Tuesday Tails. A Lion's Tale....The work goes on....

You remember Cecil, yes?  Well, now we have some teeth in the law, because people from all walks of life stood up on their hind legs and did things!


Cecil thanks you.

From the Humane Society International Newsletter:

"Knowing that trophy hunters are motivated by the prospect of displaying their kills in their homes, we immediately began calling on the companies that contribute to the problem by transporting such trophies to stop doing so. I’m happy to report that so far, 43 airlines and carriers — as well as several major sea freight shipping companies — have announced or reaffirmed bans on wildlife trophy shipments. We’re working hard to add more to that list, including UPS, Fedex and South African Airways."

This took a lot of work, by animal rights agencies, and a willingness to meet these agencies in a common goal, to get this down.  Human Race, we just might make it.  This action should make us all feel better about ourselves.

  2. You're welcome, Karen. There is another place of interest to look at total numbers of endangered and species world wide, the ECOS site: https://ecos.fws.gov/tess_public/pub/Boxscore.do. Hope that link works.
