The Lacey Act is outdated.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

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 #WorldAnimalNews

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

Very excited to be able to present what will be one of the first and definitely most comprehensive Continuing Legal Education course on all things Hunting and Fishing related. In my time as an attorney working with hunters, guides and outfitters, I have seen and experienced so much in the realms of contract, leasing, liability, administrative regulation, and criminal defense. This opportunity will allow me to help other attorneys help their outdoor clients by exploring some intricacies and nuances in the laws surrounding hunting, fishing, and outfitting. To be recognized as capable of taking up the challenge of presenting the “state of the union” on hunting law on a national scale is the culmination of what I’ve been working so hard for. As a partner of @outfitter_protection_services I am dedicated to the protection and preservation of our outdoor heritage, including working on the legal side of that effort. While the program is designed for attorneys, those individuals, outfitters, landowners, ranch managers, or outdoor companies who care about what is going on in their industry will most certainly gain valuable insight into the state of hunting law and what it means for them as well as their business. Additionally, my colleague M.B. Adelson will be discussing gun law, gun trusts, and 2nd Amendment considerations in an uncertain time. https://www.nbi-sems.com/ProductDetails/Hunting-Law-Leases-Firearms-Gun-Trusts-and-More/Video-Webcast/80275ER?N=0&searchTerm=80275 #huntinglawyer #cle #outfitters #attorneys #hunting #continuinglegaleducation #huntingoutfitter #huntinglease #guntrust #gunlaw #huntclub huntinglaw #Laceyact #huntbroker #huntingguide #liabilitywaiver #huntingseason #huntingrights #huntinglicense

3.7 pound rabbits for this baby girl now 💟 at just 2 years old I'd say she measures right about 10' from the tip of her nose to the tip of her tail and still has years left of growing 💟💟 of all the snakes I've owned, she's by far the most docile and gentle. To allow small children to hold her, examine her, and to allow me to grab her face and give her kisses...i think that sums up her attitude 😊 ° ° ° ° ° ° ° #burmesepython #burmesepythons #burmesepythonsofinstagram #albinoburmesepython #dinnertime #eatingbunny #burmesepythonsofig #pythonsofig #pythonsofinstagram #snakesofinstagram #snakesofig #ilikebigsnakes #bigsnake #laceyact #laceyactsucks #petercottontail #easterbunny #rodentpro #apexpreditor #apexpredators #reptilesofig #reptilesofinstagram #reptiles #coldblooded #coldbloodedpets
268 action takers tonight asking officials to #actonclimate . I’ve Never had so many action takers at a tabling event. The collaboration between @reverbgreen , @cleanairmoms , and @deadandcompany is amazing. Our action takers not only are committing to register to vote they are also asking legislatures to take action on climate and Support the #laceyact . But also, everyone is entered to win an amazing #dangeloguitars that is signed by the entire band. Even that dream machine @johnmayer !
Young living needs to stop 🤦🏼‍♀️🤦🏼‍♀️ #Repost @nathan11.11 The U.S. Justice Department recently announced that Lehi, Utah-based essential oils company #YoungLiving has pleaded guilty over federal misdemeanor charges due to its illegal trafficking of #rosewoodoil and #spikenardoil , which violated the #LaceyAct  and the #EndangeredSpeciesAct The federal agency noted that Young Living voluntarily disclosed its #rosewood oil violations and has been coordinating with the authorities. Under the terms of the plea agreement, the company is to settle $500,000 in fines and $135,000 in restitution. The essential oils firm was also sentenced to a community service payment of $125,000, which was intended for the conservation of protected species of #plants used in their manufacturing processes.
What a better way to celebrate #USARK defeat of the Lacey Act ban on intercontinental travel for large constrictors then with Burmese Pythons freshly hatched. #laceyact #celebration #burmesepython #burmesepythonsofinstagram #largeconstrictors
Tomorrow is the day large constrictor owners have been waiting for: the day that Burmese Pythons, Reticulated Pythons and Anacondas can be shipped across state lines again in the contential US (check your own state laws) However, I urge you especially as a Burmese Python keeper to only get one of these animals if you can truly care for it. You're going to need space for a large enclosure as well as be up for the task of eventually feeding guinea pigs and rabbits. These snakes also need to be handled on a regular basis to prevent cage aggression because none of us need to see another news article on how someone was 'attacked.' I also ask you fellow Burmese breeders to be responsible in who you sell to. #burmesepython #albinogreenburmesepython #laceyact #responsible #dontfuckthisup
There was some huge news in the herpetology community regarding the LACEY act and how government does not have the authority to dictate the transportation of certain snakes across the continental US. This is in part - great news. I've been planning on getting Burmese soon but have been stressed because it would mean committing 20+ years to living in the same state. This change in law means I'll be able to move across the country as I want. Thus removing one issue. But there is also a problem. There are factory farm breeders for reticulated pythons - animals treated cruelly and over bred to maximise the profit they can make. This will now happen with Burmese pythons (as it did with retics). So please with this new change in law coming into effect, do your research. Support the breeders that might not always have hatchlings but breed the animals when the female is healthy enough to breed. Also remember how large these snakes can get and the housing they need. . . . #laceyact #herpetology #snakesofinstagram #snakesofig #reptilesofinstagram #reptilesofig #burmesepython #pythonbivittatus #python #bivittatus #pbivittatus #gorgeous #beautiful #beautifulanimal
I just read #USARK latest update on Facebook in reference to the lawsuit and I am so happy! I LOVE my burms and if I even have to move bringing them with me is a must. This is one of the many reasons why I support USARK and what they do. This is a big move for the reptile community. #burmesepython #laceyact #lawsuit #reptilemom
Thor reminds you on this election day to check to see if any of your ballot measures are being backed by HSUS. A vote for HSUS is a vote against companion animals and more restrictions when it comes to exotics. #hsusiscorrupted #hsusdoesntrunanyshelters #supportlocalfarmers #snakesareawesome #burmesepython #snakesofinstagram #laceyact
#laceyact banned silurus glanis (wels catfish) and Nile perch...luckily I got one before the ban
If you don't follow my personal page ( @samantha.demarco ) you should lol. #tbt it's never too early and never too late to educate and spread the love of reptiles! Burmese pythons amongst a many other snakes have been put onto the Lacey Act restricting them from being transported out of whatever state they're in, so if I moved out of state and I still had Tank, I wouldn't have been able to bring him with :( follow your dreams, educate not eradicate, share the love! #allexotics #livingthedream #burmesepython #albinoburmesepythons #burms #restrictedanimals #RABID #restrictedanimalbreedinformationanddefense #laceyact #respectthesnake #bigsnakelivesmatter #educate

All of our solids are Lacey Act compliant, insuring that all lumber going into our furniture has been harvested responsibly . #bellemeade #solids #laceyact #lumber #furnituredesign #furniture
It's really just the first part that is important. HOLY SHIT it was all a scam! I'm so happy! But seriously, fuck the USFWS for illegally trying to get us out of hobby. We will prevail! #fuckthelaceyact #laceyact

My stunning tinley pick up from today. Weird Al the weird albino. It's markings are so light you can barely see them and he's very light pastel colors.
Earlier this month, Lumber Liquidators reached a criminal settlement with the Federal government for importing and selling illegally logged wood from the Russian Far East, home to the world’s last remaining Siberian tigers. The @NYTimes published an opinion piece this weekend on the Lumber Liquidators story, detailing evidence dating back to EIA’s 2013 release of an undercover investigation that initially revealed LL of violating the U.S. Lacey Act, a law that prohibits the import of illegal plant and animal products. #illegallogging #LumberLiquidators #LaceyAct #NYTimes #tigers #RussianFarEast #NoMoreBloodWood #vscocam
She just got done having a much needed soak
I hope everyone in the US managed to get the newts or salamanders they wanted before the Lacey Act takes effect tomorrow! Probably the dumbest pet-related law since Tennessee's turtle ban. #newt #marblednewt #triturus #triturusmarmoratus #petsofinstagram #laceyact #nolaceyact

Live at the @Guster concert in #WashingtonDC @reverbgreen promotes the #LaceyAct . #NoMoreBloodWood
Ah bummer, one of my favorite captives, #Neurergus #newts and 200 other species are being potentially placed on an #InjuriousSpecies list by the #USFWS . Here's where all #herpers need to pay attention, this proposed ban was not based on excellent science, it is being lampooned by an HSUS supporter that doesn't want any #ectotherms to be kept in captivity. This is a knee-jerk reaction to a potentially catastrophic fungal disease but the listing of #caudates on the #LaceyAct will make INTERSTATE movement of CAPTIVE BORN #salamanders illegal. A hobbyist won't get a permit and researchers studying these animals will have a ton of hurtles to jump through. This is a pretty major overreach. I'm all for the ban of importation of wild salamanders but restricting movement of ones here and captive born is too much. We as herpers need to politely contact USFWS and explain the ramifications. What do you all think? I've been digesting this for a few days and at first was in favor of the ban to isolate the disease, but not the injurious species listing. Ultimately I think this is a great idea but poor execution.
Breaking down a brick of EcoEarth and starting a new book. Reptiles and politics unfortunately are not good friends. #largeconstrictors #everglades #laceyact
So apparently my photo of my snake Elsa is trending on 9gag and Reddit. #burmesepython
A good example of why there should be a "Don't Like but I'm glad I Know About it Now" button on social media platforms. Here's a picture of death threats against Peruvian Environmental Protection Officials and the illegally sourced foreign wood which was recently seized at a port in Houston TX. Demand for this illegal wood from the US and elsewhere has stimulated the growth of violent timber mafias in Peru, which have recently carried out arson attacks on their offices. Seizing this illegal timber (under the #LaceyAct ), and ensuring it doesn't earn profits for these violent groups is the most important thing the US can do right now to support #environmentdefenders in Peru and forest communities around the world. @jamesbvalentine and I went to Guatemala recently to see examples of sustainable forestry practices in action. Very inspiring. As musicians we wanna know that our guitars are being manufactured with ethical timber. This is a huge issue related to climate change, the drug trade, violence, economic inequality and more. Thanks for reading this. We will post more in the new year about it and how we might be able to help the situation. Xoxo #NoMoreBloodWood
