Save the lionsPoachers are chopping off faces and paws off lions to sell on the black market . Lions are under threat, along with much of the world's wildlife and scientists say the best way to help is to agree a bold plan to protect half our planet.
The lions were butchered for their paws and heads to be used in black magic rituals. It's not just lions. One by one, we’re killing off our wondrous wild neighbors -- we’ve wiped out nearly TWO-THIRDS of animal populations in just the last 50 years! But there's a way to fix this. Scientists say if we urgently protect half our planet, it will let natural ecosystems recover and regenerate, and give wildlife a chance to thrive.

Zoo visitors kill KangarooThis Zoo Let Visitors Throw Bricks at Their Animals - Shut it Down Now
Sometimes you read a news story so ridiculous you just know it can't be true. Like the one about zoogoers who threw bricks at a kangaroo just to get its attention. The Fuzhou Zoo in Fujian knew visitors were prone to throwing projectiles at their kangaroos. Apparently, they weren't satisfied with watching them just lay about, like kangaroos are known to do, rather they wanted to see the marsupial's signature move, the hop.
So earlier this year, when visitors began throwing bricks at a female kangaroo to get it to hop, it was no surprise. Pictures show the aftermath of the senseless attack; the female's foot had been so smashed it was almost severed. But that wasn't all, she had suffered internal injuries so severe that within days she was dead.
A few weeks later, at the same zoo, park visitors injured another kangaroo!
