Speak Up for Bears in Florida

The FWC will vote on a proposed bear hunt at the upcoming commission meeting in Sarasota on June 24 and your voice is urgently needed. Please join The HSUS, Sierra FL and the Center for Biological Diversity at one of the following meetings to find out what you can do to speak up for bears! Florida bears were once on the brink of extinction from overhunting and massive habitat loss. The majority of Floridians want to see this animal protected and conserved, but the FWC wants to allow trophy hunters to kill hundreds of bears each year, starting this October. Don’t let them silence you!

Reserve your space today to prepare for the final vote. Contact Kate MacFall at kmacfall@humanesociety.org if you have additional questions.
