  • Where has Bagheera, the black panther gone?

    On September 18, around 6.30 p.m., the firefighters of Armentières received a strange call: a black panther was walking on the roofs of a busy street in the town. Checks don't take long, and what could have been a joke isn't one. A young panther, around 10 months old, walks on the roofs of buildings...

  • Fauverie du Faron, a meeting with Chapter Animals

    Chapter Animals went during the month of August to the Faron forest. Criticized for many years, many associations and foundations of protection have, in the past, asked for its closure. In 2017, the wilderness assured us that accommodations would be made for the animals, but what is it really?

  • LIVE CITES - Chapter Animals fights for Asiatic otters

    Is it normal to still see, in 2019, animals considered as mere objects? The answer is no. Yet, mainly in Japan, many thematic bars / cafes exist. It could be funny, if these coffees did not contain exotic species. Asian otters, owls, snakes, turtles or meerkats, these animals pass from hand to hand, to the delight of the youngest ... And great. Yet it is this kind of activity, with many specimens taken in the wild, that enhances the trafficking of species.

  • LIVE CITES: Chapter Animals wants to save giraffes

    Since the creation of Chapter Animals, we have continued to denounce the decline of giraffes. The giraffe dies slowly but surely, and in the utmost silence. Hunted for its meat, superstitions, trophies ... For these bones, its hair, its skin... All the elements are gathered so that giraffes become the new favorite targets of hunters or poachers once elephants, rhinoceros, lions and hippos disappeared. During this CITES Cop18, it is high time to give a protection status to this species, which has seen its population disappear by 40% since 1 985...

  • LIVE CITES: Chapter Animals congratulates decisions on elephants

    They are wise, intelligent and sensitive. They are able to show more empathy than most men, who constantly chase them around the world. They are also able to recognize a family member decades after being separated. Altruism and possessing an impressive memory, they could disappear in a few years if nothing changes ... We speak well on African elephants. And during the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species (CITES), their species may be doomed to extinction.

  • Sanctuaries in emergency ?

    We regularly talk about the creation of sanctuaries in France and abroad. Although our project is progressing little by little, that we have already begun to solicit some lands, to contact some municipalities and we will start to contact some circuses and zoos to inform them of our future, we hope to implement it as soon as possible. That's why we decided to tell you about some of the sanctuaries and shelters we enjoy and support!

  • Let me find the ocean

    Lotty, Sharky, Malou, Femke, Beauty, Guama, Hina... Our fight is also to give freedom to the individuals to whom the man took them, for the simple pleasure of the entertainment. If we talk regularly about elephants in circuses, in France, dolphins were also victims of catches in their natural environment. In French Polynesia, Hina has been captive since 1997 and long before she served the US Army. In France, six dolphins also underwent capture before ending up in basins. They are divided into groups of three between the Marineland of Antibes and Parc Astérix.

  • I am not a trophy

      I AM NOT A TROPHY :  

    Hippos, elephants, giraffes, rhinos, lions, antelopes, gorillas, leopards... The list of species hunted for a ridiculous "trophy" is long. This hunt is, in 2019, intolerable! We are indignant to find on the walls lion's heads, elephant tusks or giraffe skin. These animals deserve, just as we do, to live. Especially since most of these species are endangered. Help us stop this massacre through our campaign « I am NOT a trophy » and propose alternatives to the death of hundreds of animals.

    Do elephants have their place in circuses? As we know, not a single week goes by without a demonstration taking place in front of one of the many itinerant establishments with non-domestic animals. First of all, we wanted to know how many elephants were still present in circus circus French and belonging to a circus or a French trainer.

  • Canned hunting: A real massacre

    Hunts on the African continent, and especially those of protected species, have no place. The methods of trophy hunting - or canned hunting - for lions are cruel. And, again, in France, it has been talking for a few days. It is thanks to the photos published on the social networks and dating from 2015 that a couple of managers of a store Super U was pinned for this barbaric but legal leisure.
