Japan: Shut Down Ivory Trade Now

Target: Shinzō Abe, Prime Minister of Japan

Goal: Shut down the ivory trade in Japan.

Elephants continue to die as Japan’s ivory business remains larger than any other country’s. Despite Japan stating they would tighten control over their domestic ivory trade months ago, it continues to thrive as the country has more registered ivory dealers, manufacturers, and wholesalers than any other at this point.

We cannot allow this to continue. Elephants are just barely being given a chance to repopulate in the wake of more countries banning ivory, but their efforts will be in vain should Japan continue to allow the trade. One of the country’s largest online retailers has already stopped selling ivory, but in the grand scheme of things that is only one small step. Hundreds of elephants are dying for the sake of a profit, and the species as a whole is still vulnerable.

We must protect these animals at all costs. Sign this petition to demand Japan shut down its ivory trade once and for all.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Prime Minister Shinzō,

Your country’s ivory trade is costing hundreds of elephants their lives, despite your promise to tighten control over it months ago. While one of your largest online retailers stopping their sale of ivory is a step in the right direction, it changes little in the grand scheme of things. Ivory sales continue to thrive, robbing elephants of a chance to repopulate their species as they are killed en masse.

You must put a stop to this. Elephants are much too vulnerable already, and many other countries have ended their part in the ivory trade to protect them. Now, it is time to do your part. Shut down your ivory trade completely and help us protect elephants from future slaughter.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  6. JPN is a nation of double standards – as famously put by “Honne and Tatemae”. And they are extremely conscious of losing face, and as is often said, JPN has a culture of shame. But don’t be fooled by this, they feel shame only when their shameful acts become known to others. (Maybe shame and guilt are different…) So, shaming them (like this petition) is usually very effective.
