Let Go and Let Nature Be
New Hampshire Animal Rights League
by Joan OBrien

The world is losing nature at a remarkable pace, and New Hampshire is no exception. The crisis spares no creature — mammals, fish, birds, amphibians, reptiles, and even the tiniest invertebrates are disappearing. The culprits? Rampant development, widespread pesticide use, and climate change. Safeguarding habitats is no longer enough — we must enable nature to expand. The good news is that simply by letting land be, allowing nature to reclaim its space, we can help imperiled species rebound. 83% of land in the U.S. is privately owned. If we planted native on 50% of private land we would ..read more

Turtles look tough, but they are in trouble! New Hampshire has 7 species of turtles and 4 are considered in greatest need of conservation. Worldwide, 50% of modern turtles are either threatened or extinct. Major threats to turtles include loss of habitat due to development and roadways. Other threats include plastic trash, dogs, and non-native turtles released into the wild. Every turtle is a miracle! Eggs and young turtles are food for many other animals. A turtle that beats the odds and makes it to adulthood can take up to 20 years to reproduce. Join the Turtle Brigade ..read more

Letter to the Editor The Concord Monitor March 4, 2024 Regarding the Feb. 22 My Turn in the Concord Monitor that is making the most read list, “Our first Virginia winter? How climate change has impacted NH” by Eric Orff, I would like to respond. Mr. Orff’s My Turn is an important reminder to everyone that climate change is real and happening faster than anyone thought it would. His voice is hugely important because it is being listened to by others who may still be on the fence about climate change. Our carbon footprint is weighing heavily on the only home we have. Some footprints are heavier ..read more

Chanting “Kangaroos Are Not Shoes — Don’t Be a Dick’s,” the New Hampshire Animal Rights League stormed Dick’s Sporting Goods at the Mall of New Hampshire calling on the store to stop selling shoes made from kangaroo skins. Dick’s Sporting Goods is the country’s largest distributor of kangaroo-based soccer cleats made by Germany-based Adidas, Japanese-based Mizuno, and other companies. Australia’s commercial kangaroo industry kills almost two million wild kangaroos each year. Commercial shooters are permitted to kill mother kangaroos even when the joeys are still in their pouch. Joeys a ..read more

by RICK GREEN for the Keene Sentinel January 11, 2024 The value of gray squirrels and coyotes was debated at an N.H. Senate committee meeting this week, with some speakers labeling them as a plentiful nuisance and others saying they are worthy of protection. At issue were two bills, one to ban using dogs to hunt coyotes and the other to allow gray squirrels to be hunted year-round. State Sen. Tim Lang, R-Sanbornton, is the prime sponsor of Senate Bill 548, which would change the definition of the furry rodent, specifying that it should no longer be considered a game animal.   ..read more

Speaking Out Against Bull Riding

For the third year in a row, NHARL volunteers had boots on the ground at the SNHU Arena in Manchester to protest the Professional Bull Riders (PBR) Tour. The League led two impactful demonstrations before each scheduled show, Friday, Dec. 15, and Saturday, Dec. 16. Our posters invited eventgoers to consider the experience of the bull and the very real possibility that animals could get injured and potentially euthanized that evening. New this year, we also showed video of bulls getting hurt at PBR events, which played on a loop as eventgoers walked past. Whi ..read more

Commentary by Joan O’Brien NH Bulletin (republished by Seacoast Online) November 6, 2023 It’s deer hunting season, and once again the New Hampshire Food Bank is promoting its “Hunt for the Hungry” program, encouraging hunters to donate deer meat (venison) to the food bank. It’s a feel-good program that gets a lot of positive press. What’s not mentioned in the promotion is the very real danger that donated venison could contain lead. It’s a real possibility, one that Scott Mason, executive director of New Hampshire Fish and Game, touched on at the September New Hampshire Fish and Game Commiss ..read more
