Protect Imperiled Wildlife

Tell the airlines to stop carrying imperiled wildlife “trophies”

The heartbreaking tale of Cecil the lion, killed in Zimbabwe, has aroused worldwide outrage. At a time when large animals like lions and elephants face huge challenges to their survival, the kinds of abuses that led to Cecil’s death cannot be tolerated.

One way of fighting this is to demand that all international passenger and cargo airlines refuse to accept African big game trophies of imperiled species as cargo.

Please join us in calling on all international air carriers to refuse to ship imperiled big game trophies, effective immediately!
