Save the elephants. Save the snow leopards.

Elephants. Snow leopards. Rhinos. Mountain gorillas. Leatherback sea turtles.

Too many animals are endangered, at risk of disappearing from our Earth entirely.

This has been sped up by unlawful trafficking and poaching of exotic animals, ones that our grandchildren will only see in pictures and books if we don't take this fight on right here and right now.

I have a plan to fight the overexploitation and hunting of endangered animals.

Join our effort and sign the petition: Urge Congress to fight the poaching of endangered animals right away.

How it works: our plan would allow the State Department to offer rewards for whistleblowers who come forward with tips or information that disrupt or shut down traffickers and poachers.

Our bipartisan plan has the support of top environmental and animal welfare groups, but we need to build a grassroots movement to ensure this gets done in Washington D.C.

Help us fight illegal poaching and animal trafficking: Urge Congress to stand with us today.
