3. Find Lords Interested in Animal Welfare
Identify members of the House of Lords with an interest in animal welfare and environmental issues or other areas you are interested in.
Write to as many anti-cruelty members as possible. Search for Lords' interests, speeches, and contributions on the Parliament website.
4. Reach Out to Lords in All-Party Parliamentary GroupsSome Lords are part of All-Party Parliamentary Groups (APPGs) related to animal welfare, such as the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Banning Trophy Hunting. Reach out to these members for their support.
How Your Support Makes a Difference
Lobbying members of the House of Lords is not as straightforward as lobbying MPs, as Lords do not represent geographic areas (constituencies).
Your efforts to identify and contact Lords interested in animal welfare and environmental issues can greatly impact the bill's success.
By taking these steps to support the Hunting Trophies [Import] Prohibition Bill and the Campaign to Ban Trophy Hunting, you are helping to protect wildlife and raise awareness about the cruelty of trophy hunting.
Thank you for your help in making a difference for wildlife and the environment.
