Tell Your Senator to Oppose The Sportsmen's Act 2013 (S. 1335)

In Defense of AnimalsThe formula to protect wild animals from cruelty is simple: anything that the Safari Club International (SCI) supports MUST be opposed.

The SCI, an atrocious trophy hunter organization,  is currently lobbying heavily for S 1335, sponsored by Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-AK). If passed, the Act would make hunting and trapping a priority to be considered on federal lands-public lands that are owned and funded by us, the Public.

The bill would allow hunting and trapping in designated wilderness areas, allow “volunteers” to help in the killing of so-called “excess” animals on Federal land, including National Parks, increase the share of federal lands turned into shooting ranges, and legalize the transporting of bows through national parks and the importation of “trophies” from polar bears kills in Canada.

Please us the form below to contact your Senator immediately and tell her/him to vote “NO” on the Sportsmen's Act 2013 (S. 1335). The threats our wildlife face come from many directions- loss of habitat, trophy hunters, poaching, conflicts with humans and or human-based activities, as well as the hardships of living in the wild as predator or prey. The last thing we need right now is to open our national parks or wilderness areas that currently do not allow hunting to more killing.

What you can do:1) Use the letter below to contact your Senator immediately and tell her/him to vote “NO” on the Sportsmen's Act 2013 (S. 1335)

2) Share this information with your friends, family, and colleagues using the Facebook and Twitter buttons at the top.
