Save Ballona Wetlands from Massive Bulldozing
Activists fought for over twenty years to save the rare freshwater habitat of Ballona Wetlands Ecological Reserve, home to many endangered and imperiled species. Now the California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW), backed by Wall Street's Playa Capital LLC's mega-development, plans to bulldoze the Ballona Wetlands and flood it with saltwater, which will kill the plants and animals who live there. We can’t let this happen!
Stop Dairy Industry From Forcing Milk Down School Kids' Throats
Recently, the House of Representatives was presented with H.R. 4101, deceptively named The School Milk Nutrition Act of 2017, a bill designed to "reverse declining milk consumption in schools." This would allow the dairy industry to force it's antibiotic ridden, obesity-promoting products on children! We can't allow this flagrant abuse of power to happen.

Permits to Import Elephant Trophies Issued Despite Ban!
When U.S. Secretary of Interior Ryan Zinke, a trophy hunter appointed by President Trump, moved to end a U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service ban on importing elephant trophies from Zimbabwe, the resulting public outrage forced at least a temporary delay ordered by President Trump. Now, despite all the alerts dedicated people like you signed of ours and other groups, a Freedom of Information Act request (FOIA) by Friends of Animals and Zimbabwe Conservation Task Force has uncovered sixteen permits that were granted by U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to import trophies from Zimbabwe despite the ban still being in effect! This is outrageous!
