My concern with PIJAC is that they seem completely out of touch with reptile related issues. There's been a bit of activity surrounding the Lacey Act and larger constrictors, yes? The "Breaking News" section of their website doesn't even mention it. It does talk about HR511 - Florida's Representative Rooney Proposes Large Constrictor Ban Under The Lacey Act (I think it died in committee, it doesn't say on the website)...but the actual rule change that has ocurred is not mentioned.

Also, I think in 40 years, with significant pet industry backing, not just herps, PIJAC would have the financial resources to act on this issue without the "issue-by-issue" fundraising that USARK is forced to do. This constant fundraising by USARK is because their support IS solely from the reptile industry, not the broader pet industry at-large.

I think if PIJAC wants to grow its membership in the herp world, it needs to come out of the shadows and become active in THIS issue, not maintain its silence. I am not so sure they are really interested in u;, they have been completely silent from what I can find. Does anyone have any recent or relevant communications from PIJAC on this issue that they can share? I'd love to be proven wrong!

Mark
