Tallahassee, FL: Humane Lobby Day 2012 - January 17
The Humane Society of the United States, The ASPCA, and GREY2K USA invite our members, supporters, and other animal advocates to participate in the Florida Humane Lobby Day in Tallahassee, and help make a tremendous difference for animals.This is an exciting opportunity to meet directly with your elected officials and their staff about legislation that will significantly impact animals. There will be a briefing with tips for lobbying and an overview of pending animal legislation, which will prepare you to meet your elected officials and advocate for animals.Legislators are most motivated when their constituents make time to meet face-to-face. By attending Lobby Day 2012, you can be instrumental in helping to end greyhound racing, crack down on animal fighting, support spay/neuter programs, and more.
This meeting is free, but please RSVP to ensure adequate space and materials. Contact Nancy Krzycki if you have additional questions.

For those who missed it last summer:
The wild tiger is among the world's most endangered species, pushed to the brink of extinction in large part by poachers who are killing the animals for profit. The illicit tiger parts trade is worth billions of dollars and nowhere is it more active than in China, the world's leading consumer of illegal wildlife. Nearly two decades ago, the Chinese government instituted a series of conservation efforts ostensibly aimed at saving the tiger from what appeared to be its imminent demise, but correspondent Adam Yamaguchi goes undercover and exposes flagrant and widespread violation of China's tiger trade laws. At the heart of Yamaguchi's investigation are China's many tiger parks, touted as safe-haven preserves. In truth, as evidenced by the material that "Vanguard" gathers, these parks may be anything but.
