Some state legislators, at the behest of hunting and trapping lobby groups, are making a bid to decimate Michigan wolf populations and remove your rights as voters. A new bill, deceptively titled the "Scientific Fish and Wildlife Conservation Act," is currently under consideration. Please contact your state Representative and ask him or her to oppose this dangerous and unjust bill!
Purpose: This bill would amend the National Wildlife Refuge System Administration Act of 1966 to prohibit the use or possession of body-gripping traps in the National Wildlife Refuge System.
Status: Referred to the House Committee on Natural Resources on 11/15/13.

This information comes four months after the groups’ shocking report, Ivory’s Curse: The Militarization and Professionalization of Poaching in Africa, which detailed the poaching crisis and its links to violent militias, organized crime, and government corruption.
