KUOW: NRA Fights Paul Allen’s Wildlife Trafficking Measure

Thursday, September 17, 2015

Amy Radil of KUOW has a great story today on our event with the Racing Extinction team to help build momentum for Yes On 1401 to save animals facing extinction.

“University of Washington biologist Sam Wasser got a discouraging phone call last September. ‘I got a call from our Fish and Wildlife agents on the border,’ Wasser said. They said, ‘Sam, I am so frustrated because last week one ton of shark fins came through our port and I had to let it go.’ Wasser wants tougher penalties for wildlife trafficking, which is why he supports Initiative 1401, which would impose new penalties in Washington for trafficking in products like shark fins and ivory.”
