We advanced state and federal legislation to regulate the wildlife trade and conserve rare and threatened species; advocated for better protections for wildlife at CITES; exposed the ongoing cruelty of trapping and the exotic pet trade with two ground-breaking reports; collected unwanted furs to deploy to wildlife rescue centers to bring comfort and warmth to orphaned animals; and much more! Read all about our successes below!
