Vegan Diet Saves Animals and The Environment

Vegan Diet Saves Animals and The Environment

A vegan diet saves animals and the environment. Mercy for Animals is an awesome organization which is constantly helping abused animals. I just saw their latest statistics on the beneficial effects of eating a vegan diet. A great reminder to those who are not vegan.

To quote Mercy for Animals’, statistics, “Each day, a person who eats a vegan diet saves

  • 110 gallons of water
  • 45 lbs of grain
  • 30 sq ft of forests
  • 20 lbs of CO2
  • the life of one animal

Go vegan! There are great recipes and restaurants. Some are listed HERE under our Resources Section.

Help Elephant Raju.  ASAP

Help Elephant Raju. ASAP

Raju is an elephant in India that was recently rescued from his abuser after 50 years of abuse. He was near death and cried when rescued but now his abuser is trying to get him back. Please sign the petition to help Raju. They need another 25,000 signatures now.

Click HERE to help Raju by signing the petition.

 

Help Raju from abuse. We need more signatures by Sept 4.

Help Raju from abuse. We need more signatures by Sept 4.

Raju was rescued and freed in July of 2014 after spending almost 50 years in chains. At the time of his rescue he was near death. He was emaciated, dehydrated and exhausted. Despite his frailness, he was forced to beg on the streets and was being kept in spiked chains. Now the cruel person who had illegal custody of him is trying to get him back through the Allahabad court. You helped free him once, we need your voice once again to keep his freedom.

Save Elephants & Rhinos

Save Elephants & Rhinos

Help save the elephants and rhinos from poaching. They are brutally tortured and killed for their IVORY!!!   Their ivory is brutally removed from them to be used for TRINKETS !!!!! How horribly inhumane. Help by marching, signing petitions, sharing the information, donations to organizations…. Many ways to help. And definitely don’t buy trinkets. Helping abused animals is critical to them and our world. We are losing so many: 1 rhino is killed every 9 hours. 1 elephant is killed every 15 minutes. They don’t have much time left.

For more information about the march on October 4, and to find out the cities where the march will take place, visit http://www.march4elephantsandrhinos.org.

WWF Petitions are Helping Abused Animals

The petition sponsored by the World Wildlife Fund is helping the last Mekong Irrawaddy dolphins living in the wild. More than 200,000 supporters responded to WWF’s call to stop the Don Sahong dam, and by doing so they are helping abused animals.

WWF is seeing results quicker than imagined: “Two weeks ago, the Laos government told dam developers they would have to go through a formal consultation process. This consultation is likely to delay construction and requires Laos to conduct further studies on the project’s environmental and social impacts and share them with key groups. Despite Laos’ decision, we cannot call it a victory. The fight is not over yet.”

Let’s hope it does help the dolphins!
