Political yeah or nah and bahai faith

Hi
My title wasn't very well written haha... Anyways I was wondering how supporting a social cause and signing petitions and the view of the faith..
A example of this
I am a deep wolf lover and environmental lover. In the area certain people want to kill wolves left and right and I would go as far as to saying they are killing contests. The Defenders of wildlife (a org I regularly donate to) have petitions and such and I participate in them. Are they stepping the bounds with the political rules of the Bahai Faith? Sorry about spelling and shortened text.. I do this on my cell phone lol.
Thank you!

Vox,
I don't think protecting wildlife and the environment is political unless you make it so. As Baha'is, we are to be stewards of land and wildlife. If it turns political you might have to jump ship, but my personal opinion is you are doing the right thing. You just don't want to participate in divisive activities or tactics.

Best of luck!

Dear Vox I support Becky in this, to sign a petition is OK, and to support protection of wildlife, but remember moderation, do not become too zealous as in the case of the green movement or Animal liberation, who at times break the law, we do not break laws, just don't join or support any political side of Government.

Loving regards
Bill
