Two Million for $2 Million

The Little Rock Zoo, along with more than 200 accredited zoos nationwide, is joining the effort to ask Congress to increase federal dollars for the Multinational Species Conservation Fund. This fund is administered by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and is dedicated to five types of endangered animals: African elephants, Asian elephants, rhinoceros, tigers, and great apes. These funds have been crucial in supporting the survival of these animals in the wild, with a proven track record of success for more than 14 years. However, in order to continue protecting these endangered species, Congress must spend more on this vital program. The Little Rock Zoo and the American Zoo and Aquarium Association (AZA) are asking you to sign a petition asking Congress to increase federal funding for this program to 2 million per animal. That\'s a grand total of 10 million dedicated for the protection of endangered species in our world! In terms of government spending, this is a small number, but this amount of funds will make a lasting impact on the survival of these beautiful and important animals. Won\'t you join us Simply click on the link below and sign the Little Rock Zoo\'s petition today! We\'ll deliver them to Congress in the next week to make sure your voice is heard!
