Stop Trump’s Attempt to Destroy Elephant Population

Target: Jim Kurth, Director of the United States Fish and Wildlife Service

Goal: Keep ban on importing trophy elephant heads from Africa in place.

President Trump has lifted an Obama-era ban on importing elephant trophies from Africa. The United States Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) has confirmed that it will begin issuing permits, much to the delight of the National Rifle Association. The move received hefty praise and justification from Trump’s supporters.

This is unacceptable. Not only are elephants still critically endangered due to the ivory trade still clinging to life in some countries, but Trump is blatantly lifting a ban set in place to protect them all so his sons can bring their heads home to parade about as great accomplishments. This man’s selfishness could potentially destroy the entire elephant population. The USFWS should not have even considered giving in to Trump’s demands, much less complied with them.

We cannot allow more elephants to die for the sake of Trump’s thoughtless whims. Sign this petition to demand the USFWS immediately revoke the licenses of big game hunters and fight to put the ban back in place.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Director Kurth,

Your decision to comply with President Trump’s rollback of protection for elephants is unacceptable. There is nothing beneficial in allowing hunters to kill these animals for the sake of importing their heads as trophies; elephants are still endangered, and should hunters be given the permission to target them once more, they will be completely extinct in a matter of years.

Revoke the licenses you have issued at once, and tell Trump “no.” There is never any excuse to hunt down endangered species, and Trump is not even pretending to have a good one. Elephants are much too important to die out, and you must continue to help us protect them.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]
