There are two opposing things going on in the United States Government right now. First, President Obama has stepped up to the plate and allotted $10million USD towards the poaching crisis in Africa! Thatdeserves a huge shout out of thanks and support, so if you haven’t already, PLEASE send a note of thanks (you can do so on your own by sending a comment through the White House or use this template provided by the Wildlife Conservation Society).
However, at the same exact moment, congress is considering cutting the budget for biodiversity programs by 40%! So again, please send a note asking for the US to continue to support conservation especially when it comes to illegal willdife trade! You can send your own comment to your representative or use the template provided by the Wildlife Conservation Society. THANK YOU for taking a few moments of your day to add your signatures to two very important issues.
FOR THE ELEPHANTS! TRUMPET ON!
