Save The Bees!

by Ryan Murphy

  Bees, our small friends who play a vital role in pollinating the flowers that become the fruits and vegetables we all need to survive, are still under attack, and their numbers are so reduced that extinction is a very real threat to their continued existence. Strong evidence shows that widely-used neonicotinoid insecticides harm bees […]

Stop Pro-Hunting Propaganda Infiltrating Schools!

by Ryan Murphy

  With its cute bear pictures and conservations claims, you might suppose that Bear Trust International is an organization with bears’ best interests at heart. But don’t be fooled.
