Nonsense in N.Y., Go Ian Go, Adopt Grinch, and More!
ACT: Tell NY Cook to Stop Hawking Lion Burgers
It's happening again — this time in New York! Call Dave's Pizza and Burger in Albany and tell Dave to stop selling lion burgers! There is no excuse for peddling the flesh of a species who is threatened to the point that Born Free USA has petitioned to have the African lion listed as "endangered." Our year-long undercover investigation into the lion meat trade shows that the supply chain for lion meat is riddled with shady activities and absent oversight. Call Dave (518-453-3695) today and tell him "No Lion Burgers!"

VOTE: Let's Get Born Free Friend on the Radio
Born Free wildlife consultant and long-time compassionate conservationist Ian Redmond is in the running to be nominated for "Desert Island Discs," a British radio show that asks the question, "What eight records would you have with you if stranded on a desert island?" Ian works with Born Free on great apes, elephants, polar bears, and so much more. So take a minute to vote for Ian and let's see what music he enjoys. We wonder if the soundtrack from "Born Free" will be on his list!
