To: Tucson Wildlife Advocates
Arizonans for Wildlife launched a statewide campaign to ban the trophy hunting of Arizona’s wild cats. Trophy hunting is where the primary motivation is to kill an animal in order to display its body, whole or in part, or for bragging rights but not for subsistence. 230,000 signatures are needed in order to qualify for the November 2018 election.
Can you help make history in Arizona?
Opponents are already mobilizing and you can bet they will put up a strong fight to continue hunting our iconic mountain lions and bobcats.
Please join Arizonans for Wildlife, HSUS, Sierra Club, Center for Biological Diversity, Animal Defense League of Arizona and many other groups to Stop Trophy Hunting of Big Cats in Arizona. Wayne Pacelle, CEO of the Humane Society of the United States, (HSUS), will be in Tucson on Thursday, October 12, as part of a statewide kickoff. Learn why it’s important to advocate for the big cats and how to collect signatures.
The event will be from 6-8 PM at the YWCA, 525 N. Bonita Ave., Tucson, AZ, 85745. Doors open at 5:45 PM. RSVP
If you can’t make the event but want to be kept in the loop and/or volunteer for signatures from registered Arizona voters – sign up here.
