It is with a heavy heart that I come to you today to share some deeply saddening news.

For the last 16 years we have been fighting long and hard for the continued protection of our cherished Animatronic Hippos. Many more of you joined our fight 5 years ago when we launched our online campaign. Through our PSA and SaveTheAnimatronicHippos.org we were able to mobilize our movement like never before. Using our social media platforms we were able to get our message of Animatronic conservation out to the masses. In addition, we were able to make progress in our fight against barbaric Animatronic violence that has gone on for too long. We thank each and every one of our supporters who has given of their time, talents, and money. We are forever grateful for your hard work in advocating our cause. We will never be able to re-pay you. Which brings us to our next point.
Over the past few years our non-profit has been struggling financially. Hindsight as they say is 20/20. If we were to go back, there would be many things we would have done differently. Long story short, our non-profit organization was not bringing in the required profit to keep us operational. As a result, on September 3, 2016 our website SaveTheAnimatronicHippos.org will go dark. We will then move forward with the necessary legal steps toward the dissolution of our organization. This will be our last newsletter. We are deeply saddened by this situation, and everyone here at the AAHCS is very sorry that we have to share this news with you all today.

If you are one of our loyal supporters, we can only imagine the shades of sadness, anger, and fear you must be feeling right now. We share in all of those feelings with you. But don't let this news extinguish all hope. Over the last few years we have seen the obvious enthusiasm that our supporters have for these majestic robotic creatures. Although the AAHCS will no longer be an active organization in the future, we have faith that you will take up the banner and continue the fight in our absence.
Together we can continue to work toward bringing an end to the oppression. Together we can end the violence. Together as one voice we WILL be heard.
Together we will SAVE THE ANIMATRONIC HIPPOS!!!
Thank you for all of your support! We love you all.
