Dear Mr Wallace

Filed in Conservation, In the Press on May.30, 2022

Ten world-renowned wildlife photographers have united to send a letter to Secretary of State for Defence Ben Wallace calling on the Ministry of Defence to stop using the fur of slaughtered black bears for ceremonial headgear.

“As wildlife photographers who have spent our lives documenting the beauty and fragility of the natural world, we are acutely aware of the need to protect – not pillage – the living planet, which includes the animals we share it with. It is for this reason that we ask you to stop funding the slaughter of black bears for the Queen’s Guard’s caps.”
What Can You Do?

Join PETA in urging the MoD to replace the bearskin used for the caps with a free faux fur and save lives along with taxpayer funds.

A government petition on the issue has been launched. When it reaches 100,000 signatures, a much-needed Parliamentary debate about the bearskin hats will take place.
