  • species
  • Recent studies indicate that traits thought to be uniquely human have been identified in animal species as well, thus fundamentally challenging our reasoning for treating them differently. (huffingtonpost.com)
  • Scientists are enlisting the help of pigeons, parrots, crows, jays, and other species to disprove the notion that human cognitive abilities are beyond those of other animals. (the-scientist.com)
  • farms
  • When you support a zoo that treats its animals well, when you specifically choose products that have not been tested on animals, and when you support farms that engage in humane practices, your actions have a tremendous impact on the lives of animals around the world. (thepetitionsite.com)
  • ourselves
  • Instead of capitalizing on the differences between animals and ourselves, we should utilize opportunities like these to celebrate our similarities. (huffingtonpost.com)
  • If we identify ourselves only through the differences among us, we lead ourselves down a path that advocates different treatment based on arbitrary differences, justifications that were frequently used to promote racial segregation and human-rights violations. (huffingtonpost.com)
  • take
  • It's time to take action on animal rights. (thepetitionsite.com)

  • Given the health risks involved in transporting chimpanzees so far, and the fact that Wingham is not an accredited zoo and has said it might breed them - after they've already given so much of their lives - it makes more sense to send these animals to one of the U.S. sanctuaries that has offered to take them.

  • live
  • In its place, a system of open grazing should be implemented, where animals are fed their natural diet without hormones and are given open space to roam, allowing them to exhibit their natural behavior and live longer, healthier lives. (huffingtonpost.com)
