Safari Club International ‘s Litigation team wishes to hear from SCI members who, in 2013 and/or 2014, imported into the United States trophies from species that are not listed as endangered. SCI is looking to participate in a lawsuit and to do so, we need to find a limited number of members who meet those criteria and who will be willing to help us prepare sworn statements that we can use to demonstrate SCI’s interest in the outcome of the case.
Each time SCI participates in a lawsuit, we look to SCI members for their help. SCI members are the key to SCI’s Litigation advocacy because of their willingness to step forward and help us show the court that hunters, and in particular SCI members, are affected by the lawsuits filed by anti-hunting groups and are willing to stand-up to defend rights and opportunities to hunt and to import legally hunted species.
This request applies only to SCI members, so if you are not an SCI member, please don’t respond (or better yet join SCI!) The request also does not apply to individuals who have imported a species that was classified as “endangered” under the U.S. Endangered Species Act at the time of importation. This request also does not apply if you imported your trophy prior to 2013 or after 2014. At this time, we are only looking for individuals who imported a trophy during 2013 or 2014.
So – If you
- Are a current SCI member;
- Imported a trophy into the U.S. in 2013 or 2014;
- Imported a trophy of a species that was not classified as “endangered” (“threatened” is just fine);
- Are willing to work with SCI attorneys to prepare a statement that can be filed in court;
Please contact Anna Seidman, Director of Litigation, Safari Club International at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for all you do for SCI.
