Target: Daniel M. Ashe, Director of U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service
Goal: Protect critically endangered elephants from NRA-encouraged poaching.
The NRA is not only demanding their right to kill elephants, but encouraging it among hunters and ivory traders. Elephants are almost completely gone from this world due to the ivory trade, which still exists in some areas of the world despite our greatest efforts to eliminate it for good. Millions of elephants have had their lives taken just for a single part of their body, just so greedy traders can make money off of it.
We cannot allow the NRA to get away with this. Elephants do not deserve to be killed just so people can make money off of them, and the NRA must be stopped in their continued murder of these creatures and their encouragement of others to do the same. There are roughly 415,000 elephants left in this world compared to the millions at the beginning of the 20th century. This shrinking number is not just due to elephants dying out of old age, this is them being murdered for their ivory and unable to repopulate their species.
We need to act quickly in order to save these poor creatures. We must continue to fight and put a stop to the ivory trade before it is too late. Sign this petition to demand the NRA stop their fight for and encouragement of poaching.
Dear Director Ashe,
The NRA is fighting for their right to kill elephants for their ivory and encouraging others to do the same. Currently, there are less than 500,000 elephants left in this world and the ivory trade still exists in many parts despite our greatest efforts to completely shut it down.
You must not let the NRA get away with this. Their greed and encouragement of the continued slaughter of elephants needs to stop; elephants are almost completely gone from this world, and if we do not do more to protect them it will be too late. We urge you to do everything in your power to enforce stronger, sterner laws against poaching and implement stronger protection of elephants before the new administration takes office.
