Worldwide Rally Against Trophy Hunting
Join the Worldwide Rally Against Trophy Hunting and speak out against the senseless slaughter of wildlife at the Safari Club International annual convention!
The Reno WRATH event will also be a demonstration against the Nevada bear trophy hunt. A companion full-sized billboard will be mounted in Reno approximately a half-mile from the Safari Club International convention site.
January 12th: 11am-1pm
Exact meeting location to be determined. Parking information will also be posted closer to the date.
Posters and literature will be provided. If you choose to make your own, please do not use violent or aggressive language. These will be peaceful, educational demonstrations focused on raising public awareness. We expect everyone in attendance to remain civil and obey public laws.
Your local rally leader is Carrie LeBlanc, Executive Director of CompassionWorks International. CWI has created and is hosting the Worldwide Rally, which is entering its 4th year.
About the Worldwide Rally Against Trophy Hunting:
On January 12, 2019, voices across the world will join together to raise awareness about the ego-driven and senseless murder of countless wild animals by members of Safari Club International and other "trophy hunters."
The main rally, in Reno, stands as a protest against the Safari Club International Conference and the 47th anniversary of the "Ultimate Sportsmen's Market." At the market, the lives of hundreds of beautiful animals are sold off to the highest bidder. Join us in Reno, or host a solidarity rally in your own community! Learn more: notyourtrophy.org.
CWI supports legislation that prohibits the ability of hunters to bring their "trophies" back into the United States. We stand with conservation groups across the world in developing strategies for sustaining and growing populations of wild animals that do not involve their senseless massacre.
Cecil the lion...we will never forget.
To obtain more information about WRATH, to host a rally, or to find out about a rally in your area, please visit notyourtrophy.org. Updated information will appear in the coming weeks and new rallies will be posted as we receive notice of them.
CWI believes in the power of peaceful, educational animal advocacy.
