'Save Me' is a non-profit organisation based in the UK & founded by the fabulous Brian May. (Yes- the Brian May whose MANY talents include being guitarist for the famous "QUEEN " rock band).

'Save Me' challenges the cruel minority in our society that feels it is their right to persecute and torture wildlife for sport, in the case of foxes, or to protect agricultural interests, in the case of the badger.

Anne Brummer, Chief Executive of 'Save Me' discusses the controversial badger culls due to start in June.

Please sign the international petition on the Save Me website to help STOP THE CULL! (just scroll down on the right hand side of the Save Me Home Page)

SEA SHEPHERD - OPERATION ZERO TOLERANCE

The waves have barely settled from the anti - whaling clashes in the Southern Ocean and the battle-weary ships have just made it back to port ... tune in to get an Operation Zero Tolerance campaign wrap.

We talk to Kelly Higgins, Personal Assistant to Sea Shepherd's founder Paul Watson and Eliza Muirhead, an official Sea Shepherd photographer.

Operation Zero Tolerance is the 9th Sea Shepherd expedition to oppose the illegal activities of the Japanese whaling fleet in the Southern Ocean Whale Sanctuary.

By all accounts, it's the most successful yet - 768 whales on Japan's hit list are now swimming free thanks to the non-violent, direct action strategies of the Sea Shepherd 120+ international crew.

This unique documentary charts the lives of both humans and non-humans who have experienced animal testing first-hand, with hauntingly honest testimony of scientists and lab technicians whose ethics demanded they choose a different path, as well as the simultaneously heartwarming and heartbreaking stories of animals who have seen both sides of the cage.

Lawrence Pope, President of Victorian Advocates for Animals Inc.

Lawrence has been intrumental in many animal protection campaigns including anti- jumps racing, steel jaw and glue traps and flying fox campaigns....and that's not nearly all of them!

Lawrence talks about his recently released book "The Teeth of Beasts", a dark Melbourne tale.

It tells the story of a confronting journey into animal activism and provides a startling critique of several of the city's high profile institutions.

The Teeth of Beasts is available at BookPal website.

The Fauna Fighters are Real Life Super Heroes.
