2016, saw the release of a new single “Weapon of Choice” which led to another high concept music video directed by Michael Sarna and Jon Mack. This video addressed the brutality of poaching and trophy hunting of our endangered wildlife. The conception of this video inspired Jon to form her foundation ‘Defending the Endangered’ in 2015. This foundation is currently at work raising awareness and funds to help non-profits who protect and rehabilitate endangered animals devastated by the wicked effects of poaching across the globe.
