missouri black bears are in danger
Missouri black bears, a native species to our state, neared extinction in the early 1900’s. But a small number survived. Since then, the black bear population has grown to an estimated 385 and are a protected species in our state. They’ve barely recovered, but already the Missouri Department of Conservation is preparing to open up a trophy-hunting season on them. Trophy hunting black bears is unnecessary and cruel.
elections and ENDORSEMENTS
Animals only win when humane candidates do.
HSLFMO is a leading political advocacy organization for animals, making endorsements in state races based on candidates' records or positions on animal issues, rather than on political party or affiliation.
In any given election cycle, the HSLFMO (PAC) will identify, contribute, and endorse select humane candidates for office.
2019 legislative report is here!
The 2019 Missouri legislative session has officially ended. It marked the first session for which HSLFMO was present and active. It was a heavy session and big haul for organization. We celebrate the defeat of dozens of disastrous animal-related legislation that would have harmed thousands and thousands of animals in our state.
