Stop Government-Sponsored Poaching of Endangered Species

Hawksbill_by_Aquaimages

Target: Chen Jining, Minister of Environmental Protection, People’s Republic of China

Goal: End government-assisted harvesting of endangered turtles and giant clams.

China has been killing giant clams, coral, and turtles, according to a recent investigation by an international tribunal. The report concludes that the government has not only been aware of the poaching of these endangered species, but has also participated in harvesting and killing these vulnerable animals.

The Permanent Court of Arbitration, an international justice initiative, was tasked with investigating claims that China has been damaging the South China Sea’s ecology. The panel found that China not only tolerated the poaching of endangered species, but also provided armed protection for the vessels slaughtering giant clams and turtles.

According to one of the experts on the panel, “China … [has] decided not to worry about the environmental aspect” of their actions. China has often denied allegations, but has fallen silent on this matter, suggesting that the nation is willing to admit its guilt. Sign the petition below and demand an end to this state-sponsored massacre.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Mr. Chen,

I am writing in regards to the findings of the Permanent Court of Arbitration, which has determined that the Chinese government is not only aware of the poaching of giant clams and turtles, but actively participates in the harvesting of these valuable animals.

As an emerging world power, your nation has an obligation to respect the environment. To exploit endangered species for profit is unethical and potentially illegal, and I urge you to re-consider your policies. These animals are on the verge of extinction and deserve protection. Please increase protections for these animals and end the state-sponsored massacre.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    The Chinese encourage poaching and cruelty to animals everywhere, they are cruel backward savages.

  3. THE CHINESE DON’T CARE WHAT WE THINK! THEY DON’T CARE ABOUT OUR “PETITIONS” ETC.

    THEY NEED TO BE PRESSURED BY THE GOVERNMENTS OF THE U.S., EU, ETC TO HAVE ANY HOPE OF CHANGE!

    Chinese people believe that they are allowed to kill, torture and make profits from every living being, with no thought to the pain and agony they inflict. They are wiping out species by the millions. This PRIVLAGE, or entitlement needs to be stopped!!!!

    Well, what a surprise!! The cretinous and sadistic Chinese again! There’s nothing they won’t stoop to and they won’t stop ’til they’ve wiped out out every other living thing on the planet. Can’t someone please just wipe THEM out….?

  6. Karen Eicholtz says:

    “Harvesting”? Really. These are not crops like corn or wheat. What you’re doing isn’t harvesting but poaching and murdering.
    You’re going to wipe out other species and what do you think will happen next? Your citizens are wearing face masks in public. What does it take to realize you’re not getting it right? Obviously you don’t get it because you can’t get it. Duh.
