 Boycotting Animal Planet

To all Exotic Animal Owners & Facebook members:

There is a new Facebook Group called "Boycott Animal Planet & Other Programs Using Scare Tactics"
Link

This group has been created to ask Animal Planet to STOP using fear mongering instead of educating viewers about animals.... See More

WE WILL NO LONGER WATCH THEIR PROGRAMS UNTIL THEY FOCUS ON THESE ISSUES INSTEAD OF SPREADING FEAR AND USING SCARE TACTICS AGAINST REPTILE AND OTHER CAPTIVE BRED EXOTICS.

These media outlets need to focus on REAL problems facing our wildlife: (overfishing, murder of marine mammals, and habitat destruction due to over development, etc) instead of spreading fear.

The private exotic keeping sector has prevented the extinction of hundreds of species. Attacking the people who love and protect them the most is not only ignorant but dangerous to Nature itself.

We will be launching an email & call-in campaign and we need your help!!
With all the new anti-exotic legislations introduced into our congress, the LAST thing we need is a scared public. An educated and compassionate public will accomplish more than fear, which only brews hatred and ignorance.

Please join this group and help us support a more educational approach to exotic animals. One that teaches respect, not fear, and exhibits the usefulness of animals to the ecological security of our world.

Thank you.
