Help us pass Save Africa’s Big 5 bill in New York
We need your help to make 2018 the year New York passes Friends of Animals’ signature legislation, Save Africa’s Big 5, which would stop the trophy hunting of Africa’s Big 5 in its tracks! The bill, co-sponsored by Senator Tony Avella , D-11th, and Assemblyman Luis Sepulveda, D-87th, would ban the importation, possession, sale or transportation of the African elephant, lion, leopard and black and white rhino or their body parts, in New York, the busiest port of entry in the U.S. All of these animals are threatened or endangered species.
We will be rallying for the bill and against trophy hunting alongside Compassionworks International at the Worldwide Rally Against Trophy Hunting on Feb. 3 in NYC. If you live in or near NYC, please join us in front of Eric Trump’s apartment building (he is a trophy hunter), 110 Central Park S. We will be there from 11 a.m. – 12 p.m. and then will march to nearby Trump Tower. Posters will be provided. RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org if you plan on attending. And please spread the word.
