Russia: create the world’s largest marine sanctuary!

Dear friends,

There is one almost completely untouched body of water on our planet -- a magical place where majestic blue whales, penguins, and mysterious squid roam free. 

But this paradise -- the size of Germany, France and the UK combined -- could soon be lost. Hunters have already massacred thousands of endangered whales in Antarctica’s Ross Sea, now massive industrial fishing fleets want to devastate the area. 

But if 24 countries agree, this pristine ocean can become the world’s biggest marine protected area. 23 are finally on board, 1 isn’t -- yet.  

Russia. 

Amazingly, we have a huge insider chance to persuade it to join, right now. Oceans experts have a private event lined up with President Putin’s top advisors and they’ll deliver our petition directly!Add your name: 

https://secure.avaaz.org/en/protect_the_ross_sea_gl_loc/?bRQBCeb&v=75927&cl=9891032162

For years, remoteness has protected the Southern Ocean. But, after overfishing their home waters, high-tech industrial fishing boats are now travelling into this sacred ocean.  

If we win this sanctuary, these mega vessels would be shut out of 1.34 Million km2! It’s unprecedented.  

Our community already helped secure two massive marine protected areas and we know that just as wilderness parks rehabilitate life on land, the same happens in the ocean if our governments create marine reserves and enforce protection laws.  

We can make this happen! After years of blocking, China recently joined the countries supporting Ross Sea protection. Now we just need one more -- let’s build the biggest campaign ever to urge Russia to back the world’s biggest sanctuary -- add your name and forward this email:   

https://secure.avaaz.org/en/protect_the_ross_sea_gl_loc/?bRQBCeb&v=75927&cl=9891032162

Time and again Avaazers say defending our oceans is a top priority. For our climate, for the survival of thousands of precious species. And for something deeper. The ocean covers two thirds of our planet and has a heartbeat that we feel. Antarctica is a shining example of countries working together for conservation and now we can extend that protection to the icy seas around it.

With hope and determination,

Nataliya, Alex, Christoph, Mélanie, Alice, Ricken, Lisa, Fatima and the whole Avaaz team

Want to go vegan but aren't sure how?  Download Vegan Made Easy!  It's got a customizable shopping list, a simple solution for planning healthy meals, app recommendations, nutrition info which is actually easy to understand, and much more :)   The ebook is "Pay What You Want."  That means you can pay whatever you think it will be worth to you. :)

Okay -- I realize that most people in this group are already vegan.  But there is still a lot of very useful info in this book.  Enjoy and I hope you find it very useful.

Sorta. Only with quite the same heavy-duty ethical component, eh? It's kind of like convincing someone to give up being a slave owner? Donno. =oP

About this community

A community of compassionate people, largely vegan and vegetarian, inviting and supporting all persons of conscience. —☆—★—☆—★—☆—★—☆—★—☆—★—☆—★— —GROUP "RULES"— There are no hard and fast rules for deletion of posts, since these sorts of rules are often limiting and easily over-stepped. However, in general we ask that posts be relatable to veganism and inform a discussion of vegan topics. For instance, a post about vegan cosmetics would probably be acceptable, but a post about the application of vegan cosmetics would probably be deleted. We have also deleted: ● Recipes for the sake of the recipes themselves. Rather, posts in the Culinary Conversation category must be "relatable to veganism and inform a discussion of vegan topics" absent of any recipe shared therein (ref: goo.gl/jVrGgG). ● Pictures of animals or food that serve no other purpose (ref. goo.gl/BTP29). ● Posts that are obviously spam and also do not contribute to vegan discussion (though we've been known to let the occasional bit of spam remain if we think it might be topical). ● Posts that are only advertisements from people who do not have an investment in our community or its goals. Please note that we love to see vegans promote themselves, their work and their ethics! However, sometimes that self-promotion comes across as a spammy plea for likes/hits/readership/customers, and we'd rather not see our members treated like potential marks. ● Posts that contain catch-words like 'sustainable' but do not contribute to a discussion of vegan topics. ● Shares of articles, videos, etc., which may be topical, but have been re-posted to the group too many times in too short a period (e.g. multiple repeats in the same day). ● Environmental activism links that don't specifically address vegan topics, unless the author of the post makes the vegan connection in an introduction (this one is tough for us, since environmental activism clearly affects animal welfare, but if we allow environmental activism without the vegan connection, the group suffers from mission creep). ● Humour posts that are not relatable to veganism. We also reserve the right to make judgement calls about individual posts, so the above list should not be taken as finite or delimiting. It's simply an example set of posts we've deleted. Finally, we ask that posts depicting animal violence be prefaced with a warning and linked, and that no pictures of animal violence be posted directly to the community (ref. goo.gl/ZscdpH). While we appreciate the necessity of discussing animal violence in a vegan context and wholeheartedly encourage the conversation, we believe it important that people be given the opportunity to prepare psychologically for these discussions and the images associated with them.

Crime! (possibly graphic)
 
If you are serious about saving animal's please start here don't let your local kill shelter murder these innocent dog's bc they need the cage or bc their time is up. No dog should die just bc they were born. They all deserve a chance at a loving home. Many thanks to those of you who Like me love dog's or, cat's enough to save them from death in these kill shelters.

Or you could criminally prosecute companion pet breeders. It is their fault that shelters "have" to kill. You would rather be killed?

Now if they'd just do something about the rest of the menu....
Social media analysts say online conversations around the veganizeable burger are three times more positive than about the fast-food chain itself.

Food out of thin air?
I wonder - has this already been brought up here?
Aeroponics is a way to grow plants without substrate. Aerofarms claim  that aeroponics use 95% less water than field farming, 40% less than hydroponics, and zero pesticides, yielding 75 times the harvest of field farming per area unit in half the time.

An environmental champion, AeroFarms is leading the way to address our global food crisis by growing flavorful, healthy leafy greens in a sustainable and socially responsible way.
