One of the most effective ways to stop trophy hunting is to ban import and transport of those trophies. Making it impossible for hunters to take their kill home makes hunting far less attractive and will reduce the number of animals killed each year. This transport ban would have no effect on indigineous cultures and people who must hunt for survival. Only Trophy Hunters will be stopped. Please sign today and share!
ALL signatures and comments will STILL be delivered to Delta, even though they have agreed to the ban -- THANK YOU!
To Richard Anderson, CEO Delta Airlines
Dear Mr. Anderson, I request that Delta Airlines adopt the same ban on animal trophy transport as other leading airlines Air France, KLM, and Emirates Airlines. This restriction should be applicable to all animal hunting trophies protected under the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES), as well as species that are not threatened with extinction now, meaning all CITES & Non-CITES species.
Delta Airlines should support international governments, and intergovernmental and non-governmental organizations that are managing wildlife population towards sustaining the task to eliminate illegal trade and transportation of hunting trophies worldwide and saving wildlife heritage.
Delta Airlines is a leader in world travel and should also be a leader in animal preservation.
