Please click on and sign the following two actions:

1. International Community Demands Protection and Justice for the Danube Delta wild horses

2. Speak up to save Hawaiian monk seals



1. Background | From Change

The international community is outraged with the news of the bloody massacre of thousands of wild horses native of the Danube Delta in Romania. Corrupt local Tulcea officials have grossly overstepped their authority and waged a bloody war on these indigenous animals protected by international law. Tulcea has slaughtered over 1,000 of these wild horses with less than 500 of them remaining. Please join us in growing this petition which is addressed to local and international authorities with the power to take immediate measures to protect these horses. Thank you for lending your voice for justice for the wild horses of the Danube Delta!

2. Background | From Change

Take action now to speak up for the world’s most endangered marine mammal—the Hawaiian monk seal.  Poised to gain new habitat protections, the seal’s possibility of recovery just stepped up a notch.   These protections will ensure that monk seals have habitat to thrive on, and will also protect our beaches for surfers, fishers, and all ocean-lovers.

Threatened by rising seas and disappearing food, Hawaiian monk seals are teetering on the brink of extinction.  There are only about 1,000 seals left, and they need your help. Protecting habitat can reduce threats to monk seals because it ensures that coastal development will not harm monk seal habitat.  Protecting the monk seals’ habitat also means these projects will not be allowed to interfere with beach access or degrade ocean quality.

While declining in their historical habitat in the Northwestern Hawaiian Islands, a string of low-lying atolls  in the Pacific, Hawaiian monk seals are increasingly inhabiting and giving birth to healthy pups in the main Hawaiian Islands.  This means that habitat protection on O`ahu, Kauai, Maui, Moloka`i, and other islands will make a big difference by providing a refuge for monk seals.

The federal government has proposed to protect 11,000 square miles of habitat for Hawaiian monk seals. Sign the petition to support the proposal to designate Hawaiian monk seal critical habitat.
