Continuing to be a voice of action for big cat welfare

Now that the election is behind us, I’m reminded that, no matter what party you support, we all need to take a bipartisan approach in order to most effectively address issues of critical importance. I’m thankful for our Congressional champions—Reps. McKeon and Sanchez, and Sen. Kerry—as well as the now 50 co-sponsors of the bill—for exemplifying this type of approach.

Big cat welfare and human safety are unifying issues that we all should stand behind, and urge our lawmakers to do so as well.

The International Fund for Animal Welfare continues to build momentum around The Big Cats and Public Safety Protection Act (H.R. 4122/S.3547) within Congress and beyond. Today, I’m proud to share the New York Times’ Green Blog featuring an interview with yours truly about the Big Cats and Public Safety Protection Act in an article entitled, “The Case Against Big Cat Ownership.” 

Please continue to urge your U.S. Representative and Senator to co-sponsor the critical Big Cats and Public Safety Protection Act (H.R. 4122/S.3547).
