"Direct Action"
produces actual changes in the physical world...

Throughout this website, you'll discover an eclectic collection of organizations and individuals committed to various strategies, ideas, and efforts opposing animal and/ or environmental abuse...

     
Believing that a diverse approach of actions is the best strategy to advance our idealogy, we seek out any and all environmentally related associations, grassroots animal rights groups, alternative green politics and strategies, etc., etc.

Peaceful ideas and actions to preserve our planet's well being are also welcome, as well as intelligent and sustainable living strategies and various other creative "green" campaigns and ideas found scattered around the globe...
  
Their common thread? Like-minded goals of preserving the health of our planet for future generations and recognizing ALL its lifeforms as equals.


(Because human beings are also animals, by advancing all animal and environmentally related causes, we believe we are also directly advancing human rights and causes!)

T
he Ecodefense.com primary role is to serve as a sort of "resource network" for all these strategies, actions and efforts.


What exactly is "Ecodefense"?

In its most generic logical form, it could certainly mean "defending the ecosystem"... a noble and wise undertaking for all planetary beings, in our humble opinion...

And although we have our own particular notions for what ECODEFENSE means to US, the fact that the word lacks a proper definition in most dictionaries graciously leaves it open to the individual to ultimately decide what ECODEFENSE is-  to them!

By exploring our site, we hope you'll find your own special understanding, inspirations, and styles of participation...



Animals are our friends... Lets dance!

There are a great many options for participating in effective activism campaigns around the world...

...and just as there are vast differences in our personalities, cultures, lifestyles and idealogies, there are also many differences in our choices of planetary concern and activism.

For whatever reasons, what pushes one person's hotbuttons may not concern or effect another in the same way...

That's Ok. Some people write letters while others sink illegal whaling ships... It's only a matter of personal choice.

Ecodefense.com attempts to categorize and organize this great diversity of activism choices into ways that suit YOU, your concerns, and your lifestyle the best.

ACTION ALERT OF THE MONTH!

Stop the Taiji dolphin slaughter!Stop the Taiji Dolphin Slaughter!

Winner of film and audience awards across the world, including an Oscar, Sundance, SilverDocs and Hot Docs, The Cove follows a team of activists and filmmakers as they infiltrate a heavily-guarded cove in Taiji, Japan.

In this remote village they witness and document activities deliberately being hidden from the public: More than 20,000 dolphins and porpoises are being slaughtered each year and their meat, containing toxic levels of mercury, is being sold as food in Japan, often times labeled as whale meat.


The majority of the world is not aware this is happening. The Taiji cove is blocked off from the public. Cameras are not allowed inside and the media does not cover the story.

It's critical that we get the word out in Japan. It's critical that we get the word out—everywhere. We believe that once the Japanese people know, they will demand change.


ACTION ALERT OF THE YEAR!

Get involved!Help us stop the senseless
annual slaughter of Canadian harp seals!

Years of activism has the seal industry on the rocks...
but its still not officially over.

Help us drive the final nail in the coffin and "seal the fate" of this cruel industry.
