Despite the 1990 ban on ivory trade, elephants continue to be killed by poachers. According to Defenders of Wildlife, at the turn of the 20th century, there were a few million African elephants and about 100,000 Asian elephants. Today, there are an estimated 450,000 to 700,000 African elephants and between 35,000 and 40,000 wild Asian elephants. Defenders of Wildlife is working through the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species (CITES) to maintain a ban on the sale of ivory…Continue

This video is the most disgusting thing i have ever seen, i have always had a soft spot for animals and this is just heart breaking to watch.
I find it sad that this is the only way for people to be shocked into change, with such graphic material. I truly am saddened by what humans have come to.
I don't like preaching to people because it is their lives. but when…Continue
i'm usualy not one to get annoyed with what people do, but when people criticise us for not eating animal products .. it gets me a tad upset! they dont have to be vegan or believe in the same things as us.. but they don't have to be rude and think of us as any less a person then them.. just because of what we eat and believe! i really hope people will change their ways soon.. because I'm getting a tiny bit agitated!

Animals, Moral Status of - by Oscar Horta
It is now widely assumed that all and only human beings merit full moral consideration, that human interests count for more than similar interests of other creatures. Thus, if a human being feels exactly the same pain as a nonhuman animal, then barring some other morally relevant consideration, ending the human’s pain is morally more important. However, even many who claim that human…

Have just received the following:
. . . My article for The Commentator exposed the brutal new EU animal testing rules that came into force on 1st January. This legislation allows all sorts disturbing activities to take place including the beheading of birds, the bludgeoning of puppies and kittens and animal testing on stray pets – which could in fact be your own pets at some time in the future. . . The EU clearly does not care about the rights of animals, who cannot…

Who moderates AR Zone? I want to contact them.
This was the headline article in the Sunday Age today, one of our major newspapers. While I am pleased to see it given such prominence it is nevertheless distressing to read what we all probably know or suspect, that 'ethics committees' and a bit of a joke.
For anyone who feels so inclined I think it would be appropriate to contact Monash University, and the National health and Medical Research Council which you can Google to express ourtage and be advocates for the…Continue

One of my favourite poems by DH Lawrence. I was reminded of this today when a young woman in a shop squashed a spider on the counter just as I said 'DON'T" and before I could stop her. I said 'why did you do that?' and she asked what I'd have done with it and I said 'put it outside.' But I recalled being afraid of spiders as a child, my mother telling me I was afraid of them, and how long it took me to treat them respectfully.
A snake came to my…

Professor Eleonora Gullone, Associate Professor in Psychology at Monash University, Australia, believes that “Almost without exception, the perpetrators of animal cruelty crimes are the same individuals who carry out aggressive and violent acts including assault, partner and child abuse. Thus, animal cruelty crimes should be treated with the same seriousness as crimes against humans. Moreover, the punishments should reflect their severity." For more details on her new book, Animal…Continue
