YOUR MESSAGE

Dear Legislator,

As your constituent, I am writing to ask you to please cosponsor the Prohibiting Threatened and Endangered Creature Trophies (ProTECT) Act, which will prohibit the import of any trophy of a species listed under the Endangered Species Act (ESA) into the United States and trophy hunting in the United States of any ESA-listed species.

The United States is the world's largest importer of animal trophies, including federally protected species such as elephants, leopards and lions--wildlife whose populations are in decline. Trophy hunting not only exacerbates pressures on already imperiled species, but also is counterproductive to the millions of taxpayer dollars spent on conserving at-risk species and on combating wildlife trafficking and poaching.

In addition, trophy hunting of ESA-listed species and the import of their parts is highly unpopular with U.S. voters. In November 2017, after learning about a U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service decision to allow certain imports of elephants and lions from two African countries, President Donald Trump supported putting a hold on the decision, calling trophy hunting of elephants and other animals "a horror show."

A 2017 poll conducted by Remington Research Group showed that 80% of respondents opposed the hunting and U.S. import of ESA-listed African lions and African elephants. This figure includes 80% of Republicans, 84% of Democrats and 76% of nonpartisan voters.

Signed,
[Your Name]
