WHAT CAN I DO TO HELP?
If you live in the United States you can take action by contacting your representative urging them to support 'The Big Cat Safety Act' (H.R.1380/S2561)
If you're not sure how to go about doing that the IFAW (International Fund for Animal Welfare) have written a letter that you can simple sign.
Outside the US there are plenty of charities working towards similar goals of wildlife conservation and animal protection. To name a few:
You can also look up sanctuaries local to you and donate directly to them or even volunteer your time if possible! Not ALL sanctuaries are listed on this website but it's a good place to get started!
REMEMBER: Not all donations are financial and you can make a difference by simply spreading awareness and being mindful. Help WHERE and WHEN you can.
