AIA is appalled at Donald Trump’s lifting of the ban to import ivory and other trophies into the US.
Please sign the Avaaz petition here
Sign the petition to President Trump, the US Fish and Wildlife Service, and conservation authorities around the world:
“Elephants are facing extinction and this is no time to strip them of protection. Trophy hunting drives the slaughter of elephants, increases demand for their body parts, and projects a double standard that makes it harder to tackle ivory poaching. We call on you to do all you can to reverse the US decision to allow the import of elephant trophies, before it is too late.”
This is sickening — Trump’s just given the greenlight for bloodthirsty American hunters to murder elephants in Africa and bring their heads home as trophies.
Trump’s own son shot and mutilated an elephant — and now he’s changed the law so anyone can join the slaughter and bring home elephant body parts as souvenirs, even as ivory poaching threatens to wipe them out.
Let’s a build a massive global outcry to shame the US into dropping this disgusting plan, and when its huge, Avaaz will work with key African countries to deliver it at a major wildlife protection meeting days away.
