Big, Bold Strides for Animals.

That's what we're committing to for 2011, and I'm hoping you'll commit to helping us achieve it by making your year-end tax-deductible donation today.

With our Donor Match Challenge, your gift can help you save on your taxes, AND help twice as many animals. A generous donor has agreed to match all year-end donations up to $25,000, so your gift can have DOUBLE the impact for animals.

Please Give Today

And if we've learned anything in 2010, it's that with you on our side, we CAN make a huge, lifesaving difference in the lives of individual animals and whole populations:

> When whales faced the dire threat of whaling becoming legal again, you stood with us to face that threat head-on. We couldn't match the governments dollar-for-dollar, but they couldn't match our passion to do what's right for animals. And with you by our side, we were able to prevail. But the whalers continue to cruelly hunt and kill whales. We need to continue to expose this cruelty and let the world know that the whales are not saved and need us more than ever.

> 260,000 harp seals: That's how many were saved last spring in Canada thanks to your support in helping secure bans in seal trade and shut down the markets for seal parts. And while we're thrilled that we were able to save so many seals, the Canadian government continues to support the commercial seal hunt. So we need you to help us keep the pressure on to finally end this hunt for good.

> IFAW's Emergency Relief team rushed to Haiti after the devastating earthquake, and to Pakistan after historic flooding. In just those two missions, IFAW helped more than 68,295 animals - from beloved family cats and dogs - to farm animals like goats, cows and oxen that are critical to human survival. We can't be sure when the next natural disaster will strike, so we need to be ready to respond at a moment's notice.

> Rabies is a deadly disease that spreads quickly and causes an agonizing death. IFAW is helping save 400,000 dogs in Bali by supporting a massive vaccination campaign led by WSPA. And after a child in Johannesburg, South Africa, tragically died from rabies, IFAW launched an emergency vaccination program that vaccinated 5,000 dogs and stopped the rabies outbreak. We need to continue our lifesaving rabies vaccination campaigns.

These achievements are just the tip of the iceberg of all that IFAW has accomplished in the past year, and what we hope to do for animals in 2011.

Of course, none of it is possible without the incredible dedication and generosity of our supporters.

Please help us make more big, bold strides for animals in 2011 by giving your year-end tax-deductible donation today.

Dear Aurélie,

2010 was truly an amazing year for animals. I'm so proud of what you were able to help us accomplish.

Together we cared for tens-of-thousands of cats, dogs, and farm animals after devastating earthquakes and floods... we helped save over 250,000 seals and moved even closer to an end to Canada's commercial seal hunt...against steep odds, we helped defeat a deadly proposal to legalize whaling...and we protected and cared for countless animals, big and small, all around the world.

I'm so thankful for your support in helping make the world a safer and kinder place for animals in 2010.

I've put together a special video slideshow of our top images and stories from the past year.

Please take a few moments to watch and celebrate the wonderful impact you helped us have in 2010.

Then please make your year-end donation to help us do even more for animals in 2011.

A gift of any amount will do so much to help animals in 2011:
We need to keep the pressure up to secure a ban on Canada's commercial seal hunt; we're so close - your gift will help redouble our efforts;
Our lifesaving programs that provide free veterinary care, spay/neuters and vaccinations in impoverished communities are needed more than ever;
IFAW's Emergency Rescue team is preparing for another busy year of earthquakes, floods, hurricanes and other disasters - with your help, we'll rescue thousands more animals in 2011;
And we'll continue to lead the fight to protect whales, elephants, tigers, and so many more animals, wherever we are needed.
We can only do it with your help.

Please give today to help us continue our lifesaving work.

With you by our side, we CAN make 2011 even better for animals!

Fred O'Regan
IFAW President

p.s. I truly feel that 2011 will be a landmark year for IFAW and for the animals we rescue, protect, and care for. I hope you'll join us by making your year-end donation today. Remember, all gifts will be matched, helping twice as many suffering animals.

Boycott Launched to Save Bluefin Tuna: Sign Our Pledge

Bluefin tuna -- one of the oceans' most remarkable species -- continues to be pushed toward extinction, yet international fishing regulators have refused to do anything about it. That's why on Tuesday the Center for Biological Diversity launched a national boycott of bluefin tuna, which is still a staple in many sushi restaurants. We're calling on chefs, restaurateurs and consumers like you not to buy bluefin tuna or spend money at restaurants that serve it. This warm-blooded fish can grow up to 10 feet long, swim at 50 miles per hour and cross the entire Atlantic ocean in just 60 days. Because of overfishing, it's declined by more than 80 percent since 1970. It took another hit earlier this year when the Gulf of Mexico oil spill polluted its only spawning grounds, decimating an estimated 20 percent of all juvenile bluefin. The Center petitioned for Endangered Species Act protection for Atlantic bluefin in May. But just last week, international regulators approved new fishing quotas that don't do anything to help this magnificent fish.
"The urgent plight of bluefin tuna has been well known for years and, while some restaurants have rightly removed it from their menus, others continue to serve it," said the Center's Catherine Kilduff. "That has to stop if we're going to keep this fish from slipping into oblivion."
Already, more than 15,000 people have signed our pledge to stop eating bluefin tuna sushi or going to restaurants that serve it. You should be next, and then share this campaign with your friends, family and on Facebook. Bluefin are counting on you.Sign our pledge now to let bluefin off the hook and check out our new Bluefin Boycott website. Then get more from AFP.

800 Acres Safeguarded for Rare SoCal Plant

In response to a lawsuit by the Center for Biological Diversity, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service on Tuesday designated almost 800 acres of protected "critical habitat" for Southern California's endangered San Diego ambrosia. This low-growing, blue-gray herb with tiny yellow flowers has declined dramatically from 50 U.S. populations to just 18 in recent years, mainly due to urban sprawl. The designation of 189 protected acres in Riverside County and 594 in San Diego County will help ensure the plant's survival: Species with critical habitat are less than half as likely to be declining as those without.
But, says Center biologist Ileene Anderson: "San Diego ambrosia is in desperate need of critical habitat not just for its existence but for its recovery. This designation will safeguard where the plants currently are growing, but it completely fails to ensure that they will be able to recover to levels to prevent extinction." The Center has been working to protect the ambrosia since 1997, when along with the California Native Plant Society we first petitioned to earn it Endangered Species Act safeguards.
Check out our press release and learn more about San Diego ambrosia.

Feds Move to Bar Wolves From Protection -- Act Today

News reports this week said Interior Secretary Ken Salazar is supporting federal legislation that would exempt endangered gray wolves in the northern Rocky Mountains from Endangered Species Act protections. His approach echoes a bill written by Sens. Max Baucus and Jon Tester (D.-Mont.) that would deprive wolves in Idaho and Montana from the federal safety net of the Act, leaving these important predators vulnerable to state persecution and even outright extermination. (The bill is one of four recently introduced in Congress that attacks gray wolves.) Further, Congress could exempt these wolves from the Act and its protections, without public hearings, before the end of the year. But science shows that gray wolves in the northern Rockies haven't yet recovered, and this blatantly political move goes against the whole intent of the Endangered Species Act.
The Center for Biological Diversity has fought for a decade to defend not only the northern Rockies gray wolf, but wolves in the Great Lakes region, the Southwest and across their historic U.S. habitat. We've filed a petition for a national recovery plan that would help restore wolves to parts of their former range across the lower 48 states.Take action now by telling President Barack Obama and your U.S. senators to protect northern Rockies wolves and ensure the integrity of the Act. Then read this New York Times editorial and check out our brand-new Restoring the Gray Wolf Web page.

New Offshore Plan Would Hurt Arctic Wildlife

The Obama administration on Wednesday announced plans to revise the national offshore oil-drilling plan that, while protecting areas off Florida and the Atlantic seaboard, would allow for drilling in the fragile Arctic off Alaska -- right in areas newly designated as protected "critical habitat" for the polar bear. The new proposed plan, covering the years 2012-2017, is almost the same as the Bush administration's 2007-2012 plan, which the courts struck down as illegal. Interior Secretary Ken Salazar has also announced plans to consider letting Shell Oil drill off the coast of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge -- where polar bears, spectacled eiders and many other sensitive species dwell -- as early as next summer.
The Center for Biological Diversity and allies filed the lawsuit that resulted in Bush's offshore plan being deemed unlawful. Since 2007 we've also been in court fighting Shell's Arctic drilling, and after Center opposition this year, BP announced last week it was delaying its controversial "Liberty" Arctic drilling project. If an oil spill like this year's Gulf of Mexico disaster were to occur in the Arctic, the results would be ecologically catastrophic, since we don't have the technology or infrastructure to clean up oil in icy waters. "While protecting the fragile coasts of Florida and the Atlantic is important, there is no excuse for continuing to consider drilling in polar bear critical habitat off the coast of Alaska," said the Center's Brendan Cummings. "If the risk of an oil spill is too great for Florida, it is also certainly too great for Alaska."
Get details in our press release and check out our brand-new Arctic Oil Development Web page.

More Uranium Mines Threatening Grand Canyon

The Arizona Department of Environmental Quality is moving full speed ahead on permitting three uranium mines without adequately protecting the wildlife and resources of one of the country's most treasured monuments, Grand Canyon National Park. Denison Mines is seeking aquifer and air permits that would include fewer restrictions and require fewer precautions than what's needed -- even though all three mines are near the Grand Canyon watershed, which studies show is already suffering from increased radiation levels and toxic contamination near mined sites. Federal regulators have issued more than 60 citations since 2009 relating to operations at Denison's Arizona 1 mine north of the Grand Canyon and the company's Pandora mine in Utah. The Center for Biological Diversity and partners are suing the Bureau of Land Management for allowing the opening of the Arizona 1 mine without updating ancient mining plans and environmental reviews.
The Center will be speaking out strongly against lax permits for the three new mines in public hearings next month; stay tuned to learn how you can get involved. In the meantime, we're working to support the Obama administration's proposed congressional resolution to ban new mining across 1 million acres of Grand Canyon public lands. That resolution will be considered by the Flagstaff, Ariz., city council next week.

The Center at Cancún Climate Conference -- Watch Videos

As this year shapes up to be one of the hottest on record, world leaders are gathering in Cancún, Mexico, for the 2010 climate change conference -- and the Center for Biological Diversity is there too, pushing for significant action on the unprecedented climate crisis our whole globe faces. We've teamed up with to show the world that if we want to avoid catastrophic, irreversible climate change, it's critical to drastically cut greenhouse gas emissions and bring our atmospheric CO2 level to 350 parts per million (down from the current 387 ppm level). While in Cancún, we'll lead a session to educate conference attendees on the 350 target and are hosting an exhibit celebrating the UN's International Year of Biodiversity, highlighting 350 species threatened by global warming, with a special focus on species in Mexico.
And we'll be posting regular video updates on the progress of negotiations, the issues at stake and our hard work to influence the global conversation on global warming.
Read a National Journal article by the Center's Kassie Siegel, who's in Cancún right now. Then check out our new Cancún Web page, where you can watch videos and get the latest updates.

U.S. Fisheries Managers Urged to Protect Marine Mammals From Foreign Fisheries

Following action by the Center for Biological Diversity and friends, this week more than a dozen members of Congress urged federal fisheries managers to move fast on new rules to protect marine mammals from foreign fishing fleets. Hundreds of thousands of whales, seals and other animals die each year as "bycatch" on the hooks of non-U.S. fisheries -- especially foreign swordfish fleets, which use particularly deadly gillnets and longlines responsible for an estimated 300,000 annual marine mammal deaths. The dozens of nations that export wild-captured fish to the United States have never proven that their fishing practices protect marine mammals as required by the U.S. Marine Mammal Protection Act.
Spurred by a 2008 petition by the Center and Turtle Island Restoration Network, the National Marine Fisheries Service is now starting to define U.S. standards for all imported seafood. This week's congressional letter is intended to speed that process and focus on the highest-bycatch foreign seafood, including swordfish and tuna. Said Center Oceans Director Miyoko Sakashita, "The United States must encourage foreign fishing fleets to clean up their act."

Give Species a Happy Holiday With Our Greener Giving Guide

The next few weeks will be full of commercials and junk mail about holiday shopping and what everyone's buying. On Black Friday alone, tens of millions of dollars were spent in the United States buying new products to kick off this shopping season. Now, imagine the massive carbon cost to the planet from producing, shipping, advertising, distributing and consuming those products . . . wow.
That's why the Center for Biological Diversity has created the 2010 Greener Giving Guide -- your resource for the best ways to give greener this holiday season, including exclusive tips for nonmaterial gifts (like a Center membership) and an invitation to save gas and contribute to our species-saving mission by shopping our online store. (Note: We offset our own carbon emissions so you can feel good about getting a new eco-friendly Center shirt or hat in the mail.)
Check out this year's Greener Giving Guide, give a gift membership that gives all year and shop our online store for green holiday gifts.

Koalas' Picky Tastes Reveal Favorite "Neighborhoods"

Still feeling the effects of an overindulgent Thanksgiving? Maybe you should've been more like the koala, which may be the pickiest of all marsupials, with its diet exclusively consisting of eucalyptus leaves.
A new study published found something else interesting about koalas: Monitoring their eating habits can help us conserve them. The study, published last month in the journal Ecology, tested eucalyptus leaves on captive koalas to see which ones they preferred eating -- gathering data that may be used to map out prime koala habitat. Specifically, they found that koalas prefer tree "neighborhoods" with large trees, trees whose leaves contained lots of fat-soluble chemicals and trees that stood out as more tasty than those around them.

Stop Iceland's Cruel Whale Slaughter

Whalers in Iceland have killed over 200 whales this year alone, in the same waters where tourists visit to marvel at these gigantic sea mammals. Not only is this practice inhumane, but it is also hurting the country economically. The whale watching industry generates more than $15 million each year for coastal communities on this island nation.
Send a message to Iceland's ambassador to the U.S., asking him to help end whaling in his native country and to work to protect their whale watching industry.

A very prestigious news network for the animals in Europe expresses they support for the animals in Romania, and as all good people living in Southeastern Europe, waits with hope and prays good news for the animals from the EU
I only want to let our members know that the fate of Romanian animals is well know - in Europe and recently in the entire world, unfortunately because of the horror animals live in.
And I also want to thank SAV ( Serbian Animals Voice ) for their extraordinary fight for the animals rights in the entire Southeastern Europe.I want to believe that we too will stand for them when they plea for help.A new Bulletin is up.
