Palm oil is the #1 cause of rainforest destruction in Indonesia, the only remaining habitat of the orangutan.

One organization has the power to stop hundreds of companies from using palm oil linked to rainforest destruction. Tell it to act! http://bit.ly/IJblja

GREAT SUCCESS STORIES: What better way to end our week-long celebration of the Endangered Species Act than with the very species that were saved from extinction! http://ow.ly/ruLYq

From whooping cranes to black-footed ferrets, gray whales to gray wolves, the ESA has been one of America's most successful laws. Although endangered species still face many threats, we now have the legal tool to protect them thanks to the ESA!

DID YOU KNOW? Hawai`i has more endangered species per square mile than any other place on the planet? In fact, 1 out of every 3 imperiled species in America is located on the Hawaiian Islands. http://ow.ly/rL1Pn

One of these is the Hawaiian monk seal, among the world's rarest marine mammals. To help the seals recover, our attorneys succeeded in shutting down fishing in its habitat, which is now giving the seals a fighting chance to survive.

Check out the things we're doing to protect the island paradise of Hawai`i from losing its native species >> http://ow.ly/rL1Pn Click SHARE or LIKE and share your thoughts below.

Pygmy elephants are losing their precious habitat because of destruction caused by palm oil plantations.

►Help us transform the palm oil industry into a sustainable one, and protect the pygmy elephants: http://bit.ly/1csGAw9

Comments: A donation site is included for those interested in helping the fight.

When palms are cut it is only logical that corporations should replant palms and wait for maturity before cutting them again. WTF?

I see these squirrels all the time in my back yard.

"The western gray squirrel (Sciurus griseus) is the largest tree squirrel native to the Pacific Northwest. Once common in suitable habitat on both sides of the Cascade Mountains, western gray squirrels in Washington have declined over the last century and their range has diminished. Distribution of western gray squirrels in Washington currently is limited to only 3 locations: south Puget Trough, the North Cascades (Chelan and Okanogan Counties), and south-central Washington (primarily Klickitat County)."

@trying2learn,
I personally think corporations are deliberately poisoning them so they can abscond with national park lands at a cheap price...

Did not know where else to post this. It made me sad. Sad

Facebook, Comment to photo:
Yes, I know this is off topic, but I felt compelled to share it, as the message is strong, and we are a compassionate group.

According to Snopes, and contrary to 'Facebook legend' this photo did NOT mark the end of Matador Torero Alvaro Munera's career. However, he did collapse on this day, in remorse and in mid-fight, when he realized he was having to prompt this otherwise gentle beast to fight.

*Even grievously wounded, the bull did not attack Munera.*

I posted this to show the beauty of this animal. Perhaps it will trigger some to stop and think about the welfare of our non-human species. I don't know. It would be nice to think Munera stopped after this fight. It wasn't until later he decide to become an activist against bullfighting.

Thanks to all here who provided more information about the photo. -LS
