Delta Airlines just contacted SumOfUs to announce that it’s officially banning the shipment of endangered animal trophies on its planes.
This is all because of people power. 250,000 of us called on Delta to ban the transport of animal trophies on flights, and within days Delta announced a ban! Following Delta’s lead, we woke up today to the news that American Airlines, United Airlines and Virgin Atlantic have all announced similar policies.
It's some good news after Cecil the Lion's tragic death. With airlines refusing to profit from the transport of illegal trophies, hunters will struggle to transport their prizes home and might never go on these trips in the first place.
These four airlines now join British Airways, Air France, KLM, Singapore Airways, Lufthansa, Air Emirates, Iberia Airlines, and Qantas as airlines that are doing the right thing. These wins are a huge deal for our most precious endangered animals. But there are hundreds of other companies around the world that have yet to speak out, including shipping carriers like FedEx and UPS.
