Activists Uniting For The Benefit of Animals

World Parrot Refuge in Coombs, BC Volunteers

First off, just a reminder to call the Japanese embassy as much as you can, thanks to everyone who called last week, the murderers in Taiji were pressured to release 20 pilot whales.  They killed the rest of the 75 whales, so think of what would happen if everyone was calling the embassy!!!  Please keep calling!

Second, we are happy to announce the date of our first work party at the World Parrot Refuge in Coombs BC!!  For those of you who haven’t been it is one of the most amazing sanctuaries in the world!  More than 900 rescued parrots, many of them come from abusive situations, and the WPR gives them a place to live the rest of their lives in a natural free flying 23,000 SQ foot heated indoor jungle.  It is HUGE and they are always short on volunteers!!

Here is the facebook group for the event,

Where:  World Parrot Refuge, Coombs BC

When: Saturday May 28th, 11-3pm

What to bring and how to get there:  Please bring a vegan gluten free snack to share (mini-potluck) and if you need a ride please contact us, we can even pick people up from the ferry!!

We will be doing lots of landscaping, gardening, cage scrubbing, and general tidying up, all the things the wonderful volunteers never have time to take care of!!

This is will a fantastic afternoon and there will be plenty of time to interact with the parrots, bring your gardening gloves!!



International Day of Action against WINNERS!

On Monday May 30TH we are calling on activists all over the world to call the Winners head office and ask them to adopt a fur free policy for their fall collection.

With 211 stores Canada wide, most Canadians have no idea that Winners is one of the largest, if not THE largest retailers of cheap cruel fur trimmed products in the country.

WINNERS sells fur from many different species of animals like rabbits, mink and foxes, ALL raised on cruel fur farms in several different countries including Canada, Greece, Finland and China.

We want Winners to go fur free this fall, here is the number to the head office:


Please mark your calendars!! Thank you for taking action!
