Defenders of Wildlife: Earth Day Call for Responsible Conservation Leadership
Since being appointed almost two years ago, Interior Secretary Kempthorne hasn’t listed a single new species under the Endangered Species Act — even though federal biologists warn that at least 280 native species could disappear forever without such protections.

Farm Sanctuary: Speak Out On The Undeniable Connection Between Large-scale Animal Farming and Our Earth’s Environmental Problems
Industrial animal agriculture is responsible for some of the worst abuses to animals, but it’s also responsible for more greenhouse gas emissions than the transportation industry, making it a leading cause of global warming.

Farm Sanctuary: Farm Sanctuary Calls on California to Reject AB 2296
Farm Sanctuary calls on all those who care about animals and civil rights to contact members of the California Judiciary Committee and urge them to reject AB 2296. Euphemistically known as the Animal Enterprise Protection Act, AB 2296 is a state version of the controversial, chilling federal legislation known as the Animal Enterprise Terrorism Act, quietly passed by a lame duck Congress in November of 2006. (Elaine has more here.)

Forest Ethics: Tell the BC government to uphold its commitment to save the Great Bear Rainforest!

In Defense of Animals (IDA): Writing Alert: Ban Horse-Drawn Carriages in NYC
On April 10th, the New York Sun published two editorials on the issue of horse carriages in New York City. One, by ASPCA president and CEO Edwin Sayres, supports a ban on the horse carriage industry because of the suffering it causes to equines. The other, by an editor at the Sun, paints a deceptively rosy picture of the horse-drawn carriage industry.

Save Our Wild Salmon (SOS): 2008 National Road Show – Contact Congress Today!
Please take a minute to contact your members of Congress and urge their leadership to address the Pacific salmon crisis and save this irreplaceable national treasure from extinction. (Tiny Violin Alert ™: Be sure to edit out the reference to salmon as “nutritious food” in the first paragraph of the sample letter, should you choose to use it.)

The Sierra Club: McCain: Holiday for Big Oil?
If John McCain really wants to put money back in our pockets, he needs to take it out of Big Oil’s. That means voting to cut their subsidies and using that money to help build the clean energy economy. Will you sign the petition to tell Senator McCain to end giveaways to Big Oil and invest in clean, renewable energy?
