@nashville_animal_advocacy http://huffp.st/BmWbwwx 1) The USFWS is taking comments through November 24 on whether they should establish this “wildlife conservation council” to promote trophy hunting. Send your comments to: joshua_winchell @fws.gov RE:  FWS–HQ–R–2017–N118 2) Contact the US Fish and Wildlife Service to explain why reversing the ban is bad news for elephants and lions. Their contact details are available at: https://www.fws.gov/external-affairs/contacts.html. 3) Contact the Secretary of the Interior, Ryan Zinke, imploring him to take a stand against reversing the ban. Whilst Mr Zinke appears to support hunting in various forms, it’s important to register your disappointment and show that citizens do not support the proposed changes. Contact details are here: https://www.doi.gov/contact-us 4) Write to your representatives to express your disappointment at the recent news and implore them to do what they can to prevent a lifting of the ban. A great resource on why hunting should not be included in conservation policies is here: https://www.thedodo.com/does-hunting-help-conservation-1389284014.html More information here: https://blog.humanesociety.org/wayne/2017/11/interior-department-allow-imports-elephant-lion-trophies-africa-reversing-obama-policies.html http://thehill.com/policy/energy-environment/360614-trump-to-allow-imports-of-african-elephant-trophies #bantrophyhunting #animalrights #huntingismurder #liveandletlive #huntingisnotconservation #elephants #lions #conservation #trophyhunting

Stand up and roar for our lions as well!!! #Repost @worldanimalnews ( @get_repost) ・・・ Appallingly, there is more than one elephant in the room today as details have emerged that U.S. wildlife officials began issuing permits for lion trophies hunted in Zambia and Zimbabwe on October 20th of this year.- - U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service unfathomably using the same misguided claims that regulated hunting of elephants will further benefit "Con" servation efforts have already been applied to #lions as well. - Tragically, there is only an estimated 17,000 – 19,000 African lions remaining in the wild. We must work together collectively to keep the ban on the import of elephants, lions, and other species who are hunted for so-called “trophies”. - - Contact the Secretary of the Interior, Ryan Zinke, imploring him to take a stand against reversing the ban, as well as the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. A template letter, which includes contact details for where to send your message is on 🙏❤️🐘👉www.WorldAnimalNews.com - - Thank you for your voices!!! 🌍👉 @worldanimalnews @peace_4animals
