There are animal-related news stories and animal-based organizations that deal directly with certain aspects/subject areas of animal treatment other than poaching, and that's their specific foci. In this instance I am thinking about topics/associations/groups that examine such things as the (mis)treatment of animals in zoos, circuses, and in similar, display-oriented contexts/venues (such as throughout south and southeast Asia where, for example, elephants are "on display" in a variety of settings, many of which have come under heavy scrutiny of late, due to the callous manner in which those elephants are treated by their owners and/or mahouts). There are also countless associations that deal with broadly-defined "animal welfare" concerns--such as the many groups that rescue resident pets and feral animals, the animal cruelty & humane agencies, as well as conservation & environmental groups that investigate and educate the public about things such as animal abuse and deaths due to natural disasters, or illness from environmental pollution, or deaths from mass die-offs due to yet-to-be-explained phenomena.
All these groups deal first and foremost with animal concerns, but poaching is not their principal subject area, it's not the one thing these groups are working to eradicate. NoAnimalPoaching! is not a nature organization, our focus is not on conservation, environmental degredation, animal rescue, the use of animals in product testing, or quality of life concerns for animals, or the morality of eating animals as part of a human diet, or with any other, companion topic solely because it may have (in)direct relevance to animals. As such, I do not believe that NAP should include news stories/engage in projects of this nature. We deal specifically with animal poaching and animal poaching only.
