pbnb reader-

Did you see this? The state of Alaska’s indiscriminate killing
has cut short years of valuable wolf research!

Will you help us protect imperiled wildlife?

Thank you for your urgent and compassionate donation.


Help us protect predators in Alaska and imperiled wildlife nationwide.

Dear pbnb reader,

An entire wolf pack killed. Years of research cut short.

Alaska’s campaign of brutal and indiscriminate killing of
wolves, bears and other predators is so intense that National Park
Service scientists are abandoning a 23-year old study of wolf behavior
because so many of their study animals have been killed.

This cannot stand. Your urgent donation will help us protect predators
in Alaska and imperiled wildlife nationwide.

Since 2005, Alaska has been killing predators using a range of
outrageous tactics including aerial gunning, killing mother wolves and
their young in their dens, using bait to attract bears and using traps
and snares. The state has also expanded hunting seasons and bag limits
to aggressively target predators in an effort to artificially inflate
moose and other game animal populations so that hunters have more to

pbnb reader, help us protect wolves >>

They even use “Judas wolves,” animals that are caught, radio-collared
and then lead shooters back to their doomed packs.

John, the U.S. Fish and
Wildlife Service finalized a rule just two weeks ago to prohibit this
sort of abuse on national wildlife refuges. But we are confident that
Alaska will continue to pull out all the stops to block these crucial

And advocates of Alaska’s extreme and excessive killing
practices have friends on Capitol Hill. In fact, legislative proposals
to nullify this new rule have already passed the full U.S. House of
Representatives twice!

Defenders worked hard to help establish these regulations, and now, we
are working even harder to stop Congress from blocking them.

These are desperate times for the wildlife you and I love. Together,
we can turn back these appalling attacks and protect imperiled animals
wherever they are threatened. We can do it, but only with the help of
people who care…people like you.

Please donate today.

Thank you for all you do!

5 days to stop Monsanto

Date: 2016-06-01 03:01
From: Bert Wander – Avaaz

Dear friends,

A toxic weed-killer that probably causes cancer is so common that studies have found it in our blood, but we have we no idea when we are exposed to it.

Now, for the first time ever, glyphosate could be banned — THANKS TO OUR MASSIVE CAMPAIGNING!!

For a year Monsanto has lobbied Europe to re-approve this poison, and Avaazers have blocked every time. Now it’s being brought to a final vote, and the chemical giants are pulling out all the stops.

But our public campaigning is beating them out, and we have an extraordinary, against the odds, chance to win.

We have just five days! Sign the urgent petition now — if we get action in the EU, it will set a precedent for it to be removed everywhere. Each signature counts — our numbers will be shown on an LED screen right outside the meeting:

We’re all at risk. And it’s not just a threat to our health, chemical-driven industrial agriculture produces a third of greenhouse gases, and destroys ecosystems that sustain life on Earth. The sooner we phase out glyphosate the better. If we rise to this moment, our movement will be playing a key role in
one of the key battles of our time.

Relicensing glyphosate was supposed to be a formality and decided behind closed doors, but our massive petition, tens of thousands of phone calls, emails and tweets to EU government officials, and protests have made the impossible possible. Now it’s crunch time!

But we are up against one of the most powerful companies in the world. Glyphosate is the chemical cornerstone of Monsanto’s empire, and it brings in billions per year. That’s why it’s going to take all of us to make sure the decision makers see unprecedented numbers demanding precaution before profits.
Join now and spread the word:

If we win in Europe — we are not only setting a course away from glyphosate globally, we are challenging the absurd system by which these chemicals are approved, and dealing a critical blow to the corporate capture of our democracies. With this we will begin to change the future of our food all over the world. This is our moment to turn the tide — let’s do it!

In determination and hope,

Bert, Pascal, Alice, Lisa, Camille, Luca, Antonia and the whole Avaaz team

BAD NEWS: A bee-killing pesticide is back!
Help us fight it with our 2-for-1 match.

Date: 2016-05-31 07:09
From: “Greg Loarie, Earthjustice”

Dear Peoples bark news berkeley reader —

In the wake of our major Earthjustice court victory last fall, the Environmental Protection Agency is once again bowing to industry pressure and proposing to bring the toxic bee-killing pesticide sulfoxaflor back to market.

We need your help to fight back! Please make a gift today, and your tax-deductible gift will be matched 2-to-1 by our Board of Trustees. This means that every $1 you give today will become $3 to help us take on critical battles like this, and win!:

In response to our victory last year, a court admonished the EPA for relying on bogus science and pressed the agency to obtain valid studies of sulfoxaflor’s effect on bees. Since that ruling–which took this toxic pesticide off the market–the EPA has not received additional data, nor has it taken adequate measures to resolve problems that the court identified from existing studies.

Yet last week the EPA proposed bringing back the bee-killing pesticide!

This winter we saw a record 44 percent loss in beehives. We’re at a point of crisis–we can’t sit back as the EPA continues to bow to industry pressure.

We need your help right now to fight back. Make an urgent gift of $5 or more to help take on powerful corporate interests that will stop at nothing to put profits ahead of people and the planet:

Pesticides are causing bee mortality, yet our government continues to approve toxic bee-killing pesticides for widespread use. And sulfoxaflor, a neonicotinoid pesticide, is one of the worst. Trace amounts can kill bees outright, and in amounts that may not kill immediately, it impairs bees’ ability
to breed, forage, fight disease and survive the winter.

Earthjustice is fighting back for beekeepers and for the millions of Americans like YOU who want action now to save bees.

But we must act now. And to do so, we need you by our side.

Thank you for any help you can give.


Greg Loarie

P.S. With the EPA’s latest move, we know the battle to save bees is far from over. Help us fight back and your gift to Earthjustice will be tripled, thanks to a generous match by our Board of Trustees:
