Join us to protest Safari Club International's NY fundraiser in Manhattan

May 01, 2017 | Take Action / Hunting & Wildlife Management

 

What: Join CompassionWorks International (CWI) and Friends of Animals (FoA) for our anti-trophy hunting protest/rally outside the Safari Club International’s  (SCI) New York Tri-State Chapter’s annual fundraiser dinner and auction in Manhattan. Informational postcards to hand out to the public as well as posters will be provided.
 
When and Where: May 13, 2017. Begins promptly at 5:30 p.m. as cocktail hour for the annual fundraiser begins at 6 p.m. Outside the Columbus Citizens Foundation, 8 East 69th St. New York, NY, 10021. (We will be there until at least 6:30...probably 7 p.m.)
 
Why: To raise awareness about legislation drafted by FoA currently moving through the New York legislature. Cecil’s Law (S1883/A4010) would ban the importation, possession, sale or transportation in New York of the African elephant, lion, leopard, and black and white rhinos—all threatened and endangered species.
 
And to dispel the myth perpetuated by SCI, that without trophy hunters, African governments would have no money for conservation. The newest data reveals that trophy hunting is economically useless. So if the reason for trophy hunting is “conservation,” but it is not contributing to conservation, it’s time for a ban. Plain and simple, we as a society know better.
 
If you have any questions, email Nicole Rivard at nrivard@friendsofanimals.org. And please let us know you are attending by emailing Nicole directly so we know how many posters to bring.
