Wyoming Wolves to be Shot on Sight
A plan unveiled last week by the State of Wyoming and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) would allow wolves across most of the state to be shot on sight, without a permit and without limit. No protections for pregnant or nursing wolves, no protections for pups. Just a license to kill wolves across most of the state.
Tell Secretary of Interior Salazar that this unscientific shoot-on-sight “management” plan is unacceptable and ask that he use his power to force Wyoming to come up with a responsible, science-based management plan.

Save Our Songbirds…STOP the Tar Sands Pipeline
The proposed Keystone XL pipeline would carry dirty tar sands oil from Canada’s Boreal forest to refineries in Texas, driving more destruction of songbird habitat, fueling global warming, and threatening drinking water for millions of Americans. The U.S. State Department is rushing towards approval of this fiasco, which is designed to enrich the oil giants.
Tell Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to reject the proposed disastrous Keystone XL pipeline. The Keystone XL pipeline will enrich the oil giants while Americans pay for it with our environment, our climate and even our lives.

Tell the EPA to Protect Our Wildlife and Waterways from Pesticides
Nearly a billion pounds of pesticides are used each year in the United States. Pesticide contamination is pervasive in aquatic habitat for fish and wildlife throughout the country and in the public water supply, causing needless threats to both wildlife and human health. Many pesticides have been shown to contribute to the loss of native fish and amphibian populations and cause significant bird kills. They’re a particular threat to wildlife species facing extinction.
Tell the EPA to reduce toxic pesticides in our waterways by protecting habitat for imperiled wildlife from pesticides and increasing water-quality monitoring for pesticides.

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
