Help Put Pressure On The Trump Administration To Ban Import Of Wild Animal “Trophies” In The U.S. Sign Petition Now!

As WAN reported earlier this week, the Trump administration quietly shifted its position on allowing the import of elephant and lion trophies into the United States from Africa.

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service announced the controversial decision to approve certain trophy permits on a “case-by-case” basis along with an official March 1st memo documenting that the change in policy went into effect “immediately.”

This is not acceptable and the move is squarely at odds with public opinion in the United States where 82% of Americans surveyed support banning lion trophies, and 83% support banning elephant trophies.

That is why WAN’s partner Care2 is calling on Arizona Congressman Raul Grijalva, one of the most stalwart animal defenders in Congress, to introduce legislation to reverse the Trump administration’s trophy import decision as soon as possible.

By adding your name to the petition today, you will help send the message to Congressman Grijalva that conservation-minded people around the world reject the hunting for sport of our world’s imperiled species.

Animal Welfare Institute (AWI) responded to the decision by issuing an urgent call for action requesting that people help spread the word by sending in their own letter through AWI, available on their website. Further, people are encouraged to write directly to Donald Trump, and the organization will forward your message to the President.

Please fill out the information requested HERE!

Near the turn of the 20th century, Africa was home to between three and five million elephants. Tragically, now less than half a million remain. Africa’s lions have seen similar declines, with lion numbers declining by 42 percent in just the last 20 years.

The Trump administration’s reversal of the ban will almost inevitably increase poaching of these rare animals.

It’s time this cruel and senseless loss of life ends!
