What kind of protection do they really mean? From the Economic Times (part of the India Times, I think).

An Animal Rights-Protection-Abolitionist Organization

Animal Person

The Coalition to Ban Horse-Drawn Carriages calls itself "an animal rights-protection-abolitionist organization," which I find interesting. The well being of the horses should be the ideal of every organization whose mandate is to put animal protection ideals first - especially when they ask for donations based on that mandate. I've always thought of horse-drawn carriages the way I think about greyhound racing or fur: Most people are against them, so why are they still around?

Possible New Sonar Rules to Protect Marine Life

Critter News

The use of sonar is controversial because of its harmful effects on marine life such as whales. The Navy has been able to get away with using it for "national security" reasons. But there may be rules on their way to help mitigate the damage, at least in the Pacific Northwest. From the Seattle P-I (yep, the online newspaper!). A new set of rules might be in the works for the U.S. Navy's use of sonar off the Washington and Oregon coasts.

Not surprising. On the one hand, there is “the potential for harm to marine mammals,” Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. said Wednesday at a Supreme Court argument over the Navy’s use of sonar in training exercises off the coast of Southern California.

The mama bear was trying to get him back up but she couldn’t and eventually she had to leave him so that she could protect her other cub and herself.

On Foundation Beyond Belief

Here are my initial thoughts, though: "Animal Protection." On the upside, you don't have to give any money to animal protection if your beliefs aren't represented by the choice of groups being supported. Good, as I can learn from others about the pluses and minuses of groups that are new to me, and bad, as (see "Animal Protection") the members might choose a group I wouldn't support. It's officially Day 2 for Foundation Beyond Belief (FBB), and I'm watching carefully.
