Tell Alaska’s Governor to Keep Whale Protections
There are only a little more than 300 Cook Inlet beluga whales in the entire world. These wondrous whales are found in just one place: the Cook Inlet near Anchorage, Alaska.
Cook Inlet beluga whales have been protected under the Endangered Species Act for just less than two years. But the State of Alaska has filed to overturn these vital protections, siding with polluters and developers who have put Cook Inlet belugas on a fast-track to extinction.
Tell Alaska Governor Sean Parnell to drop his legal efforts to eliminate vitally needed protections for the 300 remaining Cook Inlet beluga whales.

Contact:
Governor Sean Parnell
550 West 7th Avenue, Suite 1700
Anchorage, AK 99501

Tell Congress to Support the Global Conservation Act
Wild tigers are on a path toward extinction, unless we act fast. Write to your lawmakers and ask them to co-sponsor the Global Conservation Act of 2010 to help combat wildlife trafficking and habitat destruction.

Contact your U.S. Representative
Contact your U.S. Senators

Information / Talking Points:

Wild tigers are now on the brink of extinction. It is estimated that fewer than 3,200 now remain and, of these, only 1,000 are breeding females.
I’m writing to urge you to support S.3508/H.R. 4959, the Global Conservation Act of 2010, which would require the six federal agencies that conduct conservation programs around the world to pursue a unified strategy to stop illegal poaching, to combat wildlife trafficking operations and to reverse environmental destruction endangering the tiger population. This important legislation was introduced by Senators Tom Udall (D-NM) and Sam Brownback (R-KS) in the Senate and Representatives Russ Carnahan (D-MO) and Jeff Fortenberry (R-NE) in the House.
This fall, world leaders will gather in St. Petersburg for the Global Tiger Initiative Summit, where they will negotiate a plan to prevent the wild tiger’s extinction. The United States’ leadership on this issue is also much needed.
I strongly urge you to co-sponsor the Global Conservation Act of 2010 and make sure the United States is doing its part to help wild tigers. We don’t have much time before this crisis turns into tragedy.

About rachel

Hi, I'm Rachel and I've been active with NARN as long as I've been vegan 13 years! I made the choice to be vegan after learning about what happens to egg laying chickens and dairy cows. I had previously been vegetarian for 7 years because I finally made the connection that beef came from cows and pork came from pigs (duh, I know). I didn't want my food choices to cause the death of an animal. It just seems like common sense to not eat animals if you care at all about animals, the earth or your fellow human beings. I became active with NARN because after I found out about the atrocities happening to animals, I felt that I had to do what I could to help stop these injustices. NARN is local, puts the animals first, and networks with other groups. We aren't worried about getting credit - just helping the animals. One of my favorite quotes is: "I think the purpose of life is to be useful, to be responsible, to be compassionate. It is, above all to matter, to count, to stand for something, to have made some difference that you lived at all." ~ Leo Rosten and "Progress in every age results only from the fact that there are some men and women who refuse to believe that what they know to be right cannot be done." --Russell W. Davenport
