Rhesus monkeyThank You For Responding For The Lovelace Respiratory Research Institute Monkeys And Beagles

Earlier this week, we sent you an alert about monkeys and beagles at Lovelace Respiratory Research Institute (LRRI) in Albuquerque, New Mexico. So many of you e-mailed and called LRRI on the animals' behalf that LRRI President and CEO Robert W. Rubin called IDA headquarters, had a long conversation with our founder Elliot M. Katz, DVM, and then sent us a written statement. Thank you for your swift, powerful, and encouraging response, which no doubt caused LRRI to engage in dialogue about the animals with IDA.

We are in the process of assessing LRRI's statement, and will report our conclusions to you soon. In the meantime, please stop calling or e-mailing LRRI. Thank you for your quick response and for the difference you make for animals everywhere. We would not be able to help so many animals without your continuing commitment, activism, and support.

elephants and babyAgony And Ivory - Help Wild Elephants Now

July's Vanity Fair features a must-read article by investigative journalist Alex Shoumatoff detailing the current state of the ivory trade and its deadly affect on the wild elephants of Africa. His travels take him from African wildlife preserves and the brave conservationists who fight for elephants, to Asia, where ivory is highly prized by China's booming "suddenly wealthy" class, which is as numerous as the entire population of Japan.

Until a ban on ivory sales in 1989, the global ivory trade threatened to wipe out Africa's elephants in the 1970s and 1980s, reducing the continent's population of elephants from about 1.3 million to fewer than 600,000 today. At the height of the slaughter, it is believed that 70,000 elephants a year were killed continent-wide. Today it is estimated that in their 37 African range states, elephants are being killed at the rate of 100 a day, and their ivory illegally exported to Asia. Though that's about half the number killed in the '70-'80s, Shoumatoff reminds us that today there are only half as many elephants left.

You can help by making a donation to IDA's Elephant Protection Fund. In addition to advocating for elephants in captivity, IDA acts for their wild kin, including providing direct assistance to the Amboseli Trust for Elephants with a grant for anti-poaching efforts; funding radio collars for calves who were rescued from the cruel elephant-back safari trade and reintroduced into the wild; and mobilizing our supporters to successfully fight the export of young elephants and other wildlife from Zimbabwe to a zoo in North Korea.

Read Agony and Ivory in Vanity Fair, then take a stand for elephants by donating to IDA's Elephant Protection Fund. Together, we can help elephants survive.

South Korean bus funded by IDAIDA Funds South Korean Activists Protecting Dogs And Cats

IDA's partnerships with South Korean activists are creating very effective outreach for the dogs and cats of South Korea. With your donations, we helped fund a bus to travel the streets of Seoul during “the dog-eating days” in July and August. Your donations are also helping transform a vehicle into a large rescue van to travel the country. So you are helping fund two vehicles - one for education, one for rescue. Click here to read more, see photos of the outreach bus, and get involved on August 16, the International Day of Action for South Korean Dogs and Cats.
