World Animal Day

 


We’re celebrating World Animal Day today! On one hand, we adore the amazing creatures that we share our planet with. On the other, today we must reflect on the pain that they face.

Over 28,000 animals are at risk of extinction. And much of this hardship is directly caused by human activity.

We have often written to you about specific creatures and our fears about their path forward. We have talked about the dwindling populations of the gorilla, and the risk of COVID-19 on these marvelous animals. We have contacted you about the adorable pangolin, and how the wildlife trade is decimating the species. We have reached out about our rhinos and elephants, begging you to join our movement to end poaching. But today is not about a single animal or single issue — today serves as a reminder of the importance of our movement holistically.

A very real possibility exists in which so many of the animals we know and love today are not around for future generations.
Help us avoid this reality.

Today is a day for celebration and for reflection. We wish you the best on this World Animal Day,

today from U.S. Senator Bob Casey, Jr. (D. PA) regarding election information in Pennsylvania:

Explaining secrecy envelopes, and other information you need to vote safely this fall

Tuesday, November 3 is the day of the general election, but voting has already begun in Pennsylvania. Voting is a pillar of our democracy and part of our civic duty as American citizens, so I want to make sure you have the resources you need to vote, vote early and vote safely. No matter who you plan to vote for, you can help PA elections run smoothly and make sure your voice is heard by making a plan right now for how you're going to vote.

Register to vote: You can register to vote online, by mail, in person at your county voter registration office or at PennDOT and select other government agencies.

Voting in person: You can vote in person at an assigned polling place near where you live, open 7 AM to 8 PM on Election Day, Tuesday, November 3. If your name is not in the voter roster, you may have the right to vote on a provisional ballot. Poll workers will be available to assist with any questions or concerns on Election Day.

·        The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) issued guidance for safely voting in-person during COVID-19, including: wash your hands before and after, bring and use hand sanitizer, wear a mask, continue social distancing, bring your own blue/black ink pen and vote at off-peak hours such as mid-morning.

Voting by mail: Voting by mail is a safe, secure and legal way for Americans to practice their constitutional right to vote. Any qualified voter may apply for a mail-in ballot. Tuesday, October 27 is the deadline to request your mail-in or absentee ballotTo ensure your ballot is counted, don't wait to send your ballot in, as ballots must be postmarked by 8 PM on Tuesday, November 3 and received by your county election office by 5 PM on Friday, November 6. If you are concerned about USPS delays in delivering mail-in or absentee ballots, you can drop off your ballot at your county election office.

·        IMPORTANT: Be sure to double-check all deadlines at VOTESPA.com to ensure that you have the most up-to-date information. You also must carefully follow the directions on your mail-in or absentee ballot, or your vote will not be counted. This includes marking your ballot in blue or black pen, sealing your ballot in the inner secrecy envelope that says "official ballot" and then placing it in the outer return envelope, sealing it and signing it.

We have so much work to do.

Now, more than ever, flipping the Senate BLUE has to be our priority!

Lindsey Graham wants to fill the Supreme Court with right-wing Republicans to push forward his policies for decades.

If New Jersey donors care about this, they will donate enough to defeat Graham.

Every donation counts, even $5 (worth 450% MORE!). We need $100,000 by the end of the month - can you help?

Happy World Gorilla Day // Button: Help Protect gorillas >>

Our gorillas need our help. On this year’s World Gorilla Day, we ask that you consider supporting our movement to save animals facing extinction (and how you can help us keep these wonderful animals safe).

There are about 1,000 mountain gorillas remaining.
The time to save them from extinction is running out RAPIDLY.

We wrote to you recently with some very, very bad news: Gorilla protection programs are being cut in Africa due to COVID-19’s impact on the global tourism industry. This leaves more and more gorillas susceptible to poaching, like Uganda’s famous mountain gorilla Rafiki (who was recently murdered).

Additionally, the COVID-19 virus threatens our gorillas directly. While no mountain gorillas have become sick yet,
they do share 98% of our DNA and have caught respiratory illnesses from humans in the past.

Poaching and the clearing of forest habitats have pushed the gorilla closer and closer to extinction —
it’s now time for us to step up and get to work saving this amazing animal.

On this World Gorilla Day, the stakes are higher than ever.
So, paul, will you join our movement to save the gorilla?

We’re fighters that don’t give up. Together, we’re going to save gorillas,
