Join CACH (Campaign Against Canned Hunting) in the Global March for Lions to protest trophy hunting and canned hunting of lions.
We will be in Washington Square Park from 11 am to 1pm by the statue of Garibaldi.
There will be posters and flyers available to educate the public about the horrors and issues of canned hunting and why it needs to be outlawed. We will also have petitions to sign to pressure the US Fish and Wildlife Service to list the African Lion as endangered. This important step will make it illegal to bring lion "trophies" back into the USA. As 55% of canned lion hunters come from North America, it is vital to shut down the economics of this.
