Just two years ago, gray wolves lost federal protection in Idaho. Since then 859 of these beautiful animals have been killed in aggressive, sometimes brutal hunting and trapping seasons. And now the state wants to take the carnage a step further: This holiday season Idaho is allowing a privately sponsored wolf and coyote “derby.”

Just after Christmas, on Dec. 28 and 29, Idaho will host a cruel contest where hunters will compete to see who can kill the biggest wolf and bag the most wolves and coyotes over the weekend. This derby is hosted by an Idaho sportsmen’s group and approved by the state.

As if these disgusting contests weren’t bad enough, a hired gunman’s being paid to hole up in a taxpayer-funded cabin until he slaughters two entire wolf families residing in the national forest. The U.S. Forest Service gave him permission to be on public lands for the hunt, and he’s funded by the Idaho Department of Fish and Game ostensibly because killing these wolves could boost the elk population for human hunters.

Take urgent action now to contact Idaho agency heads, elected officials and business leaders to express your outrage over the planned wolf- and coyote-killing contest and oppose the hired wolf-killing gunman in Idaho’s wilderness area.

It’s a fact: Life at SeaWorld is hell for whales, dolphins, and other marine animals who are kept imprisoned there day after day, year after year.

Since the release of Blackfish—which led eight musical acts, including Willie Nelson and the Barenaked Ladies, to cancel their SeaWorld concerts—tens of thousands of compassionate people like you and even several publications, including the Los Angeles Times, have spoken out against the cruel abusement park.

SeaWorld knows that its days are numbered. In a last-ditch effort to increase attendance (by slashing ticket prices), the marine park has partnered with Groupon.

Unless Groupon wants to be associated with a delusional company that imprisons orcas in small concrete pools for their entire lives, the company needs to end this deal immediately.

Please contact Groupon and urge it to cancel this deal right away!

we enter the world with innocence,
unschooled in callous and cruel.
time goes on and sadly we learn,
this world and its bass ackwards rules.
we also learn the joy of free will
and taking the road we choose.
if the path is toward kindness,
compassion and caring.
we can never lose.
so come on board, there
is plenty of room.
the ship of true humanity is
sailing.
if we stand together,
as a team.
there will be no room
for failing.
