England: ‘Busy’ Cat.



Here are a few pictures of one of our cats ‘Brownie’ – I took these today (25/2) while she was in the office watching me doing things. She just laid on the window sill enjoying the sun coming in through the window. Sleep; Eat; Go Out; Sleep; Eat; Go Out – that is her busy schedule. She is a little sweetie and very much loved.

Regards Mark

Update: Crews Monitoring Entangled Whale

On Feb. 14 a whale watching company spotted a humpback whale tangled in a net, struggling as it swam up the California coast from San Diego. The whale was severely entangled in drift gillnet: a barbaric method of commercial fishing that should not exist. Unfortunately, crews who initially spotted the whale were unable to help the whale which was active at a frantic pace—it was too dangerous to get close to the animal. Now, the Coast Guard and the West Coast Whale Entanglement Response Program are closely tracking the whale to attempt to safely remove the netting. It was last spotted outside of Dana Point. Although the netting still has the right fluke entangled, if appears that whale has been able to discard some of the net. Please email your members of Congress, asking them to support the Driftnet Modernization and Bycatch Reduction Act.



Lebanon: the storks can continue their journey


The way is clear for storks: The first white storks to move north have been sighted in Lebanon.

The day before yesterday, over 100 of the protected birds came to rest in a project area of ​​our partner association Society for the Protection of Nature in Lebanon (SPNL) on the edge of the Bekaa Valley.

This video shows the animals on the snowy afternoon in the highlands of the cedar state.


A team from the “committee against bird murder” specially trained in poaching and (SPNL), together with the police, drove around the sleeping community patrol and ensured the safety of the resting migratory birds.
The fact that the storks were able to continue their flight into the breeding areas the following morning is anything but self-evident – a few years ago the birds would have been attacked at the latest when they left.

Even if there is still a lot to do, our campaign for better migratory bird protection in Lebanon is now showing its first successes.



My comment: Every year the “committee against the bird murder” receives news about massive “stork massacres”, which come mainly from the mountains east of the city of Tripoli in the north of the country.

Much of this information is published by the psychopath poachers themselves, who regularly display “trophy photos” of themselves and their prey in social networks despite the prohibitions.

The videos of the discovered poachers show that automatic rifles – such as Kalashnikovs (!!!)are also regularly used for stork hunting.

Our psychopaths here in Germany are not much better.
Germany’s hunters killed over 820,000 wild boars in the 2017/18 season.
It is the highest result ever.
There was even money for each animal shot, between 50 and 200 euros.
This is called “bounty” in the killer language.

Nevertheless! A crime is not “understood” because another similar or worse one happens somewhere else.
Hunting is and remains murder, regardless of the extent and the nationality.
And every prevent murder to animals makes us happy and brave to continue fighting against this barbaric hobby.

On behalf of the animals, we thank the courageous “bodygards” in Lebanon who saved the lives of the 100 travelers.

My best regards to all, Venus

South Korea: Korean Dogs – 24th February Newsletter. Take Actions.


Korean Dogs – 24th February Newsletter:


A couple of the issues in this newsletter:


New Friendship City Campaigns 
Will Copenhagen and Sintra Speak for the Korean Dogs?

Sister and Friendship City Agreements are formed between two cities with the aim of being mutually beneficial (for trade, cultural exchanges, business links etc., and to foster friendship), and many cities throughout the United States and around the world have such ‘twin cities’ all over South Korea. We can bring the unacceptable practices of South Korea’s dog meat trades to the attention of the relevant City Mayors and their Offices, and to urge them, in the spirit of friendship and for the good of the Korean people, to reach out to their counterparts in South Korea, asking them to enforce their laws and to put an end to the cruel dog and cat meat trades. Click below buttons to take actions today.

“Visit Korea” Facebook Campaign

Money is a major motivator for change. If we impact Korea’s tourism industry, it will help put the pressure on the Korean government to bring an end to their cruel and vile dog and cat meat industry.

We have set up “Visit Korea” sites to help prospective visitors to learn more about Korea to help them make the right decisions. Please visit and “Like”. Feel free to post and comment on the pages. Thank you!
