Spirit of Heightened Animal Awareness

Animal symbolism is important to holiday customs. A greater growth in awareness towards animal preservation helps to maintain the harmony of the holidays for all of us.

Main Article: Animals and Holiday Symbolism

A Call To Enlightened Action:

Sometimes our lives become so overrun with challenges that we find ourselves looking at life through tunnel vision without actually realizing it. This holiday season pledge to actively think about three ways to positively contribute to the successful sustainability of all living entities. Together we have the ability to bring the planet that we share back into a more harmonious state of being.

Make your goal to achieve one of your three contributions every four months. If each one of us were to take this pledge, we would globally achieve permanent positive change in our lifetimes and successfully instill this mentality into future generations. This would forever alter our path to one of hope over fear and bring us towards an evolved plain of existence rather than one of futility.

Life is not fleeting. It lives on in all of us. May you find peace, purpose, and harmony in whatever holiday celebration you choose.

Truck Stop Tiger Initiative

Louisiana retracts their decision to quash a permit that allows a tiger to be caged at a truck stop. The Animal Legal Defense Fund organization goes back to the batting plate for the tiger while the permit holder says he will do whatever it takes to break their efforts.

Free Tony The Tiger From Indentured Servitude

Tell US Wildlife Department To Protect Generic Tigers

Tell the U.S. government to take measures to protect generic tigers in existence like “Tony” and make it illegal to inbreed tigers. Keep your comment short and to the point. Something to this effect:

Humans are interfering with the existence of the endangered tiger species and so long as this inbreeding loophole remains open people will continue to exploit the animal usurping the intent of the Endangered Species Act.

It is unreasonable to expect wildlife rescue organizations to be responsible for all of the abusive fallout, while having to keep pace with deliberately aggressive and irresponsible breeding practices without the support of their government.

If this issue remains unaddressed the United States is facing dilemmas similarly found within the domesticated animal shelters, only on a much larger and far more dangerous scale.
