LynxProtect National Forests And The Animals Who Live There

The Obama administration has proposed setting aside vital protections, that have existed since Ronald Reagan was president, for the habitat of lynx and other imperiled wildlife in our national forests. These magnificent landscapes support diverse ecosystems and an incredible array of animals including antelope, bison, bighorn sheep, elk and trout. In all, our national forests provide habitat for more than 5,000 animal species and more than 10,000 plant species. Click here to send a quick e-mail to President Obama and Vice President Biden, urging them to protect this habitat. Thanks to Defenders of Wildlife for providing this information.

BLM photoSubmit Comments On BLM's Wild Horse Strategy

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) has released its "Proposed Strategy for Future Management of Wild Horses and Burros." The plan offers some encouraging language but continues the business-as-usual approach to wild horses with the proposed removal of 32,800 mustangs from the range over the next five years, increasing the population in holding to nearly 52,000 horses. Just 32,000-36,000 would be left in the wild.

Wild horses and burros should remain free in the wild with their families. There is no immediate danger to them on the range, as the horses being rounded up are fit and healthy, not starving as the BLM would have us believe. And taxpayers can no longer afford to pay for the mass mustang removals. It is far more cost-effective to leave horses on the range, where taxpayers do not have to pay to house and feed them, than to round them up by the thousands and warehouse them at taxpayer expense.

Help us build a strong public record in support of real change for this broken federal program. Let's secure a safe future for wild horses and burros - click here to send an e-mail now!

old circus elephantWater For Elephants Outreach Friday April 22

The movie version of the blockbuster novel about a circus, Water for Elephants, starring Reese Witherspoon and Robert Pattinson, is set for release on April 22. Because the movie's producers chose to use real performing animals for the film, which IDA vehemently opposes, we hope that you will join us outside the theaters to let movie-goers know that the circus cruelty portrayed in the film is very real and continues today.

Please click here to learn more about IDA's position on this film. And help IDA bring attention to the suffering endured by animals in the circus by getting friends together to leaflet outside a movie theater showing Water for Elephants on April 22. We will provide leaflets for distribution. To order or for more information:

Hope Bohanec MeatOut 2011MeatOut 2011 - IDA Offers Anti-War Protesters A Taste Of Non-Violent Cuisine

IDA teamed with Farm Animal Rights Movement (FARM) for this year's MeatOut, feeding vegan sandwiches to 1,000 people in San Francisco! On Saturday, March 19, we had a fun vegan feed-in at the annual San Francisco peace rally calling for an end to war. We served yummy vegan sandwiches, distributed brochures about the vegan diet, and spread the message that peace begins on your plate!

The San Francisco event featured sandwiches made with Tofurky slices, lettuce, tomato, and a non-dairy cheese spread. With every sandwich, rally-goers received a brochure explaining how a vegan diet can reduce heart disease, stroke, cancer and diabetes, save animals from suffering on factory farms and in slaughterhouses, and conserve precious environmental resources. Reports say the sandwiches were tasty and very appreciated.

Last year, the San Francisco Board of Supervisors signed a ground-breaking resolution officially naming every Monday to be Veg Day. They encouraged all San Francisco residents to consider cutting the meat habit one day a week. In this spirit, rally-goers got a taste of vegan versions of meat and cheese to reduce animal products in their diet.
