Join Us In Portland April 24 To Help Stop Wildlife Trafficking
April 11, 2016
Please join us in Portland on Sunday, April 24, to help gather signatures for the Save Endangered Animals Oregon ballot measure campaign. We will meet at 2 p.m. at the downtown Veggie Grill, 508 SW Taylor Street (look for people carrying a photo like the one above). We will have an orientation and then head out in groups for two hours of signature gathering.
As part of the coalition supporting Save Endangered Animals Oregon, we are helping gather the roughly 125,000 signatures needed to put a measure before voters in November to ban trade within Oregon in the parts of endangered animals from other parts of the world (including elephants, rhinos, whales, sea turtles and several species of big cats). The idea is to combat the epidemic poaching of these animals by making it harder to buy and sell their parts. Washington and California recently passed similar measures. You can learn more about the Oregon measure here.
