Politely but firmly ask them to support Born Free’s call for a comprehensive review of the Dangerous Wild Animals Act and its Schedule, and point out that decisions on whether or not wild animals can be kept as pets should be based on:

- Whether the trade is likely to compromise the conservation of species in the wild
- Potential environmental concerns, such as the escape of invasive species
- Full consideration of the risks to public and animal health & safety, including zoonoses
