Everett Herald: Fight ivory, other species trafficking here

Friday, October 9, 2015

We are honored to have earned the support of the Everett Herald:

“Washington state is a long way from the African savanna and Asian forests, but our position as a state with major ports of entry requires state residents to address the issue of endangered animals and the trafficking in ivory, fur, meat, shells, organs and more. While other countries have a responsibility to protect their wildlife, the United States and individual states have a responsibility to reduce the demand that encourages poaching. I-1401 gives law enforcement another tool to fight trafficking, encourages other states to adopt their own laws and also offers an opportunity to learn more about the animals now threatened with extinction and work for their protection.”
