    There’s a lot of worldwide interest in the forthcoming marriage of Prince Harry to American actress Meghan Markle.

    Could she encourage him to give up the horrible tradition the Royals have of killing wild animals?

    Prince Harry and some of his friends reportedly killed 15 wild boar recently on a hunting trip in Germany.

    On Boxing Day, however, Prince Harry chose not to take part in the shoot with the rest of his family.  Apparently, Meghan had asked him not to do it. Could it be that she is trying to persuade him to change his ways and stop such actions?

    Care2.com member Alexandra has started a petition asking The Royal Family to stop participating in bloodsports.

    At the time of writing, the petition already has over 67,000 supporters – click here to add your support to it and to ask the Royal Family to stop participating in blood sports.

     

     

  2. Calling all donkey lovers

    Please sign Care2.com's petition to put pressure on African countries to STOP the donkey slaughter.

    The animals are crowded together in appalling conditions, where they are frightened, neglected and mistreated — and that's all before they are slaughtered for their skins and other body parts.  

    100,000 donkeys were slaughtered in Kenya alone over the last year.   

    Roughly 10 million animals are killed every year in this donkey trade. 

    As donkey populations fall in China, so the market for them is turning to Africa to satisfy the need for donkey skins and body parts.

    Botswana, Burkina Faso, Mali, Niger, Senegal, Ethiopia and Tanzania have now all banned the slaughter and export of donkeys.  However, Kenya and South Africa need persuading to do the right thing.  Both need the income from animal-loving international tourists - so our voices matter. 

    Sign Care2.com's petition urging the prime minister of Kenya and president of South Africa to ban the export of donkey parts now.
