The SHARE Act would greatly increase wildlife trapping on federal lands, ban the study of toxic lead ammunition, allow the importation of endangered polar bear trophies into the U.S., and halt U.S. efforts to end the ivory trade! Speak up to stop this!

I do hope that people see the hypocrisy and falseness of such articles now. Anything goes for a few $$$$ - but hey! … we’re all forced and manipulated to think down a different lane. Thanks Marie – signed and noted!

Wish I could sign this, but I don't have a US address, and they require full details.

I do so agree with the message - especially:
"Finally, H.R. 2406 would halt efforts by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) to crack down on the illegal ivory trade. African elephants are facing the greatest poaching crisis since the 1980s. More than 140,000 have been killed since January 2012: an average of one every 15 minutes. The appalling scale of poaching is intertwined with violent militias, organized crime, and government corruption in central Africa, including such high-profile terrorist groups as Janjaweed and the Lord's Resistance Army. They fund their activities partially through the lucrative wildlife trade, creating regional instability and threatening U.S. national security. A crucial element of halting this ongoing slaughter is addressing the demand for ivory within our own borders. The federal action undertaken by FWS is a vital component of the Administration's pledge to address wildlife trafficking, and preventing FWS or any other agency from implementing regulations related to ivory would be a major step backward. "

This US/ consumer end of the trail feeds the demand that is causing the rise in poaching in Africa, the poor there finding a source of income, criminal networks & terrorist groups placing themselves in remunerative middlemen positions and thus making income that goes to put the ordinary people at risk ... It has to be blocked effectively, to protect the animals that are part of our world's natural heritage.

Insane to bow to the Big Money and adopt "Sportsmen's" (SHARE) Act :>(

Yes - that story is relevant, Eleonora, thanks for the link!
