UPDATE: Boycott Travel to Alaska Wed. 7 March 2006

FRIENDS OF ANIMALS: "BOYCOTT IS BACK" -- NEW AD CAMPAIGN STARTS 13 MARCH 2006

Darien, Conn -- Friends of Animals renewed a call to the public to boycott travel to Alaska, as more than 81 wolves have been shot from aircraft to make moose hunting easier this winter. The animal advocacy group's new ad campaign starts next week with hard-hitting ads to appear in USA Today, and six or more magazines and widely circulated newspapers.
The recharged boycott follows a ruling by the Superior Court of Alaska that the state's aerial wolf-shooting scheme is invalid. Rather than stop the gunning, the state's Board of Game hastily made up new rules and started offering permits again.
Supporters worldwide can endorse the Alaska tourism boycott by joining the "I'd rather be here than in Alaska" campaign. Photographs of boycott supporters holding signs reading "Boycott Alaska," "I'd rather be here than in Alaska," and similar statements will be featured on the webpage www.boycott-alaska.org .
The idea, brought to the Friends of Animals' blog (Web-based log on the site www.friendsofanimals.org) by Francis Murray of Juneau, Alaska, follows a lawsuit brought by Friends of Animals and individual plaintiffs which temporarily halted Alaska wolf control in January.
On the 17th of January, the airborne hunting permits were recalled following the Superior Court ruling that the Board of Game failed to follow its own regulations. With the permits withdrawn and the hunter-pilot teams grounded, the boycott on travel to Alaska was suspended.

Needless to say, the Board did not appreciate being told "No." On the 29th of January, the Board called an "emergency" meeting. In addition to repealing all requirements and limitations that apply generally to wolf control -- the bases for the Court ruling that the aerial wolf control scheme was invalid -- the Board also barred related public notice and input.

One-hundred fifty-seven gunners and pilots may now get back in the air, chase wolves to exhaustion, and then shoot them. Having already killed moe than 502 wolves under the airborne hunting permits since 2003, Alaska officials want 400 more dead before 30 April 2006.

Friends of Animals' new webpage unveils the highs and lows where folks would rather be than in Alaska. Pictures are arriving from individuals and groups near iconic landmarks and destinations, lines at local banks and post offices, and packed subway cars.

"I'd Rather Be Here than in Alaska" pictures can be submitted electronically to submissions@friendsofanimals.org

ACTION by FRIENDS OF ANIMALS: I'D RATHER BE HERE THAN IN ALASKA


Hunters in Alaska don't like competing with wolves. So the state has been issuing permits for teams of gunners and pilots to chase wolves from aircraft, then shoot them. This January, the Superior Court of Alaska found the state's aerial wolf-shooting scheme invalid. But rather than stop the gunning, the state's Board of Game hastily made up new rules and the killing of wolves continues!

In response, Friends of Animals is calling for all supporters to BOYCOTT ALASKA www.boycott-alaska.com/ this travel season. In 1992, FoA's BOYCOTT ALASKA campaign stopped a similar aerial program after just 15 days.

Show your support by submitting photographs www.boycott-alaska.com/ of boycott supporters holding signs such as "Boycott Alaska," "I'd rather be here than in Alaska," or "Stop Shooting Wolves." Send a message to the Alaskan government that you won't be spending money in Alaska until it ends its aerial wolf-control program.

Be sure and visit FoA's new website Boycott Alaska www.boycott-alaska.com/ to view the photos already submitted, and to submit a photo of your own.

ACTION
Wolves leave no one indifferent and never fail to ignite human passions. Once marginally protected, now overhunted - such is the sad reality of wolves today. Here, as elsewhere, wolves pay a high price for living near humans.
As the government resolutely encourages the hunting and trapping of wolves, more and more people are defending their cause. Wolves thus inspire many contradictory actions. While some still see them for their skin, others fight for their survival and protection.

Please support our efforts to protect and conserve wolves in Quebec.

THE CLAN DES LOUPS D'AMÉRIQUE DU NORD

Founded in April 1997 and established as a nonprofit organization, CLAN is the first and only organization in Quebec dedicated to protecting wolves. In order to remain completely free and independent, we accept no government aid.

Without exception, all our associates are volunteers.
CLAN's existence depends on the continuing efforts of volunteers who believe in the conservation of wolves and other wildlife and make it a priority.

CLAN's objective is to expose the many aberrations and injustices surrounding the trapping of wolves and eighteen other animal species by trappers in Quebec's wildlife reserves.

By pointing out the discrepancies and gaps in the current system, our site demonstrates, despite the claims made in official statements, the government's inertia, inactivity, and negligence to which wolves often fall victim.

How can we guarantee the protection of wolves if many consider them devious competitors that already occupy too much space and if the government sees them merely as a renewable natural resource that can be hunted and trapped on 98% of Quebec's land?
Are there any simple, effective, and inexpensive ways to properly protect wolves? Yes, of course!

Written in a critical light, the goal of this site is to prohibit, as was the case prior to 1984, all trapping in wildlife reserves in order to ensure the future of Quebec's wolves and other wild animals.

Distributing objective and pertinent information, raising public awareness, expanding protected areas, and ensuring administrative transparency and political willingness are the keys to reaching this goal.

Will Quebec give wolves a fighting chance?
It is my hope that CLAN will be of some small help in ensuring that it does.

MISSION

CLAN believes that to guarantee the future of wolves in Quebec, protected areas must be expanded significantly and policies must be adopted to promote wolf survival.
The government's continuing inaction with regard to this issue has forced us to launch an awareness campaign and a petition to denounce the problems in the current system.
Our cry of alarm extends beyond Quebec's borders because the biodiversity of the whole planet is also at stake.

Wolves leave no one indifferent and never fail to ignite human passions. Once marginally protected, now overhunted - such is the sad reality of wolves today. Here, as elsewhere, wolves pay a high price for living near humans.

THE PROJECT "LOUP LABRADOR"

Our goal is to provide an exciting, creative, and objective snapshot of the fascinating world of Canis lupus labradorius that demonstrates the full biological significance of the species.

Our work will benefit this animal. Improving our knowledge of this particular wolf will give it a better shot at survival.

Wolves are much more than a mere symbol of nature threatened by humans. In less than 40 years, the perception of this supreme scapegoat has shifted from bloodthirsty killer to be exterminated to renewable, natural economic resource to be overexploited. Despite the passing decades, wolves still fall victim to the most ignorant and irresponsible humans.

Urgent action is needed, and we must each take responsibility.

TRAPPING IN QUÉBEC

In Quebec, the government is the sole trustee of wildlife assets because these invaluable resources cannot legally belong to anyone.
Our collective wealth therefore depends primarily on the Act respecting the conservation and development of wildlife (RSQ Section C-61.1).
This act is also administered by Société de la Faune et des Parcs du Québec (FAPAQ) (Wildlife and Parks Corporation of Quebec).

With regard to wildlife, FAPAQ states that its basic responsibilities are

* To conserve and develop this renewable natural resource for the benefit of current and future generations
* To keep wildlife and wildlife-related activities accessible to the public

These responsibilities include all trapping, hunting, and fishing activities in Quebec.
