When undercover investigators made their way onto Chinese fur farms
recently, they found that many animals are still alive and struggling
desperately when workers flip them onto their backs or hang them up by their
legs or tails to skin them. When workers on these farms begin to cut the
skin and fur from an animal's leg, the free limbs kick and writhe. Workers
stomp on the necks and heads of animals who struggle too hard to allow a

Making sense of paper labels
Choose goods that leave the most trees in the forest...
The whitest isn't always the greenest...
Consider treeless paper...
Look for these logos
You already know that recycled printer paper, bathroom and facial tissues,
and paper towels are the greenest choices. But did you know that not all
recycled products are created equally?

Next time you shop for coffee or chocolate, look for these labels:
Millions of acres of land have been cleared worldwide to grow coffee and
cacao (aka cocoa - the chocolate bean), effectively evicting all the forest
inhabitants, including Boreal birds. Farmers who are producing either of
these crops as a monoculture - ie. only growing one thing in their fields -
use plants bred to love the sun, so they will flourish in direct sunlight.
But these require chemical fertilizers and pesticides.

Sarah Palin supports aerial hunting of wolves and bears.
Dear John "Caveman",
As America looks toward a new era in Washington, DC, I'm feeling hopeful that we can finally turn the page on a dark chapter for America's wildlife.
That's why I'm especially saddened and angered that Alaska Governor Sarah Palin is continuing her anti-wildlife policies. Governor Palin -- along with the wealthy trophy hunting lobby -- is still seeking to expand the brutal aerial wolf slaughter program that has already claimed the lives of more than 860 wolves.
Her wolf-killing frenzy is out-of-control. Palin's Department of Fish & Game recently approved an aggressive policy allowing for the killing of wolf mothers and the savage shooting of newborn pups in their dens.
It's simply maddening!
But we will not give in. We stopped her from reaching the vice presidency -- and we can stop her in Alaska.
With the incredible contributions from caring people like you, we were able to expose Palin’s terrible record on wolves as she took to the national stage in last year’s election -- helping to prevent Sarah Palin from becoming Vice President of the United States.
Now we need your support to end Sarah Palin’s ghastly aerial wolf-killing program.
Defenders Action Fund will forcefully oppose Governor Palin and her Board of Game’s plans to kill wolves to artificially boost game populations for out-of-state trophy hunters and fight the Palin/AOC-supported legislation to gun down even more wolves. We stopped her last year, and with your help, we can defeat her again.
But we’re not stopping there. With a new leadership in Washington, DC comes real hope for wolves. In Congress, we can pass the Protect America’s Wildlife (PAW) Act to end Governor Palin’s aerial wolf slaughter -- and prevent programs like it from spreading to places like the Greater Yellowstone region. We’ll work with the Obama Administration to close the deadly loophole that Palin exploits to kill more wolves.
And we’ll continue to bring the fight nationwide by keeping Palin’s wolf-slaughter program in the national spotlight.
This year, Governor Sarah Palin is aiming to slaughter more than 600 wolves in what could be the bloodiest aerial wolf-killing season ever -- now, with the help of wealthy special interests, she wants to expand the brutal program even more.
