It’s a day I dread each year: the first blow or bullet landed against a baby seal off Canada's East Coast. It marks the beginning of the world’s largest, intentional slaughter of marine mammals. Our ProtectSeals team is there to document this open-air massacre, and . . .
The Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora meeting ended today, and the results were mixed, I am sorry to say. Still, I am pleased to report that we achieved new or improved protection for dozens of species affected by international trade.
In addition to the enormous gains we made to help billions of animals through our big-picture work in 2009, I was pleased to inventory how much we accomplished, and how many animals we helped, through direct care programs.
