N'birdie: They said the second night of the Democratic Debate was quite different-that's because I was there 😀 as a #politicianwithwings and the first non-human to run for president. ( Yup there was a bird in the house! ) Here I am alongside Hilary Clinton ( she loves my PLANET FIRST campaign )discussing the importance of animal welfare and the environment. I hope to legislate to protect native habitats from further destruction, invest in clean energy and transition animal agriculture to plant-based agriculture. I will fight for the rapid phase out of battery hen cages and sow stalls and bring an end to animal testing. Land clearing is an animal welfare disaster that displaces and hurts huge numbers of wildlife. I hope to introduce better laws to protect animal habitats also protect the unique rights for every animal on the planet by establishing a better, legal system for animals that will protect their right to live free and from human harm. I have been flying free for over three years now ( I learned to freeflight when I was younger ) and I want my friends to enjoy the same rights and freedoms I was given./#nbirdie /#nbirdie4congress /#usa /#politics /#americanpolitics /#animalrights /#environment /#animalaw /#hilaryclinton /#runforcongress /#americancongress /#environmentalistwithwings /#american /#politician /#politicianwithwings /#freeflightmovement /#freedomforanimals /#animalliberation /#2020 /#climate /#energy /#animalfreedom /#animallaw /#aviancare /#planetfirst /Animal Liberation For 2020🇺🇸🐥#laceyact
N'birdie: As some of you know I'm running for President in 2020 as the first non-human to do so because animal welfare and the environment is important to me! and of course my friends!. I was once an orphan but now, thanks to my carer I have been reintroduced back into the wild and I've been flying free for over three years now!. It was great to be at the Democratic Debate 2019 ( Bernie's getting a bit of lint off my beak ).🇺🇸Running for Congress is important to me because I'm passionate about animal welfare and animal rights. I'm also passionate about freedom and liberty for all animals and I hope to help other animals the way I was. I also hope to establish new policies with regards to live export, climate energy, ending factory farming, safeguarding animals from abuse, protecting wildlife habitats and establishing an Animal Rights Commission as well as putting an end to animal testing-so there's a lot to do but I'm up for the challenge!. My colleagues and I are working hard to put and end to animal abuse and injustice on every level from the ground up!, while also protecting our environment from being logged./#nbirdie /#beverlyhillsbirdie /#nbirdie4congress /#environmentalistwithwings /#americancongress /#democraticdebate /#politicianwithwings /#freeflightmovement /#animalrights /#2020 /#politics /#americanpolitics /#berniesanders /#mypolicies /#laceyact /#usa /#climate /#protectwildlife /#nevercaged /#aviancare /#animallaw

Young Living Seed to Seal label, pilaar 3: Standaard - deel 2 . . 👉🏻Zoals ik eerder al zei bestaat het Lacey Act Compliance Program uit vijf onderdelen die ervoor zorgen dat de etherische oliën, producten en partners van Young Living voldoen aan de wetgeving en regulering in alle betreffende rechtsgebieden . 👉🏻Deze vijf onderdelen zijn: . 📌Educatie van de leverancier: . Leveranciers maken kennis met de basisvereisten van het Lacey Act Compliance Program. . 📌Evaluatie van de leverancier: . Er wordt bepaald welke producten ingekocht dienen te worden en met welke leverancier samengewerkt gaat worden door verschillende factoren (productrisico en leveranciersrisico) te evalueren. . 📌Certificatie van de leverancier: . Er wordt training gegeven over het Lacey Act Compliance Program. Na de training moeten leveranciers aantonen dat ze het certificaat behaald hebben. . 📌Risicoanalyse: . Als onderdeel van de certificatie wordt elke leverancier en ieder plantenproduct ingedeeld in een risicocategorie. Deze categorie bepaalt welke goedkeuringen er nodig zijn voor samenwerking met Young Living. Zowel de leveranciers als de plantenproducten worden onafhankelijk beoordeeld. . 📌Auditing/toezicht: . Young Living heeft richtlijnen voor auditing en toezicht ontwikkeld op basis van de risicofactoren. Het Lacey Act Compliance Program is ontwikkeld voor alle individuen en organisaties in de leveringsketen. . . 👉🏻Deze 'gouden standaard' is de basis voor deze industrie en laat zien hoe Young Living zich inzet voor de bescherming van kwetsbare landschappen en planten.
A dapper little Eastern Newt (Notophthalmus viridescens) from our Duck Creek trip earlier in the year. This newt finds itself in an odd spot federally. They are declining throughout many of their populations. They are known carriers of Bd fungus (Batrachochytrium dendrobatidis; known generally as Chytrid fungus). Chytrid fungus is one of the largest threats to all amphibians. They are also heavily vulnerable to a major new problem: Batrachochytrium salamandrivorans (known now as Bsal). This new fungus may very well kill most/all salamanders. Due to the popularity of this beautiful critter as a pet, among others, it has been listed under the Lacey Act as an "injurious species". This decision comes from the Department of Interior's Fish and Wildlife Service. In 2016, they listed 201 species of salamander under the Lacey act in hopes of land locking Bsal out of the United States. These salamanders can no longer be imported to the US and the natives who were listed (including the E newt) who are already within the US cannot be moved across state lines. When you go out herping, wash your gear regularly! Bsal and Bd are just two of the major threats to beautiful critters like this. #amphibians #amphibiansofinstagram #herps #herplife #amphibianlove #chytrid #chytridfungus #bsal #salamanders #salamandersofinstagram #newts #newtsofinstagram #animals #animalsofinstagram #picoftheday #animallover #herpetology #wildlife #conservation #wildlifeconservation #wildlifemanagement #usfws #laceyact #conservationconcern #nature #science #biology #biologist
Interagency investigation stops international smuggling of federally-protected plants from Lake Mead National Recreation Area - go.usa.gov/xmNBx⁣ ⁣.⁣ ⁣Case update: May 2, 2019⁣ ⁣.⁣ ⁣A man who stole more than 500 federally-protected cactus plants from Lake Mead National Recreation Area - National Park Service has been sentenced to serve 24 months in prison. Williams Starr Schwartz, age 54, will then serve 3 years of supervised release, during which time he is banned from entering the park and surrounding public land. He must also pay $22,655 in restitution.⁣ ⁣.⁣ ⁣Court documents detail how Schwartz stole and directed others to steal the plants for him between October 2014 and August 2018.

Many customers today are concerned about compliance with the Lacey Act. One of the easiest and best ways to ensure compliance on your part is to purchase woods only through reputable suppliers like LMI.  We work hard to determine that the imported woods you purchase from us were harvested and imported legally and ethically. As a leader in the instrument grade woods business, LMI has a long history of supporting sustainable logging practices. We have always identified our woods by scientific name. In the 90’s we abandoned the sale of Brazilian Rosewood when the legitimacy of the wood became iffy at best, in 2005 we voluntarily stopped purchasing Pernambuco and in 2009 we discontinued Camatillo. All of these prohibitions were self-enacted by LMI, despite the profitability of these woods. The ascendance of the global economy has constantly pushed the environmental community to keep up with economic pressures and, as a result, LMI  participated in a Lacey Act convention held to help guide and explain the implementation of the Act in its most recent form. Our current wood handling procedures conform with the Act and we have enacted a program that ensures that all our wood vendors are in compliance with the laws of the United States and countries within which the woods are harvested. The Lacey Act, passed originally in 1900 and amended many times, makes it unlawful to import, export, transport, sell, receive, acquire, or purchase in interstate or foreign commerce any plant taken in violation of any US or foreign law that protects plants. The Act requires an import declaration that must contain the scientific name of the plant, value of the importation, quantity of the plant, and name of the country from which the plant was harvested. Submitting false identification or declaration, no matter whether purposefully or not, is also a violation of the Lacey Act. . . . . #earthday #mothernature #preservenature #cites #laceyact #cites #lmi #brazilianrosewood #woodimport #environment #luthiersmercantile

A newly introduced bill called the CaptivePrimateSafetyAct (CPSA), that’s supported by Animal Welfare Institute (@awionline ), addresses the cruel and dangerous problem of pet primate ownership in the UnitedStates. Sponsored by Reps. @repblumenauer (D-OR) and @repbrianfitz (R-PA), this bill would amend the #LaceyAct to prohibit interstate commerce in nonhuman primates (including apes, monkeys, lemurs, and lorises) for the exotic pettrade.🙏🐵 - “The suffering pet primates endure is alarming,” said Cathy Liss, President of AWI in a statement. “They are often forcibly removed from their mothers soon after birth, spend their lives isolated in small cages and endure unnecessary, painful procedures such as tooth extraction. The Captive Primate Safety Act is urgently needed to prevent these animals from entering the inhumane interstate pet trade.” - Conservative estimates suggest that there are at least 15,000 primates kept as pets in the United States. 💔🦍🐵🚫 EndThePetTrade - - READ MORE: 🌍👉WorldAnimalNews.com @worldanimalnews_ @peace_4animals
Early morning in Tucson, AZ. We are attending the annual IWPA meeting to stay ahead on legality. #iwpawood #tucson #legality #laceyact #baillielumber #doitright #buysafe
New report from @EIAEnvironment details illegal logging in Gabon and the Republic of Congo and how that wood contaminates the US market. Read the report and watch the full video at the link in our bio. #IllegalLogging #LaceyAct
The Lacey Act is outdated. Government agencies are taking it upon themselves to address the gaps at their own discretion. What we need is a modernized law that is fair, clear, and consistently followed. One that we help create and agree to follow rather than one that allows government agencies to make up rules for us to follow. #laceyact #tarantulakeeper #petmemes #conservation #tarantulafacts #smarteist

N'birdie: I love to read when time permits and with my tiny claws turning the pages can sometimes be a little tricky but now I'm running for Congress I've employed a professional page turner called Tina-she's just great!. We're on our way to the Library of Congress to have a look at The Lacey Act from 1900!. When the Lacey Act was passed in 1900 it became the first Federal Law protecting Wildlife ( and I'm all about that! ). The law covers fish and wildlife, their parts or products, flora and fauna!. The Lacey Act is a primary tool for stopping interstate trafficking of protected wildlife species also increasing transparency and focus law enforcement efforts by requiring importers to declare species, country of origin and other information!./#nbirdie /#beverlyhillsbirdie /#nbirdie4congress /#congress /#americancongress /#libraryofcongress /#washington /#environmentalistwithwings /#imrunningforcongress /#fortheanimals /#laceyact /#1900s /#endangeredspecies /#animalprotection /#tinapageturner /#wildlifeprotection /#federallaw /#animallivesmatter
