President Obama Has Signed the END Wildlife Trafficking Act

October 7, 2016

Today, President Barack Obama took an important step in the fight against the illegal killing of wildlife, signing the END Wildlife Trafficking Act into law.

To date, poachers and traffickers have often slipped through the cracks. This bill will provide more resources to protect wildlife around the world, including training and other support for those working on the ground.

These defenseless creatures can't protect themselves from the bullets, poisons, and traps of the humans stalking them. But we can. And we must.
