Etsy Will No Longer Sell Products Made From Endangered Animals!

Filed under: Retail TherapyEndangeredFur

etsy will stop allowing sale of animal products

If you're looking to buy a brand new fur coat on Etsy, then you're out of luck!

For a long time, the popular online marketplace has been the perfect place for people to buy and sell homemade goods.

But the website recently announced they would no longer allow the sale of products made from endangered or threatened species of animals!

That means any product containing fur, ivory, teeth, or bones of any animal protected by the US Endangered Species Act is strictly prohibited! The site will also ban the sale of anything made from threatened animals, like gorillas, bears, and jaguars!

We DEFINITELY think this is a good move if it discourages people from hunting endangered species for a profit, but it will be interesting to see how it affects the site overall.

And don't worry, guys. You can still buy all of the Cabbage Patch Kids wigs you want! LOLz!

Disney Celebrates Earth Day With New Vid Series!

Filed under: DisneyAnimal RightsAmazing

It is no coincidence that the Disney Worldwide Conservation Fund was created on the same day as Earth Day - April 22nd.

Since then, the corporation has generously donated $20 million towards programs that support animals.

That's a lot of bread! We know those animals appreciate it!

To celebrate their own anniversary, the Disney corporation is producing a series of videos called Stories From The Field.

In these videos, Disney fans will learn about endangered species from representatives from Disney!

The first video is very magical indeed!

Ch-ch-check it out by watching it (above) !!!

Customs Agents Save Over 2700 Endangered Animals From Being Eaten

Over 2700 endangered animals, worth over $100,000 were rescued by Thai customs agents during transport.

Among the animals were various turtles, king cobras and a civet.

All of the nearly 3000 animals were intended for human consumption! They were to be eaten!

Some Asian cultures think that eating literally endangered animals can "boost their sexual power."

That's pathetic and disgusting.

Thank goodness for those customs agents.
