Congress - Pass the Global Anti-Poaching Act to Save Rare Animals and Fight Terrorism

  • by: Sue Lee
  • recipient: U. S. Congress and Senators

Illegal wildlife trafficking is truly horrible. Rare rhinos are gunned down for their horns. Manta rays are killed for their gills. The tusks of elephants are ripped from their faces.  And that's just the tip of the iceberg. 

The black market is awash in wildlife parts, illegally culled and sold from some some 350 million plants and animals each year.

Illegal wildlife trafficking not only threatens the survival of entire species. It also funds global terror networks that threaten the peace and security of people around the world.  

Fortunately, there is something that you and I can do to eliminate these dangerous and destructive crimes against nature. The Global Anti-Poaching Act was just introduced in Congress, and your US Representatives need to know that you want to see it become law. This vital legislation would more severely punish major wildlife tracking offenses and improve law enforcement and international coordination.

Take action now. Sign this urgent petition now to save rare animals and weaken criminal syndicates around the world.

Dear Decision Maker, 

I strongly encourage you to do everything you can to support The Global Anti-Poaching Actl (H. R. 2494) . This important legislation would more severely punish major wildlife tracking offenses and improve law enforcement and international coordination.

Illegal wildlife trafficking not only threatens the survival of entire species. It also funds global terror networks that threaten the peace and security of people around the world. 

I hope you will do everything in your power to save rare animals and weaken criminal syndicates around the world by supporting H.R. 2494.

Sincerely,

[Your name]
