STOP THE KILLING OF GREAT WHITE SHARKS IN NZ

HOLDING OUT FOR A HERO It is not illegal to accidentally catch GWS but it should be released alive & unharmed. Reported to DOC & Ministry of Primary Industries as soon as possible. With technology these days I am sure that a month or two later is not as soon as possible. If the Shark is dead it should be landed for scientific research. This is not happening. Due to FEAR, miss information, a lot of emotion, sightings, encounters and media interviews all being held at the South Sea’s hot

Save the 29 trees lining Ladies Mile Highway, Queenstown, NZ

Please sign this petition to save the 29 trees lining Ladies Mile Highway in Queenstown from being cut down. The Delta Power Company says they need to be cut down as they are growing in to overhead powerlines.  Surely there is a better solution to this such as moving the lines or putting them underground. The trees create one of the most elegant approaches to any town in New Zealand. Click to read the news article:  http://www.odt.co.nz/source/mountain-scene/372038/cutting-trees-would-be-crass-

Ban Vegans extorting animals for monetary gain

I'm tired of self righteous vegans protesting everything.   I don't care that they only want to eat vegetables. That's fine, but don't use animals and emotive language to gather revenue and brainwash people with false information. If you'd like to see an end to a minority of animal activists abusing animals in such ways as putting a defenseless goat in a car with a dog resulting in the goat being mauled, thousands of "rescued" and "saved" animals being euthanized because they don't find homes, a

Fund Immunotherapy In New Zealand

Stop the witch hunt on Principal B.B Isaacs

This petition is in aid of a principal who has served the WCED and his school for more than 30 years. Mr Brian Isaacs has had many previous altercations with the WCED.  But with the ever changing Department, it has come to a point where Mr Isaacs has been brought up on random nonsensical charges during the year. This has kept him out of school, thus reducing the amount of time he is able to spend in the classroom, teaching, or just being at the school, as its leader. Please support a man who be

Mr. Leahy's intention of showing this film was to warn students of their treatment of others. In other words, he was asking his students to think outside of the box and consider treating people the way you wish to be treated. Although he didn'

National Orchestra of Belgium

Petition to support the continued existence of the National Orchestra of Belgium   As the result of politics, our National Orchestra is threatened with extinction in the near future.

Save the Hamilton Tiger from euthanasia.

While it is a very sad day for the family of the keeper who has died in Hamilton, NZ. I do not want to see an innocent animal put to death because the keeper did not follow procedures and take all necessary precautions before entering the enclosure of a wild animal. I feel this accident was caused by over familiarity, and is not the animals fault, therefore the tiger should not be euthanized. Please sign this portion to save the Hamilton zoo Tiger. http://i.stuff.co.nz/national/72226055/Tiger-k
