Lives Of Baby Elephants In Circuses
This week, the Washington Post told the story of former Ringling Bros. elephant handler Sam Haddock, who trained baby elephants at Ringling’s Florida breeding center for 18 years. Responding to his wife’s dying wish, and a growing desire to end the violent training of baby elephants for “entertainment,” Mr. Haddock found the courage to deliver to PETA scores of shocking photographs showing handlers using ropes, chains, bullhooks and electric shock devices on baby elephants who were unnaturally torn from their mothers so they could be trained. The heartwrenching photos unequivocally demonstrate that Ringling tortures traumatized babies into performing through pain, fear and domination.
IDA has focused on the plight of baby elephants in circuses, specifically Baby Val and young Obert, who have been forced by the Carson and Barnes Circus to perform since they were less than two years old.

Lawsuit To Protect Wild Horses Continues Despite Denial Of Injunction Against Roundup
Wild horse advocates celebrated a partial victory yesterday as U.S. District Court Judge Paul L. Friedman ordered a lawsuit challenging a Bureau of Land Management roundup of thousands of wild horses in Nevada forward, but denied a preliminary injunction to stop the removal of horses, which is scheduled to begin December 28.

Judge Friedman’s 25-page decision indicates that he found merit in IDA’s argument that the BLM’s practice of stockpiling tens of thousands of horses in long-term holding facilities in the midwest is not authorized by law. Click here to read more.

New Year's Resolution - Free Queenie!
So many of you have been asking for news on Queenie, and we were hoping to end the year on a good note for her. But we will have to wait a little longer for her rescue.
You will remember that Queenie, also known as Boo, was left behind with Will Davenport in August, when her companions Jewel and Tina were taken by the USDA and brought to the San Diego Zoo – where they are receiving the care they so badly need.
The USDA filed serious charges against Davenport in October, and we expected the agency to negotiate a prompt settlement which would result in Queenie going to a sanctuary. It now appears that Davenport intends to fight the charges, and no settlement has been announced. Queenie is still in his hands, although he is not permitted to exhibit her or to move her without the USDA’s consent. No governmental authority will acknowledge responsibility for her well-being.
IDA continues to monitor the situation closely, as we have for over two years. We continue to explore all legal options for helping Queenie. And we continue work to persuade the USDA that they have both the ability and the obligation to get Queenie to safety.
It is frustrating to contact the USDA only to be rebuffed by their claim that they have no jurisdiction – but the truth is that they are Queenie’s best hope for a happy ending. The USDA can - as it has in many previous cases, including the Hawthorn elephants - reach a settlement with Davenport, who faces substantial fines and possible jail time for the violations alleged against him. Sanctuary for Queenie should be a part of that settlement.
Please, don't forget Queenie as the New Year approaches.


Make a call or send a fax for her today, and as often as you can until Queenie is rescued.
USDA Contact Information:
1> Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack:
Phone: 202 720-3631, Fax: 202-720-2166
2> Acting APHIS Administrator Kevin Shea:
Phone: 202-720-3861 Email: Kevin.A.Shea@usda.gov
Contact Congress Too!
Ask your Congressperson and Senators to contact Secretary Vilsack in support of Queenie's rescue and transfer to a sanctuary. We have yet to locate enough dedicated and effective champions in Congress. Find your federal representatives here.
Please continue to contact these officials until Queenie is safe at the PAWS sanctuary in California or The Elephant Sanctuary in Tennessee.

Los Angeles Zoo Elephant Lawsuit Proceeds
IDA applauds last week's California Supreme Court decision that assures a taxpayer lawsuit against the Los Angeles Zoo and its controversial $42 million elephant exhibit will go back to court for a full trial.
By its decision, the California Supreme Court upholds the Appellate Court decision in which the justices concluded, in part, that the "physical characteristics" of an elephant's enclosure may constitute "abusive behavior" under California state law.
"The California Supreme Court decision rightly allows the taxpayers of Los Angeles to have their day in court," said IDA campaign director Catherine Doyle. "It’s wrong for the City of Los Angeles to waste public money on an inadequate elephant display that we can't afford and in which elephants will continue to suffer and die prematurely."

Haiti Earthquake - IDA Is Prepared To Help
Haiti was struck by a major earthquake on January 12, near the capital of Port-au-Prince. IDA is on standby to help and is determining the needs on the ground.
The situation in the Western hemisphere's poorest nation is daunting. We are actively assessing how we can assist both people and animals and are still establishing contacts in Haiti. We are in touch with other animal protection organizations to determine how we can best coordinate and maximize each other's efforts.
If you have resources that might be put to use to help the animals of Haiti, or if you would like to become more involved in IDA's disaster relief efforts, please contact disasterrelief@idausa.org.
Our thoughts are with the people and animals of Haiti. We are standing by, and hope you will too. We will post updates on our blog as they become available.
We encourage our members to also support whichever humanitarian relief groups you feel most comfortable with.

IDA Releases "Top 10 Worst Zoos For Elephants" List
IDA just released our 2009 list of the Ten Worst Zoos for Elephants, which exposes the hidden suffering of elephants in zoos. In its sixth year, the list highlights how the confinement of these giants to tiny enclosures wreaks havoc on their physical and psychological health and leads to an early death for many.
The list includes zoos from all over the U.S. and, for the first time, Canada, providing revealing examples of how zoos fail to meet elephants’ needs for room to roam in a natural environment, a social network, and a climate suitable for these animals.
Last year India took the lead when it banned the holding of elephants in zoos. Authorities cited problems common to most zoos, such as lack of space, poor breeding, and the absence of any positive effect on elephant conservation. In contrast, most North American zoos remain mired in the past, denying the devastating impacts of zoo captivity on elephants, sinking hundreds of millions of dollars into woefully inadequate exhibit renovations and clinging to archaic and cruel circus-style training methods.
As a result, elephants continue to suffer deadly foot disease and arthritis, reproductive disorders, birth complications, obesity, abnormal behaviors such as aggression and repetitive rocking, and premature death. More than half of the elephants who died in zoos since 2000 did not live to age 40, dying far short of their natural life span of 60-70 years.
Since release of the Ten Worst Zoos for Elephants list earlier this week, IDA has been inundated with media calls, from sunny Honolulu to snow-covered Toronto, bringing international attention to the plight of elephants suffering in zoos.
Click here to see the full list of zoos, plus two new inductees into the Worst Zoos for Elephants Hall of Shame.
1. Write letters to the editor and post on-line comments on news stories about zoos on IDA’s Ten Worst Zoos for Elephants list. We’ve provided links to news coverage right next to the list. The more interest the media sees in a particular issue, the more likely it will be to cover it in the future.
2. If you live in one of the cities on the list and don’t see any news stories, please check the web sites for your local news, radio and print outlets. If you find a story, send it to us at zoos@idausa.org and we’ll post it.
3. If you live near one of the listed zoos and want to help the elephants, please contact IDA at zoos@idausa.org. We’ll put you in touch with others in your area and provide tips on how you can help.

Help Stop Primate Research Expansion
Oregon Health and Science University is seeking $15 million dollars from the National Institutes of Health to expand their facilities at the Oregon National Primate Research Center , at a time when world-renowned primatologist Jane Goodall and other scientists are calling for the reduction and closure of primate labs. According to OHSU's grant application, the ONPRC owns the “the largest SPF [Specific Pathogen Free] Indian rhesus macaque resource in the U.S.” and these funds would be used to “support the rapid growth of NHP [Non-Human Primate] research.”
This construction grant will not improve the lack of accountability, poor research quality and miserable living conditions at OHSU’s primate center. Additionally, a multi-million dollar grant should not be awarded to an institution which has been unmasked as a primate hell-hole by multiple whistleblowers, industry insiders, undercover abuse exposés, and USDA investigations detailing critical reports and violations of the Animal Welfare Act.

President Obama has an opportunity to enact our nation’s first-ever unified National Oceans Policy to protect, maintain and restore the health of ocean, coastal and Great Lakes ecosystems. This policy was a recommendation of both the Pew Oceans Commission and the U.S. Commission on Ocean Policy, and we’re excited to see this administration follow through with those recommendations. Right now, the President’s Ocean Policy Task Force is working on recommendations for a National Ocean Policy, and we expect those final recommendations to come out at the end of February.
Now is the time to show the President that we support this effort and encourage him to take the Task Force’s final recommendations, and issue an executive order that establishes a strong National Ocean Policy to protect, restore and maintain our oceans, coasts, and the marine life who depend on healthy oceans.

Emergency - Help The Animal Victims Of Haiti Earthquake

Haiti Earthquake
How You Can Help The Animal Victims
Since the instant news broke of the devastating earthquake that rocked Port-au-Prince, Haiti, on January 12, IDA staff have been working non-stop to assess how we can assist both people and animals on the ground. We have been in constant contact with other animal protection organizations to determine how we can best coordinate and maximize each other's efforts.
In response to a barrage of calls from IDA supporters, we rushed out an alert last week to assure you that we were as on top of the situation as possible, standing by to leap into action the moment the assessment was complete – and we asked that you standby as well.

Now we have begun to move into action – at least into the first phase. Next steps will be determined by what we find on the ground.
IDA has joined hands with a coalition of animal protection groups, called the Animal Relief Coalition of Haiti , and has already committed funds to help pay for a mobile veterinary clinic. As a member of ARCH, who is coordinating with Sociedad Dominicana para la Prevención de Crueldad a los Animales , which is based in the Dominican Republic, we are working to get an animal disaster relief team of veterinarians and animal disaster responders, food and supplies, into Haiti. Coalition team members are on the ground right now in the Dominican Republic preparing and stocking the animal emergency response clinic, while ARCH is also organizing logistics through veterinary contacts in Haiti.
Our immediate need is for your financial support to help us meet the commitment we have already made – and future needs that are certain to follow as this unprecedented tragedy continues to unfold. Numerous supplies are needed for the mobile clinic – food, water, medicine, syringes, bandages, and more.

The situation on the ground is changing by the minute, but as soon as human relief efforts have stabilized and security is in place, and depending on the needs the Coalition finds once team members reach Haiti, we will update you further on additional ways you can help IDA help the people and animals of Haiti.

Thank you for your generosity and caring in this moment of crisis.

Elliot M. Katz, President
In Defense of Animals

Update - Our Team Is On The Move

Now we are moving into action – at least into the first phase. The next steps will be determined by what we find on the ground.

IDA, as part of a coalition of animal protection organizations called the Animal Relief Coalition of Haiti (ARCH), is sending an animal disaster relief team of veterinarians and animal disaster responders, food and supplies. The team is on the ground in the Dominican Republic right now, preparing and stocking the animal emergency response clinic, which will be enroute to Haiti within 24 hours.

In Haiti, the coalition has already identified veterinary and animal care resources to deploy on ground and is securing permissions from the Haitian Ministries of Agriculture and Public Health, and working with United Nations agencies to begin our life-saving work to help animals and people. The coalition is engaging directly with the Haitian community, including local veterinarians, who themselves have been severely affected both directly - losing their loved ones - as well as loss of their livelihoods, devastated by this enormous earthquake that the U.N. calls one of the worst disasters ever encountered.

Our immediate need is for your financial support to help us meet the commitment we have already made – and future needs that are certain to follow as this unprecedented tragedy continues to unfold. Numerous supplies are needed for the mobile clinic – food, water, medicine, syringes, bandages, and more.

The situation on the ground is changing by the minute, and and depending on the needs the Coalition finds within Haiti, we will update you further on additional ways you can help IDA help the people and animals of Haiti.

Thank you for your generosity and caring in this moment of crisis.

Breaking News: IDA's Project Hope - Rescue Of Many Dogs In Progress!
IDA's Project Hope sanctuary and Mississippi Spay & Neuter are teaming up to spay and neuter scores of dogs released to IDA by a Mississippi woman. Once a breeder, she’d fallen on hard times and couldn’t feed or properly care for the dogs. IDA's Doll Stanley, pictured here with one of the dogs, led the rescue.
The woman, who had over 60 dogs, refused to abandon them when hard times hit, even remaining in a rental house with no north wall. When asked what she did in inclement weather she responded, “I wrap up and sit on the porch.”
On Friday, February 5, 20 of the dogs will be spayed. IDA and MS SPAN hope this event will bring attention to the plight of homeless and abused companion animals across Mississippi through the promotion of affordable low cost, high volume spay/neuter of animals.
Project Hope is already working to place the dogs in homes. Click here to read more, and stayed tuned for information coming soon about how you can help these dogs.

More Breaking News - Huge West Hollywood Victory For Dogs and Cats
This week, the West Hollywood, California City Council voted to ban the sale of dogs and cats acquired from puppy/kitten mills. The ordinance passed unanimously, and now pet stores in the city will only be able to display dogs and cats from shelters. Click here to see the CBS story, and click here to see the NBC story.
IDA's Bill Dyer spoke eloquently in favor of the ordinance, reminding that West Hollywood was the second city to adopt the IDA-recommended "guardian" language instead of "owner," and also noting that West Hollywood bans de-clawing of cats: "This unprecedented, historic action, in this Guardian city where the de-clawing of cats is also banned, will send a signal throughout our country for others to follow. West Hollywood will always be remembered as the city that had the foresight and compassion to first end the horrible commerce of puppy mills in our society."

Elephants Suffering In Cold Climate Zoos
This week IDA released an unprecedented survey showing that scores of elephants are held in zoos in cold climates, where frigid winter temperatures force the Earth’s largest land mammals indoors into tiny concrete cells for the vast majority of each day during the winter.
Cold weather dramatically increases the suffering that elephants already endure in zoos, where increased indoor confinement adds to the physical and psychological problems caused by lack of space and mental stimulation. These include painful and often-fatal foot disease and arthritis, and aberrant behaviors such as aggression and repetitive rocking and swaying.
Yet 31 out of 75 AZA-accredited zoos holding elephants in the U.S. and Canada are situated in cold climates, with three out of four of those zoos averaging mean temperatures below freezing for two to five consecutive months each year. For elephants, this means countless long hours spent standing on cold, hard concrete in barren and often windowless cages.
Click here to read more, and see what you can do to help.

Queenie Still Needs Your Help
You will remember that the elephant Queenie, or Boo, was left behind with abusive circus trainer Will Davenport in August as her companions Tina and Jewel were taken by the USDA and sent to the San Diego Zoo for badly needed medical care. All three elephants were victims of Davenport’s negligence and inhumane care, but the agency claimed to only have grounds for taking the two. We cannot forget the last image we have of Queenie, tied to a tree and bellowing, as the truck holding her companions pulled away, leaving her to an uncertain future.
IDA is asking the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to investigate Queenie’s health and current circumstances. Please click here to read more, and to see how you can help.


Disappointment Valley - Film Aims To Save America's Wild Horses

Il ne fait aucun doute que des catastrophes telles que ce tremblement de terre font souvent ressortir ce qu'il y a de meilleur dans le cœur des hommes.

La compassion et l'intérêt éprouvés pour notre travail de secours aux animaux en Haïti ont été immenses. Beaucoup de nos donateurs et amis nous ont contactés pour exprimer leur profonde préoccupation vis-à-vis des animaux et pour encourager notre travail. Nous accordons une réelle importance à vos commentaires et à votre soutien.

Notre équipe est en Haïti depuis quelques jours déjà, et j'ai déjà pu vous informer de nombreux aspects du travail entrepris par notre équipe, depuis nos évaluations initiales jusqu'à nos priorités en ce qui concerne les soins et l'alimentation des animaux, en passant par la façon dont notre travail peut aider Haïti à se reconstruire. Il est clair que nous sommes confrontés à d'immenses défis, et que nous serons sur place longtemps, comme c'est souvent le cas dans le cadre de notre travail de secours d'urgence.

Cette catastrophe a engendré un véritable déferlement d'émotions , les actualités sont pleines de récits de survies et d'histoires déchirantes de disparitions. L'équipe d'IFAW présente sur le terrain à Haïti nous a rapporté des récits de chiens traumatisés, se raccrochant aux personnes qui leur accordaient un peu d'attention. Vous pourrez en savoir plus sur notre blog Secours aux animaux.

IFAW et ses partenaires sont à Haïti pour aider tous les animaux : les animaux de compagnie, les animaux errants ou le bétail. S'il y a un animal en détresse, nous pouvons être présents pour l'aider.

Je ne pourrai jamais assez vous remercier de votre soutien à IFAW, que vous nous ayez envoyé un don, transmis vos encouragements, ou que vous ayez transmis nos courriels à vos proches. La tâche à laquelle est confrontée notre équipe d'intervention d'urgence est incroyablement difficile, mais elle sait qu'elle a le soutien de ces innombrables donateurs d'IFAW, ce qui l'aide énormément.

Pour en savoir plus sur notre travail en Haïti, suivez les liens situés à droite de cette page.

Merci encore pour votre soutien. Vous apportez un réel espoir aux animaux de Haïti.

Animaux domestiques

Les chats de la grande surface
Seuls deux vigiles ont reconnu leur responsabilité dans les sévices infligés aux félins du supermarché Auchan à Olivet <45>, en mars 2008. La Fondation 30 Millions d'Amis s'était constituée partie civile mais le jugement a été mis en délibéré au 18 novembre 2009.

Roka massacré à coup de sabre
Mercredi 14 octobre 2009 s'est tenu, au TGI de Brest <29>, le procès du meurtrier présumé de Roka, un dogue argentin de 6 ans. Parce que l'animal avait eu le malheur de pénétrer une fois de trop sur sa propriété, l'homme l'a massacré au sabre japonais. La Fondation 30 Millions d'Amis - partie civile au procès - regrette la clémence des réquisitions du parquet.

Un chien poignardé à Béziers
Quel vent de folie traverse l'esprit de certains ? Un jour on flambe un chien, un autre on le noie, le suivant on le poignarde... C'est malheureusement le triste sort réservé à Twit, un berger belge malinois, alors qu'il se promenait sagement avec son maître à Béziers <34>, le 26 septembre 2009. Récit.

Portes Ouvertes des 3 et 4 octobre : plus de 1000 compagnons adoptés !
Lors des journées Portes Ouvertes SPA des 3 et 4 octobre 2009, à l'occasion de la Saint-François d'Assise, le grand public a montré son attachement à la cause animale et à la SPA en répondant massivement à son appel à l'adoption.

Animaux sauvages

Coup d'envoi du boycott Europeen des produits de la peche Canadiens
Ce dimanche 4 octobre à midi, jour de la Journée mondiale des animaux, GAIA a donné le coup d'envoi du boycott européen des produits pêchés au Canada. Ce boycott veut inciter le gouvernement canadien à supprimer la chasse aux phoques. A l'occasion de ce lancement, Michel Vandenbosch, président de GAIA, a indiqué que 33 restaurants belges ont déclaré adhérer au boycott.

Plus d’une centaine d’éléphants tués chaque jour par les braconniers, 20 ans après l’interdiction de commercer l’ivoire
Malgré l’instauration de l’interdiction du commerce de l’ivoire il y a 20 ans, chaque jour, 104 éléphants sont encore abattus pour leurs défenses.[i] Ce niveau alarmant de braconnage pourrait conduire à l’extinction de l’éléphant d’Afrique sur presque l’ensemble du continent en 15 ans.

26 pays pressent l’Islande de mettre fin à sa chasse commerciale à la baleine
L’Islande est sommée de mettre un terme à sa chasse à la baleine commerciale par 26 pays signataires d’une déclaration condamnant unanimement la chasse cruelle et inutile, au cours de cette saison, de plus de 200 rorquals communs et petits rorquals, des espèces en danger.

Massacre des dauphins : l'implication de l'industrie de la captivité
Comme chaque année, la saison des massacres de dauphins a repris au Japon. Dans la baie de Taiji, d’octobre à avril, les pêcheurs chassent le cétacé pour sa viande. Mais pas seulement. Pour la première fois, One Voice a démontré, images à l’appui, que cette pêche barbare sert également à l’approvisionnement en dauphins des parcs d’attraction aquatiques.

Chasse

Deux chasseurs condamnés pour avoir tué un autour des palombes
Le 1er avril 2009, deux chasseurs/piégeurs avaient capturé dans une cage-piège un autour des palombes et, au lieu de relâcher comme il s’impose le rapace fortuitement capturé, les deux hommes l’ont tué au fusil 22 long rifle.

Trois accidents mortels en trois semaines
La chasse en France menace la sécurité publique : trois personnes ont été tuées par des chasseurs dans les trois semaines qui ont suivi l’ouverture. Les humains et les animaux blessés ou tués se compte par milliers chaque année. One Voice demande l’instauration du dimanche sans chasse pour que les amoureux de la nature puissent s’y promener en toute tranquillité.

Cirques / Zoos / Delphinariums

Le Portugal interdit l’utilisation des animaux sauvages dans les cirques
Le gouvernement portugais a interdit, le 12 octobre 2009, la détention de nombreuses espèces d’animaux sauvages dans les cirques. La Commission européenne doit soutenir les Etats membres de l’Union européenne qui, comme le Portugal et l’Autriche, ont légiféré pour mettre fin au calvaire de ces animaux. La France doit aussi prendre des mesures contre cette cruelle exploitation.

Non, les delphinariums ne participent pas à la recherche ou à la conservation des dauphins
One Voice s’élève contre les arguments fallacieux avancés par l’industrie de la captivité pour justifier la détention de dauphins et s’appuie sur de nombreuses études et enquêtes pour démontrer que l’activité des delphinariums ne permet ni une meilleure protection de l’espèce dans son milieu ni une meilleure compréhension de son mode de vie.

Divers

Nadia Fontenaille, à tire d'ailes
La dame aux oiseaux, fée des pigeons, des merles et des grives a, à son tour, pris son envol. Nadia Fontenaille, présidente et fondatrice de la Société de Protection des Oiseaux est décédée mercredi 14 octobre 2009. La Fondation 30 Millions d'Amis, qui a toujours été à ses côtés, salue la mémoire et le travail d'une femme qui a dédié sa vie aux oiseaux et se joint à la peine de ses proches

Pacha, matricule 2765
Alors que le Code Civil considère toujours nos animaux de compagnie comme un "meuble" &#150, à l'instar d'une vulgaire chaise &#150, , un chien a été décoré par le ministre de l'Intérieur de la médaille de bronze pour acte de courage et de dévouement le 7 septembre 2009, au même titre qu'un homme aurait pu l'être. Une initiative saluée par la Fondation 30 Millions d'Amis.

"Divertissements"

La lutte anti corrida s'affiche
Le Comité radicalement Anti-Corrida lance une campagne d'affichage à Marseille <13> à la veille de l'ouverture de la fiesta des Suds. Campagne à laquelle la Fondation 30 Millions d'Amis a participé.

Environnement

One Voice s’indigne d’un relâché sauvage de visons
Suite au relâché par des délinquants de visons élevés pour leur fourrure, One Voice rappelle le stress et le danger que cela représente pour des animaux élevés en captivité. Seule la fermeture des élevages permettra de mettre un terme à la torture des animaux à fourrure.

Des visons d'élevage rendus à la liberté : une fausse bonne idée ?
Des milliers de visons libérés de leur élevage en Dordogne <24> par un groupe d'individus encore non identifiés : les défenseurs de la cause animale applaudissent, 4200 visons élevés pour leur fourrure recouvrent la liberté ! Mais si cet acte a pour objectif d'attirer l'attention des médias sur la condition des animaux d'élevage pour la fourrure, des voix s'élèvent pour dénoncer les dommages qu'il occasionne sur l'environnement et remettre en cause son bien-fondé. Interrogés par la Fondation 30 Millions d'Amis, Alain Bougrain Dubourg, président de la LPO* et Michel Pascal, directeur de recherche à l'INRA**, réagissent.

Expérimentation animale

Les expérimentations sur les chimpanzés ne font pas avancer la recherche contre le cancer
Une analyse minutieuse des études publiées dans le domaine de la recherche sur le cancer démontre que les expérimentations sur les chimpanzés ne peuvent en aucun cas faire avancer la lutte contre cette maladie. Un argument de poids pour définitivement interdire la recherche invasive sur les grands singes dans le monde.

La Suisse interdit des expérimentations invasives sur des primates
Une décision du tribunal fédéral suisse vient définitivement d’interdire des expériences sur des macaques rhésus menées dans le cadre de recherches en neurosciences. Une victoire dans la lutte pour que cessent les tests sur les primates.

Fin des tests sur animaux pour les cosmétiques : le combat continue
50 millions d’euros suffiront-ils à faire émerger les méthodes substitutives pour la mise au point des cosmétiques ? Pour One Voice c’est insuffisant. Avec son label, l’association mise sur le pouvoir du citoyen-consommateur pour faire évoluer durablement les industries cosmétique et chimique.

Industrie agro-alimentaire

Charal : la vidéo qui fait scandale
C'est une enquête menée par l'association L214 qui a mis le feu aux poudres. Engagé comme commis par les abattoirs Charal, l'un des membres de cette association a rapporté des images de la mise à mort des bovins. La Fondation 30 Millions d'Amis se porte partie civile aux côtés de L214 pour non respect des articles R214-63 à R214-81 du code rural.

GAIA contre la souffrance des homards avec Crustastun
Depuis peu, Crustastun, un appareil grâce auquel les homards peuvent être tués sans souffrance, a fait son apparition sur le marché. Cette méthode est beaucoup plus humaine que celle qui consiste à les tuer en les plongeant dans l'eau bouillante.

Les chevreaux ne seront plus transportés dans des cages à poules
Le transport des chevreaux se fera désormais dans des conditions conformes à la réglementation. En 2005, un ex-éleveur de chèvres a alerté la PMAF sur les conditions dans lesquelles sont transportés les chevreaux males issus des exploitations laitières, vers les abattoirs. Traditionnellement, les chevreaux étaient collectés dans les fermes par des volaillers, et donc transportés dans des petites cages normalement destinées au transport de volailles.


• CONSERVATION DE LA NATURE avec Conservation-nature.fr



Deux nouveautés principales sur le site ce mois ci :


Un onglet "Inventaire" a été rajouté au niveau des fiches espèces. Il vous permet non seulement de voir où les espèces en photo ont été observées dernièrement, mais également de signaler vos propres observations. Après vérirication, vos données seront rajoutées sur la carte. L'objectif est de montrer au public que la biodiversité n'est pas seulement située dans les pays lointains mais peut être observée à proximité de notre d omicile. Il suffit de prendre le temps de l'observer.

Toutes les semaines nous présenterons désormais une espèce introduite présente sur le sol français. Vous serez d'où elle est originaire, pourquoi elle a été introduite et quels impacts sont occasionés sur le milieu naturel. Nous commençons par deux espèces connues de tous : le Poisson rouge et la Caulera taxifolia.

Plaisanciers : respectez la mer
Le milieu marin est un habitat particulièrement sensible, mais ce dernier abrite de plus en plus de plaisanciers. L'activité de ces derniers n'est pas sans conséquences, par conséquent il convient d'adopter quelques gestes simples pour minimiser son impact.


Gestes pour la cuisine
De nombreux petits gestes quotidiens peuvent être réalisés dans votre cuisine pour réduire votre empreinte environnementale. Ils concernent notamment vos appareils électroménagers, votre consommation d'eau, l'éclairage ou encore la cuisson des aliments.


Gestes pour la salle de bain
De nombreux petits gestes quotidiens peuvent être réalisés dans votre salle de bain pour réduire votre empreinte environnementale. Ils concernent notamment l'entretien de votre salle de bain et votre consommation d'eau.

• Conservation



Commerce des espèces menacées
Pour répondre aux menaces, la communauté internationale s’est dotée de la Convention sur le commerce international des espèces de faune et de flore sauvages menacées d’extinction, plus connue sous le nom de CITES .


Détention d'espèces protégées
La détention d'espèce protégée est soumise à une règlementation stricte. Cette dernière diffère en fonction de l'utilisation qui est faite des animaux , du nombre d'animaux détenus et des espèces concernées.


Conservation in situ
La conservation in situ est une technique de conservation de la faune et de la flore sauvages qui intervient sur le terrain dans le milieu naturel. Ce processus concerne les espèces animales ou végétales en voie d'extinction dans leur milieu naturel. Il a pour objectif soit la protection de l’habitat des espèces, soit la réduction des menaces affectant l’espèce sur l’habitat.


Conservation ex-situ
La conservation ex situ est une technique de conservation de la faune et de la flore sauvages qui intervient hors du milieu naturel. Ce processus de protection d'une espèce menacée de plante ou d’animal permet d’enlever une partie de la population de l'habitat menacé et de la placer dans un nouvel environnement, qui peut être une aire sauvage ou sous les soins de l'homme.

• Menaces



Impact des bivouacs et camping sauvage
Le camping sauvage était jusqu’à présent une solution utilisée par les randonneurs et autres pratiquants d’activités de pleine nature qui pratiquaient une activité de plusieurs jours consécutifs dans la nature. Bien que ça soit encore le cas, il faut ajouter dorénavant à ceci le recours au camping sauvage comme solution à part entière soit par soucis économique mais aussi par une volonté de se rapprocher de ka nature. Cette forme de camping n’est pourtant pas sans conséquence sur la nature, de multiples impacts en résultent.


Impact de l’escalade
La pratique des activités de pleine nature, et notamment celle de l’escalade, est en pleine progression. Or cette dernière est réalisée dans un écosystème d’une très grande fragilité, les milieux rupestres, qui abrite une faune et une flore exceptionnelle, rare et menacée. La pratique de l’escalade n’est donc pas sans conséquence pour le milieu naturel, plusieurs impacts sont recensés.


La déforestation
La déforestation est le phénomène de régression des surfaces couvertes de forêt. Elle résulte des actions de déboisement puis de défrichement, liées à l'extension des terres agricoles, d'une exploitation excessive ou anarchique de certaines essences forestières et de l'urbanisation.


ESPECE INTRODUITE : Le Poisson rouge
Présentation d'une espèce introduite très commune : le Poisson rouge . Cette espèce originaire d'Asie a été introduite pour être implantée dans les aquariums et les bassins, avant d'être jeté dans le milieu naturel par les particuliers.


ESPECE INTRODUITE : Caulerpa taxifolia
La Caulerpa taxifolia est une algue verte pérenne originaire des eaux chaudes tropicales. Une souche provenant de l’aquarium de Monaco a été introduite accidentellement en 1984 en Méditerranée où elle est devenue envahissante, et cause de multiples impacts s ur le milieu naturel.

Directive territoriale d'aménagement
La Directive Territoriale d’Aménagement est un document d’urbanisme qui exprime sur le long terme les orientations fondamentales de l’état en matière d’aménagement. Ces directives peuvent fixer, sur certaines parties du territoire, les orientations fondamentales de l'Etat en matière d'aménagement et d'équilibre entre les perspectives de développement, de protection et de mise en valeur des territoires.

Dernières nouvelles sur Haïti : Aider les animaux peut aussi aider les êtres humains

Je viens tout juste d'avoir une réunion très intéressante avec notre équipe d'intervention d'urgence et je tenais à partager avec vous certaines informations dont elle dispose sur la façon dont nos efforts de secours aux animaux peuvent également apporter une aide aux problèmes de santé que rencontrent les populations.

J'aimerais toutefois commencer par vous donner quelques nouvelles de notre projet de secours aux animaux en Haïti :




Un chien erre dans une rue de Port-au-Prince, à la recherche de nourriture. L'un des points essentiels de notre plan de secours aux animaux est de prendre en charge les chiens errants d'Haïti.
Photo © Chris Hondros/Staff - Getty Images


Le Dr. Ian Robinson et Michael Booth, membres de l'équipe de secours d'urgence, rencontreront les représentants du gouvernement haïtien dans la capitale haïtienne, Port-au-Prince.

Ian, Mike et deux représentants de WSPA, ainsi, probablement, que d'autres membres de la Coalition de secours aux animaux en Haïti présenteront nos plans destinés à soigner les animaux blessés, leur apporter nourriture et eau, et les vacciner contre des maladies mortelles. Cette équipe prévoit également de procéder à des évaluations sur le terrain, dans certaines des zones les plus sinistrées de Port-au-Prince.

Bien entendu, nous nous préparons à déployer notre hôpital vétérinaire mobile. La capitale est encore dangereuse et peu sûre, mais notre équipe se déploiera dès qu'elle pourra agir en toute sécurité.

Les efforts de secours à la population commencent se mettre en place et les organisations humanitaires apportent aux Haïtiens de la nourriture, des abris et des soins médicaux. Bien entendu, les animaux d'Haïti souffrent également et notre mission est vitale. Toutes les organisations de secours ont un rôle à jouer et il est essentiel que nous puissions travailler tous ensemble.

Les problèmes de santé animale peuvent engendrer des problèmes de santé humaine

Comme vous pouvez l'imaginer, les catastrophes telles que ce séisme s'accompagnent souvent de l'apparition de maladies, parfois transmises des animaux aux êtres humains. Ces maladies - ou parfois la crainte de ces maladies - peuvent parfois conduire à une répression sévère contre les animaux. Une menace d'épidémie de rage peut, par exemple, conduire à l'abattage de tous les chiens errants, même ceux qui ont été vaccinés.

Parmi nos recommandations au gouvernement haïtien figurent des plans de protection des animaux, et donc des populations locales :


Prise en charge des animaux errants par l'apport de nourriture et d'eau et, si nécessaire, des vaccinations qui éviteront les épidémies de rage et d'autres maladies pouvant se transmettre aux hommes.
Les animaux de ferme peuvent souffrir de maladies qui peuvent également affecter les êtres humains. Or, une grande partie de la capitale étant détruite, les animaux de ferme des communautés rurales joueront un rôle important dans le redressement de l'économie haïtienne. La prise en charge des animaux de ferme constitue donc une partie essentielle de notre plan.
Bien entendu, notre projet prévoit des soins médicaux essentiels pour les animaux blessés, ainsi que la nourriture, l'eau et les vitamines nécessaires pour renforcer leur système immunitaire.
Nous espérons que ces efforts combinés permettront à la population animale de rester en bonne santé, tout en réduisant le risque de problèmes sanitaires liés aux animaux au sein des populations locales.

Il est évident qu'aucune de ces opérations d'importance vitale n'aurait été possible sans l'incroyable générosité des nombreux donateurs d'IFAW. J'adresse mes remerciements les plus sincères à tous ceux qui ont fait un don et envoyé des messages d'encouragement à cette mission capitale.

Merci de votre soutien. Restez en alerte , nous vous enverrons bientôt d'autres nouvelles de notre mission en Haïti.


Fred O'Regan
Directeur Général d'IFAW

10358 signatures
Auteur :Bruno Tonetto Description :J'aimerais avoir un maximum de signature pour soutenir ma demande... Merci d'avance de votre aide précieuse. Bruno A l'attention de Monsieur de le Procureur de la République de l'Aisne
Monsieur Le Procureur de la République,

En mai dernier, j'ai sauvé un faon d'une mort certaine, en lui évitant de se noyer dans un ruisseau.

L'animal était très faible et voué à une mort certaine. J'ai donc décidé de le soigner.

Le faon, baptisé Bambi, est désormais apprivoisé et ne pourrait plus vivre à l'état sauvage.

Aujourd'hui, sur vos ordres, les gendarmes se sont présentés à mon domicile pour me signaler que j'avais 1 mois pour restituer l'animal.

Je vous supplie de bien vouloir réétudier mon dossier, je possède les hectares et clôtures nécessaires à son bien être, Bambi est très heureux avec ma fille et moi. Nous sommes la seule famille qu'il n'ait jamais connu.

En espérant que ma lettre saura vous émouvoir, je vous prie d'agréer, Monsieur Le Procureur de la République, l'expression de mes respectueuses salutations.

Bruno Tonetto

Grazing Halted on 250,000 Acres to Protect Trout
A judge has barred livestock grazing on more than a quarter-million acres of public land in Oregon's Malheur National Forest after legal challenges by the Center for Biological Diversity and allies aimed at protecting endangered trout. The decision prohibits the Forest Service from allowing grazing on nearly 200 miles of the John Day and Malheur rivers and their tributaries -- where endangered steelhead trout live -- until federal wildlife agencies reconsider the environmental effects the current grazing plan will have on the streams. The judge also ordered the Forest Service to continue with trout-protecting measures and monitoring along another 100 miles of streams.
The 281-mile John Day River is the second-longest undammed river in the lower 48 states and provides crucial spawning, rearing and migratory habitat for the largest naturally spawning native stock of wild salmon in Oregon's Columbia River basin. Steelhead trout -- which can reach up to 55 pounds in weight and 45 inches in length -- are threatened by a long list of dangers, from grazing and nonnative fish to water withdrawals and development.

Largest Mountaintop-removal Mine Vetoed -- Thank You
After Center for Biological Diversity supporters sent in nearly 30,000 comments against mountaintop-removal coal mining, the Environmental Protection Agency this morning made a historic decision to halt the most massive mountaintop-removal mine ever proposed for Appalachia. The permit had already been approved by the Army Corps of Engineers, but the EPA -- for the first time in history -- exercised its mining-permit veto power over the agency, ruling that the destructive project would have too many water-pollution impacts, including downstream fish kills. With mountaintop-removal mining, entire tops of mountains are blasted off to access coal deposits, after which toxic mining waste is dumped into surrounding waterways. The Spruce mine would have destroyed 2,300 acres of forest and buried nearly seven miles of streams depended on by countless wildlife species -- not to mention local human communities. Coal-field residents have been fighting the Spruce mine in West Virginia since 1998.

Mountaintop-removal coal mining has already destroyed more than 500 mountains, more than 1 million acres of hardwood forest and more than 2,000 miles of streams in Appalachia. "Today we applaud the EPA for following the law and the science and acting to protect the nation's wildlife and the citizens of Appalachia from the devastation of mountaintop removal," said Tierra Curry, Appalachia native and a biologist at the Center.

Oil-spill Commission Report Shows Need for Offshore Drilling Halt
Just hours after the national oil-spill commission released its final report on the BP disaster and the dangers of offshore drilling, the Center for Biological Diversity on Tuesday called for a stop to drilling in the Arctic and all deepwater drilling until the report's recommendations are carried out. We also called for the withdrawal of controversial Arctic leasing and deepwater drilling in the Gulf given the green light in the past month -- as the Department of the Interior scrambled to authorize projects before the anticipated report was released.
Among the dozens of critical recommendations outlined in the 398-page report were adequate preparation for an oil spill -- specifically in the Arctic, where the report said a cleanup isn't currently feasible -- as well as requirements for complete analyses of oil drilling's environmental impacts and risks, as required by law. "The commission has set the bar for safety and environmental protection," said Kierán Suckling, the Center's executive director. "Ignoring the commission puts our oceans, wildlife and economy at enormous risk of catastrophe."
Read more in our press release and check out our comprehensive Gulf Disaster website, which outlines the Center's extensive action (including eight lawsuits) to halt dangerous drilling since the BP spill.




25,000 Acres Saved for Rare Kangaroo Rat

Resolving a lawsuit by the Center for Biological Diversity and its partners, a judge on Tuesday struck down a federal attempt to slash protected "critical habitat" for the highly endangered San Bernardino kangaroo rat. Originally, the species was granted 33,000-plus acres of protected habitat -- due to an earlier Center suit -- but that area was dramatically reduced in 2008 to just 7,779 acres, after the building industry filed its own suit (trying to get its hands on the species' habitat for lucrative development).
"The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service decision to gut critical habitat wasn't based on sound science," said Ileene Anderson, a biologist with the Center. "The latest court ruling gives the San Bernardino kangaroo rat a better chance at survival." Threatened by habitat loss due to urbanization, sand and gravel mining, and flood-control projects, this big-footed, long-tailed little mammal is found only in California's Riverside and San Bernardino counties.

Urgent Safeguards Demanded for Miami Blue Butterfly -- Take Action

To save one of the world's most beautiful -- and closest to extinction -- invertebrates, the Center for Biological Diversity this Tuesday petitioned for emergency Endangered Species Act protection for the Miami blue butterfly. This bright blue, inch-long butterfly lives for only nine days -- but for an appalling 27 years, it's been on the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service's "candidate list," where the agency puts species that it admits need protection but refuses to protect. Twenty-four candidates have already gone extinct while on the list, and the Miami blue was recently discovered to have disappeared from its main location in Florida's Bahia Honda State Park. Just a few scattered individuals now remain in the Key West National Wildlife Refuge, all threatened by sprawl, fire suppression, pesticides, climate change and other factors.
The Center has been working to save the Miami blue for 10 years, since we first reached an agreement with the Service to expedite protection for 29 species, including the butterfly -- on which the agency obviously didn't follow through. We've also filed suit to protect all 254 candidate species.
Check out our press release and learn more about the Miami blue butterfly and our Candidate Project. Then take action to protect all 254 candidates.




Resolve to Be a Clean Air Advocate in 2011

Do you still need a New Year's Resolution for 2011? How about resolving to become one of the Center for Biological Diversity's Clean Air Advocates? Just as the Obama administration is beginning to use the tried and true Clean Air Act to address global warming, some in Congress have resolved to make 2011 the year they gut this cornerstone environmental law that has cut dangerous pollutants, saved thousands of lives, prevented millions of illnesses and saved more than $22 trillion.
As a Clean Air Advocate, you'll counter attacks on the Clean Air Act and push the feds to use this crucial law to solve our most pressing environmental crisis. With a motivated group of like-minded folks, you'll help the Center by taking action online, putting pressure on decision-makers, meeting with your congressional representatives, talking strategy during phone briefings, spreading the word in your community and more. Let's make this year a real turning point in the ever-more-urgent fight to stop global warming.Become a Clean Air Act Advocate today and check out our Clean Air Act Take-action Toolbox to get started. Contact Rose Braz, our climate campaign director, at rbraz@biologicaldiversity.org or (415) 436-9682 x 319 if you'd like more information.




Habitat Protection Sought for Northeast Fox Squirrel

To defend the dwindling range of North America's largest tree squirrel, the Center for Biological Diversity today filed a scientific petition to earn federally protected "critical habitat" for the endangered Delmarva Peninsula fox squirrel. This heavy-bodied, fluffy-tailed, silvery-gray squirrel occupies just 10 percent of its historic range, which has been devoured and degraded by logging and development. Now the squirrel also faces global warming-caused sea-level rise, which could inundate half its occupied habitat by next century. Though the fox squirrel has been federally protected since 1967, the feds have never designated critical habitat. The squirrel is hanging on only in portions of Maryland and a tiny part of Delaware (with a reintroduced population off the coast of Virginia).
"Designating critical habitat for the Delmarva Peninsula fox squirrel will help ensure its survival and recovery," said the Center's Bethany Cotton. "The Obama administration should work quickly to protect the habitat of one of the few endangered species living within a two-hour drive of the halls of power in D.C."

Surveys Show Delta Fish‏ Collapse Continues
Recent surveys in the San Francisco Bay-Delta reveal that native open-water fish species remain at alarmingly low levels, meaning California's largest estuary is still in ecological collapse. The California Department of Fish and Game's latest survey indicates that Sacramento splittail have reached record-low population levels, Delta smelt continue toward extinction, and longfin smelt continue to be endangered. Major factors in the declines are massive water diversions, toxic chemicals and pesticides, and invasive species. Powerful agricultural interests and the state of California have derailed federal measures to protect Central Valley chinook salmon and Delta smelt, instead promoting the diversion of even more water from the ravaged Delta ecosystem.
The Center for Biological Diversity is preparing to sue over a federal decision not to restore Endangered Species Act protections to the Sacramento splittail, which were improperly stripped under the Bush administration. We also have ongoing lawsuits over the rejection of our federal petition to protect longfin smelt and upgrade protections for Delta smelt.

New Law: Make a Tax-free IRA Donation by Jan. 31
Endangered plants and animals deserve a peaceful retirement too. And now they can have a chance at one, due to a new tax law.
The long-awaited IRA charitable donation tax exemption was finally signed into law last month. It allows individuals who are at least 70 1/2 to donate up to $100,000 tax-free to the Center for Biological Diversity from their traditional or Roth IRAs. It's tax-free because the donation won't count as personal income (other IRA withdrawals do). It will, however, count as part of your required minimum distribution. And because the law was created so late last year, it allows retroactive donations to be made up to Jan. 31, 2011, and still count against the 2010 tax year.
So if you love endangered species and have an extra $100,000 burning a hole in your IRA (or $10,000 for that matter, or even $1,000), you can donate it to the Center's species-protection work within the next two weeks as a tax-free 2010 gift.

In Memoriam: Judge John Roll (1948 – 2011)

Last Saturday, U.S. District Judge John M. Roll was shot and killed in an act of violence in Tucson, Ariz., an attack primarily aimed at Democratic congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords that also killed five other people. Roll had been a federal judge since 1991 and was 63 when he died.
Roll presided over many cases brought by the Center for Biological Diversity, including a landmark decision in which he struck down the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service's refusal to prepare a federal recovery plan or protect "critical habitat" for the endangered jaguar. The agency is now in the process of developing a recovery plan and mapping out essential U.S. jaguar habitat.
Said Center Executive Director Kierán Suckling: "John Roll is gone, the victim of a senseless shooting that has shaken our sense of civility and political discourse. But his life's work lives on, touching our lives and those of our children and grandchildren because of the lasting influence of his courageous judicial rulings. He upheld justice, and in so doing, made the world more just. He upheld the right of other species to thrive, and in so doing, made the world more meaningful."

Congress: Stop the Next Oil Disaster
The Deepwater Horizon oil disaster claimed the lives of 11 workers, killed scores of threatened and endangered sea turtles, brown pelicans and dolphins, and devastated the Gulf Coast economy. The long-term ecological impacts of the disaster may not be known for years.

This week, the National Oil Spill Commission released its final report on the catastrophe -- but by itself, a report cannot avert another disaster.

Urge your representative and senators to take action now to protect America’s shorelines, wildlife and regional economies from another offshore oil disaster.

Defending Wildlife
Speaking Out for Struggling Lobos
Wildlife Hero and Defenders supporter Jeanne Ossorio is on the front lines for Southwest wolves. She has tirelessly advocated for the protection of los lobos and helped blaze the trail for wolf-specific eco-tourism in the Southwest.

When news broke that the remaining 42 or so Southwest wolves could lose vital federal protections, Jeanne spoke out, noting that such a move would leave these wolves “at the mercy of local politicians who may or may not have their best interest at heart.”
