Stop Trump Family From Killing More Endangered Wildlife

Target: W. Laird Hamberlin, Chief Executive Officer of Safari Club International

Goal: Cancel the trophy hunting of endangered species and break ties with Donald Trump, Jr.

Donald Trump Jr. is auctioning off a week-long trophy hunting trip to Alaska at the Safari Club International’s (SCI) trophy hunting convention. The yacht-based expedition, described as a “dream hunt,” is starting at $10,000 and will include killing Sitka black tailed deer and sea ducks. This is advertised alongside other prizes that include the opportunity to kill an elephant in Namibia; an all-inclusive package to Zimbabwe to hunt buffalo, giraffe and wildebeest; and a 10-day crocodile hunt in South Africa.

This comes just weeks after ProPublica reported that Trump Jr. killed an Argali sheep, a rare species of endangered sheep that is considered a national treasure in Mongolia. Trump Jr. was given a permit to kill the sheep after his father, Donald Trump, negotiated with the Mongolian government. Trump Jr. has received criticism for being an avid trophy hunter. Ironically, SCI calls him a conservationist, and says the proceeds from the auction will go to “wildlife conservation efforts.” Animal rights activists and environmental groups have commented regarding their disapproval of the auction and their confusion over the SCI’s skewed definition of conservation. Kitty Block, President and CEO of the Humane Society of the United States, said “This annual event is the largest meeting in the world of people who celebrate the senseless killing, buying and selling of dead animals for bragging rights.”

Trump Jr. is unabashedly boastful of the pleasure he receives both from killing endangered animals and “triggering” individuals over the topic of death. Sign below to demand the SCI cancel the auction to stop Trump Jr. from promoting trophy hunting and to protect wildlife such as deer, elephants and buffalo.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Mr. Laird Hamberlin,

The human species rely on the intricate balance of animal ecosystems for survival. In the midst of a climate change and human-induced global extinction crisis, we must work to conserve the critical species we have left. Continuing to host events such as the SCI convention and promote the killing of endangered wildlife under the guise of “proceeds going to conservation efforts” is contradictory and only further exacerbates the problem.

It is inappropriate not only to allow Trump Jr. to auction off a trophy hunting trip for such a large amount of money, but also to use him as a symbol to further promote the senseless killing of wildlife to the public. In order to ensure the livelihood of our unique array of critical species, I demand that you cancel the trophy hunting convention and stop Trump Jr. from auctioning his trip.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]
