Seal Alert-SA was established in 1999 in South Africa by seal rescuer Francois Hugo as a direct hands-on organization to address the imbalances, cruelty and abuse that has plagued seals for over 600 years. Seal Alert-SA's primary roles are investigation, rescue and in-the-wild rehabilitation, free of all forms of confinement.

13.7 BILLION YEARS was launched in 2008 by New York-based artist, writer and environmental activist Reynard Loki as an armchair activist blog "covering daily news on conservation, natural science, the environment and animal rights -- with quick and easy ways to get informed and involved."
