FISH FEEL -Mary Finelli , President

Fish Feel is the sole organization devoted exclusively to promoting the recognition of fish as sentient beings deserving of respect and protection. Despite fish constituting the largest category of animals used for food (including as farmed animal feed), and despite huge numbers of fish harmed for research, "sport,"and aquaria, their well-being receives very little attention, including from the animal protection community. Fish Feel primarily serves to help educate the public as to why these animals are deserving of our appreciation, the immense problems caused by their exploitation, and how we can help them. Mary Finelli is President and Chairperson of Fish Feel. Mary is a long-time animal rights activist with a B.S. in Animal Science. With a primary focus on farmed animals, she has worked for various animal protection organizations, including as Researcher and then Program Director for The Humane Society of the United States from 1992 to 1999. Mary was the Producer of Farmed Animal Watch, a weekly on-line news digest sponsored by numerous animal protection organizations: http://www.farmedanimal.org. She has assisted with research for several books, and co-wrote a chapter of In Defense of Animals: The Second Wave: http://sfcmadrid.files.wordpress.com/2010/12/capitulo-7.pdf. Mary has long been a top contributor to AR-News, Animal_Net, and other animal rights and vegetarian news listservs. http://thepollinationproject.org/2013/02/08/mary-finelli-fish-feel.

Living in the chaparral hills overlooking Los Angeles with her husband and two sons, Sharon enjoys visiting the local farmers market every week and cooking for friends and family. Sharon's Philosophy The key to health—for us and the planet—is becoming increasingly clear. We need to make a sure-footed return to eating a whole plant foods diet. Whether you’re a vegan, vegetarian or omnivore, it’s completely in your power to eat a diet that focuses on a symphony of minimally processed plant foods, including whole grains, legumes, vegetables, fruits, nuts, seeds, herbs, and spices. In fact, most traditional, cultural diets around the globe—whether you’re in Peru or Africa—are plant-based. In the United States, we have strayed away from our healthy plant-based diets to the typical American diet, which we know is linked with death, obesity, and disease. Best of all, meals based on global flavors, crunchy grains, earthy legumes, and a rainbow of fruits and vegetables are downright delicious!

Point-Blank Shooting, Gaffing, Clubbing of Pregnant Rays

Graphic undercover video of a killing contest that occurred on June 13th documents the horrific slaughter of cownose rays of the Chesapeake Bay. Shot with arrows at point-blank range, the rays were then gaffed and repeatedly clubbed with bats before slowly suffocating to death.

In this video, people can be heard laughing as they later dumped the bloody bodies into the Patuxent River (Mechanicsville, Md).

This video shows participants forcibly trying to keep baby rays inside their dead mothers in order to add to the mothers' weight.

Every year, graceful cownose rays, a type of eagle ray, migrate to the Chesapeake Bay to mate and give birth to their pups. As they glide along the water's surface, bowfishers competing for prize money descend upon them in boats and shoot them point blank with arrows, impale them, club them repeatedly with metal bats, and pile them into a box to suffocate. Many of the victims are pregnant.

Fish Feel teamed up with SHARK to document this outrageous and perverted animal abuse. "There is no valid justification for the vicious massacre of these gentle creatures who are merely trying to survive. Scientists and the government have expressed disapproval of such reckless slaughter, and of the grave environmental consequences that could result," said Mary Finelli, President of Fish Feel.

"These people have no respect for life. They shoot arrows into these beautiful animals swimming slowly at the surface, many whom may be pregnant, and drag them out of the water by hooks, beat them mercilessly with metal clubs, and then throw them still alive into boxes where they slowly suffocate to death. Then, we saw bowhunters dumping the bodies into the river like garbage. This is an atrocity and it must end now," added Michael Gurwitz, a Fish Feel Director.

Additional cownose ray killing contests were also held on June 27, 2015 at Buzzards Point Marina in Reedville, VA, and on June 28, 2015 at Hallowing Point Marina in Prince Frederick, MD. The image below, which shows the rays in a dumpster as if they were trash, was taken at the Reedville slaughter.

Request that the governors of these states call for an immediate and permanent end to these savage killing contests.

Cincinnati, OH: NeuroMovement for Children with Special Needs Workshop 2015




Mario's Mission

    Hi my name is Mario Novello and I was born on Sept.17th 2008. I was diagnosed when I was 5 months old with a very rare chromosomal 4 deletion which causes me significant developmental delays, low muscle tone, a leaking vessel in my heart along with a hole in my heart which needs to be repaired when I am 4 yrs. old. I have a short stature; distinctive facial features, relative macrocephaly (an abnormally large head), seizures, brain malformations and my most recent diagnosis are renal disease and hypothyroidism. My condition is so rare that there are only a few individuals in the medical literature reported with deletions in the same region of chromosome 4, although the exact breakpoints of the deletion are unique to me. My geneticist told my mom and dad that I need frequent abdominal ultrasounds and blood work to screen for signs of tumors, since early detection can improve my survival. I have this done four times a year. I see 7 specialists who are all trying to help me and learn from me so that they may be able to help other children who are diagnosed with my condition. I cannot talk, sit up, crawl or walk. I have my very own customized wheelchair which helps me to sit up nice and tall. I go to school twice a week where I receive physical, speech and occupational therapies and my teachers sing and play with me. (I really like that). My parents also take me to rehab once a week for additional therapies. Love Mario

Love Mario







When you lose your whole world in a moment, where do you turn? On a cold November morning, Joseph Luzzi, a Dante scholar and professor at Bard College, found himself racing to the hospital—his wife, Katherine, eight-and-a-half months pregnant, had been in a horrible car accident. In one terrible instant, Luzzi became both a widower and a first-time father.
