Good News: TripAdvisor Will Stop Selling Tickets to Some of the Cruelest Tourist Activities

There was a time when it was believed that dolphins enjoyed swimming with humans. That might have been true when the animals were able to swim with someone by choice but being held captive to perform this kind of action is cruel and inhumane.

There also might have been a time when elephants would have helped a human by letting this person sit on their back. But being forced to carry tourists around has nothing to do with choice or pleasure or freedom.

And to believe that baby tigers would willingly leave their mothers to sit on a tourist’s lap is either very naive or worse.

Trip Advisor has listened. The company will stop supporting this kind of cruelty.

Who Want Bears in Florida?

Bildschirmfoto 2015-10-15 um 08.53.00 Bildschirmfoto 2015-10-15 um 08.53.07

It seems only hunters want bears in Florida. The lobby for the animals in Florida had a chance in court, but lost. So this year the bears will have no protection from those who kill for pleasure.

There is a chance the appeals court will vote differently, but there is “bearly” any time left. Please speak up for the bears and help them survive in Florida.

Black Bears Need Bright Future

Some people believe that bears are cuddly toys. And cute to watch. But bears grow into imposing creatures and then they often end up in abysmal places. Somewhere in Tennessee, two bears have made it to a better future. But those that had to stay behind also have a right to a bright future, outside of a concrete entrapment into a green life.

“Two Himalayan black bears who had been confined to a tiny cage in a residential backyard by Three Bears General Store Owner Bill DeLozier in Sevierville, Tenn., have been released into their new homes at The Wild Animal Sanctuary in Colorado. But there are five more bears still being held captive in a virtually barren concrete pit at DeLozier’s store, and they need your help.”

When Cheating Is Deadly

There are people who argue that hunting belongs to the oldest traditions of mankind. This reasoning makes these people believe that it still is correct to kill animals through hunting them down. Arguing back that we also do not want to go back to living in caves might not help here.

In any case: hunting animals who are trapped, bated, tethered, or in any form incapacitated equals torture and murder.

“The state of Alaska is allowing inhumane, unsportsmanlike and scientifically unsound hunting of wolves and bears — and we need your help to stop it.

The controversial practices include baiting brown and black bears into easy shooting range using greasy meat, donuts and dog food; killing bears in their winter dens; and “harvesting” wolf pups and bear cubs.

If not for permanent protective measures now proposed by the National Park Service, even wildlife in our national preserves could be victims of these extreme, cruel practices, allowed elsewhere in the state by Alaska’s Board of Game.”

Brown Bears and Mining Do Not Mix

Bears feed on salmon, salmon returns to the same spawning places every year. So the bears come back to these same places every year as well. But if the mining company has the say there will be no more salmon at this place next year. There will be no food for the bears, either.

“Every summer, brown bears gather in the pristine waterways of Alaska’s Bristol Bay to catch salmon swimming upstream to spawn.

But soon, this vast habitat area that is home to brown bears and the largest runs of salmon in the world could be devastated by a massive open pit copper mine.

The Environmental Protection Agency is in the process of making final decisions about allowing the proposed Pebble Mine project to move forward, and they need to hear from you.”
