Urge Your Representative to Support the Traveling Wild and Exotic Animal Protection Act!

Please help us stop the suffering of elephants, tigers, bears, and other wild animals in circuses!


Urge the New York State Legislature to support The Traveling Wild and Exotic Animal Protection Act (A.5407/S.5971) by signing our petition and calling your state representatives!


Over 20 countries and 40 municipalities, including two in New York, have banned or restricted the use of wild animals in traveling circuses due to gross animal welfare and public safety concerns.  Let's add the State of New York to that list!
