Protest Safari Club International’s NY fundraiser in Manhattan

*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
