Mission Statement
Working to protect wild animals from trophy hunting, bounty hunting and trapping.

We envision a world where all animals are recognized as valuable members of a healthy ecosystem and attain their right to survival, protection and freedom from persecution.


Integrity:  We remain true to our mission, work hard to provide exceptional service to our supporting members and maximize the support of our donors.
Positive Change:  We will strive to protect animals at the State and Federal level by using the latest peer reviewed science, case studies and public support.  We will work to educate and inform the public about the vital role predators play in a healthy ecosystem and dispel common myths about these animals.
Leadership:  We are committed to effective board leadership and action.  Empowering board members with the knowledge of good governance practices and encouraging initiative.  We strive to be a model nonprofit organization.

Our chosen purpose is to:
  • Protect the lives of wild animals from wrongful persecution and exploitation of consumptive individuals.  We strive to ban trophy hunting, bounty hunting, wildlife killing contests and trapping in Utah and the United States.
  • Educate the public about wildlife and teach a genuine appreciation for their vital role in a healthy ecosystem, as well as how to peacefully coexist using non-lethal methods of predator management.
  • Use science-based data to inform, educate and change the policy of institutions responsible for the management of these animals for the sake of all citizens, not just a select few.

We strive to reduce the unnecessary persecution and suffering of predators in Utah and the United States.  We aim to accomplish this effort by utilizing the latest peer-reviewed science available to influence policy decisions that have both animal and human interests in mind.
