One month ago,Buzzfeed Newsexposed theInternational Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) for having connections to the industry.

The IUCN is possibly the most important agency charged with protecting the world’s animal species.

Ties to trophy from such an important organization is worrisome for those truly concerned with the conservation of animal species, especially with thesixth mass extinction under way.

Buzzfeed News found that the NGO of the IUCN chair of the expert group on giraffes and okapis discloses donations from the , the largest hunting association in the world.

This wasn’t the only revelation though. Members of the IUCN were against Chanel’s ban on the use of exotic skins.

The report also explained IUCN members’ connections to trophy hunting, lobbying by trophy to the organization, and trophy hunting proponents on the IUCN Council.

As this states, “How can an organization help save an animal if they work with, or even get funds from sponsors that promote hunting them?”

Sign this petition to tell the International Union for Conservation of Nature to do what it was created to do: conserve nature and to purge all members that profit from trophy hunting.

What you can do

Support ‘Fighting for Wildlife’ by donating as little as $1 – It only takes a minute. Thank you.

 

 

Fighting for Wildlife supports approved wildlife conservation organizations, which spend at least 80 percent of the money they raise on actual fieldwork, rather than administration and fundraising. When making a donation you can designate for which type of initiative it should be used – wildlife, oceans, forests or climate.
