The primate trade continues to be a serious issue, both in the U.S. and abroad. Read Pet Shop Primates, a new report commissioned by Born Free Foundation, which explores the sale of primates in licensed British pet shops. And, if you haven’t already, please urge your legislator to support the Captive Primate Safety Act (H.R. 2856/S. 1463) to protect primates in the U.S.
Fewer than 500 Ethiopian wolves are clinging to life in the Ethiopian mountains. They face significant risk due to the spread of rabies from local domestic dogs, who are owned by people who graze their livestock nearby. Born Free USA is working to contribute significantly to this emergency rabies vaccination program, and we need your help right away. Please make any donation that you can, and we will restrict 100% of it to go to this vital, life-saving program.
Your Senator (Barbara Boxer in California or David Vitter in Louisiana) is one of the two lead sponsors of the Captive Primate Safety Act (S. 1463), and so is in a unique position of power to push it forward. However, the Senator needs to hear from constituents that this is a priority. California residents, reach Boxer’s office at (202) 224-3553. Louisiana residents, reach Vitter’s office at (202) 224-4623. Then, send a follow-up email. Click the "Read More" link below for more details.

On Monday, Illinois Governor Pat Quinn signed a bill (S.B. 3049) that will protect three magnificent Illinois species: the gray wolf, the American black bear, and the cougar. This bill adds these imperiled species to the list of protected species under the Illinois Wildlife Act. Thank the Governor for his compassionate action!
