Trophy Hunting Hurts Endangered Species!

 

Dear Martina,

Lions, elephants, rhinoceros. All are in sharp decline due to poaching, habitat destruction, and animal/human conflicts; and all are frequent targets for trophy hunters.

The numbers for these species are grim: there are only around 20,000 lions, 415,000 elephants, and 23,500 rhinos left in the wild. Far from conserving these animals, trophy hunting is just another deadly pressure on wildlife populations that are already in serious trouble. And, while lions, elephants, and rhinos might be the best-known examples, they are far from the only endangered species put into further danger due to trophy hunting. 

Take Action for Endangered Species

1. Speak out in support of the ProTECT Act to safeguard endangered and threatened species from trophy hunting at home and abroad!

 

2. Share our graphic on social media! Far from protecting imperiled species, trophy hunting further endangers these animals.

Help spread the word about the harm caused by trophy hunting by sharing our infographic:
