End the Transport of Hunting Trophies
This petition had 284,113 supporters
Endangered and threatened animals from around the world, including rhinos, elephants, and lions, like Cecil, are being hunted and killed for fun. While Delta Airlines, American Airlines, and other multinational companies have taken a stand to ban the transport of hunting trophies, the heads and bodies of animals used for taxidermy, FedEx still allows for hunting trophies of exotic animals to be shipped around the world. Please sign my petition asking FedEx to stop supporting the destruction of endangered wildlife by banning the shipment of hunting trophies.
In the days following Delta Airlines announcement to no longer ship cruel hunting trophies of the top five most endangered animals (lions, leopards, elephants, rhinoceros, and buffalo), FedEx publicly stated that they still consider hunting trophies “legitimate shipments.”
As the world’s largest shipping company and largest cargo airline, FedEx is in a prime position to help protect wild animals from dangerous hunting and poaching, but only if they take a firm stand against trophy hunters and those who kill for fun. As more airlines and carriers announce their decision to support the environment and animal protection, FedEx’s voice is crucial to turning the tide on the future of trophy hunting and protection of wildlife.
We know that airlines care about their customers and are listening, but does FedEx care?
Please sign my petition asking FedEx to join top airlines who committed to stop supporting trophy hunters who killed Africa’s wildlife.
