IFAW Spokesperson Speaks Out Against Dallas Safari Club Auctioning of License to Hunt Endangered Species!
Jeff Flocken ..................................
The IFAW recently released this blistering statement by Jeff Flocken condemning the Dallas Safari Club for auctioning a license to hunt and kill a black rhino. “This auction tells the world that some Americans will pay anything for the opportunity to kill one of the last of a species. It also sends a dangerous message that these iconic and disappearing animals are worth more as dead trophies to be mounted and hung on a wall in a Texas mansion, than living in the wild in Africa. This is not conservation, and it’s a sad joke that Dallas Safari Club is trying to call it that.”
In this thought provoking episode of Max A Pooch’s Awesome Animal Advocates, Jeff Flocken discusses this issue and shares with us some of the important work the IFAW is doing.
