Urgent: Protect Grizzlies from Trophy Hunters!
Wyoming and Idaho are considering opening up hunting seasons on grizzly bears as early as this coming fall. Grizzly bears were only delisted as an endangered species less than a year ago. Without protection under the Endangered Species Act, individual states can now decide whether to allow bear hunts. It's clear that Wyoming and Idaho are committed to preventing the long-term recovery of grizzlies. We must stop this hunting bloodbath and protect these indigenous animals!
Rep. Steve King Is the Devil & We Must Stop Him
Rep. Steve King of Iowa is on a mission to destroy practically every piece of legislation that protects animals passed on the state level, but in one fell federal swoop. Hard-won legislation to protect animals suffering in puppy mills, on fur farms, in dog fighting rings, and on factory farms will be annihilated. Suffering animals will be hit hard and we must act now!
Governments and Billionaires Increasingly Saying No To Dolphin Captivity
