[saro_events] Slaughterhouse meeting information + ivory trade

For anyone interested in attending the slaughterhouse zoning commission event it is in ROME not Utica, as written in the previous message.  Sorry for the misinformation- contact Amber at toneuteriscuter@msn.com for more details.

Additionally, as you may be aware the USA has one of the biggest black markets for the ivory trade in the world.  Though President Obama has issued an executive order to restrict the domestic trade of ivory, more funding must be allocated to ensure that the proper regulations will be implemented.  Please sign this petition to support the allocation of $50 million to the US Fish and Wildlife Service to accomplish this task and help save elephant populations from merciless slaughter:
