$10,000...$100,000...$350,000. Sold!

Over the weekend, the Dallas Safari Club auctioned off an opportunity to hunt and kill one of the world’s last remaining black rhinos for $350,000. These critically endangered animals are now under additional pressure from trophy hunters.

If the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service issues an import permit, the high bidder will be allowed to showcase the dead rhino in his home. 

There’s still something you can do to help stop this and to help protect rhinos from American trophy hunters. Please urge the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service not to issue the import permit.

Two to three rhinos are illegally slaughtered every day, and if current rates continue, they could be wiped off the planet by the year 2023. Fewer than 5,000 black rhinos remain, and placing a $350,000 bounty on one of them is not only cruel, it reinforces the idea that killing such an animal is an acceptable option. This will only lead to further pressures on the species.

It's not too late to stop this from happening. Take action today and ask the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to refuse to issue the import permit.

Thank you for all you do for animals.

Sincerely,
 Andrew Rowan
