The Humane Society is one of the organizations I donate to. Just got a message from it with this information:
In another historic victory, San Francisco voted to ban all sales of fur within its limits. The city’s ban will go into effect in January 2019, pending the mayor’s approval. In the last 6 months alone, Gucci, Michael Kors, Jimmy Choo, Furla and Versace have announced they are going fur-free. In a similar vein, India has joined 37 other countries, including the United States, to ban the trade in seal skins and other products of commercial seal hunts for animal welfare or conservation reasons. HSI and our partner groups have been able to reduce commercial sealing in Canada by as much as 90 percent in recent years, sparing nearly three million seals. These victories mark a milestone in a global war against fur that is gaining momentum with each passing week.
I wonder if anyone in the forum is interested in trying to use technology to improve the lives of our fellow creatures on this earth. I don’t know how this would be done, except maybe to use drones to discover animal abuse. If anyone wants to discuss this topic, I’m all ears
