Sign Now to Fight Wildlife Trafficking, Poaching, and Terrorism

This alert is no longer active, but here for reference. Animals still need your help.

Illegal trafficking and poaching have devastated the world’s largest remaining elephant population. Legislators have now written a bill to protect these animals and their wild homes, but it won’t pass without your urgent help!  Please act now to save these threatened animals and their habitats by supporting the DELTA Act!

The DELTA Act stands for ‘Defending Economic Livelihoods and Threatened Animals’ (H.R. 4819). It is a bipartisan bill that would enhance the ability of the U.S. to protect one of the largest and most significant populations of elephants in the world - the elephants who live in the vital Okavango River Basin, a unique ecosystem which ranges through Angola, Botswana, and Namibia. This bill authorizes the Secretary of State and the Administrator of the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) to provide technical assistance to governments and local communities for water and natural resource management. 

If the bill passes, the U.S. would have the ability to support local law enforcement, park rangers, and community leaders to initiate and strengthen programs that combat the illegal poaching of threatened species and wildlife trafficking.

Wildlife trafficking is among the most lucrative criminal activities worldwide, and known to provide funding to deadly terrorist organizations. This bill allocates funding to prevent criminal and terror financing in these impoverished countries and stimulate economic growth.

The DELTA Act was introduced by Senators Rob Portman (R-OH) and Tom Udall (D-NM), co-chairs of the Senate International Conservation Caucus, and passed the House of Representatives on July 17. This bill must pass the Senate to become law, and we need your support to make sure this happens!
