In 2015, you sent
more than 2.3 million messages to decision makers, shared 1.3 million times on
social media and spent over 1,300 hours on the phone with legislators, agencies
and corporations -- all to demand better care and protection for animals. You’re
our hero, and theirs!
This year was huge for wildlife. Washington voters approved a
ballot measure to end the trafficking of ten endangered species, California
banned the trade in rhino horn and elephant ivory and the U.S. and China both
made commitments to end the trade in ivory. After the killing of Cecil the
African lion, we got more than 40 airlines to agree to stop shipping lion
trophies and other big game into the U.S. or anywhere across the world.
And it doesn't stop there. Together, with our affiliates, we’ve been on
the ground as the number one provider of animal care and rescue in the world.
Our teams are there to respond when animals are in need -- whether it’s
responding to Hurricane Joaquin in South Carolina, or helping with spay and
neuter programs, developing anti-cruelty laws and training law enforcement in
In 2016 and the years to come, we’ll lead the charge on so
many issues that I know are important to you. Can animals count on you?
From the bottom of my heart,
thank you for everything you do for all animals.
