Wild animals are targets for poaching, captive hunting, the fur trade, the exotic pet trade and more.
Every year, more than 1,300 hippos are killed only to have their teeth, skin, feet, tails and other parts traded internationally. End the import of hippo parts, products and trophies by urging the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to list hippos under the Endangered Species Act.
Some species are increasingly at risk as they continue to be used and sold, either alive or for their parts. Populations are devastated and the methods used to capture, transport and kill animals can cause tremendous suffering.
Exchanges hands in the wild animal trade globally each year, an amount second only to arms and drug smuggling.
Are killed before they reach three months of age in the Canadian harp seal slaughter each year.
Are estimated to live in the United States—but fewer than 400 of them can be found in accredited zoos.
Stand with us in condemning the killing of wildlife for trophies, both in the United States and around the world. Pledge to do what you can to end this cruel and unsportsmanlike pastime.
