What is a Meany Greenie?

Meany Greenies are environmental organizations that solicit donations in pursuit of protecting the beauty and splendor of wildlife and nature but also support hunting, animal slaughter, and animal farming.

This is both hypocritical and counterproductive to an otherwise noble and tremendously important cause. 

Meany Greenie...? You Decide.

This organization is commonly recognized by its panda logo. The largest privately supported international conservation organization in the world, with more than 1 million members in the U.S. alone, with an annual revenue of $120 million + (as of 2005). It's mission is protecting the world's wildlife and wildlands.

Meanwhile, they publicly endorse bludgeoning seals to death in Canada. Not only do they endorse such barbaric violence to such a beautiful and docile creature, but furthermore proclaim the act as a "humane" practice to the seal population!

How can someone determine whether or not specific environmental organization is considered a "Meany Greenie?"

  1. Ask the organization, "What is your position on hunting?"
  2. Investigate through search engines.
  3. Gather referrals from other trusted pro-environment groups that do not support hunting, animal cruelty, or or any form of animal exploitation.
