ACTION NEEDED: save a rhino with your signature!

(Above info graph from WWF)

ACTION ITEM: The Dallas Safari Club International (SCI) has announced they may cancel the endangered rhino hunt! The club has stated they:

will cancel the hunt if a federal agency denies the winning bidder’s request to bring the dead animal back to the U.S. as a trophy (details can be read here)

Let’s make sure that a federal agency denies the winning bidder’s request!

Please sign theses petitions to ensure that the hunt is cancelled.

We agree strongly with the words of Jeff Flocken, the North American regional director for IFAW (International Fund for Animal Welfare) who states,

Kill it to save it is not only cruel, it’s not conservation…If black rhinos and other dwindling species are to have a future, people must be encouraged to value animals for their inherent worth alive, not their price tag when they are dead.

    Please deny this hunt black and indeed all rhino are on the verge of extinction stop your uneducated trophy hunters killing our animals and deny them the wall hanging because that’s all it’s worth in the end meat on a wall

    Please put a stop to this hunt! The wild animals need our help to survive in today’s world. They have to adjust to all the changes of their natural habitats, the threat of poachers, etc. they deserve a chance of life as nature intended, not to be bought to be hunted down to be mounted on someone’s wall.

    Please put a stop to this hunt!!! The rhino will cease to exist if we don’t do something NOW. They deserve to run around in the wild not be hunted down by some hunter. We implore you PLEASE stop this hunt!
