End the Sale of Endangered Species in Grocery Stores

Target: Fu Zhenghua, Minister of Justice, China

Goal: Preserve and protect endangered species by outlawing their sale in grocery stores.

Grocery stores in China are selling critically endangered species, including giant salamanders, sturgeons, and alligators. Sign the petition to demand the government of China outlaw the sale of endangered species in grocery stores.

While selling endangered species is regulated (businesses require a special permit), it is not altogether forbidden and it is quite easy for businesses to ignore getting a permit. One grocery store was allegedly selling endangered Chinese alligators as recently as last month without a permit.

Sign the petition to demand China outlaw the sale of endangered species. Permits and regulations are not enough. Endangered animals should not be for sale.


Dear Minister Zhenghua,

Just last month, a grocery store in your nation was caught selling endangered species like alligators and salamanders without a permit. This event shows the flaws in your permitting system. Endangered animals should not be for sale in “some cases.” They should not be for sale at all.

I demand you outlaw the sale of endangered species. They should not be for sale in the aisles of a grocery store. They should be preserved and protected at all costs.

    PLEASE!!! STOP!!!! Sick as hell, when China has to eat these majestic creatures. Hope who ever is purchasing and eating these creatures die of a horrible disease, maybe that would be a wake up call not to eat what shouldn’t be consumed. Idiots.

  2. Helen Drinoczky says:

    The list of animal cruelty issues in China gets longer and longer.
    This needs to be stopped.

  3. What can we expect from people who torture and butcher dogs for an annual dog meat festival? The Chinese have no compassion for living creatures; they only care about how animals can be exploited for their bogus folk medicine and barbaric cuisine.
