Pedals Captured a Nation

To memorialize all the bears who have been victims of the NJ Division of Fish and Wildlife's lethal "management" and to help fund our continuing bear protection work, we are selling these exclusive charms. The charm features Pedals, whose killing sparked the same outrage that was felt after Cecil the lion was killed. To read more and order yours, click here.

And the Circus Bans Keep Coming!

APLNJ's political arm - League of Humane Voters of New Jersey - has been working to ban the use of wild animals in circuses in New Jersey. There is a state bill addressing a ban on elephants, but APLNJ is looking to protect ALL wild animals. We're pleased to anounce that there are now bans on the use of wild animals in circuses in Bergen, Cumberland, Hudson and Passaic counties. Additionally, Jersey City banned wild animals in circuses not only on public lands but also on private lands. Want your county or town to be next? Contact us.

Legislation Banning Traps in NJ - Your Action Needed

NJ Senate Bill S2750 (Senator Ray Lesniak) and A4407 (Assemblyman Daniel Benson) would ban the manufacture, sale, possession, importation, transportation, or use of any trap that is a spring-loaded device that restrains an animal by capturing the foot, leg, or other body part, including an enclosed foothold type trap or any other type trap that uses a jaw, arm, bar, cable, or wire to grasp or pin the animal’s foot, leg, or other body part. Please write to your legislators to support this bill. READ MORE

Senator Lesniak Introduced Pedals' Law

BEAR HUNTS:

  1. DO NOTHING TO PROTECT PUBLIC SAFETY

  2. DO NOTHING TO PREVENT INCIDENCES AND COMPLAINTS

  3. ARE RECREATIONAL TROPHY HUNTS

Governor Christie, New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection, New Jersey Division of Fish and Wildlife, New Jersey Fish and Game Council, and bear hunters should be held liable for any incidences involving black bears because they have failed to support and implement Bear Smart initiatives.

WHAT WORKS:

  1. PUBLIC EDUCATION - PEOPLE NEED TO KNOW HOW TO BEHAVE RESPONSIBLY IN BEAR HABITAT. 

  2. GARBAGE CONTAINMENT

  3. ATTRACTANT CONTROL

Huh? A NON-hunting license? You bet! It's a great conversation starter. It gives you the opportunity to let others know how wildlife in our state is under the lethal authority of a state agency comprised of hunters/fishers/trappers and that they are backed by the gun and ammunition industries. Support our work fighting for wildlife in New Jersey by ordering your NON-Hunting License TODAY! Learn more about it.
