Power in Numbers

_mg_5029

This March, we reached a milestone in organizing. There are now more than 50,000 people taking action. More than 50,000 people that are committed to protecting wildlife, wild places, and the noble, moral law that keeps them safe: the Endangered Species Act. Thank you!

    Kinship

    I am the voice of the voiceless;
    Through me the dumb shall speak,
    Till the deaf world’s ear be made to hear
    The wrongs of the wordless weak

    From street, from cage and from kennel,
    From stable and zoo, the wail
    Of my tortured kin proclaims the sin
    Of the mighty against the frail

    Oh, shame on the mothers of mortals,
    Who have not stooped to teach
    Of the sorrow that lies in dear, dumb eyes,
    The sorrow that has no speech.

    The same force formed the sparrow
    That fashioned man the king;
    The God of the whole gave a spark of soul
    To furred and to feathered thing.

    And I am my brother’s keeper,
    And I will fight his fight,
    And speak the word for beast and bird,
    Till the world shall set things right.

    Ella Wheeler Wilcox

    It is so wonderful to see many people caring for animals, we really have to save all animals if possible. It is so very very sad to see them being used as sport, clothing, footwear, cosmetics, experiments and other. There should be many more animals on this planet, let us keep speaking up for them.

  3. Hilda Marija says:

    I am so pleased to read the replies from good people from many countries who believe in protecting animals and the environment. We cannot let greed destroy our precious planet -
    and deny the right to live in peace to all living beings. Also thank you Ljerka, so glad to see
    a fellow Croatian, as I am one too, but a US citizen. Keep up with the good work! And thank
    you to Barbara Warner for pointing out the barbarism of horse killing and the disregard of the
    law regarding wild horses (Mustangs) in the U.S. I also support the ISPMB.

  4. Gina Weiss says:

    We are not alone. People from all over the world has join us in this cause. We will continue to be a voice for the voiceless and will teach the future generations to protect all creatures big and small. I am honored to be a part of this, and I thank you for making me such.

  5. Elinor Hawke-Szady says:

    Hello from Canada. It is SO IMPORTANT to protect ALL species for future generations. We have to protect them – they cannot protect themselves from us – only we as humans can protect them. We as humans must teach EVERYONE to respect all mammals, amphibians, reptiles, birds, insects, and the like. Thank you for all the work you do. I am happy to be a donor and a member of your organization.

    • Jo. Unrau says:

      I also am Canadian & believe very strongly in protecting all animals & our environment. No more pipelines, no fracking, no more destroying our planet for $$$. & no killing & torturing animals of any kind.

  6. Noemi Rodoni says:

    I am very happy being part of your campaings because I feel all animals are of my concern
    specially if they’re in danger wherever they are-
    Hugs,
    Noemi-

    Fifty thousand is good but we are going to need fifty million to fight all the hunters, corrupt governments and wildlife haters whose only mission is to destroy. We will not give up but I think we have a hard road ahead of us and we will need great determination and fortitude. This really is a fight for good against evil.

  8. Therese says:

    Wonderful and so encouraging. Together we are strong and can win against animal cruelty.
    As some people already mentioned, this is not only US achievement, but from the people all over the world.

  9. April says:

    I hope our numbers are in the millions, & I hope we find a way to stop those humans who would kill species after species with no care to future generations. As human numbers increase the world animals numbers decrease, this has to be solved.

  10. Liz Cook says:

    I am certain that nearly all species are threatened by our current actions. A lot of us believed just a few decades ago that more knowledge with respect to environmental research, especially in the field of ecology, would result in saner, more sustainable actions, even among the most powerful exploiters. Instead we have seen the opposite.

    It is clear that knowledge alone is not enough and that we can not depend on decision makers to use it to protect even the fundamental life sustaining systems. It truly is on every wise and caring person to work together to change the course we are on. We can do this by protecting and recovering endangered species and preventing others from becoming endangered because, in so doing, we preserve those systems that life itself depends on.

  11. Bob Deacy says:

    I hope to sustain my committment to helping endangered species and all species for the rest of my life. I don’t think we can ever be complacent. There are too many forces in the world that would destroy these wonderful creatures and so I believe that we have a moral, ethical, and spiritual obligation to prevent harm to our fellow creatures and to do all we can for them.

    Let it be your goal to ATTEMPT to travel through life gently , leaving your World and it’s inhabitants as undisturbed as you possibly can.can.Embrace environmentalism in your daily life. . . .

  13. ajax eastman says:

    While animals may be the reason most people are motivated to join the Endangered Species Coalition, let us not forget that there are many more herbs and other species that are also in need of preservation.
    Let’s all give a rousing cheer to Brock Evans, the visionary behind this much need endeavor! And of course to all the staff for their tireless work.

  14. Lene says:

    we go together into the future, the hope for a world with lots of love and care for animals, people and nature.

  15. Barbara Warner says:

    This gives hope. One species being overlooked are our native,American wild horses. The 1971 Wild Free Roaming Horse and Burro Act was supposed to protect and preserve them. However, the Bureau of Land Management under the Dept of Interior as well as the US Forest Service is managing them for extinction. Less than 18,0000 are still free yet removals are still going on. This as a NAS study found is causing a raise in birth rates as the horses try to keep from being wiped out. 50,000 are in holding and some are going to slaughter. See http://www.ProtectMustangs.org and www. ISPMB.org for information and the truth. Do not believe the BLM propaganda . The millions of cattle have destroyed the range and riparian areas as proven by the 1990-91 Government Accounting Office study and not the few thousand wild horses. Oil drilling,mining and now fracking are ruining the water and range of our public lands.

  19. Haydée says:

    Qué bueno ver estas imágenes.
    Es necesario salvar el planeta. Proteger las especies.
    Me duele el desplazamiento y extinción de los animales.
    No podemos permitir que se siga destruyendo la naturaleza.

  20. Razia Frank says:

    Danke für Ihre großartige Leistung und die bisherigen Erfolge. Ich wünsche uns den Tag, an welchem alle Menschen wissen, daß die Tiere fühlen wie wir und danach handeln und nie mehr ein Tier sinnlos gequält wird.

    • Brenda Boldt says:

      Yes, you are right Christina, it is not only American people that support this fight! In the video it states people from every corner of America! Well , I am Canadian and I fight along side! We all must fight to protect those that cannot speak for themselves! Namaste <3

    • Ljerka says:

      Indeed, not only Americans, but from all over the world!
