If you would like to add your voice to help save elephants, please send a letter (see below a copy of a sample letter) to your local Senator as well as your Congressman/woman who hold the purse strings to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Services/Interior Department’s annual budget. Heads up, each state has two senators (find yours here). We encourage you to mail a hard copy of the letter as well as an electronic version. Thank you for helping us continue the good fight!
STARTER LETTER TO YOUR SENATORS:
I am saddened that the Trump Administration has lifted the ban, yet again, on elephant trophy imports into the U.S. The hunting industry generates very little money compared to the conservation and photography tourism sector and, sadly, these figures are often lumped together as “tourism.” I am writing to you directly to voice my personal objection to the lifting of the ban and encourage you to take a similar stand.
