Stop Killing of Jaguars for Construction

Target: Xi Jinping, President of China

Goal: Stop China’s use of endangered jaguars’ body parts for their construction projects.

The South American jaguar population is on a rapid decline, and Chinese construction projects have just been uncovered as the main reason. Endangered animal parts such as bones, fangs, and skins have been in high demand in China due to their alleged medicinal properties, particularly the organs of the jaguar and other big cats. Over 100 jaguars have been killed in less than a year to provide these parts.

We cannot let this continue. Not only is the trade and use of animal body parts unethical and technically illegal, the loss of any species is detrimental to the ecosystem. Jaguars are beautiful and graceful animals who have already been facing endangerment for years, and now they could disappear completely thanks to these projects. Worse, South America is enabling the loss of this species via an illegal trade route to China, providing them with the parts they claim to need.

In order to stop the illegal trade of jaguar body parts and save the species, we must attack the root of the problem. Sign this petition to demand China stop their purchase of jaguar parts and revise their construction plans to be more ethical and environmentally friendly.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear President Xi,

Construction projects in China are the root of the near-extinction of South America’s jaguar population. Construction workers are purchasing the skin, bones, and fangs of jaguars through an illegal trade route, claiming the need for the parts’ medicinal properties. This is both unethical and dangerous, as the loss of the species will damage South America’s ecosystem.

You must call for a ban on the purchase of jaguar parts immediately. Jaguars deserve better than to be killed and chopped up for parts, especially parts whose medicinal properties may very well just be a myth. Furthermore, these projects must be revised to comply with environmental protection standards overall. Animals should not have to die for progress and development.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    W!T!F! does China have to do with SOUTH AMERICAN jaguars?!?

    I guess they’ve gone and killed off most of their own tigers and snow leopards in that part of the world, so now they have to find another source for their F’ing voodoo BS. These a-holes won’t stop until they’ve exterminated every animal they want.

    (My apologies to the true practitioners of Vodou/Vodoun)

  2. Die Natur wird immer ärmer, denn gnadenlos wird alles getötet, was einen nicht ins Konzept passt oder was man sich als Trophäe aufhängt oder hin stellt. Was sind das für arme Geschöpfe, die vor langer Weile und Reichtum am Töten Freude und Spaß haben? Es sind bemitleidenswerte Geschöpfe, die jedoch endlich von der jeweiligen Regierung des Landes gestoppt werden müssen, bevor sie die Natur weiter ihrer Schönheiten berauben und vollkommen ausplündern!

  3. Where did the Asians learn to be so cruel to so many animals, instead of appreciating the beauty and wonder they provide?!
    Haven’t they killed enough of their own–alligators, Sun Bears, Tigers, Musk Deer, Snow Leopard, etc.? Why do they want to slaughter those in other countries, majestic elephant, Rhinos, Australian Manta Rays, S. America’s Jaguars?
    Jaguars are beautiful and endangered animals. They should not be close to extinction because of China’s construction projects! Aside from the selfish inhumanity involved, much of the so-called evidence of the medicinal claims of most of these animal parts have been debunked, and alternatives are available! (Rhino horns are keratin, like our fingernails!)
    END THIS NOW! The Chinese government needs to ban the purchase of jaguar parts, immediately! Stop the illegal trade with S. America, and vow to be more ethical, humane and concerned with the environment.
