Victory defending wildlife from illegal fur exports!
We took the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) to court over its international fur export program because it facilitates the export of thousands of bobcat and wolf pelts each year yet operates with little oversight or public review. The USFWS neglected to carefully consider the program’s effect on wildlife, including threatened Canada lynx, that are accidentally caught and killed in traps set for non-threatened Canada lynx, hat are accidentally caught and killed in traps set for non-threatened wildlife like bobcats. The court ruled in favor, requiring The USFWS to review its policies in a way that will better prevent the rare Canada lynx from being killed by trappers.
Thank you @welc_org!
