What Can We Learn from a Chimpanzee, a Rat, and a Spider?

A Facebook Live Conversation with Acclaimed Author Barbara J. King

Saturday, July 24, 2021, 12 PM EDT1PM EDT

July 12, 2021 (Albuquerque, NM) - Phoenix Zones Initiative, a global nonprofit organization on a mission to advance the interconnected rights, health, and wellbeing of people, animals and the planet, will host a Facebook Live event, Extending Compassion for All Beings. Dr. Barbara J. King is an emerita professor of anthropology at William and Mary and a widely acclaimed author of seven books. Her work focuses on animal emotion and cognition, the ethics of our relationships with animals, and the evolution of language, culture, and religion.
 
“Our world may transform as we see how animals rejoice in good days and endure bad ones; love their families and friends and grieve their losses; and struggle to overcome physical and emotional challenges,says Dr. King. When each of us takes positive steps to help, the collective impact is enormous, an arc in which we strive to create a better world for animals.”

Dr. King will be joined by Phoenix Zones Initiative CEO, Dr. Hope Ferdowsian, as they discuss:

  • why the way we treat animals matters;
  • what we can do to translate our compassion for other beings into treating them with the love, justice, and dignity they deserve; and
  • what we need to learn about the connections between the rights, health, and wellbeing of people and animals.

“We are extremely excited and honored to have Dr. King join us for our second in a series of Facebook Live events,says Dr. Ferdowsian. Our mission of advancing the interconnected rights, health, and wellbeing of people, animals, and the planet through a Just One Health approach is clearly reflected through the work of Dr. King. Together, we will explore how love and grief dont only belong to humans, and how many animals can experience rich lives, much like humans can, if given the chance. Most importantly, Dr. King will talk about how each of us has the power to take compassionate action to help others.”

Dr. King will also speak about some of the animals whose stories continue to motivate her throughout her work.

Oregon Fish and Wildlife Commission declares the Marbled Murrelet Endangered

   
 
 

Washington, D.C., July 9, 2021) Oregon joined Washington and California to protect Marbled Murrelets as Endangered under the state’s Endangered Species Act. The Oregon Fish and Wildlife Commission voted 4 to 3 to reclassify the murrelet from Threatened to Endangered. These protections come at a critical time for this species, which depends on marine areas for feeding and old-growth forest for nesting. Both of its habitats face uncertain futures with respect to the impact of climate change.  

“We are relieved the Commission has voted in favor of uplisting the Marbled Murrelet to Endangered status,” says Jennifer Davis, ABC’s Northwestern Regional Director. “This elusive species is extremely vulnerable to a host of threats, and without additional protections, it is at real risk of irreversible decline. We thank the Oregon Fish and Wildlife Commission for this vote in favor of the murrelet.”

The Marbled Murrelet is Federally listed as Threatened, but this state declaration will provide much needed additional protections on Oregon State lands.

ABC will continue to work with partners and stakeholders in the region to ensure that this species is able to persist in the Pacific Northwest for generations to come.
