Petition – Save the SEALIFE London Aquarium penguins

The Gentoo penguins at the Sea Life London Aquarium are kept in a small underground room, with no natural light and completely unacceptable quality of life.

Lex Croucher started this petition after visiting the Sea Life London Aquarium and seeingthe conditions that their Gentoo penguins are kept in. Kept underground, with a tiny area to live and swim and no natural light, they’re clearly very unhappy and need to be moved.  Continue reading

Petition | Bring Claire, who has autism and challenging behaviour, back home to Swansea | Change.org

via Petition | BRING CLAIRE, WHO HAS AUTISM AND CHALLENGING BEHAVIOUR, BACK HOME TO US IN SWANSEA, WALES WHERE SHE WANTS TO BE WITH US, HER FAMILY. | Change.org.

Our daughter Claire, 20, has autism. Sometimes, when Claire is anxious or stressed her behaviour can deteriorate and last year the hospital unit she was in placed her on section 3 under the Mental Health Act. Despite her not staying with us she could still see us when she wanted, and she came home to us 262 times out of 325 days where we accessed the community and we took her swimming, ate out together and she loved playing with her puppy Jonjo. She even did the Race for Life on July 27th in Swansea. It’s not always been easy but she was close to us and happy to be able to come home as regularly as she could. She and her sister and brother had a fantastic relationship here, and all care so much for each other.

At the end of July we received some news which would rip our family apart. The health board said that they didn’t have the facilities to care for Claire in Swansea anymore and moved her over 200 miles away to a unit in Brighton – that’s why we have this petition to get Claire back home in Swansea, close to her family.

It now takes us over five hours each-way to visit Claire. When we get there we are just allowed a two-hour supervised visit. It is upsetting, heartbreaking and completely exhausting, especially for Claire’s brother and sister.

 A plea to The Russian Federation to bring an end to all the atrocities that bears endure in Russia. To change their laws and regulations to prevent the further suffering and death of these bears.

The bear is an iconic symbol for Russia but how ironic when bears are made to perform in circuses by doing degrading acts such as juggling with their feet. tightrope walking, riding bikes and being dressed in outrageous clothing. Bear Baiting training camps  are common in parts of  Russia whereby a bear will have its teeth and claws removed, they are then tethered to a post whereby they are subjected to repeated attacks by dogs. The hunting and poaching of bears for the illegal trade in their body parts, Also using bears in public places for tourists to have their photo’s taken with them.
