Wildlife and our last remaining wild places are being destroyed because of human action or inaction and because of our own short –term greed.

WCS (that’s the Wildlife Conservation Society) has emailed to warn that US government programmes helping to conserve species such as tigers, elephants, rhinos and others are under threat.

WCS works to save wildlife and wild places in nearly 60 countries and across the ocean.

Trump’s Administration is looking at cuts to programs that protect wildlife.

WCS need as many people as possible from the US to urge their Congress members to support international programmes.

These include programmes such as the USAID Biodiversity Program and the Multinational Species Conservation Fund. Key efforts at USAID and the Department of State fight international wildlife trafficking programmes.  The Global Environment Facility which plays a key role fighting the wildlife trafficking which is driving the slaughter of elephants and rhinos.  Programmes that conserve vulnerable species in the wild and protect the last wild places on earth are at risk. 

If you are in the US, Please tell Congress right now: stand up for wildlife.

If you are not living in the US and don’t have a Congress member, please share, share, share, the message people can sign.  Sharing is vital because it spreads the word.
