Of course I should have known this. All the formatting and pictures did not
go through onto birding aus, so unfortunately what came through looks like a
bit of a jumble when it got back to me. To get to it click on the URL ending
with 42J. It is genuine.

actionAlert action alert! 
Owls are being steadily hunted and slaughtered in India for ceremonies and
rituals. These majestic creatures are especially important in agrarian
communities where they control rodent and insect populations. We need to put
a stop to this cruel practice today.

Dear Philip, 

In certain places in India, the owl trade is thriving. Prices for dead owls
and their body parts are soaring as they are increasingly used in rituals
and ceremonies as well as street performances. Skulls, ear tufts, and livers
are frequently used for their supposedly magical properties. 

Urge the Ministry of  <>
Environment and Forests to curb the illegal owl trade and put a stop to this
cruel practice.

Owls are extremely important in controlling the population of rats and
insects, especially in agrarian communities. India has outlawed the owl
trade, but the laws are clearly not being enforced. Tell the government to
<> crack down on illegal owl
poachers and protect these majestic creatures.
