  • List of Action Sites - Act Now. Save our Hobby. Save your Rights.

    We need to compile a list of sites that are offering actions that can be taken to contact representatives, legislators, the media, and the public as a whole to stop S373, HR2811, and HR699.

    Add any you know of but don't see here.

    USARK: Kill S373

    National Python & Boa Ban Action Center

    United States Association of Reptile Keepers : Take Action and Contact Congress |

    USARK

    Government Affairs | Pet Industry Joint Advisory Council
    and
    Congressional Python Ban | Pet Industry Joint Advisory Council

    Contact the White House | The White House
    Sample Letter to President Obama to be used with above link:
    President Obama,
    S373 aka the Python Ban is being considered in the Senate right now. It will destroy thousands of jobs and bankrupt thousands of American families. The bill has been sensationalized and politicized and has no basis in real science. In fact a report generated by USGS to justify this bill has been called unscientific by an independent panel of scientists. It is being pushed by powerful special interest groups and it will hurt me financially. It is a confiscation of my personal property rights and will not solve the problems proponents claim it addresses. This is clearly a situation that has become politically driven and ignores science that does not support S373. Please do not allow politics to trump good science and sound policy. This is wrong and you promised in your election campaign not to allow situations like this to occur. Please stop S373.

            Thanks for the links. I will go to them and follow through with all petitions and letters, even if I have already done it once. It doesn't hurt to send multiple letters and emails.

              Just a reminder: in the links above USARK and NatPet.org both offer to have letters sent via email and in person to your local reps. Please spend the $3.00/letter to have them hand delivered too! It's a nominal fee, and it will help make that much more of an impact. The sight and weight of physical mail still has an impact.

              IMO: if you can't afford the $3.00/letter you can't afford your snakes. Jeff has said that he's spent almost $5000.00 of his own money in this fight. ...we can spend $3.00/letter.

              Every little bit helps!

              FIGHT!

                        Here's what I just did , was discussing this over Christmas. It came to light
                        nobody (Politician , busy person) wants to read a really long E-mail or letter


                        Quick point high lights of the main issues for easy reading
                        is a way to address this problem

                        Then provide longer text or even info links later in the letter

                        -------------------------------------------

                        December 25, 2009
                        Dear Senator Durbin,
                        Dear Senator Burris,

                        Please Oppose S373 aka 'The Python Ban' Now "The Boa Ban"

                        1)Unscientific process ( USGS report ) in stead of USFWS scientific process - not good

                        2)Will Destroy 3 Billion $$ a year industry (reptile Industry) Tens of thousands of LOST JOBS

                        3) Snakes in Question only a problem in extreme South Florida
                        Only a Florida issue not the other 48 states

                        4)The Legislation S373 does not even address any Feral Python issue in Florida anyway

                        5)Sets terrible precedent by legislating science for the sake of political expedience. Please oppose S373.


                        6) Thousands of LOST JOBS!! Including mine


                        Please oppose S373 aka 'The Python Ban'. It would by pass the accepted USFWS process for amending the Lacey Act and legislatively add 9 species of boas and pythons to the Injurious Wildlife list. If passed as written it would threaten a viable US industry producing high quality captive bred reptiles for hobbyists, research, zoos, TV & film, museums and fashion industry. The USGS report being used as justification for these draconian measures has been characterized by independent scientists as "unscientific" and "not suitable as the basis for legislative or regulatory policies". I appreciate the difficulties Burmese Pythons may pose to South Florida, but it is a problem that is endemic only to South Florida and should be dealt with at the state level. S373 encompasses far more than Burmese pythons and will hurt my family and business. It does not address the underlying problems proponents claim. S. 373 makes no provisions for the disposition of over 2 million snakes already in captivity in the US. It will create a situation where thousands of Americans are in possession of Injurious Wildlife and subject to felony prosecution under the Lacey Act. This bill will be bad for our state, bad for jobs and sets terrible precedent by legislating science for the sake of political expedience. Please oppose S373.
                        Sincerely,

                        Mr. Larry Micklevitz
