About the Issue
Oregon has a long tradition of conservation and animal welfare standards. From elephants to sea turtles, many iconic species face the threat of extinction due to demand for their parts. Save Endangered Animals Oregon is working to put a measure on the November 2016 ballot to prohibit the sale of products and parts from 12 imperiled types of animals.
By voting yes on this measure, Oregon voters will help save sea turtles, sharks, rays, elephants, rhinos, cheetahs, and other critically threatened or endangered species from poaching, cruelty, and the threat of extinction.
