The petition


Elephants are included on the list of Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora. Yet, measures taken so far to protect them from the sale ivory are inadequate. Today, we are soliciting your help and influence so that a law fully banning any ivory related commercial activities, without any possible derogation, may be enacted.

We demand the implementation of the use of a fingerprinting system in order to identify, condemn and dismantle the networks of traffickers who unlawfully massacre elephants. Any form of legal ivory-related sales has to be abolished and more measures, such as the aforementioned fingerprinting, have to be taken in order to counter ivory contraband.

We also demand an open dialogue with the countries affected by poaching in order to implement educational programs that will raise awareness amongst local populations on the impacts of the sale of ivory and on the importance of wildlife preservation.

We have been requesting your help for many years concerning this issue and it is time that real actions are taken. If measures are not taken swiftly, we will all be held collectively responsible for the extinction of elephants on our planet.

We kindly ask you to take our request with great consideration and we send you our sincere regards.
